'Man Vs. Wild' Sneak Peek: Jake Gyllenhaal Does His Own Stunts (Video)
We may know him as A-List actor, Jake Gyllenhaal – star of such recent films as Source Code, Love and Other Drugs, and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. But, the actor finds out that nature couldn't care less about his Hollywood resume when he joins Bear Grylls on the season premiere of Man Vs. Wild on Monday, July 11 at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
The Hollywood Reporter has an advanced look at two sneak peeks from the star’s adventure with Grylls as he takes on Iceland’s mountains, huge glaciers and active volcanoes.
In the clip above, we find that crossing between two mountains becomes a scary prospect for the movie star. But he actually takes a brave lead in the second clip below as he maneuvers over a frozen mountaintop where the risk of falling through a snow trap is a very real threat.
