First look: Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Remember when we found out the star of the Prince of Persia film would be Jake Gyllenhaal? Many fans were skeptical, not sure how the star of Donnie Darko would hold up as the hero of the games. The Just Jared blog managed to get some pictures of Jake in costume on the set filming the movie… And I’ll let the picture speak for itself.

It’s quite obvious Jake has done some bulking up for the role, but what do you guys think? Personally, I think it looks like he’s getting ready to play a caveman who finds an evil wig which then attaches itself to his head, transports him to modern times, and somehow controls his body so that he’s able to get an attractive blond girlfriend in Modern America (all while being chased by a crazy doctor who’s determined to prove he’s of caveman descent), but I may be wrong. Either way, it’s not a stretch to say he certainly doesn’t look Persian.

Then again, maybe his performance will be enough to make me forget how dissimilar he looks from the character he’s supposed to be playing. Only (the sands of) time will tell.
