Jake Gyllenhaal talks about Moon, a lovestruck Duncan Jones and getting back on the stage

We have a great new interview with Jake Gyllenhaal from New Zealand. with that I mean 'new' in the sense of newly released but judging by Jake's Hairometer, the interview was recorded at the same time as most of the other video chats. But there are a couple of things I particularly like about this one, aside from the initial flirtiness with the 'best dressed' interviewer, and that is Jake's comments about his initial meeting with Duncan Jones about the Source Code script. Apparently, Duncan had just met his girlfriend and he was too in love to want to stop around and chat. It's the way Jake tells it so watch the video.

Jake is also reminded about his time on stage in London for This is Your Youth and he says that he is searching for the right project because on stage is where he feels 'most comfortable'. It's interesting but not surprising to hear Jake describe Duncan's directing technique as theatrical as I think it does show in some of SOurce Code's scenes - the fact that each source code was filmed as one as well as the nature of the sets. This interview also gives Jake another chance to praise Duncan's work on Moon and that of its star, Sam Rockwell.

Tweets can be as illuminating as they can be confusing. Today is a case in point. There have been at least two sightings of Jake today - one at the Sunday Farmers' Market in Hollywood and another in Hawaii. One of the two gains added authenticity because it involves food. Although the second would have the advantage of beach clobber.

And finally...

Completely off topic but I'm off to a special screening of the new Pirates of Caribbean film tomorrow. It's almost a year to the day since the similar Prince of Persia screening I went to. Very exciting! Big thanks to Blogomatic3000 and Disney! This could be quite a week...

Thanks for the interview. I thought it was cute how Jake was flirting with the interviewer.

It's obvious Jake loved his time with Duncan, and I hope they work together again.

I tend to trust the tweet in the Farmer's Market, he was with his mom, and he was also horsing around with Jimmy Kimmel, Which I can so see happening. they are both foodies.

I'd love to hear what you thought of the latest Pirates movie, WDW

Thank you for that interview, Kate. Jake was really charming toward that lady. She was good.
So Duncan relationships was developing during SC making. So he got extra energy.
I liked that Jake wants so much to do some stage piece. I wish him a success in finding the right one.

Good evening everyone! Getting very excited about the Pirates movie tomorrow!

Thanks Sweetpea.

My pleasure, Mermon! It was a good interview and I thought the interviewer (also called Kate!) was very nice. I would love Jake to appear on stage again, although it could do great damage to my finances...

I hope you all had a good weekend :)

I'd love to see Jake on stage if it's in London - that's close enough for me to go and see it.
NYC is a bit on the costly side. But then again, we could call it a field trip and go all together..

Morning everyone!

I would love that too, Mrs JG! Jake is also no doubt inspired by the success of Maggie and Peter on the stage over the last couple of years. Yes, group trip!

Have a good day everyone - very excited about seeing Pirates later!
