There is also one possible objection for Christian duty: Jake Gyllenhaal. Like Ledger, he was still young for the role, but their experience auditioning for Christian gave them something of a laugh while on the set of Brokeback Mountain, according to Gyllenhaal’s 2018 interview GQ Australia.
“I auditioned for Red mill! Baz Luhrmann selected three artists. It was Ewan, Heath, and me. And we auditioned a lot of different artists, it was a long process, “he recalls.” But I never knew Heath, I just heard about him. We will be shuffled in and out of the rooms. Sure enough they put me in a locker and locked the door and Heath would come in and then move Heath to the door. I did not see him. “
After they meet, they both bond their “mutual frustration” to disappear at the chance to star. Red mill!, but it also turned into a variety of comedies. He said it, “Heath called me and he was like, [affects Ledger impersonation] ‘Hey mate, I have news for you’. I was like, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Baz just offered me the next movie. I just want you to know, the king denied it! ‘”
