Timely, topical and totally unverified information about Jake Gyllenhaal
Aww! What a lovely post! : )
I love this post, it's perfect and I think I love the last pic the best !Happy Mothers Day!
Happy mothers day!
Hi, Bobbyanna, Tweety and Monica!I saw Gatsby yesterday. Wasn't impressed. Subpar acting from almost everyone, Leo excepted.The 3D made it worse, I think. And hearing Jake read the story so soon before seeing the movie just heightened Tobey's deficiencies and the flaws of the film.That said, it's nice to see a non-superhero movie make a bang at the box office.
What a sweet lovely post UltraViolet! : )
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I read something in Friday's USA Today that I thought was interesting. It's an interview with Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Leo DiCaprio, and the interview seems quite recent. Okay, here's what caught my attention. The writer asks Tobey about not ever having read Gatsby before he filmed the movie. Tobey's answer (in part): "It wasn't homework...... I had to do roughly 25 voice-over sessions, and Baz and I talked about doing an audio recording of the book. But I don't think either one of us has time to do that."Maybe I am totally misreading his comment, but it just struck me as a passive/aggressive, subtle dig at Jake. Like he's saying, "I had the first shot at an audio reading, and you're clearly second choice.". Makes me wonder if he's a bit insecure about being compared to Jake?I won't be seeing Gatsby, so I'll never know if Tobey was miscast. I'm not a fan of Luhrman's work. His sensory overload style is suffocating to me.Hope all my old GB friends are well! Good to "talk" to you again.
Happy mother's day. I wonder what Jake did for his mom?Lily
Hi, Suvee. I like the work of Baz in Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge. But I can see why many people dislike.I don't know if I'm going to see TGG at the cinema or if I'll wait for the bluray.As for what Tobey, I interpreted as "I'm too busy and Jake have free time." But maybe you're right about the comparisons.
busy in what? Everybody knows he's got the role because he's Leo's best friend-btwSuicide Blonde @suicideblonde 4mDon't believe that Tobey Maguire is a flat voiced failure? Listen to Jake Gyllenhaal read Great Gatsby http://thebea.st/14VKA3N Nascondi il riepilogo
Hi suvee! nice to meet you!: )
Suvee! So good to "see" you, I miss your comments! I'm not. a fan of Baz either so I will be skipping his 3D GG extravaganza. Interesting quote from Tobey in that USA article, kind of a fig at Jake IMO.Thanks for your review UV!Happy Mothers Day!
Suvee! I hope you've been well. We miss you around here. I wondered if you'd gotten to see or at least hear about Jake's role on stage last fall. I know you always hoped he'd play a different role, and Terry in If There Is... was certainly that. It does sound like a dig. Hard to say for sure. I don't think there's any bad blood there, but maybe Tobey is sick of the comparisons?It's more noteworthy - and embarrassing - that he'd never read the book. Did he do the movie and still not read the book? That's shameful.
Jake Gyllenhaal getting into a private helicopter:tumblr
Perhaps off to work??? Thanks Monica
Hi, UV! I am fine, and hope you are as well. You were very much in my thoughts during the horrific Boston Marathon bombing. What a nightmare!I had the same reaction as you.... Tobey had never read Gatsby?! Good grief! But yes, he actually read it before filming. Yes, I have read that Jake was very good in his off Broadway play. I hope he continues to expand his range in movies. I saw that Andrew Garfield was cast in the new Scorsese film. Now that's a role I could very much see as a good fit for Jake. Probably not a block buster movie, but it's a Scorsese film= prestige.Hi to chica and Monica! And FP, nice to meet you, too!
Hey, Suvee!!!! So good to "see" you!Before Gatsby,Isaw Romeo & Juliet, and Strictly, Ballroom, which was unintentionally funny. Hated Moulin Rouge and couldn't get thru it. Saw Gatsby in 2D not 3D, and I enjoyed it for what it was, a fantasy. As for Tobey's comments, I don't think he meant to slam Jake, altho it could certainly be looked at that way, I guess. I think he was saying "Gatsby" wasn't that important to him either as literature, or from a cultural standpoint. He was making a movie. He sounds as detached from his material in that interview, as he was from his character in the film. He hasn't seemed particularly excited about the project and it shows. With all this promotional stuff going on, Tobey barely shows up. Has he even done anything worthwhile since Seabiscuit & Cider House?
Jake honey with unlaced shoes and The shopping bag with the juice inside LOL! : )I Love that man!
Stephanie has seceral pics of Jake getting on the helicopter wonder where's he is off to? Guess we will find out eventually.Hope every one had a nice mother's day I did went to my daughter's boyfriends house for a barbbecue.
"Has he even done anything worthwhile since Seabiscuit & Cider House?"Bobbyanna Tobey also did the movie -Brothers-that was pretty good.But then that actor who reads-The Great Gatsby- so damn good totally eclipsed him so...Just Joking:) I like Tobey,mostly because brothers is one of my favorite Jake's movie :)!
Great photos! Also saw the helicopter photos. Regret that the hideous beard is back in business, with an ugly grey patch in it.
"Jake honey with unlaced shoes...", Damm FP you see everyting. LOL:-) Your attention to detail is amazing, i did noticed this about you before, you could be an amazing doctor just like House, of course with a good sense of humor.Good to see Jake with his best Robinson Crusoé style. There is a lady among the group, she remind me Jake´s mother Naomi.
Variety lists "Nightcrawler" among the buzz titles at the Cannes Film Festival.
when were the helicopter photos taken?Lily
"when were the helicopter photos taken?"yesterday
Love this post UV! In Portugal mothers day was on May 5, so I'm a little late but happy mothers day!!Going to see TGG next friday, my expectations are high, so i hope don't get dissapointed.Hey Suvee, glad your back.
Maybe Jake went to Cannes anyway? "An Enemy" could be a surprise screening, just a positive thought so don't shoot it down with negativity.
He may have gone to a friend's birthday or a friend's wedding, photoshoot ...
I was wondering if he'd go to Cannes for the Film Market, too Scott. He's one of the producers of Nightcrawlers, so maybe the company that's trying to set up distributors thinks his presence would be helpful. But you don't fly a helicopter from NYC to Cannes. LOL! I guess you could take a helicopter from one airport to another. : ) I think some of other possibilities that monica just mentioned are more likely. I guess we'll know soon enough.; )
Lara : )Aww-thanks but unfortunately I'm not that sharp!The other day, for example, the girl who was talking to Jake at the Met Ball, it seemed Tay to me! Fortunately it was not her! LOL! : )Lara Do you remember that episode of House where someone tells House "please do not go away," and he says "I am not Jake Gyllenhaal"?: )LOL!
Had the same thought. Maybe he went to Cannes to help sell The Nightcrawler. He's a producer.Other posibility: scouting locations for Mississippi Grind. He's a producer too.
It's a little annoying that Gosling's Monster movie has already gotten US rights bought by Warner Bros but An Enemy has yet to be picked up.I am alot furstrated now as a Jake fan.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Mothers day, I was lucky enough to spend a few dsys with my Mom.Saw The Great Gatsby sans the 3D . It was noisy and overblown and Leo and Carey had zeto chemistry. Tobey wss a snoozefest. On the plus side the cinematography was dazzling as were the costumes and the soundtrack was fun.Love the Mommy theme post UV and I'm so happy you dropped by Suvee, miss you!I thought that An Enemy had a US distributor:(I forgot that Jake is a producer gor Nightcrawler
Hi FP, when I first saw that girl with Jake I thougt that was Tay too, I had a panic attack. But in the end was another girl. :-)About Dr. House, I remember he had a "fight" with Dr.Foreman (When Foreman was his boss). Dr.House said: I quit. and Foreman said: you can´t quit. So House said: I think you're confusing me with Jake Gyllenhaal. Was so cool!Have a great day everyone.
Scott i can understand why you are so annoying, I´m too. What i can see about Gosling movie (How to Catch a Monster) prodution is from EUA and an Enemy is Canada/Spain. I believe that in EUA it´s could be hard to find somebody to be interesting in a foreign prodution. But it´s just a tought. I just can hope that will soon find a solution.
Scot is annoyed with good reason, not annoying.
You know, I have no idea how it's arranged, but from time to time, I read that a particular actor has signed a development deal with a major studio. The deal allows the actor to develop,including producing, directing, possibly writing, etc. his own projects. I think Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and Ryan Gosling might have this kind of arrangement. I'm not sure. It is not open-ended. It is for a specific period of time, maybe a three year, or a five year contract. As I said, I don't know how these things are arranged, but I do recall reading about actors who have signed development deals, and being surprised at who gets these deals because some of them have "thin" resumes.I don't know if it's something Jake would desire or not,or if it's something he's working toward. But it certainly helps to have a major studio working with you before you even have something to sell.I think Ryan's project sold for $3Million in Cannes.
In encouraging/discouraging news, An Enemy will apparently be screened for sale at Cannes:Pathé International’s team headed by Muriel Sauzay will also have a considerable number of post-production titles to work on for pre-sales with, amongst others, Jacky in Women’s Kingdom by Riad Sattouf (article), Attila Marcel by Sylvain Chomet (article), The Mark of the Angels – Miserere by Sylvain White (news), Superchondriac by Dany Boon, Philomena by Stephen Frears (news), Beauty and the Beast by Christophe Gans (news) and the Canadian-Spanish thriller An Enemy by Denis Villeneuve.Another surprising omission is the latest from “Incendies” director Denis Villeneuve. Many predicted his new psychological thriller “An Enemy” was a shoe in for Cannes this year – especially with an international cast that includes Jake Gyllenhal, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini, and Melanie Laurent - but for whatever reason the Toronto-shot film was not included as part of the lineup.However, these films will still be present at Cannes. Both Dolan and Villeneuve’s films will likely screen outside of competition at the festival’s thriving and ever-growing film distribution market.
To clarify: Bradley Cooper signed a development deal with Warner Bros and Ryan Reynolds has a TV development deal with NBC Universal which he will develop TV series for them. Ryan's following in the footsteps of Sandra Bullock and George Lopez who each developed hit TV series for TV. Sandra wasn't on TV she produced, but Lopez starred in his own show. Haven't found anything to indicated Ryan Gosling has a deal with any studio. The $3M isn't much $$$ but his movie is very low budget so this will cover the production costs, and the marketing and distribution costs will be passed on to others.I always think of "March of the Penguins," a very low cost documentary that sold in Toronto at TIFF for about $2Million. The distributors than hired Morgan Freeman to narrate, cleaned up the documentary a tiny bit, and put a musical score to it. The rest is history. It made millions & millions. : )
LOl...oh well I have been called "annoying" before. That was too funny Lara, made me laugh and yes I know you meant no harm. While I am quite annoyed by what I feel is the lack of respect for Jake's talent, Jake does not seem bothered by the business he is in maybe because he's been around it all his life or it's his Zen like personality of the last 2 or 3 years.
UV, hadn't realized you posted! That's great news for Denis & Jake.
Scott, please i don´t mean "Annoying" person. Forgive my english, is not that so good. But "annoyed with the situation". But was funny. Please accept my apology for the inconvenience.
Drew Carson @TheDrewCarson 1mI'm a Scottish author, comicbook writer...Jake Gyllenhaal had a meeting with Marvel. Which possible franchise would you want to see him appear in & which character?when?
Marvel is old news.
Anon you are starting to become "Annoying" #Justsaying
"Please accept my apology for the inconvenience."I bow down to you Lara and of course apology not needed but accepted."FP said... Anon you are starting to become "Annoying" #Justsaying"Agree with FP.
Why the news about Marvel is old? This was posted before or anon is a troll?Anyway, I hope Jake say no. I'd love to see Jake in a big movie, but it's too early. He has to keep doing what he's doing.
Jake's name comes up over the years when they talk about a comic book hero franchise. Spiderman, Batman, Green Lantern, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Justice League, it's not new.
Yes, I know that anon. But this news is coming from a person who writes comic books (Marvel??), so he must know something and this and seems to be recent. Recalling that Jake was seen at a hotel in Malibu when he was filming Prisones. As he was only for a day or two, I believe it was for work.
Monica I am totally agree with you but is nice to know Jake is required! : )I thought maybe Jake was going with the helicopter in Long Island.Is that possibile?
FP, I saw a sighting of Jake in Los Angeles this morning posted on facebook. I don't know if he's there or not.
Monica this sighting ? Betty at erebus motorsportAm in LA, long flight, not bad but its bloody hot, as in dripping , and I got here in track uniform with heavy boots( idiot) , and walked around all day, going to chill tomorrow, that's why I am here for 2 days first, before I join the circus!Stay week, will update with pics tomorrow, first star spotted at lunching, jake what's his name , you know , think , broke back, sounds like Jill-in-hall lol lol lolWill do longer post , buggered tonightBetty
^^ Yes, FP.
Good detective work Monica. Jake is in LA hmmm, it's becoming rather mysterious. A helicopter to LA? But don't they have that health food organic (make you go to the bathroom) juice in LA? Why did Jake bring his own? Now if we could just find out the identity of the people with Jake? Hmm maybe that other movie Land of the Lost or something completely new? Jake really should consult with his fans first.
I hate to be supportive of 7:55pm but in the last week or two there has been article on twitter and the internet about HW actors that were "almost" comic heroes on the big screen and what ifs.Monica Jake is 32 going on 33, so I think in a year or two it may be his time but I hope it's not a comic hero but some other thinking hero franchise (original if possible). Jake is way too handsome to be hidden by a costume and he can act. No offense to other actors.
Hollywood Reporter @THR 39sEXCLUSIVE: Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal Circling Musical 'Into the Woods' http://bit.ly/19qeRFO
Deal-making hasn’t quite begun but the two actors met and even sang for director Rob Marshall for their respective parts and are expected to receive offers to join the star-studded cast.If deals close, Gyllenhaal and Pine would play their first on-screen singing roles. Sources say that Gyllenhaal and Pine would play the musical’s two princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince, brothers who are pompous and self-absorbed.awww Prince Jake!!
ake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are in discussions to join Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep in Disney’s adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.Deal-making hasn’t quite begun but the two actors met and even sang for director Rob Marshall for their respective parts and are expected to receive offers to join the star-studded cast.If deals close, Gyllenhaal and Pine would play their first on-screen singing roles.Into the Woods is a darkly comic mash-up of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker and his wife, who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.Streep will play the plum role of the vain and charismatic Witch while Depp will play a hungry and sexy variation of a fairy tale wolf.Sources say that Gyllenhaal and Pine would play the musical’s two princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince, brothers who are pompous and self-absorbed.A fall production start is being eyed. The project is expected to attract more big names. John DeLuca is producing.holy---shit!!
I saw this play many years ago and it is delightful. Jake would get to sing!
Wow a singing role for Jake that would be great.But filming would probably start in the fall the article says and nightcrawler too wonder how that would work out?
Finally we now know what LA is about. Aww Jake with Meryl and Chris Pine who came to the Source Code premiere. I remember seeing a pic of Jake and Chris together.Six degrees- Didn't Chris play a prince with Anne in a movie....?
Mary, Johnny Depp is currently filming Transcendence, and he will still work in another movie after this. I think this musical will begin filming in the end of this year.Nightcrawler is an indie film, so it can be shot in a month.
I hope this happens, really I do. I want to hear Jake sing.
Monica I think you were right about that business meeting in that hotel in Malibu when he was filming Prisones
Amazing News, great. I just saw this FB, it is seems that guy work at MGM internatonal.Brandon ThomasSo Jake Gyllenhaal was in the office today, must have something to do with Hot Tub Time Machine II. Looks like he may be taking over John Cusack's role.I found this: http://collider.com/hot-tub-time-machine-2-sequel-news-john-cusack/
Ok, I'm not a fan of Rob Marshall. Catherine was the only good thing in Chicago and I didn't like Nine.And not like when I read that he was going to direct this musical.But I do not know, Johnny is the leader and it seems more like a movie for the summer.Jake in a big movie that will call attention!!!Here a video of the musical.
Lara Brandon Thomas is in LA?
Definitely nice to see Jake's name associated with a big movie. The big Jake fan on the Broadway World message board wanted Jake to play the Baker. But I think a Broadway actor got that part.He had a positive reaction to this rumor, too :)Hot Tub Time Machine? I'll try to withhold judgment.
FP, the office of MGM is in Los Angeles.
"He had a positive reaction to this rumor, too "Chris and Jake singing together is hot as heck, and they both can sing although most do not know this? But they could just stand there and I would gladly pay. But I am still reluctant to get too excited about this as Jake fans have not had great luck with Jake sticking with a high profile part or a high profile part sticking with Jake. If that hot tub movie rumor is true, I have no doubt Jake would take the role as he is probably a fan and likes improv. Filming on In the Woods begins in Sept 2013, tenative that is according to one of the Broadway sites.
FP, what i saw from his FB page yes he is from LA.
Here's another version of Agony, apparently the song Jake and Chris would sing.I'm so jealous that Pine has not one but two franchises. It escapes reason that jake hasn't managed to make it into a franchise yet. All of the superhero roles seem ridiculous at this point. Antman?I don't know what to think, but I'm happy to see Jake continuing to diversify.
And another movie I wanted for Jake: Brad Pitt's Tank Drama Fury Adds Michael Pena.Come on, David Ayer!
I won't comment on Chris Pine because I like him and he has had to fight for roles because of Star Trek boxing him in, believe me he fought hard for Jack Reacher but it's been done before and too similar to Bourne. Batwing would be great for Jake if he must be comic hero, Batwing is the prodigy of Batman and leader of international crime fighting not a sidekick like Robin.
UV, Brad would not allow Jake or any actor better looking than him in the same movie again, not since Tom Cruise. Clooney and he have too big egos. Good for David Ayers and Michael Pena though but it sounds a bit like that IG movie doesn't it?
Anon what is a IG movie?
Wow what exciting news to wake up to , love Into The Woods! Meryl, Depp and Pine, I'm so there!
Goοd post. I am going through some of these issues as well..Have a lοok at my web-site Hemorrhoids home cure
wonder which prince Jake will play? if he really join this project.LikeMonalisa
Rebecca Hall @BeccaHall123 2hJust casually saw jake gyllenhaal .. #chateaumarmont #la #neverwannaleave
The Playlist is reporting that Jake will play the role of Cinderella's Prince. It also says that Anna Kendrick, Nina Arianda and Allison Janney did a reading of the musical for Rob Marshall last year.Anna Kendrick? please!!
Re:Fury: I knew Ayer won/t cast Jake. He used Jake's name for End of Watch promotion.It did very well for a 7 mil $ movie. During the premiere Ayer didn't show much respect to Jake's talent. After, he didn't talk at all about Jake. Jake put his heart in the movie, did everything for it >> another actor colects the benefits. Not the first time for Jake.
8:59am, you might be right anon but I remember Jake fighting for the EOW part, he had to read and auditioned for a $7 million dollar film. I however beleive that if Ayers felt Jake was right for a role he would have given it to him, Pitt is the leading man in this film. I think if there is any slight it's not coming from Ayers but maybe the lead and the studio itself. To be honest, it would bug me for Jake to play second fiddle to Pitt, and it bugs that Pena will play second fiddle to Pitt. The lead must be a dumb character because Pitt does that well.
The lead must be a dumb character because Pitt does that well. LOLLOL : )
Anon, 8:59, I thought Jake and Ayer got along fine. I picked up no animosity between them. I just can't buy into some conjecture that Ayer didn't give Jake respect, etc. I'm glad Ayer's working with Pena again. Who knows which stars in the universe lined up that allowed Pena to take that role, and who'd fault any director that has a chance to work with Brad Pitt? I agree with UV,I'd love to see Jake in Fury or something like it, but I'm not going to assume Jake was rejected for the part, or that Ayer doesn't like him. And the simple truth is that Brad Pitt attracts a lot of financing/distribution to a movie.Jake is getting "there." I get upset too when I see announcements of film projects that sound cool and Jake isn't part of them. I'm glad he switched agencies to WME. The poor guy lost a lot of time with CAA mishandling him. He will find his footing, I absolutely believe he will. (I hate CAA. )
and who'd fault any director that has a chance to work with Brad Pitt?This is my thought. It is an opportunity to Ayer work with a big star and gaining visibility not only in the U.S. but worldwide. But that doesn't mean he didn't want to work with Jake.And John Lesher, a friend of Jake, is also one of the producers.You know, Jake is well. He's got so many projects and who knows how many more to come with this sighting at MGM and a possible reunion on Marvel.
I know I'm late to the party, but here is another article about Jake and Chris Pine being approached to be in "Out of the Woods."It also mentioned that "Prisoners" is going to be released Sept 20th, I hadn't heard a release date before this. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/chris-pine-jake-gyllenhaal-circling-522404Lily
I'm glad if Jake is going to be part of one of those movies with a lot of famous actors he's doing it with Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, and it's not some random movie like Valentines Day or that New Year's Eve mess.
I definitely understand Ayer doing a movie with Brad Pitt. I was just hoping that Jake would be in the ensemble. I don't assume that Jake didn't get a part he tried for. I was just hoping there was a part for him.I think Ayer was very complimentary about Jake.I don't know which role is better, but Jake really should be Prince Charming :)
hi, UV,I don't know which role is better, but Jake really should be Prince Charming :)-------------they said Cinderella's Prince is the bigger partLikeMonalisa
Well I have come down from my giddiness. I am still cautious about any high profile role in which Jake is in "talks".But I feel it's a good sign Jake is in Los Angeles which could mean anything business related.
Emma Weeks @emma__weeks 1mJUST DROVE NEXT TO JAKE GYLLENHAAL SOMEBODY HELP
Looks like TGG has got an icy reception at Cannes. It seems that at the end of the press screening none of the more than 3,200 journalists in the room has applauded
What's the point of screening a film at a film festival that has already had its North American opening? This was about PR, not good film work. After ignoring Denis twice, I for one would be ok if GG left a stench on Cannes.
Anon Cannes ignored brokeback too.So I take it as a good sign
from FB: Carmine BicchettiTrue Story: Last night while I was bartending Jake Gyllenhaal was staring at me, I asked him if he needed anything and he said " I was just admiring your cup" I replied "Yours aint too bad either" and then he pointed out that he was referring to my actual copper mug. Oops · 26 perce, Los Angeles, CA közelében ·
ComicBookMovie.com @ComicBook_Movie 9mRUMOR: Hawkeye is Not a Part of Marvel Studios' Phase 2 and Jeremy Renner Could be Recast http://fb.me/2hDh9JSQeCharlie The Unicorn @princesscharlie 7mIf that rumour turns out to be true, I will send a howler to Marvel.Sasha @Sasha4Jake 5m@princesscharlie Hmmm. That puts new light on the tweet from yesterday that Jake Gyllenhaal is meeting with Marvel. #Iwantfacts
Comic Book Movie is not a reliable source.BTW The role was mediocre.Jake, please, stay away from these films.
No, no hawkeye. AntMman is looking pretty good actually after reading about the character. The Ant Man created the Avengers.
Jake could play villian, which would be awesome.
LOL at the cup story. Good to see Jake right back in the CZ in LA!Speaking of CZs, I think qualifies for Jake in SFO. Not sure if this is a mistaken sighting or if he went to SFO on the way to LA:From my secret restaurant source -- dining in San Francisco this week: Oh, and Jake Gylenhaal dined at Locanda. He enjoyed the Jewish-style artichokes, the bucatini all’amatriciana, the burrata cuscini with crawfish, and the bavette steak. My spy said he also toasted with a glass of Pievalta Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi.Not sure what to think about the Renner thing. I recall reading that he didn't have much to do in the movie. As annoying as I find these superhero flicks, they generate a lot of publicity and good will for the actors.
UV, he doesn't do anything interesting in the film.I'm not blame Renner, but who wrote the character. Renner himself publicly complained about the character.I hope Jake doesn't go to these movies. He can do better.SF? Maybe he went to the Edible Schoolyard.
Maybe yes, Edible Schoolyard and also maybe he has friends there?
For me the important thing is that Jake is vying for roles so important. Also I think he can and should do better, but it's nice to know that he is up there among the top choices of HW
Lucas Letkeman @Luke1419 3m@Ryan_ProudSons OMG I just saw Jake Gyllenhaal running down Saskatchewan Ave #babeSanDiego?
I was reading some coments that it's not easy to sing Sondheim:"Jake should do a musical," Luhrmann said. "He's a wonderful actor, but [he has a] great voice, tremendous voice. He sang some [Stephen] Sondheim for me, complicated singing, great voice.
I've posted that a few times, Monica. Not sure how good a judge of musical talent Baz is but it is encouraging.
Leaving The Chateau Marmont In Los Angeleshttp://www.iheartjakemedia.com/thumbnails.php?album=2390
This Is awedome news! I remember reports last year of Jake at a performance of Into the Woods in Central park eith Amy Adams. Jakr will accept if offered , he wouldn' t have bothered to audition.Antman? Please say no Jake!
Guess he still has the black audi wonder if he still has his place in LA?
Adam Scott has the lead role in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2
Well Looks like Jake wasn't at MGM for this movie
^^ which is good. So he was there for another movie!
Fingers crossed Monica! : )
I saw TGG red carpet at Cannes , it was raining a lot Tobey and Leo seemed a little disoriented Carey was beautiful as an angelI would have liked to see there Jake, with his tuxedo, he would have overshadowed everyone : )
"http://www.iheartjakemedia.com/thumbnails.php?album=2390"Lol. I love Jake but if I did not know who he was I would be so afraid of him especially in the first picture. He looks deranged, like American Psycho deranged.
He was having trouble seeing with the photographers lights hitting him as he was driving away. They swarm that area.
"He was having trouble seeing with the photographers lights hitting him as he was driving away. They swarm that area."I meant no disrespect anon to Jake.
I remembered thisNar's GoonzA! Thank you to actor Jake Gyllenhaal & Chris Pine had best time working with these fellas during @vogue @metball 2013 .... such honor be apart there night wit Fashion biggest night of year man!!!!8 May
Knox @ImjKnox 10mToday I met jake gyllenhaal. He was looking rough. Yet a charming nice guy.
Im a bit latw but a very cautious Yippeee! And unlike the Damn Yankees rumors, this is legit.I dont know about Chris but Jake has a great singing voice. He will be very busy this year !
Why IS Jake "looking rough" ? It takes him 5 minutes to grow out his beard, so he really doesn't need it "for work" like he's always saying. His hair is too long and he looks homeless. He seems to run away from his looks and that's a shame.
no need to worry, he'll start shooting 1, 2, 3 movies - so he'll look like a prince literally.on his off time - let him be.
I really don't understand this homeless look either. He started looking like this after end of watch, why why? Such a shame.
"I really don't understand this homeless look either. He started looking like this after end of watch, why why? Such a shame"Uh no, Jake had huge facial hair before EOW. I was talking about his eyes but as it was pointed out it was the camera lights. I was not freaked out by his outer appearance but the look in his eyes. There is nothing wrong with homeless people except unfortunate circumstances that can happen to anyone and anywhere.
Yes, but Jake's looks are an asset just like his talent. He needs both. There's a lot of talented actors who look awful and are unlucky. Jake is lucky, as well as good looking, and talented, and he needs to own all his assets. I love Jake, but I'm not going to pretend I'm happy with the way he presents himself lately. A beard is fine if it is groomed.
"Anon 7:03 said..."Are you kidding? Jake looks better on a bad day than most actors do at the Oscars. I am pretty sure movie studios, directors and producers know that Jake can clean up well. He's not a model but an actor. Alot of actors don't look Oscar ready on their time off. It's about you and how you think Jake should look. Sure I prefer Jake in a tux with no shirt 24/7 but that is not going to happen, Jake has grown in many ways in the last few years. Seeing a man kill/die in front of you changes your priorities. I take him at his word that changed him apparently in more ways than one.
Hi everybody,This film adaptation of Into The Woods have an impressive cast, I imagine working with Meryl is a big honour, she is a legend. And sure worth the singing challenge. I’ve heard Jake singing before, It was Saturday Night Live. It was the year of Dreamgirls, a year after Brokeback Mountain it was funny and cool that guy can sing. And Chris, well he can sing too, but I really don´t even care if this two singing or not I will pay the ticket anyway. And by the way Chris is a better HOT brother then Tobey.Here is Chris Pine singing, What you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gd_W9ONihDQ
I'm not criticizing how Jake dresses, and I don't need to see him in a tux, or shirtless, but I'm entitled to say I personally don't care for this wild, untrimmed beard, and the greasy, long-hair version of Jake. I love Jake to pieces. He's a beautiful person, and I wish good things for him. We just have different opinions.
People might take your opinion more seriously if you chose a name. It amazes me that people post here anonymously and assume people won't question them.Not that I think Scott was even doing that - it's just a difference of opinion. But when someone comes in to post only that they hate the way Jake currently looks, you can't blame us for thinking, basically, "Who cares?"
No problem! I don't like this hollywood version of the regular guy: greasy hair, baseball cap and wild beard. He could do so much better. Besides that he is a great actor and seems to be a nice person.
Sandi McKenna @SandiMcKenna 1mA10: Jake Gyllenhaal winked at me in the hotel lobby. Does that count ;-) #TNI #HyattHouse
Hi everyone, tomorrow is the National Day of Norway. Among us, the day is referred to simply as syttende mai (meaning May Seventeenth). Will be a long day start with big family breakfest, after we go to a children's parades and marching bands (this is a non-military nature event), after going to Coffee shops to talk with friends, dinner, ice cream, and after more parade, it´s all day long. When I come back home I´m at last 5 kilos heavier and exhausted, but very happy. In special occasion we wear traditional outfits, called BUNAD.You can see some Bunad photos here they are in diferent colors and style that tell where in Norway you come from: http://oslonights.no/2010/05/18/norwegian-constitution-day-17-05-10/And a very short video from the parede: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=rLwQznuEVuY&feature=endscreen God 17. Mai alle sammen ( Happy National Day to all of you)
Justin Kroll @krolljvar 1mEXCLU with @marcgraser Emily Blunt in talks for INTO THE WOODS, would play the Baker's Wife http://variety.com/2013/biz/news/emily-blunt-in-talks-to-join-disneys-into-the-woods-exclusive-1200482682/ …
Hi Lara! How cool the National Day of Norway!I wish to you and your family all the fun that you can hold serenity and joy!! : )PS-What a beautiful coutnry Norway : )!!!!
PPS--Lara the girls in typical Norwegian custom are beautiful!: )
Lara thank you so much for sharing with us! I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow! Monica!! That's a great find! Emily Blunt! I adore her!
I definitely agree the man is at Chateau Marmont and has a sweatshirt on. He is on his 30s and a good looking man. He needs to step it up. He was very charming when I met him last memorial day weekend. He needs to look like a man inhospitable 30s. That's my opinion. He has the goods.
Wow what a cast!
Assuming he is on board for "Into the Woods"...what is supposed to be shoot before, this one, Missisipi Grind or Night Crawler???I know he needs some rest from time to time, but i'm not gonna lie: loving his nowadays rythm of work!
Hi Stefanie!lucky girl!Where and how you met Jake?:))
The princes sing Agony twice in the musical, but the prince of Cinderella has a duet with the baker's wife!
Monica, I saw the "Agony" song I & II on YouTube, but I didn't realize Prince Charming & The Baker's Wife had a song.I did discover the DVD of Into the Woods with the original Broadway cast on Amazon. You can rent it to watch for $2.99 online, if you're interested. I might do that...after Jake is confirmed. : )
Have fun tomorrow Lara sounds like a fun day.Wow the cast for Into the Woods is sure shaping up so far sounds like a great cast.
Well I am nervous, Emily has supposedly been offered the role in the movie while Chris and Jake have not. So, have we once again been teased only to have someone get the role?
Scott looks she is in talks for- just like Crhis and Jakefrom-HRLike Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine, the "Looper" star is very close to joining Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep in the live-action musical.Emily Blunt is the latest A-list name said to be nearing a deal to join Disney's big-budget adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, sources close to the production have confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.our editor recommendsChris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal Circling Musical 'Into the Woods' (Exclusive)Johnny Depp to Star in Disney Musical 'Into the Woods'If the deal closes, the Looper star would join Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep, already confirmed for the roles of the Wolf and the Witch. The live-action adaptation is being helmed by Rob Marshall.Also said to be near a deal are Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine, who would play Cinderella's Prince and Rapunzel's Prince.
FP, Scott is saying that she received the offer to join the cast, while Jake and Chris did an audition with the director. I think now is in the hands of Jake's agent (and maybe director) to convince the producers that he is ideal for the role.
Thanks FP. Unfortunately HR has been wrong before about other close deals.
Scott is saying that she received the offer to join the castWe don't know if it is in this waymay she did all the audition-And in this case it is right to do audition because it seems a complex role where you have to show particular skills that go beyond the mere recitation
Jeff SneiderUPDATE: While JAMES CORDEN has previously been reported as the inevitable star of Disney's INTO THE WOODS, he has NOT been officially cast.
it could mean that he's in talks or disney want a star for the role.
Well it could make him a star, I understand James Corden is very good. Also Christine Baranski has also auditioned or in talks to be Cinderalla's stepmother. Ms. Baranski can really sing and has been on Broadway, film and TV. So at least it sounds as if they are trying to create a well rounded cast.
Or maybe the director was so impressed by Jake's audition and now He wants to entrust him with the main part! LOL Just Joking but I try to think positive!:)
Marion auditioned for Liliane in Nine, but took the role Luisa, while Penelope auditioned for claudia but played Carla.And anne hathaway lost to kate hudson. lolChristine Baranski is great. She was in Chicago.
Well Anne will be taking her revenge on kate hudson and a oscar-too...lol: )
FP I met Jake while he was in IfThereIs.. I was at show and I needed air because there was a scene in the play I got a little light headed. The usher walked me outside and Jake was out there. Jake asked if I was ok. I told him I was he asked me my name where I was from. The guy that was clearly security asked what I did for a living. We chatted for about 10 minutes then I walked back inside w Jake he hit the stage and I went back to my seat it was great. Jake was really nice and really cute.
FP. In my first post I said memorial day it was actually labor day weekend.
Stefanie that's graat! You were so lucky!:))))Would have been enough to see the play: )for me!Unfortunately I'm on the other side of the world :(
Sorry FP :( the play was great my friend and I were really impressed by it. I live in Massachusetts so NYC is not that far for me. :) Hope you can come to the States someday.
Great to hear the news about into the woods.Lara, my husband will be in Oslo watching the parades too, it will be his first Norwegian day and his coworkers say it is beautiful.
Oh my, I just realized who James Corden was, the issue seems to be if he and Emily Blunt would make sense as a couple. Oh HW, don't stupid, Corden is excellent. Anybody see the History Boys? I think it would be inspiring casting he and Emily as the Baker and his wife. The baken and his wife should not be HW glamour, so maybe Emily is a miscast?
Christophe Courtois @Christophe_Co 4mDistributeur de films diurne, blogueur nocturne (compte très personnel ne reflétant pas les opinions bla bla bla...)Premières images de "Prisoners" de Denis Villeneuve (avec Hugh Jackman et Jake Gyllenhaal) absolument si-dé-rantes. Quelle mise en scène !
Nik PateSo the latest from my sister in L.A.... 'I ve just had breakfast with Jake Gyllenhaal'...... yep... THAT. Dead
...It is also being reported that Christine Baranski is in talks to play Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother, according to The Wrap.http://www.justjared.com/2013/05/16/emily-blunt-chris-pine-jake-gyllenhaal-join-into-the-woods/OH dear, I just love her.
Hi FP, thanks, you are always so sweet. Also thanks Bobbyanna, Mary and Paula C. It was awesome. I will need, at list, 1000 hrs. with Zumba class next week.:-)OOPS!!!! Scott, i did not see that you already posted about Cristine Baranski. She is cool, in Big Bang Theory as Leonard´s mother.
The filming of Into The Woods start in September and will shoot in London: Disney Casting Calls
Hi Monica, In September? And Do NW with Renee Russo will start filming in October? and will be reliese of the Prisioners in September,is that right? So maybe will be difficult to Jake to join the movie.
No, Lara. It's a small role and I think he can film his scenes in a week or two.
Ok! Great! Thanks Monica.
from FB: Ryan Talamantes Los Angeles, CA Jake Gyllenhaal is sitting next to me at a little cafe in culver city right now. He looks so cute... I neeeed to stop looking over at him/ I think he's getting creeped out!! lol
"little cafe in culver city"Since the 1920s, Culver City has been a significant center for motion picture and later television production, in part because it was the home of MGM Studios.
Hope you had a happy Norwegian Day, Lara. Those costumes are great. Looks like a fun day :)
Thank you UV, It was a happy, wonderful day.

Christine Jutras @christinelalala 2hYou know you love being in NYC when you meet Jake Gyllenhaal while waiting for the light to change :) #luckyasf*ck
Jake Gyllenhaal and a friend heading to the gym in sohofangirl.org
"Jake Gyllenhaal and a friend heading to the gym in soho"Vampire Weekend poster in the background.....lol
Photos on daily mail. He doesn't look good, with the ugly beard and the stupid baseball cap.
Jake doesn't seem interested in making himself look good these days, Maria. I'm afraid you're going to continue to be unhappy.Prisoners sneaking already? If you live in Burbank and you're aged 21 - 44, go for it!
I know people have got opinions of Jake's beard but I wish I didn't have to read complains about it each time there is a new picture of him.
I don't know what's wrong with Jake's look. He has said he doesn't like shave, and it's not like he with greasy hair, for example. He seems fine for who are going to the gym.
I agree, Paulina and Monica. But it's also true that some people don't comment on anything but the way Jake looks. It's a shame.
I should have said I mostly agree. I do think Jake looks pretty grungy but as Monica said, he's going to the gym.Most people seem to prefer Jake without the full beard but Jake seems to prefer it, so we have to get used to it and not moan about it every time there is a photo. Or at least not make it the only thing we talk about. To that end: Did anyone notice that there will be a sneak peek of Prisoners tomorrow, as I posted above? Fingers crossed for some good reactions.Some info on the head of the team pitching Nightcrawler at Cannes. They have had good success with other movies, so fingers crossed.
Thanks for the update on Nightcrawlers from Cannes, UV. I Ryan Gosling's movie seems to be enjoying some success with distribution deals and I hope Jake will do well too. (Ryan's still in town here, making his movie. Haven't seen him, but I recognized the shopping bags Eva Mendez was carrying the other day! LOL!)
Ryan Gosling seems to be drawn to your neck of the woods, Bobbyanna :)Sarah Gadon is in Italian Vogue. I think this covers everything about An Enemy. Had to transcribe, translate and then clean up, so be gentle:::::She will play a pregnant woman, costarring in an erotic-existential thriller based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago. "An Enemy reflects on the differences between the ideal image that people have of themselves and the reality." In the film by Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, Gadon had to face her first sex scenes in front of the camera. Fortunately, in addition an attractive partner like Gyllenhaal, the Toronto actress was able to hide behind the prosthesis she wore to look pregnant: a sort of silicon armor that weighed more than three pounds and covered her entire torso. "Behind the prosthesis, I felt protected. Not having to deal with the image of my naked body made everything much simpler."Bearing the belly of a woman six months pregnant not only lightened the sex scenes. It also allowed some anticipation for pregnancy, something Gadon hopes to happen soon, although she currently does not have a Prince Charming. The prosthesis was so real that at the end of a day on set, her back and feet hurt, just as if she were really pregnant. There were difference in the way she moved, as well as the way other people related to her. "I've always associated motherhood with a sense of strength. I didn't expect to also feel vulnerable. Changing the shape of my body changed the way I perceive my femininity. It made me feel more insecure." The experience and was strong enough to cause her to keep the fake belly to compare with the real one, when the time comes."I keep it in a closet at home. It's strange to have a memory of an experience I have not yet actually had."Villeneuve's film should be presented in one of the big film festivals international this year (Gadon hopes it will be shown in Venice). ::::I'd love to see it in Venice, as well. Toronto seems more likely, sadly.
"an erotic existential thriller" sigh. Fine translation, UV. You got the important words right. : )It is 80+ degrees here. Actually, I think Ryan Gosling is pretty close to his family by shooting here, because they are somewhere around London, Ontario, in Canada, I think. That's about a 2.5 hr drive.
I have to agree too! It's great that he has so much work these days, loved end of watch. But the rough hipster look dissapoints me.
Thanks for your efforts to translate the text, UV. "An Enemy" reflects on the differences between the ideal image that people have of themselves and the reality.I really hope Denis Villeneuve will manage to get that across in the movie. It won't be easy.I'd love to see it in Venice, as well. Toronto seems more likely, sadly.I'd be fine with TIFF, though it seems to be the biggest film festival. I get the impression that many films that are screened there are largely ignored by the public.
Congratulations to Nathan Lane on his Drama League Award. Eventually, it will be Jake's turn.Did anyone notice that there will be a sneak peek of Prisoners tomorrow, as I posted above?I'm still surprised how early they give a sneak peek of "Prisoners". That's quite a stark difference to "An Enemy"
Entertainment Weekly: Although they haven’t cast the lead role yet, Ant-Man is now the only definite part of Marvel’s Phase Three. For the uninitiated, Ant-Man is about a hero with a suit that allows him to miniaturize at will and communicate with insects and other small-but-dangerous creatures.I'm one of the few people who haven't watched any of the Marvel movies. I think Ant-Man wouldn't be my cup of tea.
Correct link to Entertainment Weekly
I think Jonah Hill would make a great Ant Man. He could come across as some nerdy unassuming guy who has superpowers. Or Jesse Eisenberg. Great Ant Man. ; )
Ant Man? Geez, HW is running out of comic book heroes. I hope Jake stays away from that. Speaking of comic book flicks, Iron man 3 bored me to tears and I'm officially over RDJ. He come across as a smug tool. That said, it's making a shitload of $$ and that all that matters in HW.I can't wait to hear the feedback on the Prisoners screenings. Thanks all for all the updates.
"I'm officially over RDJ. He come across as a smug tool"Have you read his interview from the EW link Hagen provided? Oh my goodness RDJ, don't make the same mistake again by believing the hype that has been bestowed upon you. I like RDJ but lately he does come off a bit of a Hollywood douche as opposed to the normal everyday douche.
