Sign of old times

Fastest post update ever: Video and story from the Q&A done by Scott Feinberg last month:


Jake Gyllenhaal with Zodiac producer Brad Fischer and author Robert Graysmith, posted on his Facebook page. Two incredible guys and one of the greatest experiences of my life. We've seen a similar photo before:
Jake and RDJ peeking through:
In this MTV interview, Jake talks about the movie; Robert Graysmith and Chloe Sevigny talk about Jake: There are more videos at MTV, as well. Jake appeared on Saturday Night Live in January, 2007 to promote Zodiac, which had been scheduled for a January release. (It was delayed.) The Shins performed, and Anita Robinson sang back up with the Shins. This photo was just posted:
The Robinson Sandwich. Anita kept her cool better than I did. ;) — with Anita Robinson and Jake Gyllenhaal at Saturday Night Live. seconds before this pic I whispered, "you brokeback my heart mr. darko," then goosed him. click. his expression says it all. pretty rad guy actually.
Jake talks about Anna Kendrick how she balanced the group in the movie and on the set.

Jake to appear at:

a free performance for the military and their families Nov. 11 at 8 PM at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

The evening will feature the talents of F. Murray Abraham, Francois Battiste, Marylouise Burke, Adam Driver, Jake Gyllenhaal, Frances McDormand, Michael Shannon, David Strathairn, Tracie Thoms, Joanne Tucker and musical guest Michael Daves.

Attendees can expect to enjoy staged readings of select monologues from contemporary American plays.

Arts in the Armed Forces was co-founded by Joanne Tucker and Adam Driver to "bridge the gap between the military and the performing arts communities by producing a series of free performances of monologues, scenes, staged readings and music, for a mixed military and civilian audience."

Backhanded compliment from Esquire UK:

Three Hollywood Stars Who’ve Finally Come Good

2. Jake Gyllenhaal

There’s always been something likeable about Jake Gyllenhaal. Those sleepy eyes, that laid-back manner, that sister. And while he hit the ground running with his breakthrough role in Donnie Darko and subsequent hits Brokeback Mountain and Jarhead, he also did his best to undo it all in fake-tan CGI horror fest Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. This month, he appears alongside Michael Peña in subtle cop movie End of Watch as LAPD officers whose days are divided between frenetic drug busts and stretches of patrol car banter. After that he’s in Nailed, about a small-town waitress with a nail lodged in her head. We’re intrigued.


Either that's lazy reporting or Esquire knows something we don't know about Nailed.

So many wonderful things in that interview - loved the children's book analogy, the story about Maggie seeing EoW, finally hearing the story behind the fight with Michael. Really great.

Some play tweets:

bobbyanna said...

Good job! Jake joking about Inside the Actors Studio, gave me hope!: ) Lots of interesting tidbits in that interview. I LOL'd when Jake said Natalie Martinez's lines were improvised in the wedding scene.

The question about balancing work and family,was interesting. From other comments, we know he's very close to faimly. But it also made me think, that yes, he comes from a famly of filmmakers, but there's a very unpretentious, down to earth quality about Jake that's authentic to me.

I think his sense of family, even the way he treats his friendships, keeps him grounded. He can go thru all the red carpets, the awards season craziness, and still know who he is and be who he is. He's not impressed with the artificial. That comes thru in this interview.

I'm sad I "wasted" the Zodiac post on a day when we're getting such good stuff. Jake and Michael in the Guardian.

Seemingly done by the same reporter who did the Esquire Singapore article but not, there is some other good stuff in the article.

Extra said...

So much interesting stuff in that interview, and this post was not "wasted" UV, lots of goodies and great finds!

Zodiac is one of my fav. Jake movies!

So glad that the election is over and thrilled with the outcome!

UltraViolet said...

It's always feast or famine with Jake, Extra! But the feasts have been even more bountiful lately!

Also, Hagen, forgot to say thanks. I posted that above, too. Looks like a great night of theater. Wish I lived in NY for that.

Speaking of which: all good thoughts to NYers and NJites and other folks who got slammed by snow after the hurricane!

bobbyanna said...

UV, that MTV-Zodiac video doesn't work for me. It says "no longer available."

UltraViolet said...

That's so weird. Maybe too many of us were clicking on it? Why would they have it up for five years and then take it down today?

Also, why does Blogger not want to recognize any of my line breaks?

UltraViolet said...

From an interesting interview with Michael Pena:

YOU SHOT IN SOUTH CENTRAL LA NEIGHBOURHOODS. WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?
We had bullet-proof vests on all the time. Cops get shot at all the time in South Central so somebody doing a movie about cops? They’re not gonna care. What was weird though was seeing the paparazzi because they follow Jake anywhere. That was so odd. Paparazzi are insane in LA, they just don’t give a rat’s ass! There’s a bunch of gangsters and then you’ll see a long lens through the gangsters: “Can you move to the right, please?... Jake! Jake! Jake! Love you, Jake!” They’ll do anything for a shot! They actually started paying people a hundred bucks so they could be on their roof if they knew we were going to be shooting.

UltraViolet said...

I did find it a little frustrating that Scott Feinberg didn't bring up anything negative regarding Jake's career: I wish someone would ask him about PoP or about some movies not working the way he hoped.

I wish Jake were the "go-to" guy in Hollywood. He should be, but he's not.

Also, I wish Jake could feel comfortable talking about the time in his life when he did have to work around kids' schedules. I'm not saying he should talk about Reese and her children in detail. But when he speaks in such vague generalities, everything is too theoretical.

I understand why he is reluctant, but the parts of the interview where he uses real examples are so much more engaging and interesting.

Also, that is so weird. I swear I checked that 5:01 link and it was one of those black and white photos from the Details shoot. But it is now a very nasty link. Deleted.

Chica said...

The post contains some oldies but goodies! I agree UV, not only PoP but films like LAOD and Rendition had to have been disappointments as far as critical reception and BO is concerned.

I can understand him wanting to avoid talking about his time with Reese but it would have added to the interview if he did.

I really enjoyed this interview. I had not stopped to think that Jake already has 21-year career, which I consider one of the best of Hollywood, since he acted in many good movies and masterpieces such as Brokeback and Zodiac.
I like what he talks about his family. It is so beautiful that feeling of union with Maggie and with his mother and Peter.

Thanks for the link to The Guardian.

I hope Jake go participate in roundtables at The Hollywood Reporter. It would be nice to see him with other actors.

Maria Bello is a great actress. This is a great cast.

Jake sure does love his ABC Kitchen. It was fun to read about the Jon Mayer hug! I like Jon Mayer, too. He often sticks his foot in his mouth right up to the knee! LOL! But he makes good music : )

Maria Bello's a good choice for Prisoners. She's a strong actor. The casting is really filling out nicely. Paul Dano I can take or leave.

Mary said...

Saw Skyfall last night didnt realize that Sam Mendes was the director.By the way it was a great movie really action packed.

Anonymous said...

Yes POP wasn't a real hit, but it did well world wide. Don't think Jake would think the work he did on it was some lost cause.
Also every actor has had a movie (or more) that has not done well. To think because of POP then his career would be undone, is silly. If that was so there would be no actors and actresses left.
He and John Mayer - something in common - songs written about them from Taylor Swift.
Through all the Reese stuff - being bombarded by "her side" rather from real comments from those around her or some made up things he Never commented about it.
Only thing i've seen is saying he had known some extraordinary women in his life.
Everyone guessing and mostly right about TS songs about him - he has not said anything. Even if someone ask I bet he doesn't say much or anything at all. Maybe someday he may talk about them, but don't feel it would be for quite a while, and then no detail.
He has been a gentleman through all of this.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Jake will be on SNL again when there is a movie that comes close to being out when the show is Live. Summer is out and so just depends on fall and winter releases.
Think Andy S. mentioned he enjoyed having him on the show and someone else connected to the show place him as one of the favorites.

I thought the THS interview was great. Jake spoke about how important family was, nothing was more important (this was in response the guy who asked him how he balanced work and family) He also said ask him that same question in a couple of years. I take that to mean he'll probably be married and have kids by then and then it won't be just his sister, mother he'll be talking about. (wife and kids)

Anonymous said...

Jake had a relationship with Reese Witherspoon for almost three years. It doesn't compare with going out with Taylor a few times for less than three months. I don't think Jake pays any attention to all this Taylor nonsense. He is just doing his own thing, and focusing on his own life.

Anonymous said...

The woman is NOT the actor’s “new girlfriend.”

A source close to Gyllenhaal tells Gossip Cop that “she’s a long-time friend,” and adds that there’s “nothing romantic there.”

Why would he be walking arounds the East Village holding the hand of a long time friend?

And we all know that Jake's people never respond to stuff like this let alone, a BS site called Gossip Cop which claims to clarify fake gossip, And on a Saturday!

Meanwhile they take Perez to task for reporting it and yet JJ,the Huffington post and Us are reporting the same thing.

The site is BS and has no connections to any of the stars "people" who has better things to do rhan to respond to a cheesey gossip site.

UltraViolet said...

Oy. We don't have any idea what was going on, so we can't really get too exercised about it. Gossip Cop is a good idea, but he doesn't seem all that consistent or even knowledgeable at times. I doubt Jake's people had anything to do with it. They'd have to actually pay attention to Jake's online presence for that to happen!

Did anyone watch SNL? It was a pretty disappointing episode, though the opening monologue/number was good. As were Anne H's Katie Holmes and Claire Danes impersonations.

But for a show after the election, the political stuff was spotty and nowhere near as much as prevalent as it should have been. After being one of the players in the 208 elections, SNL was pretty irrelevant this year. (And yes, I know Sarah Palin/Tina Fey was a major reason last time around.)

Monica said...

sorry, I thought that Gossip Cop is always correct!

UltraViolet said...

He might be correct, Monica. He has debunked a lot of silly stories about Jake, which is great. But his insider sources tend to seem like synonyms for common sense.

But even if he's correct, and this was just a picture of Jake and a friend playing around, what's the big deal? Jake's not the head of the CIA. And I don't think it was a set up.

UltraViolet said...

I do agree that his PR team should just ignore it. But it doesn't really matter: It will become part of gossip lore, like the expensive bracelet and flying TS to London, etc. Gossip Cop debunked all of that but people still think it all happened.

Monica said...

and taylor swift still doing these stories seem real in her songs, wearing the bracelet in one of the clips. hahaha

REALLY, YOU GUYS? GROW UP.

I absolutely love Jake, please don't stoop to Taylor fans' level and start bashing her here.

Her album RED has tons of great songs about Jake and, based off that album, he seemed like a really great guy. Don't act like she drug his name through the mud because she didn't.

Lastly, that was a long time ago so we shouldn't even be talking about Taylor Swift at all.

It's time for all of you guys to move on.

I expected better from Gyllenbabble

Margot said...

On another note: I do like the new pictures of him with his new girlfriend. I hope they're happy :)

Does anyone know who she is?

Viv said...

Didn't she use Jake's pic in her MTV??

She is the one who can't let it go.And sorry for you TS fans, her songs sounds all the same for me and the lyrics is like a 12-year-old girl diary.I love music, but her songs are not for me to be honest.If you want us to grow up,please tell Taylor grow up first.She is not 16 anymore.

Jake just can't get rid of TS PR crap(I really want him to).I am really happy he is having play right now and he is busy preparing his new movies.At least I can focus on them, not tons of ridiculous Taylor Swift love story articles.

Sorry,UV,if this is inappropriate, please delete it.

Monica said...

great songs?

The songs are shameful and make him look childish, stupid, insecure (he hated heels)...

Rachel said...

(he hated heels)...

I thought she wrote that she could wear heels again. Nothing about anyone else hating them. Perhaps it was a personal choice Taylor made without anyone else's influence.

UltraViolet said...

It's definitely been interpreted that Jake didn't want her to wear heels. Not that there's a single iota of evidence to back it up. But as we know, that doesn't matter.

And "Margot," if you knew anything about this place, you'd know that we usually don't discuss Taylor Swift. You're right that no one should be talking about their relationship, but you might want to tell TS that.

We don't need you to tell us what to talk about or why. No one cares what you expect from us, as no one knows who you are. No one believes you're really a Jake fan or a GBer.

bobbyanna said...

I've never been a fan of her "music" altho some of the greatest "hits" are unavoidable, and I don't play the guessing games, or study the lyrics. They're dishonest, deliberately designed to get attention and achieve commercial success, and they're insipid.

I don't care about her, and I don't care about her idea of music. At first I was just ambivalent, but the more she trashes Jake directly & indirectly, just to promote herself, I have come to dislike her. Very much.

She's a marketing phenomenon, IMO, relentless, wildly successful, and emblematic of how absurd certain aspects of popular culture can seem to some of us. But that's just me.; )

As for the Gossip Cop item, UV I had to LOL!

"...what's the big deal? Jake's not the head of the CIA. And I don't think it was a set up."

Agree!

Recently I read that "Skyfall" and "Jarhead" not only have the same director, but also the same cinematographer (Roger Deakins). Visually "Jarhead" is my favorite movie with Jake.

I still prefer "Casino Royale" to "Skyfall", but I enjoyed it quite a lot. And I saw an EoW trailer before "Skyfall". :)

Neither photo link works for me. I do see a photo of Jake and the tweeter dressed as groomsmen. The tweeter is a friend of Marcus Mumford's, so it could be a photo of Jake at the wedding, even though it looks photoshopped.

I saw Skyfall yesterday, too. I liked it, but it sort of falls apart at the end. And I was displeased by one major plot point.

Javier Bardem was good. I don't think it's Oscar-worthy, but I know a lot of people agree with you, Monica.

I saw end of watch, it's a good movie, mainly because of the great chemistry between Jake and Michael. The scenes of them together are so much fun.

Deakins has nine Oscar nominations and zero wins. He once again did a great job in Skyfall.
