[Vanessa]: Do you know about the Jake in ‘08 presidential campaign? It was a MySpace page but it got taken down recently.
Jake: “Wow, no, I don’t.”
Damn you, Jake. Damn you! It was gold, I tell you. GOLD! Maybe one day it will be recreated. Or not. Man, that was a lot of fucking work...on second though, make that, "damn you, MySpace! Damn you!!"
I want to give a HUGE thank you to Vanessa at Green as a Thistle for asking this question for us. Vanessa, you're wonderful!!! Read her Jake update HERE. Ironically, her interview puts the future of yet another MySpace page in question. At this rate, my updating duties will be non-existent by the end of the month.
Rendition stuff when I get back! (Sorry for the false advertising in the last post.)
Here's a link to an interview (very short) with Jake and Reese talking about Rendition from e-talk on Canadian TV.

Would 21st Century America vote for a bearded president?
Thanks for the interesting link PG. That sounds like he really did not know about your MySpace page. And about Boo, perhaps he got sick and died. (And I can only imagine what 'funny things' people send Jake via the Internet..!)
He doesn't have his puggle?! That makes me sad...
But thanks for the link, that was awesome!!
I still can't believe the deletion of the MS page, Jake for president would've been soooo cool!! Maybe this got him thinkin, though...? ;-)
This week's hot Hollywood couple, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal, danced briefly but divinely last night at a beyond-posh Toronto Film Festival party co-sponsored by TIME magazine. Across the way in the huge Design Exchange room, once home to the Toronto Stock Exchange, George Clooney stood in a corner, pinned by the admiration of other, less famous swells. If the three eminences had come there to schmooze with a TIME movie critic, they missed their big chance. Even so, they seemed as happy as celebrities ought to be, given their privileged status in our bi-national movie culture.
from Vanessa's blog:
Me: Many of your fans are wondering if you still have Boo, your puggle? They haven’t seen him in a while.
Jake: (After a few seconds pause, then a sigh of what sounds like lament, he looks to the floor and responds) “I don’t have my puggle … I don’t have my puggle.”
How sad is this!? More importantly, what the hell does it mean!? Does Boo refuse to leave the house after stabbing someone with an open pair of scissors? Did he (gulp) die? Did he go live with relatives? Did he say Enough's enough and if you expect me to walk on my own, then I'm walking out of here?
This only deepens the mystery IMO.
Even though Jake doesn't really know PG (although they've just met), I have a feeling that he knows her work. Specifically, her photoshop work. Can't you just imagine Peter S. chortling to himself wickedly as he e-mails off a jpeg of Marilyn Jake or Royal Jake in Ermine or something like that to a select list of friends? (BTW, one of my favorite moments of PG's encounter is Peter S. good-humoredly signing Jake's photo.)
It's official: I must cease my attraction to Jake Gyllenhaal if the dude can't respect the cilantro. I mean, come on, it's the greatest herb there is! This has really lowered him significantly in my opinion. That, and the whole disappearance of Boo thing, that's just shady...
By the way, great work, PG, I'm so happy you finally made contact!!!
^Raw corriander/cilantro is the devil's own herb. It's horrible!
Interesting Jake interview from today's Toronto Star:
You can't fault Jake or anyone for not liking cilantro. It's a genetic thing - to some people it tastes great, and to others it tastes like soap. Kind of like some people genetically have the ability to roll their tongue and others can't.
I still can't believe that MySpace deleted the Jake in '08 page, it makes no sense.
I had a bad feeling about Boo when we didn't see him since last Aug. Sigh.
Can't wait for your review PG!!
PS: Jake is in NY, he was at the US Open on Sunday.
"I get about 15 emails a day from my mother," he laughs. "And each one has links to all these political blogs she thinks I should check out."
This is TIFF related and kind of gossipy: Jake and Reese skipped the Rendtion after dinner on 9/7. Istead they attended the Time co-sponsered party for the Clooney film Michael Clayton according to Richard Corliss from Time magazine. Just saying.....
Poor Jake. I wonder what happened?
"Jake in 08" was the best ever MySpace!
I still have my links up! R.I.P
"Jake and Reese skipped the Rendtion after dinner on 9/7."
Not true. I was at the New Line and LEVEL 1 parties, which they both attended.
^^^ Which is exactly why we don't encourage such discussions here. Tsk, tsk, 7.00. You know "gossip" is a dirty a word on Jake Watch...
The Q&A made the front page :
10:57 Then they attend both, good for them.
I'm not very interested in Rendition. I miss the interesting, off the radar, films he used to make like Donnie Darko, October Sky, and The Good Girl. Now he's crossed over to typical mainstream fair like Day After Tomorrow, Proof, Zodiac, and Rendition. No thanks.
I am so sad to hear about Boo. I thought he was adorable. I am surprised, since such a specific question was asked of him, why Jake didn't explain WHY he doesn't have his puggle anymore. True, it's no one's business, and perhaps he's too upset to discuss it, but still. . .I hope the reason behind Boo's disappearance is not a sad story. If Jake got rid of him, I may no longer be able to be a fan. Not liking cilantro is just dumb but not liking his innocent little puggle-wuggle. . .completely unacceptable!
