"Did you see that?"

Update: Jake at the Lakers/Spurs game on Monday night:

Last photo tweeted by Jeanie Buss, Lakers Executive Vice President:

Jake Gyllenhaal courtside. His new film looks good - Prince of Persia with the long locks.

Looks like someone bought himself a new hat over the weekend :)

After a totally unexpected on-side kick led to a touchdown and turned the Super Bowl around for the New Orleans Saints, the real excitement happened: Disney aired a 30-second spot for Prince of Persia, starring Jake Gyllenhaal:

The ad opened with a beautiful shots of Gemma and then ran through some familiar scenes:

Best part of the ad? "GIVE ME THE DAGGER!"

Some reviews are in. Television Without Pity gives the ad a thumbs-up:

With this video-game movie, simple seems the best way to go, since its longer trailers have only made this look like a convoluted mess. In only 30 seconds, this trailer got across the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal is in it, he has a knife that turns back time, and the special effects are jaw-dropping. We're in.

The USA Today AdMeter currently ranks the PoP ad 44th (Alice in Wonderland is 31; Shutter Island 37; Robin Hood 39; Wolfman.)

You can vote in a poll on the movie ads at the Star Ledger.

The cover art for Brothers can be seen on Amazon - and you can pre-order, too! It's odd that they have the date listed as 2008. Yes, that's when we wanted to see it, but we didn't get to!

Just a little late, but... congratulations to the Saints!

mary said...

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the heads-up, Mary. Nice shot of Jake - I'll add it to the post :)

bobbyanna said...

Thanks, mary & UV.

Very nice looking DVD cover...How nice that Lionsgate decided to use the blurb about it being "Oscar-worthy..." Too bad they didn't think of that six months ago.

It's a brilliant sunny day! I hate contractors, but I'm still going to be happy. Just for spite.

Chica said...

My office is moving to a cheaper space and it's chaos here today!

I like the DVD cover for Brothers. Jake's performance was certainly Oscar worthy, Lionsgate really dropped the ball with the film.

Love all the stills from the trailer, thanks!

UltraViolet said...

Ugh - good luck with the move, chica. Always fun. And to you, too, with the contractors, bobbyanna!

Two of the tweeters who saw Jake over the weekend apparently work for an Austin radio station. They saw Jake but didn't get a picture:

Jake Gyllenhaal was hanging out in Austin this weekend, and Sara and Cassiday saw him on South Congress Saturday. They acted like total stalkers about it, and Cassiday even asked him for a photo, but he turned her down.

Would have been fun to hear them talk about it on the radio.

Also, apparently Jake had coffee at Juan Pelota Cafe this morning. It is attached to this bike shop, which seems connected to Lance Armstrong.

Tweety said...

Agree with TV without pity said about the Pop trailer, but not whit Shutter Island, I liked that trailer.

Very nice cover work on the Brothers DVD. I hope it finds a wider audience when it is released.

Coffee at Juan Pelota and lunch at Enoteca! And yes he is a handsome man, not boy!:

photosmashing: Jake Gyllenhaal is at Enoteca right now. He's a handsome boy afterall.

Yay for the Saints. First time watching the superbowl it was fabulous towards the middle and end.

Probably the PoP trailer gave them the 'courage' to go the extra yards to win. The fact that I've discovered its a rebirth of a team and a city is too good for words.

Love the DVD cover and look forward to lots of eggs and extras.

Austin who? said...

Yes, ladies and gents, that was Jake Gyllenhaal at Home Slice and Enoteca. He's in town David Modigliani's 30th birthday.

Anonymous said...

Where are all the pictures of Jake with David? No pictures, didn't happen.

Anonymous said...

That Brothers pic of Jake is gorgeous and thanks for the PoP stills UV.

Anonymous said...

There are no pics of Jake from this weekend period, except for the twicpic taken of him with friends at that restauraunt.

UltraViolet said...

Mystery solved. From all of these tweets and posts, it sounds like there's a big group celebrating. Hope they're all having fun.

UltraViolet said...

Forgot to say you're welcome for the pics, anon. I'm happy Jake is so prominent on the cover though I do feel a liittle bad for Natalie. Let's hope Jake figures as prominently in the bonus features.

UltraViolet said...

Spamming but I thought this was cute. From one of the tweeters who saw Jake at Enoteca:

oh_steph @onelegatatime TRUTH. All the waitresses were starstruck.

Tweety said...

Yes mystery solved, I hope they all had a good time.
Looks like he is headed out of TX:

steffieflies: Holy shit! Jake Gyllenhaal is at the airport! I want a pic with him! :(

Shondra said...

I saw it and so did most of America! The Superbowl was the highest rated show in history, beating out the last episode of M.A.S.H

Watched the video of the trailer posted, I'll never get tired of it, four more months!

Looks like Jake is headed home after celebrating over the weekend with his friend. I remember the talk about David's documentary Crawford a few years ago. I never got to see it.

bobbyanna said...

Shondra, if you go to, they are still running "Crawford."

You can see it there for free.

Glad Jake had a fun weekend with friends,fellow filmmakers, and foodies!:)

Shondra said...

Thanks for the info on Bobbyanna!

UltraViolet said...

Added a few photos of Jake at the Lakers/Spurs game, including one of him and an old friend :)

Carla said...

So great to see Jake with Chris having fun- I have missed those pictures.

The ad was fine but too short - I don´t care about the nay-sayers anymore - the "not persian" argument is absurd - this is not a documentation, it is a video game and Jake does exactly look like the prince.

No sign for a release date for "Brothers" over here - I have given up hope and will have to wait for the DVD.

Josie said...

The trailer was quick, but the fsct such a large audience saw it is awesome!

I agree Carla, the non-Persian complaint is getting old, he isn't playing a historical figure.

Look, it's Chris! Good to see them hanging out.

I realy liked Brothers and loved Jake's 's performance. I hope more people get to see it when it's realeased.

suvee said...

Nice to see you, Chris!

Looks like the 3 amigos really were together in Austin..... the MV amigos, that is. :)
Bet it was fun weekend for them.

UltraViolet said...

Updated to include new photos. Looks like they had fun!

And yes, it's very cool that the Super Bowl audience was so huge.

bobbyanna said...

Love these game pics! Always great to see Chris.

I've discovered that Rendition is finding an audience since it's been on HBO, etc. and out on DVD, and I know that Brothers will do well, too.

You're right. It's great that the huge SB audience got to see the PoP trailer.

Today is Eldest Daughter's birthday! I tell people she is my sister...:) We were chatting while she walked to the subway. I She's usually at work by 7 A.M., but she has a new man, so she is less of a work-aholic:)

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Chris!!!!! I have a bit of a crush on that man, it's good to see him again.

The audience for the Superbowl was huge, I can't believe the numbers!

That is such a great shot of Jake on the cover of the Brothers DVD, so much better than my least favorite cover of a Jake movie: Zodiac.

The three amigos from MV, that's too funny Suvee, hope they had fun!

mary said...

thanks uv glad to see jake out with chris also glad to see jake clean shave again at least for a little while

Monica said...

I love the look of the DVD of Brothers!

Yay, Chris!

I have a bit of a crush on that man
Me too!!

Monica said...

Today is Eldest Daughter's birthday!

Happy Birthday, Eldest!

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

How is yor Mom doing Suvee??

Birthday wishes to your eldest Bobbyanna!!

Monica said...

Sorry Bobbyanna, I'm very busy and I read fast!

Happy birthday to your daughter!

suvee said...

How is yor Mom doing Suvee??

She's making progress with her PT..... slow progress, but progress nevertheless. I think my early estimate that she would be home after a few weeks was overly optimistic. But she is off all pain meds, so that's a good sign. And today is her 86th birthday!!

oonp, thanks for asking. :)

suvee said...

Happy Birthday to your eldest, bobbyanna. February 9 is a big day for me, too!

UltraViolet said...

David Belle, parkour founder, on working with Jake:

CinemaSpy: You have now worked on three English-language Hollywood films as the stunt or parkour coordinator, and appeared in two, Babylon A.D. and Femme Fatale. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is one of the most anticipated films of this year. Did you work closely with Jake Gyllenhaal? What are the important things to be aware of when you are working with actors that have little knowledge of stunts or parkour? How do you train them?

David Belle: The idea is you move around with the actor to see where his limits are. How much can he do? I can do this. It is up to you as the coordinator to determine where those limits are and whether he needs to be substituted with a stuntman, whether it is a risk that he can handle or not. Unless he is really comfortable with it, it is probably better for him to be substituted with a stunt guy. Now, in the case of Prince of Persia, Jake prepared himself well physically and he was able to do a lot of stuff himself. ...

CinemaSpy: With the success of parkour on the big screen, you then also began taking acting lessons. You have worked with and been on sets with actors like Jean Reno, Antonio Banderas, Charlotte Rampling and Michelle Yeoh. Are there any actors that you particularly admire?

David Belle: First of all, I would like to just say that I have enjoyed working with everybody that I have worked with, and I would love to have a repeat experience with any of them. As far as actors I would like to work with in the future, Hugh Jackman, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt—who doesn’t like Brad Pitt? With any of them, I would like to have the impression of evolving, of moving forward, and then I could learn something from them. They are all pretty good in action but I would want to feel that I am growing. That would be magnificent.

get real said...

t is great to see Jake and Chris hanging out! Love seeing the two of them. :)

Jake is looking great in all these fantastic pics. :D

Thanks for all the details of his trip, UV. Sounds like he was busy. :p

Also, thanks for the Brothers DVD pics! Glad to see Jake gets in the front.

The PoP commercial is great. Thanks for the parkour info. Seems Jake was well prepared and that is impressive coming from the founder.

Bobbyanna, happy birthday to your daughter! Suvee, glad your mom is doing better and happy birthday to her!

UltraViolet said...

Hi get real :) It has been a fun few days - for us and Jake!

Aww, happy birthday to suvee's mom and bobbyanna's daughter! It's also Carmen Miranda's birthday :)

A whole slew of Jake photos from last night. Some of them are priceless. If I have time later, I might have to do a captions post!

Some other tidbits from Jake's weekend, from Facebook:

1. He rented a Prius and was deemed "a very nice dude."

2. He was spotted on the Zilker Trail.

3. He and David apparently enjoyed the pecan pie at Enoteca.

4. He "was very nice and tipped over 20%"

5. He played basketball at a local gym "with a big crew and said they were just playing among themselves. but i watched him play for a while. he's a shooter, not a driver, pretty good at boxing out and he really does have this boyish demeanor about him."

(Note: I deleted my earlier post because I found a better link for those pictures.)

bobbyanna said...

Awww! I will extend your good wishes to me!

Happy Birthday to Suvee's mom!!!!
Glad your mom's making progress. Stay optimistic. ((((suvee.)))

I LOVE Carmen Miranda!!! When I was very little my aunt would pretend to be her and dance for us with bananas on her head!

(Yesterday was Lana Turner's birthday. I'd recently watched Madam X. Such crying!)

"Chris!!!!! I have a bit of a crush on that man,..."

OOMP, monica, suvee, etc. etc. anyone else who has a crush, you have EXCELLENT taste! I saw him in person in Toronto when I went there for Rendition, and Chris is gorgeous! Put another way, if Jake asked him to look after me, I wouldn't mind a bit.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Happy birthday to your Mom Suvee! I'm glad to hear that she is on the mend.

You are so lucky you got to see that fine man Chris up close Bobbyanna!!

Those pics at that link are screaming for captions UV, LOL!!

Sounds like Jake and pals had a very busy weekend in Texas, love to hear that he left a 20% tip.

Cool to hear that Jake was so wekll prepared and did a lot of his stunts for Pop.

Beautiful photo/stills from the trailer, thanks.

And thanks anon. for that facebook link! Now I have to think of an original and exciting question so Jake can choose me!!!

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the link, anon. I hope Jake's answers are more exciting than Bruckheimer's. We know he'll look better, at least :)

Reese is hang out in Nashville. Spotted out shopping. Also spotted visiting with Gwyneth Paltrow who's shooting a movie there.

lawgoddess said...

Really nice to see Jake and Chris out together again. Chris is such a good-looking guy, and they look good together!

Jake is going to wear out that white shirt. He must love it to death!

JoeAnn said...

Heads-up for E! today. They ran a little sneak of PoP, paying special attention to Jake's hot bod. Good taste those folks.

Chica said...

Love the pics of Jake and Chris!!!

Happy Birthday to your daughter Bobbyanna and your Mom Suvee.

Thanks for the heads up JoAnn, E usually repeats.

I think Jake's answers will be a bit more intersting than Jerry's UV!

They are predicting a blizzard here in NY tomorrow, all NY GB peeps: Get real, Sass batten down the hatches!!!

mary said...

i saw the pop sneek peak on e e very short but did show jake topless and a qick interview

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the E! info, JoeAnn. Mary, was it on E! news? I'll set the DVR.

I saw a funny tweet about the questions for Jake: "Is 'Will you marry me?' a valid question?" Hee.

mary said...

yes it was E news

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Mary - got it :) It's in the last 10 minutes for anyone checking out the repeat (I think it repeats at 2AM and noon).

I have to watch again but it looked like there might have been a couple of new shots in there. Fun.

UltraViolet said...

Lots of tweets of Jake at the Troubadour to see Mumford and Sons. There's even sort of a photo.

Interesting interview with the Source Code writer. There are some spoiler-y lines.

Carla said...

Sorry, I am late but all the best wishes for Suvee`s mom and Bobbyanna`s daughter.

On the Lakers pictures it seems that there is another guy with Jake and Chris, he looks slightly familiar, does anyone know who he is?

Thanks for the interview with Ben Ripley, good to see the project is getting such a positive response and I am so glad that Jake is working with young, creative and innovative people.

Tweety said...

I will have to catch Jake on E at noon today, no work today for me in MD!

I love this tweet about Jake at the concert:

@literatim Jake totally fanboyed over them. So cute to watch! And LA definitely loves them. Sold out show but the crowd was so tame. :D

UltraViolet said...

The concert tweets are great, aren't they, Tweety? I liked this one, from that same twitterer:

It was insane! ... He was screaming & clapping louder than we were

I love Fanboy Jake.

Carla, I don't know who that guy is. He looks familiar to me, too, but I don't know why.

Forgot to say yesterday how much of a drag it is that there's still no release date for Brothers in Germany. I can't believe that!

Chica said...

Sounds like Jake had a blast at that concert last night. Thanks for the twicpic and the tweets!

No work for me today due to the snow. My office move has been delayed which is fine with, I'm not looking forward to the new space, ugh.

mary said...

what concert did jake go to?

Chica said...

He went to see Mumford and Sons at the Troubadour in L.A. last night Mary.

Sheba baby said...

I miss seeing Jake with Chris, thanks for the pics! Jake makes the funniest faces some times.

I really like the what I'm reading about Source code so far, can't wait!

Not familair with Mumford and Sons but it sounds like Jake and everyone else that tweeted had a great time at the concert.

Hope everyone submitted their question for Jake on the Pop facebook, I did!

Saw the E bit on Jake, the things I do for Jake, Ha, ha! I despise that channel but it was worth it.

I love all the PR for Pop that Disney is doing so far.

UV/FL: sorry that you are having problems , it pisses me off that you have to do this but I understand.

get real said...

Chica, yeah I am home too because of the snow. It is coming down harder now.

Just saw the E! News PoP clip, thanks for the heads up, JoeAnn. I was able to catch the replay. Again, PoP looked really good and so did shirtless Jake. :p

Great to see the pic/read the tweets that Jake was enjoying himself at the concert. Sounds like he had fun. :)

I have to smile at the number of tweets that reference TDAT! They are hilarious. People looking for Jake Gyllenhaal to rescuee them from the weather!

In her other tweets she said she's a reporter for some SciFi outlet, and she was at Jerry Bruckheimer's office. She seemed excited to be at Bruckheimer's office meeting Jake.

Thanks to twitter, I think this is a little peek at the various marketing platforms, and how Disney/Bruckheimer is laying out their media campaign. Refreshing, isn't it!:)

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

The TDAT twitters are hysterical today!

Yes it's freshing and fascinating Bobbyanna, so far Disney is doing all the right things with Prince of Persia promotion.

mary said...

spam all you want tweety i love hearing about jake and what hhes doing

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for all the tweets and the patience :)

Interesting that Jake is doing some PoP press. Wonder who else is getting to talk to him.

This sounds like one of the tweeters from last night:

Bonus: Jake Gyllenhaal was in attendance last night. He stood in the balcony right above us and watched the show from there. I'm so glad I didn't notice him until the very end of the show because otherwise, I would've been so distracted. But he was rockin' out and having a fantastic time. Yes, he totally fanboyed over them. At some point, he was screaming and clapping louder than we were. So cute (and yes, he's soooo gorgeous in person).

Another tweeter reported, slightly resentfully, that Jake got to go backstage.

For Valentine's Day, Moviefone lists the 10 Screen Couples We're Psyched To See in 2010:

Jake Gyllenhaal & Gemma Arterton
Starring In: 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' (May 28)
Why We're Psyched: This fantastical video-game adaptation about a sixth-century Persian prince who must save the world from a dastardly nobleman is obviously an effects-heavy popcorn movie. That's all well and good, but what we really want to see is said prince (a buff, insanely hot-looking Gyllenhaal) trade quips and, ah, other things with Brit actress Arterton (Bond Girl from 'Quantum of Solace' who will also be seen this year in 'Clash of the Titans'), who plays his plucky -- and gorgeous -- princess companion. Talk about striking visuals...

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, sheba baby :) I hate E! too but sometimes, you have to sit through them.

The tweets referring TDAT keep coming; some of them are pretty funny. Hope everyone's home and tucked away from the snow. We didn't really get much here, despite the dire forecast. I'm not complaining!

UltraViolet said...

Stephanie posted new Jake pics on the IHJ forum. And I accidentally posted them until I realized she asked us not to repost anywhere.

He's with a shaved-head Peter, and it looks like he's wearing a new/old ring. He looks good :)

A few tidbits tonight. An article about an Indian actress who has a small role in PoP:

I didn’t even know the film’s story. Whatever we had to do was explained to us on that particular day. They asked me if I knew how to put mehendi and when I said yes, I was asked to put it on Gemma Artenton, the lead actress.”

Having shot for around four weeks for the film, Ambika is in awe of the set which was created in Pinewood studios in London. She got to interact with the film’s lead actor Jake Gyllenhal of Brokeback Mountain fame. “We broke the ice and he kept us engaged — he’s really funny,” she reveals.

Interesting that they didn't let the actors in smaller roles have the whole script/story.

David Bergstein is up to more tricks. Just freaking find a way to get Nailed to the public, David.

New LEGO photo.

Sheba baby said...

Wow, Peter looks so different with his head shaved. Jake looks good and zi see the return of the pinhy ring, I don't think he has worn it since BBM/Jarhead promo!

Enough with the BS, I want to see Nailed too.

bobbyanna said...

I love the way he "tucks in" his shirt.:)

Extra said...

What's amazing about the story on Bergstein is that he is still allowed to wheel and deal, unbelieveable.

Love the Lego Battle of Alamut set and how great to see that Jake and Gemma made the list for the top ten on screen couples people are excithed to see!

I didn't even recognize Peter, Jake looks good and happy until he sees the paps.

UltraViolet said...

Morning, Extra :)

Not sure if people saw Maggie on Jimmy Kimmel. She talks about being at Jake's when she got word of her nomination, about what a great chef Jake is - she even makes a reference to Chris. And she says the pancakes Jake made for her that morning were so bad even Ramona wouldn't eat them :)

Tweety said...

Thanks for the heads up on the new pics on IHJ!

Looks like he is doing a Disney promo for Pop, this kid sounds really excited:

Can't wait!

signat said...

It looks like the pinky ring that Reese used to wear in the pics posted on IHJ not sure .I assume she gave it back but it's interesting that he is wearing it. I will have to take a good look at it again.

There is one set of pics where she is wearing 3 rings, all on her left hand. It's in the Lakers game pics from last year. One looks like a signet ring, one a gold band and the other I think was gold with a cluster of tiny hearts.

Good to see him with Peter, love the video of Maggie, never realized how funny she is!

Anonymous said...

Reese is tiny; no way a ring of Jake's would fit her.

signat said...

It would fit if it's a pinky ring, and Jake has slender fingers, and a slender pinky finger.

And she didn't wear it on her pinky.

UltraViolet said...

Okay, folks, enough ring talk. We don't need endless speculation - we have no idea what it is or why he's wearing it.

Thanks for playing!

get real said...

What a fun interview with Maggie on Kimmel! I loved her Jake cooking comments, even the bad pancakes, and the mention of Chris.

Great Tweets, UV. Can't wait to see the promos!

I adore the pics of Jake and Peter. Jake is looking so relaxed and great and I like that he is wearing the pinkie ring again. Peter cut his hair, seems that would be for a movie.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

That video of Maggie was fun to watch.

Love the pics of Jake and Peter. Ah rings, I remember back in the day when Jake wore them all the time!

I can't wait for the Disney promo either!

It's in the Eye candy section Lawgoddess!:

Monica said...

In an interview with German magazine Maxim(2005 or 2006):
Especially because of the three rings he wears on his smallest finger. Two of them are gold, marked with the words "create" and "carpe diem" [enjoy the day], and the third has a black diamond, symbolizing a commitment of himself to himself, he says.

My friend translated this interview a while ago.

Monica said...

Correction: interview to german magazine Maxim.

Perhaps the look of Peter is to play the villain of the Green Lantern.

Thanks for all informations.

Sag actor said...

I have a feeling that we will never see Nailed. If the film is not finished, the straight to DVD option seems bleak as well.

Looking forward to the DVD release of Brothers.

Get well Bill Clinton, sending best wishes and prayers.

I was looking in the Media section.

I just loved hearing Maggie talk about Jake and his awful pancakes, what a cute story!

I can't wait to see what else Disney comes up with regarding merchandising and promo for Pop, i'm loving everything so far.

Thanks for the heads up on the new pics of Jake and Peter UV/Extra, he looks great but I wonder like monica if Peter's look isn't for the Green Lantern.

Get well Mr. Clinton.

Monica said...

Peter Sarsgaard/Sinestro: Green Lantern

The video of the interview was removed from youtube. What Maggie talked about Chris?

bobbyanna said...

Maggie didn't actually mention Chris by name, monica. When she and Jimmy Kimmel talked about what a great cook Jake is, she referred to "Jake's best friend" (that would be Chris,) who used to work as a sous chef at Mario Batali's restaurant, Babbo's, in NYC. She said Jake would work there as a line cook. I seem to remember Jake mentioning that a long while ago.

mary said...

cant wait to start seeing those pop promos

UltraViolet said...

Get better, Bill!

From a reporter, Heather Newgen:

just interviewed Jake Gyllenhaal on the KABC 7 soundstage. it was nervewracking, but I did it and got a good interview.

Cindy Adams repeats Jake's story of his first kiss:

Jake Gyllenhaal: "It was in a bowling alley. She grabbed me, pulled me outside, pushed me against a car and stuck her tongue down my throat." He never mentioned how she scored in bowling . . .

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Youtube returned to raise 3950 Jake's videoes!...

Shondra said...

Good news regarding Bill Clinton: they say that he will be released from the hospital today!!

I remember that story about Jake's first kiss, ha, ha!!

Excited about the Pop promotions too, love the pics on IHJ of Jake and Peter.

Thanks for that link monica, now we know why Peter looks that way now!

bobbyanna said...

OT but not: The March issue of Vanity Fair arrived,their annual Hollywood issue. As I was skimming thru, I found an article on the "fabulous" Ryan Kavanaugh, and Relativity Media. Haven't read it yet, but at first glance, UV, you were right...and then some.:)

(The head shot from the DVD cover of "Brothers" is SO distracting. It's making my computer slower. Can't seem to leave the page.)

Ginny said...

For anyone in the UK, PoP Jake is on the cover of this months Total Film mag, it also has a 5-6 page article where they speak to Jake, Mike Newell and Jerry B.

I'm sorry I do not have a scanner to scan it for you. There are a couple of pics I have not seen before, one of Jake fighting (on rocks) one of him stretched between two buildings with people running under him and one of Gemma.

I don't know when they done this interview but it must have been recent as they talk about Avatar.

Here is a tiny bit of the interviews.

Newell on "dropping a $200M franchise on the shoulders of a sleepy-eyed 27 year old who has barely thrown a punch in his career was a massive gamble "

"Yeah it is, But I have known Jake since he was little and I'd seen this quality on screen. He's not John Wayne, who's a massive block of wood. Jake - you can see into him. He has a very soft and gentle side. He's an action hero made in heaven"

Interviewer to Jake, Do you worry that swords-and-sandals epics are tough to pull off.

Jake - This is not a swords-and-sandals epic. it's definitely not that.None of us wear sandals in this movie. I made a conscious choice and it was very important to me that I did not wear sandals. this. This is a huge, classic epic, filled with real characters. It has those wonderful old-school elements you love about film and yet at the same time it's right there on the cutting edge.

It is a very good read and I wish I was able to share it all with you.

Oh, Ginny. Thanks for the info! "An action hero made in heaven" is a great quote. I'm sure IHJ will have the scans soon.

Agent K - are you out there with a scanner? :)

Bobbyanna, I look forward to reading that article with breathless anticipation. Hee.

Leonor, I'm not sure what you mean about the youtube videos.

Hi, Shondra! :)

We subscribe to Total Film so we get it a few days before it reaches the shops, and yep that is quite a quote.

I haven't read VF in ages, used to look forward to the Oscar issue. Thnaks for the heads up on Kavanaugh Bobbyanna, I may have to check that interview out.

I love that quote from Newell about Jake/Dastan, thanks for sharing that with us!

UV, I think Leonor said that there were some Jake videos on youtube that seem to have disappeared but now are back. If i'm wrong Leonor, please feel free to correct me!

Leonor E. G. Núñez said...

Oh! Yes! I wanted to say it. Thanks!

Actually, I've read about half of it now, and pages 214-215 are really fascinating as far as insight into how Kavanaugh "picks" movies to produce, finance, etc.
Part of me wanted to slap him :)
I haven't had a chance to get much farther. I hope brothers spy and sag actor get a chance to read it, too.

Forgot to say, thank you, Ginny! That is a lovely quote. I can't wait to read the entire interview.
The next few months will provide many riches!:)
