Jake is all over the place these days and sometimes he has a steesh. He is currently on the Fox show New Girl, which isn’t such a bad show. He’s got a part in the movie 21 Jump Street that comes out today and is getting much better reviews than anyone (I) could have imagined.
He really did a great job as Teddy in the movie Ceremony, which now plays on premium channels quite a bit, and he also had a small role in my favorite scene from the web series Clark and Michael.
Gene Hackman was a good actor. He retired in 2006 and has actually stuck to it. He’s been in a lot of good movies, but when I think of him I immediately picture the disgusting chain-smoking guy from Heartbreakers, which is a better movie than you remember.
