30 days

Can any of our quick-witted users tell us what haven't we seen in the past month? While you ponder, some sage but troubling information about droughts:

Although droughts can persist for several years (!), even a short, intense drought can cause significant damage.

Drought is not a purely physical phenomenon, but instead is an interplay between natural availability and human demands for supply.

If you're experiencing any kind of extreme reaction - sweating, nausea, vomiting - simply

[insert Jake picture here]

There is SOME new Jake news. Okay, it's not news. And it's not Jake. But some new photos of the PoP set have emerged on flickr:

This is kind of funny, from Defamer, which is hit or miss these days. Under one of the new pics of Atticus and Reese:

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Dog: Hey Reese, do you know when Jake is getting back?

Reese Witherspoon: Uh….What?

J.G.D.: My dad, Jake. Do you know when he’s coming home?

(Witherspoon removes one of her ear buds)

R.W.: Sorry. I couldn’t hear you there. Listening to Bob Seger.

(Jake Gyllenhaal’s Dog nods his head.)

J.G.D: Gotta love the Seger. I’m more of a Springstein (sic!) fan. Anyways, I asked if you knew when my dad was getting back? I kind of miss him. A lot.

R.W.: Well, mommy misses him too.

J.G.D.: Wait…whoa..wait. You’re my mom?

R.W.: Well, I’m working on it. I don’t want to jinx myself though.

J.G.D.: So, no idea as to when he’s coming back home? Can he get e-mail out wherever he is.

R.W: Oh yeah. We do that iChat thing with the cameras all the time. He looks great. Tan and all buff. You’d be impressed.

J.G.D: So, you’ve been talking to my dad all this time? Not fair. Not fair at all.

R.W.: I didn’t know you were so concerned. You’re just usually licking yourself or sleeping, so I wasn’t sure. I will let you talk to him the next time we talk, okay?

Can I just teehee to myself over suing "sic" in a post where a dog is talking? < /geekdom >

Bette said...

It's been 30 days? Dear God. WE NEED PICS! I hope in the next week we get some.

UltraViolet said...

This is interesting. A list lof upcoming movies, showing a Christmas release for Brothers. No idea where they got this info.

But looking at the calendar, I note that 12/4 is a Thursday, so that will no doubt not be the release date.

Monica said...

UV, thank you!
December 25? Also that year will be!

The Top 10 Young Actors with the Most Anticipated Roles

Anonymous said...

Cool pictures UV!

gabbana said...

Thanks UV - but have you seen - they did not even get the characters right...

25th of December would be the last date if they are going for Oscar consideration.....

Monica, it is really great to see Jake getting some attention - there are some fine actors on that list.

josie said...

More pics from the set, what a great find, thanks!

So we have a new release date for Brothers, hopefully we will get a trailer soon. This is the second time that i noticed that they got Tobey's and Jake's roles mixed up.

That Defamer bit was too cute!

sheba baby said...

LOL at the Defamer bit! I love the look of the sets so far from the set of Pop, I can't wait.

Happy to see Jake # 1 on that list and I love Joseph Gordon Levitt as well.

Dec. 25th for Brothers, I hope this is a frim release date.

bobbyanna said...

I've been suffering from "hallucinations" ever since I saw shirtless Jake on the set in Morocco as the actual PoP!! I'm getting philosophical, tho. Maybe after Jake flashed that gorgeous, shirtless PoP body, he figured we needed a time out.;)

Cute post, UV. Loved the Defamer conversation with Reese and Atticus. Especially the "Mommy misses hm too" bit.

I missed seeing Emil Hirsch on that list of young actors. Glad Brothers finally made it onto a list!!!

suvee said...

Always love seeing Atticus..... he just seems like such a cool guy! I had a wonderful German Shepherd rescue myself..... she passed away last year at the great old age of 14 1/2. So, I love the fact that Jake (and Kirsten) saved a beautiful dog that some breeder most likely "dumped" because of a floppy ear.

The Defamer bit was a hoot (the "sic" was truly inspired IMO). Thanks, UV!

Maybe we should have started a "When Will Jake Surface Again?" pool. You know, pick the date and location of his first post Morocco appearance. :)

UltraViolet said...

Added another PoP pic to the post - glad people like them. And you should check out the flickr photos taken by the third photographer, especially, dmoreira. Some amazing, beautiful desert shots.

Bobbyanna, hallucinations is a definite symptom. I should have included that.

And suvee, thank you for indulging/appreciating my "sicness." Okay, I'll stop now!

shondra said...

Has it really been 30 days??? Sigh.

I love the new pictures from the set, it looks amazing.

That Defamer blurb is too funny!

agent_krycek said...

30 days...I swear I've developed a twitch at the lack of Jake :(

Bette said...

Well I vote either the 14 or 15th. Those are my claims for when Jake will show up post PoP. Maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part.

I really do love the set pics, they are beautiful.

Too bad Jake is alone over there :(

Love all the new set pictures from Pop, they should be wrapping up this weekend if everything went well in Morocco.

paula said...

Love the set pictures!!!

I hope he is done filming Pop soon, i'm dying here, LOL!!!

Cute blurb on Defamer about Reese and Atticus and thanks for the link to the Reese story on Cnn, isn't she supposed to do a walk next week in L.A.

UltraViolet said...

We found some more PoP photos, guys - check out the post again.

Still no Jake...

bobbyanna said...

I know I said this earlier, but I just have a feeling he's home and/or he and Reese are together.
I think that's why she was grinning and looking so happy the other day.
Thanks for the pics, UV!

chica said...

Wow, the pictures are great, thanks UV!!

I agree with you bobbyanna, i think he may be back home, someone needs to take a closer look at that bracelet she was wearing the other day. If it was a cartier and a love bracelet, it was a bit too fancy to be wearing jogging and walking Atticus around Brentwood!

lawgoddess said...

Isn't the Love bracelet the one you put on with a special screwdriver? I think it's meant to be worn all the time.

I once went to a Cartier store with a girlfriend and they tried to convince us to try one on. With that price tag, I didn't want to know how it looked. :)

Reese might be in New York for the Avon walk next month

extra said...

What a beautiful set, Pop is going to be amazing, thanks for finding and posting the pictures.

First Brothers i set to come out on 12/4, then 12/25 now according to the link monica posted, no date.

Let's just assume that it'as coming out in December, hopefully!

I have a feeling Jake will be resurfacing sometime next week ,just a feeling.

I read that Reese will be participating in the L.A. Avon walk next week as well, she may do both.

think Jake will be home this weekend?

Gemma Arterton Talks Bond And Persia

Gemma POP

‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’ I’m the only girl in the whole film. It’s a boy’s world, but I’m quite cool with that.”

I hope she has a good chemistry with Jake!

bobbyanna said...

OT: As I wander the internet searching for even a morsel about Jake, I happened to run into Ben Affleck...with shoulder length curly hair and a your heart out, Ben! ;) ;)

Afternoon babblers,
I'm having lots of fun here today. Jake and Reese's Napa Hideaway--I'm not sure if I have the location right--from last October was profiled today and tomorrow at 4:00PM EST on VH1's Fabulous Life of Hollywood's Hottest Couples. I doubt Jake and Reese will ever visit there again.
VH1 and the hotel person on camera showed both their villa and the bedroom they shared. YIKES!:) The show ends by telling us to look on for more on the life of Jake/Reese and other Fabulous Hollywood couples:)

Anonymous said...

You can go online and see the Napa room, that was splashed all over last year.
You can go to the site and see the rooms at the inn

While at the Carneros, Reese & Jake rented one of the resort’s private “homes,” which feature multiple bedrooms and over 1,000 square-feet of personal outdoor space. These homes can rent for anywhere from $1,600 to $2,400 per night.

Pictures of the rooms are on the net

gabbana said...

Has everybody seen this:

US Weekly

"Jake Gyllenhaal hasn't just bulked up for his new fantasy film Prince of -Persia - he's using an accent, too! "Jake talks in a British accent even off camera," a source tells Hot Stuff. "He stays in character in his downtime. He takes it all very seriously!"

A "source"? Sounds like our own Brothers Spy...

I like those pictures from the set - looking great. But IMO Disney will make sure that we will only get pictures from the cast if they want us see them....

From what I remember Reese was critizised for not really participating at the Avon walk last time and she got some very harsh comments - lets hope this time everything will be fine.

Bette said...

Wasn't Reese supposed to be at the LA walk? What happened there?

Anonymous said...

I found this
I wonder how many of the walks she will be at

chica said...

The L.A. walk is today and tomorrow, and the NY walk is Oct. 4-5.

I'm not sure if she will be participating in The L.A. walk or the NY walk or both.

Thanks for the heads up on the VH1 show tomorrow sass!

bobbyanna said...

That sounds like total nonsense. I can't imagine who criticized Reese or why they would. The fact she dedicated her time to draw attention to the cause, and that she attend the march,stay and encourage those who are walking, etc. is a very good thing. The feedback I read indicated she was very cooperative and very generous.
A lot of people less famous and less busy are barely able to take time to write a check.

Bette said...

I heard the 12th, that she was opening the walk which runs through the weekend, but I bet she closes the walk instead. We'll see pics tomorrow I'm sure.

I'm more interested in pics of Jake though!

Monica said...

Good morning, Babblers!
I am happy to see that Reese is participating in the fight against breast cancer.
I know how painful it is see someone with cancer, because my mother went through this twice.

Aren't Peter and Maggie in London for Peter to do a play? I also read that Ryan Phillippe is in London working on a movie, but that might be old news. Just wondering if Reese, Ava and Deacon will be coming back to London with Jake? OTOH, if Jake is only going to be there for two or three weeks, at least he will be able to spend time with Ramona. I agree Jake is probably home already and just lying low for a few days. I'm confident we will see him this week.

No, anon, wrong Great White Way. Previews for The Seagull begin Tuesday, 16 September at the Walter Kerr Theatre, NYC, NY.

Brothers imdb page updated

I think this is recent. The main characters are now named, anyway.

extra said...

OT:Author David Foster Wallace was found dead in his home over the weekend. It was a suicide. What a loss, he was such a gifted writer.

A remember a few years ago Jake was spotted carrying Infinate Jest by Wallace.

I thought it was part of her 30 million Avon contract.

Narcissa, the names were announced in August.
IMDBadded the date of debut in two more countries: Netherlands (February 5) and France (March 4). This is a good sign.

It announced a new date for the site of Natalie Portman:

It would seem Jim Sheridan's upcoming film drama Brothers, in which stars Natalie opposite Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal, will be released in the United States on December 8 2008, according to According to the film's IMDb page, Natalie's character now also has a name - Grace Cahill. Hopefully some promotional footage and a trailer will surface online soon!

In imdb continues to date on December 4!

december 8 is a monday and films arent released on a monday that im aware of

sag actor said...

The entry on that Portman site was an error. I thought that the new release date was 12/25?

gabbana said...

None of the reliable movie film sides like Coming Soon, Rotten Tomatoes or Dark Horizon and also none of the film release date sides like Film have a release date for "Brothers".

To me those are the trustworthy sources - I don´t think there is an official release date yet.

Some sides like Variety are going with December but also no specific date.

Have a look here:
Hollywoods Leading men

"Jake Gyllenhaal (28): just like Gosling, he’s already been nominated for the Oscars. The public loves him and fans are clamoring for more of Jake. He got four new exciting roles to come, among them a great acting piece with Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman called Brothers. Among the four, he’s the one who got that leading man material (following the old Hollywood formula of course!). Best roles to date: Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko and Jarhead"

bobbyanna said...

Anon 2:11, as I understand it, Reese does not get paid to promote Breast Cancer Awareness for the Avon Foundation or to promote the Avon Foundation in general. She accepted the honorific as honorary chair to raise awareness about issues of specific concern to women's mental and physical health.

She does get paid to do commercials for Avon products, like a lot of film stars who get endorsement contracts for Chanel, Lancome, St. John's, Revlon, Hanes,etc.

bobbyanna said...

(cracks door open, peeks in) Wow...sure is quiet in here. I was just roaming around the internet, no news...but I did read on justjared about JLo of all people!

She's a triathelete! Who knew! Apparently she's been training. and she competed in California over the weekend. 1/2 mile ocean swim, 18 miles round trip on a bike, and 4 mile roundtrip run, in 2 hours and 23 minutes. Now that is something Jake could definitely do. Don't know if Reese is up to it right now, but I'd bet she could be. I can't swim, and I don't run, but I could definitely do 18 miles on a bike...especially if they give me three or four days ...;)
