Dr. Parnassus, Session Four

Feb 14, 2008

Q: Doctor Parnassus, what is this 'love that dare not speak its name'?
Doctor Parnassus: That, my funny Valentine, is a phraseology from a 19th century poetical effort by my distant cousin, Lord Freddy "Turtleneck" Douglas. It referred to a deep spiritual affection between two confirmed bachelors. In our less tolerant times, it refers to a deep spiritual affection between two men who are not confirmed bachelors.
Q: Non-bachelors cannot speak about their love?
Doctor Parnassus: Oh baby ruth…as another distant relative of mine said, there's a river running underground, underneath the town towards the sea. You say you love flowers, yet you pluck them. You say you love trees, yet you cut them down. And you wonder why some are afraid to speak their love!
Q: Is this about Jake and Heath?
Doctor Parnassus: My little dove bar, love is like a box of bitter chocolates. The one that we cannot have 
is the one that lasts the longest, cuts the deepest, and feels the strongest. Yes, love lifts us up where we belong, where the eagles fly, on a mountain high! Yet love is also like pi — natural, irrational, and in the end, unspeakable.
Q: So Jake does admire Heath?
Doctor Parnassus: Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back?
Q: Heath didn’t seem to want worshipping.
Doctor Parnassus: Hero with feet of clay, oh earthbound angel, oh shining knight of darkest sorrow, Adonis with an Achilles heel, sweet prince with a bitter smile! Doth perfect beauty stand in need of praise at all?
Q: Doc, you look flushed, are you all right?
Doctor Parnassus: Forgive me. I have a psychosomatic reaction to true religion.
Q: Since we’re on the topic of love…what about Jake’s bachelor friend Austin. Why is he out of the picture?
Doctor Parnassus: Cara caramello, I think the show had poor ratings.
Q: No, why is he never seen with Jake anymore?
Doctor Parnassus: As Mr Brando once advised Mr Rock Hudson, "you cannot get to the top by sitting on your bottom."
Q: What?
Doctor Parnassus: As the Chinaman says, "man who eats prunes, gets good run for money."
Q: I’m not following. Are you saying it’s a career move?
Doctor Parnassus: Dear turkish delight, your naivete is delicious.
Q: But…is Jake really into that woman?
Doctor Parnassus: The last time my client was inside a woman was when he went to the Statue of Liberty.
Q: Hmmm. Back to Heath. Jake can never speak of him?
Doctor Parnassus: As Sir Ang Lee once told me, Mr Gyllenhaal is the meandering river, Mr Ledger the bottomless ocean. The river knows not its depth until it reaches the ocean.
Q: You mean denial ain't just a river in Egypt?
Doctor Parnassus: Oi, reese's peanut butter cup! Mr Gyllenhaal has an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. Yet while we always love those who admire us, we do not always love those whom we admire.
Q: I am more confused than ever.
Doctor Parnassus: Butterfinger, you must be in love.

Being a star doesn't last. That's not what life should be about.

Maggie, Interview from 2007:

Indeed, she seems older than 30 already. Before she even started in the movie business, she says, she was wise to it. "One thing I learned, from watching my parents, is that you can be on top of the world and then the next year you can be nowhere. And then, later, you're interesting again; and then, suddenly, you're not. I watched that happen to them, and I watched it hurt them. I think I'm a bit armed by having seen that." Hence the feet firmly on the ground.

Jerry Bruckheimer Updates Prince of Persia - Shooting Starts in June

Ever since the idea of a Prince of Persia movie was first announced, I've been making sure to follow it extra closely. I think putting the project in the hands of producer Jerry Bruckheimer is instant success. Just look at what Bruckheimer has done in recent years: National Treasure 1 & 2, Pirates of the Caribbean, "The Amazing Race" on CBS, King Arthur, Bad Boys II, Black Hawk Down. His production value are incredible, and I might be hard-pressed to even say unmatchable. If you imagine all of that put into a Prince of Persia project, you've got instant success. There hasn't been an update on the project since Mike Newell (Donnie Brasco, Mona Lisa Smile, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) was announced as the director, but Bruckheimer has finally spoken about it.

Our friends at Collider caught up with Bruckheimer during press events for National Treasure: Book of Secrets, due out in a few weeks. Collider started out by asking the ever-so-important question: how they'll make a good movie out of Prince of Persia in a world where video game movies are destined to suck. And what does "the Bruck" respond with?

"We hired a very interesting director, Mike Newell, who did one of the Harry Potter's and also did Donnie Brasco and he's a very inventive, ingenious director and I think he's going to bring something really special to it. We're just starting to… we have a screenplay, we're just starting to develop the look of it. It'll be unique and fresh."

Thank goodness for that! If there is anyone I have faith in turning out the first good video game adaptation, it would definitely be the duo of Bruckheimer and Newell. He also confirms that if it works, as in makes money and is successful, they'll be aiming to turn this into a franchise, just as he did with Pirates of the Caribbean. Bruckheimer also went on to say that it definitely will be a period film and they won't try and make it contemporary. They're aiming to start filming in June of next year as long as the writers strike ends in due time and the directors and actors strikes don't kick in either.

As a final question, Collider asked how Jerry was first introduced to the video game.

"It's a game that was brought to us early on and I thought it was very exciting and thought it was an interesting… first of all it's an interesting period and it's something that other people weren't doing. So I always like to go into new arenas that other filmmakers aren't in."

I'll continue to say it and continue to believe it: just as Michael Bay was perfect for bringing Transformers to the screen, Jerry Bruckheimer is perfect for bringing Prince of Persia to the screen. Unfortunately Jerry really didn't have anything too new to bring to the table, besides that a screenplay is developed and that they're aiming to start production in June of 2008. Are you still looking forward to Prince of Persia on the big screen?

Jerry Bruckheimer Updates Prince of Persia

Jake's house for sale said...

Does the fact that "Brokeback Mountain" star Jake Gyllenhaal, 27, may be a boomerang kid who sometimes stays with his parents make you love him any less? Me neither.

Our "I saw evidence of Jake" spotter toured the five-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,000-square-foot home that is listed for sale. The asking price has dropped from $4.2 million to $3,795,000 - sounds like they're getting serious after three months on the market.

The listing agent says Jake doesn't live there - part time or otherwise - and points instead to the "modern light-filled design with an expansive fully equipped cook's kitchen" as a selling point. (Note to agent: Saying "come take a look and you might see Jake" is a bigger lure.) Anyway, the outdoor area was designed by landscape-designer-to-the-stars Jay Griffith. The property is almost an acre; the house sits way down a long driveway and juts out on a promontory from which there are magnificent city views.

Jake's house for sale said...

Ops... I've read SF Gate article one more time - they must be talking about Jake's parents house.

Sorry.

Anonymous said...

I think what they are getting at is that Jake has been spotted at his parents home, which has been up for sale for months.

It could be that Jake is over-seeing the sale of his parents home since they no longer live there (house sitting then dissappears when the real estate agents shows the house)

Key words in the article: Boomarang kid: One who goes back home to live. I think Jake no longer has his home in the HH, if he sold it to a Real estate co, then it would have not be listed.

IMO he goes back and forth from Reese's in Brentwood and his parents place, and since it's supposed to be hush-hush about his parents split, he ain't advertising it.

Jake's parents havn't lived i that home for over a year, they rented out last summer.

Jake's parents could sell their house to a Real estate co if they wanted it to be hush-hush. Selling the house isn't a proof that they are divorced / separated.

No offers=free time to travel!

Jake doesn't seem to be into it anymore?? Go look at some of the pics after Rome and Napa valley, he isn't even touching her. The pics in NY for example. The ones at the market and a few others where he has his arm around her are the same as the ones from this weekend.

The nailed set pics, both sets they are holding hands. If anything she seems a bit not ino it, hiding behind him in one set and not hugging him back when he is hugging her.

He looks more into it then she, i bet she is bored already. Maybe a on set photo op in the UK and Morocco will perk her up.

PS: If you check out the Kiki/Jake pics on IHJ you will see the same giddy, affectionate shots mixed with the bored not holding hands walking behind each other pics, uncanny.

PS: I know you are dissapointed in Jake, but if you look at these pics, the ones from last week and even the 1st set from the Nailed set, it's Jake that is initiating contact, not her.

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, I have to agree with 3:43 PM.

Still, Morocco and England are far away from LA and PoP filming will be more demanding.

Anonymous said...

Jake didn't need all this that's what I truly believe. He doesn't need a high profile real or fake relationship. He should have continued to do smaller, quality movies. He's a solid enough actor, so I doubt he didn't get any such offers. What Jake seems to want, sadly, is attention, with his relationships (real of fake) and he wants to be in big, blockbuster movies. He wants to be a big star. He's not an actor's actor anymore. He should have waited for a more intersting franchise later on in his career, I'm not saying PoP won't be a success, but IDK.

Anonymous said...

Alas, the transformation may be complete. I don't think he needed this either, he showed what he could do in BBM.

I wouldn't compare TDAT with PoP.

Same type of movie. Movies where CGI effects and action coreography is more important then actors.

I'd still comparte it to Depp's Pirates rather than TDAT from what I've heard.

Why? What's the important difference?

TDAT was an environmetal, disaster movie with a message. But PoP will be a fun adventure and love story combined.
What the two movies have in common is the saving the world, but that's the theme in a lot of movies.

TDAT might have an important message but the movie wasn't filmed because of the message and the public didn't watch it for the message. There was adventure and love story in the TDAT too.

Cool PoP artwork

With the news that Jake Gyllenhaal will be starring in a movie version, here is some artwork from the recent Prince of Persia games, sepcifically the last two. Although the live-action movie will be inspired by the game (as opposed to based on it), I wonder if Jake will even compare to the hero of these games.

PoP is great news for Jake and I believe that movie will be a success. PoP will help but I don't believe it will do wonders for his career.

Nice artwork - this one almost looks like Jake. He could have the long hair but just not so severely blunt cut and parted straight down the middle as the videogame character. The hair, eyes, slight goatee and beard in this artwork is breathtaking.

One thing we all know for sure, Jake will look gorgeous as Dastan.

Despite of some supposed character weaknesses, we can all agree he is still a very good looking man.
Girls and young women are going to flock to see the movie.

^^Of that we can be sure. Dont' forget some of us old bats will go too. ;)

With the hair in these drawings, it still gives enough of the suggestion of the videogame character's hairstyle that you recognize who it is, but not so severe as to be a caricature.

Q: Doctor Parnassus, what is this 'love that dare not speak its name'?
Doctor Parnassus: That, my funny Valentine, is a phraseology from a 19th century poetical effort by my distant cousin, Lord Freddy "Turtleneck" Douglas. It referred to a deep spiritual affection between two confirmed bachelors. In our less tolerant times, it refers to a deep spiritual affection between two men who are not confirmed bachelors.


This has got to be the best Dr. Parnassus session yet. Very clever. :)

Actors must be made of pretty strong stuff, to continue to do what they do, and not pay any attention to the naysayers. Some of you sound like you are delighted to imagine someone having misfortune, why I can't guess.

Jake did do an excellent accent (two accents as a matter of fact) in BBM; but I'm not sure he would be able to master a Middle Eastern one. I'm not even sure Johnny Depp or DDL could do one perfectly (and they're master actors in my opinion). But I know if he does one, I will laugh my ass off.

Anonymous said...

He probably won't need one, where it's a fantasy story and not based on a real character. I'm sure he could do a fine job if need be. If Kevin Costner could play Robin Hood with a Southern California accent, then . . .

Interesting Dlisted comment:

"One of my gay male friends massively fancies Jakey G and they're actually very similar both in looks and mannerisms. My friend is a completely non-queeny gay who hates the camp gay scene and who you'd assume was straight unless you knew otherwise. He's tall and strong, interested in cars and overall quite manly. He only gives it away in small ways like his attention to detail in matters of interior design, home furnishings, clothes etc - the type of things most straight men would never think about in such detail. Jake Gyllenhaal strikes me as one of these. Not overly camp or queeny like you could imagine Tom Cruise or John Travolta could be if they let it out, but just quietly, happily gay. The body language between him and Kirsten Dunst was a total giveaway - there's no way they were a couple, they were like brother and sister. I'm certain he was just her gay best friend/beard."

Went forum gossip said...

The insider adds that Wentworth has no shame about his gay status, but was concealing it for the sake of his show’s ratings in conservative middle America. “Wentworth is not ashamed or embarassed at all about being gay,” says the insider. “He’s kept quiet and denied being gay for the show’s sake so far. But that was before he fell in love with Luke.”

That is exactly what I heard from another insider - she particularly emphasized that Went is not at all ashamed of his homosexuality, is completely comfortable in his own skin, but has been playing the game at the behest of the network and for what is perceived as the good of the show.

He takes his responsibilities with regard to the success of "PB" extremely seriously - including feeling responsible for the jobs of all the people that work on it - and does not want to do anything to jeopardize that. Given the homophobic attitudes of much of Middle America, I think it's completely understandable he's nervous and cautious on this issue.

Obviously the burden became almost unbearable to him during his relationship with Luke, and he's now playing the game in the most limited way possible ("No comments" to personal questions, etc). The telling thing will be what happens after "PB" ends. From recent comments he's made, it seems pretty clear he is keen for this coming one to be the last season.

The only good thing about all these Reeke pics the last few days, is that Jake is looking to fine for words. All that working out is paying off. PoP will probably suck, but it'll be good to look at Jake for about 2 hours half dressed.

Guess the rumors about Jake selling his house and living with Reese are true. He's always photographed in Brentwood or Santa Monica with the Chin. Was hoping that when he left the country to start filming, he could use that distance excuse to finally end the phonymance, but guess his contract with the devil isn't up yet.

Completely agree Tom, that and the reunion kiss. The look on Jake's face says a lot. I know people say it's just great acting but I think one can't fake it like that.

BBM said...

Ang Lee on Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Chemistry Onscreen:

“The chemistry I pretty much played in my head because nobody sees. I didn’t see it. I just imagined they were a good couple. I cast Heath very much as the short story required. I did something quite different with Jake. In the novel, he is even stronger, bulkier, shorter, very rough. And Jake, of course, is more like a city boy. I think he is a good romantic lead and I think he is a good counterpart to Heath.

I cast Jake first and then Heath. I was hoping I would meet somebody like Heath. As soon as I met Heath, I imagined they would be a good match for a romantic love story. The first time I met them together we were in L.A. in a restaurant. So, that was the first time all three of us were together.”

I definitely dont see reeke running off to Morrocco. First I think she would be afraid she might catch something. reeke made an appearance in SC because she has friends or family there. She also has friends in MV where she made an appearance last summer.

Anonymous said...

She may have friends in MV,(The Belushis)but she has never been spotted there before according to residents there, and Reese and the kids were spotted with Jake and his family so she wasn't there just to see the Belushis.

It looks like her summer is free according her IMDB page, if not Morocco definately the UK, why not?

Don't right off Morocco either.

Her family has a vacation home in Charleston, so expect more visits until he is finished fiming.

Yes, they need to show him getting into shape for PoP especially after the way the news of him being cast as the prince has been received. His PR needs to make him interesting and appealing again, too bad it ain’t working.

Anonymous said...

Don't get why they still feel the need to continue the Reeke show. Obiviously, Reese is in control and she's gotten all she can from it. She's shown her fans she can move on from a failed marriage and get a good looking boyfriend who is sensitive and caring and loves her kids. Jake shows he likes girls and kids and is sensitive and caring at the same time. But, now that even the most fannish sites-Just Jared, PopSugar & even IHJ-have people leaving comments that they look awkward and look like a fake couple, their PR firm and them should just cut their losses. It would make the both of them look so much better in the public eye.
