Happy 50th to the Smurfs
Who knew the Smurfs have been around for so long? Or that anyone would really care? We can't let such a momentous occasion pass without our favorite bit of Smurf philosophy. From Donnie Darko:
Moonlight Mile is one of my favorite Jake films. I curse myself for not paying more attention at the time. Not only because they filmed outside of Boston and I missed the opportunity to see Jake up close and personal. (Felicia was even closer!)
I wish I'd been aware of the movie so I could have heard and read what Jake's costars had to say about him. We know from the commentary that Jake and Dustin got along famously. I found an old Charlie Rose show in which Susan talks a little about Jake. Well, gushes is more like it. It's just a few minutes, but she obviously thinks very highly of Jake Gyllenhaal!
(The Jake mention comes about halfway through, after she corrects Charlie on the pronunciation of Gyllenhaal!)
BTW, they have an extensive video backlog on the Charlie Rose site. So if you never saw Ang and Heath discussing BBM, you can watch it on the site. Oh how I wish Jake had been in on that interview.
IHJ put up some Moonlight Mile stills the other day, and that's what got me on the MM kick. Despite all the brown, Jake looks gorgeous.
Jake walking a route very familiar to one Fluorescent Lamp!
Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed Jake and Ellen Pompeo together.
IHJ posted some more pics of Jake from yesterday, basically the same but from a different angle. I like the composition of this one. Typical California: Gorgeous movie star, palm trees and paparazzi.
And in the reflection, the one pap looks like a monster or someone in a HazMat suit!
