"Or perhaps Glenn Close and Jake Gyllenhaal can team up. They’re giving brilliant performances in 'Sunset Boulevard' and 'Sunday in the Park With George,' respectively, although neither is this year eligible for a Tony. They’d certainly be classy hosts, but I’m not sure how they’d do in the Sparkling Sense of Humor Department. 'I think the proceedings might be a little morose,' a producer says."
I don't get this weird comment. I have seen both Close and Gyllenhaal be very funny and charming when that is what's called for.
