Johnny Knoxville Opens Up About Fan Abuse
Johnny Knoxville's fans are so fond of the wild stunts he pulls off on television and in the movies, they like to physically abuse him when he's out on the town.

The Jackass star pays the bills by taking shots to the testicles, out-running bulls and performing nauseating practical jokes and he admits he has to watch his back when he's out socializing because devotees think he's a human punching bag all the time.

The Bad Grandpa actor says, "The guys try to fight me and the girls would come up and put cigarettes out on my arm; I had one put it out on my face. I had a girl come up and say, ...

42 year-old daredevil/movie actor Johnny Knoxville was left surprised to discover he comes from a long line of in-breeders during a recent family tree climb.

The Jackass star hired a top genealogist to trace his roots and he was shocked by his findings.

Knoxville says, "He calls me in... and he goes, 'Sit down, you know in these rural mountain regions you come from, no one ever goes into the community and no one ever leaves the community... so it's not uncommon that there's in-breeding in those communities.'

"I said, 'Is there in-breeding in my family?' and he says, 'A significant amo...

Hilarious Looking 'Movie 43' Trailer Features Tons Of Stars, Gerard Butler As A Leprechaun

October 3rd, 2012 6:09pm EDT
Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic. We have no idea what it's about, other than it's actually 25 short films helmed by several different directors including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner and Griffin Dunne, and it features a huge, HUGE cast of A-list stars.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

'Jackass' Pioneers Internet Distribution With 'Jackass 3.5'

April 5th, 2011 11:15am EDT
Jackass 3.5
These days, a big opening weekend box office just isn’t enough for a movie. VOD is now a viable distribution model and YouTube is making people famous. Someone in Hollywood had to pioneer a new way of releasing movies, and who better than the Jackass gang? Their latest, Jackass 3.5, is releasing on Joost.com.

“I like the idea of it being a digital release,” director Jeff Tremaine said. “I think it brings a lot of energy to it. This movie was never intended to be theatrical.”

Joost.com is releasing Jackass 3.5 in short segments, with new stunts available each Tuesday and Friday. “We intend...

Quirky moviemakers the Farrelly Brothers want Cher to play a scary nun in their Three Stooges movie.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly insist the Burlesque star, who played herself in their film Stuck on You, would be the perfect fit for the Mother Superior role in the comedy - and they have a few other dream castmates for the project, which at one point was to include Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro and Sean Penn.

Peter Farrelly tells CinemaBlend.com, "We always thought Andy Samberg looks a little like he could play Larry and Johnny Knoxville is a real-life stooge. He's a real-life Moe."

Fashion Fails: Chloe Sevigny Is A Sailor, Ginnifer Goodwin's Breakfast Wear, And More!

Chloe Sevigny
Everyone has an off-week when it comes to fashion. Still, we can't help but think someone should have told these stars to think twice about their outfits before stepping out! Chloe Sevigny gets us started this week with her sailor outfit. Usually a fashion star, Sevigny looks comical and underwhelming in this black and white ensemble better suited for those at sea. Don't get us started on that hair, either.

Ginnifer Goodwin looks like she purchased a dress made of doilies. While the short hair is definitely trendy right now, just about everything else in this picture isn't. What's goin...

Bam Margera Utilized 'Weiner Cam' For 'Jackass 3D'

Bam Margera
The new "Jackass" movie features one of the stunt gang's most risque pranks - Bam Margera agreed to urinate on friends' faces and film their reaction at close range with the use of a 'Weiner Cam.'

The fun-loving prankster thought it would be a giggle to take a small camera to his penis and then sneak up on unsuspecting pals and pee on them.

Margera felt sure the stunt would be axed from the final edit of "Jackass 3D" - but the scenes were too funny to cut.

He tells Penthouse magazine, "It was kind of an experiment. It was a camera taped to my d--k and I was walking around, waiting to cat...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Jackass 3-D,' 'Conviction,' & More

October 12th, 2010 10:41am EDT
Conviction
Robert De Niro and Edward Norton’s latest collaboration “Stone” turned out to be a serious disappointment. While both of the actors turn in decent performances in their respective roles, the film’s writing and directing are seriously lacking. “Stone” dabbles in several concepts such as morality, spirituality, and loyalty; however it does not pay enough attention to any of them to make a cohesive story.

Norton plays Stone, a convict seeking parole, who employs his attractive wife (Milla Jovovich) to seduce his parole officer (De Niro). Over the course of the film it’s never quite clear S...

Johnny Knoxville Still Recovering From Groin Injury

Jackass prankster Johnny Knoxville is still recovering from a horrifying motorcycle stunt that almost cost him his manhood in 2007 - he still has to catheterize himself daily to avoid further damage.

Knoxville was filming a tribute to stunt legend Evel Knievel when he tried to ride a motorcycle up a dirt hill. He lost control of the bike, which shot up in the air and landed on his crotch, tearing his urethra. He's was bedridden for weeks, and has relied on a permanent catheter which empties his bladder ever since.

Now, three years later, he's still forced to carry a portable tube, which...

"Jackass" star Steve-O wants to cut back on his stunts.

The "Jackass" pranksters are at it again in their third outing presented for the first time in 3D - an effect that will no doubt redefine the use of the in-your-face technology.

Steve-O explained, "I'd love to make a living without shoving things up my butt."

Steve-O has pulled various stunts. For example, he once swallowed a fish to see if he can vomit it up unhurt and stapled his testicles to his leg. Last week to promote his new film he sprayed his head with hairspray and lit his head on fire at Fantastic Fest.

As we all know, a few weeks ago Dallas Cowboy Pro Bowl quaterback Tony Romo dumped Jessica Simpson on the eve of her 29th birthday. Romo reportedly dumped Simpson because she was receiving and saving ex-boyfriend and musician John Mayer's text messages.

Playing A Special Needs Character: Roles Nobody Can Afford To Phone In

November 18th, 2008 12:08pm EST
The Ringer
Portraying people with special needs hasn't always been done in an entirely politically correct manner in Hollywood. The further back in history one looks, the more likely a film's content contains something now considered offensive.

Yet in recent forays down that complicated road, many actors have not only stepped up to the plate, they've hit home runs in roles that challenge a society's perspective on many facets of the relationships and abilities of those who simply happen to be the way they are. Each time a movie comes out with a special needs character with a dramatic or serious ...

Three Best & Worst TV Shows Turned Into Big-Screen Films

With so many long-running series coming to an end lately, it hasn't taken long for message boards and fansites to buzz with ideas for big-screen reunions. There are a ton of television shows already green lit and in various stages of development (The A-Team, Dallas, and I Dream of Jeannie to name a few). It doesn't seem too farfetched to assume even more producers are awaiting the opening numbers from this Friday's release of Sex and the City: The Movie before they offer a firm stance one way or the other.

If it's a hit, even four years after the show went off the air, the wheels will...
