Like comedian Will Ferrell before him, Jake Gyllenhaal has gone deep into the wilderness and survived the elements with Bear Grylls.

The 30-year-old actor recently filmed a two-day adventure with the host of Discovery’s hit series “Man vs Wild” in the Icelandic wilds. According to the release, 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. “For me, it’s all about discovery,” said Gyllenhaal.

Said Bear about the experience, “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.”

Back in 2009, Will Ferrell went on a similar adventure, but instead of Iceland, it was the snowy northern mountains of Sweden. The pair climbed trees, improvised snow shoes from saplings, drank their own urine, and ate reindeer eyeballs. Good luck with that last bit, Jake!

The premiere of the new season of “Man vs Wild” kicks off July 11th at 9PM ET on the Discovery Channel.
