Johnny Knoxville created the now-famous Jackass franchise. It all started with a show called Jackass that ran for three seasons on MTV starting from 2000.
After the show ended, the concept lived on through several spinoffs and the 2002 film, Jackass: The Movie. Two sequels followed in 2006 and 2010, respectively: Jackass Number Two and Jackass 3D.
The journey has been painful but exciting for the cast, and this is something Johnny Knoxville and Chris Pontius recently addressed.
Knoxville and Pontius took some questions from fans during an AMA(Ask Me Anything) on Reddit. One of the fans wanted to know which stunts they loved the most and which stunt they regretted the most.
For Pontius, the glove of bullet ants is the "most dreadful thing" he's done so far. He referred to the time he and Steve-O stuck their hands into a glove filled with poisonous red ants during the filming of MTV's Wildboyz.
The two were in Brazil, and after the experience, they had to get medical assistance.
Knoxville said he had no regrets, but he had a favorite. His favorite stunt is the stunt in which Ryan Dunn "put the toy car up to his butt."
Dunn passed away in a car accident back in 2011, which means he won't be appearing in the new film.
The next film in the series, Jackass Forever, is set to be released tomorrow, and it features the same dangerous stunts that defined the last three films.
Most of the original cast members will be back, including Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, and even Bam Margera. The first female member of the Jackass team, Rachel Wolfson, will also be in the latest movie.
Jackass Forever will also feature celebrity appearances from Eric Andre, Machine Gun Kelly, Tony Hawk, Tyler the Creator, Jalen Ramsey, and P.K. Subban.
Jackass cast members have been in lots of stunts over time. This is not expected to change in the upcoming film.
Knoxville and Steve-O ended up in hospital after filming Forever for just two days. This shows that the crew members have not toned down their recklessness while on set, and fans wouldn't expect any less.
