Our dear friend and future sister-in-law Maggie graced the pages of LIFE magazine this morning, which worked out nicely since this is the first time in recent memory I've looked at the paper before I went to work. Thank you, Fate, for helping me stay ahead of the game. I also hit every green light on the way to work, allowing me to convey a sense of responsibility to my superiors when I showed up early. Hey, remember when LIFE was a respected publication and not a cheesy insert with you weekend newspaper? Sorry. Off topic.
So Maggie, six films out this year?! And your working the pregnancy factor?! Way to set the work ethic standard. Why don't you tell your brother to get his lazy ass out of France and get to work? Jake, we love you and all, but your sister's totally got you beat when it comes to upcoming projects.
P.S. Just ONE MORE REASON to be jealous of people in France...apparently they get a special edition 2-disc version of Brokeback Mountain before anyone else. They get Jake and now this?! Fate, I thought you were working with me here! This is so not fair. (Thank you, webqueen259.)
P.P.S. Speaking of projects for Jake, we're getting reports from IHJ of a possible new movie role...playing Lance Armstrong. This would actually explain quite a lot. Everything, in fact (except maybe Matthew McConnaughey, but really, there's no explaining him). It's possible we're talking about this project, in which case, has Matt Damon backed down from the lead role? Of course, any actor in his right mind would back down if the Gyllenhaal stepped up to the plate...more news as it develops... Also, we have the unnerving suggestion that Lance and Jake were, ah, "accompanied" by two lady friends after their night of raucous good fun. I think our Jake is going to have a little explaining to do when he gets home.
P.P.P.S. REALLY want to give yourself a treat? Watch the very end of this interview. (I would suggest fast-forwarding for those of you who are overdosing on Lance.) Tell me THAT doesn't do your soul a little good. :)
