Hot Toy Alert: Jake Gyllenhaal Action Figures

I don't have kids, but on May 28, I think I'll adopt a few for a day and bring them to opening day of The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The movie (based on the video game) is set in medieval Persia and tracks the adventure of a studly prince and princess who team up to stop the forces of evil from taking over the world. Here's the best part: Jake Gyllenhaal plays the prince, who often goes shirtless. Jake’s a mommy fave; devoted boyfriend to divorced mom of two Reese Witherspoon, he gave hope to single moms with baggage everywhere. (Yes, in the end they broke up, but we’ll always have those adorable shots of him getting all stepdad with her kids). And here's the second best part: buying Prince of Persia action figures. The Prince Dastan one looks exactly like Jake Gyllenhaal, which might make playtime a little more fun for everyone in the family.
