Jake on video

Updated to include a few pictures of Jake from the Fincher tribute tonight.









No, not taken by a whiny pap but filmed by Hype Williams. Apparently, Jake Gyllenhaal was among the friends tapped by Jamie Foxx for his latest video, Blame It. The clip will premiere on February 9, but in the meantime, here are some stills:





Nice hat!




Speaking of videos - David Fincher got his start directing them. And tonight, Jake is scheduled to be at a tribute to David Fincher as part of thee
Santa Barbara Film Festival.

On Friday, January 30, SBIFF will present “A Celebration of David Fincher,” where he will be joined by Jake Gyllenhaal, Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson and a few special friends.







Let's hope the evening offers spectators some good give and take between Fincher and Gyllenhaal.



They fight, but we know they really like each other under it all.

And how cool would it be if RDJ showed up for some witty commentary?

I always wanted to know who those two women were with Jake on the Red carpet at SAGS in 06, loved the looks on their faces and their body language, giddy to meet Mr. Gyllenhaal, and I don't blame them!

What cool news about the video with Mr. Foxx, I've heard the song and Opie/Richie Cunningham is in it too! Love the hat, was hoping to see himwear it again.

Hope we get pics/reports from tonight!

One of the women is Taraji Hinson, sheba. She was nominated for Benjamin Button this year, and also worked with Terrance Howard in Hustle & Flow. I think the other woman is from Hustle & Flow, too. Taraji is scheduled to be at the Fincher event tonight, too.

This is SO cool that Jake is doing a music video!!! I like some hip hop, and listening to samples of Jamie's Intuition, it sounded good. Putting Opie in his video was genius!:) Go, Jamie!!!!

sheba baby said...

Thanks bobbyanna for identifying those very luck actresses, LOL!! I should have guessed that one was Taraji, I just didn't recognize her and it's so cool she will be there tonight with David and and Jake!

Whoa, this is a surprise! Reunited with his Jarhead co-star, love it! Can't wait to see the video, from the stills it looks like they had a blast!

Posted a couple of small pics from the Fincher tribute - waiting for untagged ones.

UltraViolet said...

Replaced with some JustJared pics. Look forward to more.

Thanks UV Jake looks good, like the hat but prefer it with the other outfit.

Getty has more images up but I think they are from Wireimage, if they are I dont think Steph can put them on IHJ.

chica said...

Wow, thanks for posting the pics UV!
Love the look, looks like he is chelling Humphrey Bogsrt!

bobbyanna said...

He seems to like having fun with that hat!:) Wonder if he is going for a smooth, urban, "Eliot Ness" Detective-ish look at this particular appearnce? ...:):)

I think the hat he wore in the Christmas pictures with Reese is different from the one in the video. The one he wore last night looks like a very expensive black dress hat. Maybe Jake has started a collection of hats.

FluorescentLamp said...

I don't think I'd be averse to a wee trim of the eyebrows. At this point they're overpowering his face. Which is not a good thing.

And how happy am I that more pics (read: BETTER) pics showed up after the initial few that made him look 78 years old. Yay smiley Jake!

Oh, I sure hope so . . . ;)

I think clean shaven, Jake looks very boyish. I'm amazed, actually, at how very young he looks.
These are lovely pictures in this thread. I especially like the pictures of Jake and David Fincher fussing over one another in the Cannes/Zodiac shots.

At first, I thought Jake was 'courting' David Fincher, but now I believe they are good friends who sometimes have creative differences, and the regard is mutual.

These pics are so awesome! Jake looks great and some pics show that better than others in the set. Thanks for finding the great ones and posting them here.

Love seeing Jake smiley, cool, wearing the hat, and interacting with the fans, having fun with Fincher and Taraji (who was great in BB) and how she was fangirling Jake at the '06 Oscars, lol.

Can't wait to see that video. The pics are so fun.

get real said...

I should say it was the '06 SAG awards, not the Oscars with Jake and Taraji.

UltraViolet said...

All the Fincher love inspired me to be spontaneous and go off to see Benjamin Button. Hope there are some reports from the event by the time I emerge from the movie!

And FL, as you know I was also thrilled to see some snaps where Jake did not look like Benjamin Button himself :)

Barbara said...

This was a fun post. I love to see Jake clean-shaven and smiling and looking like he's enjoying the crowd.

After a long drought, it is so great to have new Jake sightings all the time.

I've never heard any of Jamie Foxx's recordings, but I saw him sing on Oprah once and I thought he had a great voice.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Hmmm, the hat has an Elliot Ness feel to it,Torso?? I agree FL that the eyebrows are a bit overwhelming, but he looks great!

extra said...

I really like that look on him and It think he is having fun with the hats too!

I hope we get a report from the event soon.

I was relieved to hear someone else say this.... I have worried that the Jake/Fincher relationship might be a little one sided, but I agree, sallykirkland. There appears to be a mutual respect and friendship at work here.

Off to see Milk..... the next movie on my Oscar list.

Thanks, Sag Actor. One thing I notice about Jake. Almost all the time, when ever he appears some where, even if it is for an interview about his own movie, or on a red carpet at a premiere, or at some event like this, people seem to get so excited that Jake was there. Like it's a major event. He really must be something special in person to create such excitement. It is kind of like George Clooney used to do.

shondra said...

I thought of Eliot Ness too when I saw Jake but i think I read somewhere that the rights to Torso had lapsed and it was shelved.

I really like the look, great to see him with the fans and Fincher and Taraji!

New pics from the other night and another night :) So new post.
