VIDEO: Jake Gyllenhaal Admits He Knows Broadway Better Than Baseball
While promoting his new film STRONGER on last night's CONAN, Jake Gyllenhaal was asked about his knowledge of sports by host CONAN O'Brien. The actor revealed, "I played sports, I like sports, I am actually athletic, but we never really knew any of the details. My dad was like, 'let's go to the theater.'" He went on to joke, 'So I know who was traded from the Lyceum Theater on Broadway, the Cort Theater in 1982. I know when Meryl Streep killed it at The Public. I know stuff like that, but it didn't really do me a lot of service in high school!" Watch the appearance below!
Jake Gyllenhaal most recently appeared on Broadway in the 2017 revival of SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE. He made his Broadway debut in 2015's CONSTELLATIONS.
Since premiering in November 2010, CONAN has been a hit with young adults, consistently delivering the youngest audience of any late-night series. The series has proven to be a phenomenal success in the digital arena, chalking up a total of 3.4 billion video views. On the social media front, O'Brien has drawn well over 23 million followers on Twitter, making him one of the most-followed hosts in late night.
