Web Exclusive: Jake Gyllenhaal on Police Ride-Alongs
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal opens up about going on police ride-alongs as part of his preparation for the upcoming film "End of Watch," in which he plays a police officer.
Gyllenhaal tells Anderson that after seeing what officers have to go through every day, "Your real job ends up seeming so absurd. That's the bottom line."
Jake adds, "I remember going back home on a number of nights, 4 AM, 5 AM, sun's rising… and going back in my bed and taking two, three hours to get to bed, and thinking like, this is what every police officer goes through when they're doing that shift every single morning."
