More video and print interviews with Jake Gyllenhaal promoting Source Code. First up, a "generic" interview that's spiced up by some off-camera swearing at the beginning.
This second part didn't work for me - hope it's fixed now:
Jake and Duncan Jones talk to Fandango:
The Chicago Sun Times has a nice piece on Jake, starting out with a description of the crowd that came to watch Jake and company film at The Bean:
His fans call themselves Gyllenhaalics and there is no intervention. They just need to have their fix of those pecs and that sweet smile.
In Chicago, they gathered early in the morning at Millennium Park. Their ages ranged from 5 to 65, and they were on a mission to find the object of their addiction: Jake Gyllenhaal.
The 30-year-old heartthrob was filming a scene for his new movie “Source Code” in the park, and pandemonium ensued.
“Chicago is so cool in my book,” Gyllenhaal said. “We shot in the early morning hours and we had the whole park, but without giving too much away, we were filming in front of a statue that was very reflective. You could see the faces of the fans in the background going nuts and waving. It didn’t exactly fit into the plot about a guy who is hiding out.
“So I asked the ladies to shift a little to the left. It was pretty funny because the crowd moved together like one big dance step. It was everybody to the left in a few big steps. Then everybody to the right. I love my fans. They were so cooperative.”
Director Duncan Jones said Gyllenhaal was the only man for the role.
“I’m a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal,” Jones said. “He’s an incredibly talented actor and he’s not painful on the eyes. He’s also incredibly brave. He’s an actor who is always willing to take a risk.”
He became an international sensation playing a gay cowboy in Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain.” His memories of working with co-star Heath Ledger are precious to him.
“I remember seeing him after we were both cast. We were at this party and we didn’t have real space to talk. But somehow we found a little corner and we started doing some of the lines,” he said. “We both thought the story was so beautiful and we wanted to service that story in whatever way possible.
“We had no time to waste.”
Gyllenhaal said his next film is “a beautiful screenplay about two Los Angeles police department officers. It’s about the nature of duty and friendship, and about the reasons why young guys put their lives in danger.”
There's also another spoilery account of one of the roundtable interviews from the junket. I think this one has more detailed answers from Jake. There's a major spoiler of sorts in the article, so hold off if you don't want to be teased!
