Jake Lloyd 10 years later video - Page 2

post #51 of 97
I'm sure he had a little booth at some point, that's what they do with the celebrities at Star Wars weekends. Heck, they even had the director of the Clone Wars cartoon movie signing last year and this year (I'm guessing 99.99% of normal people couldn't identify him).

Genndy Tartakovsky?

I'd go more out of my way to get his autograph than I would someone like Peter Mayhew or the guy who played Admiral Motti.

"cartoon movie", no not him of course but Dave Filoni.

post #54 of 97
Of course he is bitter. Most probably had/has super pushy parents who were pulling his strings, telling him he was great etc etc etc

That "behind the scenes" video shows an unhappy, angry boy in my opinion: and I think that's exactly what Lucas latched onto.

There is one part where Lloyd is upset over a take, says he thinks everyone is looking down on him because he is screwing up, and the crew are trying to cheer him up. If he was like that as a little boy, think what he must be going through now.

If he really wants to move on, he needs to stay the hell away from Fing "star Wars Weekends". He should sell his organs before being in an autograph booth.

He's acting in a film I'm working on that shoots next week, actually. Ha.

I'm making the call for Osment to become the next Jackie Earle Haley.

Ten years from now, he'll be cast in the adaptation of the 'comic that nobody thought would get made into a movie' Preacher.

He'll follow that success up with remaking the horror franchise... Saw... I dunno, there's not really that many popular horror franchise these days. Of course, he'll be playing Jigsaw.

The kid's obviously a mess. Rocking back-and-forth like a madman and bitter as hell.
If the video is an indication of what he's like every second of the day, then sure. But he's being filmed as he's asked questions about his embarrassing adolescent experiences, so I don't think it's all that damning that he'd come across as uncomfortable. He's in college and pursuing a new career - pretty presumptuous to call him a 'mess' at this point.

To make use of another franchise's terminology, even as a kid, this guy was a Hufflepuff and, at the time, he was asked to play someone who should've veered either Gryffindor or Slytherin. He never radiated the "special"ness he should have for the role, and he still just sort of comes off as a shmoe, if a shmoe with a rather understandable chip on his shoulder.

That's the meanest thing anyone's said in this thread. Hahaha.

I wonder what his student films are like, maybe he has a leg up on all his film school classmates. He probably has some valuable inside knowledge, since he did have a starring role on probably the biggest blockbuster of the past 10 years.
post #63 of 97
True story: A friend of mine from high school won a chance to hang out with him at the 500. She said he was a huge asshole who bragged about his 4-wheeler the whole time.

Dark Knight was bigger.

Also, I would sincerely hope he is unable to live a day of his life without people shouting him down as he moves about the world. I want to know when he goes shopping for a new flat screen, the sales person says "Yeah.. That TV is really "Wizzard", Right? " flips him off, and walks away.

I know I should blame Lucas, and believe me, I do.... But it's hard not to harbor an intense hatred of Jake Loyd too.

But that's exactly why one adjusts for inflation, because the dollar is worth less now.

Wait a minute, I'm trying to talk sense, I'm sorry. Moving on.
post #69 of 97
When I look at Jake Lloyd I can still see the little boy that was in Unhook The Stars with Gena Rowlands. When they announced he was cast in Phantom Menace I was one of the few people who remembered him from that movie. It actually played at my movie theatre. Anyway I don't have any ill will towards him at all. He was after all only 9 or 10 when he shot the part. Give this guy a break--he owes us nothing. And he looks fine in this video.

I think this is the nerdiest thing I've ever seen DaveB write.
post #73 of 97
Strange. I thought it was one of the more cold-hearted things he'd written. Nobody wants to be a Hufflepuff!!!! What did Lloyd do to DaveB that earned him such cruelty?

Came in to post the SAME thing with the SAME joke. Yippee!

post #78 of 97
He looks badass in his mugshot. Or like the guy who bags your groceries. Either/or.
post #79 of 97
Being only known for JINGLE ALL THE WAY and THE PHANTOM MENACE will do that do you.

He got to share scenes with one of the greatest actresses ever

He should die happy.

post #81 of 97

He should have tried spinning.  That's a good trick.

post #82 of 97
Am I the only one that feels incredibly sorry for him?

I've never seen that movie but it looks like like he plays a prepubescent, alcoholic mailman.
And, no, Mike's Pants, you're not the only one who feels sorry for him.
post #84 of 97
On the one hand, he's set for life, on the other, it is awful that he gets so much shit because of that film, especially by angry fanboys. Only few child actors have real talent like Kiernan Shipka, so I always think it's a low blow by anyone to knock him for something he did when he was only 8.

Is he set for life? I mean he goes to these conventions and charges for autographs right? I don't think a couple of movies and a tv show set you up for life unless Lucas is being VERY generous with likeness rights.  Culkin pulled that off but he was HUGE and his father was like the scariest manager alive.

Just an assumption, cause Star Wars is pretty massive.

Sure and George Lucas is set for life.

post #88 of 97

To be fair, Jake also has that sweet, sweet "Jingle All The Way" money.

post #89 of 97
I would be extremely surprised if Lloyd has any kind of substantial nest egg. He does conventions but I'd say David Prowse probably gets more attention.

For 'Yippee' alone Lucas shoukd give Lloyd ten million dollars, once a year, for the rest of his life.
post #90 of 97

C'mon, Lucas!  Who cares about affordable housing for the people of Marin County?

WHAT ABOUT LIL' ANNIE???

post #91 of 97

I searched around but couldn't find anything on this story so I'll go ahead and post it here. If this is already being discussed elsewhere then sorry.

 

Poor Jake Lloyd, things aren't looking up for the guy :

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/star-wars-actor-jake-lloyds-arrest-police-release/story?id=31966262

 

I hope he turns his life around, IMO, he's gotten way to much shit over the years that's completely unwarranted.  

post #92 of 97
His real name is Jake Broadbent?!

Talk about a prequel spoiler!
post #93 of 97

Is it me or is Jake Lloyd turning into a meaner-looking Leonardo DiCaprio? I mean facially, of course, rather than financially, talent-wise, or number of women bedded. 

post #94 of 97
I can see him as DiCaprio'$ little bro.
post #95 of 97

It gets worse.

 

http://www.tmz.com/2016/04/10/jake-lloyd-jail-mental-hospital/

 

I hope he gets the help he needs.  Plus: a shave.

post #96 of 97
Damn. Poor guy.

Seriously..
post #97 of 97

Jesus.  That's fucking rough.  The poor bastard.
