    After what happened in Brussels you would think Jimmy has the common
    decency to not put “bombed” in the title of the video

  2. Erik Arustamyan says:

    I like this show but Jimmys laugh it so fake

  3. Nick Duel says:

    Just goes to show you that even great actors like Jake Gyllenhaal wont
    always get the rolls they try out for.

  4. ShadowZeal says:

    I think he’s TOO good to play Frodo

  5. miguel curiel says:

    fake laugh ?

  6. ScubaGolz says:

    He’s so cool:/

  7. jggg gjC says:

    He is good actor

  8. linger4605 says:

    Seeing him sitting there…he’d be a great Batman (Bruce Wayne)

  9. Alexandra De Backer says:

    Am I the only one to think that Jake is actually slimmer than before?

  10. Ryan MacDonald says:

    why does jimmy fake laughing make everyone so upset? I’m not saying he
    does, but if he does why all the emotion?

  11. Nicholas Thompkins says:

    I actually think Gyllenhaal would’ve been a better Frodo, maybe not at that
    time, but looking back on it. He’s become a killer actor, and frankly I
    found Elijah Wood to be almost emotionless in those movies.

  12. Cameron O'Neill says:

    Jake is a pretty good actor honestly. Should have been placed in the film

  13. DANIAL AZ says:
