British actors Alfred Molina And Ben Kingsley will join fellow British actress Gemma Arterton and non British actor Jake Gyllenhaal in The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. There was absolutely no need for me to point out their nationality whatsoever but I got a little patriotic for a moment there. Alfred Molina is best known for playing Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2, and will play Sheik Amar, who becomes a mentor to the prince.
Ben Kingsley is best known for having a bald head, along with gaining my respect by staring in good movies such as Schindler’s List and Lucky Number Slevin. However, he grabbed my respect and shoved it up a cow by staring in Thunderbirds, Bloodrayne, The Last Legion, A Sound of Thunder and The Love Guru. It seems for every good movie Ben Kingsley does there are 5 crappy ones on the way. Hopefully The Prince of Persia will be one people actually want to see, and from Latino Reviews script review it seems they will. They gave it an A-
Trivia: Jake Gyllenhaal could have been battling Molina onscreen in Spider-Man 2 if Tobey Maguire’s back was still bad.
