Will Jake Gyllenhaal live up to Will Ferrell’s time on the acclaimed Discovery Channel series Man vs. Wild? Will this battle between these two celebrities win over Bear Grylls’ Man vs. Wild series itself and Bear’s quest for the extreme? There’s three ways to make your ruling and give your judgements.
First, look at the pictures above and compare Will to Jake’s Man vs. Wild-ness. Second, watch a preview of Jake’s episode below and compare it to the first part of Will’s episode that originally aired in 2009, also below. Third, watch Jack’s complete episode airing on The Discovery Channel tonight, Monday, July 11 at 9PM ET. You can then compare it to Will’s full episode via various internet viewing sources.
Both Will and Jake were taken to the cold – Will in Northern Sweden and Jake in Iceland. Both landscapes where the show’s host Bear took our male celebrities are epic and ruthless locations in the Arctic Circle. I believe Bear wants to turn celebrities into Vikings. I want to be put on record that I publicly thank him from the bottom of my heart. Who needs to act in films when you can live a Viking’s lifestyle? The true Mountain Men.
Heart pounding and good moments were caught from both of our Hollywood leading men, or shall I say Vikings. You be the judge.
