Man vs. Jake Gyllenhaal

Is that Jake Gyllenhaal or Ralphie's kid brother Randy?

Hahaha, I crack myself up.

As has been the subject of endless conversation for months (because really, what the hell else are Jake fans going to talk about?), Jake Gyllenhaal is set to appear on an episode of Man vs. Wild at some point, sometime, in the future, sometime.

I haven't the foggiest idea when.  But if someone else knows, this information would be most appreciated.

ALSO, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to the newest blog in the Jake Gyllenhaal blogging community:  Jake Gyllenhaal's World!  You should check it out; it's a tad more informative on a general level than the blog you are currently reading. ;)

I thought I liked Bear Grylls but I just read that 2 of his sons are called Maramduke and Huckleberry so fuck him and fuck his programme.

^^^ I don't care what he calls his kids, he rolls around nekkid in snow and other things. I think Jake should try that too :D

Call Me Mo June 19, 2011 at 2:24 PM  

LOL Good catch, PG.

I liked Bear until he drank his own urine. On television. For no ACTUAL reason.

BPB i just saw that too... WTF I thought he was like a bit of a hero but thats a little strange.

Well i an super duper excited for this, i cant wait to see him doing this. Reason being i think he will be very much *himself* it would be hard to act in such a situation..

Negative- he will be FULLY clothed ALL the time...

Mo, i once saw him skin a snake and carry his urine around in the skin around his neck for half a day before drinking it. Hence it was warmed up more by the sun... *vom*

Every time I look at that picture, ALL I CAN THINK is, "I can't put my arms down!" HA! It's still funny 12 hours later...

Anyway. brits, that comment made me laugh stupidly hard. Thank God married life hasn't mellowed you. :)

Apparently I'm the only person who has never watched this show! My brother described several episodes to me in detail a couple of years back and I just thought, 'why would anyone do any of that?' and then promptly forgot about it. I will totally watch when Jake's on, though, and Sam, you bring up a fantastic point about Jake not being "on" during this adventure. Should be interesting... :)

@Mo and Sam
Drinking his urine isn't what made me dislike him in an instant, but killing a snake for no reason sure did.

haven't seen it too :) but that's prolly because it never aired in this part of the world - otherwise I might have stumbled upon it coz I generally like documentaries about the wild - here is a german guy who lives in the wild too and makes films about it. But he is not like that here mentioned dude as it seems. He just loves nature and spends as much time as possible there showing how nature "works" and all. AMAZING!

found this on IHJ

apparently it airs July 11-9 10PM-ET-PT (Whatever these weird times mean, but sure US/DownUnder Girls know it xD )

Love this post & can I just say, "eeewww!!!" on drinking his urine, why in the hell would he do that if he didn't have to in order to survive??? Is he like just weird?

Anyway, I saw a similar article to Sasha's that said the same thing, the new season starts July 11th & Jake's show will be that show. & Sasha, 9 - 10 pm ET means it will air at 9 PM Eastern Time for an hour, but not sure when it airs overseas.

@Vanessa so Eastern Time like New York Time??? #RealBlondike x)
in anyway Thanx for telling me, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to watch it at all due to the fact that I have next to no US tv here x)

Sam June 20, 2011 at 5:40 PM  

Someone will cap this yeah?! Cause who knows when we will see it!!

p.s. Its gonna be a huge week! I might need some brown paper bags -That and HARRY POTTER!!

omg I just checked out Jake Gyllenhaal's World and it's so so mundane and so not new news. Here's an excerpt that made me LOL (emphasis mine)

"This was big bucks going to a noble cause, Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, but an on-set visit had to be Gyllenhaal’s easiest gig ever. . . . Between takes, the star with the dreamy blue eyes assuredly came over, shook hands, and even conversed for a while.

"Why would he do that?

"Because he’s a cool guy! I’ve never met him, but all the facts line up" blah blah blah and blah

Yeah, community service for all the needy people in Martha's Vineyard. But I guess the "even conversed" should be emphasized because usually he just scowls.

Or it is just that I've had a hard week and I'll laugh at anything?

And for the record I usually avoid shows where the guys are named Bear, Snake, or Dawg.

Becky Heineke June 21, 2011 at 2:01 PM  

THANK YOU for the info on when this airs!! Awesome. Now all I have to do is remember to watch. :) (Especially since I will likely be in complete Potter hysteria by that point!!!!)

(And Sasha, yes, Eastern Time is New York time. ;))

CC, that excerpt made me laugh too. Dear GOD, it must be a burden to go around "even conversing" with those lowly Martha's Vineyard folks...

I can not WAIT to see Jake hanging at the end of that rope! And see what other death defying stuff Bear puts Jake through.

Will Jake scream like a girl? ;)

I hope it's not part of their regimen in this episode to do anything really lame. I mean, WTF would Jake need to drink urine...or Bear either, for that matter.

They were "in the wild" for two effing days !
