Familiar faces




Back in New York and without the beard: Jake Gyllenhaal takes a walk with his mother, Naomi Foner, on the set of her movie, Very Good Girls. Nice to see stubbly, smiley Jake, even if he wasn't completely thrilled to be seen.





Jake should have worn the camo instead of tying it around his waist if he wanted to avoid the paps!




As I mentioned in the comments on the last post, Naomi's movie has a composer: Musician Jenny Lewis will score another Gyllenhaal.




Jake with a couple of the actors from the movie, Dakota Fanning and Boyd Holbrook:





New stills released for End of Watch. More at IHJ:

Thanks UV nice to see Jake with out the beard at least for a little while.

Wonder if he will be clean shaven for the play?

UltraViolet said...

You're most welcome, Mary. I added a couple of new EoW stills, as well.

One of many important questions about the play! I guess we'll know soon enough.

bobbyanna said...

Well, hello, Gorgeous! : ) Looks like his mother was having a good laugh.

Yeah, UV, I got the "scores" thing.: )

I love these stills from EoW. I like AnnaK.

We've had stormy weather, but it's still muggy out.

It's nice to see Jake come out and support his mom and her movie. He looks great.

New movie??

Mobster: A Call for the New Order

imdb

Imdb is not reliable .... I never heard about it! WTF?

Anonymous said...

I wish they would do a reboot or another sequel to the Godfather because Jake reminds me of Al P. He could be the grandson who took the other road.

Monica said...

I agree that Jake looks like Al Pacino, especially in Rendition!

bobbyanna said...

Definitely. And rememberthose black & white photos of Jake in a tux? he was seriously channeling a young Al Pacino.

Don't know what to make of the imdb posting. I'm not going for it...yet.: )

Anonymous said...

Wow he is actually color co-ordinated from head to toe. The untied shoes go with the outfit. Without facial hair, for some reason Jake looks more buff or the attention is drawn away from that body due to the facial hair but he looks hot and matinee idol ready. Although the hottie blonde guy drew my attention away.

UltraViolet said...

That was posted on Facebook by one of the actors also supposedly cast. As bobbyanna said, grain of salt needed.

Thanks for getting my joke, even through the autocorrect, bobbyanna!

Hottie blonde guy was hot. And young.

His name is Boyd Holbrook.

Agree, he's hot!

UltraViolet said...

Just added some new, unclose and really great Jake pics that were added to IHJ. Also, apparently that blonde guy is actor Boyd Holbrook, who's in the movie. And he's only a year younger than Jake. There are also some pics with Dakota Fanning in the set.

UltraViolet said...

Thanks, Monica!

Goodness that man is hot, thank you Mrs. Gyllenhaal and Mr. Gyllenhaal. A really nice production, a sequel couldn't do it justice.

bobbyanna said...

LOL! Anon, I wouldn't mind a sequel if Jake was directly involved in the production, but I agree, Stephen G & Naomi Foner did a spectacular job. : )

Anonymous said...

Thanks for supplying the name of the actor. Boyd Holbrook, I never heard of him but he caught my eye :D

Just saw a screening of 'End Of Watch'. All I can say is: Wow! Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña killed it. Great movie.

Chica said...

Well hello gorgeous, I almost didn't recognize him! Love that he is visiting his Mom's movie set. Is this the movie that Peter was supposed to be in as well or am i remembering wrong?

That new movie rumor sounds exciting and he was channeling Al Pacino circa The Godfather in those b&w pics Bobbyanna, that was one of my favorite shoots.

Paula C. said...

Yeahh, that´s the way I like it, but I have a feeling it won´t last long, the beard is coming back soon.

He seems genuinely happy and proud to be on set with his mother.

The blond guy is hot, I never heard of him , but he kind of looks like Ryan Gosling.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

He's looking good here:) I'm so happy that his Mom finally got her film off the ground, it must be exciting to direct her first movie.

That new movie sounds awesome, I can see Jake playing the part. Let's hope it's not just another rumor.

bobbyanna said...

Found this on FB from an actor named Charlie Heydt
"Its official...I booked a role in a movie starring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Micky Rourke and Andy Garcia....Holy Toledo Batman!"

Still feel uncertain. Wish we could get better confirmation. I hate it that Jake never announces his projects. Seems like his agency should do that. I'm not doubting the movie, necessarily, just whether or not he's actually involved.

(Gosh, I just love looking at these photos of beardless Jake. : ) )

Monica said...

I spoke with Jeff from the Variety and he told me that he doesn't know nothing about this movie.

Anonymous said...

Hope all my fellow Gyllenhaalics are enjoying their summer and keeping cool!

My, my he sure looks yummy! I don't mind the beard so much but you can see his beautiful face beardless!

Love the set pics from his Mom's movie, so glad that she finally got financing for it.

That new movie project sounds promising, I have my fingers crossed that it's true.

Thanks so much UV and everyone else for all the updates!!

Video of Jake from on the set the Very Good Girls.

bobbyanna said...

Thanks, monica. I'm not surprised. The writer/director has a very "thin" resume, and Eternal Minds Productions also has a very thin resume.


Charlie Heydt's enthusiastic
FB post might be credible. For him. I still have my doubts. Guys like Andy Garcia, Michael Rourke, and Jake have solid management teams and agents. They might just be on a casting "wish list" from an aspiring filmmaker.
Which is fine. But I'm not getting my hopes up that Jake's participation is real.

Got further confirmation today that END OF WATCH is one helluva movie. Can't wait to see it.

Daniela said...

Hi! : D
How good to see this happy face and clean or almost clean lol

Mary said...

Stephanie has pics of Jake taken today guess he was visiting his mother again on set

Wonder whats up with the one pant leg up?

UltraViolet said...

Sometimes bike riders roll one pant leg up, Mary. I think that's what's going on.

There are also some more photos from yesterday at IHJ. Thanks to Naomi for filming where visitors to the set can be seen :)

This was posted on GyllenCrazy a few days ago:

My daughter Alexis worked with Jake on the “An Enemy” set last Tuesday. She tells me he’s an extremely pleasant and down to earth guy who went out of his way to advise her on her scenes and also showed an interest in her own life in Toronto.

I love hearing things like that. So glad the woman posted about it.

And from twitter, today:

aw jake gyllenhaal at lunch today .. He looks even better in person ...

And a follow up to the tweet Monica posted from the Variety guy:

Jeff Sneider ‏@TheInSneider
I may or may not have been the source for that sentiment... but due to social media guidelines can't say before our review hits

Steven Weintraub ‏@colliderfrosty
@Variety_JLD it is. saw it.


And this is funny.

Liked watching the video from the set, even if nothing really happens. Thanks, anon.

OT: I am shocked by the news from Colorado. What a horrible tragedy.

Mary said...

Terrible news about the shooting in Co.

bobbyanna said...

Yes, monica, it was horrible.
Very sick young man. Too much access to guns.


Thanks,UV it's always great to hear good things about Jake.

Hmmm. Didn't know that about cyclists and their pants. : )

Rachel said...

All the bike messengers in my city sport this look, if they're not wearing a clip. But mostly they just roll up their right pants leg.

What a terrible night in Colorado. Just horrific. There's some great coverage out there. The Huffington Post has a feature about how the story unfolded on twitter:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/aurora-shooting-twitter-batman_n_1688821.html

And the poignant blog of one of the victims. She had narrowly escaped a Toronto shooting a few weeks back:

Chica said...

I am stunned and saddened on what happened in Colordo, what a tragedy.

Thanks for that link UV,I heard about her.

bobbyanna said...

More & more information coming out. What a terrible, horrible event. I am praying for all those affected.

What horrible news and a nightmare. Those poor people and their families, my thoughts and prayers are with them.

Jake and Peter to appear in wellness video:

"Be Well Week; Be Well Weekend," which premiered on YouTube this week, is the first of the series and features US television show Salon Takeover star Tabitha Coffey discussing her gluten allergy and sharing a chia seed pudding recipe, while Lipman dispenses practical advice about gluten-free living.

Future guests include Peter Sarsgaard and Jake Gyllenhaal, who will also swap recipes and testimonials in a six- or seven-minute segment.

"We'll cover sleep, sun, sex, supplements, cosmetics, yoga, toxicity -- anything I feel is relevant and can make a difference in people's lives," Lipman says.

Lipman, a self-described "health evangelist" whose client roster includes the likes of Kevin Bacon and Gwyneth Paltrow, regularly contributes to The Huffington Post and Goop, and actively blogs about what integrative medicine -- a combination of diet, detox, yoga, meditation, and treatments such as acupunture, for example -- can do.


There's a preview of Peter available.

A few more photos of Jake on set added on IHJ.

From someone else:

She seems to work at Milk Studios, a photography studio.

Went outside to get a falafel sandwich this afternoon and who walks right past my door? Jake Gyllenhaal.

Sag Actor said...

Awful, awful news. I really am at a loss.

No way that i'm seeing the TDKR this weekend, too painful

Sad said...

I actual feel bad for Chris Nolan, its not fair that a movie that so many people have been looking forward to as been used as a platform for horrific violence. I keep seeing on the net the "Batman movie killings".

But then again, something like this reminds us it just a movie.

Spotted: Jake Gyllenhaal on a date in Nolita. He's cute. :)

There was a screening of EoW tonight in LA, with David Ayer and Michael Pena in attendance. And this review from a 16-year-old youtube movie reviewer:

END OF WATCH- Gyllenhal and Pena make for an impeccable pairing. Extremely grim, with stunning attention to realism. September 21st, 2012.

Not sure about that date, but the review is good. I wonder if they should move it a week, away from Looper. Dredd opens the 21st. No idea about its box office potential.

This is funny, from FB:

Why does Jake Gyllenhaal keep calling me? It's just not his turn to take a celeb pic with me yet!
4 hours ago

true story...sat next to him in 1st class from Charlotte to LAX. We played the stare game, but he didn't know the rules...so I just played...for like 5 hours. best 5 hours of my life. He watched Casa Blanca on his ipad and prob texted Reese (his then GF). ohhh....Mr. Gyllenhaal. love that man!


From twitter, another Milk Studios sighting, I think:

Made eye contact with Jake Gylenhall this morning. Ahh
1:12 PM - 20 Jul 12


I wonder what he was shooting there.

From tonight:

Spotted: Jake Gyllenhall in Lower east side
10:30 PM - 20 Jul 12

My pug definitely just sat on Jake Gyllenhaal's feet #AwkwardApology
11:06 PM - 20 Jul 12


Aww, a pug. I don't think Jake minded.

Finally, this made me laugh:

My son saw a shirtless pic of JakeGyllenhaal that posted on my FB page & shouted Dada.

UltraViolet said...

An account of Jake's troubles with security at the airport in Toronto from the guy who tweeted about it.

Starts at about 17 minutes and goes for about five minutes.

bobbyanna said...

Aww, poor Jake! LOL! According to this guy, seems like maybe Jake thought his regular weekly commuting made him familiar enough not to have to go thru security at that smaller airport in TO. It's certainly more interesting than saying, "I saw Jake G at the airport. He seemed nice."

I think the link to that pic that Vic posted is from last week, when they met in NY. Either that, or they like wearing the exact same clothes when they meet :-)

Except that Jake had a beard that last time. ;-)

It looks like the same girl he was with recently, though he was wearing that beard.

Now I'm glad we can see how happy he is. I like the clean shaven look. I wonder who the girl is. I wonder if she is in the industry or not. I don't recognize her.

I'm going to go and finish watching The Dark Knight, they are showing it on TNT. I just love Heath as the joker. I wonder if Jake ever got to see it?

Hagen said...

Very nice new pictures on "I heart Jake". We finally get to see Jake's bike (and his busy tongue).

Anonymous said...

I loved the pics of Jake and his bike, and his tongue. I was wondering if he has anything to do with the production of this movie or is helping his mom. From the pics he looks like he is doing more than observing he looks like he and his mom have their heads together and are conferring on the movie.

UltraViolet said...

Looks like it, bobbyanna.

Those are nice photos, Hagen. And I love the smile in the instagram shot.

Lily, it's hard to tell but I doubt Jake is anything more than a visitor. I'm sure Naomi would appreciate his insights, but this is her show.

Monica said...

but this is her show.

same thought. In these photos you can see the director Cary Fukunaga.

On IMDB it says Naomi is directing the movie (and wrote it)

I think Monica meant a director, not the director of the movie :)
