Video: Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña Share a Moment in End of Watch
Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are two L.A. cops who are on a hit list after they confiscate a drug gang's cache of bling, firearms and cash during a traffic stop in one of the city's most notorious precincts in the upcoming crime drama End of Watch. In this first clip from the film, a clean-shaven (and smooth skulled) Gyllenhaal and Peña share a moment of levity while on patrol with some chatty back-and-forths about each setting each other up on dates.
The pair bond about hooking up, with Peña's character Officer Zavala telling his officer buddy to pick someone from his background: "Sweet brown sugar," he croons. Gyllenhaal's Officer Brian Taylor launches into female character voice in playful mocking, spurning Peña to do a bit of tit-for-tat. The clip shows a moment of levity compared to the official trailer (below) which is chock-full of all the action and firearms to be expected from a film about police and drug cartels.
End of Watch is directed by David Ayer, whose directorial debut Harsh Times also took place in South Central L.A. John Lesher produced the feature, which will be released September 28th in the U.S.
End of Watch also stars Anna Kendrick, Cody Horn and America Ferrera.
