School Daze

It's Back to School time in LA this week and Jake's already to go.

Check him out hitting the books.

Is that a Trapper Keeper? And look he's got his lunch money in his pocket.

 Or maybe it's a parent teacher conference. ; )

No, it's actually out with the director of his next movie, Dan Gilroy.  And in his hot hands, the script for Nightcrawler.  And just like school, Jake will have lots of work to take home and lots of notes to take.

But that's not the only thing that happened  to Jake. Nope.  He also got a ticket.  And not for a Go Fish! kind of  thing, but for parking.

 Family Truckster or Mini School Bus?

Do I have something on my windshield?

 That's it right?  Did you see who did it?  Was it a guy name Johnny Law? Did he have a confiscated slightly too short fish with him?

And what would Back to School be without a Pop Quiz?

So why would there be so many pictures of Jake going to the Dr. yesterday (Tues. the 13th) and so few when he went to the Dr. the day before that (Mon. the 12th)?

 And why was Jake a Chatty Cathy on Tues but not during his first Dr's visit this week.  Think some had a case of the Mondays?

Could muted plaid be the new camo for undercover maneuvers?
And why would Jake need to go the Dr's office twice in two days?

Way to Go Darren!!

World Wrestling Entertainment Superstar Darren Young surprised a TMZ cameraman when he came out as gay during an impromptu interview at Los Angeles International Airport.

A videographer stopped Young while he was getting his bags at LAX Wednesday and asked the 33-year-old if he thinks a gay wrestler could be successful within the WWE organization.

"Absolutely," Young said, laughing. "Look at me. I'm a WWE Superstar and, to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now, I'm gay, and I'm happy. Very happy."

The cameraman was stunned and told Young he had no idea, to which the wrestler said he doesn't think his sexuality should matter.

"I guess if you want to call it 'coming out,' I really don't know what to say it is," he said. "I'm just letting you know that I'm happy [with] who I am, I'm comfortable with myself, and I'm happy to be living the dream ... Some people might not like it. Some people will like it. I'm here to please myself. I'm here to be happy ... I'm hoping to make a difference. It's very important to me to make people understand that someone's sexual preference shouldn't really matter. It should be about the person."

Wrestling blogs exploded with news of Young's coming out. He is said to be the first openly gay male wrestler actively participating in the professional sphere.

A representative for the WWE said the wrestling organization is proud of Young for coming out.

"WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar," read a statement sent to The Huffington Post Thursday. "Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation."

Love the honesty and the joyous way in which Darren personally responded to the generic, impromptu question from the videographer. He could have easily answered hypothetically, but his personal enthusiasm and straightforward pride made me smile.

Another step out for a sporting event. I love the low key way he dit it. It sounds unplanned, but he's now out and free. I wonder if TMZ asked him the question because they suspected he was gay.

What an amazing way to come out.

Wow that was awesome.. Wresting is such a macho sport. Not sure that is going to make the WWE very happy but I love it.

Would be a wild idea but maybe Jake never really lived in NYC. I know he was there for the play but maybe that was it. Photo ops and tweeter could create a life that doesn't even exist
