Variety Actors on Actors: Portrait

December 2nd, 2014

Variety posted today some portraits done to their Variety Studios: Actors on Actors with a little excerpt from the interview. The magazine containing the full feature is out, and scans will be shared asap.

Jake Gyllenhaal (“Nightcrawler”) & Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”)
Gyllenhaal: A lot of people talk about how disturbing or creepy the character is. And ultimately, I think he’s very vulnerable and he’s violently protecting something.”

Arquette: “The weird thing about this movie, because we didn’t have a full script to begin with — we had an anatomy — was you had to have flexibility. Usually as an actor, you make specific choices and depend on your script and on knowing everything about why (a choice is) the right choice to make.”

First image from ‘Southpaw’

November 28th, 2014


Deadline shared today the first image of Jake from the Antoine Fuqua-directed Kurt Sutter-scripted Southpaw. It has also Fuqua talking about Jake:

“He sure has grown up. I love this guy. I met Jake years ago before he did End of Watch, and I saw something in him. I told him he needed to do more masculine films because I could see he had this power in him, and good size, and great expressive eyes. When I met him I said, ‘You’ve got to start doing that.’ And I watched him start. Working with him was a great experience because he’s so committed and gives his heart. You’re going to see in this movie, how far he has come. I asked this guy from day one, ‘I need you in the gym every day. I need you to train every day.’ And I said, ‘The word is sacrifice.’

“Literally. I think he broke up with his girlfriend because he was just in the gym every day,” Fuqua said. “He was training like a fighter. I had him sparring, really getting hit. I put him in situations where I wanted to see what he was made of. No one but fighters understand the sacrifice it takes to be a fighter.”
