In advance of the Prince of Persia's preview in the July issue of Empire magazine, a snippet has been released, including a quote from Jake Gyllenhaal: '"I'm always fascinated with these kinds of stories of the hero's journey," Gyllenhaal told us. "You're playing a legitimate hero, you know? I think it's an honour to do that."'
'Newell, meanwhile, says there's much more to Prince Of Persia than Gyllenhaal roaming the sixth century with his top off [Damn.... WDW interjection]. "This isn't just kind of kiss kiss, bang bang," stressed the Four Weddings And A Funeral director. "It's like a superheated, super-actioned Noah story. It's what happens when the gods get angry and so fed up with humans they want to rub them out and start all over again."'
Jake in the 'Bu
This past holiday weekend, Jake Gyllenhaal attended a rather glamorous beach bash in Malibu. We've seen Jake enjoying the 'Bu before, with friends, dogs, sea and surf. These stunning surroundings and the weather, that ranges from exhilerating to beautifully tranquil, provide a fine context for Jake.
I'm very fortunate in having been to Malibu on a few occasions, usually in the early Spring, and I remember on one occasion sitting below one of the elaborate wooden houses on stilts, chatting to its owner, while we watched a family of dolphins playing in the surf.
There's a reason for a seaside post today, quite apart from how good Jake looks by the sea. Pack your bucket and spade, dig out the suntan lotion and please find me a road map, as WDW heads to the seaside for a long weekend. It may not be Malibu, there may be no hobnobbing with Tom Hanks, but there's a good chance I may stumble across the King Arthur Fish & Chip Shop and Ye Olde Round Table Antiques, for yes, I am heading to Camelot itself - Tintagel (and other bits). I hope you'll join me!
In order to get ready for the trip, Ruby and I indulged in a seafood platter tonight. An adventurous and indeed perplexing meal... As for the little red guy (Cray) at the front - I insisted that the waiter take him backstage and release him. It's well known that I cannot eat cute food and, once I have given my meal a name, consumption is unlikely. The ugly thing on the plate stood no chance.
