NEW YORK (AP) — Jake Gyllenhaal will make his Broadway debut later this year with a work by a playwright he's come to admire.

The Manhattan Theatre Club said Thursday the "Brokeback Mountain" star will appear in Nick Payne's "Constellations," which has been a hit in London. Previews begin Dec. 16 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre and will be directed by Michael Longhurst.

Gyllenhaal, who appeared in a revival of Kenneth Lonergan's "This Is Our Youth" in London in 2002, made his New York stage appearance in 2012 in Payne's "If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet," which also was directed by Longhurst.

"Constellations" presents several permutations of a single relationship. In some scenarios, the couple lives happily together; in others, they don't even make it to a first kiss.
