Let's talk about Jake!
Timely, topical and totally unverified information about Jake Gyllenhaal
Timely, topical and totally unverified information about Jake Gyllenhaal
I think Jake's new look works better in context than it seemed to in stills or in that on-set interview. It's all very clenched, however!We are going to need An Enemy after that, to see JAke let loose a little. (I assume at least one of the Jakes will get a chance to be less intense.)
I forgot to comment on the actual trailer. It's been very well received, and I can see why. Very intense, dark. I like the look of it. You can tell Villeneuve has a style, an eye.Some interesting comments on the Indie Wire (I think) story. I have had this fear about An Enemy, that the reason it hasn't sold or gotten a release date is that it is problematic. I hope we get to see.PAT How exciting! Denis Villeneuve is one of Canada's best talents. Hope he delivers with this strong cast! (His other Gyllenhaal film, An Enemy, doesn't really work, so I'm rooting for a return to form...)IN THE KNOW | MAY 30, 2013 8:53 PMHave you seen "An Enemy"? No, you didn't cause it didn't have ANY public screening, only a Canadian test screening before it was completed, no musical score, no definitive scenes. "An Enemy" is preparing for a Venice film festival presence, where movies have to be world premieres with NO public screening - it's the rule. So no, you didn't see "An Enemy", you're just talking shit.PAT | MAY 30, 2013 9:09 PMWell, it was a test screening, but it did have a score, etc. It didn't work in the cut I saw, but I acknowledge that it was not a final cut, so I am hoping for improvement... I'm not 'talking shit', just expressing an opinion. Good on it if its preparing for Venice... I'm a huge fan of Villeneuve and would like to see the film do well.Would be great to see it in Venice.A fun Jake blast from the past.
Oh my this trailer was so awesome,and a fantastic cast. can not wait to see this movie. I just hope that I can see in the movie theater here in Norway because Source code i must to wait to see in DVD. It was very dark and super-tense just how i like it.UV, thanks for the new post
Yaay! Great post! I'm expecting An Enemy to show at TIFF, and I hope it makes Venice too. That would be so great.
Oops. Wanted to say Lara how frustrating it must be for you not to be able to enjoy Jake's films when they're released in the cinema, and have to wait for the DVD. (((Lara))).It's only my personal opinion, but I think Jake does some of his best work in Source Code. The scenes set in the pod are very powerful. Really remarkable. Even now when I watch the DVD, in the scenes when he's talking to Vera, I get..verklempt.
Thank you UltraViolet:This explains everything. If Venice rules are world premiers it's why the august release in France was postponed. Venice is august 28-september 7. TIFF is september 5-15. Fingers crossed for both.An Enemy will go to Toronto for sure.Indie Wire think Prisoners will go too.So Jake will have 2 movies at TIFF. Win-win situation. The PAT guy or girl is one opinion. I think An Enemy is intellectual,not for ordinary people excited by action thrillers with fights.Trailer for Prisoners looks good, very grim. Too much Jackman for my taste but Jake's detective is surprising. first scenes he's quiet, brooding, last scenes he's menacing,violent.
Thanks UV, the trailer is very intense. I agree with you Bobbyanna about Jake and SC, its one of his best performances.
Hi Bobbyanna, it´s really frustrating. Was the same thing with LAOD, was just 4 days in the movie theater and I did not have time to see so I saw on DVD too. I was so angry. People here is more interesting in Ryan Gosling. Most of the people just now Jake for his personal life.Source code was a great sci-fi thriller with real suspense and drama. I could see that it was about modified reality and inner space, I think there was points of comparison with Inception.I saw some comments from twitter and FB about Prisioners trailer and they liked a lot. I did not see one negative comment and this is very exciting.
Hi everyone! :)I just saw the trailer on the blog of Monica.Very good! 'S all performances are great trailer.I watched a movie with a similar story, just do not say it, because it was only a couple, and they lay in ambush to catch the killer, but the moment they got the wrong guy.But surely this is better! And that dirty face that appears is the detective?
I just want to share with everyone a happy news: two norwegians directors will make the next Pirates of the Caribbean. They are Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, they make two wonderful movies ( Kon-Tiki og Max Manus) I really recommend you to watch. People here are really very proud of them.http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/kon-tiki-directors-land-pirates-560010
Lara, Kon Tiki is at the small theatre I like to go to for Indie films. The trailer looked good, so I may see it in the coming week before it leaves. : ) (The book was one of my high school reading selections, long,long ago, in another century...!)As I'm think of SC right now, in a way, Jake played two different personalities/characters; one inside the train, the other in the pod.
"The book was one of my high school reading selections, long,long ago, in another century...!"Bobbyanna you are a funny kid! I loved :-)
Yeahh, finally the wait is over.I can see why the trailer was well received, it leaves you wanting for more, I got a David Fincher vibe from the trailer, maybe just because of the genre.Jake was very tense in all of his scenes, very into character and let me praise Hugh for this little bit we saw, he has that pain in his face that only parents can imagine the feeling in case someone took our children.How can someone say a movie doesn´t work when nobody saw it yet, An Enemy will be a hit at Venice, mark my words.
The trailer has been very well received, and I can see why. Very intense, dark. I like the look of it. You can tell Villeneuve has a style, an eye.I like the visual style of the trailer, too. Though I'd rather give Roger Deakins credit for that.Would be great to see it in Venice.Venice would be fine, if the producers feel good about the movie (or maybe they can present the film out of competition). I'm expecting An Enemy to show at TIFFRhombus Media, the Canadian production company behind "An Enemy" advertises "Prisoners" in the news section of its website (retweeted by the Spanish producer). I think they will try to share the limelight with "Prisoners" at TIFF, which makes sense for a smaller movie.Does anyone know if Nightcrawlers landed any distribution deals at Cannes?I haven't read any news about distribution deals on "Nightcrawler", "Mississippi Grind" or "An Enemy" at the film market in Cannes.
Remember when Monica predicted they would show Jackman screaming the hole trailer to create Oscar buzz? She was totally right, LOL.Hi, Daniela, I miss you here!Lara, don´t know how you stand the wait for Source Code, it's amazing.Bobbyanna, you have such a fresh mind for a century old lady!
Wonder if Jake is still in New York? He sure has been invisible a lot, lately.
What's it to you where Jake is? Do you have a date with him? Does he owe you money? LOL
Love the trailer, looks very Oscar-baity for Hugh!I hope An Enemy makes a splash ar Venice.After awhile it becomes a bit mundane to tweet everytime you see an actor wondering around NY especially if he lives there.I know I don't:)
Deven @DevenGrey 3h@DevenGrey: is my mum for real?! 😱😍 just chilling with Jake Gyllenhaal !! #sojealous #takemetoLA pic.twitter.com/21g0aGLQOB
About this twitter:is my mum for real?! 😱😍 just chilling with Jake Gyllenhaal !! #sojealous #takemetoLA pic.twitter.com/21g0aGLQOBdid you learn any breakfast details :-)??apparently he's heading to universal studios and his niece liked my moms shoes! haha! 😁✨ #nothingjuicy #nogossip ! This lady had breakfast at Club Lounge. And this is the answer to Anon 4:07.
I have had this fear about An Enemy, that the reason it hasn't sold or gotten a release date is that it is problematic.I also have this fear, UV. I wish the person had spoken of performances. Sometimes the movie can't be good, but the performances do.Awards Daily News forum did not like the trailer and are saying that they heard the Hugh's Australian accent.
Lara, thanks for following up and getting more details from that tweet. : ) American Airlines has club lounges where their travelers can have a bit of privacy while waiting for a flight.So do many other airlines. Interesting. sounds like maybe Ramona was with him? I too, get curious about Jake when I haven't read any news about him. Sometimes, when there's a long period of time with no sightings it means he may be traveling. I guess I'm a bit anxious for news since Mississippi Grind, Nightcrawler, Into the Woods, and who knows what else may be getting read to start at some point. He could be auditioning with others actors, or in rehearsals or signing up for even more movies! : )
Looks like Now You Seem Me will do pretty well this weekend. It's being panned, but I'm not so sure it would have been a bad thing for Jake to be in it. He's been in enough critical faves that don't make bank.Oh well. Let's hope Prisoners works on both levels.The Awards Daily people apparently are not fans of Hugh, so I'm not too concerned about that.I wish i hadn't read so many of the stories about it, as there is a lot of possibly spoilerish speculation.Daniela, good to see you! I'm not sure of the answer to your question - I'll have to watch the trailer again. But I wondered the same thing.Hugh's accent might be a bit spotty.What I find odd are the connections people are trying to make. The creepy Entertainment Tonight guy tried to connect it to the Cleveland kidnappings, which it doesn't appear similar too at all. The Slate story related it to Guantanamo. I think they may have been trying to be clever or ironic or something. But it was just odd.Hagen, I agree about Roger Deakins. It's a definite plus that he worked on Prisoners. And thanks for the Rhombus info. Fingers crossed, Prisoners helps An Enemy.
Bobbyanna, I really like when you and UV explain where the place is. Thanks Yes, It seems that his niece is with him. And just want to ask: Did you notice that do not have more sightings from Soul cycle. After that article from newspaper the sightings just disappear. I found this today, it is about Heath Ledger. He had a diary that he kept during the filming of The Dark Knight, if somebody want to see, here is the site: http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/05/heath-ledger-secret-diary/
Warner Bros Pictures @wbpictures 12m#JakeGyllenhaal and @RealHughJackman star in #PrisonersMovie. Watch the new trailer: http://youtu.be/2SupordEUpw Wow!While every blog puts Jackman before Jake and some don't mention Jake in the title, Warner Bros Pictures puts Jake first.
Lol, UV. They hate Hugh Jackman.Lara, I remember that this diary was written before filming, during his preparation for Joker.There is so much material that we have not seen. Warner will release a ultimate version of the trilogy. It would be nice to have something new of Ledger.I also think that Focus should launch a new Blu ray of Brokeback Mountain with unreleased material. Brokeback already have eight years. So fast!
UV, I read the Slate article. Quite a stretch. With Incendies, the point I took from the film is the personal human stories and lives affected by other people's actions. It wasn't necessarily about that specific Political situation, but it was political in a broader context. It had a universality that went beyond the immediate. RadarOnline isn't one of my favorite sites. I do miss Heath, and often wish we had more of him. To discover something we haven't seen. That's part of effect of such a loss. When you realize there are no more new photographs, or films. I'm sure there are things his fans haven't yet seen of his movies, and I'd love to see new footage if it exists. But, one of the things that intrigues me is his own photography. I have this impression there must be a treasure trove of photographs he took, and other creative expressions like the videos he directed, and I wish his fans could have access to it.
Isn't Maggie's movie with Channing and Jamie Foxx coming out soon maybe they are all in LA for the premiere. Also Universal Studios could be the theme park.
UV, I also think Jake should have done Now you See It, only if he was the lead. I think they wanted him to play Mark's part, if the story is no good although the overall cast is good why do the part? Mark's role does not seem gritty enough. I could see Jake in Jessie's part.
Scott, I remember that the role of Woody Harrelson was offered to Jake, but other sites say was the role of Ruffalo.
yes, White House Down doesn't open for another full month, but they may be scheduling the premiere in a few weeks. Peter Sarsgaard is filming out west, in Utah. He's doing a horror movie that's also a western. I thought the Now You See Me role was the one the cast Mark Ruffalo for, the detective. Mark plays a lot of detectives. : ) I know it's getting panned, but it looks stylish, and I kind of wish Jake had said yes, too.
I know a spoiler about the movie that made me feel a little better about the role, had Jake taken it.I can post it, but I do not want to spoil the movie for anyone planning to go.Chica: I hope you'd let us know if you saw Jake wandering!
Or is it NY?The best moment of your life is when Jake Gyllenhaal makes eye contact with you on the subway... Yes ladies, dreams come true. #NYC7:57 PM - 31 May 13
It's not about Jake, but I found these developments interesting regarding Jane Got a Gun now that Ewan McGregor's signed on:http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/weinstein-relativity-partner-jane-got-558331
It will be very funny if ewan receive an Oscar nomination for this film.
why funny?because Jake was offered the role and refused?are you amused by the prospect of Jake losing a chance for Oscars? with fans like you Monica he doesn't need enemies - you're doing a great job bashing him.
Anon 9:39 that's a cowardly attack and an undeserved one. I don't appreciate it when people attack other posters with such specious accusations. Yu affect all of us, because it affects the tone of discussions and discourages participation.FYI: Jake wasn't the only one to turn down that role. I don't think Monica's comment was singular reflection on Jake. I posted the article because I thought it was interesting that one moment Jane was floundering and now it looks like Jane is on a roll.Try educating yourself before you attack people. The Jake Gyllenhaal Brasil site that monica runs is one of the best fansites around. Yes, monica, it would be very ironic if, after all the fits and starts, Jane Got a Gun figured in the awards season sweepstakes.
Anon, Monica did not said about jake losing a chance for the Oscar, She is really Jake´s fan. What she said is that so many actors reject the Project that if Ewan receive an Oscar they will regreat a lot. And I agree with her. What i know jake´s name was at list to make a test but the director did not invited him to join the cast, He choose Bradley Cooper.
hahahahahahahahaAnon, I mean it'll be hilarious if he is nominated for an Oscar, because MANY actors refused the role.
I think it would be great for Ewan to get nominated because he seems like a good guy and very good actor with range like Jake. Not a one trick pony. Yes I wish Jake would have taken Jane but he didn't but it seems as if Jake is about to be busy.
Monica tell how is the whether in you beautiful land? Wait for me next year I coming to the World cup. Have a wonderful weekend!Hi Bobbyanna thanks for the link. and by the way have a wonderful weekend you too.Hi Scott, Ewan is a great actor, I love him and I hope one day he can win an Oscar. For me he is perfect: He is Obi Wan kenobi. Oh my I´m a nerd, i know. Great weekend u 2.
You know, "Anon" you're worse than a troll. Sorry if some comments don't meet your standards of enthusiasm, or that you chose to misinterpret them. But as I said earlier, you're a coward and you have a negative attitude. Attacking other posters is pretty infantile, IMO.There's a huge difference between when someone seems pessimistic, trying not to get their hopes up about something because they don't want to be disappointed, and we've all done that, and the negativity you're displaying. The fact that you'd rather lurk in the shadows and attack really invalidates anything you have to say. Maybe you need to find another fansite where you'll be happier. Of course maybe you're only happy when you are stirring things up.
Pretty sure this anon has posted before, Bobbyanna. Never with a name, of course, and never on anything positive.Stop attacking Monica, anon. No one cares what you think of her, of us or of Jake.We know that Monica is a true fan. We know that you are a troll.
Well, let him or her think I'm not a fan of Jake. I don't care.I'm here for years and I am little pessimistic. But I have nothing against people who think positive all the time.Lara, you come to Brazil? Rio de Janeiro? Beautiful beaches.Bradley Cooper liked it! Anne Hathaway too!
Monica, I have been in Rio and almost all north-east. Many carnavals in Salvador and Olinda. Next year I will be maybe Natal or Fortaleza and maybe Rio. I want to eat "Coxinha com guaraná antártica" and "brigadeiro de colher". I know a lot South américa I used to live in Santiago/chile studying Spanish.
I live in the north. Unfortunately I can't eat coxinha com guaraná antarctica. is my favorite soda. I can't eat chocolate and I love chocolate! good that you will return.
Thank you Monica, I´m very exciting to return that´s for sure.
OK, you guys, I found photos of Coxinhas and brigadeiros and they looked delish! But all I can do is look, too. : )
Brigadeiro is so easy to make! Here the recipe for those who want to try.
Brigadeiros are the best, luckily I can eat a lot of them, I love the ones with coconut.Lara you have to eat picanha and drink a fresh coconut water in Rio, god I'm a very jealous. My husband has been telling me that in Oslo it's very hot since Sunday, don´t know if he is only teasing me!!
Bobbyanna i recommend that you try make brigadeiro it´s just Paradise.Thanks for the recipe Monica. I know that is a big art to make a good brigadeiro. I try make here but something happens, when i finish it´s just dissapear from the pan. :-)Paula C it´s really very hot here. do you believe!? miracle happens!!!!! Norway with a hot day. it´s so good. And I have already eaten Picanha and it´s heaven and caipirinha and guaraná....oh so good. I´m start to hungry.:-)
I mean: start to feeling hungry. Sorry.:-)
Never been to Brazil. Someday soon, I hope.Some Jake sightings about town?Did i just shared the cash register at the grocery store with jake gyllenhaal? Yes plsabout an hour ago near New York, NY jake gyllenhaal just smiled at me4:50 PM - 1 Jun 13I love him.He was with this cute girl
Someone watched Now You See Me said Mark's role is the lead. He thought it's an average movie with fun moments.LikeMonalisa
Or maybe he is in LA. Jersey Chairez @ jchair_easyI think I just skated past Jake Gyllenhaal.
Right, or maybe Jake's on a bus in New Jersey,or at a club in D.C. Jake lookalikes are everywhere but where I am.There's more than one sighting of Jake in NYC so it's pretty reliable that's where he is.
"He was with this cute girl"Meltdown by anom in 5,4,3,2.....1lol.. Sorry UV if out of line but it's just so funny how a complete stranger can cause so many to go nuts when he is even seen with a woman. But I am confused as to where Jake is now, LA or NYC?
Hey maybe Jake is in Florida. Two girls met him in a bar.Shana Wheelwright. @TampaProducer.:)
You are funny, Scott!I can't understand either why the anom's in this world bothers so much when Jake is seen with a girl, he is single, gorgeous, funny, talented..did I already say gorgeous? Of course he dates, goes out with girlfriends, doesn´t shave because he doesn´t feel like, etc... What do people think he does when not working, sits on his coach watching judge Judy, please!
Like most of the trailers nowadays this one is a bit too spoilerish for me but it looks like a nail biter. Can't wait till Sept. ! Paula C your little girl is adorable!
"Like most of the trailers nowadays this one is a bit too spoilerish"I wouldn't be taken in by the trailer Extra, Denis V does not seem do the expected no matter what the script that people have read says.
I wouldn't be taken in by the trailer Extra, Denis V does not seem do the expected no matter what the script that people have read says.Gyllencrazy thinks, the trailer isn't too spoilerish: Having read the original script I don’t share the view of those who think that the trailer gives too much of the plot away.Paula C your little girl is adorable!I agree, Sofia is super cute. :-)Paula, it must be tough for your husband to be far away from home.
† faith † @faith_haaf On our way to NYC We just missed our train....In the same train station as Jake GyllenhaalThis Young Lady is from New jersay
† faith † @faith_haaf 1 min Jake Gyllenhaal in the background of me and katelyns selfie. Nbd pic.twitter.com/zSD3gDg20lThey posted a photo, but i´m not sure if that is Jake.
That doesn't look like Jake, if the guy in the white shirt is supposed to Jake. That guy looks less buff and a a bit younger than Jake from what I can see from the glare. I wouild think Jake would wear at least a hat or sunglasses these days.I thought the lady in the American Airlines lounge said Jake and Ramona were going to Universal Stuidos which is in LA both the studio and theme park. But there is a theme park in Florida, this just gets more and more mysterious. Jake has more dopplegangers both famous and non famous than anyone. It could have been Ryan Gosling, Toby Maguire, the Swiss Hockey player from the Detroit Redwings or Aaron Rogers or Paul Ryan.
There have been many comments on various sites that the trailer gives too much away, I don't think so, we see 2 children missing, a desperate father that goes after the man he believes is responsible for it, a detective that has to release the suspect for lack of evidence and the rest doesn´t give the movie away. Villeneuve wouldn´t be so basic, I´m very intrigued by Jake's character, very obscure, that hair slicked back, that neck tattoo and button up shirt gives me a psycho feeling, it has all the right ingredients to a great performance.Hi, Extra, thank you!Hagen, you are so nice, it's been really hard, my husband left when Sofia was 4 months, I´ve cried many nights, I miss him so much, it's hard on me, on him that has to watch his daughter grow on Skype and it´s hard on our son Daniel who is ten and super attached to his father, but Norway is one of the best countries to work in the world and peaceful too, so I feel blessed anyway.Scott, finding Jake is like that game " where's wally?"
Paula, that is tough on everyone. I hope he gets to come home soon. I think Jake is the blurry figure behind the guy in the white shirt. It's a little like an optical illusion, but there is someone there. Can't really tell if it is Jake, but it could be.Quite a few people have said that things are not as they seem and the Prisoners trailer does not give away all the twists. Hope that's true.
Here is another twitter pic from today. Katelyn @Katelyntighe. Jake ?? In white shirt.I am really excited about prisoners. Does anyone know about what is going on with the movie that has Chris pine and Jake in it. Are these two actors now confirmed ?
Looking at that last twitter pic, I think they might be referring to the person with his back to the photo. The one who appears to be standing near the tracks waiting for the train, black pants, back pack, dark t- shirt & cap. Somehow I just don't see Jake in a short sleeved white shirt sitting on a bench with his glasses in his shirt pocket. So that's my 3 cents worth. : ) ((((Paula & family))))I do believe Jake's still in NYC. Usually when he's at an airport even in the VIP lounge thre are multiple sightings. And Ramona & her mother were spotted that same day on the subway. So I think it's mistaken identity. But I always remind myself of that weird Saturday night when a couple of us saw twitter explode with sightings of Jake in a basement listening to a band in Nashville. Out of the blue. LOL!
Does anyone know about what is going on with the movie that has Chris pine and Jake in it. Are these two actors now confirmed ?IMDB (not a reliable source) confirmed Jake and Pine, but I think we will only know when jake talk about it in an interview or when start the filming.the Prisoners trailer does not give away all the twists. Hope that's true.it's true.Today I saw Hangover 3. It's worse than the previous and I didn't know Melissa Mccarthy was in it!
Cami Hertzog @cameronhertzog 10m@Hoesay_Gonzalez Jake Gyllenhaal was ruined for me in journey to the center of the earth.. and Hugh jackman cant sing.. sorry bout itCami Hertzog @cameronhertzog 4m@Hoesay_Gonzalez which movie he made 3 journey to the center of the earths... 3JOSEPJH @Hoesay_Gonzalez 2m@cameronhertzog umm... You do realize Jake Gyllenhaal wasn't even in those right?lolLet's add Brendan Fraser to our list of doppelgangers of Jake.
"Let's add Brendan Fraser to our list of doppelgangers of Jake. lol" Oh no the list keeps growing.
Wow 28 million for Now you See it, it does appear Mark's character was the lead although the trailers and interviews barely had him in them. It seem more like the story was interesting enough to people. Oh well Jake.I see a sequel for this movie, aw Jake it could have been your first sequel.
Hi Everybody, now is the end of the mistery. JAKE IS IN LA. take a look at IHJ.June 2 - Arriving At LAX Airport
Thanks so much Lara! He looks good, I like that scruffy beard, not a fan of the hair pulled back, but I just can´t stand to see that pants and sneakers anymore, my ten year old son wears sneakers just like that.Wonder if his trip to La is work related.Monica, have you read the script of Prisoners?
I have not read, just a few excerpts. But I know who took the children.
Jake used to love to hike in the hills and run and ride his bike. I think Jake must sometimes hunger for the sunny open spaces around Los Angeles. In New York he seems to have many friends and people who are living there, like his family, or passing thru, but in Los Angeles, he can be with nature more. There couldn't be more different lifestyles of New York and L.A.
Spill the beans, Monica!! No, just kidding but you are making me very anxious with that "I know who" story!Anon, I miss seeing Jake in LA running with a tank top and biker shorts and with Atticus by his side, lol.
Noooooooooooooooooooooo Monica, I want to know, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. :-)Hi Paula C, did you see that the paparazzi took one photo just with jake´s sneakers, :-) I think inside he is a big kid, this is good. He is so handsome, he looks like Wolverine's younger brother. Oh dear! I need air....:-)Paula you are Strong woman, I wish that God bless you and your Family today and Always.
Cute baby and Mom, Paula.
Just saw some photographs of the terrible flooding in parts of Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. My thoughts are with all who are affected. Don't know if any of our posters are involved.
Dear Lara, Monica is just going to leave us guessing, hehehe!I notice the zoom photo on those dreadful pants and sneakers, LOl,I miss Jake style when he was promoting LAOD, then he went trough that phase of the kaki pants and never recovered! He has that effect on me too, a shortness of breath!Thanks Scott!
Scott, I hadn't even thought of the sequel possibilities. It really is a shame Jake didn't do this one. He does not seem to make the best choices commercially.Hopefully Prisoners will change that.
I liked his looks for LAOD, but my most favorite Jake look from the recent past, is the way he looked both in Source Code, and then when he was out promoting Source Code. Loved it. I keep wondering if it was a scheduling thing with Now You See Me. Wish he'd have done NYSM.
And hopefully the musical adaption will change too although I am not sure if Jake or Chris will get much kudos if they are confirmed.YOu right UV, Jake does seem to pass on movies that become commercial success, maybe he does it subcousiously. I wish he would have take Jane Got A Gun, it could have been a good move but maybe it was too much like Nailed, everything that could go wrong did. Jake seems to have this bad luck cloud over him when it comes to movies, I hereby vanished that dark cloud.
Oops,I hereby vanquish that dark cloud, remove yourself from Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal's movie choices and offers.
Jake Gyllenhaal joins roster of stars at Tony Awards -- EXCLUSIVEOscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal will be a presenter at this Sunday’s Tony Awards at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, EW has learned.The 32-year-old star made his Off Broadway debut last fall in the drama If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, earning a Lucille Lortel Award nomination as Outstanding Featured Actor. He joins a swelling list of celebs who will appear at Broadway’s premiere awards show, including Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jesse Eisenberg, Jon Cryer, and Martha Plimpton.The 67th Annual Tony Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air on CBS at 8 p.m. on June 9. (Be sure to check out EW’s live blog of the event!)
thanks FP, well we know he will be back in NYC soon. I which he would surprise us and sing at the Tonys, just to give people a taste.I need to get back to work before I get fired.
Thanks, FP! I was wondering if/hoping Jake would be a presenter. Bonus: He can't wear the green pants!
Yay! I waa hoping that he was going to be asked to present.
He does not seem to make the best choices commercially.I wonder, if the potential commercial success of a movie is still a selection criterion for Jake. I don't mind his choice of movies, but I think it's probably not enough to shoot just one small independent movie per year like he did in 2011 and 2012. Hopefully he will get done more movies this year. If he starrs in more films, it doesn't matter that much, if one of them fails. And chances are higher that one of them breaks out, of course.Jake looks good in the new paparazzi pictures, not as pale as Detective Loki. ;) The Russian distributor of "An Enemy" has finally cancelled the release date (September 12th), though it's still on IMDb.com.Paula, I hope your family will get back together in the not too distant future.Just saw some photographs of the terrible flooding in parts of Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. My thoughts are with all who are affected. Don't know if any of our posters are involved.I'm not affected, as I live in Western Germany. My mother spent the past two weeks in a health resort in Southern Germany, which is affected by the flooding, but she has returned today. The flooding is certainly not great at all for those who live there.
Hagen, glad you and your loved ones are safe! It is a terrible situation.I think Jake has chosen projects based on the director, not the commercial prospects, with the exception of PoP. That, I'm not sure why he did.I agree with you wholeheartedly that if he works more, there will be less pressure on each film. And the odds of hitting are greater. But he has been dogged by bad fortune and bad choices. It's a shame.My niece saw Now You See Me and said it was dreadful. And the reviews seem to confirm that. Still, it would have been great for Jake to be in a hit (it made almost $30 million this weekend) and just a fun movie.
UV, this time I'm going to disagree with you on Now you see me, I don't care how much money that movie makes, it's true it has an amazing cast but to me it's just an Ocean's eleven with magic, I´m glad Jake passed this one, but I agree he needs a box office hit, so producers and directors start looking at him for future projects, we all know that talent is not always enough, producers want someone that can bring audiences to movie theaters, but I agree that Jake has been misfortune in some projects, Zodiac had all the right ingredients to be a massive hit, great cast, great script and a great director, but failed at the box office, it was too long, however it's one I'm proud Jake's in, then we have Prince of Persia, who would thought that movie wouldn't work on USA box office, nobody, I liked this one too, we could Cleary see he had fun making it, Source Code is another great example, great movie, did well but not enough to meet a star standard, so it's like you said he's been dogged by bad fortune but not entirely by bad choices and that dreadful movie like your nice said would be one of the bad.I believe that the invitation to present a tony is somehow a recognition of his work in IF there is I haven´t found it yet, it's like welcome to the stage gang!
"I believe that the invitation to present a tony is somehow a recognition of his work in IF there is I haven´t found it yet, it's like welcome to the stage gang!"(waves to Paula C)Oh, I SO agree with you! He's been welcomed with open arms into the theatre community, and his work has been well received. It's no small thing to be nominated for several prestigious awards,even though he didn't win this time out. The nominations were definitely acknowledgement of his work. In this case, I think Jake earned respect by not going directly to a big Broadway show, instead, he worked in a solid production Off Broadway. I get so irritated about PoP because here in 2013, foreign box office for all the big movies is included in measuring their success, and even though PoP earned $335 Million, it's regarded as a flop. We've already exhausted discussions about PoP, and it's weaknesses are evident. My main point is that Jake's misses should not define him. I blame lazy, ineffective PR (!) for the fact that he'stoo often defined by his (mostly imaginary) failures, while other actors seem made of Teflon, even when their box office numbers aren't too great.I agree that, as UV & Paula and others have pointed out, Jake needs to work a lot more. He needs to be aggressive about what he wants, or at least his people need to be more aggressive. I can't think of any other actor of his age, that has so many iconic roles. He is so good, I feel certain he'll enjoy great success if he wants it.
" Jake needs to work a lot more. He needs to be aggressive about what he wants, or at least his people need to be more aggressive." Right, Bobbyanna I'm seeing a shift in that direction you pointed out, he´s boarding in on more projects this year, he needs to focus more, print his mark, a little like Dicaprio that always goes for more layered, intense characters, even if he has a failure at the box office, people look back at his work and say, hey look at what this guy can do!I think he surprised a lot of people and I was one of them with the Time to Dance video, I saw something there that needs to be explored, he got so many positive reactions from that, people asking for more.Hagen, I'm glad you and family are alright, the weather is completely bipolar here in Europe, one week a heat have in the north, next week flooding. Here in Portugal is amazing weather 29 degrees Celsius!
Hope I can watch the Tony's Sunday my cousin from South Carolina is out here on vacatiion so don't if I'll be home to watch so far no plans we are leaving today to go to Hearst Castle and Solvang so I will not be around for a few days.But yes it is a form of recognition to be asked to present at the Tony's so I'm happy for him.
Have a good trip, Mary. I'm sure you'll be able to see Jake's presenting on youtube.Paula, as bobbyanna and you said, we've discussed PoP in all its facets. It bothers me that it gets such a bad rap. But I wish Jake had paid attention to my instincts, lol, and not done it. I try to remember how much I enjoy watching it and forget all the negative impact it has had on Jake's career.From FB:Is it bad then when I waited on jake gyllenhal tonight-all I could think about was Taylor swifts song....we are never ever ever, getting back together....lol — at The Farm Of La Jolla Ave.13 hours ago
The 57th BFI London Film Festival will take place from October 9-20, 2013. "An Enemy" is set to open in the UK on October 18th (it's the only release date left). If the release date holds, it's quite likely that the movie will take part in the festival, just like EoW last year.Jake needs to work a lot more. He needs to be aggressive about what he wants, or at least his people need to be more aggressive.Like Scott recently put it, Jake seems to have adopted a Zen-like attitude. ;) And I tend to agree with her. Obviously he's got artistic ambition as an actor, but probably he feels just fine starring in smaller independent movies (or Off-Broadway productions). In regard to his career he seems to see his future in producing and directing films. Though I think Jake has taken on a difficult task as producer of independent movies like "Mississippi Grind" and "Nightcrawler". In April Steven Soderbergh gave a speech about the state of the movie market: "In 2003, 455 films were released. 275 of those were independent, 180 were studio films. Last year 677 films were released. So you're not imagining things, there are a lot of movies that open every weekend. 549 of those were independent, 128 were studio films. So, a 100% increase in independent films, and a 28% drop in studio films, and yet, ten years ago: Studio market share 69%, last year 76%. You've got fewer studio movies now taking up a bigger piece of the pie and you've got twice as many independent films scrambling for a smaller piece of the pie. That's hard. That's really hard."
Sodebergh is so right. Thanks Hagen. It's always the "art vs commerce" argument. I enjoy the pure entertainment that escapist blockbusters offer. But when investors can get a huge return from an Iron Man, they'd rather not risk losing money. Blockbusters soak up money like a a sponge.Profits from distribution are getting trickier too. The way people watch movies has changed so much with technology, that it's getting harder and harder to predict where profits will come from.
From FB:about an hour agoJust saw Jake Gyllenhaal....gawd love LA!! — with Boris Cavlina.Was he hot in person ?Ohh hell yes!!! Hotter!I keep forgetting to say this, but I saw an ad for E! News over the weekend, and in a teaser for the week's upcoming stories, they said something like: "Jake G comes out of hiding." We'll talk to him and find out where he's been. No idea what that means. But keep an eye out for it.
Good news that he will be one of the presenters of the Tony. I read that Anna Kendrick is also one of the presenters.End of Watch meeting!
Yaay for EoW reunion! Janet & Brian Forevah! LOL! ; ) (Maybe we should call them Cinderella & Prnce Charming : ) )
Jake, Jake where are you? He must be doing early promo for Prisoners, I just wish it would open a little later for Awards consideration, where is An Enemy?
Jake at the Tony Awards is great news. Will make a wonderful presenting pair with Anna Kendrik.New news:TV by the Numbers says Jake will be a presenter at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards:The 2013 “Guys Choice” Awards tapes Saturday, June 8 at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA, and premieres Wednesday, June 12 at 9:00 PM, ET/PT on Spike TV. The network has also confirmed that Jennifer Aniston will be on hand to present Jimmy Kimmel with this year’s “Funniest M.F.” Additionally, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Alba, Snoop Lion, Randy Couture, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Jon Taffer will be on hand to present at this year’s event. So Jake will be inLA til Saturday and fly back to NY on Sunday for the Tonys. Boy,when he's busy he's busy.
ahhh thanks!Henry Cavill and Jake Gyllenhaal at the same party? THUD
"Henry Cavill and Jake Gyllenhaal at the same party? THUD"Did I miss something? Odd Jake is doing promo so early on. Side note, Mrs. Jackman will be on the View co-hosting tomorrow maybe Hugh will pop up.
Yeah, but Hugh is currently promo Wolverine.
josefa ann @robot 3h@quityourjrob nice. Are Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal still potential princes that you know of?Joanna Robinson @quityourjrob 3h@robot they're official.Joanna Robinson: Pajiba Features Editor.
My 2 cents:if Jake starts filming Mississipi G. soon he'll have less time for Prisoners promo, so he's doing all this week. Or it's for Into The Woods. No official Disney confirmation but Emily Blunt confirmed her role in a interview, maybe Jake will do the same. From the twitter posted by Monica,it seems a done deal.
"so he's doing all this week."I respect your opinion but it's awfully early for promo for a film that is not out until late Sept. It's not like he can't do phone or video interviews while on location. He has done it before, maybe its business concerning his other work or new film gigs.
Prisoners is from great studio that started doing the promo for the film when it was still being filmed.It's common to put their stars in events to let people know about their upcoming film."Our next presenter is Jake Gyllenhaal, star of Prisoners ..."
It's all good,we all have our opinions. I meant all promo stuff he can do now, like Monica suggested. Not press junket,too early for it. For Prisoners or Into The Woods, he'll be in the public eye,good for the movies, good for him.
No worries...Just hoping Jake is LA for more than just promotion activity for Prisoners. I hope it's more do with Into the Woods and any other upcoming films.
Apparently "An Enemy" will be called just "Enemy" in Canada.
Gina Luzi @_vulpix 7hOMFG JUST SERVED JAKE GYLLENHAAL #UNFFFFFFFD #YESOMGGina Luzi @_vulpix 7hHe's been here before but this time I got to talk to him and make his yogurt ughhhhbh I love him #heshotasfuck
We'll speculate forever about "why" he's in L A but remember, Jake has a home in L A. His sister's been quoted saying that Jake has "a lovely home" and he has friends there, too. Most people in Jake's line of work manage to spend some time in L.A. I saw photos of Carey & Marcus at the Chateau Marmont a couple of days ago, too. So maybe it's a mix of business & social. He probably has some meetings, maybe auditioning other actors for MG or Nightcrawler. Maybe he's in meetings to get up to speed on his own role in the PR campaign for Prisoners, maybe there's some Enemy-related stuff, maybe he's up for some new projects. It really could be anything.I'm really looking forward to seeing him at the Tonys. It's about time. : )
Same thoughts, Bobbyana.Jake has "a lovely home"I've seen his house and looks beautiful. I like it surrounded by trees.
it makes me nervous that Jake is cutting it so close for the Tonys!Posted on instagram. Not that easy to tell, but it's a blueish t-shirted guy on his phone at asushi restaurant, so it's probably Jake!Agree with Bobbyanna that it's pointless to speculate about why Jake is in LA. I haven't heard anything more about him being on E. Maybe that will give us a hint.
yay the beard is back! hahahaMegan Hilty joined the cast of Into The Woods. Apparently she will play the sister of Cinderella.
Ms. Kgadi @kgadi_neh 17mAmazing night at the #Ubuntu Gala..star studded event Jake Gyllenhaal and Kevin Bacon...Raised close to $300,000!!!
Trent Vanegas @trentvanegas 25mIt was nice running into #JakeGyllenhaal & #KellyBensimon at dinner tonight #namedropperragemp
So glad for the confirmation of Jake as Into the woods's Prince. It may be a supporting role but who cares? It's imo the most baity and funny character of the whole musical
I saw photos of Maggie Gyllenhaal at the Ubuntu Gala but not Jake. The Gala was in New York, the sighting of Jake by Trent Vanega was in Los Angeles. I think he is still in Los Angeles?
"So glad for the confirmation of Jake as Into the woods's Prince"When it happened?:)
Adam Levine got engaged a couple of days ago, so, maybe Jake was in LA for his best friend's engagement party or sth. like that?LikeMonalisa
Adam Levine engaged? LOLOL! No.If that were true, it would be all over the news, not just in The American Sun Times, which is not the same as the Chicago Sun Times.He dropped Behati and just started dating a new model.
New paparazzi pics of Jake wearing a hoodie on IHJ (at The Chateau Marmont In West Hollywood).
Cool, thanks. Perfect amount of facial hair, just a groomed stubble, not a beard.
@Hagen - I don't see any new pics of Jake (in a hoodie at The Marmont) on IHJ?
To see the photos you have to go to the I Heart Jake fan site and click on the gallery link. You should be able to see them. Not sure if you have to register or log in to see them.From FB:"I'm at rehearsal standing next to a giraffe and Jake Gyllenhaal in a ring of fire. " "I have a strange job some days"This man is in L.A. to participate in Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards.
Thomas Hunter @WhiteChinaGold 1mSo today I played guitar in the middle of a ring of fire standing next to a real giraffe while Jake Gyllenhaal gave a speech about The Dude.
@bobbyanna & hagen Thanks! Found them :) He's just looking soooo good, don't know anyone who looks that good in a hoodie :) He's still got the pinky ring on, only first noticed that when he was in Prisoners not sure if he had it before. I hope he lets his hair grow out a bit I don't like the Prisoners do although it was good for the movie, might have to keep it awhile for promos but he might not have time with all the other projects he has lined up!

As for the pinky ring, I think it has an inspirational quote etched on the inside. I read it in an article awhile ago, think he wears it when he he's really busy and needs to remind himself of whatever it says. Wish I could remember where I read that.
Jake Gyllenhaal gave a speech about The Dude.The Dude: Jeff Bridges
Exactly Monica. So I checked Spike Guys Choice Awards on Wikipedia and voila:2013 AwardsOutstanding Literary Achievement: The Dude and the Zen Master by Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman vs Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From the Road by Willie NelsonSeems Jake's speech about The Dude is the presentation for Jeff Bridges.Maggie was his costar in Crazy Heart. Now it makes sense.Mystery solved.
The Dude is the character name of Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski.
Yeah I know the movie.It's an award for Jeff Bridges > presented by Jake > the brother of Bridge's costar in another movie > 6 degrees of separationHope Jake pre-taped his segment yesterday and today he's taking a flight to NY.For Tonys rehersals.Cause if he lands in NY tomorrow he'll miss the rehearsals.
Well they tape tonight (Saturday), I doubt Jake will make it back to the Tonys for rehearsal. But if he is only presenting, what is there to rehearse if he is co-presenting. All he has to do is read the teleprompter and it takes about 5 minutes for someone to tell him, stand there, do this and smile sexily. Jake has been there and done that.
Those big musical productions need to rehearse, and they have to time everything, but Scott's right. Jake only needs to go over his lines, and talk to his co-presenter. He doesn't have to be there in person for that. But he could still leave for New York directly after he finishes his bit tonight, and get there in time for a run thru if he needs to.I'm sure they worked all that out with him. We worry too much.

Jake and Amy Adams: Guys ChoiceJake: Guys Choice
My, my my. Very nice.Thanks monica.
Thanks Monica, I am not a fan of what appears to be a black polo, a black button down would have not made the shoes look so out of place IMO. But I can see the homage to Mr. Bridges in Jake's ensemble.
Amy Adams is really pretty. Alot of HW hunks are at the Guys Choice Awards (well hunks by Hollywood definition). I hope pictures of Jake and Jennifer emerge. Also this is the second year in a row that Jake is presenting an acheivement award to Hollywood's acting royalty. Last year was Merle Streep. I think its a good guess that Jake's connection to Mr. Bridges is more than his sister's movie.
Jake or The Dudehahaha

From FB:Tiffany SchumakerSaw Jake Gyllenhaal at the airport last night. He was pretty scruffy, probably wouldn't have known who he was if it wasn't for all the TSA talking about it. Pretty sure he was on our flight ;-)Candice Renee JacksonNot that I care about him but I saw Jake Gyllenhaal today, I'm just waiting to see my wife lolOne question: What´s TSA talking?
Lara, "Transportation Safety Agency" I think TSA stands for those airport security people who pat you down. LOL! Guess Jake took a "red eye" to get into NYC for Tonys.
Thanks Bobbyanna. :-)
boom 99.7Hollywood star power at the Tony's tonight --- Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bette Midler, Sigourney Weaver, Jesse Eisenberg and Jake Gyllenhaal will all be presenting awards. On CBS 8pm.
Ethan Wendel @EthanWendel 26mJust had a 10 minute conversation with Jake Gyllenhaal
Jeff Bridges may have won an AA for Crazy Heart but he deserved it for The Big Lebowski, what a great performance. Looking forward to seeing Jake present him with the award, should be fun. I would love for Cicley Tyson to take home a Tony tonight!
Not only Bertie but Alan Cummings and Keith Carradine are close to Jake too. I seemed to more impressed with the star power at the Tonys then the Oscars. Tony actors seem to do it all, stage, small and big screen.
Thanks for the photos Monica, Anybody else noticed how much Jake and Jeff look alike, specially on the side profile photos? They can play Father and son! Anxiously waiting for the video!
Ethan Wendel is in Long Branch, New Jersey, which is an hour's drive one way from New York, and another hour's drive back. Unless he is tweeting from New York I think he may be joking or it's mistaken identity. Not saying it's impossible, but I really doubt it. There was also another sighting of Jake in the past few minutes. Someone just had dinner at the next table from him in SoHo House in West London in the UK. They were very convincing. Certain it was him. I wonder if the Tonys are broadcast in London? LOL!

Hi Lara! :)
Bridges should have been nominated for an AA for The Big Lebowski, love Jeff in that role. It should be a fun show with Jake presenting the award to Jeff.Best of luck to all the Tony nominees tonight.
Love the pictures of Jake as The Dude. A skinnier Dude but hilarious and spot on,except the wig is sexier.Or is it Jake who makes it sexy? With the hair,shades,bathrobe ensemble the scruf is perfect. He's so good at impressions.Can't wait to hear the speech. Jake and Jeff seem close. Surely Jake looks up to Mr.Bridges,who doesn't?,but it's nice to see the respect reciprocated. Maybe someday they'll do a Coen brothers dark comedy together.Didn't expect Guys Choice Awards to be such a fun event. Now time for the Tonys star power.
