So, I did not expect him to appear on John Mulaney's Nexflix show, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch.
The show is, well, odd. It has its moments, but then some of those moments can kind of go long. Too long. With kids. While the song about Grandma's new boyfriend, Paul, was left of center it made us laugh a bit and one or two others were ok.
Yes, with no cable and housebound, we are looking at a lot of different tv stuff.
So, the only known (i.e. listed) guest on the show was Richard Kind, we weren't expecting David Byrne or Gyllenhaal (both of whom would show up on SNL when Mulaney hosted a few weeks back).
Still, Mr. Music's (Gyllenhaal) number might be the best thing you see Jake in......ever. ...and I think he blinks a total of three times in his seven plus minutes, so that's a little unnerving. His singing might be better than his acting and it's funny when the words don't rhyme.
It is just a wee bit out there, and it might be the best thing you see all week.
Song by: John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch ft. Jake Gyllenhaal
