Blame It on the man

Or blame it on MTV for misinformation. On iTunes for being slow. But the Jake Gyllenhaal, er I mean, Jamie Foxx video is finally here. Like most of Jake's recent screen efforts, there was a delay, but they did make it in time for Wednesday. You can view it on youtube or buy a very nice version on iTunes.

Some caps:

Never enough Jake, but he is looking fine.

(Screencaps by us :) Until Stephanie makes better ones.)

lol, I was just going to post a link to this video. You are on the job, lady! Jake is looking . . . a tad incongruous, but at least he's in good company!

UltraViolet said...

Hee. It was either this or work. You see which won out :)

It's all very incongruous, but worth it for that sexy look he flashes the blonde. He looks better than all the other ringers. Which probably goes without saying.

JoeAnn said...

I wanted to see him shakin' it, gettin' his groove on at least for a second. It's been a long time since Jarhead and the Santa Hat dance.

He definitely looked like a he had some interesting ideas floating around his head when he shot the blond that look. lol

UltraViolet said...

I know! I can't believe they didn't make the white guys dance, just for laughs! Maybe there's an outtakes reel!

I did notice on iTunes that there's a "Making of" for one of Jamie's other videos. Hope we get one for this, too.

The song isn't bad. I kept waiting for it to veer into date rape territory, but was hoping Jake wouldn't do a video for a song like that, lol.

Good morning, babblers!
Thank you thank you thank you
I like the clip.
The initial scene was perfect!:P
Jake is in good company!:)

I wanted to see him shakin' it, gettin' his groove on at least for a second. It's been a long time since Jarhead and the Santa Hat dance.
I agree. It would have been perfect.

jos said...

Jake dancing would have been fun! He is in good company, I love it!!

Thanks for posting!

josie said...

That was mee, too excited about the video! Love how he is checking out the blonde!

agent_krycek said...

There is a distinct lack of Jake, but he is looking fine.

Bobbyanna - thanks for the Star Jones explanation, the UK seems stuffed with that type of 'zeleb' at the moment, wish they'd all disappear into a very large hole

lawgoddess said...

Thank you, this was the first thing I looked for this morning.

The looks he gave the blonde in the 9th and 10th caps are to die for.

Nice to see Jae and Jamie doing a project together, they obviously enjoy each other. Fun stuff.

chica said...

What a fun video and I love the song! Just wish Jake was in it a bit more, but still I realy liked it.

paula said...

I'm sure there is a storyline to this video but I can't figure it out, LOL!!

Jake is looking good, wish it was more than the cameo though. They all look like they were having a blast, thanks for posting the video an the caps!

bobbyanna said...

Thanks for this! Finally. Music's not bad and I also just love those "looks!" :)
I've held, and I think many would agree, that there's a whole other side to Jake that most directors have yet to tap into.

Gavin Hood should have directed this!:):) I like smoldering sexy Jake. I'd like to see a couple hours of that...but not with Ron Howard...

Narcissa said...

I thought it was a lot of fun, and Jake is smokin'. As ever.

FluorescentLamp said...

Yay for the caps!

I know Jamie Foxx is a trained pianist, I wonder if that's him tinkling the ivories in the intro of the song. I really like the ominous sound of that.

Never enough Jake. Never enough.

shondra said...

Jake looks smoldering/sexy, love the video, song, and the caps!!

The panda thingy is weird, LOL!! Too bad that his appearence is just a cameo, and yes FL, never enough Jake!

This is totally off-topic and obviously old news but I found this on a Reese fan forum/old thread. The thread was posted on 4/2007. Jake, Natalie and Toby ended up doing the movie of course but I wonder who the they had in mind for the 3rd actor? Reese was tied up with 4C which was filming around the same time, interesting.

Icelander to produce Witherspoon/DiCaprio movie?

Icelandic movie producer Sigurjón Sighvatsson is to produce a movie by Irish director Jim Sheridan, possibly to star Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio.

The movie will be a remake of Brödre (Brothers) by Danish director Susanne Bier, released in 2004. David Benioff will write the script, who is one of the highest-earning screenplay writers in Hollywood, as stated in Fréttabladid.

Some of Hollywood’s most famous actors and actresses have declared their interest in participating in the project, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Reese Witherspoon, but the cast has not been decided on yet.

Sighvatsson explained to Fréttabladid that it can be difficult to get a high-profile cast together, “Many of the biggest stars are booked many months, even years, in advance.”

Narcissa said...

Thanks for digging that snippet up Anon. Small world.

Not to be frivolous or anything but... how the hell can a guy getting out of a car be so sexy? It's wrong I tell you! Wrong!

Bette said...

I love it!

UltraViolet said...

Getting out of the car and driving, Narcissa. As FL will tell you, I'm sort of obsessed with Jake driving. I love watching the way people drive.

Thanks for the old Brothers tidbit, anon. Hollywood is a very small world. I'm happy that Jake got it and not Leo. I wonder what it would have been like with Jake and Reese.

Speaking of Brothers, I wish someone had gotten a pic of Jake and Natalie Portman on Oscar night. I'd love to see an updated pic of them together,

Or one Jake and Jessica Biel, if you could see him beyond those hideous frocks she was wearing.

And I was also hoping Natalie might have given away a Brothers tidbit or release date in an interview. But I guess no one asked her about it.

UltraViolet said...

I don't know if everyone saw that Contact Music story someone linked yesterday, with Jake's Nailed costar talking about how he and Reese are ready to get married. That was odd - it seemed to come out of nowhere. I remember the same woman being quoted a few months back, as well. I'd never even heard of her before.

This is a cute Ojai sighting:

Bill Paxton who plays Bill on the show lives here in Ojai, but the big news is that Arnold Shwazanagergera or whatever the governor's last name is, is moving to Ojai. There might be more celebrities in this little town then any other town with less then 10,000 people. Reese Witherspoon just bought a house next to Channing's mom's and I saw her a few weeks back. Channing did say I could leave her for Reese as long as she could trade me for Jake Gyllenhaal. I was about to walk up to her and introduce myself as the most famous person in Ojai before she moved in, but right as I was about to tap her on the shoulder, Jake walked up and I made as smooth of a turn around as I could while Channing almost fell from laughter.

Warning that the rest of that paragraph is obnoxious.

Jake is looking mighty fine in this video and the song is catchy!

It must of been fun for Jake to reunite with Jamie to make this video.

bobbyanna said...

Eww. He IS obnoxious. Plus he is lying... Howard Hughes doesn't live in Ojai.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, I forgot to Amen Agent K's wish for Star Jones and her ilk to Just. Go. Away.

And Bobbyanna, I'm assuming he means HH used to live there? As FL knows, I often don't read the whole post from these sightings, so I apologize if the rest of it was even more obnoxious.

office of nancy pelosi said...

The guy is obnoxious. Apparently his GF had to inform him that Johnny Cash is dead (Like Hughes) and no longer live in Ojai:

"ps. Channing informed me that Johnny Cash is dead and no longer a resident. Really? jeez baby, I meant people who had lived or currently live in Ojai.

Loved the sighting though, thank UV!!

PS: I remember the sighting of them in Ojai you posted last week UV and they mentioned seeing the Terminator/Gov as well!

bobbyanna said... was my feeble attempt at humor.

bobbyanna said...

Didn't read the exchange with his GF about Johnny Cash. :) Johnny Depp spends so little time in the states, find it hard to believe he has a place in Ojai. (sigh) Soon Ojai won't be Ojai anymore!

UltraViolet said...

Man - sorry about that, Bobbyanna! Hee. It's been a long week so far :)

And yes, it seems like Ojai is going to have too many celebs per square mile. All the more reason for Jake to get that seaside getaway I'd rather see him in!

Pictures of Reese out with friends at X17. She is without make up and really looks as if she's been ill.
Very dark circles and she has lost weight. Maybe that's why she wasn't as put together Oscar night as she's been in the past. Messy hair, etc.

sass said...

Lordy have mercy babblers UV, and FL:)
This delicious man is just what the doctor ordered. Damn, I've been wondering if I were over our 'Jake the beautiful,' Thank goodness it's not true; I'm just being chemo-sass :lol:lol.
WOW! Jake looks so Good and so damned Smoldering and Sexy...whew!
hugs all and love forever,

chica said...

Hi Sass! I was wondering if you were ok. I hope all is going well with you.

Yes he is delish and I'm glad he is making you feel better.

UltraViolet said...

Sass! So good to see you. Glad Jake still has the power to make you feel good :)

UltraViolet said...

Also, anon at 3:03, Reese doesn't look that bad in those pictures. I expected to see her looking half dead! She just looks regular, and it's clear they chose the pics where she was making the oddest faces.

get real said...

Jake is looking smoldering, sexy and adorable at once in the video!

The tune is catchy.

However, we needed much more of Jake and much less of Panda guy!

Love seeing Jake with those guys.

Thanks for the sighting, UV. Although his other comments were obnoxious.

((Sass)), so good to see you!!

suvee said...

It occurs to me, after staring at pics #10 & 11...... if I were that blonde actress, I'd be driven to quite unprofessional behavior. I'm afraid Jake looking at me like that would make any decency and composure I had fly out the window. I'd be in his lap faster than the director could yell "Cut". :)

Would have liked to have seen more of him in this video, but thank God for screen caps, huh? Thanks, UV!

there's a whole other side to Jake that most directors have yet to tap into.

ITA bobbyanna. And I am more than ready to see that side showcased.

Hi to sass! You've been missed.

bobbbanna said...

Hey,Sass!!! Glad you popped in. I'm really sorry I missed you.
