Chris Pontius
"Jackass 3D" star Chris Pontius always ends up in a mental institute whenever he's arrested - because police officers who don't recognize him assume he's mad.

The crazed stuntman has found himself on the wrong side of the law a few times - and was once cited for being drunk and disorderly in public when cops found him passed out, naked on a car in Miami, Florida.

He says, "I had to be sprayed with some red stuff and, God, it hurt... They didn't even take me to jail - they took me to the mental hospital like (character) Murdock on "The A-Team"... But being crazy isn't a crime."

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...

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.

You've heard about the horror stories of the uncontrollable, arrogant celebrities who think they're God's gift to the earth.

Who do they think they are?

A Look At 'Where the Wild Things Are'

April 10th, 2009 1:00pm EDT
Where The Wild Things Are
A beloved children's book from the 1960s is finally getting a release date for its feature-length film adaptation. "Where The Wild Things Are" is a simple story of a boy, Max, who acts up and is sent to bed with no supper and winds up entering the world of the Wild Things. The book's illustrations walk the line between cool and creepy, and the film's live-action mixed with puppetry promise to yield a visually stunning piece. But we'll have to wait until October 16, 2009, to find out.

Maurice Sendak wrote and illustrated the playful, innocent classic back in 1963. "Where The Wild Things...

Len Goodman commented that her bust was too big and it led to some bad posture. Bruno Tonioli said she looked like she was chasing after a bus her legs were so frantic, and Carrie Ann Inaba felt like Holly and Dmitry didn't do equal work dancing. She got three 6's which ...

Underrated & Overrated Films Based On Graphic Novels

It's rare that commercials are actually right, but today they are when they claim that a film based on the "Most-Acclaimed Graphic Novel of All Time" will be released.

That film, and novel, is "Watchmen" of course. The movie comes from the 12-part comic series from Alan Moore ("From Hell", "V for Vendetta") that was quickly packaged into a graphic novel upon its completion. Many consider this series the greatest in the history of comics and the subsequent novel actually made it onto Time Magazine's 100 Greatest Novels of the Century List. Needless to say, there's no doubting its acc...

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

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 ...
