Jake Gyllenhaal has criminal talent

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal has a "sixth sense" when it comes to detecting crime, claims his co-star Michael Peña.

The pair shadowed real police officers while researching for their roles as Los Angeles cops in the new action drama End of Watch. Michael has revealed Jake could instinctively detect shady activity during their ride alongs.

"[Jake's] got a sixth sense. There's a couple times we went on ride-alongs and he [pointed something out], and then all of a sudden we pull by and there's four dudes leaning back in a Suburban," Michael told ET. "I think...we could hit the streets together and be good cops."

Jake relished the opportunity to spend time with police officers before working on the movie.

The 31-year-old hunk was impressed by the strong bond between the men despite the dangerous situations they were often placed in.

"We went through a lot over the five months that we were on the streets; we saw a lot of things, a lot of violence..." Jake explained. "But to me, the thing that left the biggest impression was the relationship between the two officers. Over that time, it was their friendship and their humour in the car that really left an impression on me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
