Sporting a bald head and a police uniform, Jake Gyllenhaal was spotted in South Central Los Angeles shooting his new film, End of Watch. The filming took place in the famously rough part of the city next to a burned out van.

In addition to shooting in a gritty location, Gyllenhaal, 30, and co-star Michael Pena have been doing some ballsy research for their roles. Last month they went for ride-along with the LAPD after a gang shooting. End of Watch also co-stars former Ugly Betty actress America Ferrera.

Gyllenhaal was last seen shirtless on the shores of Hawaii while vacationing with his sister, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. The Gyllenhaals were in Oahu for a family affair celebrating their father's remarriage.
