Jake Gyllenhaal forgot Denis Quaid was His Father in “Day After Tomorrow”

Jake Gyllenhaal and Dennis Quaid play father and son in Disney’s new animated movie “Strange World,” but it’s not the first time the actors have played family members on screen. Gyllenhaal wouldn’t remember this, however. An recent “Strange World” Yahoo Entertainment junket interview went viral due to Gyllenhaal appearing to forget that Quaid once played the role of his father in “The Day After Tomorrow,” Roland Emmerich’s 2004 disaster movie.

“You and Jake obviously played father and son in ‘The Day After Tomorrow,’” Quaid was told by the Yahoo reporter that he participated in a joint “Strange World” Interview with Gyllenhaal

“We did?” Gyllenhaal cut in. “Oh…Oh, oh! Whoah! That’s the guy who played my dad.”

“It’s the first time we’ve been in the same room together,” Quaid said. “That’s me.”

Gyllenhaal added, “Wow that’s cool. You know we’ve been doing a lot of interviews and you just blew my mind.”

The two male actors were father and son. “The Day After Tomorrow,” The movie is largely shot in various places by their characters.
