interviewer: it’s a pleasure meeting you. You’re one of our favorite actors in the world.
jake gyllenhaal: That’s very nice of you!

interviewer: Tell us about your involvement with the Edible Schoolyard.
jake gyllenhaal: I’ve been involved with them for a couple of years. I’m titled by Alice Waters, the ambassador of the school yard. I got involved because the dinner table was always a place, since I was a young child, where we got to get together, and I actually got to know my family there more than any other place in the world. I grew up growing my own food in our family garden. One of my best friends is a farmer. It’s been a primary focus of my life.


interviewer: We love food!
jake gyllenhaal: I didn’t realize that I grew up in the slow food movement. I see children who didn’t know any of these things—that they can grow their own food and learn about vegetables when they are at a primary level. It was everything to me, so I wanted to be involved. Since knowing about this organization, I’ve done everything I can.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s come a long way since his “Bubble Boy” days a decade ago — especially when it comes to on-screen Vegas visits.

Playing the wrapped-in-plastic title role 10 years ago, Gyllenhaal took a neon-nights cruise down the Strip on the back of Danny Trejo’s motorcycle.

This week, the all-grown-up Gyllenhaal returns to the Strip for the gritty cop drama “End of Watch,” from writer-director David Ayer (whose credits range from “Training Day” screenwriter to “Street Kings” director).


“End of Watch” is expected to end principal production Tuesday in L.A. — which makes sense, considering the movie focuses on the partnership, and friendship, between two L.A. police officers. They’re played by Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, who’s reportedly not making the trek to Caesars Palace later this week. Watch for “End of Watch” in theaters next year.

INTERVIEWER :What made you interested in portraying Captain Colter Stevens in Source Code?

Jake Gyllenhaal :“I would have to say it was two things, the screenplay (by Ben Ripley), but mostly because of the director, Duncan Jones. Duncan made the most extraordinary movie with his debut film, Moon. I thought he and I would really work well together doing Source Code. And we did. Also, Duncan had this inherent trust in me, as an actor, and that felt good. I had weeks to work with someone as extraordinary as him, and it was like a godsend, you know. But I was also lucky to such a great character. He is someone I could look up to in participating in the Source Code program.”


INTERVIEWER :Do actors ever need any decompression time to get back to normal after doing love scenes or even something like the incredible action scenes in the Source Code?

Jake Gyllenhaal :“Well, the making of any movie is always full of its own odd moments. When you do a serious scene where no one can’t stop laughing or there is an intense moment and you are supposed to break tables and chairs, and can’t get it right and you have to go and put everything...
