Move over, Hugh Jackman!

Jake Gyllenhaal has just revealed that he'd love to take a shot at a Broadway musical.

The Southpaw actor wowed audiences earlier this summer when he co-starred in a three-show concert reading of Little Shop of Horrors, the 1982 Howard Ashman-Alan Menken musical about a man-eating plant.

"I don't know about that show in particular...but I definitely would love to be doing a musical on Broadway in the near future," Gyllenhaal told me tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival's opening night premiere of his upcoming drama-comedy Demolition.

"I would love that," he said. "It would be a huge honor. There are a lot of really good people who do it really well so you gotta know you can do it well if you're going to do it."

We have complete faith in you, Mr. Gyllenhaal.

The New York Times raved that his Little Shop performance confirmed that Gyllenhaal "is one of the few American movie stars who was also clearly meant to be a stage star."

The Hollywood Reporter review said that if Little Shop was a test to see if Gyllenhaal can handle a musical, "he passes with flying colors."

So come on, Broadway producers, find Jake a musical…now!

Gyllenhaal does show off some impressive dance moves in Demolition. How'd he do it? Tune into E! News tomorrow night at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to find out.
