Two Wild and Crazy Guys

And we're back with pics now. Thanks for your patience.

Looks like Austin will be back to the beach, this time in North Carolina, and back to business in two weeks. The OTH crew starts back to work on July 14th.

The Crazy Tree is back baby, but for how many episodes is the real question.
The big question is not how long they let the crazy go, its how crazy they're going to let it get.


Austin had tweeted back on June 18th, "we don't know how many. Could be 13. Could be 22. Could be 3. They can cancel anytime."

Now if they only have 12 episodes to do it will all wrap up in December, if crazy goes for the full 22, they're there till March. Not a bad schedule and even better they get weekends off. While not exactly 9-5 hours, for show business it's pretty damn close, and perfect for a working daddio. And don't forget a week off from work before Thanksgiving, which is when someone's movie comes out. hmmmm...funny how well it all works

And what about the fella who's going to be busy that week in November? Well, Jake's back to business, gym business, hitting the gym again yesterday.

The whole series

Jake did give a little shout out to Austin (the city, the hubs, both?) with a tip of his cap. (Mellow Johnny's) But it was the wild horsey tee catches the eye. Does it seem like we are seeing the Jake of yore a little more and more?


And a little bit of PoP that popped up after this weekend's boxoffice.

One interesting note is the case of Prince of Persia. While many on the domestic side of things have been calling this film a bomb, it’s been creeping up its game around the world. While it has only pulled in $86.1 million in domestic sales, it has succeeded in pushing itself past the $300-million mark worldwide. With an estimated budget of $200 million, this puts the film in the black and broaches the subject of whether a film warrants a sequel based on worldwide box office. Time will tell if Bruckheimer decides to throw his hat back in the Prince of Persia ring, but it would be an interesting story if he did. - Film School Rejects

You''re comment is ok 1:38 but not the name.

Mellow Johnny's is a bike store owned by Lance Armstrong, he has worn the hat before.

too sweet said...

So really what we have here is a shout out to Lance. Oh how sweet is that! Love it!

Special K said...

Looking over at the Dlisted reminded me that Prince played the BET Awards last night that's probably why he was doing the after hours piano party.

It kind of reminds me of how Austin and Sophia wound up at that after hours performance of Axl Rose during Fashion Week.

more to hmmmm about.

Special K said...

On a completely different note.

Smart marketing to Southern Comfort to get a hold of the one star who's named after competing bourbon and concerned about the Gulf. They can help the Gulf Coast out and have little fun with spreading the news.

L said...

special, you might be the only person of an age that didn't know about Prince and the BET awards last night. You really DON'T do any research do you?

PreciousK said...

"after hours piano party"

LOL that's so precious.

Special K said...

I completely forgot the BET awards were on last night. Hey I own up to it.

gimme me a break said...

Didn't see anybody making the connection of last night to Fashion Week and Axl except Special. You had all day to do that L.

Vanity Fair said...

Boy, really grasping at straws with the complaint that Special forgot about the BET awards.

Looks like Jake was the restaurant Red O on the 25th.

It's a mexican restaurant owned by Rick Bayless, who is appearantly one of the best chefs in that category. It also has a full bar.

Austin only talked about watching the game that day, which was in the morning if I remember correctly, so I wonder if he was there as well.
Mexican food, alcohol and an evening with Jake... somehow I don't think Austin would need much convincing ;)

Looks like Jake was the restaurant Red O on the 25th.

Funny how the girl he's with looks similar to the girl he was "gawking" at during the Lakers game. She looks like a PR person not a date. I got the impression from the Lakers butt pics that Jake thought he saw someone he knew or their sister or doppelganger walk by and he did a double take (the girl was by no means drop dead gorgeous and her butt was no big deal). Either that or it had something to do with the obvious pocket design on her jeans - he's very much into buying organic cotton clothes; maybe he recognized the label. If it is the same girl, which I doubt for numerous reasons lol, good for her.

2 for 1 said...

LOL look at the "twins" in the back looking at Jake and the girl walk by.

Special K said...

It is not whoever it was at the Lakers.

But this is someone Jake knows, either an old friend or possibly one of the ladies who works for him. Because it's not the first time Jake's been out with her. He was at Ammo with her in 2007. And then Joan's on 3rd in 2008.

Rick Bayless won Top Chef Masters last year. He was up against some of the best chefs in the US in head to head competition that benefited charities of the chef's choice. Past Out Spotlight Chef Art Smith competed in the competition as well.

Bayless is probably the best chef for Mexican cuisine in the US.

meow said...

Hey e-ticket, how do you know what athat laker girl looked like, we only saw her ass! Where did you see her face that would think she wasn't drop dead gorgeous?

The girl Ass was flat, but she had a nice shape, from the back. This woma, the PA sorry to say looks a bit dumpy.

Special K said...

Please remember that these specific people you speak about are civilians and just people, not celebrities.

Keep in mind how you would feel if people felt they could comment on how you looked, and if was not complimentary.

I got it: the answer to why actor's management teams want them to remain closeted. It's so PR will have dates to events.

Stanley Cup Pride said...

Awesome

Special K said...

That's great about the Stanley Cup and so touching that Brent Sopel did that to honor the late Brendan Burke and his dad Maple Leafs General Manager Brian Burke.

"When Brendan came out, Brian stood by him, and his whole family stood by him, like every family should. We teach our kids about accepting everybody. Tolerate everybody, to understand where everyone is coming from."

Brent Sopel said...

In a post-parade interview with Outsports, Sopel said: I had a great time, way better than I expected. It was more (fun) than I expected; it was a blast. Everyone was fun, everyone was dancing. But, at the end of the day, I hope it raised some awareness. I wasn’t here to advocate (anything), but if coming here helps break downwalls in the meantime, so be it. I was here for Brendan. I hope he is smiling (from heaven). He was a very unique individual. For him to come out, and then die a few months later...”

Brr..bbbb.. said...

LOL I feel sorry for anyone who had a conversation with those three: Brendon, Brent, and Brian.

Special K said...

We had talked about Brent and Brian here around the time Brent passed away.

destiny said...

I had read about the Stanley Cup going to Gay Pride, it's great to see the footage and to hear that Sopel did it for Brendan and that he had a good time. There certainly weren't any professional athletes at the NYC parade.

m said...

It seems to me that Austin has turned into Julian. His tweets are so different from his prior writing, it does make me think he is doing it for PR purposes only. His heart is not in it. Just like Jake with you know who.

I'd like to see some articles written on why POP did so much better in foreign markets than the US. Curiosity on my part. Disney will have to do some research on that before they decide if there will be a POP2.

wrong again, m said...

Or maybe the 140 character stream of consciousness tweets is who he really is. I highly doubt PR is holding a gun to his head and forcing him to come across as an airhead on his twitter feed.

chessire cat said...

M you will soon run out of your PR theory fits everything rationale soon. It does not fit for every waking thing that Austin or Jake does. These guys are real live humans you know, with real lives, not robots. Otherwise the PR theories you constantly pull from the air would only suffice to fool you. hmmm And, there are much bigger and more important things for each of them to do than to try and fool you.

why would everything J/A do be solely for pr? working out? shopping?

she does not think of them as real human beings but robots who pr push buttons

Otherwise the PR theories you constantly pull from the air would only suffice to fool you. hmmm

you are aware this is a pattern forn you M

And, there are much bigger and more important things for each of them to do than to try and fool you.

i would hope that J/A or Sophia have more important and valuble things in their lives to do than to follow some organized plan to fool a few people who are obsessed with their personal and sex lives.
like make movies since they are movie actors.

You can hope all you want, but you would be incorrect. Jake and Austin are in the closet and since Reeke was put into full throttle in 2007, there has been an unmistakable pattern of selling straight Jake that is sometimes laughable, sometimes incredibly sad. An essential aspect of this campaign has been to surgically remove Austin from Jake's life, except for maybe an annual appearance on the public stage. Now, that Reeke is no more, Austin is stepping up to do his bit, hence his higher visibility in 2010.

The whole twitter thing is there to promote Sophin and try to create some kind of bargain basement "documentation" that they are a couple (we are in a recession after all). You can call this a conscious choice of how these two wish to live their lives, or an organized plan. I prefer to refer to it as a pathetic charade to continue to support the Hollywood culture of homophobia. Maybe if Jake and Austin concentrated on their skills as actors, as opposed to selling a mainstream "normal" image to the public so they can be loved by the largest demographic they wouldn't have to hide behind "beards" on dates to Mexican restaurants or novelistic tweets about "girlfriends" and soap scum in their drains. (Double entendre intended.)

mope said...

^^That was so eloquent

destiny said...

The box office this summer is reflecting the continued breakdown of the star system. People didn't show up for the new Cruise film despite millions of pictures of Tomkat and Suri. There are other examples as well. What people care about is the story and the genre of the film.

Why Sophin is buying into the couple route as the way to success is beyond me.

A little more mystery and ambiguity, and less about dirty drains.

ted said...

Dear Ted:
I admire Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols for their attempts to keep attention on the oil spill in the Gulf. I wonder where other famous Gulf-state celebs are? Your buddies Jensen Ackles (Texas) and his lovely wife Danneel Harris (Louisiana) come to mind...
—Texas Girl

Dear Finger Pointer:
Hey now, don't throw those two under the bus without throwing the, I don't know, hundreds and hundreds of other Hollywood names who hail from the great Southeast but who aren't raising a finger. Regardless, every damn celeb needs to step it up! What good is having 5 million Twitter followers when you don't use it for something worth saying?

and you know this as truthful facts how?? why should i listen to you or take your word on someone you seem to hold comtempt for but don't know personally?

An essential aspect of this campaign has been to surgically remove Austin from Jake's life,

Austin, Jake and Sophia make their own choices even if they do deal with public relations people. The choice of Austin now is, He's with Sophia. A choice has been made that Austin would rather be with her now than with Jake constantly as a bff or hangout buddy with benefits some 5 or 6 years ago, whatever it may have been. The choice has been made! Why do you have problems with it? At least they still are friends. Relationships fall apart all the time, HW stars and regualar people. If you think they were together, what makes you think they couldn't have called it quits on that level? Or maybe you just can't let go the idea that they are madly in love with children. Well that one imo is a stretch and Austin seems to be letting you and those believers know, you have it wrong! Let's use your opening statement here,
You can hope all you Want.

I guess you never thought it may be to let people know that they are together and to let the nay sayers know, whatever your theories are about them Jake, Sophia, himself, you are wrong. This is even if he and Jake did have some type of lovefest going on in the past.

You can call this a conscious choice of how these two wish to live their lives, or an organized plan. I prefer to refer to it as a pathetic charade to continue to support the Hollywood culture of homophobia.

At first reading his twitters where interesting and fun for you, now it is to fool you. Why is this all about you? Organized plan? Yes! To say to you, since it is still all about you, that I am with Sophia now. Deal with it.
That's all it says. Hellen Keller would be able to see this.

Maybe if Jake and Austin concentrated on their skills as actors, as opposed to selling a mainstream "normal" image to the public so they can be loved by the largest demographic they wouldn't have to hide behind "beards" on dates to Mexican restaurants or novelistic tweets about "girlfriends" and soap scum in their drains. (Double entendre intended.)

May be if you stop following these actors daily lives with your expectations maybe you would not be so hurt and disgusted. Ever think of this? You don't have to follow! Who told you you had to? Maybe that could be your message to homophobic HW, why not give it a try.

Wrong, again. I have no emotional investment in any other of these "players." Apparently, however, you do so maybe you should move along before you self combust. I'm enjoying the farce, frankly. They are public figures, projecting a public image. Pure and simple. They both are grown men who know they are on public display and some in their intended audience will love what they are seeing and others will comment on the manipulation and poor production values. Just like with a bad script or a particularly poor performance I have every right to state my assessment of the credibility and value of what is being rolled out.

lurker said...

This is funny. Maybe you should take your own advice. You don't have to follow and post on a blog where you think everything that is said is ridiculous and offensive and ignorant. Ever think of this? Who told you you had to? What's worse - the offensive people here or someone that can't stay away from them?

m said...

During Jake's POP interviews, one thing that caught my attention was his saying he used Bridget Jones Diary as a guide for his accent. There was always dead silence by the interviewer when he mentioned that. Renee Z works for the same management. That's when I was sure Jake did what PR told him to do.

Austin is playing the party line himself now. However if Jake and Austins relationship is secure, it's really no different than any other acting gig.

WDW had excerpts from a Brazilian interview Jake did. Internet translated so a bit unreliable but in it Jake says he likes to surf with friends. Now who else do we know who says he likes to go surfing in the the AM.

Special K said...

Great pick up M about the surfing. And you know an early morning surf is far from cameras, time together with out all the circus that's around them.

Remember Austin talking about "there's something very therapeutic and healing about it". Some would say that about being with that one special person in their life too.

To M&M and Lurker said...

You're joking right?

I'm enjoying the farce, frankly.

I repeat, You're joking right?
Let me try and understand this. You're not here to give some king of gay rights support, or you don't feel like some that J/A have let you don't by not coming out as was foretold by you know who?
You are only here because of amusement or maybe boredum and act as if you are upset and concerned but really could careless about these two in your opinion whatever gay stars? Well I've heard it all. Your rants sound more like a misguided emotionally concerned intellectual when in actuality it's just misguided intellectual trollish behavior that you rail against.

This is funny. Maybe you should take your own advice. You don't have to follow and post on a blog where you think everything that is said is ridiculous and offensive and ignorant. Ever think of this? Who told you you had to?

I like the guys and do stay away. I sometimes speak my mind because I think most of you don't have a clue of what's going on and take to many stabs at them for nothing. If anything, ignorance about life situations of gay, bi people. So I speak.

lurker said...

I like the guys and do stay away.

I was talking about this blog and you know it. As for "staying away" from "the guys" - obviously not, because you're here and you can't stop talking about them. You only bring more attention to "the guys" you like by posting here. Surely you realize that. Your attempts to paint yourself and your motives as lofty and merely an attempt to educate are laughable. If that was really your intention, you would find better use of your time and energy than hanging around a little-known blog that basically gets only a handful of comments per day.
