Police work

When Zodiac came out, MTV UK did a special. I never managed to find it on youtube, but someone posted it on tumblr, and here it is. In two parts.

I honestly don't remember ever seeing it. It might be old news to some folks, but I was happy to see it. It also reminded me of some gorgeous Zodiac stills folks have posted on tumblr.

At least we know Jake did get to give Jennifer her award!

A photo of Jake with Nelly Castillo, one of the cast members from End of Watch:

Hope everyone dealing with Irene is safe and has power and water.

Found a few tweets and posts with comments about the loud bullets/shooting on EoW filming. Must be a disturbing sound, even when you find out it's not real.

Also, Ben Lyons said on the E site that EoW is scheduled to come out in the fall of 2012. Not sure if we knew that.

Apparently Jake is in town.

From FB:

Is soo jealous of my big brother! He apparently just had a nice little chat with my celebrity crush...Jake Gyllenhal...yes, it's true! He just texted me to let me know! Must be nice to be a fancy chef in a swanky Cali restaurant! #letmefoldmorelaundryplease

Chica said...

Wow! This is new to me, what a fascinating behind the scenes looks at one of the best detective/police dramas ever made.

I love Zodiac, it should have won all kinds of Awards, the fact that it didn't remains a head scratcher to me.

And Jake looks so young in these clips!

That must be scary to hear that even if the bullet sounds are fake, 2012 release date for EOW sounds more likely than 2013.

Thanks anon., there will be some fundraising activities going on in Sf this weekend for Edible Schoolyards, etc so we will be seeing some more Jake sightings!

The hurricane has been downgraded to a tropical storm, it wasn't as bad as advertised thank God!

bobbyanna said...

This is a nice find, UV! I've never seen it before.

Chica, glad things weren't too bad for you. Hope everyone comes thru OK.

bobbyanna said...

Forgot to comment on the FB sighting. Glad Jake's in SF celebrating with Alice. : )

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I've never seen any of this footage either, thanks for finding it and posting UV!

I can't get over how detailed and the video was and all the behind the scenes footage, I don't reacall seeing anything like that here in the US when Jake was promoting Zodiac.

Glad to here that Jake is continuing to support The Edible project with Alice & Co this weekend!

Happy to hear that the 2012 date for EOW has been confirmed.

All pretty calm here, just a bit messy. Most of Bridgeport didn't loose power, but Greenwich and other areas did.

UltraViolet said...

I'm glad these videos were new for other people, too. It's nice to know we can still be surprised :) I had kind of forgotten about this special, so I was thrilled to see it finally.

I hope some of the SF area foodie blogs post some tidbits. There was supposed to be several private dinners for the Chze Panisse celebration; not sure which one Jake went to.

Anonymous said...

we lost power about 1AM just got it back a little after 3. It's amazing to be reminded about how much we rely on electricity. I spent my time doing some spring cleaning in my closet and some writing.

Hope everyone else was okay. I'm going to check out the zodiac vids you posted UV


UltraViolet said...

I thought you meant it came back at 3AM, Lily and wondered why you weren't sleeping :)

Glad it came back, but sounds like you got some stuff done.

About to go check out the beach near me if they don't have the road blocked off.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I should amend my previous comments about Bridgeport! I live in a Co-op and we have a generator so we didn't loose power but almost half of CT lost power.

I bitch and moan about where I live sometimes for various reasons but in times like this I am more than thankful!

It's going to be a pain in the ass though trying to get to work tomorrow, fallen trees are blocking a lot of the streets.

Glad that power returned in your area Lily.

Apparently Jake Gyllenhaal has been spotted @fourbarrel and the Zeit. The man clearly knows how to have a fine SF Sunday.

Random celeb spotting today: Jake Gyllenhall in @fourbarrel coffee in the mission. Dude knows his coffee, apparently

Anonymous said...

sorry I meant we didn't get back the power until 3PM. Then it went out again for a few mins. But we're back, hopefully for good.

I just listened to the Zodiac vids. I have never heard them before. Thanks UV

"Oh hey. Spotted: jake gyllenhaal hangin in the mission. Meow."

UltraViolet said...

My beach visit was unremarkable. Very windy, but the surf was calm.

More from one of the tweeters who saw Jake at Four Barrel:

He's SOOOOO #DREAMY! It was hilarious to watch all of the ladies swoon

Apparently, some people got photos with Jake. We'll see if they pop up.

UltraViolet said...

More about Jake's day:

Jake's moved onto Death and Taxes.

Whoa. Jake Gyllenhall and entourage downing bloodies at Zeitgeist.
1 hour ago

No idea if these are true or just nonsense:

Vincent Gallo's dick just joined Jake Gyllenhall at a corner picnic table here at Zeitgeist. They're both sucking down bloodies.

Turns out Jake knows Vincent Gallo. We are calling him.

Monica said...

Jake looks tired in the picture with Nelly Castillo!

Vincent Gallo? he's totally crazy!

Tweety said...

First time that I have seen that MTV/UK/Zodiac video, great footage and interviews.

What a great find UV!

The sounds of bullets flying must be scary, even fake it must sound real.

The Jake tweets sounds like he is enjoying his weekend in SF, but Vincent Gallo? Ewwww! He is beyond vile.

Maybe that tweet was a case of mistaken ID :)

Tweety said...

I'm glad that everything is ok Chica, Lily and OONP.

Jake does looks really tired in that pic Monica d Vince is crazy along with being vile!

UltraViolet said...

This was funny:

Thank god we decided against going to Zeitgeist. Jake Gyllenhall was there & Nikki would have tried to invoke her "One Celebrity" exemption

That guy knows the Gallo tweeter:

@jason_elliott Jake says he's interested, wants to see some pics of Nikki.

@nicolewheaton Jason's jokes aside, Jake is serious. Wants to party.

Jake liked his beer so much he inquired as to where he might find an even better selection of local beers. He's on his way to Shotwell's.

Jake does look tired. I think they are working some long nights on EoW.

Sheba Baby said...

He looks absolutely gorgeous in that first shot:):)

I don't recall seeing this video so it's new to me!

Double yuck regarding the Jake and Gallo sightings. Yeah I know that Jake is a grown man and can hang out with anyone he wants to but still....

Glad to hear that the GB's effected by hurricane Irene are doing fine.

Monica said...

Vincent should be an interesting person.

UltraViolet said...

No idea if the Gallo stuff is true, but you know these Hollywood types :)

If this is true, Jake was getting liquored up for the trip:

sitting next to Jake gyllenhaal on this plane. luckily, i have a copy if secretary on my phone.

bobbyanna said...

Glad everyone made it thru in one piece! I lost power for 25 hrs. last weekend with our storms, it's a real pain. I was shocked at the flooding in Vermont of all places! New Jersey isn't in great shape either. I don't see how anyone could fault you for missing work under the circumstances, OONP.

Sounds like Jake had a great time in SF. Hope we get to see pictures.
Oh,well. Even if Vincent Gallo did stop for a drink, doesn't make them BFFs. He's not top of my list, but I can think of worse people...give me a minute...;)

Monica said...

but I can think of worse people...give me a minute...;)

Me too.

Extra said...

I lost power for about 4 hours, what a mess! Some states got it a lot worst than here so I should be grateful.

I love your detective work in finding new Jake stuff, I never saw this video before!

The video has some gems and i'm impressed that this was done for MTV in the UK. The MTZ crowd wasn't targeted for Zodiac so it was great that they took time to do such an amazing special for the movie.

I don't think Jake was sober on his flight back home based on these sightings, and Vincent Gallo? There are so many names that are going through my head regarding him but I think i will refrain from sharing them here, hee!

UltraViolet said...

Maybe they discussed Chloe Sevigny, is that what you mean, Extra? :)

I hope someday Jake can just talk about what a pain in the ass Fincher was without having to worry about people criticizing HIM for it. It's clear the guy is an over the top control freak.

Mark Ruffalo was still in his Fincher-ass-kissing stage. I couldn't even watch all of his parts on the videos. I wish they'd talked to RDJ instead.

The Aniston stuff was interesting, as was the stuff about Fincher telling Jake to get rid of the pen. It was also funny to think that they were holding Jake up from an awards show, when we know from the DVD commentary and other things that Fincher was annoyed that Jake had awards stuff to worry about when filming Zodiac.

Extra said...

Yeah Chloe:):)

Fincher is well known in HW as being a pain in the ass, Jake is too nice.

When Jake couldn't attend the GG's in '06, rumors spread that he was pissed that he wasn't nominated.

We all know that the real reason Jake was prevented from attending certain awards and doing promo for BBM and Jarhead was because of Fincher , what a jerk.

bobbyanna said...

Mark Ruffalo was sickening, UV! Ugh.

mary said...

Glad every one on the east coast are safe

Sounds like Jake had a great time in SF wondered why he went up there again.

I have no idea who vincent gallo is never heard of him before.

UltraViolet said...

Cute little moment from Jake/Duncan/Michelle's Apple store appearance. At this point, I'd take Jake as Pac Man!

UltraViolet said...

Mary, Vincent Gallo is an indie actor/writer/director who is infamous for making a movie in which Chloe Sevigny gave him a real blow job on camera.

Anonymous said...

When did Jake have an entourage..?

Anonymous said...

From twitter:
Apparently, Jake Gyllenhaal is drinking over at Shotwell's right now (20th & Shotwell, in the Mission) ...

UltraViolet said...

Looks like Jake will be traveling again this week:

Jake Gyllenhaal's come a long way since his "Bubble Boy" days a decade ago -- especially when it comes to on-screen Vegas visits.

Playing the wrapped-in-plastic title role 10 years ago, Gyllenhaal took a neon-nights cruise down the Strip on the back of Danny Trejo's motorcycle.

This week, the all-grown-up Gyllenhaal returns to the Strip for the gritty cop drama "End of Watch," from writer-director David Ayer (whose credits range from "Training Day" screenwriter to "Street Kings" director).

"End of Watch" is expected to end principal production Tuesday in L.A. -- which makes sense, considering the movie focuses on the partnership, and friendship, between two L.A. police officers. They're played by Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, who's reportedly not making the trek to Caesars Palace later this week. Watch for "End of Watch" in theaters next year.

Hmm, quickie wedding for Jake and Anna's characters, perhaps? I have no idea. I like it that the filming keeps surprising me. Hope the movie will, too.

Sag Actor said...

The name of that infamous Gallo movie was called Brown Bunny, he seemed to fall off the map after that.

Thanks for posting the Zodiac video, it new to me. Ruffalo and Fincher were a bit much I agree, wish RDJ was interviewed too.

It will be interesting to see what they will be filming in LV.

Delaware was spared the brunt of the hurricane but there was a lot of flooding. Glad to see that everyone here was safe.

Cathy E said...

Isn't Nelly Castillo lovely. Looking forward to EoW.

bobbyanna said...

Jake in Vegas! That's definitely something you don't see very often...if ever. : ) You know, I recall weeks ago, I think, seeing Anna Kendricks and some of her girl friends in Vegas partying. I'm wondering now, if you're right about the Vegas wedding idea, UV.

Irene sure left a mess, SAG Actor.

Josie said...

Love the New/Old Zodiac video UV, this film is Fincher's masterpiece IMO.

Too bad they didn't get to interview Robert.

Love hearing about Jen and the pic of Jake and Jen never gets old:)

Sounds like Jake had a blast in SF, and I feel the same about Gallo aas everyone else here , ugh.

Jake in Viva Las Vegas! I'm really loving EOW's shooting schedule.

Forgot to mention how much I love the pics of Jake, Alice and the kids for the Edible School project!!

Goodnight Irene! It didn't effect me at all but I have relatives on Long Island and they lost power and their basements were flooded:(

mary said...

yea we dont hear of Jake being in LAS VEGAS sounds like EOW is almost done filming

Monica said...

Remembered: Vincent Gallo fired Kirsten Dunst from The Brown Bunny!

Tweety said...

For real Monica?? I would think she would have quit just from reading the script!

I think the only reason Chloe took the role was because she was dating Gallo at the time.

UltraViolet said...

Man, for being so close to Silicon Valley, news moves slwoly in Berkely. I guess the hippie side wins over techie!

Most of the stories about the anniversary of Chez Panisse cover the Friday night party and Saturday afternoon's museum event. Not much on the private dinners at all. Probably the plan, but you'd think some gossip would eke out!

Also, there was a super sixties parade of Berkeley students and former employees of the restaurant, wearing beekeeping gear, gardening apparel, and various kooky headdresses of flora and fauna. And though there were no Jake Gyllenhaal sightings that evening (Friday - ed), we hear he was in town and escorting Alice through various parts of the event-filled weekend.

UltraViolet said...

Nelly is lovely, Cathy!

I did not know that about Kirsten Dunst and Brown Bunny, Monica. Was it for the Chloe Sevigny part? Yikes.

I saw a whole bunch of Jake tweets and wondered what happened, but it's just the silly 20 People I'd Marry meme.

Monica said...

I still think Jake would like to work again with David Fincher, but despite my hopes that this will happen, I don't see that happening anytime soon. I hope I'm wrong.

It seems that Dunst did not appear to film a scene and her agent called him. But he refuses to talk to agents, so ... also said that the woman was a lunatic.

Monica said...

Posted on Saturday on facebook:
Is playing Jake Gyllenhaal's brother in End of Watch

UltraViolet said...

I hope they'll work together again. I just think it's a shame that Jake has been forced to censor himself.

I'm going to have to check out that Kirsten story!

New post.
