Yesterday we got posters of Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan and Gemma Arterton as Tamina, now it’s time for us to see the face of the bad guy in the form of Sir Ben Kingsley. In Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Kingsley plays Nizam, the brother of King Shahrman of Persia, who he kills and, like the evil son of a moose he is, puts the blame on Dastan. Nizam then claims the throne of Persia and, in order to achieve immortality and power, he seeks the Sands of Time to eventually take over the world.
Okay let me get my villain check list out: 1) British actor 2) Evil facial hair 3) Wants to take over the world. Yep, this is our villain.
