A horse is a horse of course of course

Except when Jake Gyllenhaal is astride. Then it becomes a thing of beauty.

Updated with the untagged pics from IHJ and some new shots. Thanks, Stephanie!

I think I'm begining to dig the hair, although maybe needs to be a bit longer round the sides - possible stray into mullett territory alert!

Jake looks like he's having a complete hoot.

Those horses are beautiful.

Just amazing - thank you, thank you! We really have to wait until next summer, sigh. :)

No, no. No mullet. That's hat-head. Yes hat-head. Please let it be hat-head.

agent_krycek said...

Sorry, yes it's obviousy hat head.

Looking at the photos close up (for purely scientific reasons of course ;) ) - I don't think he's had extensions, at least not yet - the Gyllenhair has always grown quickly and prolifically - he certainly looks happy and like he's having a complete hoot. Also looks very comfortable on the horse, the BBM experience, and maybe some horse riding on a certain little ranch, seem to have paid off.

He looks af if he's having so much fun. I think Jake and Reese are enjoying their time together. He looks so fine.

agent_krycek said...

The bloke in the first picture, in the red t shirt with sword on the brown horse looks really familiar, just can't quite place his face. I keep thinking Navin Chowdhry (Teachers) but I think I'm wrong.

I just love Pic 11 - the horse almost looking like he's going to rear up with a sword-wielding Prince on his/her back. How am I supposed to get any work done now? ;)

Narcissa said...

Love the last two without the helmet and shades. He looks so fiiiiiine.

And happy.

awesome series of photos! thanks so much for posting. I know nothing about videos games nor all this PoP stuff, but if it's a horse riding and sword-wielding hero it's got my attention!

He does look likes he's having a blast and enjoying himself in that last pic, doesn't he? Glad to see it. It sounds like it would be a fun movie to make. :)

Gemma looks beautiful on horseback too - I like the boots she's wearing. I can't believe we've got such a long wait for PoP. ;)

Erin said...

That blue shirt looks too tight, like his chest and arms will rip it

I need to fan myself...

and those thighs over the horse


my word...........

Anonymous said...

I can't stand it - some of these pics enbiggened are just amazing - the gritted teeth and facial expressions - you can just see and feel the movement and action. :)

UltraViolet said...

Gemma is in the pictures?? ;)

Anonymous said...

In the next to last pic, maybe not? She's got on half chaps or something, sorry I don't know my English equestrian gear very well. Is it her or an instructor? I thought it looked like Gemma's face. :)

UltraViolet said...

I was kidding, anon. Meaning that I didn't see anyone other than Jake. I think that is Gemma, and she is lovely.

chica said...

Gemma who?? Only kidding. These pictures are very distracting, in a good way!

Anonymous said...

Oh, I see what you mean - it took me a long time to notice her as well. ;)

sass said...

Squee, TY. TY. TY.
Da*n this is a fine way to enjoy lunch....gggorgeous handsome delicious pics of Jake...His body gets better as he gets older...
*swoon*

sass said...

Those last two pics with his helmet off. O.M.G! That man is so finne....

Erin said...

I didn't expect the prince would have a full beard and chest hair

very interesting

FluorescentLamp said...

he's not actually filming yet, Erin. I'm sure he's just holding onto his "Jakeness" for as long as he can.

"I didn't expect the prince would have a full beard and chest hair

I'd actually prefer this hairy version. ;)

Erin said...

Oh ok, I didn't realize more changes where to be made as far as his looks

Maybe he will shape the beard into a goatee or sideburns, or some shape

Right now I guess he is practicing the moves and actions before filming

Bette said...

Finally pics of Jake's hair! Yes. That's all I care about. He's making such great faces in these shots though, just really getting in to it. And the horses are absolutely lovely.

shondra said...

Erin said...

ignore the snarky crap on this site :(

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know what breed the horses are? Arabian? Sigh. Love the flowing manes in the pics - on both horse and rider. ;) They'll probably refine hair and beard, but in these initial pics, it sure does look good on him! Gives him a wildness.

shondra said...

That link was already posted on the previous link erin.

Erin said...

I just liked the way his arms were flexed in that picture

UltraViolet said...

A little Gemma and Jake, side by side view. They look good!

Gemma Arterton and Jake Gyllenhaal enjoyed horsing around as they polished their riding skills for a new movie.

The Bond girl looked elegant in black as she rehearsed for her role as Tamina in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Gemma, 22, also plays MI6 operative-Agent Fields in the forthcoming Bond movie Quantum of Solace.

It looks as if someone is riding on that horse with Jake, doesn't it?

Anonymous said...

Wow, they sure do look good. :)

sheba baby said...

Yeah there is someone anon, you can see her more in the IHJ sets, I think she maybe Gemma's stunt double or maybe just a trainer.

Damn, lucky girl, lucky Reese and lucky horse!!

UltraViolet said...

Very lucky woman! Except she's not holding onto him. Very stupid lucky woman.

Have you seen the video here?

sass said...

Afternoon babblers,
Jake is tall and so athletic; I've read that Broadway Joe thought that he would be perfect to play him, which is why he chose him for his Biopic.
Jake should have a blast making such a physical movie.
Off to swoon over more pics...TY again...Jake riding horses is way to hot for me to take in with one visit so I must return for more and more POP Jake.
xoxoxo
back later:)
