If it was Heath I'd feel exactly the same.  ;)

I know. I see it exactly like you.

It might be nice though after everything he's put us through lately.  ;D

Wouldn't it just?  ;)

Did some astrologer or psychic recently tell Jake to do only movies with one
word in the title?  Nightcrawler. Prisoners. Enemy.

Of course, several years ago he did Brothers. Zodiac. Proof. Jarhead. Rendition.

Nailed.

and then there are the two word movies: Brokeback Mountain. Moonlight Mile. Source Code.

Don't know quite where to post this. Here? In the Serious thread? Here, then.

"In "Nightcrawler," Jake Gyllenhaal plays a man whose drive for success leads him to do despicable things."

"There is still a Lou in me," the actor notes. "He's exploring how far you'll really go for success. There's an entire generation that's been fed the idea of success at any cost, and many of us are functioning in a way where morals and ethics become very hazy."

... and there's more on Jake's career so far.

... after everything he's put us through lately.  ;D

"He pulls out his iPhone and shows off a few shirtless pictures of himself in a boxing ring. They're from the set of "Southpaw," an Antoine Fuqua-directed boxing drama he has just wrapped. He looks fit but mean in the photos, transforming himself nearly past recognition yet again.

"I spent six months training for this," he says, beaming. "Now I'm looking up boxing all the time. It will be a part of my life forever."



Uh-oh  :-\  Should we be worried we'll never see carefree film Jake ever again?

Not unheard of...that's why Madonna's song titles are no more than three words.

:D :D :D :D

Now that would be something.   And yes, the majority of Madonna's song titles are 3 words or under, but there are those that break the rule.

"This Used to Be My Playground" - #1 in 1992
"You Must Love Me" - #11 in 1996
"Don't Cry for Me Argentina" - #8 in 1996
"The Power of Good-Bye" - #11 in 1998
"What It Feels Like for a Girl" - #23 in 2001
"Give Me All Your Luvin'" - #10 in 2012

Ok, enough of that tangent....back to Jake and Nightcrawler.  :)

"In all likelihood, there will be aspects of “Nightcrawler,” the new film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, that you might find unappealing. The subject matter itself, the seamy underbelly of Los Angeles videographers cashing in on the misery of others, is intense and depressing, and Gyllenhaal’s character, Lou Bloom, the film’s protagonist, is anything but a hero.

[...]

... Remember that Gyllenhaal, who seems to have ditched the terrible big-budget fare for the intelligent, challenging work with which he started, got his big break playing the lead role in “Donnie Darko,” a movie about a mentally ill teen whose visions eventually save everyone around him. If Donnie Darko grew up, he could have become Lou Bloom.

The film, though, is smart and sharp and tremendously well crafted. Gyllenhaal may well earn himself at least an Oscar nomination for the role, but credit must go to veteran screenwriter and first-time director Dan Gilroy, who has created a wholly unique and absolutely disturbing vision."

That sounds very promising and enlightening.
