YOU'RE ALL INVITED!

Just a quick reminder for anyone who lives in the LA vincity and isn't busy with botox or stomach resculpting in the upcoming weeks, go and see Jake in this play (kinda)! If you do plan to go please wear the 'I'm Stalking Jake' or 'Team Gyllenhaal' buttons and review the play for us because we're arty and worldly like that.


HIT COMEDY "THREE COMPAÑEROS" RETURNS TO UPRIGHT CITIZENS BRIGADE THEATRE IN HOLLYWOOD
PRIME TIME PERFORMANCE DATES ADDED BY POPULAR DEMAND


After a sold-out engagment earlier this year, THREE COMPAÑEROS moves to Prime Time and returns to The Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre.

THREE COMPAÑEROS is a parody of "Three's Company" which replaces roommates Jack, Janet and Chrissy with Lance Armstrong, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey. As the three roommates spend the summer trying to woo their wacky landlord's beautiful female visitor double entendres and a series of misunderstandings threaten to turn them against one another. Will they let a femme fatale and fame trump friendship? Or will these three companeros kiss and make up?

The real Armstrong, obviously a good sport, has called the play's premise "hilarious."

Writer/director Amy Rhodes recently created and developed the sitcom pilot for Oxygen Network. She has written and performed two solo shows, both Time Out New York Critics' Picks for Comedy.

Taran Killam ("MAD TV," "Nobody's Watching," "Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz") plays McConaughey, Robert Lambert ("The David Cross Show," "C.A.R.E.") plays Armstrong and Bryan Safi (the long-running hit "Inside Private Lives," "Crystal and Pushups" at UCB in L.A.) portrays Gyllenhaal. Drew Droege (Groundlings, "Reno 911") is the fellas' landlord and The Beautiful Blonde is portrayed by Cassie Pappas, who replaced Kelly Ripa on Live With Regis and Kelly while Ripa was on maternity leave.

Okay, when we first heard about this, I thought it would vanish into oblivion. Now she's telling us that its first run was sold out? Are there really that many of us in L.A.?

Anyway, good for Ms. Amy Rhodes. Shoot, if I were there, I'd drop 5 bucks to check it out.

Man, I wanted to see this back when it was lame! And now it's cool. Dammit. It's so not fair that all the good stuff happens in LA. :(

TMZ is reporting another J&A sighting here

Stephanie said...

Lol it sounds so lame that it'd be awesome. Too bad I live in Arizona, so close, yet so far...

cina said...

Oh well.... since there is no way I can see it myself, I'll be looking forward to reading REVIEWS... *hint hint*

LA AGENTS...?

Nothing Really Matters said...

Thanks anony! I love Jaustin! Wish I was in L.A. to see this play. I've got my I Stalk Jake button & coffee mug on my desk! Waiting on the bumper sticker!

ncwoman said...

Damn, wish I didn't live on the opposite coast! I would so love to see that!

Do they have photos of the leads playing these famous people?

I think the landlord is the plum role.

(Vx3 here)

Yeah, let's have some reviews! And can any clever agent come up with a picture of the guy who is playing Jake - talk about big shoes to fill!!! There is no way he could even compare!

If this sighting is to be believed, Jake is in NY or was on 4/9, Monday:

Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if he were there. So cool if he's able to be under the radar for a few days!!! The actual convo in the Starbucks encounter sounds pretty realistic, but it also sounds TGTBT. Kind of like the way you'd imagine it to happen. She even has a puggle! Didn't say if Jake said anything about Boo and he would have wouldn't he? I'm leaning to to believing it, but I think I want more proof.

Stephanie from IHJ posted these pics of Jake jogging on her LJ. So either the encounter on IHJ was BS or he was just in NY for a day.

cina said...

LOL! Ooops, busted! I'd say.

And that encounter also sounded SO not believable. Sorry.

Well, it's possible to fly into NYC for a day and back again on business, but I think it's highly unlikely. Jake has a place in NYC, and he has friends in NYC and for him to just rip in and out would be unusual. He would at least want to spend a teensy bit of time there. I think hte girl's sighting was wishful thinking. Now that she's been told about the pics of him jogging in LA, she is saying that she wasn't sure it was him and it sounded like him and so forth. My vote is: not!Jake at Starbucks. And really. I don't see how anyone who knows about Jake could mistake someone else for him. I mean.

cina said...

^^ Oh god, that makes it even more embarassing.

Anonymous said...

The person who allegedly encountered him in NYC now says the jogging pics was taken the day before she saw him.I think it's all rubbish. He's in LA. As for the TMZ Austin thing, I am equally suspicious. Jake and Austin had lunch in Austin's trailer. How long they were actually in there or whether they were in fact alone in there is total hearsay. Someone says they were in there for hours? All afternoon? All day? What does that mean? It's all relative isn't it. Maybe in reality they were in there for an hour. Maybe part of the time one of them was on the phone. WTF! As careful as Jake is about his personal life...and he is, does anyone really believe he'd go on the set to visit a lover on their job and spend hours in their trailer, alone with them if they really were having a sexual relationship? And did this source know whether they were alone? I'm just saying. I'm not a huge Austin fan. Or a Reese fan. But I'm a HUGE Jake fan, and I hate the way people speculate about his private life, and when a man says that he is straight, why don't people accept/respect that? How can you be a fan and not respect him? There's four people I'd totally love to see him with. His best friend whose a chef, Natalie Portman, Heath, or Ann Hathaway.But it's his life and it's not like I have a shot! LOL!

Get real said...

Thanks for the info, Amy! Oh I so wish you would do the play in NYC. So many cool theatres would be great for a show like yours. Sounds very funny.

1:17 I agree, fans should respect Jake's personal life. Personally, I like Austin Nichols, he has been a friend of his for a while now, he seems an intelligent sweet person. And obviously must be rather close to Jake since he is spending considerable amount of time with him. If they are more than friends, I respect that, and I support it too. There is no set of people I like to see Jake with except the ones he chooses to be with.

I certainly will be there April 26, can't wait!
