Jakey G buff daddy

11.14.2008

Jake Gyllenhaal, PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME "Entertainment Tonight" recently paid a visit to the set of PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME, the currently filming feature adaptation of the popular video game franchise, and what they learned, first and foremost, is that Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the titular character, is a chiseled mancake that women will want to devour come May 28th, 2010. They also learned that, at least according to Jakey G, this is the most massivest production in the history of cinema. Like huge. Like Michael Bay times a milion. Which is expected, really, considering this is a Jerry Bruckheimer produced project and one thing The Brucks does not do is small. He does hot ass babes, beefy mancake and huge. Find out what else ET learned on set over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: The original game was released on November 6, 2003.

The original game was released in, like, the early 90s. But whatever.

P.S. I like Donnie Darko, but I hate Jerry Bruckheimer.

As far as all this "juicing" talk goes, I'm pretty much going to repeat what Jaybro7 already stated, and I can speak on personal experience. I was a casual weight lifter until my junior year of high school when I really got into it. I was at the gym six days a week from anywhere between 1 and 3 hours working out. I also guzzled protein shakes like crazy and eventually started consuming five meals a day. Within just a couple of months I was pretty ripped. So it is possible to put on some
As far as all this "juicing" talk goes, I'm pretty much going to repeat what Jaybro7 already stated, and I can speak on personal experience. I was a casual weight lifter until my junior year of high school when I really got into it. I was at the gym six days a week from anywhere between 1 and 3 hours working out. I also guzzled protein shakes like crazy and eventually started consuming five meals a day. Within just a couple of months I was pretty ripped. So it is possible to put on some impressive muscle in a short period of time without going the way of the 'roids.

In regards to Jakey G. not being Persian, I kinda have to agree with Jaybro again. To me though, it's not really a matter of whether the actor is the same ethnicity of the character (but I think it would be beneficial just for accuracy sake) but whether they're a good enough actor for the part. I always felt that Tom Wisdom (of 300, you can imdb him) would have been perfect as the Prince. He looks more like the video game character than Jake G. and, at least in 300, had the right physique for the Prince, who isn't buff like Jake in that picture, but more lean. Which makes sense considering all the acrobatics and gravity defying moves he pulls off in the game.

Personally, I feel that Jake's casting is because he's a more recognizable actor who could draw an audience. As apposed to, if for instance I had a say in casting, Tom Wisdom would. But, I always try to keep an open mind, so we'll see how I feel when some footage of this thing is released.

WHOA!

I've never seen Jake buff! This could definitely be worth a look.

As for him not being Persian, I defer to Jaybro on that.

So, let me get this straight, it's OK for foreigners to play Americans and put on an american accent, but its not okay for an American to play a foreigner and put on an accent?

Angelina Jolie played a French woman of Afro-Cuban and Dutch ancestry in A Mighty Heart and no one complained about that once the movie came out. Her performance got rave reviews, as did the movie itself.

Also, go ahead and compare the prince's facial structure and overall look to the way Jake looks in costume for

Also, go ahead and compare the prince's facial structure and overall look to the way Jake looks in costume for the Prince. It's almost exact. So what if he isn't persian? It's called ACTING for a reason.

So far, his look is spot on to the Prince. Now, if the movie comes out and he absolutely sucks, acting wise, then fine, I stand corrected, but so far, physically, he looks the part.

As for him "juicing" to get bigger, I agree with the others that it's a shame that some of you jump to conclusions, wether you THINK you know what you're talking about or not.

And I don't care what anyone says, Bale is a great example. He lost tons of weight for the machinest and then a year later gained tons of weight back to play The Dark Knight. In fact, he gained TOO MUCH and his suit wouldn't even fit, so then, he had to go and lose weight.

It's very possible to gain that much weight within 3 months. When thats ALL you do is work out with a PROFESSIONAL trainer who knows what he/she is doing, its very possible. But either way, I don't think its right to just automatically say "Oh, thats a juicer, there's no way in hell someone..." That's fucked up.

I'm sure Jake is taking shit from GNC but that's not illegal juicing, that's using protein supplements and there's nothing wrong with that.

Besides that, looking at the picture, he looks big, yes, but defined? No. He barely as a six pack. You tellin me he has the body of someone juicing? If he was on roids, he'd look like Sylvester Stallone in Rambo three. To me, Jake looks healthy. But whatever.

This one has Jerry Bruckheimer, Mike Newell, who directed the amazing Donnie Brasco and also the Goblet of fire. Plus the talk that the production itself is fucking MASSIVE and well, I'm excited. Of course, Ive been excited before...

With all due respect to all on this site, I have been involved in bodybuilding and personal training for over 20 years. I can spot a juicer when I see one.If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it's a duck.

They should have used someone who actually looks Persian. Juiced up or not, this guy looks about as Persian as Jet Li looks German.

Sigh

I didn't realize that because I'm black I'm supposed to love the concept of Will Smith playing Captain America, for example...
Meh.

Walter Sobchak...

Considering that this site has its share of bigots when an article is posted of a black actor or actress is considered for a part of a white superhero...I do agree with you.

Jake Gyllenhaal is neither Persian, nor looks like it. The source material should be respected.

I'm not familiar with any known Arab-American actors that can fit the role (save for some that were in the film United 93), but I'm sure some that an unknown could have portrayed the part.

Usually, unknowns have been casted in roles that have led to bigger and better things.

there's no "maybe" when it comes to actors using shortcuts to get big. With their resources, why the heck wouldn't they? The "maybe" is about whether or not they're illegal. He could've just taken Dark Matter Creatine or something similar that you can get at GNC. It's a shame that nowadays we jump to the steroids conclusion whenever someone improves their physique. But as someone who lifts weights kind of regularly, and someone who's a fan of Jake, I can tell you that his new body isn't

@ Gregorious8

I appreciate your stance, but I offer an example: I'm a tall, scrawny-cut guy, who cannot gain weight by way of food, and has an existing disposition for a muscular tone that likes to stay a constant. A couple years ago I worked a manual labor job in the (climate-wise) most hellacious parts of Florida, spending most of my time being beaten down by the sun, lifting and hauling 80lb bags of concrete, etc. Within 2 months I gained about 15lbs of pure muscle, all over, with never "working out" a

A couple years ago I worked a manual labor job in the (climate-wise) most hellacious parts of Florida, spending most of my time being beaten down by the sun, lifting and hauling 80lb bags of concrete, etc. Within 2 months I gained about 15lbs of pure muscle, all over, with never "working out" a single moment. Now, my body is one that refuses to change, but just that tells me the results could have been double if I was lifting iron, doing leg presses, weighted sit-ups and whatnot. If you factor in somebody taking aminos and creatine, whatever else, their muscles get inflated with water, and you look absolutely "diesel", or whatever the kid's say.

If an actor, who has people there to maximize efficiency and visual results, has 3, 4 months (minimum, let's say) to prepare for a role, I don't see why it's questionable. All it takes is hard work and a some know-how.

Maybe actors do take short cuts to get camera-ready bods, but far be it from me to ever accuse one of doing so.

Ah, I wouldn't go so far to use Christian Bale as an example of someone getting "jacked" natural. It's pretty hard to gain that much weight/muscle in under a year, no matter how much free time one has.

Nobody knows for sure, but steroids aren't out of the question.

"Jake Gyllenhaal is the new Hollywood juicer... Got too big too fast to be natural."

I urge you to take a look at Christian Bale in 'The Machinist' and in 'Batman Begins', as there was only 1 year between those films. It's not as if actors have to find time outside their relationships, day job, errands, etc. to work out; if they have to muscle up, they have months of nothing but working out to look forward to. Also, don't throw such specific, boldly stated allegations of highly illegal

Also, don't throw such specific, boldly stated allegations of highly illegal activity out on a forum as public as an incredibly popular site on the internet. Think what you want, but if you MUST say something use more tact and discretion with how you phrase things in the future.

ANYWAY- I like the funds and talent involved here, but I'm far from convinced this film could be anything but a passable distraction. The source material has a great story and perceptions of reality (READ: visuals of the rewind, fast forward, etc.), but I'm afraid it's going to devolve into some typical showdown at the end with Kingsley holding a knife to some broads throat and Gyllenhaal's Prince caring more about tang than the mission, or something else so stupid that only Hollywood could be responsible. Ehh, I'm holding out hope. I'd like a well cut teaser to surface in the next few months, to keep things interesting.

Jake Gyllenhaal is the new Hollywood juicer. Must have hung out with Jose Canseco in Mexico. Got too big too fast to be natural.

He could do some more work on his core. Where are the abs? Is that a love handle I see? Does growing your hair long and throwing some dirt on yourself make you Persian? Bad casting choice, but I'm sure it will be entertaining.
