Another Long, Revealing Interview with Jake!

It's Jake!  In his element!  Which is lengthy, involved interviews in which he gives extensive, introspective answers about deeply personal issues!  (This is how we all know him so well.)

HAHA, just kidding.  Jake is none of those things in interviews, ever.  (Except introspective.)  But this is part of the reason why he is so great.  Even though this interview is a joke, it is fantastic.

In other guffaw-inducing news, some fine former classmate of Jake's just bestowed this incredible gift upon the internet:

He was quite a catch in his youth, no?

And because there is absolutely no cohesive theme whatsoever to this post (aside from "Things That Make Prophecy Girl Laugh"), IHJ's on top of things again with these half-a-decade-old gems:

Some days I have lots to say.  Other days, I let Jake's existence do the talking for me...

Oh wow. It's Wayne Slalinski(sp?) before he shrunk his kids.

That picture is way too friggin' funny. I'm printing that out and putting it on my desk for daily enjoyment. :D

Becky Heineke August 5, 2010 at 2:13 PM  

I have been laughing over that picture ALL DAY. (I'm a horrible person who laughs at small children.)

I disagree, I think that video is very revealing...revealing of Jake's hot dorky side. Probably my favorite Jake ever.

OMG I laughed so much when I saw the last picture .....

but I wouldn't be disappointed if he would finally come out of the closet of Oz - how can someone disappear like he does??? *lol*

Totally love that LONG interview, what a completely lovable goof.

That pic of him in what, maybe 4th grade? That is way too precious for words. Ooooh, it just makes me wanna hug him & squeeze him!

& Mo, you got that dead on with the look! Haha, Rick Moranis as a little kid, too funny. ^_^

& OMG, that last pic, I wanna know WHO managed to take that Polaroid of him anyway??? One thing's for sure, that ain't no pap pic, woot!

Sam August 5, 2010 at 5:53 PM  

He is such a dork and i love it! (refering to the video, the childhood photo and the last one too!)

Becky Heineke August 5, 2010 at 7:03 PM  

So much dorkiness in one post! :D Yeah, I have no idea what's going on with that last picture. It's from a set from the Toronto International Film Festival when BBM premiered, but all of the other photos are pretty formal. There are some really good ones of the whole cast (here), but considering the tone of the post, I thought it best to stick with pictures of Jake-only today. ;)

Katie,  August 5, 2010 at 11:51 PM  

Totally unrelated, plus this is the only place people will understand the excitement involved:

My copy of Highway just arrived in the mail...prepping to plop myself down and watch it. No I haven't seen it yet (yes, shame) but I'm excited. I'm also expecting Moonlight Mile from Netflix hopefully tomorrow. After which I'll have seen 98% of all Jake movies ever released.

Vanessa August 5, 2010 at 11:57 PM  

Yay Katie! Beep, perfect score, gold star!

Highway has now become one of my all time favorite Jake movies. I could literally watch it a gazillion times. It is now #3 on my list with BBM still #1 & PoP #2. You should love MM, I thought it was an excellent movie. I swear he can't make a bad movie. >;-)

I have Highway waiting at home for me when I return in the USA and MM on netflix as well!

I'm also in the 90% range for Jake movies.


Becky Heineke August 6, 2010 at 10:48 AM  

Katie, I can't wait to hear what you think of both! Of the two, I prefer MM to Highway, but I think I'm in the minority on that. ;)

And same to you, KD, when you get home! It's quite exciting that there is uncharted Jake territory for you to explore yet. :D

Here I sit at the other end of a marvelous trek through the films of Jake Gyllenhaal.

I would say my favorites are still Jarhead and Brothers.

But, and perhaps this is my bias talking, I thought Jake was amazing in all his movies. In Moonlight Mile, he was so adorable and so endearing and just MMM. I am a little upset about the Ellen Pompeo thing. (I've never EVER cared for her) Plus I loved the soundtrack.

I completed my trek with Highway. It was undoubtedly one I was most excited about since I'm a huge Jared Leto fan. (not that it overshadows Jake in any way) It was such a different role for Jake (although different is sort of the common denominator of all his roles) but he was still so good. I can see why it made many of your Top 5s. Its one of those quirky movies like Empire Records I have such a fondness for.

Vanessa August 7, 2010 at 3:35 PM  

Katie, glad to hear you liked Highway, I also love Leto & have since I first saw him way back in the '90's, so I was really a fan of his before Jake's, (sorry Jake, but Leto is 9 yrs older). He is just so beautiful & can also sing, check out his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, although you probably already have since you're a fan of his. I posted a review of his band on my blog the other day if you're ever interested in reading it.

I do believe my favorite scene in MM is when he says his piece at the table about burying his GF. That was priceless & perfect Gyllenhaal acting. & I so agree, he is amazing in ALL his movies.

Becky Heineke August 8, 2010 at 1:05 PM  

Katie, so was that the final frontier? Have you seen all of Jake's movies now?? 'Cause if so, awesome! :D

I'm so glad you liked them both!! I agree with Vanessa on her favorite scene in MM. And what I think is so crazy about Highway is (exactly like you were saying) how incredibly different it is from Jake's other roles, and particularly Jake's other roles at that time in his career. To think, that was also around his Donnie Darko and Bubble Boy era. He definitely did not fall into that common young-star trap of being type-cast. ;)

Vanessa August 8, 2010 at 2:16 PM  

PG, that was also around the time he filmed his few scenes in Lovely & Amazing. Haha, loved "17" yr old Jordan! Too funny. I would have fallen for Jordan like Michelle did if he had come on to me that same way too... He was SO charming!

I think the school photo of Jake was around the time his father forced him to be a tube of toothpaste for Halloween.
