Celeb TV Travel: Bike with Ewan McGregor This Summer
Now here's a reality show we actually want to watch: Actor and avid motorcyclist Ewan McGregor turned up at the Television Critics Association yearly press tour to talk about his new documentary "Long Way Down," which chronicles a ride he took with best friend Charley Boorman from Scotland all the way to South Africa.
The bike trip, which took place last summer, isn't even McGregor's first long race. Being rear-ended, devoured by mosquitos and getting held at gunpoint ensued on a 2004 trip across Europe and Asia and over to New York, but McGregor, currently bouncing between the Canadian set of the Earhart biopic "Amelia" and the Rome set of "Angels and Demons," wasn't deterred. And this time, his wife even learned to ride a motorbike so she could take a stage with them.
To find out what happens when a major star embarks on a "Road Rules"-style adventure, catch "Long Way Down" on August 2 on FOX Reality.
