Updated the post to add a new Behind the Scenes featurette for Prince of Persia. We get additional new scenes, more information about the dagger ('nice knife') and a lot more Jake Gyllenhaal, complete with accent. Many thanks to Stephanie for the heads up!
Some little details...
On with the post!
You might have noticed, but it's cold out there. Of course, if it's not cold where you are and it's actually hot, then you wouldn't have noticed. In which case, don't rub it in. But as it is extremely cold here, and there's not much chance of going anywhere by train, plane or car (a horse might be an option, or a sled), it's good to swap snow for sand, if only in our heads. Take a look at these two new pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton from the Prince of Persia and you'll feel the cockles of your heart warming in no time at all.
No North Face extra quilted jacket here, no industrial strength Uggs, not even mittens. Instead we have leather straps, flimsy capes, tight armour, biceps, veins on biceps, belts, studs, furtive sexy glances - and a snood. Thanks to Jake for transporting us to the Oasis of PoP. With all those straps and accessories, I'm wondering how long it takes Prince Dastan to get up in the morning.
In the real and chillier world of The Big Freeze, Jake spent at least a chuck of his birthday evening at a charity bash for Gods Love We Deliver at the Smyth Hotel in Tribeca, NYC. It is always good to see Jake associated with a good cause and this one came equipped with a Mark Ronson set. '"No one wanted to leave because of the snow, so DJ Mark Ronson just kept playing music." Also snowbound were Jake Gyllenhaal, Matt Dillon, Gina Gershon and Philip Seymour Hoffman.' The fact that the event was sponsored (rather appropriately) by 42Below Vodka may have helped.
Maggie Gyllenhaal venture out into The Great Blizzard on Monday night when she appeared on the David Letterman Show and revealed that Ramona is a great dancer, probably about to get a flamenco dress for Christmas. Here's a brief snippet in which Maggie describes her tactic for accosting famous actors at the Globes.
Maggie's other half, Peter Sarsgaard, has just finished filming Knight and Day in Boston with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Even though the filming finished only days ago and the release is not until July 2010, it already has a trailer. Take a look because, although the film seems a little odd, in the words of the NYPost, 'any Peter Sarsgaard is good Peter Sarsgaard'.
