DONNIE DARKO BRASCO

"Hey, Big Tony, Big Tony. Don't worry about it. I got the new kid, Swedish G on the case. Yeah, I can assure you we won't be seeing our good friend Jerry Four Fingers again. Nah, we did up him real good. 'Course we used bricks. We ain't rookies, Big T, this is a high quality operation we got goin' here. Yeah, yeah, I like this Swedish G, he's a lil' wet behind the ears but he's, whadda ya say? Inconscipuous. Yeah, the Hudson, the Hudson, we're on it. Sleepin' with the fishes. Forget abart it!"

Works for me. I've had a thing for sexy assasins ever since Bourne Identity.

lilly said...

yup, works for me too!

in fact i think anything he does, even maybe a sweage worker would still work.....

:)

mrs_dalloway said...

Wonder if Poppa G knows about this.Or wait..it must be a family thing,right?However he does look sort of uncomfortable with that big bag,so I guess he's the one chosen to do the dirty job..and he hates it.(yes,I'm trying to gve him a way out for this god damn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.)

muffin said...

Arghhhhh...is there where I admit that the reason I didn't see Donnie Darko for so many years, despite only hearing how great it was, was because I confused it with Donnie Brasco?

muffin said...

Hey Brits...were you watching Mickey Blue Eyes on Film Four last night?

britpopbaby said...

I did not no but what a coincedence!!

Simon Agent 002 said...

Aug 26, Heads Up

Bubble Boy is on at 10:30am and 5:00pm eastern standard time.
On Comedy Central today.

Anna said...

@ mrs_dalloway: I think you're on to something. Pops is in fact "il capo di tutti capi", and Jake is in training to take over from him... ;D

cina said...

Okey, this agent needs some compassion right now. I was supposed to attend a friend's wedding this weekend, but instead I catch the fucking stomach flue and I'm curled up in my couch in fetal position feeling extremely sorry for myself. :-(
Believe me when I say I don't look as sassy as I do in my avator at the moment...

Assassin Jake makes me feel a little bit better though. He looks so amazingly hot in those pictures I don't know what to do with myself. "Swedish G" - LOLOL!! Brilliant Brits - as always.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Cina,
That's awful...just take it easy today forget about everything else...

gummybug said...

I'm so sorry, Cina! :-( I hope you feel better soon, drink plenty of fluids (something with electrolytes).

Britpop, I vote we make this the offcial JakeWatch perfume (unless we find out it stinks, it hasn't been released yet). Looks the part though, no?
(Not work safe, minor nudity in the ad.)

cina said...

Thanks Simon and gummy! I'll do my best to recover from this shit. I hate it. :-(

gummybug said...

*hugshugshugs* for Cina!

cina said...

Oh, and that perfume add is brilliant gummy! It has to be the official JW perfume! (unless it stinks of course, like you said)

gummybug said...

It'll be out in the UK sooner than anywhere else (*nudging britpop*). This is all the info I have on it:

---------------

Intoxicating Eau de Parfum has carefully placed Aldehydes throughout its formulation.

On top are the passionate notes of White Lotus petals and delicate nuances of white Ylang Ylang.

Deep at the heart there is pure essence of Osmanthus flower, the sensual body of Jasmin Sambac and Orris bud, with hypnotic touches of ultimate Rose Absolute and the vibrancy of Violet leaves.

At the bottom, velvety White Suede lies seductively on a warm bed of timeless Musk, Iso E super and Hot Amber oils.

phoebe said...

Oh no, cina, that's awful, missing out on the wedding and all! I'm really sorry!! And stomach flu? That shit is the WORST. Feel better soon, darling!

Oh and looking hot, hot, hot there Mr G! *sigh* Dangerously hot ;-D

The Bearded Lady said...

I think if you wear this perfume, you would need to be in a warm climate.
As you might catch a draft otherwise...

gummybug said...

I'm in Florida... but the AC is on full blast.

"Forget about it": Pronounced in my neighborhood thusly: "Fugeddaboutit."

Used frequently by my 65-year-old landlady, who's of Italian-American descent. Not used very often -- or even at all -- by my newer neighbors from Haiti, Guatemala, China, Trinidad, and rural Illinois.

nice anonymous said...

I'll bet that Jake has no clothes in that bag at all -- not even a nice suit on a hanger. Probably it's just brimming with extra pairs of sneakers.

I'm just admiring the flat, rather inward curve of that abdomen of his. My God, if more men had stomachs like that ...

cina said...

I'm just admiring the flat, rather inward curve of that abdomen of his. My God, if more men had stomachs like that ...

Oh God yes. That is something that always drives me crazy!! And especially on Jake. You have no idea how much I would like to put my hands under that shirt and feel that flat stomach... gahh! *fans herself*

And thanks Phoebe! The cold went away, but instead I catch the stomach flue. Isn't that something, huh? And I agree - that shit IS the worst!

Agnes said...

I'm so sorry Cina *hug*. Get better soon!

And Oh my that body, I say no more :p

nice anonymous said...

Poor Cina. I'll bet that if you could just rub Jake's belly, your own belly would soon feel much, much better. (Rubbing Jake's belly should confer luck upon the rubbee -- just like rubbing the Buddha's belly.)

Does anyone else find the direction of Jake's downward glance in this picture to be rather intriguing? I'm sure that he's just being careful of his footing, trying to see around that enormous garment bag (which, as I've said, is surely overladen with sneakers). But, in my imagination, he's looking down at Little Jake. Thinking, "Hell, it's sore as an American League pitcher's arm. But at least it feels like it's still attached. Man, those girls from Longuyland are really something else."

Simon Agent 002 said...

Bubble boy is on TV next to me at this moment...the vulture chasing after his bubble is precious!

Anneka needs to review this film! ...

Yes, we Italians have a gift for expressing ourselves with few words...

pgcatz said...

That's what happens when you go out with Meadow Soprano.

Dumbo said...

I second that Simon, a Bubble Boy Review would be all too PERFECT

phoebe said...

Bubble boy is on TV next to me at this moment...the vulture chasing after his bubble is precious!

Aww, man! I wanna see it!! I really have to get my act together and buy it online. No more excuses.

Simon Agent 002 said...

Phoebe it's only for maybe 30 seconds on film ...but it's funny as hell.

Picture salt flat cracked desert...
Jake in the bubble suit...and this funny looking Vulture bird with long legs (like a small turkey) waddling after him...
Then it jumps up and tries to peck at his bubble!..LMAO!

Jake is brilliant in this movie. His comic timing is perfect, and when he learns Cloe wants to marry someone else...his voice quavers...You get a lump in your throat...it's a touching, silly, crazy movie...
The whole cast is great!

And, I'm watching for the 5Th time at 5:00! LOL :)

dani said...

Simon,I'm glad you mentioned Bubble Boy is on today. I said it also several days ago, but it was at the end of a very long thread.
Anyway, I'm going to watch it right now and probably again later. Jake is really fantastic in this film. I can't believe that I had to let it grow on me. Now I love it!

Mrs. Livingston: And then Pinocchio came out of his plastic bubble and touched the filthy little whore next door and died. The End! :-)

Damn. I think I have top pop Bubble Boy into my DVD-player tonight. You made me want to watch it again Simon!

"500 dollah! 500 dollah!" LOL!

And anon 10:38 - that part is just hi-larious! :-D

cina said...

^^top pop = to pop. I blame the state I'm in today...

Anonymous said...

LOVE Bubble Boy, never fails, if I happen to be channel surfing and hit it, I must immediately stop what I am doing and watch. Can't count the number of times I've seen it on Comedy Central - really do need to buy it, too.

Must have missed the mention, but looks like the tattoo was definitely a fake...

Simon Agent 002 said...

Each time I watch it, I appreciate some new small part of it.
It's just jam packed with fun craziness...
Anneka would be hard pressed to review it in six parts.
Jake narrates the opening of the film...and at one point he's singing with an electric guitar...
I wasn't sure it was his voice singing...but as he finishes you realize it is!
He's got the deep rock star thing going on...

Anonymous said...

See how thin he's getting.Can hardly lift the body bag.Jake.Eat.
*Please*

Baldrick said...

He has lost weight.All that bloody cycling.And for what?Keep fit or movie or both.Who knows.On the upside.The tattoo is practically gone.Nobody rememebered it.I didn't see one comment about it.Hurrah.Yesterdays news.I for one am mighty glad .

cina said...

@Simon: I was so surprised when I learned that it was in fact Jake singing in that scene. His voice is SO different from when he's speaking! :-)

Anonymous said...

When I look at pics of Jakey in his white flowery swimming trunks, or his sweaty, nude torso playing baseball in those very loose, droopy green shorts, and then I look at him now, I worry. I don't want him to lose too much weight. He'll look like Christian Bale in the Machinist. Or like E.T. I'll still love him. Only it will be different.

Simon Agent 002 said...

He's looking fit.
You can see a big difference from when he showed up at the MTV awards.
Did you read the story about Matthew McConaughey? That he rubbed deep-heating arthritis gel into Jake's bike pants.
Also it sounds like Matt supplied the biking gear so it might explain the woman's biking shorts...

Monday on Oprah ...Lance's 1st wife speaks about their break up...not good news on the Lance front.

Pickle said...

Just saw the rest of the pics. Maggie & Jake are so cute. Anyone catch Letterman last night?

nice anonymous said...

I don't think Jake's got exercise bulimia or manorexia or whatever they call it ... yet. But it does look like he's training pretty hard. Maybe if he was using more than one hand to lug that garment bag full of footwear. Then I'd worry.

If Jake gets too thin, we'll have to send Dennis Quaid to talk with him.

phoebe said...

Phoebe it's only for maybe 30 seconds on film ...but it's funny as hell.

For sure, it'd be worth it just to see those 30 sec. But the reason why I so need to buy it is because I haven't seen Bubble Boy... at all (since you can't get hold of it at the video stores around here). I know. It's really bad.

Anonymous said...

He looked like a gorgeous hunk of a man at the MTV awards.He looks better when he's a bit bigger.That is just my opinion and i'm going by the recent stories from the people at Cullens and iheartjake who said he is very thin in person.This is too much weight loss in so short a time.He didn't even need to lose it.His body is gorgeous any how,but not too skinny eh Jake.Go get some cupcakes.lol.

JustJake said...

Thanks Simon,that Oprah show will be interesting.

JustJake said...

pickle,i was wondering that.I didn't see it.Did anybody watch Maggie on Letterman?

Dumbo said...

What is with the body bag anyway, and where is DaddyG when Jake needs him? I bet pops could carry that bag with ease.

justjake said...

Simon,the link to enquirer doesn't work?I'm curious as to what you are talking about.Deep heat and womens cycling shorts?lol

Anonymous said...

Yeah,what the hell is in that bag?Can't be clothes.Can it?He only seems to travel light in that respect.

Phoebe, it's loaded with 30sec moments thru out the film ...lol
Yes it's hard to find the DVD in the stores...I'm so jealous of Cina...cause the extras and commentary is almost as much fun as the film itself. (see YouTube)

I want it too!...Maybe someday Jake Watch will sell DVD's....a one stop shop for all the Gyllenhaal family talent.... oh Brit has her plate full as it is....lol

I'll try the link again(sorry)...I wish I knew how to put put a link button here...

Pickle said...

Justjake,

Yes, I saw it. Maggie was really cute, touching/rubbing her belly a few times. She spoke of Jake, only calling him 'my brother'. She said that Peter and 'her brother' were running around the city trying to find something for her to eat that wouldn't make her sick. Jake fed her a spoonful of tiramisu and that was it, problem solved.

I thought the interview was a bit too short but she looked lovely!

Simon Agent 002 said...

^^Yeah she told the story how Peter walked in to another woman's gynecological
exam by accident!...lol

Her movie clip looked good...for Sherrybaby ;)

The Bearded Lady said...

"Peter walked in to another woman's gynecological
exam by accident"


It would be awkward to ask for a autograph under such circumstances....

Pickle said...

^^^ Thanks Simon! I forgot about that!

Did you get the feeling that she was about to/willing to mention all the baby names they were considering?

No problem here. He can autograph me anywhere he wants.

cina said...

Aww I want to see that interview! I know it's gonna show up at IHJ any second. Jake fed her Tiramisu? Good move! He can feed me Tiramisu any time too. Even though I'm not pregnant. ;-)

And LOLOL at Peter walking in on another woman's gynecological exam! LMFAO!! Poor woman though...

Simon Agent 002 said...

Yeah while your in the stirups...

"Are you Peter Sarsgaard?!"

"Can I have your autograph?".....

"Doc could I borrow your pen".

Yeah, I thought she might mention names but Letterman was pushing things along and being inane....
He seems to do his show on automatic lately.

justjake said...

Aww pickle,thanks for that.Makes me all warm and glowing knowing that such thoughtful men do actualy exist.Why i can't find one.Sigh.

britpopbaby said...

Oh that just made me go all wobbly inside...

justjake said...

Simon,me again.
Tried link and this time it said page unavailable,under construction?Oh well.Thanks for trying.Maybe the server is busy at the moment?I will try it again later.Unless some gorgeoussly genorous person here has access to it and can copy and paste the article here?No pressure,but it doesn't hurt to ask.lol

www.nationalenquirer.com ...so take it for what it's worth...

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE DEPT.

Practical joker MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY targeted pal JAKE GYLLENHAAL when the two actors hooked up with Tour de France champion LANCE ARMSTRONG for a 15-mile bike ride in Southern California. Armstrong had brought the guys special riding pants, designed for better protection against uncomfortable bike seats -- but just a mile into the ride, Jake began complaining that his butt was on *fire!* Lance and Mat-thew told him to tough it out, just keep pedaling - but the burning became unbearable, so Jake pulled over and quit. The guys cracked up, and Matthew finally confessed he'd rubbed deep-heating arthritis gel -- YeeeOOW! - into the seat of Jake's bike pants. He handed his pal a real cool replacement for his Hot Pants - and after a quick change, the merry pranksters hit the road again.

justjake said...

Thanks Simon,You are an angel.x

Aww,poor Jakey.That stuff would really burn touching certain err bodyily parts.lol.Have to laugh though.

Simon Agent 002 said...

It sounds like Matthew supplied the bike pants...so it could explain the odd shorts...if you believe this story.
You'd need to look at the biking pic series and see if he has different shorts on the same day.....but I'm not that curious to look. LOL

Mr McBongos,
..I'm boycotting your films until you apologize to Jake.
Not that I ever went to them to begin with,....but are you willing to take that chance?

Bubble Boy arrived in the mail here at my house on Thursday last, my day off. Made a big bowl of pop corn, and got into this precious movie. I like Jake in all his movies because it's him but when he is sweet, funny, charming and cute he is irresistable. No one does this better. I can't help but think, "What a range." From Bubble Boy to Brokeback, to Jarhead, and all in between. At the end he is in a Tux. Awsome!!!

Cina, Stomach flu is the pits. Sorry for you. Poor baby. Feel better.

dani said...

Maggie was very sweet and quiet funny on Letterman last night. I loved the way she kept mentioning "my brother" this and that without saying his name. She seems very proud of him.

Her new film looks interesting. So, that makes three movies out for her in a very short time spand. Just like Jake last year.
Ok, Jake, lets get going!!!

phoebe said...

Last night, huh? Then I'll guess it'll air over here in about a week! *squee* Can't wait! Love Maggie.

Anonymous said...

I dont think Letterman likes Jake--dont think he's ever been on. I think Mags may have been baiting Letterman to say Jake's name.

Simon Agent 002 said...

I know Jake was on Letterman when October Sky came out....I read the transcript somewhere on the internet a month ago.
Letterman seemed ok to him in that interview.
But I didn't see that video.
I don't know what is up with Letterman? because I do like him, I don't stay up and watch his show on a regular basis...but last night, he did seem wrapped up in himself.
Like he could of done his show with his eyes closed, and he was on auto pilot.
And it didn't matter who his guest was...
That's my impression.

Dumbo said...

Is he wearing the same shorts in this photo as he was the other day when we were examining his business causal look?

bubblegirl said...

"Is he wearing the same shorts in this photo as he was the other day when we were examining his business causal look?"

Looks like it. I love that he is a normal guy even though he is a bazillionaire. I think when he goes anywhere he pack maybe 3 outfits and just switches them up. I am so bummed I missed Bubble Boy! I love that movie!

nice anonymous said...

^^^
As long as Jake doesn't persist in wearing his cargo shorts after they've gotten smelly.

Jake, if you sniff them to check them before you put them on ... then you know ... they may be a little, er, questionable.

So, my darling blue-eyed, talented boy -- once you get home, tie off that bag of laundry & drop it off at the cleaners. Really. Please. I know you probably **adore** those gray t-shirts & that particular pair of shorts. Still, a brief separation from your much-loved garments won't hurt you. They'll be all nice & clean-smelling afterward. And you know we all really, really like a nice, clean-smelling boy.
