What do you get when you cross...
According to Jake Gyllenhaal, this:
The folks at Gemma Arterton Online have scans of a Prince of Persia preview from the French magazine Studio Ciné Live. Their 20010 preview issue highlights three of the PoP principals: Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton.
Jake is described as an actor at the top of his game. And Jake describes the Prince:
"Dastan est un mélange de Rafael Nadal, de Mick Jagger et de Denis la Malice."
Someone really needs to do a morph of those three and Jake!
More on Dastan: "Il accumule les bévues, il pense qu'il a toujours raison, il est sarcastique, pince-sans-rire et surtout tres insolent."
Rough translation: "He makes mistakes but always thinks he's right. He's sarcastic, deadpan and always very arrogant."
I love that description! I think Jake then goes on to talk about how this is what he wanted to do as a kid, and also about all the training he had to do.
Paging Lemon or other French-speaking GBers. I can get the gist of most of it, but I don't want to try a real translation! not that we'd expect anyone to do that, either. But if you see something amusing or noteworthy, let us know.
I think Gemma describes a scene where Dastan warns her not to cut herself, and she did just that.
From Jake's newest movies to one of his first, A Dangerous Woman. This clip showed up on youtube, and I don't think I've ever seen it before. Jake's definitely in young punk mode!
There's a quick snippet of Jake at that Maui Film Festival at the end.
If you can stand the cacophony and the inanity, there's a very brief snippet of a very smiley Jake attending the CAA pre-Golden Globes party:
Peter and Maggie are listed, as well, but I couldn't take watching the whole video! Jake appears about two minutes in:
Yup, wearing The Jacket again :)
