Ha - Jerry's Boys - thank you for the explanation. As you know, I'm TAR-challenged.

I love the thought bubbles. Do you think Jake got the info out of Mike? Jake did play a trained CIA analyst!

It's great to see these two together. Whether it's about a new part or just a chance to catch up. Fun pair. Fun post!

Great post FL, are these from yesterday?.

Forget that Stephanie has just posted them and others.

chica said...

I forgot that Bruckheimer produces Amazing Race, what a fun post! And as Bette pointed out in the previous post, I think White is the writer friend that Reese was talking about when ahe was on a talk last year.

Jake was sure busy yesterday based on the pictures!

agent_krycek said...

I have literally no idea who that bloke is, or indeed The Amazing Race.

In other breaking news, my glasses have just broken, and I'm sitting here looking like a prat with only one arm over one ear :(

Agent Krycek he wrote The Good Girl and played the security guard? in it as well.

This Italian site says that Reese was wearing an engagement ring in Rome.

EXCLUSIVE! The couple Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal finally is gone out to the uncovered one, from a week she puts on l' engagement ring regalatole from Jake. The Star of "Brokeback Mountain" continued Reese for all Europe.

I wonder if they thought the ring she always wears was an engagement ring. there is also a video of them in Rome.

bobbyanna said...

Fun post, FL. I really like the conversation bubbles...and I really like the way he wears those jeans in the other set of pictures.

I agree, a lot of people see those rings Reese always wears, and they think "engagement rings" but maybe these plain gold bands she always has on now for months are...something else? :)

office of nancy pelosi said...

The bubble are really funny, I've been following AR. I love the team of Mike and his dad!

Bruckheimer produces AR and about half of the shows on CBS.

Yeah Bobbyanna, I think that it must be the same gold rings, I can't imagine her taking and putting on the rings all the time, if she wanted to keep it quiet until after MVA promo for instance, then I would think that she wouldn't bother to put them on at all!

gabbana said...

I had no clue who M.White was until I saw a picture of him and his father....then I was thinking "Oh the ugly guy from The Good Girl"......(sorry Mike!)

Some news on Reese Brooks film at IMDB:
Brooks film

Paul Rudd and Bill Murray - sounds great!

more new pics of jake from yesterday up on ihj the hat is back

Jake is keeping himself busy while Reese does her PR stuff in New York. Bet he can't wait for her to get home. Wonder if Maggie and Peter and Ramona are still in LA or back in New York.

extra said...

The Amazing Race episode now airing was filmed back in November, it must be hard for White and others involved to keep their mouths shut on who won! Jerry's boys, LOL!! I see he is wearing my least favored look for him: The unabomber look and it looks likes his shoelaces are untied!!

The other pics on IHJ from yesterday he has the fedora back on, i prefer that look.


Here is the video of Reese on the Today show, I really didn't have a chance to watch the whole thing yet but she looks good:

UltraViolet said...

Guess Jake didn't get to go along for the annual March trip to NYC! Maybe he'll join her today.

You've probably seen this Gemma Arterton take on Jake, but this report had a little extra:

And she added she’s excited about her next project coming out too – her lead role in Prince of Persia opposite Hollywood hunk Jake Gyllenhaal. “Prince of Persia’s hopefully going to be huge,” she said. “And it was great working with Jake. He’s quite goofy actually and was always mucking about on set. I got to meet Reese Witherspoon briefly too one day and she seemed lovely.”

She also said Jake "is not bad to look at."

Anonymous said...

TMZ have a video of Jake from yesterday, they say such stupid things.

UltraViolet said...

I was just coming here to post that, anon! You get to see the fist bump/handshake in action.

X17 also has a very brief video from Paris. It says "Jake and Reese shopping at Fendi," but really, it's each of them leaving the store. Very unexciting.

sheba baby said...

When I first clicked on the post I said: Jerry's boys? What the hell, LOL!!!! Love the bubbles, and the post.

TMZ are a bunch of asswipes but I had to laugh at the unibomber comments, because that's what he looks like! Thanks for the links to the Gemma interview, so Jake isn't bad to look at, no kidding Gemma! Love what she had to say about Reese too.

UltraViolet said...

Agent K, I'm sorry about your glasses. Perhaps this will make you laugh. When I read this:

In other breaking news, my glasses have just broken, and I'm sitting here looking like a prat with only one arm over one ear :(

I thought, "Of course you look weird, AK. Why are you holding one arm over your ear?"

Then I realized you meant the arm of the glasses. Apparently, I'm spectacles-challenged, as well!

get real said...

Wow, tons of great pics!

I had to aww at Jake and Mike trying to fist-bump, lol. So cute they are.

I have not watched this seasons TAR but I do know of Mike and his dad Mel and I hope they continue to do well.

Ah, Jerry's boys! ;)

and the new pics are great too.

UltraViolet said...

FYI, I can't tell if they are just repeating the ring story everyone else has, but there's a brief video of Jake and Reese in Rome at that link. Thanks for posting it, anon.

Lemon said...

I love the awkward hand bumping thing. Jake is just ridiculously cute.

Cheers for Today Show link extra. I wonder how Reese kept such a straight face when asked about Joaquin Phoenix being a rapper.

By the way, my mind has just clicked on the ring story. In some parts of Europe, an engagement ring is worn on the right hand and the wedding ring is then worn on the left hand. I'm not sure if this has any effect on the story though, as Reese doesn't wear the rings on her ring finger.

josie said...

Love the hand bumping pictures!I didn't know Bruckheimer produced AR, you learn so much here on GB, LOL!

UV, that X17 link is actually a link to the TMZ video, he did a good job of ignoring the paps, funny video though!

Thanks for that link and the Rome video link and thanks extra for the today show video with Reese, I was wondering if anyone would ask her about Phoenix.

Great news about Reese's new movie with Rudd and Murray, thanks gabbana!


I love reading bits and pieces about Jake and Reese from other people,I think I actually like that even more than the pictures.

MvA currently 80% on rotten tomatoes. Good luck Reese!

UltraViolet said...

Looks like Jake and Reese are on the cover of Us again. I saw a flash of the magazine on Entertainment Tonight. It's a picture from the Lakers game, the one where Jake is gazing at Reese adoringly. The headline is "He's The One," and it said something like "Reese finally thinks seriously about marriage after two perfect years."

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the link check, Josie. The video is on page 2 of x17video.com,

From an article about Ashley Tisdale:

For those of you who may have blinked and missed it, Ashley Tisdale made a little appearance in the now cult classic "Donnie Darko" way back in the day. Don't remember her? Here's a little refresher: Tisdale played Kim, the dorky girl who tells a motivational speaker that she thinks her stepsister eats too much, before being told to shut up by the girl in question. The small role came up during a conversation about which actors Tisdale would most like to work with.

"I would love to work with Jake Gyllenhaal ... Johnny Depp. I love Kate Hudson. She's one of my favorites," Tisdale told MTV News before recalling her one amazing day of working with "Donnie Darko" star Gyllenhaal back in 2001.

"I was in one scene with him. I met him and he was the nicest guy in the entire world. At the premiere he even remembered who I was," she said. "I was there for a day. I had, like, two lines. But I'd like to actually do another scene with him, more."


Aww!

shondra said...

Ashley is such a sweetie, hope she gets her wish to work with Jake again. Jerry's boys, I didn't get it at first glance, Love the hand bump!

Thanks for the heads up on Us magazine UV. I haven't had time to check all the video links yet, but I will at lunch time.

MVA is now at 85% at rottentomatoes, they are prediction anywhere from 50 to 60 mil. OW!

Hope M/A does really well. They have a small window before Disney launches their big animated feature at the Cannes Film Festival. M/A has a pretty star-studded cast (expensive) so they have a higher break-even threshold.

Reese and Keifer are both out here working hard to promote it, but she seems to be in the lead.

Interesting. They used a lot of successful TV stars like Keifer and Hugh Laurie, added Seth Rogan, and Reese, both successful film stars, to draw in the audience.

They are going for the parents as much as for the kids. They're appealing to a fairly wide demographic. I think they will do well.

Some Nailed news.

Temperamental director David O. Russell’s latest is a political satire based on a novel by Al Gore’s daughter. The project has had its share of troubles ranging from several production shutdowns to cast drop-outs but is expected to finally wrap up and release late this year. Jessica Biel plays a woman with a nail in her head who goes to Washington DC to campaign for better health care and ends up falling for a Congressman played by Gyllenhaal, who seeks to exploit her for political gain. Despite his mercurial nature, Russell has a terrific track-record and this should be an interesting comedy.

Lets hope that is true.

Jake and Reese on the cover of Us, and they are using my favorite picture of them!:


http://coverawards.com/2009/03/25/news_reese_witherspoon_jake_gyllenhaal_us_magazine_38916/

I agree anon., I think the film will do well, the reviews are grea for the most part so far and MVA doesn't have any competition this weekend and you also have to factor in spring break.

It look like Reese is only doing 2 shows in NY this week: Today(yesterday) and Kelly and Regis today. Ellen which will air on Friday was taped last week and her appearence on Nickleodeon I assume was taped ahead of time as well. Wonder if she plans on taken some down time with Jake for the rest of the week.

extra said...

Thanks anon. for the Nailed news. Late this year? I wonder when that is, Fall/Winter?

bobbyanna said...

Squeee! I love the US Weekly cover and the story with it. (I love the picture they used, too!) Thanks so much for the link, extra!

There was a similar small article in one of the UK papers. (Google Alerts) A Monsters/Aliens piece when she was in London, I guess, and they also mention she is "considering" (cough!) marriage after "two perfect years."

I think they're going to marry soon. No fanfare, just something quiet. If they don't do it at the farm, they may do it in Tennessee. TMZ asked Jake if he and Reese would get married and he put his head down and just smiled.

I'm guessing, but I can't see them waiting for PoP publicity to be over before they do it. So I'm thinking probably this year.

They're very good at keeping personal separate from professional responsibilities and public stuff. OTOH, I'm hoping for the full out spread in Vogue! :)


OT: It's a cold, gloomy, rainy day here in the Midwest. Perfect day to plan a wedding!:)

chica said...

Even though we know that there is nothing new in the Us story and I avoid rags except when I'm on line at the supermarket, I may actually buy this one just becaue I love the cover!

lawgoddess said...

Jake and his friend were very cute together.

I did feel for him though, it must be awful to run the gauntlet every time you go out.

The TMZ guy had the nerve to ask him about jury duty!

get real said...

Thanks for videos and news,US Weekly cover, etc., everyone!

Love seeing Jake and Mike White. Although, ugh, TMZ is annoying, lol.

Saw Reese on Regis and Kelly this morning and she was great. Looked fantastic.

Glad to hear news on Nailed, I hope we finally get to see it.

Aww, Ashley Tisdale.

Overall, Jake and Reese are looking fantastic!

FluorescentLamp said...

A bit of Reese on Ellen (airing this Friday), using Madlibs to come up with her acceptance speech should she win at the Kids Choice Awards this weekend. Love how Ellen was able to work Jake into Reese's speech. Hee.

josie said...

Love that clip FL, thanks!!! Missed Reese on Kelly and Regis get real, hopefully it will show up on youtube.

Love the Us weekly cover!

get real said...

FL, that video of Reese on Ellen is awesome, lol!

Josie, hopefully it will be on Youtube or on the Regis and Kelly website. No mention of Jake during that interview.

FluorescentLamp said...

No mention of Jake during that interview.

No, but she did talk about her birthday party and that they had a bluegrass band there and a dance floor. :-)

agent_krycek said...

The Jake mention is hilarious with Reese cracking up =D

sag actor said...

Mike White has a very impressive resume, I hope that he and Jake were talking about an upcoming project, that would be great. I hope the news about Nailed posted menas that we will actually see it sometime this year.

Reese is adorable in that clip, MVA sounds like it's going to be HUGE!

UltraViolet said...

I love it! God bless Ellen. She really does think of the audience :) And Reese was really a good sport. She did well, though the Jake parts definitely cracked her up. Wonderful.

And thanks for the Nailed news, anon. Fingers crossed that we do see it sooner rather than later. Or never.

I did feel for him though, it must be awful to run the gauntlet every time you go out.

And he almost always handles it without incident. I'd love to hear Jake's real take on the jury duty "kicking" incident.

The paps are unbelievable. I did laugh when they were calling out Mike White's name - I wonder if he got a kick out of it.

chica said...

That clip of Reese on Ellen was seriously cute, I can't wait to see the whole show on Friday!

new pics of jake up at ihj leaving a medical center

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, anon - already updated the post with them :)

Also, Us us having one of those "Who wore it better?" contests between Jake and Brad Pitt. It's 50-50 right now.

They also have a fun look back at Reese's syle through the years.

bobbyanna said...

Awww! Reese is just so giggly and giddy about Jake. She even blushed. I love that about her! I'm looking forward to seeing Ellen, Friday.

Thanks for the new, extremely hot pictures.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Jake looks smoldering hot in he latest pics even though he isn't looking up, thanks for posting!

suvee said...

Love the Reese clip from Ellen...... thanks so much, FL! Her reaction when she thanked "the tantalizing Jake Gyllenhaal" was priceless...... and so cute. And you could tell that Ellen got a big kick out of that, too.

Hope the Nailed news is true. Dare we hope that we will be blessed with 2 (!) new Jake movies this autumn/winter? Be still my heart!

The LA Times had a 2010 Oscar Bait feature the other day..... I was thrilled to see Brothers made their list. But still no release date was noted. That's ok..... I'm just happy to see it getting some buzz.

shondra said...

Love the "tantalizing Jake Gyllenhaal" quote from Reese on the Ellen show! Looks like Ellen and Reese had a blast taping that, thanks for the link UV.

extra said...

Whoa, Jake is looking sexy in these pictures, what a way to start the day! Can't wait to see the whole Reese interview on ellen tommorrow.

Ryan has arrived in South Africa after a 23 hour flight, to shoot his movie, so I'd imagine Reese is home and has the kids.

Stephanie has just posted some pics of Jake with Maggie, Peter and Ramona from last month, cute.

And that pic of Reese are from Tuesday I think (it was posted on People yesterday).

paula said...

I have a lot to catch up on! Happy to see HJake having lunch with Mike White, he is really talented and I hope this leads to as new project. I had no idea he was on Amazing Race, I used to follow that show in the begginning. He looks really hot in the new pics posted and you are right anon, that pic of Reese is from Tuesday, she wore that outfit on the Today show.

LOL at her on Ellen, how cute! I will be watching the show on Friday for sure. Now I know why Reese only did those two shows in NY, Ryan had to fly off to S. Africa for his new film yesterday and the kids are still on spring break.

I went over to IHJ to check out the pics of Jake, Maggie,Peter and Ramona from last month, better late than never , the y pics are really cute.

Stephanie said that she just found them but I thought that she had decided not to post any pics of Maggie and Ramona anymore or am i mistaken? Anyway you can't see Ramona's face so I guess she thought it was OK.

For once i'm actually going to go out and buy Us magazine!

Thanks for all the links and updates!

ih said...

It could be that Stephanie needed the ok to publish the pics from Maggie and Peter and it was only ok's because you don't see Ramona's face, or they only ok'd the pics that didn't show her face which is fine with me , the pictures are still sweet.

Anonymous said...

Reese on Kelly and Regis, she is all in black, similar to the all grey outfit from the today show:

http://bventertainment.go.com/tv/buenavista/regisandkelly/index.html

Cute interview!

FluorescentLamp said...

I don't think those Maggie/Ramona/Jake pics are from last month at all. I think they're from when Maggie was just in LA last week. Last month she was doing 8 shows a week off-Broadway. Don't think she'd have time to nip off to LA for lunch with the fam.

FluorescentLamp said...

Sorry, I thought you all were referring to the most recent pics Stephanie posted.

chica said...

They are two sets of pics, one from last month and the other from yesterday, if you hear a squee it's from me, ha, ha!! Love the pics and I see that Maggie and Ramona are still in L.A. (with Peter I assume). Hope Maggie, Peter and Ramona enjoyed the birthday bash Jake threw for Reese on Saturday.

And it's the return of the fedora!!

UltraViolet said...

How adorable. Not one but two sets. And look at Ramona's cute painted fingernails in the swing pictures. These were a fun surprise.

office of nancy pelosi said...

Spring break varies but I think the kids break starts next week, just in time too sonce it looks like Reese is done with MVA promtion and Ryan is in South Africa to start his new movie.

So good to see Jake with Ramona, it's been awhile, what a cutie!

UltraViolet said...

Guys, please let's not get into a discussion of where Reese's children are or when or with whom. Thanks.

OMG, Jake and Ramona....SQUEEE!!!!
