Now if you'll excuse me, I must quietly slip away as I have a serious bit of Official Jake Watch Business to take care of this weekend. Highly classified. I hope to have many stories to share when I get back, or at least an autographed copy of Claptrap. I can say no more.
Picture from the fine folks at that other Jake site.
PG - say hi to Gyllenpapa for us, and if Jake is there...I faint at the thought (happy for you, but oh so jealous for me!)
i thought the reading was this weekend? PG, why so cryptic? i'm dying to get your update on JW business!
the poster is... beyond perfect. now if only we can see the frickin movie already!!!
I'm just being stupid (as usual)! I think everyone already knows I'm going to the reading because I haven't been able to shut up about it for weeks. :) Full report to follow! As for Jake, I'm not holding my breath, but it's already more successful than my LA trip, in which he high-tailed it to NYC within days of my departure. At least we'll be in the same city this time! ;)
Poppa G watching, huh? Have a great time.
The poster is brialliant - really atmospheric and spooky. And I love the tagline.
Well, I've said it before: It's a KICK-ASS FUCKING POSTER!!
And good luck on your mission PG! I'll keep my fingers crossed that "a certain someone" is going to be there... :-D Then you know what to do right? ;-)
Oooooh PG have a great time and tell pops we think he, and his lovely family are wonderful!(I was going to say tell him some of us think he's hot too- but that would probably be inappropriate *sigh*.)
Jake is right up there top of the bill- there is such a thing as justice and righteousness in the world after all. Now I just have to work out how to see the movie while blanking the horrible murder parts- that's going to be hard since that is the whole point of the movie *double sigh*- I know for a lawyer I'm a total wimp. Rendition sounds like it's got torture scenes in it too. Jake can you ditch the violence for your next movie please? How about a nice refreshing comedy- you can do social comment and comedy at the same time can't you??
I wish you lots of fun and many tales to tell. Say hi to Gyllenpapa/Gyllengrandpa from us and hopefully you are lucky enough to meet The Sex.
The poster rocks!
As for being in the same city as Jake: I wish we were on the same continent at least. :)
Stop by Kendra's blog and send her good thoughts! Link she's having health problems.
Good luck PG - I've got everything crossed that you'll see Jake!
That poster is fantastic - Jake up there at the top where he deserves..... when will we ever see this film.... I CAN'T STAND IT!!
Off to NYC, I was going to tell you how absolutely, totally, utterly, completely, insanely, spirit crushingly JEALOUS I am…
But seen as I do have moments of being a mature adult I would just like to wish you the BEST EVER time. I hope you really enjoy it, and you never know – as he knows your coming, Poppa G may just have a little surprise for you…
Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to stand in a corner, stamping my feet, screaming and shouting “I WANT TO GO TO NEW YORK!!!!”
I'll join you in that corner, atd.
prophecy girl, have a wonderful time in NYC and I'm looking forward to reading your account of the reading and all the exciting adventures you're going to have in the City that Never Sleeps! Take care!
Have a wonderful visit, PG. Wish I were going...for the poetry of it. Thing is tho, there've been no Jake sightings since 10/8. I'm guessing he's probably hanging in Brooklyn helping his sister and Peter and Ramona get settled in. He'll probably drive Papa to his reading and hang around to take him back to the borough so they can all oogle Ramona. At least this is my fantasy take on it.He wouldn't DARE leave town with PG headed his way.
i’ll echo penny lane’s comment— if the LA edition of prophecy girl’s adventures (in search of the sex) was any indication, we’re in for a treat =). i’m looking fwd to a thorough account of your NY trip! have you set out an itinerary yet? i’m thinking all jake’s popular haunts in w. village/chelsea area, maybe some shopping places in soho—i’m already coming up with a mental list of some places he’s been spotted at more than once. much of it is common knowledge (to jake freaks like us), but i’d rather not post it here (it’s prolly silly, but with the likes of us weekly scouring the web, don’t want to give the paps any tips, u know?). i’m sure you have plans already, but let me know if u need help brainstorming a list of places and i’ll email u!
i hope you see jake!!!
6:28:PM: He may still be around. There have been a few days between sigthings and pap pics before believe it or not! The 8th, that's 3 days, maybe he is in Brooklyn. He is scheduled to attend 2 functions over the weekend: The screening of Marie Antoinette at Lincoln Center tomorrow :He's on the VIP list and also an awards event in Midtown Manhattan on Monday. Doesn't mean he will attend though.
Oh PG i bet he will stay in LA now that your going to NY! That would really suck!
I will be very surprised if he goes to the MA screening. For a lot of reasons. One being that there has been a lot of mention in all these articles about KD, regarding their relationship and her saying it's over. I believe they still keep in touch and probably remain friends. If he came to her screening, it might be a huge distraction. All the press would write about is Jake/KD and not give enuf attention to KD/MA and, of course, Sofia.
ProphecyGirl, do enjoy yourself mightily in Manhattan. I'll be in the East Village this coming Saturday -- going down to 4th Street for a play & seeking bargains at the dying Tower Records & some stuff from Kiehl's that smells like tea-tree oil. But not sure I'll come down to the Zinc Bar on Sunday night. (You see, I belong to that corporate poetry establishment that Cantara isn't too crazy about, so it's probably for the best.) But I do indeed wish the Gyllengrandpa the best of luck at his reading & many copies of his book signed & sold. It's always exhilarating when a poetry reading is well-attended & comes off well. Give Jake our best. (Though frankly, I'm a little doubtful he'd chance a Manhattan personal appearance like that, lest someone leap upon him unexpectedly & attempt to tear off scraps from his shirt as holy relicts. Or am I projecting? ;-)
Very exciting indeed. PG is one of most highly trained agents and I'm sure she'll come up with the goods.
I'd like to point out that I was invited too but could not afford plane tickets. I could not even afford to hitchhike on the back of a pirate barge.
Miss D I feel exactly the same about the potential violence in his upcomiong movies...I am such a big jessie when it comes to screen violence. I think Zodiac will be okay....I think I will be able to keep my eyes shut adn my fingers in my ears during the murder scenes and still manage not to miss any Jakeness....Redention may be a different matter though....
That's too bad Brits. Let's hope he comes to the UK at some point so you can go too.
wtf did I just call Jake's alleged next movie?!!!! just honing my skills before my interview with Us weekly.... ;)
7:34PM: But if he is on the VIP list, he can void the press. Jake doesn't do the Red carpet anymore(Missing at the MTV and Espys). That would be the only place they would "make a fuss". If he slips in late through another entrance, they will miss him. I've attended the NYFF and plenty of celebrites managed to attend w/o their pics showing up on wireimages, we will see.
They must pretty much keep in touch or else the invitation would have never been offered to him weeks in advance, he must have told her that he might still be in NY on the 13th, same thing with the event on the 16th.
Have fun in NYC, PG! Good luck!
Have fun in NYC, PG! Good luck!
VIP lists for film screenings re done with the media in mind. Publicists usually arrange them coordinating with staff from the studio who distributes. Aside from personal friends and family, it is a very impersonal undertaking. The VIP lists are usually filled with high profile, big names to generate buzz and get good coverage.Most of them don't show. The reason for a celeb to go is to get publicity and be seen. Or to network with people they may be getting ready to work with or hope to work with. There might be 200 high profile industry people on a VIP list and if 50 show up it's considered a good day.
Britpop said. . .
I'd like to point out that I was invited too but could not afford plane tickets.
Invited? Invited by whom? There are invitations for Pop's reading??? Dang.
Have a great time Prophecy Girl. I'm sure you'll do the agency proud.
And sorry Britpop. I feels your pain. It's like the one who won lunch on the set with Jake and could not afford the air fayre.
By the way, is anyone getting a 'Masters of the Universe' vibe from that Zodiac poster? Nope? Just me then.
8:36: True, but i might want to point out that it's a bit odd that an invitation would be extended to him considering he really lives in LA. I could see if the screening was in LA and they just sent it off to his people hoping he will show, but this is a NY screening and yeah, he spends just as much time here as LA. Just saying that most likely Kristen was informed that he may still be in NY on the 13th, didn't say he would show, Jake seems to be avoiding stuff like this, a big turn off like the paparazzi IMO. I'm actually more curious to find out if he will show up at the other event on Monday, some awards gala because it takes place down the block where I work!!
MTV he was nominated for award and repped the film. ESPY he was a presenter. He had a function fulfill both times.I'd personally love to see him out and about, but these things are really work for actors, not fun as it might be for us civilians. There's no novelty in it for them. I was hoping to catch word of or pics of him attending some of the screenings at the NYFF, not just MA. Seems like at festival time, whether it's Tribeca or NYFF there's a lot going on. Deals are struck, info about what is or isn't getting greenlighted, schmoozing with producers & directors, etc. As far as celebs attending screenings, I've seen actors get accused of trading on someone else's moment to get attention. It's sometimes an unfair criticsm, but there it is. I don't think anyone would ever accuse Jake of that, but there is a sort of 'etiquette' to it all. Of course, an actor can be told by his minders that he has to attend an event. Like if Warners is distributing your next film, and they are having a big do for aomething else and they say, "be there." I don't know if any of this applies, but it's not all as straightforward as it might seem.
I'm holding Dutch Elle magazine responsible...
Did they come to your assistance during the infamous Ebay auction?...
Think of the great story they could have for their Dutch readers ...if they would just consider:
"The Britpopbaby's Comming to America" story....
a detailed account of a young idealistic bright-eyed British Girl Agent....sent to the urban underground of Manhattan...absorbing poetry in the brick lined walls Zinc Bar...so beatnik, so Jack Kerowac....
propped against the back wall,at a cafe table,in a trench coat and dark glasses.
Cigarette smoke wafting in air...(until your asked to put it out)....
Too bad that ...US Weekly...which prides it's self on scoops, that are of dubious sources...just skip the pursuit of truth altogether.
Provide their readers with tongue in cheek semi-truth...
Will these bloated Riga-mortised media giants ever grasp the future?...hmm?
Thank you, everyone! I'm really sad that I'm not going to have a support staff to come with me, but as brits said, I've been extensively trained for these sorts of circumstances. Except not really. I'm kinda nervous. Stay tuned for the exclusive report (and by "exclusive," I mean US Weekly ain't gettin' shit).
PG, I'm sooo jealous. I will be arriving in NYC on Monday! Oh, well, I'll miss this reading but there is always Boulder, Colorado next February! I WILL be THERE -- and at the screening of Waterland with Stephen the next night -- I hope. Have fun, PG.
The poster is fabulous and you,PG,are one lucky agent!Please,please make us look good and smart there! And have a great time with the Gyllenhaals (no limits is the key)! And write everything down,so you won't forget it..ok,ok,I'll stop now. It all resumes to..have fun in New York,PG!!
...I am such a big jessie when it comes to screen violence.
Big Jessies of the world unite!
Luckily(?) I can take my hearing aid out, put a finger in the other ear and be stone deaf leaving me a free hand for snacks and drinks...
wow. i love the poster, its powerful... when does the trailer come?
Don't miss new IMDB Zodiac review (Message Boards).
^^ WOW! That was a great review!! :-)
is it me, or does it look like those bridge suspender thingies are closed eyelids/eyelashes? i'm liking the sleeping-monster feel, the effect is almost darko-esque-- which is definitely good=)
Did you all see that they've put up the auction items? A lot of stuff worn by Jake. (Isn't that the denim shirt from the first scene? And I remember a photo of him with those gloves on -- he's biting on a string that tightens them?)
Smurfette, good observation..!
thanks, anon 3:13. those are nice items, wow! but why no socks?? hehe
There's also a review of Zodiac on aintitcoolnews.com. High praise from the reviewer who says it's one of the best films he's seen all year. Great news - only six months to wait before we see it in the UK.
(Sob...sob...) Where Is Jake? Not one single new sighting since 10/8!
Not even a mention much less a picture!
6:48PM Unless he is back in LA which doesn't make sense since the paps hound them there as well!! The longest we have gone without pap pics or sigthings was when he was in MV, almost two weeks!
If he is still in NY most likely he is in Brooklyn at Maggie and Peters new place, if so that would explain the lack of sightings and pics.
Oh YES, baby, that is one AWESOME poster!!! It makes me so darn proud and happy to see Jake's name up there in the center! *squeee* And of course, the torture of knowing I won't be able to see the film for another five freaking months is getting worse by the minute!!
Aah, PG, I hope you're having a FAB time in NYC!! Jealous?! Who, me?! Naaaah....
