Two Servings of Jake

Grub Street San Francisco had a piece about the Le Grand Fooding NYC, as there is a little bit a competition between the east and wet coast culinary hubs. Grub Street put up a new pic of Jake at the event

and linked a video that was shot with not one but two glimpses of Jake in full fur.

Look quick at :43 and at 1:00 marks.



Missed him, well here's a few screen caps to make it easier.

This is a little closer than the picture Grub Street put up.


And hey who is the best person to hang with at a food event than your best bud who's a chef. (You get you own Top Chef judge experience right there with you)

Everyone seems to have a comment on Jake's look, but if you look around the event, it might be he's just trying to blend into the environment called hipster Brooklyn.
And speaking of food:

For those who remember last summer there was announcement that Jake was going to be on Shalom Sesame. And this past week Shalom Sesame's two newest volumes came out on DVD.

Jake joined others in introducing kids to Hebrew letters and words and Jewish values, mitzvot (good deeds), and holidays.

And looks like Jake is all about the matzo. Check it out:

It's not Le Grand Fooding, but an Everything Matzo with a little butter isn't too bad.

If you want to see a sneak peak of Shalom Sesame check out the trailer here on their website.

Except the event wasn't in "hipster Brooklyn".

Special K said...

He's staying in hipster Brookyln, and yes the new hip place is Astoria in Queens. Let the great hipster migration begin.

Since when? I've lived and worked in Astoria for years. Still don't see the great hipster influx you speak of.

Oh and technically speaking, Le Grand Fooding was in Long Island City. But those that don't know any better call it "Astoria".

prairiegirl said...

Wow, is that a real beard on that guy with the red plaid shirt? And speaking of real or not...


Halt!!! in the name of Kodak.

That is not Jake waving the cracker around. No, really, Special, who is that?

Special K said...

There are filmmakers and artists that are starting to move into Astoria because they are being priced out of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens and Park Slope.

But why the discussion of the neighborhoods, thought Jake the Matzo Man would spark more conversation.

LaOD poster said...

Look closely at the poster for the Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway Viagra-and-Parkinson's comedy Love and Other Drugs. Apparently, director Edward Zwick was actually naked and in the shot with his stars, but got Photoshopped out. At least that's what we heard at Zwick and Gyllenhaal’s recent New Yorker Festival Q&A with Anthony Lane. According to Zwick, Gyllenhaal and Hathaway had been complaining about how often he'd forced them to do nude scenes. "I said, 'What do you want me to do?'" said Zwick. "And they said, 'You take your clothes off.' And I said, 'Fine!'" Said Gyllenhaal: “It’s weird how eager you were, too. He was like, ‘That’s it? No problem!’ And then it was off. It terrified me! Like, all of a sudden, this really intimate relationship became way, way weird.” Then, says Zwick, all three of them snapped a naked photo together. "The art director looked at it and said, 'Get rid of the director,' and he stripped me out and put Annie’s head on Jake’s shoulder, and that’s the movie poster."

Also, we learned a few other fun facts about Gyllenhaal: (1/2)

• He’s masturbated “four or five times in four or five different movies.” In The Good Girl, he said, "I decided my character was going to masturbate with his left hand. That was my character choice."

• His early acting career mostly consisted of sitting in the background while his older sister Maggie sang and danced for dinner guests. “I did everything wrong, according to her. So I was always banished to the corner,” he said. “Les Mis, when she put that on, I was just a poor person sitting in the corner, begging for money, and she sang and danced all the songs. It’s never changed. It’s still like that to this day."

• He filmed Donnie Darko when he was having a hard time in college and didn’t know where he was going in life. (He dropped out.) After it screened at Sundance, he said, “My mother and father and sister came up to me afterwards, crying, sort of realizing that I had been trying to say something to them about how lost I was. Something about talking to that rabbit at the time comforted me.”

Other fun facts about Gyllenhaal (2/2):

• He accidentally offended the entire crew of Brokeback Mountain when he showed off his first “bad acting” attempt to play Jack Twist at age 40. “We did the first take and I was doing all this bad acting, like, limping around and my back was achy and I picked up this saddle and I grunted, and half of the crew was 40. They were like, ‘We’re 40. We’re not 80! We do more work than you do, you wimp actor.” Also, looking back on his performance, he really regrets the mustache, though he thinks it helped his acting. “It was hard to eat with that mustache,” he said. “Ultimately, it’s the pain that brings great performances.”

• His dream list of collaborators: Paul Thomas Anderson, Ryan Gosling, and Michelle Williams, again.

• He said this about Love's love scenes: “There’s this weird sense of being watched. If you’ve ever made out with anybody and you know you’re being watched, you can’t help but watch yourself, and that just takes the sexiness out of the whole thing. But we’re performers, so you can make it work. Occasionally I’ve been into it. I won’t talk about with whom." And then he laughed a lot. But seriously, we need names.

I know he said Les Mis, but why do I picture Jake as little poor orphan boy, sing "Where is Love" from Oliver as he pretends to scrub the floor in the corner.

LOL so all filmmakers and artists are hipsters now? Someone should really buy you a clue.

hollywoodlife said...

Dear Lucas, I’m just going to nitpick this week — aside from Brooke’s business drama, the Oct. 12 episode was a depressing snooze fest.

I think we can all agree that NO ONE outside of the people on this show would ever watch Julian’s (Austin Nichols) documentary about the Tree Hill gang’s daily lives. Why would people willingly subject themselves to an hour of depressing southerners talk about giving up their dreams and being unhappy? Oh, wait… I do that every single week now. ...

Is it just me, or are the girls always right on this show, and the guys always absurdly understanding? Between Nathan (James Lafferty) crying on the season premiere, and now Julian practically living merely to boost Brooke’s ego… these guys had better be getting some.

Isn't this now the most depressing show on TV?

Stubborn TB said...

Getting personal over what makes a hipster and what neighborhoods are hip?
Especially when that point is really not that important to the actual post?

You really are hunting for things to pick at at this point.
Maybe you should consider joining a debate club... Oh wait, they don't condone being an ass.

the real m said...

Troll does not even understand what the word credible means. Argues just for the sake of arguing.

Someone is a bit late re the New Yorker stuff. Most of that was discussed after the event, which many of us heard live. Not that I mind seeing it rehashed. It jogs memories.

Somebody just told me I look like Michael Buble. I don't know what to say/do...

From what I can tell, my @TwitChange auction winner, @PharmDTX is a big fanboy. The force is strong in him.

Obama just signed a new law. Anyone who posts ugly remarks on the internet will be immediately electrocuted thru their keyboard.

Second night in the tent kiss with Heath. No way in the world Jake was not into that kiss. It is one of the most beautiful romantic kisses I have ever seen on screen.

LOLL! I didn't even watch it last night. After special said that Austin wasn't even in the episode, why waste my time.

I think so too. Didn't I read somewhere where Ang gave Heath and Jake privacy during their love scenes? :)

It looked as if no one in the world was around. Just those two. If there were people around neither Jake or Heath felt their presence. That kiss was certianly not something they didn't enjoy. By the look on Jake's face he was in heaven.

m, what is this Proposition 23 in California about? I don't get it.

What does slacking on energy conservation have to do with the jobless rate? Why would slacking on energy conservation ever be a good thing? But I can't get past all of the political mumbo jumbo to understand it. As usual, politics and myself just don't get along.

Let me redo my comment from 21:58.

I myself cannot tell what Heath is feeling in that scene - because his eyes are closed and he's on the receiving end.

That was a great scene from a 2005 movie. I'll always remember it.

What I'm excited about is the present. And seeing Austin at Jake's side at Leadville is what is awesome to me. Seeing that these 2 guys are still with each other since meeting on the set of TDAT despite all the people they have met along the way, is something I think is incredible.

And I'm still on a high from that picture. I just saw it again when I searched for ol' Jingles' picture. There it was and without a question, I know who that is.

prairiegirl said...

let's see now, how many times can I re-do that comment?

lol

what is this Proposition 23 in California about? I don't get it.

Prop 23 is an attempt to prevent AB 32, The Air Pollution Control Act (aka California’s 2006 Global Warming Solutions Act), from going into effect. Essentially, AB 32 would slash the State's emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to 1990 levels by 2020. The Act also would encourage the use of solar, wind and other fossil fuel substitutes. Since California past AB32, the State has attracted $9 billion in green tech investment, far more than any other state. In fact, seven of the country's 10 largest clean-energy technology companies are California-based. Knowing that Californian’s tend to be progressive when it comes to the pursuit of clean energy and climate change issues in general, supporters of Proposition 23, who are mainly big businesses and oil companies, cleverly designed a proposition that has the veil of reasonableness (exploiting people’s fear that AB 32 will lead to more unemployment). Essentially, the Prop 23 measure reads that it will "keep AB 32 on the books but would simply “adjust it’s timetable until California’s dismal unemployment situation improves." Of course, during the first half of 2010, the unemployment rate has been above 12 percent and economic forecasts for the next five years have estimated that the state’s jobless rate will remain above 8 percent to, at least, 2015. Since Prop 23 indicates that the unemployment rate must drop to 5.5 percent for four consecutive quarters the backers of this proposition are essentially trying to upend AB 32 from going into effect, if not permanently, then perhaps for decades.

The thought of an enduring love story that somehow survives the odds and all the rampant temptations inherent in a "Hollywood" lifestyle is definitely remarkable. Of course, I have to agree with Tom too that the Second Night in the Tent kiss was over the top romantic and breathtakingly intimate in a way that is rarely captured on film. As Jake likes to say, he was most certainly "in the moment."

I think you may be exaggerating that quote a bit said...

Jake likes to say that? Huh. And here I thought I'd read all his quotes about BBM.

Methodical Muser said...

Jake, repeatedly, says he likes to be in the moment, whether he's acting or living his life. Jake doesn't have to say a word when I experience this pivotal scene in BbM. His actions are remarkably clear.

Jersey Tom said...

Problem is PG. We have never got to see Jake and Austin kiss and until we do the second kiss scene will always be my fav Jake kiss. How awesome would it be to see Jake and Austin do another movie. Heck with Ryan Gosling. After seeing them in Colorado they may be working together in one capacity or another again soon.

Jersey Tom said...

PG the reason I was talking about the tent kiss was because I am still intriged about what Jake said at the interview about really getting into one kiss in his career. I would rather it be one with Heath than any other.

I second that emotion re the 2nd night in the tent kiss. I've said before I don't understand why it did not get as much attention as the reunion kiss. And it sure looked like a real kiss to me.

reading comprehension said...

about really getting into one kiss in his career.

He never said "one kiss," he said "occasionally." Some of you guys have a remarkable knack for rewriting words to fit your fantasies.

We have never got to see Jake and Austin kiss and until we do the second kiss scene will always be my fav Jake kiss.

But you were not watching a "Jake" kiss - you were watching a "Jack" kiss. Why are you comparing characters in a movie to real life people? Do you understand the concept of "acting"?

Special K said...

I think to capture the moment like the kiss in the Second Night in the Tent, there had to be such trust. Trust with Heath, trust in Ang, a trust to let go and be in the moment. Like everything dissolved around them and it was just the two of them transported in the story. And it was that trust to go there without any fear that allowed them to capture something that resonates with honesty and tenderness.

Some of you sound like you've never witnessed a passionate love scene on film. Het OR homo. Honestly, try expanding your cinematic horizons sometime.

Why do you say stupid things. We are talking about how very sweet one gentle kiss was. We are not saying there are not many others.

Besame Mucho said...

^^Don't kid yourself. Some of us have, probably more than your defensive self has.

Besame Mucho said...

That was for the presumptuous comment at 7:34, Sorry. :) Is it Jack again?

7:34, not only have we seen them in movies, we've experienced them firsthand ourselves. So a lot of us know it when we see it, and SNIT is an amazing kiss by any standard. I thought of Jake's remark too, about sometimes being into a movie kiss, and I thought of it. ;)

Two different kind of kisses m. The reunion kiss was one of those I miss you so much I want to devour you kind of kisses. The SNIT kiss was pure romance.

I think J and A have also shared both type of kisses . Sounds like sensitive julian is missing someone very much.
