Oh, Come On, Jake. You Had Your Chance.

I guess hope really does spring eternal.

Confession:  I did not realize that Jake had already started his television rounds to promote Love & Other Drugs because, er, I haven't been paying that much attention.  At all.  

So imagine my surprise when I turned on the Today Show this morning and there was Jake, thumb wrestling with Anne Hathaway and talking about being naked all the time.  "Fine, I'll watch you," I said to my television, but only because it was already on and the timing was weirdly coincidental.

Then I saw online that he was on David Letterman's show last night.  YouTube reaction?  Decidedly mixed:

Based on that, I *had* to hit 'play' to see what I was missing...

And Jesus.

To sum up, I ignore Jake, whine about losing Prince William, and the next freaking day, Jake is all over late night television talking about his love of running.

Now, Jake?  NOW you think it's a good time to start acting like you have a passion for running?  Saying things like, "I'm soooo going to run a marathon one day," like you didn't already know that I've been saying for months that that's my next goal.  Being all, "I really love running 8 to 10 miles," as if this wasn't my exact ideal distance.  Talking about barefoot running like you're hardcore as if it were mere chance that a major reason I haven't been paying attention is because I've been spending all of my spare time selling my damned book starring Jake Gyllenhaal to hardcore runners.

And then he mocked his own beard and hello, it's only one of my great talents in life to mock Jake's beard.  Basically he has spent the entire past 24 hours trying to get my attention.

So...well played, Gyllenhaal.  Granted it will take more than charming David Letterman and Meredith Vieira to make me really believe you still care about me but...well played nonetheless.

He wants me.
(In case you didn't click on every link in this entry, Jake is on Letterman HERE [part 1] and HERE [part 2], and on Today HERE.  Many thanks to Vanessa for being infinitely more of top of things than I was. :))

I didn't know Jake was on Today, but I did record him on Live with Regis and Kelly. I'm loving all of the promotion!

Becky Heineke November 18, 2010 at 3:17 PM  

Was he on Regis and Kelly today?! I thought that was tomorrow. Wow am I out of it!!

Love those mixed youtube comments. haha, some of the people that comment on YT are as bad as the ones that comment on imdb. & why oh why does he always mess with you PG & make you crazy? He just knows how to push your buttons, doesn't he?

Whoo-hoo, loved all the talk shows that he's been on so far. If nothing else, the man is damn funny as well as gorgeous. I see YT already worked their evil & took away the embedding ability from 2 of the vids. They are just stupid, since all we have ever done is help promote the movie anyway.

FYI, I really don't think he meant that he was growing Dill really big for a role in a movie which I noticed was being discussed on another site. He mentioned it in the beginning when Dave said it, but I believe he was kidding like he does. He did say he didn't want to shave & actually said his people were bugging him about it, since he would need to be making the talk show rounds for LAOD promos. I guess we shall see soon enough. ^_^

Becky, dont you see... he is talking about running to appeal to the running audience which you have a connection with which will make you sell more books. He is HELPING you!!

Oh, Becky,
I know you pride yourself on being somewhat old school, but you really need to get a Tivo and have a Jake wishlist auto-record. Yeah, it gets Celebrity Deathmatch and the occasional non-sequiter, but SO worth it!
You can speed right through awards shows, and then obsess via the back-up-5-seconds-button over every Jake-a-licious detail. Am I selling it?

Very well played, Gyll. I see what you did there.

Call Me Mo November 19, 2010 at 12:33 PM  

Aww Sam is right. Jake must've read your book and now it helping you sell it. So nice of him. So nice.

Becky Heineke November 19, 2010 at 1:28 PM  

SON OF A BITCH. (I'm just now getting around to watching the Regis and Kelly interview and all the sudden) HE LOVES WILLIAM, TOO.

Goddamn you, Gyllenhaal! Catering to all of my interests in life... I hope this sells me some books, boy. :D

(Tankergirl, you present a good argument...I feel that the day I start getting paycheck again will be the day my entertainment intake methods will change dramatically. :D)

Becky Heineke November 19, 2010 at 1:29 PM  

Clearly that should be "a paycheck." I blame sleep deprivation and Harry Potter overload for my inability to type today. :)
