Lucky Duck or Cover?

First the eagle eyes of OMG tracked this down:

A guy that looked like jake gyllenhaal ate at bluewater today and I came home and jake was on the TV 😍😍😍 - Twitter

Which had Jake spotted in NC the afternoon before his sitdown with Jon on The Daily Show.

Then this picture popped up this morning of Jake getting lunch at the Lucky Duck on Monday

Which prompted OMGers to call foul and speculate that Jake didn't duck but Goosed on Monday (and the weekend) before this week's press started.

But when the Goose flew the coop and landed in Austin and tweeted about it twice

 Excited to watch my bros Maroon 5 rip it tonight in Austin, TX. - AUS10


My bros are shredding!! - AUS10

it looked as obvious as Tommy singing like a bird to Ray about his latest f-up.

But back to Jake's busy day

After charming Jon and getting on the best comebacks on the comic.

Jake said "Good Morning America" and sat down with  Lara Spencer for an interview for Prisoners.

Then it was off to Live with Kelly and Michael

where Jake was asked if he was "In or Out" (Where's Kevin Klein and Tom Selleck ? And what do those producers over at Kelly & Michael know?)

and gave a glimpse what the Hangover might have looked like with a twitpic with Mike Tyson

then Jake was over to Sirius radio to sit down and chat (and run into actress Amber Tamblyn who was Sirius promoting her project too)

And then last night another article in USA Today with Jake and Hugh talking about Prisoners appeared online.  A few things to point out from the article.

1) It was a great picture of Jake

2) Now we know why Jake is looking so thin at the moment

3) Jake's producing another movie

"And Gyllenhaal is on a severely restricted diet as he preps for the crime drama Nightcrawler, which he's also producing —Gyllenhaal is only half-joking when he says he's having raw kale for dinner. "I ate a lemon slice like that because I was so hungry," he recalls, making a sour face. "And I said, 'I love it!'"

And where will Jake be on Thursday?

Well on screen he will be on :

Take No Prisoners Tour

Sept 19 - Jake will be taping the Katie Couric Show with the entire cast of Prisoners at 9:00 am- New York
The show airs 3:00 PM EDT check local listings.

Sept 19 - Inside the Actor's Studio - BRAVO 8:00pm EDT

But off screen?  Well he might have taken wings and flown.

My mother just sat next to jake gyllenhaal on the plane #crazy 

 @cj_rocks_10 right? He was actually sitting in her seat and she asked him to move lol

 @cj_rocks_10 lol maybe a tad! She said he was actually pretty strange..and he has two phones and cracks his knuckles a lot

Whew that's going to be a quick trip to make back by morning.  Red Bull might give most wings, but Jake might get his from the nest.

(and run into actress Amber Riley who was Sirius promoting her project too)

Oh good lord. Tamblyn. It's Amber Tamblyn. Amber Riley is the African American woman on Glee.

prairiegirl said...

That's a very (First!) telling reaction, isn't it?

Management spent nearly 24 hours since that Bluewater tweet trying to paddle back to shore, with most of that time spent trying to use a toothpick in liu of a paddle.

Back to life,,,,back to reality.......

4th quarter, here I come.

I noticed it and changed it before you even posted your comment LOL, but it looks like you are sitting on the edge of your seat to read every word of every post here on OMG.

I wonder why???

destiny said...

Lots of interesting comments on the other thread about that photo of Jake. And now that you've got my wheels spinning, I'm wondering if his face doesn't look a little fuller in that photo? Or it could just be the angle.

I was wondering why he was looking so thin in the new interviews, and wondering if he was sick or just not aging well. I wonder if he's growing his hair longer for that role too, and that's why he's had to resort to slicking it back?

Amber T. looks so different, haven't seen any pictures of her in ages.

destiny said...

I did see that Matt is doing Montgomery Cliff! Sort of afraid to get all excited as it sounds like it's in the early stages of development, and with a first-time director, so I've been wondering if they've even raised the money to do it. He's so perfect for that role.

Wonder why what? Your post appears to have been posted 11.55pm east coast time I presume. My comment was made 1.13 this afternoon my time, 6.13 east coast time. That's hardly me sitting around waiting on this blog's every word.

Special K said...

Actually I fell asleep before I got a chance to post it. So I posted it when I woke which was 6:11 am. It was two whole minutes. And you gave yourself away with the time comment. Why don't you let it go you have been ragging on WFT,since the beginning and moved over to OMG. And yes I know exactly who you are and won't waste my time or the energy to give the recognition by name.

Radar said...

When you see Jake in person you know it is him. There is no question. He does not look like a guy that looks like Jake Gyllenhaal. He is undeniably Jake Gyllenhaal. I'm sure you all have seen him and know what I'm talking about.

He wouldn't fly in at the last minute when headlining The Daily Show. Flights get delayed, flights get canceled.

The only way it would be possible is if he took a private jet and then took helicopter transport into Manhattan but it is still risky.

The bomber jacket is the most suspect thing. It's September, it's been in the 80s in Manhattan.

prairiegirl said...

I don't think everyone would necessarily know him on a dime. I'll say one thing - he's sure been doing an awful lot of flying around this year with no one recognizing him because there have hardly been any airport/plane tweet sightings of him. So somehow this guy is getting around under the radar.

Special K said...

Inside the Actor's Studio was great. It was nice to hear Jake talk about his craft and his roles. He talked about BBM and you could see the genuine sincerity and feelings he has for that film.

Wow! When you see a list like the one above, it's pretty obvious who the closet case is. Over compensation, anyone?

This is how scared OMG has Jake, Austin and WME. Oh, and how big buddy Hugh.

Austin Nichols Dating Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Chloe Bennet

Austin Nichols is off the market! The Ray Donovan star and One Tree Hill alum is dating Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Chloe Bennet, E! News has learned exclusively. The new couple have made no attempt to hide their new romance, as they were seen making out at a bar in Hollywood just a few weeks ago.

Things are going so well that Nichols has already met his 21-year-old girlfriend's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. costars. Actress Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Jemma Simmons on the new ABC series, tweeted a picture from their group outing on Sunday, Sept. 15. "Things that get better with age; cheese, wine and laser tag," Henstridge wrote in the photo caption.

Nichols, 33, was previously in an on-and-off relationship with his One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush from 2006 to 2012. Bennet, meanwhile, briefly dated her Nashville costar Sam Palladio—and he confirmed their breakup at the Runner Runner premiere in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Sept. 18. "I am not dating anyone at the moment. I am single," Palladio told E! News. "Not married and no attachments as of yet!"

E! News reached out for comment.

I got home on the late side and completely forgot about the Actor's Studio.

Make them think I don't love peen said...

I don't find a classically trained actor being turning on by Shakespeare odd at. But, I do find a closeted actor saying Tits and Ass as his biggest turn on pretty darn obvious.

destiny said...

Boy, since when did E! care about Austin such that it would get all excited about this "exclusive".


prairiegirl said...

lol, dammit. I meant 'how about big buddy Hugh'.

LOLLLL!!! I'm not re-doing that comment again.

Look at WME and all of their horses go to work:

Oh yes, I recognize that account. That's a paid robot tweet account. It was used to robot tweet on Jake. Austin's search has lit up with robot tweet after robot tweet.

Put your feet up, folks. Would someone please hand me a program and tell me who this Chloe Bennet is?

prairiegirl said...

I had forgotten it was on, too, Dest. Thank goodness Special said something about it and I was able to recover.

Methodical Muser said...

LOL! That E! Austin article is hilarious. An exclusive about who? A story that takes up an entire computer screen. Oh, and they were seen making out at a bar by some anonymous source. No pics of course.

Looks like Austin must love PDA too. I wonder if they were doing it on the table or actually on the bar itself. Maybe Jake was nearby giving lessons?

Tommy said...

since when did E! care about Austin

since Ray Donovan is a hit

Thanks for confirming Austin is gay said...

Who the hell is Chloe Bennet? She is even less famous than Austin Nichols, if that's even possible. Which means no one cares, yet E! Online runs a huge exclusive. WME is really pulling out all the stops.

Thanks for confirming Austin is gay said...

since Ray Donovan is a hit

Liev Schreiber is the hit, not Austin Nichols. Pairing Nichols with a complete unknown is hardly earth shattering and we haven't seen any articles about Austin Nichols during the summer at all. No this is about the opening day of Prisoners.

Methodical Muser said...

But, I thought Austin was just a D-Lister? Now, all of a sudden someone appears at OMG defending Austin. That's an exclusive in itself. Very telling, indeed.

prairiegirl said...

Oh, and they were seen making out at a bar by some anonymous source. No pics of course.

LOL! Must have been the same 'insider' Lamey used for her ridiculous Enemy rooftop exclusive.

Hey! Wait a cotton pickin' minute.

So Austy has been all over this chick at a bar and in the meantime, behind her back already he's hitting on all his fledgling OTH fans?

Austin, Austin, Austin...tsk, tsk, tsk...what in the heck? That ain't no way to start out this hot romance, buddy. You better come clean with ol' Chlo. She's going to have to share you with all those young gals.

Methodical Muser said...

Austin is such a cradle robber that he finally made it onto Just Jared, Jr. I guess "dating" those 21 year olds has finally paid off!

Chloe Bennet Dating Austin Nichols

Closet case advice said...

Austin did say Jake taught him all about girls! LOL!

Theory said...

This isn't about Ray Donovan. This is about protecting Jake's Oscar campaign and the most momentum Jake has had in the past seven years.

One theory - Jake and Alyssa are done or will be soon. Another -Ted Casablanca is shopping around his manuscript.

He promised a blind item tomorrow too. Would be just like him to do a Toothy update right now. He always strikes Jake at high points, doesn't he?

prairiegirl said...

If anyone gets a chance, check out the "twitpic" posted on the E! Exclusive story.

Check out Austin in the front row and someone convince me that is really his head with his body. I mean, what in the heck?

It's all in the Mile Long Shirt

Methodical Muser said...

If anyone gets a chance, check out the "twitpic" posted on the E! Exclusive story.

Oh my gosh. That is so photoshopped. Talk about shoddy work. Austin's head is literally floating in that pic.

prairiegirl said...

How come you can make out the definite outlines of everyone else's clothes and body parts but on Austin, it's all blurry?

And that is not his arm that is holding up the laser gun. I guess that's supposed to be his arm that disappears into the bottom of the picture.

So whose arm is that which is tucked under his armpit? Where is the body that belongs to that arm?


Was this thing slapped together at the last minute? I would at least like to use that excuse for whoever put that picture together.

Timing is everything said...

Wonder what the story is. Its kinda weird and the big age difference is icky. Though as closeted actors get older their beards always get younger cuz that's where the willingness for career promotion is! Reese was an anomaly, though she had her reese reasons.

Could this be from Austin's camp? I just dont see it. The PR formula is to fauxmance costars from the same show or at the very least the same network for promotion purposes but that doesn't apply here.
I too think this is about Jake. So many here said the bearding with Alyssa would end after the Prisoners premiere and once Jake starts his busy fall schedule. It's about that time.

the real m said...

First off, thanks PG for that postcard. Came today and I really enjoyed your comments - made me laugh but so true.

I thought Jake did well in the Actors Studio, but the way they kept asking his mom questions at first was really weird. And those questions and answers have been asked and answered 100s of times. Very stale. The show was sponsored by Prisoners, which explains why they did Jake at this stage of his career. The comments about Heath were heartfelt and his comments at the very end - about there are perceptions about me but hire me anyway- were very revealing. Perceptions indeed.

the real m said...

Let me get this straight, Austin is so serious about some girl that he has already met her castmates? How ludicrous is that statement. At least he gets a little publicity out of the deal. Maybe even some payback for having to suffer through Jake's charade. The studio is obviously really hoping for Oscar nods for this film. That and Jackmans clout are all behind this straightening effort. The film opens tomorrow and most run out of steam within 3 weeks. I dont think we will see this much effort for Enemy - Jackman is not part of that deal.
