Back to school
The Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University has not yet begun classes. But they did have an early seminar Tuesday night: Jake Gyllenhaal on a segment of Inside the Actors Studio, with legendary host James Lipton.
A lot of folks showed up for the taping, though most kept their cell phones and cameras away:
There was no tweeting from anyone as the discussion was happening. But we did get a few snippets:
"Forgive yourself and believe in your choices."
"Don't let the character's uniform define you. We worked six months in rehearsal to shed the uniform."
"Annie [Hathaway] is precise. Technique. I'm a mess. I like to throw things against the wall and see what sticks."
"Winning an award for the movie with the sixth-most profanity of all time. Now that would make me proud." (re: End Of Watch)
"Nothing gives me more joy than seeing other actors kill it."
Hopefully we'll hear more from the lucky attendees. And we'll find out soon when the program will air.
"Bad lighting, bad angle, bad-ass dude."
<"Is it cool if I get a pic with you? Unless you’re exhausted. Is this like super intrusive?" And then he lol’d so I guess we’re best friends now right?>
