“Demolition” actor Jake Gyllenhaal explained his crazy dance scene throughout the streets of New York City in a behind-the-scenes clip of the film, describing it as “totally dangerous.”
“Jean-Marc [Vallée] said, ‘I want Davis to just dance through the streets of New York City,’ and I went ‘OK,’ and he said, ‘Here’s the iPod, here’s the earphones, dance, we’ll follow you, just dance around on the streets,'” Gyllenhaal said in an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip. “Totally dangerous, totally reckless, super fun.”
The film follows Davis (Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, who lost his wife in a tragic car crash and continues to unravel in his day-to-day life. He writes a complaint letter to a vending machine company, which then turns into a series of letters revealing personal details. These letters catch the attention of service rep Karen (Watts) and the two form an unlikely connection.
“We’re all trying to make a great movie,” Gyllenhaal added in the clip.
