Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of End of Watch, 19 July (hair is an optional extra in this movie)

New photos have emerged of Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena on the set of End of Watch in LA (taken on 19 July). If one had any last faint hopes that hair might be involved at least a little bit, consider them dashed. Yes, Baldy Jake is back and so is the uniform, complete with a belt that has so many accessories attached to it it's a wonder it doesn't pull the trousers down rather than hold them up. Jake is shown here getting into character by practising his sparring skills and staring at peas.





Many thanks to IHJ for the pics, there are more there.

My review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is now up at MovieBrit.

Helllllo gorgeous! *thud* Any man in a uniform is a great sight, The J in a uniform... what a dream.

But I'm gonna have to correct you a bit, WDW. I guess you meant to write "...it's a shame it doesn't pull the trousers down rather than hold them up." *naughty grin*

I saw pictures of Anna Kendrick on the set of another movie in Atlanta. You know if she is still in End of Watch?

mermon said...

Wow! 35 pictures of Jake in uniform.
KATE! You're absolutely right about the belt:) It's so loaded.
I like those pictures. At last something new. Jake is so funny on some of them. It looks like he has a lot of fun posing. Or maybe it's from a movie set. On some pics it looks like they've have already started.
It seems that, so far, Anna Kendrick makes a different movie - What to expect when you are expecting. So probably she will join EoW later.

Hello Lady Ekster! I'm not so sure about the uniforma but yes, you might be right about the belt :D

I think she is, Monica, she'll probably be joining them later. I doubt her role is as big as Jake's.

Hi Mermon! Lots of pics :) These are from the set so yes they're filming now!

My review of Harry Potter 7.2 is now up at MovieBrit :)

I miss the hair and I'm not necessarily a uniform fan, but he is one hunk of juicy hotness in those photos! I wonder how long they will be involved in filming EOW? And then there's always lots of post-production and other things I know nothing about. I just know I'm already anxious to see the finished product. :)

Thanks, Kate for the article about Ang Lee. I had forgotten he directed so many vastly different movies - like The Hulk. I'm going to revise my "need to rent" list and get several of his on there right away.

I too wish the over accessoried belt would pull the pants down...make my day...please!

I agree there is so much weight to that belt it is amazing they don't come sliding down those gorgeous legs of his.

I think it's a salad he's got in his hand not peas

Those peas will be quaking with fear! It's CHiPS - the Movie !

Morning Susan! I miss the hair too - I'm just not a fan of this look. Jake needs to do a historical romp after this one.... I've not seen the Hulk. But what a range of movies. I adore Sense and Sensibility.

Hi Lilyroses and Sweetpea :)

That's so funny, TD! OMG serious flashbacks...

mermon said...

I like those pictures more and more. I have to admit that Michael looks good too. So serious next to Jake. Jake looks much younger than usually.

Just popping by during vacation to say that part of my vacation has been to enjoy the EoW related pictures that have been surfacing! Although I definitely prefer hair Jake is rockin' this look I think! TD mentioned CHiPS and I laughed out loud at that memory (from many many years ago). She even typed it the right way - ha ha! But ya know what? They are very CHiPS looking!!

Thanks for the article in the other post, WDW - haven't had a chance to read it yet but got a few days left by the lake where more reading (and drinking!) will take place. Cheers!

:-)

Wet Dark and Wild said...

He does, Mermon :)

Hey BBMISwear :-) On your hols! Glad you could pop by. I soooo need a holiday. One of these days... I loved Chips when I was a youngster and I have all kinds of happy memories thinking on that. Still would have liked some hair though... Have some lovely days by the lake xx

mermon said...

Can you explain that CHIPS thing, please.

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi Mermon, CHiPs was a US cop series from twenty years ago or more, about police on motorbikes on the coast. They wear this kind of uniform so it brings back the memories.

An example!

mermon said...

Thank you Kate for explanation. Exactly similar uniforms, just different colour. I bet Jake would like to ride a motorbike in the movie.

Nope, nothings like the CHPS uniform, the sexy boots and helmets are missing.

Jake and Michael are in the standard gear for LAPD and most city police departments. Everything on the belts serve a purpose.

^^^in USA of course. CHPS wore state police uniforms which are normally light colored.

I only know this because of government courses in college, no personal experience (knock wood).

But I wouldn't mind Jake or Michael saying "spread them against the wall". (Also standard police talk in the states).

Morning everyone!

Hi 2:03, 2:06 - I wasn't being entirely serious. We were just saying it reminded us of CHiPs :)

Have a great day everyone - Friday!

I saw Tree of Life last night - oh blimey...
