Remember that time that Jake hosted The Daily Show?

Probably not, because it never happened, although my backlog of Photoshop files does suggest otherwise:
Before we get started, I need to give a SERIOUS shout out to Danielle of the Sarsgaard Soiree and Nicole of this post who met Jake today as he was going into his taping of "The Daily Show." They stuck around to see him after the taping, too, and Jake noticed, telling Nicole she was "a good fan" for waiting. I'm going to overlook the soul-crushing bitterness that comes from Jake having never said such a thing to me (ahem) and say good job girls! I'm not the least bit jealous. Here is the fabulous video (thank you Danielle!!):


And so tonight marks the third and final live-blogging experience in the Rendition Publicity Blitz, referred to in some circles as "Jake Week." We don't refer to it as such in our circle because on Jake Watch, every week is Jake Week. This week is just a week where our posts come later in the day than other weeks.

Three hours to go!

Two hours and forty-five minutes later: An announcer tells us to stay tuned because "Jon picks up what Jake Gyllenhaal puts down." I can't even begin to guess what that means.

10:00 - Yes! A show that starts at a semi-reasonable hour! This week has taught me how grateful I am that I don't live in the Eastern time zone.

10:01 - After mentioning Stephen Colbert's Presidential campaign, Jon promises to ask Jake if he's ever "sucked a fuck." He mentions Donnie Darko chatrooms (what?) but not Jake Watch OR JAKE'S BID FOR THE PRESIDENCY!! Son of a BITCH. We're going to come up empty on this aren't we? The opening was RIGHT THERE!

10:06 - An R. Kelly impersonator sings a song about Senator Larry Craig, leading me to believe this is going to be a stranger than usual Daily Show.

10:20 - The pie chart scene. I think I could recite this scene from memory at this point.

10:21 - At long last! And thanks to the video above, you already know what Jake is wearing!

10:21 - Jake and Jon "woo!" at each other. Jake calls The Daily Show "the rock show of talk shows" and then they do monster truck announcer impersonations together.

10:21 - More Red Sox talk. Did I mention my lack of baseball knowledge (*cough*interest*cough*)?

10:22 - Jake cracks a Giuliani joke. (Ooh, political!)

10:22 - Jake says "Gyllenhaal in the Green Monster" and I'll let the context of that slide for the moment.

10:24 - Jake and Jon discuss their sporting challenge (continuing from Jake's previous visit to the show). Jon calls Jake "virile" and a woman in the audience calls Jon "decrepit." Snort.

10:25 - Jake calls Meryl Streep a bitch. HA! He then says "She's a hot bitch."

10:25 - Jake concedes that Meryl's discussion of the film makes it unnecessary for him to talk about it. As I said in my post yesterday. So where is the campaign talk?!

10:28 - More focus on the Colbert Presidential campaign.

And then it's done and all of those wonderful opportunities to plug Jake in '08 are suddenly gone. And Jon never asked about Jake sucking a fuck. And I still don't know what the announcer was referring to in the promo before the show (unless it was just generic announcer talk). I officially give up! I'm also officially going to bed. Good night!

Arghgh. Jealous, jealous, jealous.

And for you, too, PG!

Doesn't look like I'm going to get that nap in.

Yay for the ladies who ran into Jake! I'll bet they didn't get to sniff his beard, though.

Prophecy Girl said...

Anon, I know! Argh!!

No, I know them both and they both totally deserved an awesome encounter. :D I can't wait to see the video!! They got pictures with him, too, and said he was extremely nice.

Cherita, I'm nap-less as well. What's wrong with us?! ;D

BirdGirl said...

After I re watched Conan, I finally got a nap in. I sat down to watch some non Jake related TV and I was out for about 30 mins. Now I am refreshed and ready to go.

I am so jealous, I mean proud of our fellow Gyllenhaalics. It sounds like a great encounter. He is such a sweetie.

Prophecy Girl said...

Donnie Darko chatrooms?!??! ARGH! We're so not getting any mention. :(

How dare he not mention Jake's bid for the presidency? I bet it's Colbert's doing - he can't stand the competition!

Anonymous said...

Who cares about R. Kelly and Larry Craig, Jon? Give us Jake - a whole show of Jake, Jake, and nothing but Jake! :-)

BirdGirl said...

I thought it was pretty good. I am having a hard time with a the Red Sox talk though. You all know how I feel about the Red Sox.

Thanks again, PG, for giving up the sleep to help us all!

Ellen tomorrow, and then I'm guessing we won't be seeing Jake for a while. Sigh.

Just watched the video - she talked to him, touched him, and even remained coherent! How did she not faint???

Because he's a human being just like you and me, maybe that's got to do with it.

Great vid! Lucky gal. ^^

Shamrock said...

Those lucky gals that got to meet him. And again if I am right...

The show was hilarious. Meryl is a hot bitch... OMG i thought i was gonna lose it.

heddaparsons said...

Crap on a stick, no mention of Jake in '08, sigh. Jake should have been booked on The Steve Cohbert show instead.

Again, thanks for the blogging PG and congratulatons to Nicole and Danielle !

S4M985 said...

He was great, from the videos ive seen he was just awesome. But im confused, whats with them asking him about the red socks??? Although his impression of his mates at one of the games had me in fits of laugher for about 10 mins!!! i had to rewatch it once my eyes stopped watering so i could actually take it in! Thanks for your live blogs PG, they are hallarious especially when you dont know whats really goin on! lol!

Xenia said...

Thank you PG, great live-blogging!

The show was hilarious, Jake is in a very good shape but yeah what's with all of them asking about baseball?

NY Agent said...

I guess all the baseball talk is due to the fact that they all know now that Jake is a big Red Sox fan and that the team is one game away from either missing the WS or breathing life into their hopes.

Thanks for the live blogging PG, great work!

BirdGirl said...

Great job PG! It's been a great week. I am sorta upset that we didn't get anyone to ask him about Jake in 08. I never really expected any of them to have the balls any way. Let's look on the bright side everyone. Freaking Rendition comes out tomorrow!

Okay first of all ... anon 621 ... who are you ? Meryl Streep ? Oh wait ... Jake didn't say just "bitch" ... he said "hot bitch" ... sorry, my mistake. Take your attitude and shove it. Let people be happy for other people.

Sorry ... having a bad day and had to get that off of my more than ample chest ...

PG thank you for staying up for all of us and live blogging ... since I *AM* on the East Coast I had to suffer through waiting to watch it on youtube (dammit why wasn't I born rich instead of so darn good looking?) due to work and sleep constraints ... but I did get to watch the show last night at least ... at first I was like "Did I fall asleep and miss half of it?" cuz it was so dang short ! And I thought they had plenty of opportunities to mention Jake in '08 ! Oh well ... such is life. Can't wait to get home to see the video of the girls getting to meet Jake; that is awesome and I am happy for them !

Hope everyone has a great day ! It's been a great Jake week ! :) (LOL at every week being Jake week here at JakeWatch JW/JW) :)

coffeecat said...

PG - argh! I can not BELIEVE he mentioned that she was a "good fan" and didn't say it to you. I am SO outraged on your behalf. And, up until the time the fangirl comes up to Jake and he turns around, that could have been YOU there filming the back of his head. Tell you what, Life's Not Fair.
