From Regis to Rosie to many others across the country, people are talking today about the way Jake Gyllenhaal opened “Saturday Night Live.”
Gyllenhaal told the audience that he wanted to do something to thank fans of his movie “Brokeback Mountain.” So he put on a black wig, ripped off his clothes to reveal a long, spangled black dress and sang Effie’s big song from “Dreamgirls,” “And I’m Telling You, I’m Not Going.”
Gyllenhaal really got into it, singing in a falsetto and showing off his biceps in his sleeveless gown.
The audience went nuts, including the two cast members dressed as cowboys.
