MCM



Sure, MCM usually stands for Man Candy Monday. Or Man Crush Monday. We're going with Memory Card Monday. Above is a photo posted on Facebook from a before-he-was-famous photoshoot. Probably this one. Below, an assortment of recently posted pics from the far and not-so-distant past.








Jake on Nightcrawler and what he's learned and what he's kept from other roles:

Love the picture with Heath. Sigh.

Thanks for the new post, UV! Nice pics!

UV - yes, I agree with you it should be ignored, I reacted just because it is still the same anon and it was not the first post in this way. But well, let's focus on award season, I am so curious how all these predictions will end.

Also have you seen this interview, I never did before?

"...this horse says the guy can do!..."

LOLOL!

Love Peter Travers!


Great Pics, UV!

Hagen said...

I've hardly recognized Jake in the first picture.
Jake is #5 in "Hollywood Elsewhere's" ranking of likely "Best Actor" nominees, which is admittedly hardly a reliable indicator.

UltraViolet said...

Wells is an ass, but I'm happy to see someone predicting Jake. He needs a groundswell.

SV, we did post that interview, but I'm sure it got lost in the sea. I like to see the roundtable videos. It's fun to see how that works.

Some fun tweets:

We have been given promo t shirts to wear at work that are literally just Jake Gyllenhaal's face and I am snuggling w it in bed right now

Does Jake gyllenhaal's new Broadway play have any nudity in it ? Asking for a friend.....

Every time jake gyllenhaal comes to my job, I die a bit inside. But I play it cool.


A few Jake NYC sightings today:

Totally saw Jake Gyllenhaal 😍😍

you are lying. stop it. I hate you. 😒

he passed and i didn't realize who he was till was too far to chase him down.

I'm disappointed in you & wayyyy jealous

Anna Kendrick ‘Pissed’ at Jake Gyllenhaal for Dropping Out of ‘Into the Woods’


Getty Images

Anna Kendrick is “pissed.”

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the actress, who is playing Cinderella in the film adaptation of Into the Woods, reveals that she was upset to learn that Jake Gyllenhaal would not be a prince in the movie opening on Christmas day.

"I know! I was so pissed at Jake, let me tell you," Kendrick says of her former End of Watch co-star. "I texted him and said, 'You’re abandoning me, and I’m never going to forgive you!' "

Last year, it was reported that the Nightcrawler star signed on to share prince duties with Chris Pine – Gyllenhaal was to be Rapunzel’s suitor while Pine lusts after Cinderella – but later pulled out of Rob Marshall’s big screen version to focus on the indie thriller. And, after awhile, Kendrick finally cooled her temper.

"And then I saw the trailer to Nightcrawler and texted him again and said, 'Wow, you inspire me every day,' " she says, adding that "Billy [Magnussen, Gyllenhaal’s replacement in the film] is really fantastic."

Monica said...

'You’re abandoning me, and I’m never going to forgive you!'

hahaha She is so lovely. I hope they will work together again.

UltraViolet said...

With all the publicity and buzz, I was getting pissed off all over again. But if it is true Jake was going to play Rapunzel's prince, then I am no longer annoyed. Though I think that is just a cover story.

Chris Pine is getting raves as Cinderella's prince, so it would have been more annoying if Jake, in a smaller role, had to play second fiddle to Captain Kirk.

I wonder if Jake answers Anna's texts :)

bobbyanna said...

Aren't they announcing the Independent Spirit Award nominations today? I read that somewhere.

LOL! Anna. I agree she's adorable. Hope they can work together again, as well. : )

I'm glad if Jake dropped out of the role of Rapunzel's prince. Although, it seems like Chris Pine was announced after Jake dropped out. I could be remembering it wrong...; )

Monica said...

5 nominations for Nightcrawler at Indie Spirit Awards:

Variety

Yay Jake!!!

Mary said...

Yea for Jake and Riz and Nightcrawlers

UltraViolet said...

Yes! Congratulations to Jake, Dan, Riz and Dan's brother. Surprised Deakins didn't get nominated. And very sad that Rene Russo was ignored.

But hallelujah to no Imitation Game nods. There was a rumor that Harvey W had somehow managed to make TIG eligible. It's going to get enough Oscar love. They don't need the ISAs.

Interesting question now will be if Jake attends. If he gets an Oscar nomination, would he do the Saturday shows of Constellations and then fly on Sunday? Or cancel Saturday. Would he cancel Saturday just for the ISAs? And what about the BAFTAs, where I'd love to see him get some love.

Ugh.

I always loved Bradley Cooper. He was my second-favorite thing about Alias. But I was screech if he gets nominated over Jake this year.

Jess said...

"I always loved Bradley Cooper. He was my second-favorite thing about Alias. But I was screech if he gets nominated over Jake this year."

You don't think the Oscars will show some American love and nominate all Americans this year in the lead male category. Bradley stop copying Jake's subway ride PR campaign LOL.

Congrats to Jake and Ahmed, still holding out for Bobbyana's first prediction.

Hagen said...

I'm happy that Jake has been nominated (and the overall very strong result for "Nightcrawler"). It's good to see that his performance is acknowledged. And I'm pretty sure that awards and nominations are important to him.

Surprised Deakins didn't get nominated.
Robert Elswit, but yes, I'm surprised, too.

The Hollywood Reporter: Gotham Awards: Uma Thurman to Host, Jake Gyllenhaal and Meryl Streep Among Presenters
Those evil bastards snubbed him, but he still shows up. Uh?

Chica said...

Congrats to Jake and NC, what great news!

UltraViolet said...

Damn it. I meant Elswit. Also, I meant I "will" screech. I shouldn't post when excited, apparently.

Yeah, I assue Jake knows Dan or Riz is going to win, so that's the award he'll present. Also, he has to campaign while he can. (He did a BAFTA NY screening last week, btw.)

And yes, Cooper, get your own campaign ideas!

Hagen said...

BTW, Jake has been nominated twice. The second nomination is for "Best First Feature" (award given to the director and the producers).

FP said...

Yay!!!
for Jake Riz Dan and all the awardscrawlers!

UltraViolet said...

Remember when Jake was rumored for The Stand. More McBongo.

Oh, well. It sounds like nonsense. And four films of it could be dreadful.

Nightcrawler DVD and video releaseinfo:

Nightcrawler is available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD & DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet™ on February 10, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The film will also be available on Digital HD January 27, 2015.

Bonus Features on Blu-Ray™ and DVD
If It Bleeds, It Leads: A behind-the-scenes "Making Of" Nightcrawler

Feature Commentary with Writer/Director Dan Gilroy, Producer Tony Gilroy, and Editor John Gilroy


I saw an article with Dan Gilroy where she mentioned eight deleted scenes. I hope those are on there, too.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, and yes, I looked for Jake's name as soon as I saw that the film was nominated. Very cool for him to get a producer nomination.

Jake's note to the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

BlueJean said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! :)))

UltraViolet said...

:)

This is nice, if I'm reading/google translating/high-school French translating properly. They describe Jake as the nicest press junketeer ever: Replying in a soft voice to the same question a hundred times, laughing, joking, posing for selfies, charming and sharing his chocolates.

Anonymous said...

Great success and congrats for Indie nominations.

UV what does that broadcast critics note from Jake mean? Nominations are going out in December? Is this something else?SV

Anonymous said...

Oh now I see, I didn't know they receive Critics' Choice Seal of Distinction before noms. SV

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Yes! I was hoping Jake and NC would get some Indy Spirit recognition, congratulations!
These photos are a great find UV, I barely recognize Jake in the first pic!

Piruleta said...

I'm happy for Jake and it's great to see Nightcrawler getting all that recognition. It's a shame they ignored Rene though.

He looks fine (picture), though I hope he'll buy new trousers in celebration of his Independent Spirit Award nominations. :fingers crossed:

Hagen said...

Just Jared: Jake Gyllenhaal looks so hot with his sexy scruff while greeting fans outside of The Late Show with David Letterman studio on Tuesday evening (November 25) in New York City. The 33-year-old actor was on the program to promote his recent movie Nightcrawler and his upcoming Broadway show Constellations.

FP said...

Letterman ‏@Letterman 1 min1
Salmon! Tonight, Jake Gyllenhaal shows Dave his new favorite move. Watch: http://bit.ly/1vOBnbz

LOL!

Anonymous said...

You know what I like though? I read in several articles that Jake doesn't campaign for any awards, he just quietly receives appreciations. This is what I like about whole award stuff, because it is more clear and more deserved in my eyes, than Cumberbatch who is all around with Weinstein behind his back.

On the other hand Weinstein will be my best friend next year while supporting SP. :-))). But anyway any nom for NC sounds me kosher, because it seems like pure performance appreciation and it is not always the case. SV

UltraViolet said...

Letterman was great. I love it when Dave is enthusiastic about Jake's projects. And salmoning - who knew?

Jake will be on Kelly and Michael on December 5.

I hope he'll buy new trousers in celebration of his Independent Spirit Award nominations.

You're such an optimist, Hagen :)

I do have to say that Jake's hair is on point these days, especially when it isn't overly styled.

UltraViolet said...

Jake and his Constellations collaborators on the subway.

HAD EYE SEX W JAKE GYLLENHALL ON THE 1 TRAIN HAPPY THXGIVING EVERYONE

What is going on with Natural History Museums today? London had Attenborough for me to stalk. New York had Jake Gyllenhaal for me to stalk.

I should point out my motivations for stalking those two gentlemen are not the same. 😊

bobbyanna said...

Hope everyone has abeautiful day and Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!


I hope the winter storms out east havent affected your weekend!

Mary said...

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Loved Jake on Letterman great as always.

Supposed to be in the 80's today here in Ca.

My son just moved to Va so he's getting his taste of really cold weather.

Jake on the subway stories & pics - they seem to become more and more spectacular these days! ;) :)

Love reading all of that!

BlueJean said...

Just watched the David Letterman video at IHJ. What was that salmon thing about? It was awkward - sort of ;) Or maybe I just didn't understand.

Other than that, it was fun! :)

Monica said...

Happy thanksgiving!!

Please someone to burn those pants!

Anonymous said...

BJ I can see the salmon thing for a first time as well, but I suppose it should imitate the salmon fish, when it gets between your legs somewhere in the water and probably it pretty burns. I don't know who has invented it. SV

FP said...

I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for Nightcrawler and for my Constellations tickets yay!

That's what I thought, too, but it would already be the third movie with Fuqua.

Other than that, it was fun! :)
I like it that Jake got silly for a moment. He's serious often enough.

Open Road has sent out screeners for "Nightcrawler" (via AwardsWatch).

Hagen said...

Better look at the SAG screeners: picture

Monica said...

first look: Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw

wow Jake!!!

Mary said...

Wow is right Jake looks completely different can't wait to see Southpaw now.

Damn those abs.

Extra said...

He looks incredible! Such a difference from NC.

Hope everyone had a good Turkey day!

Hagen said...

Whoa, that looks creepy. Jake looked slightly chubby in the pictures from the "Everest" set, but transformed his body completely within three months.

I am truly happy for you FP, enjoy Jake and NYC. New York at Christmas time is lovely too with and without Jake.

Enjoy, bring long underwear to keep warm if Jake is not available. LOL.

FP said...

LOL Jess thanks!! You're so lovely,'ll keep in mind your advice! :))

UltraViolet said...

Wow. That is an amazing still from Southpaw. And it's getting quite a lot of attention.

I saw this post in the comments on the Deadline FB post:

Saw movie at arclight with preview audience. Movie was amazing! Jake did his thing. Casting was great also. So believable.

Also, puppy! The dog is adorable.

Hope everyone celebrating had a Happy Thanksgiving.

OH.MY.GOD. That's all I can say right now.

Oh great, a lot of time to watch "Constellations" and explore the city. Enjoy youself in New York, FP!

"Nightcrawler" will be shown at the Academy Screenings in Aspen.

I literally have no words, that Southpaw pic is RIDICULOUS! Can't wait, Jake is on such a roll these days! There's finally a coming soon poster in Dubai for NC!

Jess - enjoy Constellations and NYC, it's the best city in the world, with the best man in the world.

Jake was nominated for best actor and Dan Gilroy for best screenplay at the Satellite Awards!!

That's great news, Monica! Congrats to Jake and Dan Gilroy!


The Golden Globes will announce their nominations on Dec. 11th. Jake's play starts previews on Dec.13th. The GG awards show will be on Jan.11th and the play opens on Jan 13th, I think. So, hopefully, Jake will get nominated,and he'll be able to participate.

Hagen said...

"Nightcrawler" is doing well in Australia (#3 at the box office) and in France (#4).

Jess said...

Lainey has pictures of Jake from today, full beard. And I see Lainey's point about Fuqua acting as if he discovered Jake's manhood.

I think Jake has already shown he has "balls". I know Jake considers Fuqua a good friend and maybe Fuqua meant it "role" wise but his comments dismissed Jake's other roles old and new. Jarhead, BBM, Prisoners and Nightcrawler, I guess Jake was just getting his feet wet for the more manly roles? Geesh.

NYFCCA

Best Picture: Boyhood
Best Director: Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
Best First Film: Jennifer Kent (The Babadook)
Best Actress: Marion Cotillard (for The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night)
Best Actor: Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner)
Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)
Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)
Best Screenplay: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Best Cinematography: Darius Khondji (The Immigrant)
Best Animated Film: The Lego Movie
Best Foreign Language Film: Ida
Best Nonfiction Film: Citizenfour
Special Award: Adrienne Mancia


What a shame they don't announce also nominations, just winners. Usually they match the most with Oscar winners. It would be interesting to see nominees as well. Timoty Spall is surprise for me btw. But he seems quite strong player in the award season and also David Oleyowo.

Congrats to Jake for Sat. nomination, looking forward to Golden Globe announcement. I still hope in nomination in drama category. SV

Jess said...

Congratulations to Jake and the rest of Nighcrawler for the Satellite and Spirit nominations.

Monica said...

SV, the biggest surprise for me was to see Birdman snubbed.
Spall was surprised too, but I read that NY loves Mike Leigh. He always wins something there, so ... but as said, Redford won there and was not nominated for the Oscar.
Unbroken is with 50% on the RT. This was the favorite to win, oh, well ...
I bet it will receive manynominations at the GG.

Anonymous said...

Monica I don't understand that Unbroken mess around. It was not even seen yet in US, just few releases outside and they predict director, picture and lead actor nominations. I am not surprise about 50% on RT, because it is too pretentious in advance, I am afraid it will be too clichΓ© movie with score, which plays with emotions. I think Boyhood is a dark horse, 100% RT. SV

UltraViolet said...

Fuqua's comments are annoying, have been annoying and will probably continue to be annoying. Let's just hope he has a defter hand behind the camera.

I'm pulling for Jake to win the National Board of Review award. They were the only major American body to award him for BBM. Probably won't happen but fingers crossed. Glad for the ISA and the Satellite award nominations so far.

Apologies for being absent this weekend. I had a Thanksgiving post semi-ready to go, then the days got away from me.
