Will Jakey sing?

They’re making a film adaptation of Into The Woods directed by Rob Marshall. Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp are already attached. Apparently Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are now in talks to join them...? That’s looking like an impressive cast, not unlike the one Marshall put together for Nine a few years ago. I imagine working with Meryl is a big draw. And certainly worth the vocal challenge.
Not sure about Chris Pine but we’ve heard Jakey singing before. He wasn’t serious about it that time, but I’ll still remember it forever.
It was Saturday Night Live. It was the year of Dreamgirls, a year after Brokeback Mountain. I’ve posted it here before but it’s worth another look, especially for those of you who’ve not seen it before. Look at those backup singers! Rudolph! Poehler! Wiig!
Here’s Jakey last week speaking at the Headstrong Project’s Words of War event in New York and Chris Pine at the Star Trek Into Darkness Hollywood premiere last night.
