Cameron Diaz will follow Jake Gyllenhaal and appear on Man vs. Wild

Discovery announced yesterday that Jake Gyllenhaal will appear on Man vs. Wild when the show returns in July, and the show’s host, Bear Grylls, said that Cameron Diaz has also expressed interest in making an appearance. Previously, Will Ferrell drank his own urine on the show.

The press release said Gyllenhaal’s experience lasted two days, and “Bear and Jake embark on a survival experience neither will forget, to an Icelandic landscape dominated by mountains, huge glaciers and some of Europe’s most active volcanoes.”

As to Diaz, “She’s agreed to it, which is great. So we’re gonna try and do it in due course,” Bear Grylls told Bang Showbiz in an interview noticed by THR.
