Update: Variety has a series for awards season, with actors discussing other actors. Gwyneth Paltrow (unfortunately) was chosen for Jake as Jamie Reidy in Love & Other Drugs:
"This might be my favorite of his performances. It's the first time his edginess, insouciance and sense of humor all come through, as well as all of Jake's warmth. He's very appealing. He's naked all the time, too, which is another upside.
In the very beginning of the film, you see him in his womanizing phase. He works in an electronics shop and is this natural-born salesman. He's really kind of cheeky, flirty, naughty and kind of base. It's fun to watch him, because he's being very boyish. Then he makes this big evolution and his character finds a lot of depth. But he doesn't lose that sense of humor. He stays fresh and funny.
It's great to see both Jake and Anne Hathaway going for it and being gutsy and very open. She plays a woman with early-onset Parkinson's, and that pulls him out of his shallowness and immaturity. It's a sweet story, and they play it with a lot rawness and vulnerability."
Nice to see Jake included in this feature.
Love & Other Drugs made its American debut before the long holiday weekend. But like magic, we still have some Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway interviews, movie stills and photos to digest.
This might be an old interview, but I don't remember seeing the part about Marlon Brando before. Love Jake's reaction there :)
There is a new video of Jake and Anne talking to the Today Show, Australia. I can't get it to embed, but the link is here.
Anne talks to Australian radio about the nudity. Something different! And she has an extended interview with Terry Gross on NPR. I wish Jake had gotten that one.
