Back on this side of the pond

Jake Gyllenhaal is back in New York, ready to continue the promotion for Love & Other Drugs. Jake is scheduled for a few talk show appearances, as well as more screenings. Here he's seen arriving at JFK:

I don't usually like those in-car shots. But look at the man framed in the rear window. That made me laugh.

And here he is leaving his hotel room today:

This is not a new photo, but I'd never seen it before. And Jake and Mr. B look great :)

A nice photo of Jake, Anne and Lucy Roucis, from an article about the actress:

For those who missed this over the weekend, IHJ has a new message board site. The old one was having too many issues, so they set up a new board, with the same look. So don't be confused.

And if you missed it, here's the red band trailer for L&OD:

Awww! he looks all sleepy at first.
Bundled up, too. I love it when Jake shares my time zone!:)

If I had a shot at going to a screening/Q&A, I would SO be there!:)

I agree about Rendition, FL/UV. Totally. I think it's an exceptional movie,Jake does an excellent job, and god bless Gavin Hood for seeing the hot & sexy!

Thanks for all the links in the previous post, too. Loved seeing Lucy at the AFI festival with Anne & Jake.

Of course Jake spent USD $150K+ to fly 'poor' TS to London...LOL!

OT: I HATE my roof. They are noisey,nocturnal
creeps! They were bowling with walnuts all night:(

mary said...

yea i love it when hes back on our side of the pond too

TS was scheduled to perform over there any way she probably just flew in a few days early doubt if jake paid for her come out early those sites just like to bulit up the stories:)

UltraViolet said...

Morning, Mary! I wonder if Jake will make any visits to your neck of the woods for L&OD promotion. I was hoping he'd do Ellen, but it doesn't seem to be happening.

Eek, Bobbyanna. I hope the squirrels cease and desist. And yes, bless Gavin Hood. wonder sometimes what they all took away from that experience. It was such a good movie that did so poorly. I hope there are good feelings for everyone involved.

mary said...

i was hoping he would but yea doesnt look like it doesnt seem to be doing any other talk shows either unless he will be doing something the week of the 22nd which i would of thought would of been announced by now guess we will just have to wait and see

bobbyanna said...

I really love when new audiences "discover" Jake,and start watching his other movies, like Rendition. The tweets/FB mentions are SO positive!

"...those sites just like to bulit up the stories:)"

Exactly right, mary!

Hope Jake does the morning talk shows,too,in NYC. I'd have loved seeing him with Kimmel, Conan, & Ellen, all in CA.

Saw a tweet from some PR person, who has free passes to the premiere of NYC, coming up, but no date given.

UltraViolet said...

I like how the cost of flying Taylor to London keeps going up, lol.

I'm surprised that Anne isn't doing more talks shows, also. I hope these L&OD marketing folks aren't going to let us down. They need a stronger Facebook presence. I don't think I've seen any ads, and the page is pathetic.

Here's another mini-review.

Chica said...

The LAOD official FB page is truly pathetic:((

Is Anne scheduled to do any talk shows in NY this week? If not that is surprising.

I hope your friend decides to go to the screening tonight UV, I have plans after work today otherwise I would go downtown and hang at the theater to get a peek of Jake!

I would assume that Taylor would want to be in the UK a few days early to get ready for her appearence on that BBC1 show on Sunday so I think they took that info and the fact that Jake was still in the UK after the press junket made it real easy for them!

UltraViolet said...

I'll expect a full report from him if he does go, Chica!

This twitterer says she's doing press with Jake this week and that she's currently at Charlie Rose. I've always wanted Jake to do the CR show, even if he is a very annoying interviewer.

It bugged me that Jake didn't get to do the show for BBM, although it was probably due to Zodiac filming.

UltraViolet said...

updated the post with a couple of pics from today.

The NYC twitterers are so much more informative than Londoners. Unless of course, Jake really was in his hotel room all weekend ;)

No physical picture but the memory of standing next to him for a good 30 second elevator ride will last FOREVER.

Just rode on a freaking elevator with Jake Gyllenhaal.


Totally just walked past Jake Gyllenhaal...we'll, maybe he walked towards me ;)

mary said...

gossip cop has shot down the rumor that jake hired a private plane to fly TS over stated she flew over on the tour plane we knoew it wasnt true anyway

bobbyanna said...

UV, I'm confused(!:). The new pics of Jake "leaving his hotel room" are from today? Bcz in them,he's wearing basically the same scarf/suit, etc. he wore to the Hsrry Potter thing and the LAOD screening Q&A in London. When I first saw them, I thought they were leftovers from London. I need to check out twitter today!:)

Jake and Anne did so many press interviews together, maybe she's focused her SNL hosting duties. I've read that the SNL people try to get their guest host as involved as possible.

mary said...

jake tends to wear the same outfitsalot it does look the same outfit he wore to the hp premeire

bobbyanna said...

Oops! Just noticed the shoes. He wore different shoes to HP premiere. :)

T said...

Love the way he wears and re wears his clothes and he always looks fine in them.
I think there are more tweaters in NYC than London, some times we don't see things that are under our noses, I've walked past family and friends before (my bad)

FL said...

ABC Kitchen: roasted carrot & avocado salad (w/o sour cream) was good. Broccoli too soft & overcooked. Jake Gyllenhaal at next table: bonus.

Back to familiar Flatiron CZ. Flatiron, the new West Village. ;-)

Office of Nancy Pelsosi said...

I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, I thought these were the HP pics too!

Thanks Bobbyanna, he changed his shoes, he sure loves grey scarves and they love him don't they?

Ditto regarding Rendition, I loved him in that role, too bad his performance has been overlooked.

UltraViolet said...

I love Jake in scarves!

Here's a youtube video of Jake leaving the NYer fest and signing a few autographs.

From an article about Zwick and L&OD:

... Yet the film’s saving graces are the well-hewn performances by its lead actors.

Casting Gyllenhaal and Hathaway was a no-brainer, says Zwick.

“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how good their work has been these past number of years,” the director said of his stars during a recent interview with the AJC at the Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown. “The opportunity to reveal something about each of these actors – [Hathaway’s] earthiness, her sexuality, her comedy and [Gyllenhaal’s] charm – that’s a real tempting thing to do.”

Moviegoers may be surprised by the rawness of Anne Hathaway’s most adult role yet (compare it to "The Princess Diaries" and "The Devil Wears Prada"), perhaps even more so than by her Oscar-nominated portrayal of a recovering drug addict in "Rachel Getting Married" (2008).

In "Drugs," Hathaway’s brave turn as Maggie -- a feisty free spirit struggling with a disease for which there is no cure -- had a major effect on her costar Jake Gyllenhaal. In fact, the actor, who also starred with Hathaway in "Brokeback Mountain" (2005), won’t rule out the possibility of major recognition for the actress in the upcoming 2011 awards season.

“Anne is just beginning to be at the height of her career,” Gyllenhaal said in a November 6 phone call to the AJC. “You can sense it with her, in her work. It was amazing to be around her. “

The sheer volume of nude scenes in the film may surprise viewers, but Zwick defends what he calls the film’s “organic” approach to intimacy: “It’s nudity having as much to do with conversation as it does with sex,” says the director of spicy bed scenes. “If it’s just exploitative, then that’s where you start to say, ‘Where’s the popcorn?’” ...

Although Gyllenhaal plays a Viagra salesman in the film, he says "Love and Other Drugs" has much less to do with sex and pills than with delivering a much-needed prescription for Carpe diem: “Health is one thing, but living is another,” he says. “That’s what this movie is about.”

Sorry if you just saw a bunch of posts in a row. Blogger had a little fit.

" some times we don't see things that are under our noses, I've walked past family and friends before (my bad)"

That made me laugh, so funny!
For a second there i also thought those pics were the same ones from london, but then i noticed the shoes. I like this scarf thing he has going on. He looks so handsome. I think there was something missing in rendition. What that was i'm not sure,but overall it's a good movie. I'll always cherish that opening scene from that movie:)

bobbyanna, being picky. said...

Watched E! tonight and didn't see any LAOD spots. They did a feature on Cher and Christina Aguilera and a couple of ads for Burlesque. You can't imagine my surprise when another trailer ad popped up, for a movie with Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson! Even tho their movie doesn't open until mid-December!:(
Hopefully LAOD will go to saturation advertising by mid-week.

Get Real said...

Jake is back in NYC!!!! And looking gorgeous and the scarf!!!

Bobbyanna, I have seen a bunch of LAOD ads on a bunch of different channels pretty much every day now. I hope there are more ads coming.

I love that Jake's new CZ is the Flatiron!!! :)

Monica said...

He looks tired and sleepy in the photos of the airport and extremely sexy in the photos leaving the hotel.

It would be wonderful to see him on Charlie Rose. I saw a few programs and liked what I saw.
I remember the interview with Ang and Heath in his program. It was one of the best.

Thanks for all those links, UV.

From facebook:
Quick 'Source Code' update for you, from Duncan Jones on the Twitter today:

"In grading session with Source Code... you folks are going to be SPOILED! I'm gonna give you ALL the colours!

Did have comedy moment with grader as I thought the whole thing looked milky until I realized a table light was reflecting on my"

bobbyanna said...

Found this from a girl on FB: "Shared a plane ride back from London with Jake Gyllenhall and my suitcase arrived in baggage claim before his. Loved his flannel shirt"

Yes, monica, I loved that HEath and Ang interview.

I am loving the cut of Jake's suits lately. He looks very sexy.

Monica said...

Interview from youtube:

Jake and Ed Zwick

bobbyanna said...

Monica, thanks for the video of Ed and Jake.I really enjoyed it. I loved Ed's description of the 'chemistry,' as the film allowing Jake and Anne to be briefly promiscuous and fall in love until the director says cut.

Also interesting to hear Zwick's enthusiastic comments about Jake's singing! He wants Anne and Jake to sing together! I have a very strong feeling we are going to hear Jake sing before too long.:)

Chica said...

Me too Bobbyanna, perhaps a surprise appearence on SNL with Anne?

It's refreshing to hear a director so enthusiastic about the actors in his movie, Ed, Jake and Anne would be wonderful guest on Charlie Rose.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the video link, Monica. Posted it in the new post :) And thanks for the Duncan tweet. He managed not to sound disdainful of SC for once :)

Thanks for the tweet, Bobbyanna. That was a fun one.

It's fun to see Ed and Jake together. I really hope they did tape Charlie Rose. I guess we'll find out!

New post :)
