* RealLifeRelative: He and sister Maggie played siblings in ''Film/DonnieDarko''. Subverted with Creator/PeterSarsgaard in ''Film/{{Jarhead}}'' because they weren't brothers-in-law (Pete is Maggie's eventual husband) at the time.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Was set to play Franchise/SpiderMan in ''Film/SpiderMan2'' due to Creator/TobeyMaguire having injured his back while filming ''Film/{{Seabiscuit}}''. While Gyllenhaal was preparing for the role, Tobey recovered to reprise his role as Spider-Man.
** Auditioned for and was one of the top contenders for the role of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batman/Bruce Wayne]] in ''Film/BatmanBegins''. Was also on the shortlist to play Harvey Dent in [[Film/TheDarkKnight the sequel.]]
** Was, along with Creator/MattDamon, the studio's first choice for the role of Jake Sully in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', but director Creator/JamesCameron chose to cast the (back then) more unknown Sam Worthington in the lead role instead.
** His parents forbade him to be in ''Film/TheMightyDucks'', as the film would have taken him out of town for two months (it was shot in Minnesota).
** He was cast as one of the Princes in ''Film/IntoTheWoods'', but dropped out to do ''Film/{{Nightcrawler}}'' instead
