Jake Gyllenhaal: Prince of Persia Buff

Jake Gyllenhaal: Prince of Persia Buff

A shirtless Jake Gyllenhaal shows off his buff body in these new stills from the upcoming fantasy adventure, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.

“I over-prepared myself because I never knew how much they were going to ask me to do, so I just made sure I’d be hopefully able to do anything,” Jake has said of his new physique. “I guess I’ve gotten buff. There’s a lot acrobatics in the movie — a lot of running up walls, and jumping on things and Parkour, so it requires muscularity, but it requires a lot of aerobic ability too.”

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time opens in 2010.

UPDATE: Apologies, images removed!

    That’s exactly the point. When Johnny Depp played Jack Sparrow in POTC, he played it for fun. It was almost as if he was giving us a sly wink and we were in on the joke. We knew from the opening scenes that Johnny, Orly, and Keira were in a fun, fantasy movie. It was campy. If jake plays this for fun, and special effects and thrills, he’ll be OK, but if he is “over prepared” and serious, he will flop and look like an ass. Which he already does because I really, really hate that hair. And his eyes look too bulgey. I have seen other pictures of him, bcz I am Reese’s fan and I like them together, but in other pictures, he looks a lot better. It’s the hair and the bulge eyes.

    Can I ask why the images were removed? I hope it’s not cause people were bitching about his hair or whatev, cause really, who cares what THEY think?

    Since when did this turn in to ‘Princess of Persia’?

    Nice bangs, Jakey!

    You can still see the photos on other internet sites. And they are NOT GOOD. His boobs are too feminine, and he poses with hands on hips in a kinda swishy way. He needs to shave his body and his hair looks greasy and dirty. And he is too pale. Commentators say the movie will bomb. Jakey needs another bomb like a hole in the head.

    Odd I could not post a link to the sites that still have the pictures up. Wouldn’t register. You have to google for them.

    The photos are on the Huffington Post blogsite.

    He dosnt have the face for long hair. Hes cutter with shorter hair.

    I agree, his face is too long for long hair. He ends up looking like a Basset Hound.

    he looks more gay in those pictures than in BBM.

    I saw the pics on ONTD, last night, and just about busted a gut laughing.
    He looks ridiculous!
    Bruckheimer was going for box-office appeal, and didn’t give a damn about authenticity. That would have been OK if he had been able to talk Orlando into playing the part. He offered him a ton of money, but Orlando didn’t want to do another fantasy trilogy with a sword. Not only is Orlando naturally athletic, and graceful enough for parkour (not to mention fit and gorgeous with long hair), there isn’t another young actor out there who can believably wield a sword like he does, so Jerry was up s**t creek. He chose Jake to try to appeal to the younger theater goers, and has regretted his decision ever since. They delayed the movie for over a year to try to fix Jake’s clumsiness with CGI.
    I loved the game, and got excited when I heard that Orlando was playing the part, but I will not be seeing this one in the theaters. Think about it….when a studio ‘leaks’ production stills, they send out pictures that they think will bring interest to the film, and these were the best they had??? They have been laughed at all over the web. This movie is in trouble already. Big trouble. And Bruckheimer knows it. Maybe he should have offered Orlando 80 million, instead of 40.

    Ana: He didn’t look gay at all in Brokeback, nor did Heath. That was what made the picture so great. Most people don’t want to watch openly gay men for long or for more than passing laughs on the screen.
    I would not say he looks exactly gay. He just looks…well…unappetizing…to either women or gays. Neither women nor gays like body hair. He should have been shaved. Then after that, his hair should have been done so that it doesn’t look ratty and greasy and dirty, as it does. His chest is not good either. His “breasts” are too feminine looking. Bad look all around.

    Shani Says:

    God, doesn’t he look gay there? and the long hair doesn’t do anything for him, this guy’s face is too long, that hair doesn’t suit his face at all. Body is good.

    Alison Says:

    I like jake and some of his movies, but sorry, he looks ridiculous here, very odd look, it’s his face, the hair, the pose, I don’t know but he doesn’t look the part.

    sad Says:

    I found it rather telling that one of the paps filming Orlando on the set of Sympathy for Delicious yelled out “Prince of Per-siaaaa” as he walked by. With long dark hair, buff chest and eyeliner, he sure looked the part. And if being dressed as a rock star made him look THAT close to the images from the game, can you imagine how good he would look if he was TRYING to look like the Prince?
    Even a pap could see it, for crying out loud.

    Orlando Bloom in the part ????????

    well euh NO

    isaure Says:

    The pics are bad ! the guy is hot but it’s cheesy and look like the last novel of Daniel Steel’s promotion!

    Anyway, Jake wastes his time in this kind of movie , the guy is talented and should remain in indie circle!

    At last to be fair, anyone would be ridiculous in such role, fantasy movie is not taken seriously, too risky!

    @91 Says:

    Absolutely.
    Remember, the buff, gorgeous guy from Kingdom of Heaven is the same guy that played the graceful, athletic Legolas. That would have been one killer combination. Not a joke like Jake.

    Orlando Blum was hightly ridiculous inTroy like Pitt!
    And no he is not a credible actor either!

    @94 Says:

    I agree with the other poster. Orlando would have been MUCH better in this part that lame, white-bread Jake.
    MUCH better.
    Why have they delayed the movie for a year if they aren’t worried about it? They must be trying to compensate for something.
    And since you disagree about Orlando, name one other young actor who can wear a costume and brandish a sword without looking like they are going to a costume party. We have seen the pics of Jake, so we KNOW it sure isn’t HIM. Name one. Bruckheimer offered Orlando 40 million for the trilogy. He must have thought that he was the best choice out there. And Bruckheimr is many things, but stupid isn’t one of them.

    @96 Says:

    Hahahahah offered 40m right Bloom can’t get any work.

  23. 98
    @97 Says:

    No, #96 is right.
    He was offered 40 million for the trilogy.

  24. 99
    Hortensia Says:

    Well if Orlando turned down 40 million, what did Bruck pay Jakey? Did he come cheap? I do suspect La Wither pushed him into it. Prolly said “time for you to make some real money Jakey, the way I do; if you want my respect you’ll have to get rich quick.”

    Jake was second choice. He must be used to it. After Reese’s last interview clearly she would rather have stayed with Ryan but he wouldn’t stay with her. Orlando would have been perfect for this role too. Poor Jakey!!
