Charlie Sheen Roast Adds William Shatner, Kate Walsh and Jon Lovitz

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 8th 2011 3:45PM
The Charlie Sheen Roast just got a little more weird, and significantly more random. Comedy Central announced that former roastee William Shatner, in addition to 'Private Practice' actress Kate Walsh and Jon Lovitz, will be joining Mike Tyson and a slew of stand-up comedians in the public tarring and feathering of America's most embarrassing celebrity.

In addition to those stars, the network also announced that comedians Patrice O'Neal and Amy Schumer will be on the roast dias. Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash will also be there, but it's unclear whether he will be a roaster, or just take a long nap under his giant hat.

The full roast roster also includes previously-announced Roastmaster Seth MacFarlane, Mike Tyson, Steve-O, Anthony Jeselnik and RoastMaster General Jeffrey Ross.

Charlie Sheen Roasters Announced: Mike Tyson, Jeffrey Ross, Anthony Jeselnik, Harvey Levin, Steve-O

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 29th 2011 2:00PM
The roster for the 'Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen' is coming into focus. The network announced today that Mike Tyson, 'Jackass' Steve-O, and TMZ boss Harvey Levin will join roast veterans Jeffrey Ross and Anthony Jeselnik in the quest to skewer Sheen like a Shish Kabob.

More roasters are expected to be announced in the coming days.

Ross, known as Comedy Central's Roast Master General, saved Sheen's nearly disastrous live-tour by taking the stage to rip on the torpedo-of-truth-teller. Jeselnik was perhaps the breakout comic star of the highly-rated Trump roast.

Tyson has been branching out into film and TV work in his boxing retirement, guest starring in 'The Hangover,' and an episode of CBS's 'Same Name.' Most anything that Tyson says in his signature high-pitched voice is instantly hilarious, and him going after Sheen should be funnier than the time he promised to eat his opponent's children.

Steve-O Says Johnny Knoxville and the 'Jackass' Crew Saved His Life

by PopEater Staff, posted Jun 25th 2011 3:00PM
Hours after a fatal car crash left 'Jackass' star Ryan Dunn dead, the late daredevil's close friend Steve-O took to Twitter, saying, "I love Ryan Dunn and I'm really going to miss him." Only a few days before the horrid and fiery wreck, which left another person dead, Steve-O revealed to PopEater's Rob Shuter that he is lucky to be alive after years of addiction.

"Johnny Knoxville and a bunch of our 'Jackass' crew staged an intervention and they forcibly locked me up in a psychiatric ward," Steve O told me. "When I got to the hospital I was so belligerent that they changed my status to two weeks. So the three days went to two weeks, and with that kind of time on my hands in a psych ward I eventually came to the conclusion that I really needed to make a change."

Ryan Dunn and Steve-O Having Fun, Winning for Charity on 'Minute to Win It' (VIDEO)

Ryan Dunn & Steve-O, 'Minute to Win It'Two members of the 'Jackass' crew took to the stage on 'Minute to Win It' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) and proved themselves to be real class acts, trying to raise money for two worthy charities. If you're going to go on television to raise money for charity, why not have fun doing it? And it was clear that Ryan Dunn and Steve-O were having a blast with Guy Fieri and these wacky games.

No one could argue that the games on 'Minute to Win It' are so outrageously simple you can't help but have a blast doing them. Balancing four hangers on the tips of their hooks on a clothesline is brilliantly stupid, and that's what makes the show so fun.

It was a charming display through and through, reminding us that these guys are more than the crass things they do in their 'Jackass' performances. These are genuinely humble and decent human beings with huge hearts.

Is 'Dancing With the Stars' Stacked Against Certain Celebs?

by Katy Kroll, posted Apr 25th 2011 12:00PM
All's fair in love, war and 'Dancing With the Stars.' Well, maybe not 'DWTS.'

Since it premiered in 2005, 'DWTS' has offered us a mélange of the rhythmically challenged and the naturally talented, pitting, for example, a clumsy John Ratzenberger against a nimble Apolo Ohno.

While a wide array of contestants with varying skills certainly makes for good TV, we're beginning to wonder whether some celebrities are getting a raw deal when the judges score everyone based on the same criteria. This season, for example, 60-year-old, overweight Kirstie Alley is directly competing and being scored against chiseled 21-year-old pop star and basketball player Romeo. Is that really fair?

To investigate this situation, we went to the only people who know what's really going on -- those directly involved with the show. We asked past 'DWTS' underdogs Cloris Leachman, Debi Mazar and Steve-O the burning question: Is the competition stacked against certain celebrities?

Steve-O Dishes on 'Dancing With the Stars' Predictions and 'Jackass 4'

by Katy Kroll, posted Apr 15th 2011 5:00PM
Steve-O is best known as the habitually naked stuntman from the 'Jackass' franchise who's willing to do almost anything for attention. But since sobering up more than three years ago, he's started to branch out by appearing on season 8 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' becoming a poster boy for PETA, embarking on a one-man comedy tour and penning an upcoming memoir about the ups and downs of his life.

Last year, 'Jackass 3-D' raked in more than $100 million at the box office, proving that being a "professional idiot" (as Steve-O calls it) still pays off.

Here, he opens up to us about why he did 'Dancing With the Stars' and who he thinks will win this season. He also talks about performing stunts sober for the first time and whether there might be a 'Jackass 4.'

'Jackass' Guys Perform Painful Stunts on 'Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

'Jackass' Steve-O Endures Stunt on 'Tonight Show'As part of their 'Jackass 3D' promotional tour, the daredevil boys (sorry, we just can't bear to call them men) did some stunts in 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) studio. If they succeeded, audience members got prizes. First, Jason "Wee Man" Acuña strapped a raw egg to his forehead. If he was limber enough to high-kick and smash it (in three attempts), a fancy dinner was on the way for one attendee.

Next up, Steve-O endured some "free ball tee ball." In baseball cap and tighty-whiteys (no cup: "I'd be happy to prove that for ya"), Steve-O braced himself for "a severe hit" to his groin. If he could stay on his feet, another prize dinner.

Lastly, Bam Margera rode a skateboard down a ramp, holding a baby doll. A rope "clotheslined" him right at the neck. If, after crashing to the floor, he was still holding the doll, Papa John's pizza for everybody. Check the video to see how they fared.

Lacey Schwimmer, Jonathan Roberts to Skip 'Dancing With the Stars' 10th Season

Lacey SchwimmerLeave it to Twitter to spoil 'Dancing With the Stars' before it even premieres.

This week, dancers Lacey Schwimmer and Jonathan Roberts took to the social networking site to announce that they will not be returning to fight for the mirrorball trophy when season 10 kicks off next month.

"Hey twitterbugs! I will not be doing DWTS this season," Schwimmer tweeted. "But be sure to tune in! <3"

Since she joined the show in 2008, Schwimmer has danced with Lance Bass, Steve-O and Mark Dacascos of 'Iron Chef America.' No word on whether the decision came from producers or was made on her own accord.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 6 Results

by Michael Pascua, posted Apr 15th 2009 12:32AM
Melissa Rycroft on Dancing with the Stars(S08E11) With no dance off, the results show lost most of my motivation. The fluff factor of the cheesy dances was in high effect. The episode was surprisingly sexual: Samantha couldn't keep a straight face interviewing Lawrence about Edyta's lack of clothes, Chuck said some double entendre involving Bruno, Shawn and Melissa considered putting their partners in very little clothing, and Steve-O used the word "Man-struate."

Luckily for America, the show created one of the best drinking games. It has nothing to do with scores, clothes, or Samantha Harris saying something stupid. More information after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 6

by Michael Pascua, posted Apr 14th 2009 12:38AM
Dancing with the Stars - Week 6(S08E10) We're finally at the half-way point where (presumably) the bad dancers have disappeared. We have our four early standouts and then the other four. It's weird that there are only three female celebrities left, but those three are the best.

How do I love this show when there are two large flaws bringing it down? The musical arrangements this were horrendous. The band's take on "If I Were a Boy" by Beyonce and "Dance Dance" by Fall Out Boy were atrocious. Samantha still hasn't improved; this week she called Len a "Poopy head."

On a fashion plus, I got my wish of Edyta wearing legwarmers. Even Lil Kim has a pair. More musings after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 5 Results

steve-o is shocked to survive another week of dancing with the stars(S08E09) I was jarred by the beginning of the show. I flip the channels and realize that right after the credits, the show started off with Lil Kim and Derek's performance. Wait, what? Gilles and Cheryl scored better by three points. No matter.

I'll admit that I skipped the performance in favor of Adam Lambert. His performance on American Idol was more interesting than five minutes of a dance I saw before. In the recap, we learned that last night Melissa ripped her dress, which is one of the reasons why she was thrown off.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2 Results

Lacey and Steve-O(S08E03) With the results of week one, it could go either way. Either a non-contender bites the dust, or someone just doesn't have the fanbase. You can't say that Gilles has no fanbase after two really strong performances.

The recap show somehow managed to squeeze 26 performances in an hour. I now realize how much time I've wasted having to sit through Samantha Harris. Along with the results, and 30 minutes of other filler, Jewel performed. I'm sure someone out there was giving her the evil glare. The results after the jump.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2

(S08E02) - "We all know what Bruno wants." - Chuck

The show was a little off this week with the random sound cue during Ty's judging, the frozen video with Lawrence, the new judges paddles and Steve-O, but the performances were a lot better than last week. Most of the weaker dancers improved, and the rest basically stayed in the same scoring bracket. After the jump, an overall look at all the performances.

Hospital Trips with the Stars

by Michael Pascua, posted Mar 14th 2009 3:29PM
Steve WozniakMove over Jewel and Nancy O'Dell, it seems as though there are some more bodies going to the Dancing with the Stars infirmary. This time there are three men with some reported injuries. This season is really shaping out to be all about the drama and nothing about the dancing. Find out who got injured this time after the jump.

Gilles Marini is suffering from a separated shoulder after checking an X-Ray. They gave him a cortisone shot, so he's recovering. We've had arm troubles before (Cristián de la Fuente) and they've just had to readjust to not put too much pressure on the injured arm.

TV 101: I'm such a Jackass (or five things I learned at MTV)

by Jay Black, posted Mar 21st 2008 12:01PM
God, why did I take this assignment?On the Jackassworld website, they have a "feature" called the "AlphaPoo". This is a collection of 26 pictures of... er, human poo... that resembles the alphabet. I don't bring this up because it's clever (in fact, if there is a bright center of clever in the universe, the AlphaPoo is the idea farthest from it); I bring it up because writing this feature about Jackass reminded me of poo. Specifically, poo that you want to come out but won't.

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...
