Gyllenhaal's Santa stunt
09:30 30 April 2006
Jake Gyllenhaal would wear a Santa cap on his penis to win a film role.
The 'Brokeback Mountain' star says he is prepared to do almost anything to convince directors to cast him in projects he wants to be involved with.
The actor confessed to Britain's Arena magazine: "You beg them no matter what you're doing - whether you're wearing a Santa cap on your d**k or making love to Heath Ledger.'
Jake, who pleaded with Sam Mendes for a part in Gulf War flick 'Jarhead', starred alongside Peter Sarsgaard - his sister Maggie's fiancé - in the Gulf War movie.
The star insists the film, which depicts the lack of combat during the conflict, is accurate and insists US soldiers had to find unusual things to do to pass the time.
He said: "You send them to the desert for 122 days and they sit in the same tent and do nothing except a little too much masturbating.'
