Jake Gyllenhaal to Let His Brother Go to War

September 25th, 2007 // 4 Comments

OK, Jake, we see that you give very piercing face. No need to get overboard about it. While Jake here, looks straight into our souls, we can distract ourselves with the news that he plans on starring in a remake of the Danish war flick, “Brothers.” In the film, Gyllenhaal will be taking on the role of the younger brother, who cares for the wife and child of his older brother after the elder is sent to battle in Afghanistan. Tobey Maguire is slated to portray the character of the older brother. That seems like pretty ingenious casting to me, since I used to get the two of them confused in the past. Until Tobey developed a sometimes-pot-belly, that is. There’s nothing like a set of washboard abs to make sure I know who the heck you are.

    I don’t care how many Grizzly Adams photos I see of him doing manly, testosterone fueled activities like fishing or chopping wood or lifting bicycles, I still think ..YMCA !

  2. Yeah

    Guess what, green cardigan, lots of those YMCA gay guys also chop wood, ride bikes, etc. Can’t live your life by a stereotype so you may want to grow up.

    yeah – sure, I’ve no doubt they do. What I wrote was tongue in cheek. I think Jake G is gay but seems to be trying to portray an image of being a straight guy.
    You may want to lose the attitude.

  4. Um

    Um, green cardigan, gay men can chop wood, fish, etc. Jake doing those activities does not mean he is “trying” to be straight. Again you seem to be stereotyping.
