Jake Gyllenhaal and Rufus Wainwright in Toronto

Jake Gyllenhaal continues to accrue airmiles as he flies between NYC and Toronto where he's filming An Enemy. On 8 June Jake was back in the Big Apple where he was snapped leaving a restaurant...

...but last night (Monday 10 June), Jake was back in Toronto to watch old friend Rufus Wainwright play at the Luminato Festival. Tweets were excited (there were glimpses) and they continued when Jake and K'naan were spotted waiting for a table later at Terroni. There was even a photo. A little bit more info here.

Updated to add that Jake's An Enemy co-stars Sarah Gadon and Melanie Laurent were also at the concert. Thanks to Mermon for the link.

Jake has regularly been spotted at Rufus concerts over the years and it's now almost five years since that most momentous of nights when Jake actually joined Rufus on the NYC stage to do the speaky bit in Between My Legs. Rufus plays Oxford almost every year. This year will be the third time I've seen him play here and every time I can't help but take a look at the wings... Time for a memory lane trip.

Good job to all the Toronto tweeters for being on active Jake Spotting Duty!

Talking of rock and roll, my review of Rock of Ages is now up at MovieBrit!

Thanks for the great update WDW! My schedule has been a bit crazy lately with little time for on line fun so it was nice to come here and catch up on some fun bits! And I always love the Rufus walks down memory lane!

I have to say that K'naan's music is not typically my type of thing but I did get a kick out seeing a good friend of Jake's appear in this video:

It's nice that Jake is still causing a lot of excitement up in Toronto...looking forward to hearing more!

Until next time... :-)

Toronto Tweeters are fantastic. We may feel well informed without bothering Jake too much. Sarah Gadon tweeted as well about going to the concert. So Jake was in good company.
Thank you @BBMISwear for the link to the song. I didn't know K'naan before. Jake educates Thanks to him being spotted with K'naan I listened to his few songs already:)

Hello! Thank you for the great post with some very interesting tweets. I'm surprised at the photo of Jake was waiting for a table at Terroni among the people.
How lucky people of Toronto!

Hi Mermon! Thank you for the tweet of Sarah Gadon. so It seems that one of the blonde women who's seen in the tent with Jake was probably Sarah?

I wish Jake would make another version of the movie "Stanley and Livingstone" with actor Jim Carviezel. Showing the beauties and dangers of Africa of old times in 3D.

Melanie was there too, according to that source:Jake at Rufus concert
Nice that co-stars hang out together. Or at last were at the same event.

Morning everyone! The SUN is out!

Glad you liked the video, Ciara! And welcome :)

Hi BBMISwear :-) It's not my cup of tea either but will take a look at the video. Hope the schedule is fun :)

Thanks Mermon! Good to know other cast members were there too. Reminds me of when Peter was filming Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and they all used to go out en masse.

Morning Mayumintolor!

Hi 13th Sun :)

That's an interesting idea, 18:03!

Thanks for the link, Mermon - I'll add it.
