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

October 12th, 2010 11:40pm EDT
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
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

Johnny Knoxville
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.

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

May 28th, 2008 8:38am EDT
The Dukes of Hazzard
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...

The room gets quiet. Your face gets hot. You do your best not to look at anyone else while your insides curdle and you long to be anywhere but in that room. Sound familiar? Whether your 15 or 50, watching certain subject matter with your elders can equal sheer mortification; with that in mind, we've compiled a list of twenty films too a...

For us, certain songs will always be linked to the movies in which they appeared. In some cases that's a good thing - you will never be able to hear Misirlou by Dick Dale & His Del-Tones without thinking of Pulp Fiction again, will you? In others, the memory isn't so good: I Say a Little Prayer by Dionne Warwick was featured in My Best Friend's Wedding. Unfortunately it was sung by the cast. Here are's songs that will always be connected to a film, for better or worse:
