Jason Momoa Fought a 9-Foot Kodiak Bear With an Oreo in His Mouth

Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard‘s new Apple TV+ series See is out now!

The 40-year-old Frontier actor and the 66-year-old Luke Cage actress promoted their show with Julie Adenuga on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Here’s what they had to share:

Jason on training for the series: “We spent a lot of time training. We spent a good month. Whether it be with, me and my wife in it or my children or as a big General leading an army, we would work with a bunch of extras. We had a solid month just to work on all different types of things to strengthen all the other senses. Even when it comes down to a simple thing as nodding. You’re listening to me nodding, you’re obviously seeing me and agreeing. There is no nodding, so you can’t have that. It’s something that we’ve evolved from by having sight.”

Alfre on what she learned from Jason: “I learned how to swear. And how to kick a mammy jammy in a bar fight. I will throw down in a bar fight now, because I’m not scared. I learned to really appreciate action. You know? I really learned to appreciate it … Jason looks for the action in every moment. It’ll be a scene that says… And Baba Voss is sleeping. He’s still on the pallet of bear fur, lying there asleep. Jason‘s like, ‘Okay, but while I’m sleeping.’ ‘You cut to my dream, and then I grab this guy by the throat. I’m like, pull… I’ll pull his goozwa out.’ Grab my hand. It’s like, Jason, you’re just sleepy. ‘I know, but while I’m there… ‘ This is one of the strongest bros I have ever met. And he is also one of the most tender people I’ve ever met. He is truly a peaceful warrior.”

Jason on having to fight a real bear with an Oreo in his mouth: “I had to train to fight a grizzly bear. You’re going to watch it. It was a Kodiak bear. It stood nine-foot tall. You’re going to see it in episode two. First, you’ve got to… I mean, you have to draw these perimeters. And you have to get it slowly close to you, and be able to interact with it. Yeah, there wasn’t like a CG Revenant thing. So once the episode comes out, I’ll put it on my Instagram, when I put a cookie in my mouth. And then he eats it up. You see my face with the little cookie, and then this massive head comes into the frame and takes- Out of my mouth, which is like… Why was Jason Momoa‘s face eaten off? Can you try to feed a bear with a cookie? It was an Oreo.”
