Towleroad‘s Andy Towle is always present and accounted for when it comes to fresh Jake Gyllenhaal. He’s been there for us with early Brokeback Mountain stills and news. Now he’s got this on Jarhead, the no-combat war film opening Friday. Andy talks about the already famous Santa hat scene.
Back to the Santa hat. For those of you Jake fans, there are scenes where the soldiers are partying in which Swofford’s privates are covered only by a Santa hat — extended scenes of Gyllenhaal’s bare backside, and a hot shower scene in which he goes full frontal. Granted, the scene is very shadowy, but you can definitely see that Mr. G is not lacking in that department. Nude and half-nude testosterone-charged Marines are simply one element of this film’s gorgeous palette.
