Prophecy Girl Live-Blogs Jake Gyllenhaal on The Early Show! Plus, Jimmy Fallon!

Before we get started, here's Jake's interview from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night:


Today's patented "Interview Moment When Jake's Quotes This Blog" comes at the 5:56 mark, when Jake says, "He can say anything and people will take it seriously...  Sometimes he just speaks nonsense..."  And even though he says this about Sir Ben Kingsley, it's hardly a coincidence that this is precisely what I said about Jake a couple of days ago.

And here we go!

UPDATE:  Video's up.


7:50 - The hosts of the show wage war with Jake action figures.  Complete with sound effects!

7:57 - The local news?  Seriously?!

8:02 - And...now we're talking about sunscreen.  Jake, who is "as hot as they get in Hollywod these days," will be on "in a few minutes."

8:11 - Jake's up next!  He's sitting complacently in the studio, but I missed part of that because there was a spider in my shirt and I had to freak out for a minute.

8:13 - It's Jake!  (Or rather, it's Jake being introduced.)

8:14 - Prince of Persia clip, which is a different one this time.  (I think.)

8:15 - The interviewer's name is Maggie as is Jake's sister's.  This must be discussed.

8:16 - Maggie whips out her action figure and...then there's a second action figure...and now the action figures are dancing...

8:16 - "What a huge change of pace!" Maggie says, regarding Jake's complete 180 in movie roles to take on this Prince of Persia thing, and not necessarily her excitement over getting to play with action figures on a news program.  Jake tells us (again) that he really doesn't want us to take him seriously.

8:17 - Jake discusses the horror of being objectified for his "buff abs and arms."

8:17 - Maggie, who came prepared with a newspaper for background reading, quotes Mike Newell, who said that he thought Jake was the "thinking woman's action hero."  Jake responds:  "I would hope every woman is thinking."  (This week, Jake has gone from quoting me, to quoting himself from recent interviews, to now quoting himself from ancient interviews.) 

8:18 - Jake digs on Sex in the City II, and then, because he reads all of my entries, he references my post from last night and calls Prince of Persia "more authentic" though not necessarily more realistic.

8:18 - The banner at the bottom brazenly reads "Pumped-up Prince" while Jake describes his deep, deep fear of ostriches and their pea-sized brains.

8:19 - Jake admits that he played the original Prince of Persia video game, but he disliked it so much that it was 20 years before he was able to bring himself to pick it back up again.

8:19 - Maggie asks Jake about his upcoming stage project, which catches Jake off-guard because he has no upcoming stage project.  He recovers by talking about Love and Other Drugs.

8:20 - Maggie brings out a City Slickers clip in which Young Jake takes off his shirt.  I can't really explain it, but somehow this interview has suddenly gotten really, really awkward.

8:20 - And it's over!

And here endeth the Prince of Persia live-blogs, which makes me kind of sad, though I must give Jake many kudos for being consistently entertaining in that many interviews in a row.  (I'm tired after just watching them all.)  I'll update this entry with the video as soon as I can find it...

What? No comments? I think everyone is in lockdown mode prepping for PoP. Don't I get the day off from work tomorrow? Any day that Jake releases a movie should be a worldwide holiday.

Are you freaking psychic?! Thanks a lot for spoiling the headline for tomorrow's post, which I just wrote.

Yeah, I know, it's been very, very quiet today. Calm before the storm (I hope)??

It's okay everyone, im back. Sorry i was just out at the cinema watching this really small unknown movie named Prince of Persia. You can all stop paniking now!!!

Did anyone notice that Maggie said "nice to meet you" when at the beginning she was surprised he remembered her name. Oops slip up there Maggie.

And im loving these stories. He seems so happy at the moment and ive never known him to share so much of himself and his past. GO GYLLS!!!

Aww. I ruin posts. *hangs head* Wait, does that get a merit badge?? ;D

Prophecy Girl May 28, 2010 at 11:28 AM  

It might just be merit badge-worthy! I feel like there have been a lot of merit badge-earning things going on lately but I haven't had time to make any merit badges. I should probably go back next week and reassess Excellence In Gyllenhaalism from the past few days and reward people accordingly. ;)

Sam, agreed! He's so much more open this time around (and about time!).
