Dr. Parnassus, Session Five

Feb 20, 2008

Q: Doctor Parnassus, where have you been?
Doctor Parnassus: Oh crumpet, I’ve been toiling in the vineyards of the bored. I was about to take a bath. You’ve caught me nudo rigido.
Q: Excusi! Doc, I know our sessions are meant to be about Jake, but I can’t seem to forget Heath.
Doctor Parnassus: Ah, the Romeo and Juliet of our time. Earth and air, yin and yang, 6 and 9. Despite their uncoupling by Mr Gyllenhaal, the cosmic duality endures, my sad friend. Each exists most fully in relationship to the other, revealing psychological context through patterns generated by their perpetual interplay. We must accept the paradox: opposite things can be simultaneously true.
Q: They are opposites?
Doctor Parnassus: As an expert in metaphysico-theologico-cosmolonigology, I can authoritatively say, chalk and cheese, my dumpling.
Q: Is this why Jake has abandoned Heath?
Doctor Parnassus: Sweet pea, don’t be bitter. It takes loose reins to keep love tight! Cold is hot. Silence speaks.
Q: We’ve been over this ground many times before. William Shakespeare wrote, they do not love that do not show their love.
Doctor Parnassus: Well-quoted, little cabbage. But as genius actor Mr Danny Day-Lewis said about Mr Ledger (and it takes one to know one), “we wanted to follow him and yet we were afraid to follow him. He was perfect.” Argumentum ad Populum. My darling bachelor neighbor, Georgie Clooney, eloquently explained the stature of Mr Day-Lewis: "all actors bow to this f**ker." Ergo, with Mr Ledger placed in the pantheon by the Zeus thespian himself — well, who dare speak after God has spoken? Mr Ledger left his actorian fellows in awe of his virtuosity. Mr Gyllenhaal, bless his heart, left his fellows in lust. Dilemma of position.
Q: There’s no evidence that Jake even liked Heath.
Doctor Parnassus: As I said before, and I never repeat myself, you don’t see the air, yet we still breathe. Man is not an aquatic animal, yet we still swim. Of course, all generalizations are false.
Q: Doc, it’s hard to believe what you say has any basis in reality.
Doctor Parnassus: Darling infidel! Primo, reality is vastly overrated. Secondo, what we gain by truth is not worth that we lose in illusion. Terzo, if you wanted veracity, sugarbritches, you wouldn’t be here with me.
Q: Can we just talk about sex?
Doctor Parnassus: My clinical speculatum! I practice a lot on my own. The brain is really my second favorite organ. You know, the Archimedes’ principle supports the theory that a man immersed in the liquid of male love experiences an upward thrust equal to the weight of women he displaces.
Q: Must we be cryptic? You’re saying gay love can boost a career?
Doctor Parnassus: Mr Gyllenhaal once had a large gay following, but Jake ducked into a Roman alleyway and lost him.
Q: Now really —
Doctor Parnassus: Mr Moto says, man with hand in pocket feel cocky all day!
Q: Jake needs to be more…cocky?
Doctor Parnassus: Well, he chased a girl for two years only to discover that her tastes were exactly like his: they were both mad about boys.
Q: Who isn't?
Doctor Parnassus: When heterosexuals warn you of the sinfulness of sex, there is an important lesson to be learned! Do not have sex with heterosexuals.
Q: Good night, Doctor P.
Doctor Parnassus: Sex is better than logic, but I can't prove it.

'Nailed' shooting resumes

“Nailed” is back in production this week in Columbia after its third work union stoppage in a month, but the movie’s producer is facing lawsuits for unpaid bills and loans, a trade publication is reporting.

David Bergstein, who heads “Nailed” backer Capitol Films, has been sued by advertising promoter Allied Advertising for $4.2 million in unpaid bills, Variety reported. This month, businessman Alexander Sandel filed suit against Bergstein and five affiliated production entities over loans totaling more than $4.5 million, Variety reported. Bergstein did not respond to Variety’s request for comment. Bergstein is expected to close a bridge financing deal soon, the publication reported.

The comedy “Nailed,” starring Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal, started shooting in mid-April around Columbia. Shooting is scheduled to end in mid-June. The International Alliance of Theatrical & Stage Employees ordered its members last week to not show up at the set after not being paid. The same union also stopped production a couple of weeks ago after not being paid.

The Screen Actors Guild had ordered its members to walk off the film set early this month because producers failed to deposit enough money in accounts to pay actors. Forty-six checks for the “Nailed” production bounced due to insufficient funds, according to the film’s bankers quoted by Variety.

Heath Ledger's legacy to live on in scholarship

Heath Ledger was known for helping out young Australian actors hoping to make it big in Hollywood. He'd offer them a couch to sleep on in his Hollywood Hills home or advice over a beer. Ledger's helping hand will continue, despite the 28-year-old's shock death in January in Manhattan from an accidental prescription drug overdose.

Hollywood-based organisation, Australians in Film (AIF), along with Ledger's family, have created a scholarship. The Heath Ledger Scholarship Fund will be presented annually to a young Australian-based actor to help them pursue their dream in Hollywood.

"Los Angeles is a tough place to break through and can be daunting for young Aussies," AIF president Susie Dobson said. "Heath was always ready to help out young Aussies and his family is extremely happy that this scholarship will continue do so in his name."

AIF, a seven-year-old organisation for expatriate Australians in the US entertainment industry, boasts Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Geoffrey Rush and Mel Gibson among its 30 ambassadors. The first scholarship recipient will be announced in 2009.

Its financial worth is still to be finalised, but Dobson said it could help the actor pay for acting classes, rent or other significant costs. AIF also honours young Australian actors each year at its annual Breakthrough Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills. Australian actresses Abbie Cornish, 25, and Mia Wasikowska, 17, will be honoured at this year's ceremony on June 5.

Cornish was first recognised in the US for her award-winning role in the 2004 independent Australian film, Somersault, and has gone on to star in Elizabeth: the Golden Age, with Cate Blanchett; the Iraq war drama Stop Loss, opposite Ryan Philippe; and will soon be seen in Jane Campion's new film, Bright Star.

Lorenzo Odone, Subject of Lorenzo's Oil

The man whose parents' battle to save him from a nerve disease was depicted in the movie 'Lorenzo's Oil' died Friday at his home in Virginia, having lived more than 20 years longer than doctors had predicted. Lorenzo Odone, who doctors had predicted would die in childhood, died one day after his 30th birthday, said his father, Augusto Odone. Lorenzo Odone had come down with aspiration pneumonia recently after getting food stuck in his lungs, his father said. He began bleeding heavily, and before an ambulance reached their home his son was dead, Odone said. 'He could not see or communicate, but he was still with us,' Odone said Friday. 'He did not suffer. That's the important thing.'"

In the German OK magazine, they write how difficult the seperation will be for Jake and Reese when Jake goes to Marocco to shoot PoP.

Just today I was reading through gossip magazines and Reeke was featured in a few. They both look like they think they are so important when you see pictures of them together.

Oh and in the German InStyle magazine they had a photo of Jake and his Godmother Jamie Lee Curtis and an old quote by Jake when he said how important his Godparents are to him.
Hopefully he'll take his Godfather duty more seriously in the future. Now it seems he doesn't. He probably doesn't have time because of Reeke.

Yes, 6.15 it seemed like that at the time but not after Rome. Now he's 100% in it. Last year I think it was to sell Rendition, now it's to sell PoP... it will never stop.

"Any ideas why he wasn't 100% in it from the very beginning?"

IMO, after the success of BBM Jake has played both sides of the fence - fanswise. He played to his gay fans but always indirectly bearded with Greta, Natalie and a host of others. After the failure of Zodiac & Rendition, he probably thought the gay rumors had got out of hand and the gay fans (he was thought of as a gay icon after BBM) alone certainly didn't help his films become BO hits. So he dumped his gay fans, became straighter than straight & guess what, he got PoP!

6:27 am, he may be 100% in it, but their body language has become more uncomfortable. The Rome pics and Napa pics they each had an arm around each other and looked slightly awkward.

8:52 am, it's probably because what ever you say in print stays there forever and can come back to bite you in the ass. Jake said "yes" to being friends, he's telling the truth. He never said specifically, "No we're not dating" and neither one has come out and said they were dating, so when they break up, they can both say, "We never confirmed we were together romantically". It's really splitting hairs.

Anonymous said...

I really don't understand how some people can think that Reeke wasn't planned months before Rome. Remember the March'07 planted rumors, bs sightings, the summer car pics, the MV rumors, the assistant lookalike trick? Everything was carefully orchestrated for the fauxmance to be revealed to the public in October. It’s so obvious this was planned way before the Rendition promotion.

Because in speaking you make a conscious decision and effort to actively tell something, whereas just going along with a "scenario" or lying by omission is passive. A lot of people are very uncomfortable actually speaking something they know is not true, so you get all of the descriptions "shifty eyes" or "fidgety" "can't look you in the eye" and "blushing", unless the person is a pathological liar.

Actions may speak louder than words on a lot of occasions, but that doesn't mean words are never necessary.

Is it me or does this sound really really stupid? Why would it matter if the actors were straight/gay/bi, would they be any less convincing?
After reading this interview in September I knew he won't ever come out cause someone who wants out of the closed doesn't say stuff like he said in it, I still hoped he won't beard though, silly me.

Telegraph, UK, interview:

OK, having established that he is not bisexual, was he being quite calculating when he allowed people to think he was? 'It was meant as a way of saying it was important for Heath [Ledger, his co-star in Brokeback Mountain] and I to have the movie exist as the movie, but also to have people know it was two straight actors playing those parts.'

I think I follow. The chemistry and tension wouldn't have worked as well if two gay actors had been playing those roles, and because they were both straight it made their sexual awkwardness more convincing, more like it might be for two cowboys. 'Exactly. Here are these two lonely people who find themselves through love. Love has no bounds and these two people found a connection in this massive, lonely landscape of Wyoming.'


Jake let people think he is / might be bisexual because it was important to have people know it was two straight actors playing those parts. Huh?

Jake let people think he is / might be bisexual because it was important to have people know it was two straight actors playing those parts. Huh?

Yeah, exactly, huh? Actually this is pretty funny. LOL

Old Toothy BI from Ted:

"Tooth-doll not only seduced the man who would decide the whole-deal shebang (it's sort of a studly adventure story, in so many ways), he now shares cocaine, hotel suites and party favors with the bigwig. Isn't that sweet when one can stay bestest amigos with one's ladder-climbing bed partners?"

I think he meant he is straight

Anonymous said...

Yes, in that interview Jake was saying he's straight (and single), but this is different subject:

OK, having established that he is not bisexual, was he being quite calculating when he allowed people to think he was? 'It was meant as a way of saying it was important for Heath and I to have the movie exist as the movie, but also to have people know it was two straight actors playing those parts.'

Two Tush-Trying Blind Vices

That Toothy Tile. He just lives to push the fagola envelope, love that about the young acting hunk! (And I know you do, too.)

Now, quite frankly, T2's latest man-on-man moves far outshine his recent movie choices; though, that's an arguable statement at best—I just don't go fer this hetero image Mr. T. is busy trying to push over on his ever loyal, hapless, ticket-buying fans.

But we'll just leave that li'l bit o' politically incorrect poo-pooing and get straight, as it were, to the attempted wild sex in the back of the limousine, 'kay? Thought you might agree...

Oh, gawd, I am getting old. I'm confusing all these closeted fruits into one big ass-banging aspic! So, sorry. It was Jiggly Wiggle-Poof who pounced—quite stupidly, I might add—on his so-not-gay limo driver while out promoting his supersuccessful boob-tube show in some hick state. And let's just say what went down was not at all what Jiggly had in mind (something bruised, not blushing).

Also, there's hope, I want you all to know, for Mr. Tile's movie career. Dare I say some of his future film projects are looking up, because, uh, how can I put this? T.T. has decided to start sleeping with better-looking people now to get his future projects—is that being too crass about it all?

In other words, for T.T.'s next 40-foot-wide job, Tooth-doll not only seduced the man who would decide the whole-deal shebang (it's sort of a studly adventure story, in so many ways), he now shares cocaine, hotel suites and party favors with the bigwig. Isn't that sweet when one can stay bestest amigos with one's ladder-climbing bed partners?

Warms my jaded-ass heart.

I asked this on DL, what does "party favors" mean?

Anonymous said...

I asked this on DL, what does "party favors" mean?

Sex and drugs:

"Users to the free service post anonymous notes in the "men seeking men" section, looking for others who want to "PNP," or party and play. In other words, these guys are looking for others who want to use party drugs like ecstasy, Viagra and crystal meth, and engage in sex -- sometimes unsafe, "unrestricted" sex, as many of the posts advertise.

In the posts, the men will use slang in reference to different drugs, like "420" for marijuana; "Tina" for crystal or speed; and a variety of creative uses with the letter "E" for ecstasy. Many times, men will post that they have "party favors" and want to keep their party going.

This is so unlike Jake. He really doesn't seem to be that type of guy.
I believe the coke rumors, because everyone in Hollywood did/does it, but unsafe sex and various pills. Not Jake! I don't believe it!

Anonymous said...

But he says next 40 ft wide job and that was Rendition, which was a political thriller, but he was studly in that, Brothers, studly/bad boy, the adventure part would be more with Tobey's character, Nailed, no. The Untitled Moon Project sounds more like it, Pop, is a movie based on a video game, and although the idea of a movie has been bouncing around, Jakes name was only attached to it this past March, this BI was over a year and a half ago.

PS: Sleeping with better looking people/plural =producers and Reese? We all think he got POP because of Reese, legit or not, he wouldn't feel the need to beard to get the part if he already allegedly slept with the HW bigwig/producer.

If true, it's the Moon proj. which was announced beforw POP.

That's just part of the "party favors" explanation - no one suggested Jake used anonymous sex services. (There is a rumor that Clay Aiken did.)

Of course not.

I think it's PoP.

"A studly adventure story" sounds like the Prince of Persia synopsis.

PoP script that we have is from June 15, 2006 - 4 months before the BI. A lot of time for it to circulate around Hollywood.

Jakes name was only attached to it this past March...
There was no reason to announce it earlier.

Jake has abandoned Heath.

Ah, the Romeo and Juliet of our time. Earth and air, yin and yang, 6 and 9. Despite their uncoupling by Mr Gyllenhaal, the cosmic duality endures, my sad friend. Each exists most fully in relationship to the other, revealing psychological context through patterns generated by their perpetual interplay.

OK, could be. But gay men are very visual ;)

Anonymous said...

If that's the case, then the bearding with Reese makes no sense. If he did all that to get a part or parts, then there is o reason to beard, he got the part/parts.

IMO the bearding has nothing to do with getting movie parts, but for his public image.

POP is a Disney production, they would have set him up back in '06 with a beard, and no Natalie and Great don't count. And it would have been someone totally opposite of Reese who is older and not the fan base they are looking for, k
like the fake Zanessa.

It seems to me that with Pop and The Moon proj., another blocbuster type flick that he got them and then he decide to beard full steam ahead.

Jake is trying to erase all the aagy rumors with Reese and her kids IMO, it's personal not professional.

Jake got the beard right after he got the PoP role (or the promise that role will be his) - end of 2006, Rendition filming.

2:38: how do you know when he was offerd Pop? The thread on IMDB says that disney had his name on the short list in January of '08. They narrowed it down to him in March of this year and offered him the part. This was postd by the same person that predicted that Jake and Gemma got the parts and it would be announced at the end of May.

Again: sex for a part and he got it. It seems to me he put out for it and still decided to beard, that's more profesional and shows that he is bothered by the rumors.

I thought Jake had all kinds of HW connections through his parents, why would he need to engage in sex with HW bigwigs and beard with Jake now? Or has he done this all along? And what about Maggie? Did she use the casting cooach too?

The imdb pster was right on the money with the casting news, they predicted in March BEFORE the rset of the internet started posting about it in April (Latino review) the posted sounded like they were from the UK where half of POP will be filmed. His co-stars were already announced before him, they were just waiting for his reponse, he was given the script before he went to SC to film Nailed.

Word is that he wasn't 100% sure, thought the part was a bit cheesey at first, I guess he changed his mind.

Coming up in '09: The Moon project and The Joe Namath Bio. and the bearding will continue.

Coming up in '09: The Moon project and The Joe Namath Bio. and the bearding will continue.

FYI: The Untitled Moon Project has been put on hold by Doug Liman. The director is focusing his next move on Jumper 2 (with Hayden Christensen). And since it has been confirmed as a trilogy (right after the release of Jumper 1), Doug Liman is eagerly working on this Jumper trilogy (something Doug wanted with Bourne, which was taken out of his hands then and as he says now it won't happen again). So, Doug Liman is not working with Jake Gyllenhaal, but happily working with Hayden Christensen (and as you can see, these actors acting skills have nothing to do here):)

And this means no Untitled Moon Project for Jake in the near future.

Some names appear on one list and not the other, like Kyra Sedwick and Rita Wilson, Tobey and Beckham who does not appear on E's list but you think she would.

The guesta are named and listed probably based on when they arrived, i assume that that all 250guests didn't arrive at once, some I bet made a cameo like Dakota Fanning which I think was past her bedtime.

I thought Tom was a joke in HW, i guess he kissed and made up with the right people.
