VIDEO: Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Not Being Nervous for SEA WALL / A LIFE
During the interview, Colbert asks Gyllenhaal if he is still daunted by going out on stage alone, to which Gyllenhaal replied, "Yes, but it's not as nerve racking as it was before, which is a strange feeling." He continues by saying, "There's the weird feeling when you step out on stage and you're not nervous. And it's not good."

Sea Wall / A Life is a heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love. Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens(The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), performs Sea Wall, an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable. Gyllenhaal continues his artistic collaboration with Olivier Award-nominated playwright Nick Payne(Constellations) in A Life, an emotional examination of how sons become fathers and the transformative power of love. Together, under the direction of Carrie Cracknell, Sea Wall / A Life is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
