Meeting Jake Gyllenhaal and Guy Ritchie is enough to make anyone break into a sweat.
That literally happened to Baghdad-born Danish actor Dar Salim, who in Ritchie’s new movie “The Covenant” (in theaters Friday) plays Ahmed, an Afghan interpreter who pushes his own physical limits after Gyllenhaal's U.S. Army Sgt. John Kinley is gravely injured.
Salim’s stoic performance stands to make an impression, ideally better than the one he made on Gyllenhaal and Ritchie when they met at a posh private club in London.
