David Blaine to hang from Brooklyn Bridge

David BlaineThat's going to be the magician's next stunt on ABC. He's going to hang 135 feet above the water from the Brooklyn Bridge for a long period of time.

It was reported a few weeks ago that Blaine's next stunt would involve living with various dangerous animals in the jungle, but it looks like while that project is still in the works, it's going to be a documentary and not one of his stunts.

The NY Post piece above says that last week he was hanging from the bridge with suspension wires. But I'm still not sure what the stunt will be. Will he be hanging from suspension wires? If so, I'm not sure what the "stunt" aspect is. Or maybe he was just practicing and he'll be hanging from his hands or something?

I think David should be put in a coffin full of venomous snakes. He could call it "Snakes on a Blaine"

Quote: 1. please tell me that he will hang by a rope around his neck. He use to be a cool street magician, but now he's like a mystical version of Steve O. Has he done any magic recently?

I know what you mean. David Blaine is lame now. He used to be amazing, but now he's just doing major stunts(which are rather silly, adding to the fact that he failed his last one) to compete with a much better adversary Criss Angel. Now, his show is a little bit "in your face" for me, but it's still interesting, and his tricks are clever, dangerous, and the show leaves you wanting to see more.

What makes Blaine amazing is that his stunts aren't some high priced Las Vegas illusion. He is actually pushing the envelope of what a human being can endure. No one else can touch him as far as his stunts are concerned. Bubble gum magic like Criss Angel is funny, I mean fun, to watch. But, as far as human endurance and performing amazing feats Blaine kills the competition!!!!

Excellent keep up the good work David, you still have millions of fans, even though if there is a minority of people out there who express how they dislike you...
im sure your next stunt will convert even more people to enjoy your stunts and illusions.
Oh yea and Criss Angel is good too

i find him to be entertaining and a talented magician. abc pays blaine millions to do 4 stunts a year i believe it is. if u live in nyc it's quite cool to see his stuff in person. some people are just so negative on these comments. you can still admire a person even if you are not intersted in his works.

David Blaine gave his heart and soul to every single person that came to his last trick. Not one person left the sphere of water without bieng given attention by a great man that was exhausted and in severe pain. With that kind of love and soul he will be given a great life...because he is a great man..for the haters Karma will get you..........

CHRISS ANGEL ( WITH ALL DO RESPECT ) HAS GOT NOTHING ON DAVID BLAINE. DAVID IS THE MASTER AT WHAT HE DOES, HE IS UNIQUE, HE WAS THE FIRST.

"MR. ANGEL HASTHN'T EVEN TOUCHED THE TIP OF THE ICETHBERG". PLUS I DON'T LIKE HIS LISP. I KNOW THAT'S MEAN... BUT DAVID IS OVERALL #1!
