'Men vs. Wild with Jake Gyllenhaal' (Mon., July 11, 9PM ET on Discovery) finds the 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Love and Other Drugs' star teaming with Grylls for a snowy, icy, carcass-filled trip.
Following in the footsteps of funnyman Will Ferrell, who ventured to Northern Sweden with the show a couple years back, Gyllenhaal will show off his tough-guy skills, without the help of any stuntmen or body doubles like in the movies.
We can't wait to see these two get rugged together, but it got us thinking -- who should be next? Last year, Gryllls told us he wanted Cameron Diaz to tag along, and it looks like that's happening. (Although Ben Stiller was set to go, too -- whatever happened with that?)
Here, eight more celebrities we'd love to see roughing it on 'Man vs. Wild.'
Jamie Hyneman & Adam Savage
Corporate synergy aside, the potential lovefest between Discovery Channel's best and brightest would be enough to get us to tune in. Plus, the only thing funnier than these two 'MythBusters' bickering in their workshop would be watching them go back-and-forth in the tundra.
She's certainly charming, but would she be able to survive in a frill-free 'Man Vs. Wild' environment? My gut says yes, and she'd have fun doing it ... as long as this one-time World's Sexiest Vegetarian had some non-animal protein handy.
Not unlike his 'Parks and Recreation' character, Ron Swanson, Offerman is an outdoorsy guy. His dry delivery while making tools out of found items would be a very welcome form of entertainment. Think of all the wild man hair!
I'm sorry, wasn't the question "Who would you like to be trapped in the wilderness with?"
No, seriously. The actress climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro a year and a half ago to raise awareness for the global water crisis, so she's definitely up to the challenge.
'Man vs. Food vs. Wild' ... the possibilities are endless.
This would be a complete ratings stunt, but can you imagine the outpouring of Twihard support? Team Jacob would be rabid for any chance to see him shirtless and flexing his muscles, and Team Edward would probably just like to see him in danger. Finally the two sides could agree on something!
