After Getting A Sneak Peek Of 'Prince Of Persia', I Can't Wait To See It (And Not Just For Jake G's Hot Body, Either)!

Mon, April 5, 2010 1:31pm EST by 10 Comments

After checking out the Prince of Persia at WonderCon over the weekend, I have to wonder whether you’ll be watching it for the action, or just to get a glimpse of Jake’s six-pack!

Six pack. Body. Yum. These were the quite unexpected words I heard being bandied about at WonderCon, San Francisco’s comic book and science fiction festival over the weekend. They were, of course, in reference to Jake Gyllenhaal’s new film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. And I’ve got to say: Reese Witherspoon, you are some kind of fool for giving this boy up!

Myself, along with the Darth Vader and Pokemon-loving fanboys and gamers of WonderCon, waited impatiently for Jake, 29, director Mike Newell and super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer to take the stage for a Persia panel at San Fran’s Moscone Center South April 3. When Jake finally arrived, the screaming was deafening. Seriously, my ears are still ringing two days later! The Brokeback Mountain star just waved at his audience shyly, looking shocked that so many people would show up just to see him.

After we all calmed down and started breathing again, we were treated to a sneak peek of the film – which looks amazing (and NOT just because of Jake’s rippling muscles and killer abs, thank you very much). After the clip aired, Jake, dressed in a basic black pullover sweater and dark-wash designer denim, confided that he did most of his own stunts, and had to spend a lot of time in the gym, especially for his heavy-duty gymnastics training. He said, “Yeah, I look pretty cool doing that.”

I agree, Jake…All of the training really paid off – and your film looks just as good as you do! I can’t wait until the film premieres on May 28!

Ok, Annika, loved your article, but I gotta tell you: BACK OFF MY BOY.
Don’t even act like you want those muscles; go hang out with Sandra B while I introduce my tongue to Jake’s bod.

This movie looks just ok. I love Prince of Persia, the video game, and I love Jake (DONNIE DARKO FOREVER!) but I was at WonderCon, and the preview sort of sucked.
