Okay, we need a new post, and Jake isn't cooperating, keeping his croc-wearing, crutch-wielding Gyllenhaal self holed up in LA, Ojai or somewhere in between. (Simi Valley?) So let's do a little cover story. Here's this week's US:
Us has been all over the Jake/Reese story. From April 2007:
People also jumped on the bandwagon, but more discreetly:
Even the lesser tabs (is that redundant) got in on the act:
I don't think I'd ever want Jake and Reese to do one of those cheesy photo spreads/confessional interviews. But it would be cool to see a professional photo shoot. What magazine do you think could make it work? Vanity Fair?
Speaking of which... it's beyond time for Jake to be on a VF cover. You can't fault Italian Vanity Fair, though. They know a good thing when they see it:
Some other favorite Jake covers:
If discussion of the Us story and attendant theories flags :) feel free to chime in with suggestions for Welliwont's poll question: What movie would you like to see Jake remake, and what role do you want him to play?
I always thought it would be fun to see Jake and Heath in a remake of Midnight Run :(
I could see Jake in either part. But I don't know now who I'd like to see play opposite him.
A reminder that tonight's Late Night with Conan O'Brien is a repeat of Jake's appearance from October.
