Jake Gyllenhaal to Play Footballer Joe Namath

Jake Gyllenhaal shared the workout regime he kept for his upcoming actioner, Persia of Persia: Sands of Time.

“It was intense,” the 29-year-old actor told Extra. “What I did was ride a camel in L.A. and rode it around for15 hours a day, and I’d eat twigs and berries and any kind of fibrous material, and drink water from the sewers. With that, [I got into shape] very quickly (laughs).”

Jake is also trying to play football star Joe Namath in an upcoming movie.

“I would love to play Joe Namath,” Jake admitted. “I’ve been working on it for a long time, trying to develop that story. We got to get it right, got to get the extraordinary story perfect if we’re going to do it. But it would be a dream to play him.”

As for being single, Jake says, “Would it be strange if I said no, I’m not looking? Yes, I’m looking. I have two eyes.”

Prince of Persia opens everywhere on May 28.
