Wherefore art thou?

Those who track such goings-on may remember Jake Gyllenhaal was supposed to be starting rehearsals about now for his Shakespearean debut, playing Romeo to Lynn Collins' Juliet on the West End. No longer.

"Jake is now so hot that he has movies back-to-back for the next two years," says Laurence Boswell, "and by then he'll be too old." Boswell helmed the 23-year-old's award-winning West End turn two years ago in "This Is Our Youth."

The fact is, says Boswell, "Romeo" discussions took place when Gyllenhaal "was king of the indies. That was when he was going to be the next big thing; now, he's become the next big thing."
