Eric Garcetti & Jake Gyllenhaal Host Screening

Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti has a cameo in the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal pic “End of Watch” playing the mayor of Los Angeles. That just happens to be the office the Garcetti is seeking, with a heavy amount of support coming from Hollywood.

So taking a cue from the Obama campaign, which has featured celebrities fronting contests in which donors can win tickets to star-filled fundraisers, the Garcetti campaign held a drawing where the winner could attend a special screening of “End of Watch” with Garcetti, Gyllenhaal and other supporters today. The suggested contribution was $50.

This isn’t the first time that Garcetti has portrayed the mayor of L.A. He appeared on an episode of “the Closer” last year. His father, former District Attorney Gil Garcetti, is consulting producer for the show.
