West Coast time

Update: A scene from Source Code. Spoiler (and frost) warning!

Jake Gyllenhaal was spotted in Silver Lake on Wednesday, apparently trying to avoid both the rain and the paps.

I'm digging the left-profile, dramatic portraits.

Looks like he's a little out of practice running from the cameras!

"Ding dong!"

Also, I think I had that jacket in high school. A long time ago.

Look at this adorkable photo of a young Jake.

mary said...

love the left profile pic too UV i noticed it right zaway he looks gorgeous

bobbyanna said...

"aDORKable" is right! OMG, his hair! Nothin' like a little product, Jake.

As for yesterday's pics, it's amazing, but with the shorter haircut and a shave, and he looks almost ten years younger!

Wish that would work for me...well not the shave.:/

Monica said...

Hello, Jake!

Paula said...

He does look so much younger especially with that jacket, definately a flashback so HS, ha,

I had to look twice at that pic UV, I barely recognized him, what a great find!!

Thanks so much for the Valentine's day post, I loved looking at those clips and revisiting Jake's greatest kisses.

bobbyanna said...

I LOVE Jake's left profile!

OT but not:
The DVD of LAOD is officially coming out March 1st, even tho quite a few people on Twitter & FB say they're already watching it at home.
I just saw this article in THR, on the economic impact of film piracy. If anyone's interested, here's a link:

Chica said...

Love the left profile and I think I had a jacket like that way back then in red!

Adorkable is so true, and what's up with that hair Jake?

I noticed the tweets about LAOD on DVD and was wondering how since it comes out on 3/1, thanks for the link Bobbyanna.

UltraViolet said...

That picture just cracked me up. I do like Jake's suit and tie, unlike some of his younger wardrobe choices!

Paula, glad you liked the VDay post. It was fun to watch some of those clips. I continue my quest to find a compilation video.

Bobbyanna, I forgot to reply to one of your comments on the last post. I, too, am sick of seeing the same names getting new roles. And no, I wouldn't be tired of it if Jake were one of the names!

UltraViolet said...

Some SC news. According to Film Stage:

full 2:24 trailers for Apollo 18 and Hesher have been completed and a 55-second new trailer for Source Code is on its way.

And a convo following that tweet:

@TheFilmStage That would be big news is some of us haven't seen two out of those three movies. Haha. Just playing with you. But I have.

TheFilmStage: @GermainLussier wait...Source Code or Apollo 18? How was whichever one you saw? Ha.

germainlussier: @TheFilmStage I can't say which specifically but if I had to tell you in Code, I'd say it was solid, fun, but not great.

I can deal with solid and fun, though I'd prefer great. But what I really want is popular!

Why do my comments keep geting deleted, is there a problem with blogger?,

FL said...

I don't know why your comments are getting eaten, Anon. Blogger seems to have its issues.

Let me see if I can post your link for you (which show up in Gyllenbabble's gmail account).

New SC Trailer?

Thanks, Anon.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks for the heads-up, anon. There are days when blogger wont' let me comment, either. It's very frustrating. So apologies for that.

I embedded the link in the post, as well.

I guess the SC train is gearing up. Seems like the L&OD train just dropped us off :)

bobbyanna said...

Thanks so much for the SC clip!! I'm really looking forward to this!

Sag Actor said...

The SC clip looks great!

It would be great if it was solid and a hit too.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Jake is looking really good here, the pap photos almost look like stills from SC!

Wow, Jake is really unrecognizable in that photo UV, very goofy/cute!

The clip looks good. I need to check out what else comes out on 4/1 to see the SC competition that weekend, I want Jake to have a hit and I think he has a chance with SC.

Tweety said...

Blogger is really being a bitch today! That first pic of Jake posted from SC looks really intense.

Sounds like he is gearing up for SC promo:

pilarellis: Just booked another long lead press day for next week. This time it's with Jake Gyllenhaal. Oh yeah!

You can tell that he is annoyed with the paps in these photos, he does look hot though!

Jake sure has changed since that photo was taken, from dorky to gorgrous!

Lola said...

Jake looks really hot in the new photos. I like the new jacket. I'm going to try and be strong and resist these SC clips. I watched them all for LOAD and i have to say that it ruined it for me, just a little bit though. So jake is going to start promotion next week? That was very fast! I don't want to think about what is going to happen after SC propmotion though:(

UltraViolet said...

I like your inadvertent coining of a new word ther, Lola. Propmotion! Jake is like a human prop set in motion to promote his films.

There is going to be a dry spell after SC but we have had a pretty good run for Jake movies and appearances. I just wish the movie itself were longer. I'm also going to try not to watch any more clips. I resisted the urge with L&OD and I think I enjoyed the first viewing more as a result.

Fingers crossed for a solid hit and a solid film, SAG Actor.

OONP, the big 4/1 competition is Hop, which I think is a movie about the Easter Bunny. Sigh.

Tweety, I wonder if we'll hear from anyone actually interviewing Jake next week. And I wonder if it's in LA. Would make sense, since a lot of press will be in town for the Oscars. OTOH, the press is in tow for the Oscars, not a new movie. I guess we'll see.

UltraViolet said...

Here's a teaser for the L&OD DVD. I think they should have done some short, peppy ads like this for the movie release.

Also, the copy from Fox mentions Anne's remarkable performance. Not Jake's. Sigh.

bobbyanna said...

OONP, UV, there's one other movie I noticed, besides "Hop." It's called "Insidious," which is a supernatural horror/thriller. It's rated PG 13, and opens in 2,500 theatres April 1st. Critics have very little effect on these movies when teens are concerned.:(

Don't know how many screens SC is opening on. I hate that it's so short, but that means more audience turnover.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, I missed that one, Bobbyanna. That could cut into SC's business. Boo.

Still trying to keep hopes realistic, but another good indication:

Since I’m pretty sure I’m under embargo…hypothetically speaking…if I were to have seen an early screening, I might be able to tell you that I thought Source Code was really good. For now that’s all you’ll get out of me.

bobbyanna said...

I know, UV. I sure don't want to be "Debbie Downer.""Insidious" is probably a crapfest, but 2,500 screens is wide.

I checked openings for the week before and after SC. The week before looks OK.

The week after, April 8th,
"Your Highness" opens with Franco & Portman,& a movie called "Hanna" opens. A PG 13 CIA action thriller about a father/daughter team of assassins with Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett and Saoirse Ronan.

I think SC is in decent shape, but we don't know how many screens they'll use. I wish they'd do some smart marketing right now, besides releasing trailer clips and using social media. The marketing should be more imaginative, not necessarily more expensive.

The suspense is frustrating, bcz we all know how hard Jake works on his movies, and he definitely goes all out to "sell" them, too.

bobbyanna said...

OT Happy News:

Yes. Rufus Wainwright and his Partner/Fiance had a baby girl.
Congrats to Rufus!

Extra said...

I think I will resist and not click on that trailer. It was fun with Pop and LAOD but for this kind of movie, I wan't to be surprised and go in not knowing too much even though there is already a lot of stuff already out there.

You're right Bobbyanna, they need to get creative with promotion, Insidious will be going after the same audience.

The previews so far have been positive, I just hope that it opens wide, at least 3,000 screens.

What great news, congrats to Rufus!

bobbyanna said...

I'm really loooking forward to the SXSW Panel, but I'm going to try really hard not to look at stuff from the actual movie.:)

Extra and everyone, here's the announcement from Rufus:

"Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, to proud parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt. The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very very beautiful."

Lorca is Leonard Cohen's daughter. All three are co-parents.

UltraViolet said...

Wow slow news day! And I got nothing, either, lol.

I did see Jake twice on the ABC Oscar commercial, which was nice. Still no word on if he'll present this year. I assume we'd know by now, but maybe they add some in the last week.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, and congrats to Rufus and family. Very sweet announcement.

Chica said...

I was wondering about Jake presenting too UV. He did last year and I don't know if they usually ask someone 2 years in a row.

We will find out soon enough if he is added last minute.

That is exciting news for Rufus, congratulations!!

bobbyanna said...

I'd love to see Jake present, or at least participate in some way, especially with Anne & James hosting. They've announced about
13 people so far, I think. Seems like they'd have more.

Hopefully, he'll at least make the Vanity Fair party and a few others.
Nobody works a tux like Jake does.:)

Yes, it's very slow. No tweets.

We're waiting for a snow & ice storm... at least 3 inches.:(

mary said...

lots of times they announce oscar presenters at the last minute still hoping to see if jake will be onei have seen the oscar commerical too UV

wonder if jake will go to the all star game since its at staples center?

UltraViolet said...

A couple of funny Jake tweets today:

ashgrash: Stuck face to face with Jake Gyllenhaal at Melrose/LaBrea intersection. I sneezed and he mouthed back, "I wanna fuck you to smithereens."

KaraBarbato: Meaghan and Karen just passed Jake Gyllenhaal while hiking on a trail. One more reason why I should move to California.

Anonymous said...

I was wondering where Jake was hiding himself. I hope he might be presenting at the Oscars.

I see Michelle is in LA, I wonder if Matilda is with her?

Monica said...

I'm very busy these days, but still allowing an hour to read this blog and others.
Thanks for all information, UV and other members.

bobbyanna said...

Just a little something from Twitter:

"Runyon sightings of the day: Jake Gyllenhaal and Chino from Deftones"
1 hr. ago

Anonymous said...

I've been MIA due to the passing away for a very close family friend:(

Thanks somuch for all the updates and sightings. I'll keep away from anymore SC clips and spoilers and just wait untol ot opned on April 1st!

Josie said...

That's me, obviously very tired and using an old blogger account, I used my middle name then!

mary said...

so sorry for your loss josie you havent missed much pretty quiet in jake news

UltraViolet said...

Hi Josie - shall we call you JJ? :)

Sorry to hear about your friend. That must be tough for you and for all the family.

Mary is right - not much has been happening. SC is gearing up and like you, I'm going to try to avoid the clips. Especially since the movie is only 90 minutes long. Don't want to see it all before opening day.

Monica, hope it's a good kind of busy :)

Bobbyanna, looks like Jake is getting his hike on these days. And staying away from the rest of his CZ haunts!

Anonymous said...

Hi Guys

New pics - looks lush but a bit annoyed at waiting shutter bugs


Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

He does look cranky but cute Anon, thanks!

bobbyanna said...

Yes, lush is definitely a good word.:) Thanks anon.

THR has a list of paries and social events this week leading up to the Oscars, etc.

Hope Jake gets to participate.
Also, they just announced that Jennifer Hudson and Justin Timberlake will present at the Oscars, so apparently it's not all firmed up yet!

Glad you are back josie. Very sorry to hear of your troubles.

UltraViolet said...

I wonder if Jake was at the Four Seasons for that long-lead press day mentioned last week. I hope it wasn't for the usual set of yearbook photos. I'd like to see him in something other than that plaid shirt!

bobbyanna said...

I agree, UV. Well, I saw something on FB, I think, that someone thought she spotted him in a store on Rodeo, but not sure. Maybe a new shirt?:)

Us magazine(!) has him checking into the 4 Seasons, while other sites say he was making a "social call." Your reasoning probably makes more sense!

With LAOD out on DVD March 1st, and Source Code's press rollout, seems like he should be participating in the Oscars. But that makes too much sense.

UltraViolet said...

I think it was press, Bobbyanna. Tweet from Duncan Jones:

Long lead press day today. What is that, I hear you ask? Well, once upon a time, film interviews used to be printed on paper...

bobbyanna said...


I just saw this on twitter,too.

"At the #GlobalCreativeForum cocktail at @YamashiroLA with Jamie Foxx and Jake Gyllenhaal. Beautiful view of LA"

Apparently the forum was also going on all day, with the SecGen of the UN, Ed Norton, Don Cheadle, etc.

Glad Jake did his press stuff and sounds like he is also out and about. But no pics!:(

There's also a tweet from some tech/geek writer about turning down the chance to interview Jake.
(She's also changing jobs...which is a good thing, IMO.:))

bobbyanna said...

Correction. She didn't say she turned him down. She said that about Harrison Ford.

Actual tweet:

"You know that you're a nerd when you respond "What's this got to do with tech?" when offered the opportunity to interview Jake Gyllenhaal."

earlier today

UltraViolet said...

I saw that, Bobbyanna. Doesn't make her a nerd - it means she's severely misguided!

Hope some pics will emerge from tonight. Jake does like to party with Jamie!

UltraViolet said...

New post :)
