End of Watch, a big home movie? Get the look and have you voted for Jake Gyllenhaal yet?

Anna Kendrick has been speaking to PoPSugar about the delights of working with Jake Gyllenhaal on End of Watch. Regrettably, she didn't tell them how tall Jake is. Nevertheless, it's all good:
"[It's been] great! He is one of the most open actors I've ever worked with. The whole set was crazy, since we were basically shooting it as though it was home movies. We didn't stop shooting it; there was hardly a second between takes where somebody didn't pick up one of the hand-held cameras. We just start shooting each other, which was a completely new experience for me but really exciting."
I have an image in my head of a line of cameramen sitting to one side, having a snooze with their feet up.

Get the look

Over the last few days, Jake has been getting some/even more attention for his look. As is the way with trendsetters, Jake's hair may be growing again but, according to Esquire, his buzzcut is The Look (but only if you have a nice looking head). Apparently, you should ask for 'Number One on the sides, Number Two up top'. Doesn't that make it a Number Three?

Meanwhile, SFGate has been handing out its 8 Get Sexy Styling Tips for Guys and there at Number 1 is Jake Gyllenhaal with his dark jeans.

Have you voted yet?

A friendly reminder that if you haven't voted for Jake yet as best scifi actor in the SCREAM awards, please get to it. And if you have, why not do it again...? Here is the link.

Includes pictures from IHJ.

Hi! I voted so many times, that if Jake will win, I will have a part in it. :)

Anna said nice words about Jake. And she gave us more informations about EoW making. It surely was fun with so many hand cameras. David Ayer will have a lot of work with montage. :)I wonder what will come out from all of that. Seems interesting. I'm already curious to see some extras from all those different angles.

That Anna Kendrick is a lucky, lucky, woman, isn't she?

With all the great fashion tips Jake inspires, it's a wonder that we don't see look-alikes around every corner.

Thanks for the reminder to vote again, Kate. I've been negligent in that regard lately... shame on me! ;)

That's so good, Mermon! Keep going! Ut sounds like they'll be a huge amount of extra footage for End of Watch. It'll be interesting to see what they do with it.

She most certainly is, Susan :) Glad I reminded you! I've voteed a couple more times today too...

Just the way I like him - business up top and party below the belt. ;}

Thanks for all those links, Kate.

Although I have to say that would like a word or two with that Esquire writer.
If you skip to the picture before the buzz cut, this is what they have to say about Jake:

You have: A boyish nest of just-woke-up bedhead.

The example: Gyllenhaal, we are pretty sure, has had that same mop of tussled hair since Donnie Darko.

What went (sorta) wrong: A long wait between haircuts. "The sides are too poofy for the short length of the top," says Maniace. "It makes his head look round. Maybe he's trying to hide his ears?"

For one - NO, Jake has not had the same hair since Donnie Darko. DASTAN, anyone?

Secondly - the picture they have with it is from the SC promotion in Europe, aka "my" Jake. And as such he's perfect!

The one thing I completly agree with though is trim your beard so it's shorter than your hair.

Jake, listen to those guys, they know a thing or two about looking good. At least most of the time.

Morning Mrs JG! OMG that is such nonsense! Nobody's hair changes quite like Jake's, to the extent that now and again he has none of it. And there's nothing up with Jake's ears... I agree about the beard length though, definitely!

Have a good day everyone! I do believe the sun's out - rare occurrence.

Hello! Hope you all had a good day :)

FYI WDW I heard the face pet is back. (do you still have your shaver and shaving cream for Jake?)


Wet Dark and Wild said...

Morning everyone! Friday :)

I'm not at all surprised, Sweetpea :D

Have a good day, everyone!
