Nightcrawler premiered in Toronto amid a major storm. The rains didn't stop Jake Gyllenhaal from greeting fans, and the dark clouds didn't portend doom for the film, which thrilled audiences and critics.
Some bits and pieces from a busy day for the NC crew. First up, snippets from the Variety Studio chat:
Last time I interviewed Jake Gyllenhaal on camera, the sound cut out. Today, a light blew out. Me: "YOU keep doing this!" Him: "Not me. Us."
Oh my. I think I would have lost myself at that moment.
I'm rarely speechless, but that almost got me. I think I said something like:"Man, I'm gonna be dining out on that for YEARS."
Holy hell, that's magical!
Red Carpet Diary interviews - another director in love with Jake:

According to this series of tweets from the CityNews guys, there must be more to this interview:
Best. Interview. Ever. #JakeGyllenhaal at the #NightcrawlerMovie premiere at #tiff14 with @colinjustin? Priceless. pic.twitter.com/unalVVJoe0
OUR FAVOURITE EVER! This dude is a total gentleman and SO FUNNY! Fave chat with Jake. And we've interviewed him many times!
@EntCity we may just have told Jake that our kitten is called Jake and he sits on our chest and licks our faces. Crazy! #tiff14
So we told Mr Gyllenhall we had a kitten named after him; Jake. And that he sits on Colin's chest and licks his face. He took it in, er, good humour. VERY cool guy. And we whispered to Rene Russo that it was amazing she looked as good as she does beyond 40. 1940... She seemed to enjoy the Glasgow banter and told us never to succumb to surgery, advising nothing apart from lasers.
From an audience member: Jake, are you as naturally weird as your character?
