Tyrese Gibson, one of the stars of the upcoming eighth movie in the Fast & Furious franchise, is not dealing with the Icelandic weather very well.

Tyrese arrived in Iceland this morning, and is reportedly the only member of the acting cast to be here so far. While excited to be in a new country, the Icelandic climate has proven less than agreeable to him.

In fairness to Tyrese, shooting is taking place in the northern interior, near Lake Mývatn, where temperatures are currently at about -8°C.

If you see this man, offer him a coat, or a hot cup of coffee.
