Persian Rug

Monday, March 9th, 2009

We now return you to your usually scheduled digestion of trash.

Boy-monkey Jake Gyllenhaal is starring in an adaptation of the video game Prince of Persia. Jakey-poo does not look overly Persian, but since most people don’t know what a Persian looks like (other than Blofeld’s cat), it hardly matters. Just stick a bad wig on him and you’re done.


It is a very bad wig. (Or possibly very bad hair extensions.) Hopefully it will look more convincing in motion, when he’s running along walls and waving his big curvy sword about. For when he’s standing still, they’ve come up with a different distraction, i.e., packing on muscle and not wearing a shirt.

This probably won’t be a good video game movie adaptation (there is no such thing), but it might be quite watchable.
