Apologies and a Jake’s schedule update
I’ve been silent for a while, as I’m sure one or two of you might have noticed (just kidding, I know there are at least three people out there still reading, I have proof).
Something very scary happened with my blog and I’ve been debating for the past few days whether to keep it running or close it. After a long inner quarrel that a schizophrenic would be jealous about I’ve come to the conclusion that everything we’re given in life comes with an expiry date so keeping that in mind I’ve decided to be philosophical about it and stay a little longer.
Things (and tweets) seem to have quieted down on the Jake front, which can mean a few things: they’re shooting indoor scenes, the security crew is doing a good job or the initial frenzy was maybe not really arranged but probably welcomed by the production that decided to let the guard down for the few days necessary to hook people’s attention.
…and in the meantime the guys at Pathé International have started watching the rushes of it the other day…
…so they are presently probably going over scenes that need to be re-shot before the final editing starts. Is it me or does it seem like yesterday that we first heard that Jake was in talks for this film? Boy, time sure flies.
I very much doubt Jake will stay in Toronto until the 14th since he’s expected in San Diego that same day at the Comic-Con for an End of Watch early look that he will attend with co-star Michael Peña
12:45-1:45 Open Road Films: End of Watch and Silent Hill: Revelations 3D—Global exclusive! Catch an early look at the highly anticipated action film End of Watch, with special guests Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña who play police officers patrolling the meanest streets of south central Los Angeles, and writer/director David Ayer (Training Day).
Jake is not new to the Comic-Con, I’m sure you don’t need to be reminded of how he looked at the WonderCon of 2010 in San Francisco for the Prince of Persia promotion (I didn’t choose a picture from that day for my Twitter page background for anything)
After the Comic-Con event Jake will presumably fly back to New York to start rehearsal for his much awaited American stage debut.
Speaking of which, I had a few chats with the guys at the Roundabout Theatre and I have to say that they are a great team, they not only work hard (even on the 4th!) but they are very patient and kind and helpful and they managed to keep calm even after my umpteenth attempt to draw out a date for the tickets sale to the general public. Which they eventually told me. If you are interested to know when to mark your calendars, DM me on my Twitter page or my Tumblr page and I’ll be happy to share the great news with you. Since this date has not been made public yet I prefer to keep it private until the Roundabout Theatre will advertise it on their website.
I have updated my INTERVIEWS page with a lovely old radio interview. I was listening to it the other day and that’s probably the reason why I’m still here. Go listen to it.
Last but not least, here’s a footage of Jake (from the DVD extras, so nothing new) having his hair cut for Jarhead. What I love the most about this few seconds vid is what the lady has to say about Jake. So true. Oh, and also his cute giggle fits. A friend of mine reminded me about this video while he was helping me shaving my hair this morning.
