Remembering His Life and Legacy on 'A Tribute to Ryan Dunn' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 29th 2011 6:30AM
'A Tribute to Ryan Dunn'Ryan Dunn made a lot of people laugh with all of the crazy stunts he did on 'Jackass' and its various spin-off shows for MTV. So the network, along with his friends, family and castmates, presented 'A Tribute to Ryan Dunn' (Mon., 10:30PM ET on MTV), featuring a look at his life and rise to fame, as well as never-before-seen stunts.

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.

Britney Spears Endures Jackass StuntBefore Britney Spears took to the stage of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) to perform her new single, Johnny Knoxville shared footage of the 'Jackass 3D' gang subjecting the pop star to horrific levels of human excrement.

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.

'Jackass' Crew Spoofs 'Social Network' at 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards' (VIDEO)

Johnny Knoxville on 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards'At the 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards' (Fri., 9PM ET on VH1), the guys from 'Jackass' parodied 'The Social Network.' In a curly wig, Johnny Knoxville played the zoned-out Mark Zuckerberg, unfazed by threats from the Winklevoss twins.

"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."

Johnny Knoxville Learns About a Bizarre Injury on 'Graham Norton'In the course of shooting the 'Jackass' series of shows and movies, Johnny Knoxville has suffered many, many injuries -- including wounds to his hand, head, teeth ... and penis. He's suffered a dislocated shoulder, whiplash, landed a motorcycle on his groin, and more stuff that you don't even want to hear about.

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.

Johnny Knoxville's Daughter Plays Ruthless Practical Jokes Too (VIDEO)

Johnny Knoxville Talks Daughter's Jokes on 'Chelsea Lately'Like father, like son daughter. Johnny Knoxville's 14-year-old daughter Madison is a chip off the ol' block, by the sounds of it. On 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), the 'Jackass 3D' star described the ongoing war of practical jokes being fought between Madison and 'Jackass' director Jeff Tremaine.

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."

Johnny Knoxville Plays Real-Life 'Operation,' Shocks a 'Jackass' in the GroinIt's time to stop playing little kid's games, and time to start playing a real man's game. Either that, or it's time to start electrically shocking a random dude in the groin. Both are good options on the new 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

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.

Jon Stewart Admires 'Jackass' Team, Compares Them to Buster Keaton (VIDEO)

Johnny Knoxville Talks 'Jackass 3D' on 'Daily Show'When Johnny Knoxville said he and his 'Jackass' cronies "have no idea what we're doing," Jon Stewart strongly disagreed. "Boy, this is going to sound crazy," said the 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) host. "Anybody can whack someone in the nuts, but the way that you guys [do it] ... When you told me that they were screening this at MoMA, my first thought was, 'Yeah, I can see that.'"

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.'

'Jackass' Star Johnny Knoxville Was Busted by the Cops While Babysitting (VIDEO)

'Jackass' Star Johnny Knoxville Was Busted by the Cops While BabysittingIs there something odd about the picture to your right? There's a shirtless dude, a bunch of cops, and ... some adorable smiling children. That's weird. But the photo starts to make more sense, once you realize it involves professional daredevil Johnny Knoxville.

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."

'Jimmy Kimmel': Johnny Knoxville Offers Moonshine, Parenting Tips (VIDEO)

Johnny Knoxville Offers Jimmy Kimmel Moonshine, Parenting TipsJohnny Knoxville brought a gift with him to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC): white lightning. "I get it very illegally from my friend in Tennessee," he said.

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."

New Stunt, Prank Shows Coming to MTV

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 1:02PM
The Dudesons
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.

Avatar technology being used for new Jackass movie

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 21st 2009 8:02PM
James Cameron's Avatar has created new filming techniques and heralded a new age of storytelling and artistic endeavors. And it's being used to film evolution's little mistakes getting hit in the beanbag with a golf club.

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.

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...
