Jake Gyllenhaal leaves behind Hollywood as he travels to Iceland with host Bear Grylls in Man Vs. Wild's season premiere Friday, October 7 at 9 p.m. on Discovery Channel. (Jake and his sister must be big fans of this channel, as Maggie recently hosted a special "Why Is Sex Fun?" on it.)
Grylls is a survivalist who usually works solo on the series, but in this first episode brings along Gyllenhaal to Iceland to test his mettle against blizzard conditions.
The episode will show whether Gyllenhaal measures up to unpredictable Mother Nature in Iceland -- where for two days, he and Grylls embark on a survival experience in an Icelandic landscape dominated by mountains, huge glaciers and some of Europe's most active volcanoes.
We know Gyllenhaal stacks up well in Hollywood action movies, but how about in real life? We shall see...
In the meantime, watch this trailer from the episode where he learns that worms are, u(g)h, full of protein!
