Promo still Nightcrawling along
Jake Gyllenhaal and Dan Gilroy continue to promote Nightcrawler. Jake appeared on The Daily Show:
The duo appeared on Charlie Rose. (Video to come.) And from these photos, it looks like they were also on Morning Joe?
You can see the camaraderie and respect when jake and Dan appear together:
Jake's great gift, from an interview with Dan and Tony Gilroy:
DEADLINE: Jake Gyllenhaal’s character was too frantic to be robotic, but this was one odd, ruthless, soulless fellow. Where did you find that character?
DAN GILROY: The doorway was all these young people out there, desperate for work. My first instinct was to create a hero, but I realized an anti-hero took the story in a more fulfilling way. Jake read the script and we had a long dinner while he shot Prisoners. It became apparent we were completely in tune and wanted to explore not necessarily the sociopathic tendencies of the character, but to try to create an inner landscape. This is Jake’s great gift. He immersed himself in this character and made him human. The loneliness, that frantic desire for an outsider to connect and communicate with people, but somehow it never comes out right. I don’t know what it is he does, but you can’t take your eyes off him. Even when he’s doing horrible things he can be charming. He got so lost in this part in such a great way, it was remarkable to watch.
The interview is an interesting look at the Gilroy family and their history and creative process. (Brother John edited NC, and Tony was a producer.)
It's impossible to keep up with all the interviews and appearances. But here's a random assortment of ones that stood out or seemed interesting to me:
