All is quiet on the Jake front. Last seen eating out in NYC, the Jake Gyllenhaal trail has now cooled and a reward has been offered for any verified sightings of the actor. This may not actually be true. However, a bit part of me hopes that this absence has a lot to do with Jake dotting 'i's and crossing 't's on his contract for An Enemy. Director Denis Villeneuve's next project, Prisoners, is due to being production in early 2013 and so if he wants to have An Enemy finished and dusted by then, presumably work will begin soon. Maybe Jake's getting measured for his double suits as we speak.
The next sighting that is certain is Jake's appearance at the Celebration of Paul Newman's Dream in NYC on 2 April. Advocate magazine celebrates its 45th birthday next week in Beverly Hills but, despite a little confusion in some of the announcements with the inclusion of Jake's name, it doesn't look as if he's to attend. Which is a shame. Advocate gave Jake and Heath one of their most memorable covers.
Earlier this month, the SXSW Film Festival featured the premiere of the documentary Big Easy Express, which follows Mumford and Sons along their Railroad Revival Tour last March. What memorable days those were, not least because among the crew and band was none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. Without having intended to accompany the tour, Jake became their most famous stowaway. We must wait and see to learn if Jake is featured in this musical documentary, but, in the meantime, here's the trailer to bring back some memories.
