An Enemy: Jake is in Toronto, filming is about to begin.
It was March 20, 2012 when Variety announced that Jake was in negotiations for a film based on José Saramago’s novel The Double, remember? Two months have slowly passed and Jake is indeed in Toronto where filming on that very movie begins tomorrow and will keep going through mid-July.
Canadian twitters have been kind to us sharing sightings of Jake and/or the Beard. Speaking of which, it looks like Jake gave it a trim.
With this result:
Now, I don’t know about you but to me this looks like a pretty damn good result.
Anyway, you know I prefer not to post paps’ pictures of Jake or his family, but I’ve made an exception for this one taken yesterday in NY because this could well be Jake’s last picture with the Beard. Tertuliano and his double Antonio, in fact (or Adam and Anthony, the name of Jake’s characters in the film) do not wear a beard until they are compelled to do so (I won’t say more) so I think this time we fuzzy-bearded-Jake lovers have got to brace ourselves and prepare to say a very sad goodbye. *sigh* But then again, there could be major changes in the script so I really don’t know what’s in the cards for the Beard 😉 I’m sure our fellow Canadian Gyllenhaal enthusiasts will keep us posted.
On a happier note, UV found this on Facebook. I think it’s hilarious:
“Met Brandon Phillips, Drew Stubbs and Jay Bruce of the Reds, watched baseball, got a break. Then saw Tyson Beckford and Jake Gyllenhaal while out, went back to Fan Cave to watch more baseball and did a radio interview. The A’s are currently losing. Horrible day. ;)”

“I retained nothing of this post except that you saw Jake Gyllenhaal.”
“Yah, most women zeroed in on that part too.”
To wrap this post up I’ve chosen a series of pictures by photographer Henry Leutwyler which I admit I had never seen before.
In 2007, Esquire honored with a double cover its actors of the year, namely Denzel Washington, Cate Blanchett, Javier Bardem (yes, I have a thing for him), Jake (for Rendition), Robert Downey Jr. (for Zodiac) and Emile Hirsch.
Don’t you think Javier and Jake’s expressions are hysterical? Especially the last one, with Javier and the little dog for the second cover. I was LOL’ing at the screen, so not cool.
Here is the link to a Portfolio of Portraits, by Henry Leutwyler. Stunning shots, including a beautiful one of Jake.
See you very soon for more news from the set of AN ENEMY, folks!
