Man vs Wild is heading to Iceland in its upcoming season premiere, and host Bear Grylls plans to introduce the North American Gyllenhaal to the breathtaking but unforgiving landcape. Discovery has announced the Jake Gyllenhaal will guest on the July 11 premiere, spending two days in the wild with Grylls. “For me, it’s all about discovery,” Gyllenhaal said in the network’s press release.”

“The wild is always very revealing — not only physically but mentally,” added Grylls. “You’ve got to smile when it’s driving horizontal hail and be able to face your fears and just get on and do it — and on both of those accounts, Jake came up strong.”

    I wonder if Bear will allow Jake to join him at the resort where he will spend the overnights?

    I hope they were filming the sequel to Brokeback because that I would watch.


    Hmmm, Jake Gyllenhaal and another man alone in the wilderness? Didn’t they already make this movie?

  • mmmhmmm

    Jake and a bear gone camping. Too bad it’s for Discovery and not Colt.

    Two days in the wild and he is talking about facing his fears!? Wow… Doesn’t get out much I guess. Send him to a real survival school, not a staged made for TV controlled setting…

    Oh dear, trying so hard to prove how manly he is.
