As wonderful as the past weeks have been, it's good to see Jake Gyllenhaal out of the Prince of Persia promotional uniform and back wandering the streets of LA for beverages and the odd bellhop job.
What would a post be without videos? Among today's selections, Jake reveals that PoP is actually a true story:
All about the accent - and Sir Ben thinks Jake should play 007:
This was posted in the replies, but in case you missed it - Jake notices an interviewer's dental decoration:

It's been hectic these last days, so we'll go with a casual post today, too. Unless the day brings more goodies!
See - just had to include this. A real rave for PoP and for Jake from the Times of London:
As for Gyllenhaal, well he deserves a whole paragraph to himself. Can this be the same sensitive fellow who got off his high horse in Brokeback Mountain? He has acquired an entirely new body with more six-packs than a Glaswegian carry-out, and pecs perfectly designed for the inevitable kids’ pop-up book of the film. He exudes a sweet innocence while giving a tremendous physical performance. Newell says that Gyllenhaal did most of his own stunts and trained obsessively at 5.30am before the sun roasted the set in Morocco. His leaps from rooftop to rooftop and pillar to post are CGI-aided, but nonetheless courageous.
