As the year cracks on, it's time for another poll. You can still vote for Jake Gyllenhaal in the SCREAM awards - and please do keep clicking that link! - and now it's the SFX awards. Follow this link and vote for Duncan Jones and Source Code - and make sure you write down Jake's name as your proposed Sci Fi actor. You know it makes sense.
Talking of polls. Some make sense and some don't. This is possibly the least sense making of any that I've heard. Ever. Jake Gyllenhaal came second in a poll to decide which celebrity should marry Pippa Middleton, aka The Royal Sister. 'Ryan Reynolds topped the
vote for The Royal Sister's Suitor - 22 per cent of readers thought
he would make the perfect boyfriend for the Duchess of Cambridge's
sister Pippa Middleton. Jake Gyllenhaal and Leonardo DiCaprio tied
for second place with 18 per cent.' Extraordinary. Of course, if The Royal Sister herself had been asked for her opinion, obviously Jake would have been top of her list.
Talking of Jake, sightings continue of him in the Big Apple, doing what he does best. Eating out. More alarming are reports that he's doing his lumberjack impression again. You know what that means - lumberjack one day, sasquatch the next. Here's another sighting and another... According to the NY Post, there was also a sighting of 'Jake
Gyllenhaal hanging with female friends Wednesday night at the bar of
Andrew Carmellini’s restaurant, The Dutch, in SoHo.'
While spotting Jake is causing some people to almost faint, it's moving others to words. This wonderful open letter to Jake was written after he was seen and marvelled over at New York's Angelica Kitchen. The food, which contains no animal, dairy or egg products, sounds incredible. Extra points to Jake for going vegan!
I do hope the restaurants of New York have got a lot of food in...
