Expect a solid performance from Jake Gyllenhaal in his new film, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” (out May 28). Gyllenhaal took the role so seriously he stayed in character even when the cameras stopped rolling, according to an Us Weekly report.
“Jake would chat with crew and visitors in a British accent,” according to an onset source who spoke to the magazine. “It was funny to hear this American guy talking in an accent when he wasn’t shooting. He took it very seriously.”
Ok, so a white guy in an American film is using a British accent to portray a Persian character, which, therefore, makes him a serious actor.
I'm having serious Tropic Thunder flashbacks ... at least he didn't go full retard.
Something else random -- an anime opening for you; this one is from Beck!
