Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway get sporty - and Enter the Source Code

Updated to add that you can follow Duncan's Source Code publicity tour through Rodene's travelogueblog (is that a word?). I've added a link on the top right of the front page here.

While Jake Gyllenhaal and Duncan Jones pack their bags and head off to Austin for the Source Code packed weekend (26 degrees centigrade forecast there for tomorrow so some suntan lotion and a big floppy hat might be in order), here is a brief interlude. It comes in the shape of a new Love and Other Drugs interview with Jake and Anne Hathaway and within it you will find some curious sporting metaphors. Jake also compares working with Annie to log rolling. Clearly logs are a lot more attractive in Hollywood than round these parts...

When Prince of Persia came out you may recall that Disney set up a smartphone PoP game that would be triggered if you walked past certain posters. Source Code also has a game - Enter the Source Code - and you can now play that using Facebook and on your phone. As is the way with these things, I believe the prizes are restricted to inhabitants of the US. There are more details about the development of the 20-minute game here.

Thanks to BBMISwear for the heads up on the great video!

Good morning, WDW! What a gem of an interview in that clip! Jake and Anne really need to make at least one movie together every 18 months or so, and many of them should be comedies. I'm still giggling just thinking about all the sports metaphors.

Oh, how I wish I could be in Austin this weekend! I'm counting on you to keep us informed with up-to-the-minute news and lots of clips - it's the next best thing to being there. Thanks so much, WDW.

Hi there Susan! Such a funny video - I was watching it in the office trying hard not to laugh too loudly :D Me too - and it makes me feel sad to think there'll be nothing in the UK at all - but I will do my best to do good coverage for SXSW and for the opening!

I LOVE the chemistry between them! They crack me up! Couldn't stop laughing when Jake started with "I've really been waiting to get naked with Anne on screen...He asked for honesty!" hahahaha! And then the way he imitates her saying "He returned every serve" with that "snobbish" face! I had to watch it several times because my own laugh didn't let me hearing the interview!

Thanks so much WDW, as Susan said it is a gem indeed!

Oh and almost forget it! Special mention to Jake saying "Ay Ay Ay!" (min.2:27) :D So cute!

Hi Carlota! Jake really cracked me up - and I loved it when Anne mentioned their chemistry.

My pleasure Christina! We'll just have to be in Austin in spirit... I hope you have a lovely evening too!
