‘Source’ of on-set jokes

Summit's saucy Gotham premiere

Jake Gyllenhaal addressed rumors about playing train traveling, falling in love in eight minutes and being a jokester on set at Thursday’s New York screening of Summit Entertainment’s thriller “Source Code.”

“OK so this guy walks into a bar … if you really want them, you wouldn’t be able write about them,” Gyllenhaal said. “I am a somber, very serious actor. I take myself way too seriously.”

At the Crosby Street Hotel screening, hosted by the Cinema Society and Coach, director Duncan Jones said things were sometimes not so serious on set, especially when it came to Gyllenhaal and cast mate Canadian comedian Russell Peters.

“I had two secret weapons … both very very funny guys,” said Jones. “Russell made the jokes, constantly. None of them I can repeat. They were all very blue, as in adult humor. Very dirty.”

Gyllenhaal’s co-star Michelle Monaghan said the sci-fi theme of the film should not intimidate viewers.

“I don’t understand anything about technology, and I did all right,” Monaghan said.

Lindsay Lohan, Gina Gershon, Dana Delany plus Howard and Beth Stern all came out to support the film, as did a handful of models including Alex Lundqvist and Tyson Ballou.

Jeffrey Wright, who also stars in the film, reunited with his cast and director at the after party, also at the Crosby. The crowd included James Marsden, Seth Meyers, Courtney Love, Russell Simmons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and musician Rufus Wainwright.
