We're sort of boycotting the Broadway rumors...

...because it's all very nebulous and Jake hasn't called us yet to confirm, so we figure it can't be set in stone just yet. (If you're wondering, these are the same rumors from June but with a different director and release date...or is it run date? Start date? My technical vocabulary is lacking.) So instead, how about we all sit around and watch an old interview with Matt Lauer? It's less random than it sounds because he's interviewing Jake!

Thanks to Penny Lane for finding this!

Is it bad that I was completely happy just to watch that without sound (I'm at work)...? :-\ Such a pretty smile! When he smiles, I smile, I cant help it! :-)

Well if the story about Jake and Mike Nichols hanging out on MV is true, hopefully we will get confirmation on the play soon.

If you don't like it here, leave. BPB and PG work hard trying to keep us all entertained when there is zilch for Jake news, not to mention all of the work they do on graphics, Jake in 08, etc. They don't have to do this, ya know. I can't believe the amount of disrespect some people have been giving them the past week.

I actually like this JW better. At least here you take the piss out of tabloids and have fun instead of being demented and analysing tabloid crap as if it is true.

If you stay away from "community" politics, it's far better off.

Thanks for the Good irl interview PG & Penny lane, I loved that movie.

And yes, an actual comfirmation would be nice from his people for once, sigh.

I agree with 1:53 AM. I love this site and appreciate the hard work that goes into it.

Keep on keeping on!

Anon 11:17 here, I'm sorry I did not mean to offend anyone, I still love this blog, BPB and PG do a GREAT job. What I miss are the amusing comments some people used to make. A lot of the posters do not seem to comment anymore thats all.

Here here!

And how come everyone's anonymous now?

I don't want to over think this, but does he shake his head when he says his parents support him? Probably an unconscious gesture, but still...

I have to admit that I miss that too. Part of the reason I was lurking so much was that there were just too many witty funny and smart ass commentators.
I always felt I could not match up to them. lol.

Perhaps people have just moved on from Jake as an actor and personality; I think part of that has to do with his extended periods of absence from the big screen.

Yes, there does seem to be a lull in the Jake online fandom of late.
I noticed it on IHJ and IMDB, 2 sites I frequent.

I don't know that I'm considered one of the funny ones, but I am indeed one of the "old posters" here. It's just natural for people to move on or disappear for a while. I have taken a few steps back for a number of reasons, but that doesn't mean I've jumped ship. Also keep in mind it's summer and people are on holiday and stuff so... Plus, as has been mentioned before - Jake hasn't exactly been visible this summer...

Also, I find it incredibly funny that an anonymous poster complains about everyone being anonymous here nowadays. ;)

2008 looks like its gonna be jake free at the movies.
is anyone else worried????

cina said...

I guess he might be doing the play in NY by next fall, and perhaps he wants to focus on that?

The interest in Jake seems to have stopped. JW started at the height of Jake-mania so I was always ready for the drop.

I think some of the hardcore Jake fans have gone to other blogs and there just aren't as many 'casual' fans who just like to have a laugh like there used to be.

It's all Zac Efron these days. Or so I'm told. It's never good when even looking at the world's current crush object makes you feel like a bit of a paedophile.
