    Normally, I think Jake Gyllenhall is adorable in a cute, geeky kinda way.

    But this picture does absolutely nothing for me. It's really not flattering at all.icon_neutral.gif

    Thats nothing new for him.

    Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is an upcoming film based on the 2003 video game of the same name. The film is directed by Mike Newell and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, and Alfred Molina. Filming is taking place in the United Kingdom and Morocco. Prince of Persia is scheduled to be released on May 28, 2010.

    Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a 6th century prince of Persia who teams up with Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) to rescue the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that controls time, from the hands of the villainous nobleman, Nizam (Ben Kingsley).

    In March 2004, the production company Jerry Bruckheimer Films sought to acquire feature film rights to the 2003 video game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with the film to be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Under John August as executive producer, Jordan Mechner was hired to write the script. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer's Pirates of the Caribbean film trilogy served as a touchstone in how a theme park ride was converted into a film franchise. According to Mechner, "Rather than do a straight beat-for-beat adaptation of the new videogame, we're taking some cool elements from the game and using them to craft a new story." In February 2006, Disney hired screenwriter Jeffrey Nachmanoff to write a new script for Prince of Persia.

    Early in 2007, Disney announced Prince of Persia as one of its tentpole films and by June had scheduled a release date for July 10, 2009 before having a final script or any actors attached. By November 2007, Disney entered negotiations with Mike Newell to direct the film based on a script by Mechner and Nachmanoff, though the studio held off production until labor issues were resolved. Mechner, in writing the script, re-conceived the storyline to shift the perspective from the interactive one experienced by video gamers to the non-interactive experience by film audiences. The screenwriter left out elements of the Prince of Persia video games Warrior Within and The Two Thrones and did not anticipate including these elements in the film's possible sequels.

    Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, a sixth-century Persian prince. "Dastan" is the Persian word for "trickster", which is why Jordan Mechner chose the name for the character, who is nameless in the games.[
    Gemma Arterton as Tamina, a feisty and exotic princess.
    Ben Kingsley as Nizam, King Shahrman's brother who plans to kill the ruler and blame the murder on Prince Dastan.
    Alfred Molina as Sheik Amar, a mentor to Prince Dastan.

    In March 2008, Newell selected Morocco as a shooting location for Prince of Persia and also planned to film in Pinewood Studios. Production was scheduled to begin in mid-June 2008.[7] By May 2008, actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton were cast into the lead roles. With a new script by Mechner, Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard, and Boaz Yakin, filming began in July 2008 in Morocco as well as London.[8] In the same month, the film's release date was postponed to May 28, 2010 with the studio seeking enough time for the post-production process in designing the film's special effects. Variety also ascribed the postponement to avoiding the potential 2008 Screen Actors Guild strike so the studio could ensure that the film leads to a "mega-franchise" similar to its successful Pirates of the Caribbean series.[9]

    yeah... exactly...

    Evidently there are no attractive Iranians in the world who could play a person of Persian heritage.

    I wonder what he was doing to beef up. If anyone was smart they'd release training programs used on celebs and sell that shit for profit.

    Ew... a Prince of Persia movie? The games were pretty good, but the story in the games all sucked. They'd better have him doing some crazy acrobatic shit at least!

    First Dragonball, now this. Who approves funding to these things?

    A lot of times what celebs to to beef up wouldn't be applicable to "our" lives... not all of us are celebs... yet.

    Often times they get paid to "train" for 4-6 hours a day for certain periods of time before films go into pre-production, so it actually becomes part of their jobs.

    There have been shows on celeb fitness... there was even one devoted to the Marvel Comics movies "X-Men", "Daredevil", and "Elektra", and celeb trainers like Gunnar Peterson (who i've met and is the DEAL) have discussed tips and techniques in various magazines... as has Jennifer Garner and her trainer, Hugh Jackman (When he was training for the 4x he played Wolverine), Jennifer Lopez (when training for "Enough") etc etc etc

    You can do google searches that will often come up with some decent results... that's who i was able to find Ryan Reynolds training and diet from when he played Hannible King in "Blade: Trinity". Another way is way is to watch DVD special features, like those of Elektra, Kill Bill, and Blade Trinity to learn a few tricks.

    Often a production company will assign a personal "trainer to the stars" to work for hours a day with an actor preparing for a role. There's little that would be applicable to the average person, as the training is entirely one-on-one and very personalized to that individual and his/her movie role, from the equipment and routines, to the diet.

    BTW, it isn't always about attaining the ideal buff body, either. Some roles call for an unattractive weight gain, or the unbalanced development of only certain features of the body. Afterwards a personal trainer may help with a post-production return to a more normal appearance.

    Holy Cow!
    I scrolled half way down this Forum, thinking, "Okay Jake is starting, but who's the guy in the pic?" icon_redface.gif

    JUST DAMN! Jake has really metamorphiszed since his cute geek role in 'October Sky.'

    Obviously not the cute guy of old, but definitely HOT! The more so that it appears that he's done it the natural, balanced way. Nothing is out of proportion. I bet he doesn't have chicken legs like some many of the muscleheads at my gym.
