    this movie looks like it could be really great, what a talented cast, i hope it lives up to the potential.

  • New York Pundit

    Brokeback Jake? Oh please… Where is his talent outside of the role of Pink Cowboy??

  • emma

    i was talking about Meryl and Reese, who i think are both enormously talented. but i think Jake’s pretty talented too, looks a great cast to me

  • nona

    please — enough with the euphemisms. let’s call it what it is ‘unorthodox interrogations’ = torture. courtesy of gwb.

  • Lori

    Aww thanks for the pictures of Jake.

  • Minnesota_dude

    Jake is actually one of the genuinely talented twenty something actors in H-town, alongside Heath Ledger and maybe Elijah Wood.

    That said this whole torture suicide bomber premise seems a little scary. Who knows how it will fare at the box office.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Lets hope this doesnt BOMB like Zodiac did.

  • Minnesota_dude

    Zodiac, ouch! But at least it got good reviews.

  • ++++

    who’s the girl with the scarf???

  • Please

    New York Pundit, please grow up. Idiots like you ruin the internet.

    Agree with you Minnesota_dude, that Jake is extremely talented. Can’t wait to see this movie.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    reviews mean absolutely nothing!

  • mrs grated cheese


    The folks at PEOPLE disagree. He’s been on thier most beautiful list two years in a row.

  • Anon.

    I don’t need a magazine to tell me he’s beautiful! Jake is absolutely delicious. And talented. Rendition sounds like it could be an amazingly good film. BTW:Zodiac isn’t a flop. Not at all. It has very good reviews and so has Jake’s work in the film. Thanks JARed for the pictures. Now that Jake is finished promoting Zodiac, these pictures are the only thing we’ll see for a lonnnng time. Jake will be working in Africa, I think, for at least another 6 weeks according to imdb.

  • Miller

    I have no idea why I’m attracted to this man, but I am, damn it. I guess I fall for that whole “nice guy” routine, even though my mind is telling me it’s bullshit. Him dating Kirsten Dunst totally made me suspicious of him. I doubt he’s dating Reese (now that’s an actress).


    ngek.. whatever.. mukha ngang maganda ‘to at kaabang-abang.. uuuyy.. jake and reese.. yihee..

  • gurl

    I also hope it’ll do better than Zodiac. And i have to agree with the poster who said that reviews mean nothing. Zodiac got rave reviews still nobody went to see it.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    [Anon] Zodiac didn’t flop?!?

    It did horrible numbers.. after all that promoting Jake did, once the movie came out it was forgotten about. I thought by now people would know reviews don’t mean NOTHING! some of the best films out got terrible reviews.

    Zodiac tanked at the box office. Jake is a nice guy, but he doesn’t have that ‘it’ factor to make people want to watch his movies.

  • gurl

    I agree, Jake seems to be a nice guy. That’s why i feel a bit sorry for him. Zodiac looked so promising. Let’s hope Rendition will be both a critically and commercailly successful film.

  • blah

    heaven help us if you ever manage to see a film with a truly talented actor.

  • Please

    Fug Face Maniston, Jake definitely has the “It” factor. He seems to have a lot of fans. Again, it wasn’t his fault the film didn’t do well. I thought he and the movie were excellent. But it seems it was the topic, length and the time of year that I think made the biggest factor. If this had come out in the fall I think it would have done much better. Everyone is putting the failure on him, but the movie had Robert Downey Jr. too. Does that make him a failure at the box office? You could say a lot of talented actors and movies that are popular have had box office failures at times. Doesn’t mean they shouldn’t continue to make good films. For all the crappy “Wild Hogs” and “300″ I would rather see ten “Zodiac”.

    I do hope “Rendition” is both a box office and critical success for Jake.

  • Minnesota_dude

    Its becoming harder and harder this days for a single actor to pull in an audience. Look at Leo Dicaprio (Blood Diamond didn’t even scrape back half of its reported $70mill budget), Brad Pitt (Babel made beep at the box office), George Clooney and Tobey Maguire (the Good German) Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie (the Good Shepard)

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    To # 21

    [Please] To say Jake has the ‘it’ factor, would be like saying, he is on the level of such actors as Cruise, Leo, Clooney, Pitt, Farrell, Bale, and many more… Jake isn’t even on Matt Damon’s level.

    Jake is like a Ryan Phillipe, [Lmao] but maybe not as good (and I don’t like boring Ryan)

    Jake is a nice guy, You could tell from all the promoting of Zodiac he did, Cool, tries to be funny, but to me… when I see him I still think of Bubble Boy.

    I hate the Predator [Reese] but her name holds more weight than Jake’s does so I’m sure this movie wont do as bad as ‘Zodiwack’ did.

  • Please

    Fug Face Maniston, Jake is way better than Ryan Phillipe. And if you can only see Bubble Boy that is your loss and makes you seem a bit immature. And Bubble Boy was actually pretty funny. Anyway, he was amazing in Donnie Darko, Jarhead and Brokeback.

    As Minnesota_dude said, it is harder for even the bigger names to pull in big box office now. Plus, a big thing to remember is that Brad Pitt was in both Seven and Fight Club and they both tanked at the box office. As bad as Zodiac. So, if Brad and Leo, George, can also be considered box office flops for some of their movies.

  • http://secondfiddle [Fug Face Maniston]

    [Please] What makes Jake “way better” than Ryan?
    Do me a Favor, go to Box Office Mojo, look up Zodiac’s numbers.

    You say Brad had Flops, so did Clooney, and Leo. But those names actually mean something. They HOLD WEIGHT. Jake’s name shouldnt even be mentioned in the same sentence as them. He isnt anywhere near their level.

    example: Matthew Mcconaughey, I think he sucks, to me Jake is better, but Matthew is on a different level than Jake, because he has something Jake doesnt… The ‘It Factor’ Lol

    No matter what you say, its not going to change the fake that Jake will always play second fiddle to his sister. [Please] even Tobey Maguire set himself above JG.

    Captain Marvel = Superman-Knock-Off, and JG might not even get that role, just like all the other superhero roles he didn’t get.

  • Please

    Fug, what exactly has Ryan Phillipe done that is better than Jake? Jake has Brokeback (which definitely set himself above a lot of other actors his age), The Good Girl, October Sky and Donnie Darko and other good movies to his name, plus an Oscar nomination. No, he is not Leo or Brad, but my point about them was they have had box office failures in their past. And they started at Jake’s level too. I don’t think Jake plays second fiddle to his sister. As for Matt McBongo, please Jake has talent, Matt can have all the People magazine covers he wants, doesn’t make him a good actor.

    Btw, the Captain Marvel rumors are not true. Just the Daily News making up bullshit.

  • http://secondfiddle [Fug Face Maniston]

    The Good Girl = Trash, not even good enough for Lifetime.

    October Sky = Ok, for TNT @ 3pm on a Sunday.

    Oscar Nom = No chance of winning. Heath Ledger got all the credit for Brokeback.

    Matt McBongo = Sucks, but he’s a bigger celeb than Jake, with more ‘Hollywood Power’

    Maggie Gyllenhaal = Get WAY more credit than Jake does.

    Captain Marvel = Jake hasn’t even been “seriously discussed” for the role. Which is bad, because he has tried out for almost every comic-book based movie, and hasn’t got one yet. If Jake is lucky!! Tobey will not return for spider-man 4, and Jake can replace him, that is Jake’s dream.

    [Please] JG is good, but you speak of him as if he’s Tom Cruise.

  • Please

    Whatever, Fug, guess we will have to agree to disagree. And I am in no way comparing Jake to Tom Cruise. *rolls eyes*

  • girl x

    hes just too fugly to be a big time star!!

  • http://secondfiddle [Fug Face Maniston]

    Agreed [lol]

  • samantha

    Lets get real Jake Gyllenhaal is a HOMOSEXUAL. The tabloids are lame he isn’t dating Reese Witherspoon he’s screwing AUSTIN NICHOLS. GO TO THIS BLOG
    http://WWW.WAITINGFORTOOTHY.BLOGSPOT.COM Jake also is I would say on the SAME level as Ryan Phillippe. At least Ryan has some critical acclaim though with Breach. Zodiac was a BOMB.

  • Anon

    Samantha, you need to get a life. Even if Jake is gay, Ted Casablanca is playing you for a sucker if you believe some of the crap he says.

    Jake has more critical acclaim through his Oscar Nomination than Ryan and got good reviews for Brokeback and Zodiac.

  • Minnesota_dude

    People actually believe that stuff???
    What a load of bul***!
    His *special* fans seem a little nuts to me, and Samantha you really need to calm down. Lol!

  • Halle’s Berry

    Samantha sweetie please take your meds. Linking to a gossip blog to support your “point” is nuts. Also, he ain’t ****ing Nichols, despite the fanfic that junkie and his interns spin and that gossip/blog slash fanfic you post at. BTW, I don’t buy the Witherspoon crap either.

  • gurl

    Fug Face Maniston, i didn’t realize till now that you don’t seem to like Jake at all. I do think Jake is a talented actor and Zodiac wasn’t really a flop. Critics liked it and in a few months it’s going to open in other countries as well. And for the people who say he’s ugly, look at the male star you’re a fan of, i bet Jake is 10 times better.
    As for him being a homosexual. I personally don’t believe it. But as a fan i wouldn’t care. Some people here are so pathetic or just too young and dumb (uneducated).

  • gurl

    Just wanted to add regarding Fug Face Maniston. You write and i’ll paraphrase, … Jake is nice, … BUT he sucks as an actor, even (eww) Ryan Phillippe is better than him, Jake is ugly, Jake is a (eww) homosexual, don’t ever, ever, ever mention Jake in the same sentence as Leo etc. Tell me how old are you? If you don’t like the guy, just ignore the posts about him. I bet Jared posts news about him for his fans, not for people who hate him and spread hate. No matter what you say, Jake’s fans will aways support him. To me he is one of the few more intelligent and natural actors. I also think he’s a talented and good looking guy, otherwise i wouldn’t be a fan.

  • x and y

    minnesota_dude, halle’s berry and gurl – i support your points of view.


  • devilgirl

    “Jake isn’t even on Matt Damon’s level.”

    How much crack do you smoke in a day? Just askin’.

    Um– ever hear of these things called OSCAR NOMINATIONS?
    You might wanna look that up. And the one Matt won was for WRITING.

    Also–Brokeback was the most honored movie in years. Um, the Bournes? Entertaining but….yeah.
    Ilike Matt Damon but honey, don’t embarrass yourself by passing your opinions as fact. It’s sad.

  • devilgirl

    And I agree with ^^^ who said I’d rather see ten Zodiacs (aka, a movie that actually makes you THINK) than one Wild Hogs. Jeezus, talk about lowering yourself to the lowest common denominator.
    I fear the people who actually pay good money to see low-rent crap like that.

    [gurl] Its obvious you cant read, Cause I said I like Jake, I did not say ‘he sucked’ and I didn’t say he was a Homosexual.

    And he is nowhere near Leo’s Celebrity.

    You are obviously a nut case making something out of nothing, I’ve said I liked Jake numerous times, the point was he doesn’t have the ‘it factor’ to put him on a level with Cruise, Clooney, etc ect ect etc etc…. You sound like you’re trying to convince yourself you’re a fan.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Matt’s (97) Good Will Hunting performance was better than anything Jake’s ever done.. Jake didn’t even make a Film in (97)

    What has Jake done in his career that would make anyone think he’s a better actor than Matt, what films has he stared in and carried? This topic is ridiculous [haha] Look at their projects and compare careers

    And Everyone on the Planet knew Jake wasn’t going to win an Oscar. [Heath Ledger] got all the credit from Brokeback!!!! lmao

  • gurl

    Fug face: “..Cause I said I like Jake..”

    Somehow I don’t believe you when you say you like him.

    Fug face: “And he is nowhere near Leo’s Celebrity.”

    Who cares if he is, I don’t. I couldn’t care less for Leo anyway.

    Fug face: “I didn’t say he was a Homosexual.”

    Ok, it wasn’t you that said it.

    Fug face: “You sound like you’re trying to convince yourself you’re a fan.”

    LOL, are you being serious?

  • hello

    Jake is one of the greatest young actors of his generation, what makes him more acttractive is he has both talent and beautiful looks, I must say, when Brad Pitt, Geroge Cloony, or Matt Daman, or whoever are at their middle 20s , no one of them reached the level which Jake is in now, Jake is only 26, but he already has so many good movies, and Donie Darko and BBM are both great classic. Look at some big names who were at their middle 20s, how many of them are as succesefull as Jake”
    He is only 26, he alrady has these classic movies which he is the leading man in it, maybe he is the most succesefull young actor at their middle 20s, some people just can’t face it, he is so succesefull, he has so many good movies, he has a lot of devoted fans, lol, he should really be proud of himself!
    Zodiac is not a failure, some people just has problem with it, it got good reviews surely means something ,they mean the director and actors are great!That’s enough! If you say it proved Jake has no audience draw, go to see Elizabethtown, it has Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst, but it made much worse at box office. And almost everyone believe that OB is more famous than Jake. But that doesn’t help.
    It’s no doubt that Jake will be better and better, imagie when he is over 30, how many good movies or awards he will have, and Rendition sounds really promising.

  • A Non

    Hey Fug Face…if you really want people to take you seriously, I’d drop all the comments about Jake not having the ‘It’ factor to put him on a par with Cruise. LMAO! Did you see what that effing lunatic did to a hundred-million dollar franchise? Hello?? Mission Impossible III, anyone??? If you want to talk about a movie tanking, especially in comparison with what it cost to make, that one takes the cake! And it can ALL be pinned to that nut job.

    You say Jake doesn’t have this mysterious ‘It’ factor that Tom Cruise has?

    I say Amen to that. Instead, Jake’s got incredible talent, charm and charisma. And that beats insanity hands down.

    Jake selects movies that actually require some thought and semblance of brain power to view, understand, and appreciate…perhaps that’s your problem with him? The movies are a little too difficult to understand?

  • cibi

    Fug Face, are you trying to convince Jake’s fans not to be fans? What a waste of time!

    I don’t give a s**t if you like or not Jake Gyllenhaal and you think he has or not the it factor, but: never, EVER AGAIN put his name in the same sentence with Tom Cruise!

    As for Heath Ledger getting all credit for BBM, that is completely made up by you.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Finally Jake gets more than 20 comments…

    Thanks to Fug Face [me]

  • hello

    Jake has a huge devoted fanbase, he has so many great fansites, we just don’t like gossip sites, I rarely went to Justjared or Perezhilton or other gossip fansites, that’s full of disrespection.

  • hello

    People compare Jake with Tom Cruise or George Cloony or whoever now is big name, but the truth is Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, George Cloony can be Jake’s father in age, they are almost twenty years older than Jake, they can be Jake’s father!

  • anon

    Why are we comparing Jake and Ryan? There is no comparison IMO. Jake is a talented actor who is funny, smart and good looking. Ryan can’t act to save his life and is in general a douchebag.

    And Rendition looks great, can’t wait to see it.

  • Beppe

    The entire load of you can argue until you’re blue in the face about “box-office” success. Box office figures measure the $10 spending power of the lowest common denominator – washed out public opinion on a mass scale. Trivializing film in this way only serves to undermine any shred of authority you’re attempting to assert here. If you want to hop into your time machine and go back to 1988 when Tom Cruise was Jake’s age, you might see him tossing around a few bottles of rum on the set of Cocktail – what a quality acting job that was. The mere words “Tom Cruise” send shudders down mine spine and it seems Paramount Pictures felt the same way when they dumped him. Arguing that Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t have star power is the most healthy assertation you can make. He’s a rising talent that doesn’t buy into what misguided misanthropes like you define as “star-power” and he certainly will continue to impress actors, directors, producers, photographers, magazine editors, women and gay men everywhere for many years to come. Sorry all, you’re going to have to face his handsome face for a long, long, long time and when you’re sitting at home on a Sunday afternoon flipping channels, years from now, and the movie network’s poorly censored version of Brokeback Mountain catches your eye…you’ll watch it and like it.
