Totally agree, Jake is overrated. Mark is a fantastic actor with lots of insight.

Mark definitly seems to have his stuff together. I've always really liked his acting. Definitely underrated this one. But I like Jake too, even if he does come across as Mr. Whiney because, frankly, he choses great movies.

By some accounts I've heard, Ruffalo's performance blows Jake's off the screen. Guess we'll have to wait on that one to see if it's true.I just hope I don't fall asleep during three hours of picture.

Not everyone works together harmoniously. We all know that from our own work lives. It's the same in show business. Everyone operates their way, and some people work together really well and some don't.

Here are Mr. Gyllenhaal's comments (in full context) in the NY Times article: For Jake Gyllenhaal, who stars in the movie as Mr. Graysmith, Mr. Fincher’s attentiveness was a mixed blessing. Mr. Gyllenhaal said he came from a collaborative filmmaking family: “We share ideas, and we incorporate those ideas.” He added: “David knows what he wants, and he’s very clear about what he wants, and he’s very, very, very smart. But sometimes we’d do a lot of takes, and he’d turn, and he would say, because he had a computer there” — the movie was shot digitally — “ ‘Delete the last 10 takes.’ And as an actor that’s very hard to hear.” Mr. Gyllenhaal, 26, partly blamed culture shock; he’d just finished “Jarhead” for Sam Mendes, who gave him a much freer rein. Mr. Gyllenhaal stressed that he admired and liked Mr. Fincher personally. And he noted that other members of the “Zodiac” cast had far more experience, adding: “I wish I could’ve had the maturity to be like: ‘I know what he wants. He wants the best out of me.’ ” That said, Mr. Gyllenhaal spoke candidly about his frustration with Mr. Fincher’s degree of control over his performance. “What’s so wonderful about movies is, you get your shot,” he said. “They even call it a shot. The stakes are high. You get your chance to prove what you can do. You get a take, 5 takes, 10 takes. Some places, 90 takes. But there is a stopping point. There’s a point at which you go, ‘That’s what we have to work with.’ But we would reshoot things. So there came a point where I would say, well, what do I do? Where’s the risk?” It is clear that this is a well-elucidated opinion on how an actor should be able to express himself within the director's constraints, and not something dealing with the subject of whether actors get paid well or not. Here are RDJ's and Mr. Ruffalo's comments in the same article: Robert Downey Jr., impeccably cast as a crime reporter driven to drink, drugs and dissolution, called Mr. Fincher a disciplinarian and agreed that, as is often said, “he’s always the smartest guy in the room.” But Mr. Downey put this in perspective. “Sometimes it’s really hard because it might not feel collaborative, but ultimately filmmaking is a director’s medium,” he said. “I just decided, aside from several times I wanted to garrote him, that I was going to give him what he wanted. I think I’m a perfect person to work for him, because I understand gulags.” Mr. Ruffalo too survived some 70-take shots. “The way I see it is, you enter into someone else’s world as an actor,” he said. “You can put your expectations aside and have an experience that’s new and pushes and changes you, or hold onto what you think it should be and have a stubborn, immovable journey that’s filled with disappointment and anger.” He said Mr. Fincher was equally demanding of everyone — executives, actors, himself. “He knows he’s taking a stab at eternity,” Mr. Ruffalo said. “He knows that this will outlive him. And he’s not going to settle for anything other than satisfaction, deep satisfaction. Somewhere along the line he said, ‘I will not settle for less.’ ” Their opinions as expressed in the NY Times article are quite reasonable. Mr. Ruffalo should have left it at that. Both he and Mr. Gyllenhaal have the right to express their own opinions without being misrepresented or misunderstood. From the above, it seems obvious that Mr. Gyllenhaal's comments were never meant to cast mindless asperities on Mr. Fincher's method. Mr. Ruffalo would be so wise as to follow suit in the matter of Mr. Gyllenhaal's comments. Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/18/movies/18halb.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

Wow...as much as I love Jake this Mark guy seems pretty realistic and down-to-earth. He even admitted actors get paid way too much...when everyone else in Hollywood thinks they should get paid more. I like him...I still love Jake but this Mark guy is the truth.
