Posted on

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

Have a cup of coffee and do the NY Times KenKen and crossword puzzle.

What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

Interesting. “You know it’s so interesting…” No it’s not! It might be funny or strange or sad but it’s probably not “interesting!"

What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

The phone number for Vinnie’s Pizza. And if they have pineapple.

Who is the last person that called or texted you?

My best friend Paul.

What's the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

A photo of the plains just before dusk from when my then girlfriend and I drove from NY to LA for the first time. She took the photo and it’s simple and beautiful.

What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

I was in a restaurant and "It Makes No Difference" by The Band came on. I love The Band and I love that song in particular. I started quietly singing along but by the time it got to my favorite part I was overcome with emotion and was really going for it. I was way into the song before I realized how loud I had gotten and immediately stopped singing and stared at my menu.

What is your TV guilty pleasure?

I have seen every episode of Law and Order: SVU. I watch Project Runway and become emotionally invested in each person.

What's the first CD you bought?

TLC - "Crazy Sexy Cool." I remember thinking, “I bet this is what sex sounds like.” I was in 6th grade.

And what music are you currently listening to?

Waterfalls. Just kidding. Levon Helm’s album "Electric Dirt."

What is the one food you cannot resist?


What movie makes you laugh the most?

Lately it’s been Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. But Ghostbusters is my true love.

What toppings do you like on your pizza?

Pepperoni or Pineapple.

What drives you absolutely crazy?

Lack of clarity in communication.

What was your first online screen name?

Oh man I have no idea. Probably something really timeless like StoneTemplePilot1998.

What’s the last thing you copied & pasted on your phone?

I recently saved a ton of photos of RFK from the internet.

What’s your favorite curse word?



What's your favorite emoji?

The Volcano. The other emojis look like doodles. That volcano looks like it’s out of NatGeo.

Pick one: Kittens or puppies?


New York or Los Angeles?

New York.

Twitter or Instagram?


Bacon or Nutella?


Britney or Christina?


Coffee or tea?



Gotta go OG: NKOTB

2am or 2pm?


Beyonce or Rihanna?


Netflix and chill or just Netflix?

...and chiiiilll.

Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

Lizzie McGuire, for sure.

And finally: tell us a secret.

I don’t know who either of those last people are.

Catch Jake in his latest movie, Love the Coopers, in theaters now, and Carol, out November 20.
