September is coming up fast, and that means the roll up to EoW has begun. 

There's a new trailer out for EoW, with a slightly different feel.

And just a couple of days ago we saw a tweet about seeing Jake and Michael at ComicCon and weren't sure if it was legit or not.

Now Jake has done these before but it never hurts to brush up, now who is doing a Con  before his?  

Well this trip to SD Jake will have to get out of the trailer.

And with EoW co-start Cody Horn in this weekend's opener Magic Mike they are getting in a few questions about Jake and EoW.

Fandango: We heard about a “full circle moment” with you and Jake Gyllenhaal. What was that all about?
It was really a pleasure to work with Jake. We actually went to the same high school. Although, I didn’t cross paths with him, we missed each other by a couple of years, I had heard about him in film study classes through teachers that helped start his career. It was just great to work with him because he was like an entity that I had seen growing up and all of a sudden we’re making a movie together. (source)
 Cody and America play partners, with Cody's character, a former Marine has something to prove, that she didn't get the job, because her dad is the Chief of Police.

Before you sign off on it remember there's more evidence to come....

The Day when it got bigger

Just looking back at Austin in TDAT for this Austin Friday.

It is amazing to think that they wrote additional 50 pages of script and built new sets (JD's apartment) when they decided to expand his Austin's part.

Look how young!

JD working it ....
 but on who?

or Sam????

Think it's going to rain?

Creating a little moment just for them.

 Geez Austin how much do you weigh... I need to up the BowFlex

 You think the wolves heard us talking about them?

Everyone is look at the camera (even the dog!) except Austin and who is he looking at? Jake!

 Now we know where this famous moment happened.  On the set built just for JD.

Fried, Chicken and Cons

It's all in the End (of Watch) that is....

Sometime you have to give a lot for a role but getting tazed?

Co-star Cody Horne tells about getting into their roles for EoW.

“We had gone to this training facility for a tactical challenge and fitness test where you run, grapple, shoot to become a police officer. To pass the test to become a cop, you have to get tased and get pepper sprayed so you know what it feels like."

Her character, a former Marine turned cop whose dad is the head of the police force, is a real badass. So of course Horn raised her hand first for the tasering. “Then Jake had to do it and then we ended up tasing the entire cast."
Her descripton is pretty chilling. "It feels like it's ripping your bones out of your body and simultaneously hammering your bones with a jackhammer. Cops have to tolerate it for five seconds. They did it to everyone else for one second. But they did me for three seconds"  (Hollywood Reporter)

That's one way to fry

And the chicken?  

Looks like the chicken dance will show up in EoW.

Really what is a wedding reception without a little of this?

Now picture Jake  doing it....

That's not the comic part... this is

Is Austin  not the only one going  - just a different date and a  location.

Saw a tweet and makes you go hmmmm.....

What started back then....

Continues today.

Jake might have had a
diva? tough day on set today, there is something special about today.

It was ten years ago that Jake and Austin were at the 2nd anniversary of the Lotus Club in New York. 

Just weeks after meeting Austin is with Jake in New York, not just hanging with friends but also Jake's sister Maggie. It shows that when they fell it was fast & furious and definitely hard.

Those around them must have seen how this was the real deal, it took 7 years for more pictures to come out from that night, and shortly after their evening at Lotus, it was floated about Jake with Natalie, and then of course came Kiki.

For years,  the only picture we had was of Jake and Macaulay with a tiny shoulder that we know now is Austin. 

Then we saw in the background that familiar fellow who has been by Jake's side ever since.

And while some relationships that start out so intense, so fast, burn out quickly, theirs continues to grow all these years.

And for such a Two Wheel Tuesday,  a Two Man Two Wheeler.

TT takes TO

Jake is taking over Toronto.

From the slew of tweets at UTSC where Jake is filming An Enemy to Much Music's obsession of where in the Sprawl... he has getting much love North of the Border.

Jake has been filming at UTSC the past two days with some more filming there this week, which means that everyone on campus will get a chance to tweet they saw Jake.

He is in the teacher mode of his twin set so good by leather and hello rumpled shirt and sports coat.

It looks like is getting a little centered before doing a scene or praying that Much Music would go away.

Speaking of Much Music ... check out their latest edition of Where in the Sprawl

Jake is definitely the catch to catch for these Canadians.

Out Spotlight

Today's Out Spotlight became the first openly gay California legislator in 1994. In 1997, she was the first woman in California to be named Speaker pro Tempore. She was also a member of the nation’s first legislative LGBT Caucus. In 2002, she coauthored a bill that defined marriage as a civil contract between two persons, which passed the state legislature, but was vetoed by the governor.  She is also was a part of one of the iconic shows in the golden age of television.  An actor, activist and academic today's Out Spotlight is Sheila Kuehl.

The daughter of a Catholic airplane construction worker and his Jewish wife, Kuehl grew up in Los Angeles and glided through school. A natural ham, she landed her first paid acting role at age 8 on a radio series. "I learned about professional behavior, showing up on time, knowing your lines, not stepping on someone else's laughs."

As a young actress with the stage name Sheila James, she played Jackie, Stuart Erwin's tomboy daughter, in the television show Trouble With Father, which was later retitled The Stu Erwin Show.  But she is best known for her portrayal of the "irrepressible" Zelda Gilroy in the long-running 1960s TV show The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. The running gag was Zelda's roaring crush on Dobie, and his resistance to her advances. The program spawned two sequels, an unsold television pilot, Whatever Happened to Dobie Gillis? (1978) and TV movie Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis (1988). In these, Dobie had married Zelda and had a son named Georgie, who was like Dobie had been at his age. Kuehl reprised her Zelda role in both updates.

Although her character Zelda was popular enough for CBS to plan a spin-off, the pilot was canceled. A network representative later explained she was “just a little too butch.” During the same time, she was banned from her sorority house when letters from her girlfriend exposed her sexuality.

She co-starred in the short-lived television series Broadside, a female version of the hit show McHale's Navy during the 1964-65 season.  After the show's cancellation,  television roles started to dry up, she transitioned into academia getting a job as a campus adviser to student groups at UCLA and eventually became an associate dean of students.

At age 34,  she was admitted into Harvard Law School, where she excelled being elected class marshal and president of law school student council. In 1978, her final year at the law school, she chaired the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the 1953 graduation of the first group of women to be admitted to Harvard Law School. That same academic year, she became the first woman to win "Best Oralist" in the law school's prestigious Ames Moot Court Competition, judged by a panel including Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Kuehl went into private law practice specializing in civil rights and women’s issues. She advocated for victims of domestic abuse and cofounded the California Women’s Law Center in 1989. She taught law at UCLA, University of Southern California and Loyola University. 

Elected to the California State Assembly in 1994, she become the first openly gay person elected to the California legislature. She was later a founding member of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus. She served as Speaker pro tempore during the 1997–98 legislative session, becoming the first woman in California history to hold the position. After three terms in the Assembly, she was elected to the California State Senate in 2000, beating Assemblyman Wally Knox in the Democratic primary and becoming the first openly gay person elected to the Senate. Re-elected in 2004 with 65.7% of the vote, she has repeatedly been voted the "smartest" member of the California Legislature.

 In 2002, she coauthored a bill that defined marriage as a civil contract between two persons, which passed the state legislature, but was vetoed by the governor.

In 2004, Senator Kuehl authored Senate Bill 1234, an omnibus act intended to protect Californians from hate crimes, which it defined as criminal acts committed in whole or in part because of the victims' actual or perceived disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or association with persons with any of those characteristics. Her bill targeted crimes, not First Amendment-protected speech. It also protected illegal immigrants from deportation due to reporting hate crimes, increased civil protections from discrimination, and provided for law enforcement training concerning crimes against homeless persons and law enforcement response to homelessness. Governor Schwarzenegger signed the bill into law.

In 2006, she sponsored a bill that would prohibit the adoption by any school district in California of any instructional material that discriminates against persons based on their gender or sexual orientation.

Throughout her career as a legislator, Kuehl took a leadership role on health care policy. Her foremost objective was securing passage of legislation to establish a single-payer health care system in California. SB 840 passed both houses of the legislature in 2006, but was vetoed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger; it was reintroduced in 2007 and again passed the state Senate, with a vote pending in the Assembly. SB 840 passed both houses of the California legislature in August 2008 and was, again, vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger.

By the end of her political career in 2008 she had authored over 171 bills that had been signed into law.

Kuehl is the recipient of the John F. Kennedy Profiles In Courage Award (2003); the C50 Award, Celebrating 50 years of Women at the Harvard Law School (2003); the Outstanding Legislator Award from the Southern California Public Health Association (2003); the Victory Fund Leadership Award (2005); the Building a State of Equality Award from Equality California (2006); and the UCLA LGBT Center Distinguished Service Award (2007).

 “The hardest thing I ever did, coming out, turns out to give me a reputation almost instantly for honesty and courage, which any politician would kill for.”

And for the naysayers of twitpics.... here you go.
