THE THREE AMIGOS RISE AGAIN!

Texas Agents, suit up. Time to show us what you're worth, recruits! Jack Fuckin' Twist is back on the rodeo circuit!

And by that, I mean Jake is in Texas. Austin, to be specific. You heard it here first, except you really didn't because the information came from this most interesting and enlightening interview. Jake gets asked about The Lance Movie. And the ESPY's. And why he hangs out with people so much less attractive than he is (joking on that last one...although it's a valid question). I'm going to make you read it for yourself though. Really, it's some good shit.

So, yup. Texas it is. No news yet on if he'll be riding the bulls this time. He got busted up before. The Army didn't even want 'im. It's not like back in his daddy's day.

Sorry. Jake in Texas makes me go all Jack Nasty. Yeee-haw!

Does he even have a home? If so when is the last time he was in it? Such a restless man. Does anyone know the last time he was home?

pickle said...

Well he was at home with me last night.

Sorry, not funny, I know.

pickle said...

Jake is funny. Love the part about Lance in spandex behind dudes all day.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

dani said...

Well, that boy sure gets around. It seems like a minute ago I was glad he was back in LA. Now he's gone again. That's ok. Jack Nasty in Texas brings nothing but good thoughts. Good interview btw.

Kendra said...

Texas always brings me to mind warms vibes and film "Giant" starring James Dean. I've compared Jake a bit with James Dean in my blog!

If Jake does the Lance Movie, I'm going to have to find someone else to adore.

But at least he's rooting for OSU instead of Texas.

Matthew is the world's sexiest guy. A magazine said so, so I've got to believe it. I keep telling myself that, but my eyes & my gut feelings utterly reject it. His PR people must have been working overtime to get him that magazine accolade. Just look at this picture of him with a beard. He looks like some wild-eyed extremist who's holed up alone in the wilds of Montana, ranting about conspiracy theories & building home-made explosive devices. I am sorry. Just ... no, no, no.

Every time I keep hoping that Jake is done with these guys, they're off hanging out together again. They must bring him joy in some way, so I am trying to like them.

Trying ... trying ... Still trying.

well y'know nice anon.. not to say looks aren't important but maybe he's got personality. At least that's what people tell me on the one day a year I go out looking less than gorgeous. Then again I am drunk ..

Anonymous said...

I feel bad for his dogs.

@ drunk anonymous
Sorry, I've been spoiled by Jake, because he's gorgeous and also appears to have a great personality. So now when I've simply gotta spend time with a celebrity -- such as when I'm planning to go the movies or watch a DVD, or buy a magazine & stare at the pictures in it -- then I want nothing less than the total package. I want Jake Gyllenhaal, damn it. And I resent being told by some magazine that he's, like, No. 5 in the sexiest man countdown, or whatever, when Matthew is named No. 1. The world seems like an unjust place to me then. Look at Jake's beard, then look at Matt's.

I'm really trying to see some redeeming quality in Matthew, because Jake seems to like him.

Maybe Matt gets drunk & gets on the Internet & shows Jake all the squeeing things said about him on blogs & stuff, and reads all the compliments to Jake in a mocking, high-pitched voice. Yeah. That seems like something guys would do to each other.

amerita said...

I don't know what to say about McBongo personally, but in truth I don't mind Jake spending some time with those two guys. I think I can trust Jake that he would not hang out with them if they had no quality at all. But Matt's beard is absolutely HORRIBLE. Even Heath's beard (the one he was sporting until few days back) looked better ... and that was real ugly too! Sexiest man alive? NO WAY! Even Lance looks better these days.

Anonymous said...

Yay! I love dumping on McBongo! (The dude does seem like he's fun though). But c'mon! Sexiest Man Alive!?!?! He barely showers! Plus have you SEEN those short stubby arms!?!?!

Anyway, maybe Jake is getting in some quality time with his McBuddy. Apparently Mattie is soon to jet off to Australia to start filming something called 'Fools Gold' with Kate Hudson.

amerita said...

^^ Glad someone else noticed the short stubby harms! I thought I was not seing right ... Jake's body is so well proportioned ... but I think Matt's not.

amerita said...

Sorry to keep posting but it just occurred to me who Matt loks like in the pic... Giuseppe Verdi, as he appeared on the Italian 1000 Lira bill circa 1980 :

http://www.banconotemondiali.it/personaggi/italia/verdi.html

Though the movie with Hudson does not sound like a Verdi biopic does it? :-)

bubblegirl said...

I uses to think Matt was really sexy. I love the way he talks. But that beard had got to go!!!! I didn't like Jake's either but at least he kept it nice. Heath's looks like crap too. Is crappy looking beards in style or something?

jla said...

I love how Jake called Lance out about that Espy's shit!!

But on a more unintelligible note...WTF was Matt talking about with the song? To quote Matthew;

"It's cool, man. It was just a little ditty that I woke up in the middle of the night about a year ago, and I was in Spain. I was like, 'You know what, man? They don't think so, they know it -- Somebody don't think so, somebody knows so.' I feel good man, it's fun."

I may have this all outta context and his quote may be in reference to the lyrics of this aforementioned song/battle cry but seriously WTF is he smoking because I might need a little of that!!

veeveevee said...

Even though Lance is my brother's hero, I'm still not quite sure about the movie thing...not that I won't see it, though!!! Working my way through The Jake Library of Film - just bought The Good Girl (I know, I'm remiss...what a terrible fan!) and I'm watching it tonight.

P.S. Thanks, Kendra, for your comparisons on your blog - loved the James Dean one and the Jake Olympique - gotta love The Sex when he's out being active (and even when he's not, of course!) ;-)

Love, love, love that boy/man of my dreams!

cina said...

So, yup. Texas it is. No news yet on if he'll be riding the bulls this time. He got busted up before. The Army didn't even want 'im. It's not like back in his daddy's day.

LOL!! Damn right.

It's good to see him out and about again, I've really missed getting reports on him on almost daily bases. We've been spoiled rotten really.
But Jake, even though it's nice and all to see you travelling around the country and hanging out with your new BFF Lance and Matt, I think it's time you went back to LA and started promoting Zodiac. WE'RE DYING HERE YOU KNOW!!

Anonymous said...

I think Matty is a free spirit type guy. Really wild and unintentionally funny. Pictures on gossip blogs of him doing yoga on the beach and those contortions in the swimming pool in Miami. I bet there are a lot of scrawls on the walls in Florida restrooms:" Call Matt for a good time." I used to not like him, but lately he's growing on me bcz he seems nuts. Lance is the one I just cannot get into. Yes he's doing good work with his foundation. Yes he's got a record of stellar athletic achievment, but he seems like an ass.I think Jake looks up to and admires people and might not appreciate the fact that sometimes they find it useful to be in HIS company. And I wonder how Lance really feels when an actor decides to master the very sport he excelled in? Not saying Jake will win the TDF seven times, but he seems very focussed on developing his stamina as a cyclist. And Matthew looks at this totally gorgeous guy who's not even 26 and has been nominated for an Oscar, done award-winning stage work and received a BAFTA. Matt's done some good movies, and he's rich, but 50 years from now, how many of Matt's films will be considered classics and how many of Jake's? Bcz each in their own way, Donnie Darko, Jarhead and Brokeback Mountain are considered classics. Jakey needs to sit down with his agent and line up some film work. PLZ!!!! I'm sure he's probably doing that, but I wish he'd announce some film projects soon!!

Anonymous said...

Matt is coming to Australia? Will he be working his way down to Tasmania? HAHAHA

amerita said...

As much as I am looking forward to seeing Jake perform on the big screne, I don't think he is in a rush to take up a new role and I don't see why he should. Because he needs to take advantage of his current popularity and do as much work as possible as long as the interest does not shift to the next new guy? I don't think this is the kind of work he is interested in. Also, while I understand Lance is not popular with many people and Mr ex-sexiest man alive might not be the most 'intellectual' actor in HW, truth is we really really don't know those 2 guys...
BTW, I am curious if there is any specific reason why some of you think Lance is an ass?

cina said...

^^ You know, I've been wondering that too. What's so bad about Lance??

kokodee said...

I'm not sure why, but from whta I hear he's a bit of a publicity/celebrity whore.
The part in the interview where Jake says he got a call out of the blue...Hmm..

muffin said...

I think that LA has plenty of fame in his own right. He isn't famous for being famous like people like Paris Hilton. I know plenty of people who know who Lance is but have no clue who Jake is.

veeveevee said...

okay, I know...off topic...but I just finished watching The Good Girl for the first time, and I am so peeved at Justine - what a #*$@*#! She didn't need to tell on Holden and cause him to commit suicide. Grrr, I'm irritated. Nonetheless, I enjoyed watching Jacke while he was on screen. Kind of like the fact that I can see certain nuances of Jake/Jack/the tongue tick, etc. in this role, too. Love him always (as always!)

penny lane said...

Thanks for the interview BPB - it's an interesting read and answers at least some of the questions that have been occupying some people!
(Someone said she would have to find someone else to adore if he decides to make that Lance Armstrong movie. I'm sorry, but I think that is silly. How can you be so opposed to something that hasn't even been made yet and you haven't had the chance to see?!).

Anonymous said...

It's probably just me, but whenever I see these three together I always get the impression the other two are just stringing him along, almost tolerating some kid they have to put up with cos he's of use to them.
They both just seem - and are! - so much older than him they seem so odd with him, he seems to out of place, like he's hanging around a hero whose just putting up with him cos he likes the adoration.

And why would Armstrong suddenly phone Jake up to get to know him? Did he do that before he was the big star BBM has made him? No. But I'm SURE that's just a coincidence!

bubblegirl said...

I thought they started hanging out because Jake was interested in playing LA in the movie. Jake made that known so LA wanted to get to know him to see that he was right. That's not so bad is it? I don't think Matthew needs extra publicity he is a pretty big star. But you never know Jake is pretty popular right now.

pgcatz said...

Thank You BPB I looked for that arcticle to read and I couldn't locate that. I live in Arkansas I neighbor state of Texas. They will take good care of Jake in Texas and if we watch the game we might see him. I love that all this reminds us of Jack Twist. That was my most favorite Jake role.

Anonymous said...

anon 1:42, I'm uneasy too. These two guys don't seem at all like Peter Saarsgard or Heath Ledger.Or Adam Levine.(Well, Adam seems discreet, anyway.) All those Florida pics re-enforce my impression of them. As for LA not needing publicity and being more well known than Jakey, I think that's absolutely true....Except, LA might not feel that way.It's a funny thing. I've seen the phenom up close and personal. Lance's "glory days" of 7 times TDF winner are behind him. He really enjoys celebrity,enjoys center stage. He's on the verge of famous for being famous. I think he called Jake before BBM. I think he'd been noodling around the idea for a movie for a very long time.And quite possibly wanted Matt, who shrewdly postponed the idea. (Matt also has the $$ to at least co-produce.) I think Jake needs to work. I don't think this "break" is as voluntary as it started out to be. Yeah, he's picky, but I think ultimately, Like Clooney, he'll make movies so HE can make movies.

Marie said...

But Britpop, does Jake really have a choice about hanging out with people less attractive than he is? I mean, there is no one else as attractive as him. Jake's always going to be the best looking guy in the room. ;-)

SquallCloud said...

How did you meet Lance? One day, I got a phone call from Mr. Armstrong and he said, 'How are you doing, Jake? This is Lance Armstrong. Do you want to go for a (bike) ride?' And we went for a ride, and that was basically it.

*snerk*

This makes Lance sound like a child molestor for some reason. "Wanna go bikeriding little boy?"

SquallCloud said...

I've been to Austin,

*double snerk*

Anonymous said...

It's just a weird thing to me. Jake has loads of friends, of course, and has been seen with some of them, and I never get any kind of thoughts about that at all, but it's just these two, there's something about them and I can't even think what it is!

I thought Jake said a few months ago that LA phoned him a few months before that. He did BBM two years ago, so he can't have phoned him first before BBM!

kokodee said...

Squall dear was all that smirking you're doing in the background?
Lmao!

SquallCloud said...

I'm happy that jla is back. That's not the topic at hand but it just seems like you were gone for a bit babe.

Also, I skipped the LAnce and Mat McC parts but I really love the fact that McBongo is horny little stoner. He's ultra easy to slash.

The interview was nice because I like whenever Jake deins to let us know what's on his mind but sports makes me fall asleep and drool on my keyboard.

SquallCloud said...

One more thing then I'll shut the hell up. In the quote I posted, the author inserted the word bike so in actuality, Lance asked Jake if he'd like to go for a ride.

Stopping now.

Anyway, I lurve his clean shaven beautiful face.

amerita said...

veeveevee, exactly my rhoughts when I saw the Good Girl. Ubsolutely did not find any simpathy for that Justine. That movie does not rank high on my list of favorite JG movies. I am watching Bubble Boy today, have a feeling I'll like it...

Parothed67 said...

I live in Texas, about 4 hours away from Austin. If I thought I had the remotest chance of spotting him in Austin you can bet that's where I would be this weekend. And I've never thought of myself as the stalker type..

britpopbaby said...

But Britpop, does Jake really have a choice about hanging out with people less attractive than he is?

Hell no! He really does make everyone else look fug - apart from Maggie and Sarsy. They seem to be able to hold their own.

And PG wrote this post not me! She is doing the 'graveyard' shift.

Anonymous said...

It baffles me why anyone within a six hour limit would even question the advisability of going to Austin. I live 12 hours away and I've been fantasizing about hopping in my car and going to Austin!!!LOL!!!! But alas...RL intervened! As for worrying about Jake???He's gonna be 26 in a minute and he's a big boy. He'll be fine.

dani said...

At first I got a little excited about the "Jack Nasty" in Texas thing and thought it was ok for Jake to be there - for a day or two. Not a week or two!

I am also one of the people who has a weird feeling about him hanging out with these guys. He does seem out of place for one. It also seems like they want to be with him for alterior motives. IMO I think Jake just wants to be with Lance because of the admiration he has for him. And unfortunately McC is part of a package deal.

I just don't want Jake being subjected to any smarmy influences from these two. I don't feel any of his other friends are like this. I'll just have to believe Jake's good character will stay strong but I'm still uneasy.

Prophecy Girl said...

I have no idea how long it would take me to get to Austin (a LONG time, I'm sure), but I would so do it if I had someone to go with. I'm supposed to hang out at the river today and I can't even seem to get that rolling. I need more spontaneous friends. :(

britpopbaby said...

Hang out at the river? What is this, Huckleberry Finn?

Personally, I'd like to see Jake hanging out with some respectable folks like Kid Rock ;)

nice anonymous said...

I'll just wait for Jake to come back to New York. And when he's there, I won't go looking for him. I'm not the type to do that. I'll just be happy to entertain the idea that he's walking around in the same city, doing whatever he likes to do. I'll let my imagination do all the work. Then the reality won't let me down.

Is Maggie going to give birth in New York or in L.A., I wonder? I want to see "Sherrybaby" this weekend.

Tom Sawyer and Becky have been one of the hottest couple in literatute history, I love that kiss scene in the book, a bit in a Donnie Darko style of developing (in the way the girl resists despite of desperately wanting to be kissed)

Lance Pants

Since back in the 1990s before he was really, really famous with his ball cancer, I was under the impression he was an Australian (either I heard the sports news wrong at the time, or it was reported ambiguously) until I started to read about him via Jake, and was pleasantly surprised to know that he is not. I guess that is what Kokodee means when she says he is a bit of a celebrity/publicity whore; that he allows the truth to be bent to rally support among the public et als. Drug denials, ego problems: there is no doubt he is controversial.

Which begs the question, are all Lance supporters wankers? I found this posted,

"lance armstrong's genes hold the secret to curing cancer. He can sweat out cancer and crap out tumors. Every exwife of Lance Armstrong has cancer because he can actually will it into people's system... Lance Armstrong ejected cancer from his body so forcibly that a testicle shot off."

from http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Lance+Armstrong
also see http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=livestrong

All I can recommend is:

http://www.dontdatehimgirl.com/

I too have felt that 'LA' is a little on the nose, but this proposed film is a great role for Jake exactly because of this controversy.

Anonymous said...

At this point I'd welcome Jake in a sequel to The House of Wax!!! I am that desperate for him to get going on a new project. BTW: Does anyone know how well Jarhead has done since its release; foreign, domestic and DVD? I wonder what Jakey's Q score is?

Prophecy Girl said...

You don't have no Tom Sawyer PG?

Alas, no! Apparently he's in Austin, or something? ;) I wanted to go cave exploring but he ditched me for college football. Men!

britpopbaby said...

Does anyone know how well Jarhead has done since its release; foreign, domestic and DVD?

It's still in the Top Ten chart at my local video store if that's any help :)

On another note, I seriously can't see why people don't like Lance Armstrong. If he called up Jake to do a bit of biking and help promote his charity, so what? That's how the business works and Jake was obviously happy to help. At the end of the day, Lance Armstrong has achieved way more than my sorry ass ever has and probably ever will so I respect him.

Here! Here! Brit. So what if Lance is a prick, maybe Jakey's sweet mama's boy image will warm Lance's whorey old heart and show him the meaning of Christmas.

How can anyone hate McBongo? He's a spacey little party animal. He's adorable and roguish. He kinda looks like crap with that Big Labowski beard but whatevs.

britpopbaby said...

I want Jake to do something naughty. Not like getting caught at Busty Betty's with his hands in a stripper's thong but y'know, something a lil' wild.

Anonymous said...

Hmm... something wild for Jake but not too wild... that would be fun...seems he never gets caught with his pants down a la McBongo does he?(remember the druken pics this summer of McMatthew in Costa Rica? LOL!)

But something a l'il wild for our Jakey? Based on his good boy rep....if he tried it on with Busty Betty...she'd just end up taking him home and baking him a pie. She'd be wearing her thong and cowboy hat....but still...

Den Of Thieves said...

"maybe Jakey's sweet mama's boy image will warm Lance's whorey old heart and show him the meaning of Christmas."
BWAH!!
I don't really have an opinion on Lance, as I don't know him but I do have respect for his accomplishments. But I love McBongo. Everytime he opens his mouth I crack up. He always looks, acts, and sounds stoned. I have a theory that he doesn't even know he's an actor, he just keeps getting hired to play the same character in various movies and he goes along with it.

Anonymous said...

I want to see Jake be naughty, too. I'm writing the screenplay as we speak!!!! Well, Texas lost the game. I wonder how that will affect the party scene? Will there be lots of ladies to console or wil Matt and Lance be so downcast they just opt to get blind drunk and puke til they pass out?Will Jakey head for the airport or stay for the wake?
