See that guy in the middle?  That's my father.

They asked the audience if anyone else wanted a try at the bull, and this man appeared in the ring before my mother realized he was gone.  Never pass up a good opportunity.  He had two kids.  He don't have any more.

Ah heck, that's nothing a little beer and some chili won't fix.

Isn't he 60 years old by now?

He's been working the press tour for the new movies for what feels like years at this point.

And nothing of value was lost

I can't wait for the movie to come out so I stop being fed the trailer in the theater.

With any luck that hit knocked some talent into him

This guy has to have NFL-level CTE at this point.  I know they're more padded up on their body than Mick Foley on their stunts, but their heads have received tons of impact over the years.  He looks 'bad' during interviews the past few years.  The crew seem fun-loving, but I really hope we don't see any of the guys have a Benoit-type episode where they 'hear the voices' and try to harm themselves or others.

He's probably aged his body beyond 60, but he was born in 1971.

I don't think that's how it works.

It would be hilarious if the end sequence of the first Jackass movie came true and Steve-O was the last one standing.

Yeah, I kinda want Knoxville to stop doing stunts as well.  They're funny but they're not worth becoming disabled over.  It's been a good run, go ahead and do some other stuff and just don't bother with the really dangerous stuff anymore.  It's all good.

I have seen his non jackass movie 'acting' and have to ask....how could you tell if he was brain damaged.  That would imply that there actually was a brain in his head.

I mean, he was supposed to be the smart one of the Duke boys when he was in the Dukes of Hazzard movie.  No.  Just........No.

Beer and chili doesn't work once you hit 40. :(

He needs to find a 19-21 year old invincible protege to take over the throne.

/While collecting a % of income of course.

I was a 14 year old skater when 'Jackass' came out, and was already familiar with the crew through the cKy and Big Brother Magazine videos.  Much to my wife's chagrin I'll probably make her tag along to watch with me, as I'm a huge sucker for nostalgia.

I hope the paycheck and fame was worth the Parkinson's/Alzheimer's in his future.

I might be able to sell my wife on seeing this when it hits streaming if he does the grandpa makeup. She couldn't stop laughing at the scene in Bad Grandpa with the sharting all over the walls

It's gonna be a hard sell but we haven't been out in a long time so I think I can pull it off.

Don't know if you've seen it but if she likes the grandpa makeup he does it in the movie 'Action Point'.  Obviously it's not 'Citizen Kane' or anything, but if you both are ever up for a fun, dumb movie, it's good for some laughs.

A friend of mine was an extra on one of his movies. She said he wouldn't stop hitting on her during the days she was working. I'm somewhat surprised she didn't kick his ass.

Methinks it was brain damage that caused the "Jackass" movies, not vice versa.

The shiat videos were life changing. Or maybe it was the 40s we were all drinking.

Jackass was always the real life "Ow my balls" except stupider.

Knoxville is one of those guys that is going to end up dying of something stupid like choking on an olive.

Clogging the hospitals for pranks and encouraging others to do the same.  This is why we can't have nice things.
