You all know about my love for Jake Gyllenhaal, so it should come as no surprise that today is a national holiday here at Rants of a Diva. After a Gyllenhaal-free 2006, my Jakey returned in 2007 with one great film (Zodiac) and one kind of sucky film (Rendition, ugh). It was a joyous reunion and I cherished every moment between us. Unfortunately, it looks like 2008 will be Gyllenhaal-less yet again (damn, why can't he be less choosy with his roles?). But after the drought, we will have a Gyllenhaal feast in 2009 with Brothers in which he plays Tobey Maguire's brother and they fight over Natalie Portman (can't wait!) and something known as Untitled Moon Project which is supposed to be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and deals with astronauts going to the moon. Plus, he signed on a few weeks ago to play football superstar "Broadway" Joe Namath in a biopic (I smell an Oscar!). I can't wait for all this Gyllenhaal in 2009- I just hope I don't pass out from all the excitement!
I wish my Jakey the happiest 27th birthday!
