Jake Gyllenhaal Can't Find a Cab, Sprints Across Town Instead!

Jake Gyllenhaal Can't Find a Cab, Sprints Across Town Instead!

Jake Gyllenhaal sports a full beard and bundles up in a warm coat while heading out and about on Wednesday afternoon (January 15) in New York City.

The 33-year-old actor was seen trying to find a cab, but had no luck and decided instead to sprint across six long city blocks to head to the west side of town.

It was reported that same day that Jake‘s new film Everest has just begun production in Italy so he is sure to head across the pond pretty soon. The movie also stars Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, and John Hawkes in a story that follows “climbers who attempted the disastrous 1996 ascent of Mount Everest in the Himalayas, only to be thwarted with terrible conditions that led to the loss of many lives,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

Everest began production in Nepal, not Italy. They have a 2 weeks filming permission.
Currently they’re shooting scenes (involving Brolin) for Rob Hall’s expedition. Next week they’ll shoot scenes for Scott Fisher’s (Jake’s character) expedition. Then they’ll go to Northern Italy and UK.

# 8

# 9

@jd: Sure he is, Jake as well.

Yes, when Scott’s body was found his family decided to leave it there. his spirit must be there also. Gonna be a hell of a movie and performance!

@Fischer: Thanks for your kind reply, can’t wait for this movie!

I remember watching Josh’s dad James on Marcus Welby MD. I had such a crush on him. Nice to see he has such a talented son. I hope Josh wins an Oscar some day.

I had thought Jake was in Nepal. Apparently not yet.

Thanks for letting us know the shooting schedule. Lynn

I need to go to NY and become a taxi driver. Of course, I would be fired kicking people out just to pick up Jake Gyllenhaal!! Do they even have women drivers?

He looks like some homeless guy. No wonder he couldn’t get a cab.

I hope he is looking gross for his movie and it is just temporary.

Sorry you didn’t get nominated Jake. You were really good in Prisoners.

That beard is gross, I hate it!!!! I wish he would shave. Why this hobo look? He can look so much better without this out of control beard. Looking forward to Everest. He needs a new woman in his life who keeps him groomed.


Though i am really excited about Jake coming to Nepal this week, the weather is scaring me to death. It’s started getting really misty from yesterday and Jake flying to one of the most unsafe air-strips in the word, Luka, at this time sounds like a really bad idea. This is one of the worst time to go to Everest, i am wondering why they planned on shooting now. I hope they postpone it or something… am really worried

@sara: Brolin is playing Rob Hall
