Rings a bell

 Over the years rings have popped up on Jake's fingers. From plain bands to black diamond engagement rings to himself.  And there is always speculation when it began.

It looks like it goes all the way back to the beginning. Check out the glimmer of a ring at the premiere of Jake's first major movie October Sky in Knoxville.

Tucker'd Out

As Gomer would say... Sur-prise!  Sur-prise!

Pictures from the set of Prisoners in Tucker, GA from Tuesday showed up on Patch and there were two pictures of Jake included in the set.

Just a few observations:

That location really doesn't look like Boston at all, it does look like it could stand in for somewhere on the South Shore of Boston, like  Bridgewater or Middleboro but not Boston.

And Jake's got himself one heck of a haircut there. It seems even shorter on the sides that the pictures of him that popped up on twitter the last week or so.

 So which came first, the twitter or the cut?

Feeling Loopy

"Jake Gyllenhaal was here yesterday doing ADR on "An Enemy". Cool guy. I can spell his name correctly now, don't ask me next week." -  Source

Talk about economic filmmaking Denis has Jake working on two films at once, shooting Prisoner and doing post work for "An Enemy".

As we learned in "How to make movies 101" during PoP, ADR is "the process of re-recording the original dialogue after the filming process for the purpose of obtaining a cleaner, more intelligible dialogue track". So pretty much Jake was in the booth saying "but I'm an actor", "Well, I'm a teacher", "hey you look familiar", "This leather chafes"

 Jake will have to jump back in the booth to do the same thing for Prisoners and pretty quick with the film coming out in theaters  7 months.

Amazing to think that Prisoners will take less time it takes to have a baby. Was PoP the equivalent of having an elephant?

Today's Out Spotlight is a British film producer best known for producing The King's Speech (2010), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Picture, and the BAFTA awards for Best Film and Best British Film. Today's Out Spotlight is Iain Canning.

Iain Canning,born July 23, 1979, is the executive-producer of the award-winning films Hunger and Control. Hunger, Steve McQueen's debut feature that recreated the final weeks of Irish Republican Bobby Sands, won the Caméra d'Or at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and the BAFTA Carl Foreman Award. Control, the story of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, also earned a Special Mention Caméra d'Or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and won a BAFTA Carl Foreman Award the same year.

He co-founded See-Saw Films with producing partner Emile Sherman in 2008. Canning from England and Sherman from Australia split their offices between Australia and the UK. Since founding See-Saw, Canning produced Tom Hooper's Academy Award winning The King’s Speech, starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter and Jim Loach's Oranges and Sunshine starring Emily Watson and Hugo Weaving. "The King's Speech" collected four Academy Awards® including Best Picture, and has won awards including the Audience Prize at Toronto Film Festival 2010, the British Independent Film Award for Best British Film and seven BAFTA awards including Best Film and Outstanding British Film.

Canning, and Sherman were listed in the "MediaGuardian 100 2011" and "have joined the industry big league" on the strength of, primarily, the success of The King's Speech.

Upon winning his Academy Award last year Canning publicly thanked his boyfriend, Ben, from the podium.

He said: “To our acting royalty, Colin, Geoffrey, Helena, thank you so much for saying yes. To our amazing best of British crew, so amazing to share the stage with you tonight.

And to my parents, and to my boyfriend Ben, you help me everyday do what I do. Thank you.”
