Is Jake Gyllenhaal a man’s man? We’ll soon find out when his Man vs. Wild episode airs, showing the actor looking all grizzly on a two-day adventure through the frigid Iceland. 

According to Discovery Channel, in the episode “Jake will have to go where Bear goes, eat whatever Bear eats, and on occasion even take the lead, if he’s going to cope with some of the worst conditions known to man.”

The Prince of Persia actor said of the journey: 

“For me, it’s all about discovery.”

Even Bear seemed pleased with Jake’s ability to hang in such harsh conditions, saying: 

“The wild is always very revealing – not only physically but mentally. 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.”

Man vs. Wild airs on Discovery Channel Monday nights. Will you be watching Jake out in the wild? Let us know in the comments section below.
