How Jake Gyllenhaal Hurt Arturo Castro's Ego in 'Road House' Movie

Arturo Castro Jake Gyllenhaal interview Road House

Arturo Castro (Broad Street, THE MENU) stars as the villain's henchman in ROAD HOUSE, but he's not your typical tough guy. The actor reveals he beefed up for the role but when Jake Gyllenhaal showed up to set, his ego went bust. 

 ROAD HOUSE is now streaming on Prime Video. Castro stars alongside JD Pardo, Billy Magnussen, Daniela Melchior and Conor McGregor in his feature film debut. 


ROAD HOUSE is a remake of the 1989 action movie starring Patrick Swayze. The setting and characters are new except for the Dalton character name, played here by Jake Gyllenhaal. The 2024 Dalton is a former UFC fighter living as a nomad until he's offered a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse. The rest of the story beats are similar to the original. A businessman (Magnussen) resorts to violence to destroy a joint called the Road House to make way for a resort development. 

ROAD HOUSE stars Gyllenhaal, Daniela Melchior (THE SUICIDE SQUAD), Billy Magnussen (NO TIME TO DIE), Lukas Gage (The White Lotus, Euphoria), Arturo Castro, JD Pardo (Mayans M.C.) and in his feature film debut, Conor McGregor.
