Jake on Late Show
Updated with the two clips with Jake from the Late Show with Dave Letterman (courtesy of IHJ)
It’s that time of an actor’s career again: promotion time! It’s even more exciting this year, I’m not sure why. Probably because there’s so much more to look forward to, the promotion for ‘End of Watch’ being just the beginning; the opening of ‘It There Is’ is in just a few weeks, then there will be ‘An Enemy’ (can’t wait for that!) and probably another film, if Mississippi Grind will be confirmed. Not bad at all.
New York based Dave Letterman’s Late Show is just around the corner for Jake now, so yesterday he and The Beard along with The Slicked Back Hair made their jointed appearance at the Ed Sullivan Theater.
A brief clip for now, the entire show can be seen here (Jake is the first guest).
I love how he keeps fastening and unfastening his suits’ buttons, the ‘buttoning etiquette’ is not unknown to him and that’s a fact. If you’re too young to know about such etiquette, let me quote this from Wikipedia (it’s something that sooner or later you boys will need to know):
Single-breasted suit coats may be either fastened or unfastened. In two-button suits the bottom button is traditionally left unfastened except with certain unusual cuts of jacket.
When fastening a three-button suit, the middle button is fastened, and the top one sometimes, but the bottom is traditionally not designed to be (although in the past some jackets were cut so that it could be fastened without distorting the drape, this is not the case with current clothing).
With a single-breasted suit, it is proper to have the buttons unfastened while sitting down to avoid an ugly drape. A good double-breasted suit is usually able to be left buttoned, to avoid the difficulty of constantly redoing inner buttons when standing up.
Everything clear? 😉
There was a press screening of End of Watch yesterday in San Francisco and judging from Tweets and Facebook posts, reactions are pretty good. Just a few:
