Jake recently shared to BBC Radio what he would be if he wasn’t an actor.

“If I wasn’t acting I’d be a cook, or working on the line in a kitchen, which is actually a dream of mine, so I’d be doing that,” Jake said. “I don’t have anything I like to cook especially but I like to go down to the farmers’ market and then cook with what’s in season. I like to go back to the old school, Beastie Boys style with my cooking. It’s all about the fresh produce!”

    Jake is a GREAT ACTOR, no doubt!
    And he can cook. And he looks a bit like a pirat!
    So, if he can cook well and looks like a pirat, he has deserved the nickname “Captain Cook”, what else?
