Jake Gyllenhaal - Jake Gyllenhaal Talked Police Out Of Searching Mumford & Sons' Tour Train
The Brokeback Mountain star joined his pals on the road for their Railroad Revival Tour from Oakland, California to New Orleans, Louisiana, but their journey came to a brief halt as they made their way to Marfa, Texas in April, 2011.
Gyllenhaal reveals he immediately took charge of the situation in a bid to help out his musician friends after studying to portray a cop for End of Watch.
He explains, "We got stopped by the state troopers at one point in Texas... I'm not sure (what for)... I think they just stopped us to see if there were (any) shenanigans they could have arrested people for, but there weren't...
"I was researching to play a police officer actually, and I thought I really knew how to talk to police officers. At the time I had done about two or three months of research and I was like (to his tour mates), 'Hey guys, don't worry about it...' They (the police) were like, 'Get out of here.' They weren't about to arrest me - that would have been a good story!"
