NO, REALLY, WE ARE ON HIATUS

Except for this post about Cannes because dammit, the Jake influx is out of control, as it tends to be when he's either promoting a film or in France (and in this case it's both). So here's a little to hold you over:
Jake on a boat. Oooh, nautical!

Jake in a video HERE and HERE.

Jake in more pictures HERE and HERE and...pretty much if you go to any standard photo site (WireImage, Getty Images, Ramey Pix) you will find picture after picture after picture of Jake. So many, in fact, that you might think you're in France with him. Maybe. I did. For like 2 seconds. Man, it was awesome. OK, I'm totally lying.

Even more pictures can be found at IHJ, which is where we also got this witty, Beatle-esque interview with Big G from crazy French television:

Q: How do you feel playing real people (meaning Robert Graysmith)?
Jake: I’ve played real people before

Q: Did your life changed after BBM, success wise?
Jake: My life changed in a way that I never came to Cannes before and now I’m here

Q: How is your last name pronounced
Jake asked an actress sitting next to him –“Can you pronounce my last name?”

They then asked him to sing a song and showed the dreamgirls song in SNL.
Jake: I never sing without my dress

When they kept insisting and started to shout, he sang “Night Fever”


Yes, folks. Night Fucking Fever. We wouldn't expect any less from Jake and, as usual, he delivered in a major way.

As more inevitably comes to light, feel free to post in the comments.

Big thanks to Penny Lane for compiling most of this and Just Jared for letting us steal the above picture.

I LOVE his version of a self-portrait video!! LMFAO! Jake you prankster! ;)

Okay, I'm off to see Zodiac now. Tataa!

That interview sounds so funny! I wish it was online, I'd love to see it. ITA PG, it does sound Beatles-esque, it could have come straight out of A Hard Day's Night.

He is in such a great mood...to be in Cannes for the very first time, and representing his film in competition!!! That's almost as good as it gets!!! And he looks so damned elegant and cool and sexy...*ded!* In some of the pics, I think the blonde is Diane Kruger (Troy, National Treasure). She is the Mistress of Ceremonies for the Festival. (Speaks a zillion languages.)I love that he's having so much fun with all the silliness of the pomp and ceremony. The French take film so very seriously.
It's ripe for a dark comedy.
I love the video, love all the pics. I hope he has big fun!!!!
And I hope any JW agents, Lashers, or IHJ-ers who are in the neighborhood have VERY happy stories to post!

How I wish there were video of that entire "interview," including the singing. I think I could live for months on that, without even food or water...just Jake's adorableness to sustain me...*sigh*

britpopbaby said...

I know. Sometimes I really fucking hate him but we always end back up in the same place we started. Like Pammy and Tommy-Lee.

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ That is the most beautiful Jake Watch analogy I've ever read.

theshowerlady said...

"like Pammy and Tommy Lee!"

LMAO!!! OY!

OK. This one picture of Jake, no tie, lavender shirt. Background is a glass wall or window of bldg.Group shot:a man in tan suit, no tie, short, blondish hair standing in back by the glass wall/window. In front of the man is a woman. She has long, brownish, reddish, blonde hair, parted on side, huge sunglasses on.
Black sleeveless sundress with square neckline. Long gold chain around her neck with dangling gold jewel. Jake is slightly in front of and to the right of her in sunglasses. There are two brunettes in the picture, one Asian, with heads turned away from camera. The woman with the sunglasses, long hair, necklace, etc. I think is the same girl from the GQ sponsored Zodiac party. The one he was hugging up. The one who helped him with his Armani. Someone said she was GQ "special Projects" something, and knew her name. I think our agents need to be very alert.

It sounds like Jake and David Fincher have resolved their differences:

I want to see party pictures! They have already posted red carpet pictures for the VIP in- competition screening that's taking place as we speak.
Oh, to be in Cannes. Seeing them arriving by boat makes me think they're staying at
Cap d'Antibes and just coming in for events. The beach area and the streets of Cannes proper are a real carnival of strange, and crowded with tons of touristas. Nearer the center, they have very tight scurity by VIP tents for sponsors and for private parties. There are also private parties on yachts. Such decadence! Hope Jake is having fun!

Wandering around the interent looking at photos of Jake at Cannes, I don't see how he can stand it. All the screaming nad all the phographers from the minute his baot pulled into the harbor. Sheesh. Hope he is staying somewhere where he can have some privacy and fun!

Oops! Line one: meant "internet."

I've only had three Margaritas...
I don't understand.....

That whole interview came from a poster at Waiting for Toothy who transcribed it off her own TV. Those are her words verbatim and "Penny Lane" must have yanked them. At least give credit where credit is due. I'm quite sure you'll delete this post but you should at least update where your info came from.

9:38 - posts are only deleted on WFT.

Carla said...

9.38 - I posted the interview first at IHJ and I gave credit to an "anonymous poster at WFT". You must be aware that those information will be all over the net and things are spreaded between the fansides especially concerning such an amazing event.

From another radio interview I learned that Jake obviously stays in the "Eden Roc" hotel near
Cap d `Antibes. And you can be sure that nobody will be able to come near that hotel...Most of the A-list stars are residing there.

Prophecy Girl said...

Jesus Christ. I saw the interview several places and it was credited as being taken from IHJ. This is not a fucking news organization. Get over it. If I complained every time something I did wound up somewhere without the proper credit, I'd have quit a long time ago. It's called the internet. Shit happens. It certainly wasn't an intentional snub and I didn't list what Penny Lane was and was not responsible for so don't drag her into this. I'll take full blame for not giving credit to someone who didn't even list their name with the original post. I'm sorry. But I won't be bullied into changing the post.

The festival will run thru May 27th. That's when they have closing ceremonies and announce the winners. It's usually televised..even on American TV...but on cable. Like maybe Bravo or IFC or smething. Anyway. Iwonder if Jake will stay in Cannes or if he will come home (to NYC) and then go back if they get a call that they won. Of course, eing in Cannes when Clooney and the gang show up could be a lot of fun. And he's never done it before.
But still. He might be missed.

Anonymous said...

I hope he comes over to London for a few days, if there's a chance he might have to go back to Cannes. It makes more sense than going back to States, and apparently Maggie is here too at the moment.Not that I would be lucky enough to bump into him, but it would increase my chances! And he could go on Jonathan Ross too while he's here!

Anonymous said...

If Maggie, Peter and Ramona are in London, and Heath, Michelle and Matilda are, too,plus Jake has other friends in London, I bet he does pop in. I wonder if he will be needed in Cannes to schmooze jurors... or maybe for other business reasons. Or just to hang out and visit with people. Natalie Portman is supposed to be there. Blueberry Nights is in Competition. (So is Gael Garcia Bernal...for a film he directed I think. A short film?)Wonder if "other people" will be trekking to London...or to Cap d' Antibes???
This could produce such a glam screenplay!!!

The Jake´s boots are very old but must be confortable!

anon 12:01 here. I was looking at pictures from Cannes and they showed Jake, Mark, Chloe and Fincher leaving the theatre after the show was over and there was one shot where Jake and Fincher were shaking hands with each other and it looked like a "Good-bye and Good luck," type handshake. So maybe Jake is leaving Cannes. Fincher might stick around bcz of Brad Pitt who is producing and starring in Benajmin Button, with Fincher directing, and Brad's due in for Ocean's 13 and A Mighty Heart. So maybe the UK folk might get lucky..or maybe the LA folk might get lucky...or the NYC folk.
Can JW agents do world wide alerts?

welliwont said...

That's lame. why would he leave so soon? he just got there! Jake! Stay! Have some fun! (but not with that brown-haired girl).

oops, am I allowd to say that? I was jk....

Anonymous said...

5:08, I saw that picture but I didn't get that Jake was leaving Cannes. It seemed like good night and congrats on a good opening. Jake is staying at the most exclusive hotel with all the A-listers I don't think he would go all that way and leave after two days. I could be wrong but I feel he will be around until the closing or possibly in London with Maggie. Guess we will find out soon.

Carla said...

It is very unusual that an actor stays much more than three days in Cannes and I have never heard that one of them stayed for the whole time. Most of them are happy to leave the madness. Too many paps, press people and crazy tourists
:-))

Visiting Maggie in London sounds plausible - lets wait and see.

britpopbaby said...

But I didn't think anyone from the chat room read JW anymore?














:D

theshowerlady said...

too true, carla. Hanging out in Cannes for ten days gives the wrong people (the ones who do the hiring) the impression that you have nothing else to do. Unless you are bigger than A-list and you have rented an entire small town, or a villa, and have brought your sixteen children and an entourage that includes both sets of grandparents...for a vacation.

the video of this interview is on the official site of the show but you have to be registered.
I think it's free but you have to give all your details (address, etc...)
I can't be bothered, because I've seen it when it aired, but if anyone wants to try :

https://secure-canalplus.canal-plus.com/index_popup.php?pid=1&cid=41387&tpl=108&init=1&mess_page=9

the show is called "le grand journal de Cannes"
and of course the site is in French :)

Get real said...

I understand about the craziness at Cannes and how celebs probably want to get out as quick as possible but the hotel Jake is at is not directly in Cannes so I thought he might stay for a few days. However it looks like he is going to London for all you UKers (and that means you, Brits! ;) according to IHJ and The Daily Mail. Also check out the great videos that have interviews with Jake from Cannes looking amazing. I love all the pics of Jake looking beautiful in a suit and tux. *sigh*

get real said...

^^ Oops, lol that last link takes you to a different, but amusing Jake story. HERE is the link to all the IHJ goodness. And to THIS Yahoo! article mentioning Jake going to London.

heddaparsons said...

I realy loved the pictures of Jake in Cannes. Nothing better than him in a suit and tie, my favorite look for him. Sigh.

I didn't think he would stay in Cannes for the entire time.

N.Y. Gal said...

This was posted over on the DC Forum by ellye. Jake was quoted in an interview he did for the Daily Mail. They asked him his plans after Cannes and after he said he plans on visiting Maggie in LOndon, he says this:

Then he's thinking about appearing in a new play in New York. "I get offered revivals, but I like the danger of doing something new" he said, "and I'm hoping it'll reflect the state of our country"

Yes, please!!! Last year when he seemed to be spending most of his free time in NY, I was hoping that was because he was looking for a play to do. I think it's a fantastic idea and one his mento, Dustin Hoffman suggested any actor should do betwen films.

theshowerlady said...

The prospect of Jake on Broadway or Off-Broadway doing a play is so amazing! Unfortunately, I think Jake is on the brink of MAJOR ROCK STAR status. The crowds screaming for him, etc. And for him to do a play in NYC may prove to be very taxing...on NYC! LOL!(Him too!)
I know. We've had Julia Roberts and Hugh Jackman and Patrick Wilson recently. But this is Jake. Oy! And I would SO be there. (Orlando Bloom was on Leno talking about playing the West End. How cool. I think the Brits are a bit more civilized about their actors doing stage work.)

Zodiac related:

The DVD will be released on 7/27. This is the cover for the DVD, Jake looks a little weird IMO, no extras announced yet but I heard that Jake already did the commentary for it:

I hope Jake will do a play in N.Y. even a limited run would do. I think it's something that he has been thinking about and I think it would be a great idea. I'm sure New Yorkers will be on their best behavior!

Prophecy Girl said...

2.36, I never thought I'd live to see the day when I'd say this, but Jake looks TERRIBLE in that picture. Not to mention the confusion of having the heads in a different order than the names up top. Oh, Paramount. How can you continue to be this inept?

Anonymous said...

PG: 2:36 here: I didn't notice the names were not in order I was too distracted by the picure. Jake looks haggard and older than he is. I hope that this isn't the final art work for this. I agree with you regarding Paramount: bad promotion all around, that's one of the reasons IMO it pretty much died at the BO despite excellent reviews.It's getting great reviews overseas as well. I just hope it does a little better over there. It's a shame, Jake, Mark, Robert, etc put so much into this movie.

theshowerlady said...

Oh, PG I SO agree with you!!! Thing is, Paramount sub contracts that crap out to marketing firms and advertising firms who do it. They have to approve it of course.
I think New Yorker will be fine with Jake on stage. It's the touristas who will be going apeshit crazy...I should know. I'm a tourista! LOL!

get real said...

If you guys notice at the link with the Zodiac DVD cover you can leave comments. Some have already mentioned the pictures. I really hope they go with the cover like the poster. I think all three guys don't look good, but Jake doesn't look good at all. :/

get real said...

The good news is that it was mentioend in some of the Cannes press that Jake already did the audio commentary for the Zodiac DVD!!

Here is the Daily Mirror interview where he mentions the play among other things:
