Lostzoe, I agree. Everyone is different, but from personal experience with my family and all, I don't think it matters so much. And besides, Jake may not be as rich as Reese, but he's certainly not financially limited by any means either. Also, I don't think Jake is the type to get jealous of Reese's higher pay checks and status, and suddenly feel that he has to compete with her. He seems way too mature and well brought up for that. I doubt Reese cares either. So if he is doing it for the money, I think it's for him (and Reese), and not just to prove a point that he can be just as successful as her. JMO!

Oh and going by the latest sets of pictures, I agree with you on that too. They look playful, especially Reese, and in some of the pictures it looks like she's even teasing the papz. It looks to me like they were happy in the pictures, not upset. Maybe they were covering their faces because they were ashamed of getting kicked out of yoga class Who knows, though?

Anyway, I'm still not too excited about this project, but I just need to have more faith in his choices. I've been wondering why he agreed to do this part, because it doesn't seem like his type of movie, and it made me think of something Reese said years ago. She said that she never saw herself in a romantic comedy type movie, but that she had hard time getting roles sometimes because directors didn't find her to be marketable, so she did Legally Blonde because she thought it would really help her career. And now she's the highest paid actress, with her fair share of projects to star in and produce. So considering Jake's latest films have unfortunately been flops, he may be having a hard time getting roles that he wants, and because Reese has been there, she and other actors know that taking a mainstream role can really help, which allows them to have their choice of projects in the future, so that encouraged Jake to sign on to be the Prince. So maybe he's doing it for that reason, or maybe I should just stop speculating, and the reason he is doing the part is simply because he just likes the idea

Carla: I've been trying to find the article, but I havenít had much luck thus far. I'll have to keep looking. He said it around the time he was promoting Rendition, but there were so many different interviews/articles being released, that I couldnít keep them straight. I'll keep looking for it, because Iím pretty sure he did say something along the lines of him no longer being interested in superhero roles, which I thought was pretty cool.

And whoever said there won't ever be another BBM, I agree. I think that kind of film is once in a lifetime.

One slight thing that does concern me about this film is that Jake will have to grow his hair. I'm not too sure what he might look like with long hair. Will have to wait and see.

I've been thinking the same thing! I don't know this character or game, but the images that have shown up here point toward a man with longish hair. How will Jake look? I think pretty fantastic. He has great hair, and the hair pros in Hollywood know how to create a look. I'm only hoping they don't use a wig--I imagine that would be really crappy.

Believing in Jake as an actor, I wouldn't expect him to be anything but fabulous in this role. Of COURSE he'll do well as Prince of Persia, giving it his all--the full range of his imagination and talent--as he always does. It's his career choice to do this, and who am I to say otherwise? I can't possibly know why Jake has contracted for this latest deal, but the money is unquestionably part of the motivation. How could it not be? How important it is in the overall scheme is something none of us can know.

My comments on the money issue in the relationship still stand, despite the disagreement with them. I didn't make clear that I was thinking specifically of the woman being the bigger earner in a relationship. If Jake and Reese stay together, and even marry, their incomes will be a factor in that relationship. Any divorce lawyer or marriage counselor will tell you that money is a gigantic sticking point when people have troubles, maybe the biggest one of all. The underlying problem may not actually be the money, but on the practical level that's what people fight about and hurt each other with.

Everybody has to deal with this, in their own way. For some couples, it's never a problem. For the majority, it is. Look at Paul McCartney and Heather Mills. Look at the subject of deadbeat dads. Why do rich people, including celebrities and movie stars, have prenuptial agreements? it's not a happy thought, that someday you might break up and have to settle up your assets. I hope J&R contiinue to be happy, get married, and raise a family. I hope their careers flourish, in an equal way. My speculation is that Jake is not a moneygrubber, but that his self-respect demands that he pull his share of the weight, meaning that he would want to command fees equal to Reese's. And don't forget, we all need to feel that the work we do is worth a decent finanacial reward. If you're a big-name movie star, you want your price to reflect that.

Ok, can we drop the whole financial issue and get back to talking about the movie?

We may never know WHY Jake chooses the films that he does, so meanwhile, let's just enjoy those choices.


*is still excited*


Even though I don't think the Prince should have a name...hah.

Throughout the entire series he is just referred to as "The Prince".

It's not really a huge deal though, and videogames are a lot different than movies, so I can understand them wanting him to have a name--so there can be more character development.

As far as being ok for kids, I mean it IS Disney, and I'm assuming they're going to be marketing for the 10-15 year old crowd. There is one "love scene" in the game between him and Farah (aka Tamina) but it's mostly implied. So I think it will be pretty tame.

I just posted this in the Picture thread:

Look what I found - a fan at IMDB made this picture (obviously a Donnie Darko fan... )



The longer hair could really work.....The last thing anyone at Disney/Bruckheimer production wants is that Jake looks laughable....but this is hot IMO....

I'm looking forward to this. I never thought this would be the type of role/movie Jake would pick, but I do think it will enhance his career and his acting abilities.
Having said that, the problem with these type of blockbusters is they need to be brought just right otherwise he could be in for a huge flop - so he is kinda taking a big risk here. But with Disney I'm pretty sure it's ginna be fine.
And Jake, please, if the movie turns out to be a succes - don't milk the formula with endless sequels...

LMAO!!! Yes that hair is a total mess - like her couch-jumping husband really *evil* . Me prefers the hair a bit more curly, like Orlando in POTC, though I'm not sure if that would suit Jake.

Well, he has to do at least 3. And trilogies tend to work out fine in Hollywood.

Where did you read he has to do at least 3 ? I probably missed that somewhere I'm afraid. The only thing I could find was the fact this game spawned 6 sequels .
