For an actor so universally beloved (and whose handsome mug should, ideally, be plastered across cinema screens as much as possible), Jake Gyllenhaal has a surprisingly spare filmography. Unlike many of his peers the actor seems to actually be a little picky about the roles he chooses to play - which he can afford to, since he's a damn fine actor, and he's made a lot of good choices over the years. Even casting aside the fact that he nearly ended up replacing Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man 2. This weekend sees the release of Southpaw. While Gyllenhaal is getting some praise for his portrayal of Billy Hope, a boxer with serious out-of-ring issues, particularly in reference to the impressive bulking up, but the film itself has had a rather tepid critical reaction. Which is rather odd given some of the actor's recent successes. Given the stark contrast, there's no better time to have a look over that rather spartan IMDb entry and weigh up what were the greatest triumphs (and, yes, even on a CV that small, the occasional blips) in his career thus far. Here are five awesome Jake Gyllenhaal performances, and five that royally sucked.
