There was also a cautionary element to the story; Dunn died in a drunk driving incident. Had he not been drinking, he'd likely be alive today, and that wasn't lost on Johnny Knoxville in his remembrance. But mostly, his friends and loved ones were joyful that he was happy with his love and his life, even if it did come to an end far too soon.
Roll tape. She claims she's not afraid of "poo-poo." But what about the "poo cocktail supreme"? They lock her in a porta-potty lodged between bungee ropes. As the portable toilet soars through the air, bouncing up and down, human waste splatters throughout the inside, across the camera and all over Spears (er, a stunt double).
Perhaps the grossest aspect of the ordeal is that she keeps screaming -- so her mouth is open the whole time.
"Watch it, jerk," said Jason "Wee Man" Acuna. "I'm 4-foot-6, 150 pounds, and there's two of me. You told us you'd help us out with WeeBook."
Knoxville/Zuckerberg replies, "WeeBook was just a dating site for little people. My idea was so much bigger ... a dating site for little people and big people."
On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), host Norton asks Knoxville how much longer he can keep doing this sort of thing. Is the stuntman getting too old? Fellow guest Joan Rivers defends Johnny's honor, saying that he's not over the hill yet. "Just enjoy yourself," she told him.
It started when she was only 8 years old: Tremaine drenched her with a water hose (indoors). She was livid. But the next day, when he demanded she get him a beer, she slipped him a cocktail of sorts -- half beer, half urine (from an accomplice).
"About 20 seconds later, I hear Jeff puking in the sink, and she's convulsing on the floor in laughter," said Knoxville. "He declared war at that moment, and he's really been losing terribly."
Host Jimmy Fallon welcomes two members of the 'Jackass' crew -- head 'Jackass' Johnny Knoxville and his sidekick Danger Aaron. Jimmy has a "fun" treat in store for the guys: An updated version of the classic board game "Operation." But Jimmy decides to raise the stakes a little, by creating a life-sized (and much more painful) version of the game.
Stewart went on to compare the slapstick comedians to Buster Keaton, the revolutionary comic actor and filmmaker of the silent-film era. "They put themselves through these trials and tribulations in a similar fashion." Knoxville compared his team to the not-so-revolutionary (being fictional and all) 'Tom & Jerry.'
Johnny is the star of 'Jackass,' a raunchy series featuring absurdly dangerous stunts. On the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Knoxville discussed a lifetime of crazy antics -- including the time that he was busted by the cops while babysitting.
First, Knoxville mentioned some of the terrible injuries that he's suffered during his 'Jackass' career. The worst one involved being hit in the groin by a motorcycle. Knoxville was quick to assure David Letterman that everything was still okay with his, um, groin area. "I just had a nine-month-old boy," he said, "so 'it' still works."
The 'Jackass' star advised his host to keep the moonshine away from flames. "I take a warning from you very seriously," Jimmy Kimmel told the daredevil prankster.
The host congratulated Knoxville on the birth of his son Rocko, born last December. But he was a bit concerned about his upbringing. "Are you going to be able to shield everything you've ever done from Rocko -- because how do you discipline a child when you're you?"
Knoxville said his 14-year-old daughter has been sheltered from many of her daddy's antics, and he now follows this rule: "Pranks are fine, but no stunts for the kids."
However, it could be trickier with Rocko. As Kimmel noted, "A girl doesn't have a penis to set on fire, for instance."
We heard yesterday that MTV is finally getting rid of the "music television" in their logo, because obviously it was just getting in the way of all of the other stuff. So what types of shows can we look forward to coming up on the network? More stunts and reality of course, according to Variety. One is 'Dudesons in America,' which will feature four guys from Finland who do wacky stunts and pranks. Yes, this is MTV and this involves probably pain to the participants, so Johnny Knoxville is one of the show's producers. (Side note: "Dudesons" is a fantastic name, isn't it?) An earlier 'Dudesons' series ran on Spike a few years ago.
The other show is 'MTV's Parkour Challenge,' which will feature talented athletes competing against each other in "urban sports': running up walls and in and out of buildings and jumping and what not.
Most audiences will know parkour from the opening scene of the James Bond movie 'Casino Royale,' where Bond chased the guy through the construction site.
MTV's Jackass will reportedly take Cameron's film techniques and implement them into Jackass 3D, the third movie installment based on the popular TV stunt comedy show.
The show's chief jackass, Johnny Knoxville, said in a press release that they would use the technology to take the camera where no camera has gone before: "up Steve-o's butt." I'm sure a 3D version of that will do wonders for Milk Duds sales at the concession stand.
See, almost four weeks ago, I was sent to MTV Studios to cover the 24 hour Jackass "takeover" of the network to celebrate the premiere of Jackassworld. I figured that I would write up a few hundred words the next day and everyone would be happy. Instead, this article has festered in the bowels of my brain for almost a month. Enough is enough. I've taken some mental Metamucil (i.e. Scotch) and I'm just going to let it rip...
Um, no, these two weren't married recently in either Massachusetts or New Jersey. What's actually happening here is that "irreconcilable differences" is being cited as the reason for divorce from their significant others. But, you knew that already, didn't you?
In Wayne Brady's case it's his wife, Mandie Brady, that is filing for divorce under these circumstances. The former star of The Wayne Brady Show and Whose Line is it Anyway? (and current host of FOX's new show Don't Forget the Lyrics) and his wife married in 1999. The couple separated in April of 2006, according to papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court. Mandie is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple's 4-year-old daughter, Maile.
That's right, fans of Jackass, the popular MTV series that spawned two feature films is being turned into a game for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS. You can pick up your copy on September 24. Or, you can pick it up after September 24. Or you can order it online and not have to pick it up at all. Or you can use your money to buy a jar of pickles, what the hell do I care?
