It was Source Code junket weekend in Los Angeles with Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Duncan Jones doing the rounds of international, national and local press. Sounds grueling for the main players, but for some of the interviewers, not so much:
I highly recommend sustained eye contact with Jake Gyllenhaal to brighten anyone's day.
Yeah, I could see the appeal in that.
The video interviews are trickling in. First up, Jake talking with an old junket friend, also named Jake:
Here's Jake with a reporter from unWiredTV:
Jake on Access Hollywood, talking about Anne Hathaway's hosting the Oscars, as well as his next movie:
And here he discusses working with Michelle and why he won't share his Quebecois accent:
Jake on the movie in light of real events:
A couple more treats from SXSW - the full Q&A session from the premiere:
I posted a link to this interview last week, but I hadn't noticed that you can listen to the audio. It's a roundtable interview, and it's fun to hear Jake's voice. It is spoiler-full, however, so listen with caution. Jake's enthusiasm for the film is apparent; I love how he describes a crew member's reaction after one pivotal scene. I wonder if he was able to sustain it through this whole weekend of questions.
