Nominado Al Oscar Jake Gyllenhaal and the excellent Michael Pena co-star as cops on the streets of Los Angeles in this first trailer for End Of Watch, which is apparantly a found footage film. It’s like Cloverfield with Mexicans.

The video diary aesthetic places us right in the action and gives us a good sense of what life on the streets is like for a Los Angeles cop. They crack jokes with Mexicans, go to Mexican weddings, and get in gun fights with Mexicans. I think Mickey Rourke would be a much more fitting title for this film.

There are no details about what kind of secret hazing was involved in his initiation but Ruben Fleischer has announced that his 30 Minutes Or Less star Michael Peña has been allowed to join The Gangster Squad. The actor best known recently for his performances in Battle: Los Angeles, Observe and Report, and the second season of”Eastbound and Down,” will star alongside Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, and Ryan Gosling according to the director.

Not mentioned is Anthony Mackie, who probably didn’t have what it takes to pass initiation. You wanna be a star, you drink the pee. (Gordon and the Whale)

Here’s a startling development: It turns out Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t merely starring in End of Watch – he shaved his head and everything! My claim that he is the next Bruce Willis is really starting to bear out – funny because I had no idea what I was talking about at the time. The other mope in these pictures is Michael Peña, who did not shave his head, which I assume means that he is not as good an actor as Gyllenhaal.

In case you want to see more Gyllenhaal bald head pics (that might get us some more Google hits), you can see even more images from the “End of Watch Promotional Photoshoot In LA” by registering for a site called IHeartJakeMedia. Hey man, you do what you need to do. No judgement here.

Casting Round-Up: The Manson Family, An Unnecessary Sequel, And More http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-the-manson-family-an-unnecessary-sequel-and-more/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-the-manson-family-an-unnecessary-sequel-and-more/#comments Tue, 19 Apr 2011 16:54:24 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=207689 Get along, little doggies.

Yeeee-haw, ladies and varmints! Grab a-hold of the nearest steer, because it’s time for another casting round-up!

Charles Manson, one of the original cowboys, is experiencing an upsurge in popularity recently, perhaps due to the fact that he was a raving paranoiac before Glenn Beck made it cool. He’s got at least three movies in development all about him, including The Family and Manson Girls. But the movie we’re here to discuss is called Eyes of a Dreamer, which Lindsay Lohan is attached to. Now, shock-rocker/sad little man Marilyn Manson is in talks to play Charles Manson’s right-hand man Tex Watson. Gidddiiiyyyyaaaaap, people who want to see “detailed recreations” of the Manson murders!! (CinemaBlend)

OK pardners, you might be a-wonderin’ whether Chris Klein is gonna be in that newfangled American Pie sequel, American Reunion. Welp, I’m here to tell you that he is, returnin’ to the part he made famous, that of “Oz,” the lacrosse player. Lacrosse!? I don’t even know what to say about that, so instead I’ll tie a sheepshank and be done with it. (MovieWeb)

Josuha Jackson, who probably wouldn’t know a diamondback rattler from a stump toad, is set to appear in Lay the Favorite, a movie based on Beth Raymer’s memoir. I’d make a joke about how a cowboy would never read a “memoir,” but true cowboys don’t traffic in class warfare. Yee-haw! (Variety)

Now I can see yer gettin’ a littl restless, much as if you had Yankee spiders in yer boots. Don’t fret though, this is the last one: Michael Peña has signed on to the Jake Gyllenhaal police thriller End of Watch. Yip! Yip! (Variety)

Nick Swardson and Michael Pena Join ’30 Minutes Or Less’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nick-swardson-and-michael-pena-join-30-minutes-or-less/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/nick-swardson-and-michael-pena-join-30-minutes-or-less/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 People grieve in different ways.Michael Pena and fart detective Nick Swardson are in talks to join Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari in 30 Minutes or Less. Swardson will play the best friend to McBride's rigged-to-explode pizza guy cum (titter (hee hee!)) bank robber. Pena, who we'll see opposite McBride in season two of Eastbound and Down, is in talks to play a tattooed assassin. It's a good thing that the roles aren't reversed. I can't imagine Swardson as a tattooed assassin. Mostly because I can't take an assassin with a tramp stamp seriously. I don't know. He just seems like the type. (THR)
