Jake Gyllenhaal is iconic for the 2005 critically-acclaimed film "Brokeback Mountain," where he starred as Jack Twist opposite Ennis Del Mar, played by the late actor Heath Ledger.

The drama movie, released 16 years ago, led Gyllenhall to score an Academy Award nomination. The 40-year-old actor has another exciting movie that seems worthy of another nomination.

Gyllenhall shared on Instagram a teaser of his upcoming film, "The Guilty," which premieres on October 1. In the clip, he is featured as a 911 emergency operator responding to a distressed caller. A fan quickly commented:

"You know it's gonna be a good thrill ride when Jake starts smashing computer keyboards, desk lamps, or bathroom mirrors. I'm all in!"

Gyllenhaal plays LAPD officer Joe Baylor, who got demoted to a 911 desk duty after some unspecified offense. The thriller film, a remake of a 2018 Danish film, is directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Despite critical acclaim, Gyllenhaal has not received as many awards for his powerful roles.

Besides his fans, fellow celebrities commented on Gyllenhaal's impressive performance. Actor Sean Hayes expressed excitement while Rico Rodriguez exclaimed the film was looking good.

Many viewers are hoping that Gyllenhaal's upcoming film would earn him another chance for an Academy Award nomination. The last time he was nominated for a movie was in "Brokeback Mountain."

At the time, he was nominated for best supporting actor, but the award went to George Clooney. However, "Brokeback Mountain" scored three Academy Award wins for directing, adapted screenplay, and original score.

Despite critical acclaim, Gyllenhaal has not received as many awards for his powerful roles. One of his notable films, "Nightcrawler," also failed to earn him an Academy Award nomination.

Although he failed to secure a spot for the said prestigious award, he earned nominations from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, and Critics Choice.

Meanwhile, aside from his moving performances in films, Gyllenhaal recently caught fans' attention with his new Luna Rossa Ocean ad under the luxury brand Prada, which proves he is a multi-faceted star.

The "Velvet Buzzsaw" star rides a boat in the middle of a dark ocean in the campaign video. The Italian sailing team Luna Rossa is the inspiration behind Prada's new ad and perfume.
