Now Playing Tracks

A new synopsis for Southpaw, Jake’s new film about to be shot in Pennsylvania, has been released:

“Cocky, aggressive, volatile middleweight champion Billy Hope (Mr. Gyllenhaal) fully expects to ride out his career with his massive winnings, adoring fans, beloved wife, Maureen, and their 10-year-old daughter, Leila.

When Billy’s temper triggers a fight and then a shootout that leaves Maureen dead, Billy finds his life spiraling out of control. After he loses his house, money and then, Leila, to a group foster home, he begins to find his way back to some kind of balance with the help of amateur trainer Titus “Tick” Willis.

Tick has his own demons but he proves to be the perfect trainer to make Billy a better fighter, man and father. Forest Whitaker has been rumored for Tick but no casting for the role has been confirmed.” 

Remember that you can still try to be an extra.

A propos of this, for those of you who want to know more about James Baldwin’s life and writing, don’t miss this amazing article from The New Yorker I’ve just found. 

Last but not least, not sure if this is a new interview (I doubt it) but if there’s someone out there willing to translate from Dutch they’re welcome to share. Thank you!

I kind of like this caricature.

I know what you’re all thinking. Something along the lines of ‘huh?’, ‘the hell?’, ‘seriously? we’re all talking about what he did and GC comes out with what, biceps?!’

Well yes, biceps. Because I don’t even want to mention what the rest of the world has been shouting for joy about these past two days, I’m that brokenhearted.

Just kidding.

NOT!

Luckily that glorious, manly, soft (oh yes I’m sure it was soft *sigh*), rebellious Beard that Jake dared to shave *gasps* usually grows back quickly so it’s just a matter of waiting and seeing how long he’ll resist the submission to the daily routine of *gasps * shaving.

And anyway, among the myriad of tweets and FB and Instagrams and blogs and forum posts and all other means of information-sharing, carrier pigeons included, no one and I mean no-one deigned to mention that something else had grown along with what Jake shamelessly disposed of *gasps* and that’s…his biceps.  OK, will you look again at this and forget about his chin for a moment? See? biceps. Capital B-iceps. That’s all I want to focus on and I’ll ignore the rest until I finish sulking (I usually act more maturely than this but I’m traumatized and therefore entitled to be silly).

This rather idiotic post is obviously just an excuse to celebrate something that I’m already missing, with the hope that it’ll return back where it belongs soon, namely on Jake’s face. I mean, honestly folks, what’s there NOT to like?

Not to talk about these very good points (which my friend Sasha kindly shared with me)

Look, it’s not like I would kick Det. Loki out of my bed, I’m not THAT idiotic.

Especially if he resembles Jack Twist so much

Speaking of Jack Twist, I got chills down my spine reading about the boots Jake wore and apparently brought home from the set of Brokeback Mountain: ‘It didn’t feel right to leave them’, he said. Shame on me that I didn’t know about this.

Jake Gyllenhaal ‘In Conversation’

Jake Gyllenhaal ‘In Conversation’ at Columbia University

Yesterday night Jake Gyllenhaal and writer Colm Tòibìn were at Columbia University for a celebration of essayist, playwright, iconic writer James Baldwin, and a reading of his masterpiece ‘Another Country’. How I wish I were there. I hope someone caught in on tape, it must have been an inspiring, thought provoking conversation. And if you haven’t read this book please do so.  ‘Giovanni’s Room’…

PHAMOUS NOBODYZ - Jake Gyllenhaal is getting ready to fight

PHAMOUS NOBODYZ – Jake Gyllenhaal is getting ready to fight

I don’t care for boxe and Jake’s next film Southpaw is not one I’m looking forward to (sorry Jake) but these photos taken in Las Vegas where apparently our guy is spending some time trying out his fists and watching boxers on the ring are worth a post. My friend The Beard looks trimmed. Not so much the hair but the bear look is gone and he looks as handsome as ever.
