Time to play catch up - yesterday we heard rumours about Jake Gyllenhaal hosting SNL (still unsubstantiated but we can hope) but today we have confirmation that Jake will be on the Talk Show Circuit for Brothers - appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show on 3 December. And where there is one more will follow. Before that, Jake, along with Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman, will be seen asking each other fans' questions at Moviefone. You have another day or two to submit your questions before all is revealed on 30 November. And let's not forget Sesame Street of course...
Brothers - which is now, for the first time, higher up the ProIMDb scale than Prince of Persia - has the full power of a stunning website behind it. This site has evolved through the weeks and days until now. The transition video clips now include some significant Jake and Natalie smooching and Lionsgate is to be commended and encouraged. Brothers is also heading for the sixth Dubai International Film Festival in December, although there is no suggestion that a gala will take place.
Hank Azaria may now have finished his part in Love and Other Drugs but filming continues to cause mayhem and fascination in the streets of Pittsburgh - not to mention the city's Whole Foods store. Over the last day or two, filming has been causing some delays 'on the Mon/Fayette Expressway'. The basecamp for filming is the local Ringgold High School and the actors have been hanging out in tents around the school's football field, creating quite a stir among local tweeters. On Thursday, filming will move to (and close) the Gypsy Cafe.
Tomorrow, People announces the winners of their 2009 Sexiest Man Alive Poll and 'doe-eyed' Jake Gyllenhaal is among those up for consideration with, rather unusually for polls, a gorgeous picture from this year, rather than an overused photo from another time in Jake's career. Obviously, unless the world ends today as foreseen by Mayans, Robert Pattinson will win but, if we're talking sexy, take note Twilightians...
This reminds me that LoveFilm has a poll of its own underway and the votes number in the tens of thousands. Its goal is to identify the defining films of the decade - Brokeback Mountain, Zodiac and Donnie Darko are amongst the choices. Make sure to vote because, although I liked it, why Moulin Rouge is winning I cannot fathom.
And another intriguing Tweet from NYC to close with: 'covering the red carpet for the Natalie Portman/Tobey Maguire/Jake Gyllenhall movie 'Brothers' on Sunday night..'
