How amazing is Jake Gyllenhaal?

Contribution by German Flowers

My favorite actor of all time would have to be Jake Gyllenhaal. I started watching his movies on my satellite tv (direct tv satellite hd) as a little girl. Fell in love with all of his work. My favorite movie of all time happens to be Donnie Darko which he was the star of. I fell in love with that movie for the fact that it was so creepy yet amazing at the same time. The fact that you have to actually pay attention to see what is going on and you can watch it over and over again and still be like wait what just happened always captures my attention. Its also a very dramatic movie with some romance and a lot of horror. It has a lot of elements that I really enjoy in my movies. Jake started acting at the age of ten with the movie October Sky. He has been in a lot of great movies including The day after tomorrow, jarhead, brokeback mountain and the goodgirl. In 2004 he was also chosen to be part of the rock the vote campaign.

I don't get too much time to watch television these days, but every day during my lunch hour I make sure and turn on The Steve Wilkos Show at 1:00 pm. Steve Wilkos usually has guests that have cheated on their spouses or hurt they're children. He asks several questions, and at the end of the show, he always reads the results of a previously administered lie detector exam. I enjoy The Steve Wilkos Show so much, even if I leave the room, I pause the TV, so I don't miss a thing!

Steve Wilkos used to be a bodyguard on the Jerry Springer show. He is also a formy police officer, and was in the army. Because of his background, Steve tends to be a very intimidating talk show host. He has a big build, a loud voice, and is very passionate about what he believes in. By the end of each show, he has usually taken a chair from one or more of his guests, and thrown them across the stage. Although his demeanor comes across as a bully, he cares very much for people, and always offers his help if the guest is willing to accept it.
