QUOTE OF THE WEEK! AND MORE!

"Occasionally, I'd pick up the lifeguard buoy and run down the beach 'Baywatch'-style, like something was actually happening."

- Jake Gyllenhaal, master lifeguard. It's nice to know he did more than just pee on people's legs to earn his paycheck. Ha ha ha!! Sorry...

Hey, how about some random trivia to go with that quote (courtesy of notstarring.com)?

Roles that didn't happen for the Gyllenhaal:

American Beauty


Jake Gyllenhaal auditioned for the role of Ricky Fitts.
Actor who got the part: Wes Bentley

Batman Begins

Jake Gyllenhaal was runner up to play Batman if Christian Bale could not do it.
Actor who got the part: Christian Bale

Moulin Rouge

Gyllenhaal auditioned for the part of Christian, but was ultimately turned down because he looked too young to star opposite Nicole Kidman.
Actor who got the part: Ewan McGregor

The Patriot

Jake Gyllenhaal was considered to play Gabriel Martin (Heath Ledger)
Actor who got the part: Heath Ledger

Spider-Man 2

He was offered the role after Tobey McGuire was injured; he was even screentested with a suit, according to a rumor.
Actor who got the part: Tobey McGuire

Superman Returns

According to teenhollywood, Gyllenhaal was considered for the role of Superman.
Actor who got the part: Brandon Routh

Quite interesting. Some of these I knew, some not so much. After seeing Superman Returns, I'm quite disappointed he didn't get that part. I think he would have filled out the cape nicely. And Batman?? Oh, baby.

In other news, our boy is being beaten mercilessly in the worst poll in the history of polls. I'm blaming this on the fact that more people saw Failure to Launch than Jarhead. I'm just thankful we Jake Watchers have the support of each other to get us through these harsh times.

And speaking of links, heads up to our French agents that Jake and Lance are staying at the Hotel de Crillon.

I'm fairly certain this is a nicer hotel than any I have ever stayed in in my entire life. It looks like freaking Buckingham Palace. Not that I'm jealous or anything...

Jake as Superman- not much acting required there then!

JoyceDavenport said...

Oh - also it seems that IHJ didn't have a thread on the worst poll in the world- so I started one- once the IHJ posse get moving watch those numbers change!

Agnes said...

As the agent I am I have now voted for Jake :)

Prophecy Girl said...

Awesome, guys. I'm doing my voting duties myself to try to stop this mockery of a hotness poll. Strength in numbers!

Kendra said...

How could Jake lose against Brandon Routh in Superman? Whenever I see the big "S" on the blue costume, I think in the "Sex".

JoyceDavenport said...

Update- you can apparently vote multiple times on the poll- I must hve voted about 20-30 by now!
'Agent Ing' as he is now reporting in as on Jake's eyelashes over at Dave Cullen says he has been lurking near Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat- where Lance's villa is for a couple of days now. No sign of Jake obviously as he apears to be in Paris- but he is on site. Says there are lots of rumours among the locals about the visit so he obviously has his ear to the ground!

phoebe said...

What the f..?! I just voted, and how the hell can McConaughey lead by that much?! Wait, let me re-phrase that. How can he be in the lead at all?! Seriously. It's a travesty!

mrs_dalloway said...

I have voted so many times that my mouse needs a break! I can't just sit and see how a Matthew is gaining over The Jake.

The Bearded Lady said...

I see Agent Fifi and her french maid costume,came through for us!
That Hotel de Crillon is a palace!
Pity we couldn't afford to keep Fifi in better accommodations...sleeping standing up in a broom closet ...was above and beyond the call of duty...

So now it's just a matter of waiting for the transcriptions from our room bugs...
Those french translators do take their sweet time! *sigh*

Fifi we salute you!...someday your whole story can be told... a proud chapter in the history of the JW
resistance!
Viva la France! Viva la Fifi!

~DKBB~ said...

Love the quote, PG. And the things you are digging up on our little Gyllenwolf are fun and enlightening. Keep up the good work! Oh, and that poll....been voting like a mad woman, I have!

Anonymous said...

Yes, Lance has said that the Hotel de Crillon has his business for the rest of his life for the support (for example, they would drape a gigantic Texas flag over the front of it on the last day) it has shown him in the Tours. He will never stay anywhere else when he's in Paris. :)

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Matthew McConnonnoggle? Really? Is this some kind of joke? First of all, NO ONE has a hotter body than the G. And especially not him. Voting has commenced.

Anna said...

OK, I've voted. Remember that Jakey says it's sexy to vote!


(Wow, that's a lot of sex at the same time; voting, sexy body, The Sex...)

;-)

JoyceDavenport said...

Hey we are a dedicated bunch- I include IHJ and the 'lashers- Matt is down from 74 to 62 and Jake is up from 22 to 35.

Prophecy Girl said...

Oh, thank God he's gaining on him! It seriously made me a bit sick to see how far behind he was. Jake, don't worry! We've got your back!

Anonymous said...

I've been watching the Jake numbers climb thanks to us devoted here and at IHJ. (I alone voted over 20 times haha) I can't believe what a landslide Matthew had at the start.

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh that rag "Intouch" is outta touch....what is it a spin-off from US magazine?
They should sick to diet tips and recipes...really

Does anyone subscribe to it?
or do they give you a free copy with a large grocery purchase?
I'd rather Green Stamps.

It's "Bay Watch style" not "Bay Way".

The Bearded Lady said...

Stick not sick...I'm so upset with this poll I can't see straight.

wtbgirl said...

McBongo's lead in that poll has slipped considerably, although he's still way ahead ... it's just not right.

moonbeams said...

EVIDENCE OF JAKE'S DIVINITY:
Gawker Stalker has Jake at the Post Office on Prince Street on the morning of the 21st. Sine he was reported in both Cap Ferrat and Paris, the only possible explanation is that he was in (at least) two places at once, further evidence of his god-like qualities!Is it possible he raced back to the post office anticipating the delivery of t-shirts?

The Bearded Lady said...

There is a period of time between the Alps sighting and the Hotel de Crillon sighting on the 23rd...
Did they steal away to Nice then?
Was the igloo woman with them?....we just don't know as of yet...no alpine agents reporting
and yes Jake I hope you were sending Miss Bearded Lady a postcard...you are so thoughtful...I'll be checking my mailbox daily.

msdonniedarko said...

IM VOTING! any how i do think that jake wouldve made any of those movies better but i like the fact that he seems to be in movies that are differnt

Prophecy Girl said...

It's "Bay Watch style" not "Bay Way".

Hooray for glaring typos (typoes?). Sorry about that.

Gawker Stalker has Jake at the Post Office on Prince Street on the morning of the 21st.

Obviously Jake is exhibiting god-like behaviors. It really was only a matter of time. And I'm sure he was just dropping us another update...

msdonniedarko said...

matthew sucks balls!

Prophecy Girl said...

41/56? Now that's what I'm calling progress!! :D

jack nasty girl said...

That Hotel de Crillon is one of the best in town...the other one is Ritz
whoa...Paaaaris!...I'm a bit jealous...I love Paris so much :)
Jake has such a good time in the center of the town...there are so many fantastic places near Place de la Concorde...what a romantic place

msdonniedarko said...

damn i have voted like 20 times and it still says 41% i think matthew has it rigged!!!!! not fair for jake at all!

mrs_dalloway said...

Yes,indeed. I think Paris is one of the best choices in Europe..maybe he'll consider visiting other countries as well,if he enjoys le Paris..and I think he does..he should send us some holiday pictures. Him at the Eiffel Tour, him in front of the Louvre Museum,him naked anywhere..

phoebe said...

44/53! Yeehaw, people, we're getting there! :-D

I, for one, have been voting as if my life was depending on it. I'm mad.

Anonymous said...

The best hotel in Paris has to be George V. Jake must consider staying there in the future, nothing but the best suits him.

Anonymous said...

I think this is one of thos polls that measures which celebrity's fans have the best robots. Or the most time on their hands!

dani said...

I really think theses polls are fixed also. For some reason the editors at US, IN TOUCH and PEOPLE have some bizarre fascination with Matt. How else could he be the "sexiest man alive"?
The general public that reads this crap on a regular basis is not as aware of Jake as we are. Plus, Matt is always running aound with his shirt off- something Jake needs to do more of.
Once more people actually saw the perfection that is Jake's body, no way would Matt even be in the race. It's up to us to stop this nonsense.

Nothing Really Matters said...

"It looks like freaking Buckingham Palace"

Maybe the Queen owns it! It does look very much like it!

msdonniedarko said...

man ive been voting like crazy and i know you all have been too why is it at 44%? its freaking rigged i tell ya!

jack nasty girl said...

Maybe Matt is for the general public and Jake is for us...for the elite
lol ;)

wtbgirl said...

I'd agree with anon 11:33 - I think the Four Seasons George V Paris is considered to be the best hotel in Paris, although where Jake and Lance are staying doesn't look too shabby - LOL! I went on the website - you should SEE what the suites look like (imagining Jake lounging around in there - YUM). It's nice to have beaucoup bucks!

kokodee said...

Re:Jake vs Matthew
Jake didn't seem to mind first time
round, but he did declare that he would win a battle of the chefs!

mrs_dalloway said...

It's up to 45%! it works! come on,ladies and gentlemen..the more I look at Matt's face,the more I want Jake to win.BY FAR!

dani said...

I like what you said, jack nasty girl.

msdonniedarko said...

that hotel is sooo nice omg!

wtbgirl said...

The poll is now 52% McBongo, 46% Jake - c'mon agents - McBongo and his hairplugs are going down!

msdonniedarko said...

The Bearded Lady said...

C'est si Bon....all that Louis 14th furniture and floor length windows....it was almost like camping...

only1annabel said...

That has to be my favorite quote of Jake's! He's a funny boy!
Gonna spend the rest of my eveing voting for Jake on that silly poll!

And as for the films he missed out on...I'd still love to see him in a musical, how sexy would an all-singing-all-dancing Jakey be!!

mrs_dalloway said...

Oooh..camping! that's my thing!:))

cina said...

Okey okey... I finally got my ass inside after a long day out that involved watching POTC 2... finally! (Mmmmm... Jack Sparrow!)

I'm now ready to do my duty as a JakeWatch agent and VOTE VOTE VOTE til' my fingers bleed... or whatever.

Off to vote!

cina said...

Oh and that hotel looks like the fucking Versailles!!!

The Bearded Lady said...

^^ I think it was. LOL

msdonniedarko said...

47 to 50 now! good job jake watchers! we might actully make him win!

cina said...

Hahaha! This one was friggin' hilarious!!

Jake Gyllenhaal had a few reservations about working with horses on the set of Brokeback Mountain (2005). "When I was little I fell off a horse," he recalled. "I made a pig noise. I was on the horse and I thought, for some reason, horses like it when human beings make pig noises on them. So I thought to myself, 'Well, why not try it now?' So I went [snort] and the horse bucked up and threw me off. And my foot was still in the stirrups so... it was running around and I was bobbing around and my head was almost about to hit the ground [until his father saved the day]... Since then I've always thought, 'I shouldn't make pig noises.'"

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love this man's sense of humor! :-D

The Bearded Lady said...

I guess all the Matthew McConaughey fans must be in detox?

Linna said...

Pig noises!! :) LOL!! That is so funny Cina!!

And the vote is 49% McBongo and 48% Jake now!! Way to go everyone!! Lets turn it around! :)

wtbgirl said...

Almost there ... 49% McBongo vs. 48% Jake.

Anonymous said...

tie game!!!

Anna said...

YAY! Jake 49%, Matt 48%!

(I'm thinking their site is going to crash with all the mad voting that's going on...)

Anonymous said...

Jake 50%, Matt 47%!

No kidding, they must be wondering...

and I'm thinking my arm is going to fall off with all the mad clicking that's going on... ;-)

Linna said...

Haha!! :)

Does anyone know how long the poll will go on? Cause I'm serioulsy worried my right arm will be paralysed soon...

Agnes said...

We are soooo good :)

And Cina LOL.

msdonniedarko said...

i was just wondering that! we need to keep him ahead till the poll is over, good job agents!

msdonniedarko said...

jake has better fans than matt!!!

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ Yes!! I can't believe we did it!!!

cina said...

That's the power of love ladies and gents! The power of love! :-D

phoebe said...

Excellent work, everyone! I couldn't stand the thought of McConagag winning!

jack nasty girl said...

Jake 51% Matt 46%

jla said...

Never underestimate the voting prowess of the Gyllenhaalics!! Thanks for mobilizing the troops over at IHJ Joyce! When will the entertainment media learn? Skip these futile polls and just designate Jake the Best Everything Ever... Period ...Exclamation!!

cina said...

"McConagag" - LMAO Phoebs!

msdonniedarko said...

msdonniedarko said...

msdonniedarko said...

dani said...

Right now it is 44-54 in our Jakey's favor. The people at In Touch are probably wondering what the hell happened. Like Jla said, they might as well skip these polls from now on. Great job!

cina said...

Jake 55
Matt 42

:-D

Elle said...

Who are those silly gits who voted for Lance, anyway? They're obviously lost and confused souls and need to be helped to vote in the right direction ...

More power to Jake's people!! Jake Watchers, you are extraordinary!

The Bearded Lady said...

"Who are those silly gits who voted for Lance, anyway?"

Have you counted the votes Lance cast on his own behalf?

marieke said...

Matt 39%
Jake 58%

cina said...

Oh we're so good. We're so damn good! :-D
