Zodiac star Jake Gyllenhaal got very excited while training for his role in next summer's blockbuster Prince of Persia: Sands Of Time. Gyllenhaal knew that his role would require some physical activity and other feats of strength, but he was surprised to learn that he was going to ride a horse while holding a sword. Gyllenhaal said that it felt like one of his childhood dreams was coming to life and that he also hopes that some other dreams of his — like hitting a game winning grand slam for Boston Red Sox and going boogie boarding with Abraham Lincoln — come true in the next few years.
