Happy New Year!

I hacked into another (totally public) Facebook account and found this great new photo of Jake, posted by photographer Richard D. Cole. Don't know where it's from or why it was taken, but there it is.

I didn't manage a year-end retrospective, but I think the whole Bear Grylls Iceland adventure was my favorite Jake story of the year. This was definitely my favorite post. But the whole ride was a blast, from the first news of it until the hilarious, excited tweets that erupted when the special aired.

It was wonderful to watch Jake's progress through nervousness, excitement, apprehension and fear to sheer joy. His sense of adventure and zeal for life were inspiring. And as you remember, it was the GIFt that kept on giving:

Monica reminded me of the Railroad Revival Tour, another unexpected treat for JAke fans and for Jake himself:

Please feel free to share your favorite Jake moment(s) from 2011.

Finally, I hope everyone has a celebratory night and a happy, healthy new year. Thank you to all for another fun Gyllenyear.

I'm going to steal from Paula C's post, which says it all:

Happy new days
Happy new dreams
Happy New Year!

Update: Jake snapped with Edible Schoolyard founder Alice Waters and some of the kids in the program:

Jake Gyllenhaal was one of several stars on a WWE special Tribute To The Troops". Jake taped a holiday message of thanks and good wishes. Messages from Nicole Kidman, Robin Williams, Bradley Cooper and McBongo, among others, were shown.

This autograph hunter seemed to catch Jake and some WWE types and other celebs on November 26, near the Millennium Broadway Hotel in NYC.

Hot and cold

NYC pap pics of Jake Gyllenhaal have been rare this fall, but he was snapped yesterday. Looks like Jake dressed for winter then de-layered.

Some new old photos found around the inter webs. I've never seen this one from the Jake/Paul Bettany photoshoot. Do we know why they were even in a photoshoot to begin with? I assume it was when Kirsten Dunst and Paul shooting.

I just like this composition:
