Jake Gyllenhaal Wants To Work for You, Owns a Car, in 'Nightcrawler' Craigslist Teaser

July 22, 2014


Of all the anonymous people on Craigslist claiming to be a thin Jake Gyllenhaal looking for some late night work, at last one actually is. That's because it's the real, suddenly-thin Jake Gyllenhaal, who has put up an ad and accompanying video looking for a job on the site.

"Hard Worker Seeking Employment," the Los Angeles Craigslist post reads. "My name is Louis Bloom. I'm looking for full-time employment. No job too big or too small. I have my own car and phone. Persistent, punctual, polite and hardworking. Will work nights."

As it turns out, it's all a would-be viral ad for Nightcrawler, the directing debut of The Fall and Bourne Legacy writer Dan Gilroy. In the film, Gyllenhaal plays a guy who stumbles into L.A.'s freelance crime journalism scene. As suggested by the ad, he apparently also pitches himself for some jobs, because that's pretty much all this monologue of a first teaser suggests. Have a look at it below, and please, find a place in the modern workforce for a needy bubble boy.
