QUOTE OF THE WEEK!

Sweet! It's been a while, I know. Our words to chew on for this week:

"I love waking up at 4:30 in the morning and going to the set. I like staying in a hotel when I'm making a movie. I love being on set. I'm not the type of actor who leaves as soon as work's over. I stay in my trailer as long as I can. I love making movies."

- Jake "I keep the hours of a dairy farmer" Gyllenhaal

Whoa, whoa, whoa. "I love waking up at 4:30 in the morning?!" No, I'm sorry, Jake, but we can no longer be friends.

Also, your random trivia tidbit for the week...did you know that Jarhead has "the 6th highest recorded number of F words for a single film?" Well, at least it does according to THIS SITE. Thanks to the anon who posted the link. The video is entertaining but, er, turn the sound down. It's not "work safe," if you catch my drift.

This week's quote comes from THIS rehashed article courtesy of OK! Magazine (I think you'll find it reads a little familiar). Scan from IHJ.

The word "fuck" is spoken 278 times in Jarhead.
I googled that, figured I'd lose count watching the movie and also be too distracted watching the flick.
I think the R rating is appropriate for Jarhead. Still it's one of my Favourites and the reason I got hooked on Jake in the first place.

i need jarhead on dvd! it's an amazing film and i totally believe the f-word (and furthermore the frequency it's used) makes it even more authentic.

i mean, i have no doubt that men in military speak like that. they definitely do not care about their words as much as philologists. that should be fair to say. lol.

Well, we knew that he's a morning person, and I'm totally fine with that, no problem for me. But 4:30? That's stretching it a bit isn't it, Gyllenhaal??

veeveevee said...

Wow those Marines have dirty mouths, don't they? ;-) I love Jarhead.

Oh, and the 4:30am thing? Go watch that Jarhead clip again to know how I feel about that! :-) Jake, 4:30am is meant for cuddling!

smurfette said...

i knew it was a high number, but wow, 278 times, really? so which movies are 1-5 on the list of most f-bombs used?

in honor of this post, some of my favorite uses of the f-word in movie quotes:

- STFU, STFU! (a classic, jake in jarhead)
- maybe. maybe not. maybe fuck yourself (mark wahlberg in the departed)
- yippee kay yay, motherfucker (die hard movies)
and of course:
-oh, please, tell me elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a fuck? (donnie darko)

i can totally see where jake is coming from when he says how he loves all about set life.it shows how devoted he is to his craft and i love that. i hope he'll believe in these work ethics and practise them in all his career years to come. also as the next big a-lister of the 2010's (and beyond).

i hate big-headed people, you know?

I think this quote reflects how much Jake really loves what he does. He just gets so excited when a movie is getting ready to start shooting he just wants to BE THERE, BE PRESENT, for every single delicious minute. I bet when he's on location in his trailer, they don't even have to hire security night watchmen because Jake is THERE. I've even seen pictures of him with the caterers!!! That's Total Immersion.
Jake takes dedication to a whole new level! But I think during those periods when he's not shooting a film, he is a much more reasonable person. I'd bet he never gets up before 7AM LOLOL!!!

Anonymous said...

^^^^ exactly, wonderful thought - when do you reckon he gets up when he's not shooting a movie?

between 7 and 8 a.m.? before 9 a.m.?

i can't make up my mind when i see a filming-free jake get up.

Anonymous said...

I love Jarhead!!! For so many reasons, and that dialogue was brilliant!! Of course, Jake took a shower, Jake was shirtless a lot of the time, Jake danced. (ahem!) Jake had sex. Jake walked around in his boxers.
Jake was covered in oil. Jake showed an apparent interest in watching people have sex on TV. Jake walked around under a blazing night sky in nothing but a G-string, a Santa Claus hat and he was carrying a BIG GUN. THere are so many reasons to love Jarhead, I lose count of them all. But the dialogue certainly resonated with truthfulness for me! (LOL!)

cina said...

-oh, please, tell me elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a fuck? (donnie darko)

LMAO Smurfette! That one is a classic!! :D

smurfette said...

^ thanks, it's a definite classic. i actualy left out maggie's line prior to that quote, which is also great: "did you just call me a fuckass? why don't u go suck a fuck?"

haha, tonight, i need to go rewatch DD, jarhead... =)

Anonymous said...

Anon 2:47 here. I think I said, "fuck" at least 100 times when I SAW Jarhead.

Dumbo said...

Although he may be an early person we all know he isn't awake at that time from his 5am toad kicking habit.

KayDee said...

I love waking up at 4:30 in the morning and going to the set.

I just KNEW he wasn't human

hugsuzie said...

If I had to get up at 4.30 in the morning I'd say "fuck" about 278 times. ;)

Anonymous said...

I think Jarhead should be moved to the top of the list for a special JW movie review. I really do.

Anonymous said...

Hey this might be of interest to anyone who wants know what the top flicks are for using the f-word.

Sorry, I don't know how to make links work. :(

Katie said...

But I thought that the wee hours of the morning were the most vulnerable and dangerous times for toad-kicking? I don't think Jake enjoyed that very much.

"Bring me hot water!!"

OT: Columbia has acquired the right to develop a movie based on superhero character The Green Hornet.

"The story centered on the adventures of playboy Britt Reid, who inherits his father's crusading newspaper, the Daily Sentinel, which he uses to expose organized crime in the city."

"Adopting the secret guise of the Green Hornet, Reid takes to the streets to personally battle criminals by night in his supercharged car, the Black Beauty, driven by his faithful companion, Kato, a master of martial-arts."

No casting decision has been made, but between the Captain Marvel story, thankfully put to rest, and succeding Tobey as Spiderman, I'd rather see Jake as Green Hornet, assuming he ABSOLUTELY MUST be a superhero.

heddaparsons said...

I agree with 9:02PM: Move Jarhead up for the next review, PLEASE!!!

10:27PM: Jake's name was mentioned to play the Green Hornet when Clooney lost interest. Now I can see Jake playing that Comic book hero!

welliwont said...

OMG Agent heddaparsons and Anon 9:02, are we going to have to duke it out??? Bump Jarhead to the top of the list, ahead of BBM????? NO no no NO a thousand times noooooooo!! (please Anneka?)

We are at odds over two issues Agent HP, the second one: I was thinking it, someone else said it here at JW, and now I will echo them, all the good superheroes have already been played, and I don't want my, ehm, I mean our boy to play some second-string superhero, or play second fiddle to anyone (Toby McG).

Sooooo, where shall we meet Agent HP sauce?? :-p

theshowerlady said...

I am SOOOO not into superheros. I agree that all the really good ones have been taken. But then I think about it. In his heart of hearts, Jake still has some unresolved adolescent issues to work out that can best be done by him being a superhero and becoming immortal on celluloid...or whatever they use nowadays...digits, pixels...anyway, I think if he must consider doing a superhero, there's only one worth considering and it's Green Hornet. But again, and I hate to repeat myself. We need to get that damned shower clause inserted deep into that contract, and shirtlessness and some explicit love scenes. It obviously will appeal to the same demographic as 300 has...so it can risk an "R" rating. I mean, if 300 demonstrated nothing else, it showed that an "R" rating won't affect box office! Thus another myth explodes. And secretly, I think Jake has been sending a message with the damned bike helmet...he WANTS to be Green Hornet.

welliwont said...

my dear showerlady, I think it goes without saying that all the JW Agents support these suggestions (about the clauses I mean).

I know you have said it three times already, and I have nodded my head every time I have read your suggestions. Has Agent Davenport been in touch with you yet?

Shower clause, shirtlessness, explicit love scenes, what else?

Now, do we want him to do the love scenes in character, or???

Anonymous said...

Would like to interrupt this thread for totally OT, butnot, breaking news bulletin: Some stupid paparazzi was crossin' the street when Keanu Reeves was in his car...actually the whole thing sounds VERY suspect. Keanu was driving forward, a pap tried to step in front of his car to stop it...kinda like Superman.... The pap was "grazed" a bit. He fell, or threw himself to the ground. He went to the hospital (Lawyers will always tell you, you need to go to the hospital) and was released. I smell a lawsuit or a cahs settlement. What a bunch of scam artists. I would SO totally hate being a celebrity! They have to be on total alert every time they walk out the door. Think about it.

theshowerlady said...

I'm sorry! I don't mean to be tedious. Truly! I will make a very serious effort to be less repetitious about the clauses. But,each time I post, when you see my name, you will remember...the unfinished work we have before us....

Anonymous said...

ROTFLMAO!!!! Is there some special award we can give to Keanu Reeve??? I know this is JW, but as a gesture of collegiality??? I'd just like to give him a big wet kiss!!!!!

2.72 Fucks per minute. There are some swear words that i just can stand, but to be honest i say that word a bit.. I just LOVE the way Jake says Fuck, it just seems beautiful the way he says it, so much expression.. and i just LOVE Jarhead so i just love the fact its number 5! haha

im still not sure about the super hero thing.. When i see him in full body lycra i might think differently!

KayDee said...

Whispering "Easy easy" at least once in every film?

cina said...

Try this one... and I'll say it just once: ;)

I do NOT want Jake to play some ridiculous super hero. None what so ever. Thank you. Perhaps that's just me getting old or something, but I really can't see that playing a super hero in some lame outfit is something to strive for careerwise. :/ Movies like Rendition, Zodiac, Jarhead, BBM - yes thank you. Quality, baby. Quality.

Aw, dagnabit. So I guess you're not for Underdog either, Agent Cina? That's the only one I liked since all the good ones have been done already, :-(

cina said...

Well, let's just say that the super hero genre isn't my cup of tea... :/

S4M985 said...

yeh, even with the lycra, i agree with Cina

Jake is better than any superhero, it just wouldnt do him justice

Nothing Really Matters said...

Jake that is so early! I would so have to get up an hour before you just to go to hair and make up!

KayDee said...

JAKE, LET ME GET IT STRAIGHT: IF YOU ACCEPT A ROLE OF SOME SUPERHERO, I'M GOING TO DITCH YOU FOR HEATH LEDGER.

Agent Krycek said...

Hmmmm 4.30am - well, I supposed if he occupied himself until I woke up with making me breakfast I could live with it.

Not keen on the Super hero thing at all, can't think of a Super hero film I'd go out of my way to watch, I mean I would for Jake, but I wouldn't be keen.

heddaparsons said...

Hey Welliwont!: I can wait for the Jarhead review, I just was curious to see how Anneka would review it with all those F-Bombs! BBM, Jarhead and by all means Donnie Darko! And regarding Jake doing comic book movie: It seems to me that he wants to do some type of super ero type movie/franchise or else his name wouldn't keep popping up: Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Captain Marvel and he was mentioned for Green Hornet back in '04! So if he has to do one, then Green Hornet would be the one IMO and no Hornet does not wear Lycra!

Agent Davenport is in kind of semi retirement as she wasn't getting any actual work done due to her obbsession with Jake/ Jakewatch/ fan fic/ Lashers/ IHJ etc etc .
However if she had the power to insert these clauses in Jake's contracts she surely would. Unfortunately my online powers and clientelle are far more glamourous than those of RL.
*sigh*

ROFLMAO!!!!! I don't think it would take much arm-twisting for you to do that, do you, KayDee?? ;)

Actually, my fondest wish is to next see Jake in a romantic comedy/drama. An R-rated romantic comedy/drama with explicit shower love scenes.

Variety.com said...

Why the hell is Shazam! listed as "rumored" on Jake's IMDB page??/

theshowerlady said...

Hi, Agent Davenport!!! You've been my idol for years. Total role model.I'm only 4' tall, with hair slightly longer than Natalie Portman in Vendetta, my inner person was always tall, thin and wore her hair either long and flowing, or pulled up. I even walked tall. I miss you and "Pizza Man!" OK. Sorry to know you're in semi retirement. RL can really mess things up! Maybe we need a committee to draft the clauses and send them to Jake's people. What do they mean that Green Hornet doesn't wear lycra???? I mean...what's the point of playing a superhero if you can't wear lycra?

cina said...

Because they don't know sh*t. You simply cannot trust IMDb.

Anonymous said...

the Shazam thing has been officially put to rest, no worry.

As for the Green Hornet, I don't think he goes around in lycra, from what I read.

Kaydee, so you'll ditch the superhero for the villain joker?

And I'd say to the Gyllenhaal, seriously, stay away from those lame romantic comedies! Sorry gals, I had to say it.

ncwoman said...

"And I'd say to the Gyllenhaal, seriously, stay away from those lame romantic comedies! Sorry gals, I had to say it."

Hey, it's cool, Anon 4:37...everyone's entitled to their opinion.

For my part (and Cina's too, I think!)....I'd love to see him in a GOOD romantic comedy. And can you imagine him doing a hot love scene in the shower? A wet Jake, kissing, caressing, licking....

Holy crap, I need to stop this!

KayDee said...

I don't think it would take much arm-twisting for you to do that, do you, KayDee?? ;)

LOL. Nope

Kaydee, so you'll ditch the superhero for the villain joker?

Yep :D

KayDee said...

Couldn't he do all that in a not romantic comedy film?

I imagine something like The Ultimate Shower Scene Film. Couldn't we here at JakeWatch write the scenario? It would be simple - basically: Jake takes a shower. Then he goes to the gym to get sweaty. Then he takes a shower. Then he has sex. Then he takes a shower and makes love to his partner in there....

You get the picture.

Oh, and PG is very brilliant - she could put some dialogue somewhere in there... :P

ncwoman said...

KayDee wrote: "Couldn't he do all that in a not romantic comedy film?"

WELL. What you guys got against romantic comedies, hmmmmmmmm??

Bottom line, I would like to see Jake flex his comedic muscles, as we glimpsed when he hosted SNL. AND I would like to see hot, wet, steamy shower love scenes. If that combo means a romantic comedy, fine, bring it ON!! Makes no never-mind to me!

Anonymous said...

Hey maybe JG should star in a porn movie. Because that list of clauses you think should be included in his next movie contract sure seem to lead in that direction. Forget about the romance!

theshowerlady said...

I am thinking art not porn! As in, Jake is a work of art. Jarhead was hardly porn, and has been mentioned here, Jake had sex, Jake took a shower, Jake walked around shirtless, Jake danced. Jake wore a g-string and his body was totally on display to be admired. And he acted really well, too. In fact,he should have gotten an Oscar nomination for his Swofford role and probably would have if not for BBM. I just think that if he's got it, he should celebrate it not hide it. So sue me! some of my favorite scenes are Jake taking a shower.

Anonymous said...

And he acted really well, too
Oh, thanks god you actually noticed that;-)

Seriously, I do agree Jake should have gotten a nomination for his role in Jarhead. Jack Twist is a character that sticks in your mind, but Jake's best performance was as repeat-after-me-Swoff, in my opinion.

edith said...

I hated Jarhead, i didn't saw no point in there

KayDee said...

oh, c'mon, no point in jarhead - the film about the war in iraq and what it does to ppl??? and the reasons & chances in the war?

in fact, i don't remember the quote exactly but it was very powerful, about saddam hussein and the history that will repeat itself. i think it showed very well that politicians NEVER learn.

ok, i'll stop before our leaders tell me to go to the forum with that kind of discussion... OOOPs!
