Since Jake Gyllenhaal has apparently gone into the Gray Hoodie Gyllenhair Protection Program, we're reaching back into the archives for some new old Jake Gyllenhaal news. I discovered this interview with Jake, from Brokeback Mountain promo time, circa end of summer, 2005. It's nice to see an extended interview.
The interviewer asks Jake about his time in London. He doesn't expound on it too much. But on his next promotional circuit, he'll have more material for that topic!
I particularly like the glimpse we get of final-touching Jake ;)
Two other very brief videos from the ITN vault. One is from the Oscar luncheon in 2006. Heady days.
The next is of Jake in Cannes - very quick but footage I hadn't seen before.
Jake was at Cannes for Zodiac. His pal Robert Downey, Jr., was not able to attend. But he and Jake did get together for the DVD commentary. Commentary that is really fun, except for the fact that they aren't given reign to do the whole movie. Instead the most pompous crime writer ever is joined by the Zodiac writer and producer for the Most Annoying Commentary Ever.
Okay, maybe it's not the most annoying, but when I listened, all I wanted was for them to shut up and let Jake and RDJ take the floor. Some kind soul has compiled the Jake and Robert segments, so you don't have to FF the other guys. It's only seven minutes, but it's a blast.
