Jake Gyllenhaal Looks Nearly Unrecognizable For New Movie Everest: See His Transformation
Brokeback Mountain's Jake Gyllenhaal is getting in touch with his mountain man side again — but it's for a completely different role in the 2015 film Everest.
The actor is starring as expedition group leader Scott Fischer, who tragically died in a storm while climbing Mount Everest in 1996. The movie is based on Jon Krakauer's book, Into Thin Air, which is based on real events from the disaster that killed several climbers and left others stranded by the storm.
Jake, who's pictured looking super clean-cut at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Governors Awards in November 2013, made a complete transformation for the role. Between his beard, mustache, and long hair, we hardly recognize the actor.
