Story: A man seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie.

Synopsis

Synopsis: We hear in voice-over the main character’s mother leaving a voice-mail message. It says that she does not like the apartment he has selected.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s character (we don’t know which one, but find out later it is likely the actor), opens a small package, and removes a key. He opens a locked door and escorts some other gentlemen inside.

The room is filled with men watching a girl on a stage, masterbating. The men are transfixed. Soon two women come on stage wearing nothing but high-heeled shoes. One sets down a covered silver tray. The lid is lifted to reveal a tarantula. One of the women raises her foot over the creature, as if to step on it.

Jake Gyllenhaal is teaching a history class, and afterwards, a colleague suggests that he watch a light movie. Jake rents the movie on the way home. He goes home to his wife, who is tired and goes to bed.

Jake watches the movie. In it, he notices a minor character that looks a lot like him. Teacher Jake goes to bed, and tries to make love to his wife. She gets mad, and storms out of the apartment.

After searching on-line, Jake finds that the actor works through an agency downtown. When he goes to the agency, the security guard greets him as the actor, and gives him an envelope addressed to the actor’s home.

Teacher Jake didn’t wear a wedding ring. She realizes that she is doing it with Actor Jake, and gets upset.

Actor Jake gets her into Teacher Jake’s car, and they go tearing off.

Actor Jake’s wife seduces Teacher Jake, and they make love.

Actor Jake loses control of the car, hits a concrete pylon, and rolls the car. It appears both are dead.
