Holy Sh*t! Here’s Who Should Have Been Singing in La La Land

With all due respect to Ryan Gosling’s charm and acting skills, his (and Emma Stone’s) whispery singing is NOT what I was expecting when I went to see All-Hail-the-Hollywood-Musical’s-Return aka multiple Academy Award nominated film, La La Land. While I enjoy both actors, you can count me among the underwhelmed by both the singing and the dancing. And, as soon as I caught this wonderful long shot taken by Cary Joji Fukunaga — who Gyllenhaal had invited to his Sunday in the Park with George rehearsal — all I could think about was:  WHY didn’t he play Sebastian?

Just watch this, and tell me those little goosebumps aren’t working their way up your arm.

Color me stupified; am I the only one who didn’t know Jake Gyllenhaal had a voice like this? Just gorgeous.

Gyllenhaal will be in Sunday in the Park with George at the Hudson Theater, NYC February 11th through April 23rd.
