Jake Gyllenhaal embodies an action star – literally – in his new movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, according to his costar Gemma Arterton.
“He has so much action, but he does really well at it,” Arterton says in a video promoting the movie, due in theaters May 28. “He’s a bit of an action figure himself, I think.”
Gyllenhaal, 29, who plays the Prince of Dastan, definitely has an action figure physique for his role.
