Jake Gyllenhaal goes deeper, and darker, in his new movie; Song Exploder dissects Julia Holter's "Horns Surrounding Me; and actors between gigs scare up some cash by working in haunted houses.

In this edition of the Song Exploder podcast adapted for The Frame, Julia Holter joins Hrishikesh Hirway to dissect her song, "Horns Surrounding Me."
Haunted house attractions — from theme parks to the Queen Mary to theater stages — are a good source of seasonal income for actors.
The actor talks about why he's happier playing dark characters, why he loves "playing live" onstage, and how the coyote became his "Nightcrawler" character's spirit animal.
