jakeSMshot.JPGIn the Wall Street Journal, John Lippman asks "Will Jake Take?", considering whether or not Jake Gyllenhaal (pictured right in an iPOP photo by indieWIRE's Brian Brooks) is a Hollywood star.

Whether or not Jake makes it big in tinsel town, the guy is clearly an indie success story and Focus Features must be loving the fact that "Jarhead" made way more money than expected in its opening weekend. It all bodes well for the type awareness that the company will need for "Brokeback Mountain" when its release widens, and it gives Jake a nice boost during an awards season in which most Oscar talk seemed to be swirling around co-star Heath Ledger. Now he'll be an even more likely awards candidate for his role in the romantic "gay cowboy movie."
