If His Acting Career Doesn't Work Out, Jake Would Make a Great K-Mart Flyer Model

I have no idea if Prince of Persia: Sands of Time will, ultimately, be the first commercial and critical success for a video-game adaptation (it’s being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, so I wouldn’t count on it), but I’ll tell you one thing, based purely on these new posters for the movie, premiered on Empire:

That Jake Gyllenhaal sure is a pretty man. Persian? I dunno about that. A fitting action star? I’m skeptical. But pretty he is. In fact, if I weren’t already familiar with the movie, I’d think it were a fashion ad for super retro vests or a perfume that smells like the desert. Who knew Persian princess used so much mousse?


The movie, like the video game, is about a prince who, along with a “mysterious” princess, is charged with protecting an ancient dagger that can reverse time. Or something. Gemma Arterton plays the princess. And while she’s an attractive woman, I’m not sure she can really compete with Jake in terms of the pretty.
