    Awww, a bit of Jake promotion :)

  • anon.

    My God, I could look at him for hours! He is just so amazing. Hottest man I’ve ever seen. He is just gorgeous.

  • fail

    That’s what this movie will do.

    They had to delay it for a year to replace a lot of Jake’s scenes with CGI.
    He just wasn’t believeable in the action sequences. He couldn’t move with the quickness or athleticism that the Prince is supposed to have.
    He bulked up for the part, but he was too bulky to be quick. They should have had a leaner actor play the Prince.
    CGI makes the action look fake, not realistic at all. I know that this is a fantasy movie, but you have to be grounded in believability when mixing live action with CGI. The previews have been almost laughable.

  • Perishna

    I would have went to see the Prince of Persia if they would have gotten an Indian American actor to play the Prince of Persia rather than a white male. But this is Hollywood so we know that this wouldn’t happen.

    I am not hating, it is just an observation. It would have been nice to see an American Indian actor play the Prince of Persia. But Hollywood is Hollywood,

  • Harold

    Fail it will fail because it is a horrible movie with the guy from Broke back mountain playing an Indian.

  • why jeans with a blazer?…

    …i hate that combo, and, dude could rock that lazy-buttoned-cardigan look if he’d lose those frumpy jeans…

  • Gordy

    So I guess he whacks off the prince?
    Gives the princehead?

    What a f-ggg

  • Whoever

    Looking Good! I love facial hair on him!

  • Jeff

    there is nothing wrong with being gay.

  • @4

    Uhmmm, why would using an American Indian (aka Native American) be better than seeing a white American in the role? BOTH are incorrect casting.
    A native American is no more Persian that Jake.
    But yes, Jake’s casting was ridiculous.

  • : (

    smelly armpits!

  • Cindy

    What a handsome man! Too handsome for me.

  • Eliza

    @ #10

    10, your ignorance is hilarious. #4 meant Indian-American as an in a citizen of the U.S. who has heritage from India (which is in Asia, by the way). Lol!!!

  • Chef Coa

    The awards business must be lucrative!

  • MMA

    Is that the Herman Munster look??

  • @13

    He said “American Indian”. That means Native American.
    If he really meant a US citizen with Eastern Indian heritage, he is just as wrong.
    Eastern Indian people are ALSO no more PERSIAN than Jake.

  • Whoever


    He’s hot, but not unttainable…. Reese Witherspoon isn’t the greatest beauty around

  • jordan

    He means an Indian male actor you cartoon, what are you white guy mad at him calling a spade a spade. The role should of went to an Indian Actor.

  • Jenna

    I like Jake, but i don’t like him in this role!
    Why are people saying they should have gotten an Indian?
    Ummmm…they should have got someone with darker features and a tanned complexion it would have been a lot more fitting!
    Not impressed! :|

  • Jenna

    @ Perishna:

    Persians are not Indian and Persians look more Italian or Spanish than we do South Asian!

  • idiots

    Indian (of any kind) does NOT equal PERSIAN.
    Dark skin does NOT equal PERSIAN.
    How can you people not understand this?

  • PR

    @Whoever: Huh?!
    What Reese Witherspoon has to do with anything?
    WitherBeard just used Jake for self promotion and marketing.

  • Ava

    Why does everyone complain about Jake not being Persian, but not a word about Taylor Lautner not being a Native American Indian.

  • Stone

    The only reason to be there is to promote.

  • JOE

    Persians do not look Italian or Spanish. Persians are Pakistani looking males because they are from that region. He would be an Indian Pakistani or Arab Male actor. Persia is in modern day Iraq so they would look like Iraqis.

    It doesn’t matter what he looked like, it would have been nice for Hollywood to script an Indian male to play a role for once rather than the perennial white male playing every role.

  • Jenna

    @ Ava: If they had chosen an actor who remotely look Persian then it would have been fine but he doesn’t remotely look the part! I thinkk Taylor does look native.

  • nativenyker
  • amp

    why does he always wear dad jeans?

  • ellie’

    Jake is always looking good and a great actor looking forward to the movie…

  • the_boyfriend

    those jeans are awful.

  • Noticias de famosos

    He is fantastic!

  • me me me

    i like him as an actor (donnie darko, jarhead..), but he’s not fitting for this role. baby face, big blue eyes… he looks kind of startled in the action scenes. i doubt i’ll watch this flick.

  • Kelly Luckstone

    I thought he was straight

  • jaye

    Still lol @ him in this role. Every time I see him in that get up, I practically fall off of my chair laughing. He’s not much better without the costume, but to each his own. I still haven’t been able to finish the Brokeback Mountain dvd. I’ve tried 2 or 3 times. Not because it was about gay men, but because it was so boring. I like Cgi for animation, but not so much for portraying real people. Look at the movie 300, I loved the way Leonidas looked in the movie, then I saw how Gerard Butler really looks and I was like WTH! Talk about a reality check. lol.

  • Cindy

    Why do all retards think that an actor must be gay in order to star in a gay movie?

  • Lisette

    Pretty sad that Jake always appeared to be so self-confident, amusing and charming on stage seems to have lost that. After 3 years of bearding he now appears to be nervous, ill at ease and trying to hard to be cool on stage. Jake went from Academy Award nominated actor to Mr. Witherspoon, the perfect gay escort for dinner/coffee run/exercise class. And every additional look at Prince of Persia convinces me more that not only does the movie look like a fail, but Jake totally wrong for the part of the He-Man Macho Prince. The movie looks like a total campfest. He bearded with that nasty blonde midget so he could land ridiculous movies like that?

  • slambang

    JAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God, he’s so gorgeous. I can’t wait to see this movie!!!

  • athena

    Jake looks great. Many people are against him being the Prince….he’s a great actor and I hope he surprises all you naysayers CGI and all.

  • to joe

    It doesn’t matter what he looked like, it would have been nice for Hollywood to script an Indian male to play a role for once rather than the perennial white male playing every role.

    just so you understand, i respect your opinion on this. but for my part i really don’t care. all i care about is whether or not i’m going to have a good time watching it. this has not exactly been the best of years economically for me; i lost some money in the stock market. so you’ll understand when i say this; i want to be entertained not lectured.

  • jolentini
  • lakers fan in boston

    that movie actually looks pretty good
    ill probably watch it
    i havent seen one of jakey poo’s movie since the 1 he made about being in the cia or something and about terrorists
    it was pretty good movie tho

  • Liverwurst


  • cinderela

    Disney couldn´t choose best actor to play PoP. Jake is perfect! He was born already Prince. Persia, Wales, whatever… I am looking foward to see this movie. Even more I love him.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    poor guy. this movie will bomb and it’ll put an end to any chances of him becoming a real leading man.

  • betty

    jake looks like a poor man’s orlando bloom. no one can do the heart throbby action hero better than orlando. can’t wait to see him in pirates 4! wish he would grow his hair long again. i prefer it to his short hair and i prefer jake with his short hair. why do actors always try to be something they aren’t? they should just be themselves.

  • Joeyer

    Why do all retards think that an actor must be gay in order to star in a gay movie?,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Because no straight man will kiss another man or get into bed with another man. You have to have gay tendencies to even want to kiss another man. This is the truest thing I can tell you, it is even against the Bible to do it which gives more validation against it.

    The guy is gay because he kissed another man passionately on the lips, no real man would do that.

  • Joee

    want to be entertained not lectured.,,,,I am not lecturing anyone i am stating an opinion. I go to see a movie to be entertained as well but see that inaccuracies that Hollywood loves to portray. I don’t mind Jake playing this role, I could actually care less about it, what I am saying is that there the entertainment is skewed toward certain types of actors.

    Its an opinion and you dont have to like it, but it is not far from accurate.,

  • double standards

    The man is handsome and I’ll give the movie a chance, you never know once you see it all it could be good.

    Don’t really think wether or not he’s gay should be an issue, why does that matter for a role? If it were two girls kissing no one would make a big deal about it.

  • Aitch

    OK I love him!! He will be great in this movie, can’t wait.

  • me

    Persia is modern Iran and Iraq.Please,someone should check your knowledge.Do it yourself before writing dull comments.
