Jake Gyllenhaal is set to make his Broadway debut later this year.

The Hollywood actor will star in a production of Nick Payne's Constellations at the Samuel J Friedman Theatre, the Manhattan Theatre Club said.

The show, which has previously been a hit in London, presents several permutations of a single relationship, where in some scenarios the couple live happily together, while in others they don't even make it to a first kiss.

It will be directed by Michael Longhurst, who also directed Jake on the New York stage in 2012 in Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet.

The Brokeback Mountain actor also trod the boards in London in 2002 in a revival of Kenneth Lonergan's This Is Our Youth.

Previews of Constellations begin on December 16.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
