Knockout Punch

The Weinstein Group is adding more punch to Southpaw this time signing on former boxing champion turned actor Victor Ortiz to the cast according to Deadline.com

"Ortiz signed on to portray Ramone, a flyweight kid from the streets with real sparring potential. The character parallels Ortiz’s own rags-to-riches story of rising from childhood as a foster kid, to brawling his way to the championship belt in 2011. It’s the second significant role for Ortiz, who makes his feature film debut later this summer as one of the Young Expendables in Expendables 3"

It looks like Jake got his onscreen training day look with a very close cut. He has been seen around Pittsburgh driving, going to Whole Foods, and out to eat with castmates including his newest Ortiz.

And the mention on Datalounge about Jake and Austin with a baby in their backyard.

I remember that DL comment too. I believe that was the post where it was mentioned that Jake had a place in Malibu.

Wow, really interesting about the Father's Day tweets and the fact the one got pulled.

Also the bit from DL, missed seeing that.
