Not much to report in the way of Timely, Topical and Totally Unverified Information on Jake, Reese, Brothers or Four Christmases filming, so today's entry is a little feature we're going to call: Coincidence...or Fate.
Shortly after Jake's Untitled Moon Project made news in Variety I became aware of one of Reese's earliest films and thought "What a coincidence! Or is it...fate?"
Oh sure, it's a stretch since we know Jake's movie won't hit theaters with that title. Though it would be funny if it did.
But no my friends, the coincidences don't stop there.
I mean, what are the odds?
Even more coincidental? A sampling of some of the many, and we're talking MANY, photo shoots they've done throughout their career.
Let's call this The Red Phase.
These have that At One With Nature feel.
How many actors do photo shoots with horses? Coincidence? Or. . . fate?
These come from that Vacant Look/Blue-Green Phase.
Do you think all photographers insist on photographing their subjects in that Lolita, or in Jake's case, Lolito, phase no matter what their age? Works for me.
It's uncanny! Reese was doing photo shoots for Jake's films long before he even appeared in them, right down to the denim shirts.
And learning to play the drums for her photo shoot for Jake's film Proof.
Of course no photos of Young Hollywood would be complete without a shot of the Hollywood sign in the background. Reese - check. Jake - check.
How's this for Coincidence. . . or Fate? Two movies that have become synonymous with Reese and Jake have each been adapted for the stage: Legally Blonde The Musical, now in its 10th month on Broadway. . .
. . .and Donnie Darko which ran at the A.R.T. in Cambridge, MA from October 27 - November 18, 2007.
