Matched up

Even in sci-fi ,movie promotion there is no escape.

Musicrooms.net talked to Jake about love and had this what he had to say

"What I believe about love is that, whether it's with your family, whether it's with somebody you fall in love with and have a relationship with, it's all about being seen.

“It's all about someone saying, 'I see you. I see who you are. I love who you are. I appreciate who you are.’

Does anyone else think that how Austin was and still is with Jake? And that was one of the reason Jake fell so hard?

And that everyone has time for love. “I think everybody has time to fall in love when they're doing anything.”



Then Jon Stewart was concern and trying his best last night to play matchmaker, with hilarious results.

But it looks like Jake's bed is full. In in The Belfast Telegraph Jake talked about his special relationship with his fake Jake torso, especially made for Source Code.

"It's now my pillow - I wake up every morning and go 'Aaah, what a wonderful face to wake up to!"

Wonder who else's he's used for a pillow.

He did admit it is odd to see yourself recreated down to the last detail. "It was pretty creepy to behold. They had my eyes moving and my lips, it was quite freaky,"

"The process of doing those things, making the cast and everything, is often even weirder than when you see the result of it because it's so suffocating and strange. But I've never seen something that looked so much like me."

"I even took a picture of it with me with my thumb up and then got really paranoid because I didn't want anyone to steal my phone and find my picture and be like, 'That's the end of the Source Code!' The brilliance of the artistry of how they did it is what blew me away more than anything."



But today it's all work was a full morning with GMA, Regis & Kelly, and talking to Ryan Seacrest and more interviews then tonight it's New Eye's silent auction.

(Time) Travelin' man

Jake got to share a moment at Source Code's LA premiere after party with his dad.

Last night Jake touched down in NYC and it's mom's turn?

Unlike us, Jake doesn't bring the standard carry-on, he brings a bodyguard instead.

Before going forward to tonight on The Daily Show, let's go back in the way back machine.

Jake on his first visit to TDS and sitting on Jon's couch back in 2002.

Fast forward 5 years when Jake went to see Jon twice and brought his ball to throw in.

Tonight? Yes there were will be talk about Source Code, but Jon may surprise him with a curveball and ask,"So Jake... Where's the Afikomen?"

Where is it? I didn't know it was BYOA

Think think, Dagger of time? Source code it to go back?
Or say Frank took it?

Leaps and bounds

While Austin's looping on toaster pastries (toaster pastry taste so good and yummy/toaster pastry get into my tummy/frosting doodle on my strudle/now im gonna eat you up) on the Crazy Tree, and twitter free in Indonesia, (where his sheer size alone makes him a stand out ) it was another full workday for the hubs.

Jake stopped by to sit down with Conan, and what did the two chat about? Well a lot about beards. "It's true bearded people sort of congregate together....they sort of have a relationship".

Jake also called Conan "the Abraham Lincoln of talk show hosts" and warned him "don't go to that show."



Think Jake was talking about much more than facial hair? ; ) Really doubt it was just an attempt to get some of this from Conan. Then again, the power of Coco compels.


A change of location and suit AND shoes, Jake looked hot in a dark blue suit with a grey shirt and tie as charmed everyone on the red carpet at the LA Premiere of Source Code.

This the Jake we love to see.


Giving his best Derek Zoolander Blue Steel.

"Al is that you? It's Sam. What year am I in?"

Tie in to his tall Texan,
never far from his mind (or heart)

Now it's off to NY and from what we know the first stop is The Daily Show.

But don't think NY is the last stop on the Source Code train. A tweet this morning announced that Jake and Duncan will be in Berlin promoting the film April 7th.

Hey Jake try the Currywurst.

Happy Two Wheel Tuesday.

All Grown Up?

UPDATE:

Catch the Source Code Premiere
Live from the Red Carpet
HERE

(thanks M&M)


Sounds like Jake's got a little perspective on turning thirty.

"It's a fascinating thing, I feel there's a great confidence that comes with it, a real security and footing and understanding of myself and how I respond to the world."

Could that mean small steps that could lead to bigger things?

"If there's one thing I've learned from turning 30 it's that I really don't have a choice as to whether I'm going to get older or not. I have no intention of pretending I'm 15 when I'm 40. But, please, be aware there may be some mistakes along the way."

Jake made a interesting observation about the growing up in context to his career.

"As Donnie Darko was a metaphor for childhood into adolescence, I think this [Source Code] is a metaphor for adolescence into adulthood."

Jake might be grown up for the most part (like at tonight premiere) but sitting down with pal Conan for a long overdue chat all bets are off. Jake never made it Conan's Tonight Show Couch, and but being on cable might open new opportunities. Now who's going to break into the giggles first? Conan? Jake?

Maybe a little Wii tennis?
Watch out Jake, Conan beat Serena Williams when he challenged her on his old show.

Then again with Andy singing "I Will Always Love You" softly in the background how could you lose ?

Out Spotlight

Today's Out Spotlight is a journalist and has been an anchor for several national news outlets. Today's Out Spotlight is Thomas Roberts.

Thomas Albert Roberts was born October 5, 1972 and grew up in Towson, Maryland. He graduated from Calvert Hall College High School, a Catholic high school in nearby Baltimore before heading to Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College where graduated in 1994 with a major in communication and a minor in journalism.

Roberts' first job was reporting for a small cable station in Westminster, Maryland then moved on to San Diego, California, where he was a writer and field producer for NBC affiliate KNSD. From there he went on to be a general-assignment reporter with ABC affiliate KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Then Roberts became a nightly news anchor and investigative reporter for Fox affiliate WFTX-TV in Fort Myers, Florida, and later for WAVY-TV, an NBC affiliate in Norfolk/Portsmouth, Virginia. At WAVY-TV, he co-anchored an afternoon newscast and was also the station's investigative and consumer correspondent.

Then he joined CNN, a cable-news channel, in December 2001 and was based in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a weekend overnight anchor on CNN Headline News, and provided Prime NewsBreaks. He co-anchored the channel's coverage of the 2003 Space Shuttle Columbia disaster and the channel's ongoing Iraq War coverage.

Roberts resigned from CNN on May 1, 2007, to settle in the Washington, D.C., area and pursue "new journalistic opportunities".

That opportunity was a co-host and correspondent on the syndicated entertainment programs Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. After co-hosting The Insider, naked pictures of Roberts surfaced that people claimed they've found online at Manhunt.net.

While he was at The Insider, producers would not let him talk about being gay (even though he wanted to) or address the story with the press. Then, that February, Roberts was unexpectedly let go from the program. He went back to traditional news working a correspondent for national CBS News.

He later sat down for an interview with The Advocate about the situation. "I never put inappropriate pictures of myself on a public website. For me it was really hurtful, for [my boyfriend] Patrick and I it was terribly painful, and I'm sure anyone reading this will realize that what happened was something that we needed to deal with on a personal level. And we've dealt with it — we've closed the book on that issue and moved on."

In April 2010, he began as a freelance anchor for MSNBC and was named full-time anchor in December. Roberts primarily anchors daytime coverage but also has substituted as weekend anchor and overnight news update anchor on MSNBC as well as NBC News's Early Today on NBC and First Look on MSNBC.

Roberts has also anchored at the news desk on the weekday and weekend versions of The Today Show for NBC News.

From December 2010 thru February 2011 Roberts anchored the 3 p.m. (Eastern time) hour of MSNBC.

He filled in for Keith Olbermann as the host of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann when Olbermann was suspended from MSNBC for making campaign contributions to candidates in the U.S. 2010 elections.

On February 28, 2011 he began anchoring the 11 a.m. (Eastern time) hour of MSNBC.

“Thomas is a very talented anchor who has impressed all of us over the last year,” said Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC. “With his addition, we’re continuing to build a truly outstanding dayside anchor team.”

Roberts received a 2002 Emmy nomination and a Virginia Associated Press award for his work on the documentary, “Parvo Puppies" and an Edward R. Murrow award in 2001 for a documentary that he produced titled, “When Parents Don’t Pay.”

In 2005, after years of silence, Roberts came forward to testify against Jerome F. Toohey Jr., a former priest who had abused him when he was a student at Calvert Hall College High School. Toohey pled guilty to the sexual-abuse charges and received a five-year jail sentence with all but eighteen months suspended in February 2006. Toohey served only ten months before his sentence was converted in December with the remaining eight months to be served in home detention.

He discussed his abuse in a special segment on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 called "Sins of the Father" which aired March 12, 2007.

Roberts publicly acknowledged that he is gay while speaking at the annual convention of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) in Miami, Florida, in September 2006.

His comments were first made public by journalist Johnny Diaz, a staff reporter on The Boston Globe's living/arts section who attended the conference and wrote about it on his blog, Beantown Cuban. Diaz's report quickly was picked up by major gay media outlets Gay.com and The Advocate online.

Along with Craig Stevens, a co-anchor of Miami's WSVN Channel 7, and other local gay anchors, Roberts was a member of a panel called "Off Camera: The Challenge of LGBT TV Anchors." He told the audience that the conference was the "biggest step" he had taken to really be out in public and that he had slowly been coming out at CNN over the past several years.

Diaz reported that Roberts, who has been a member of the NLGJA since 2005, said he was proud of his partner, and that staying in the closet was a difficult thing for a national news anchor. "When you hold something back, that's all everyone wants to know", Diaz quoted Roberts as saying.

On September 15, 2006, Christie Keith, a reporter with the website AfterElton.com, published an interview with Roberts, who stated that he actually came out to coworkers in 1999, when he was working at WAVY in Virginia. "I was happy, I was in a relationship, and I was very proud. I had the support of family, and of my friends. It was … about not wasting any more time. I'd wasted enough time." He went on to say, "Hopefully, everyone, gay or straight, journalists or doctors or otherwise, can overcome that obstacle, because it stands in the way of you being the best you can be, with your job, with your family, with everything, and not have to be afraid anymore."

Roberts said that he had been approached in 2005 by People magazine to be one of the publication's 50 Sexiest Bachelors, but he declined. "I'm not a bachelor. I thought it would be false advertising... [And] I didn't think it was the right venue to talk about it."

He has been in a relationship with his partner, Patrick D. Abner, since 2000.

Wii Divas Live!

Jake says the only way to be successful at Wii Tennis is by listening to Whitney Houston.
Jake spoke about how he winds down when making movies. "He enjoys playing the sports-based computer on movie sets, and makes the game extra special by singing Whitney Houston tracts while taking part. He finds that satisfies his urge to sing in public, which he is often too nervous to do." Hey maybe that was going on in the trailer. ; )


When has Jake been nervous to sing?

On video doing his best Boss?

On the set of City Slickers belting out the score of South Pacific?

On national TV doing Dreamgirls?

“I don’t really do karaoke that much!" ( and you never did Effie from Dreamgirls before SNL)

But what are his signature song if he does? " What’s that song I Just Wanna Dance With Somebody? I always want to do The Bodyguard soundtrack I Will Always Love You. I like that,”

But instead of karaoke?

“No, maybe just a bit of Wii tennis [on set], while I’m singing Whitney’s I Will Always Love You. That’s the only way to do it really. You can’t play Wii tennis when you’re not listening to Whitney Houston.”

Do you think he yells .."BOBBBY" on his returns?



Two songs does not make a set tennis or otherwise. So to help out round his list of go to hits it's a Top Ten List just for him.


Top Ten of more Whitney Houston songs for the Jakey G Wii Tennis/VH1 Divas Live sing-a-long.

10. So Emotional

9. Saving All My Love For You

8. All the Man I Need

7. Run to You

6. I'm Your Baby Tonight

5. You Give Good Love

4. I Have Nothing

3. Greatest Love Of All

2. I'm Every Woman

and the number one extra Whitney Houston song for the Jakey G Wii Tennis/VH1 Divas Live sing-a-long.
How Do I Know (If He Really Loves Me)


I could open with Saving All My Love for You, then One Moment in Time,
if it goes to 5 do Greatest Love of All for the third set,
so I can save I Will Always Love You for the final.


Now Austin? Celine? Christina? Shania? Who's the Boss Diana Ross? The Queen Aretha?
