Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) Poster


Johnny Knoxville has stated that his Irving Zisman character is a combination of his own father and a more perverted version of himself.
Despite his young age, Jackson Nicoll mostly remained in-character during filming.
The first "Jackass" film to be co-written by writers outside of the Jackass crew. Fax Bahr and Adam Small, who co-wrote the story, previously wrote Jackass (2000) parodies on their show, MADtv (1995).
Although credited, Spike Jonze (Gloria) was not in the final cut but can be seen during the end credits and the deleted scenes on DVD/Blu-Ray.
The first Jackass movie to receive an Academy Award nomination.
It took three hours to apply the old age make-up on Johnny Knoxville every morning.
The production piggybacked off a real estate sale for the scene where Bad Grandpa is selling off his furniture.
Jarrod Brom, one of the segment producers on the film, asked his bride-to-be if she would let the production prank their wedding on the condition that none of their friends and family know what was going on. She only had two stipulations: that the ceremony itself would not be affected, and that her dress would not be harmed.
This movie is dedicated to Ryan Dunn, the Jackass team member who drove drunk to his death on 20 June 2011.
A scene was shot where Bad Grandpa and his grandson visit the grave of deceased Jackass member Ryan Dunn but ultimately it was decided that the scene injected too much of a somber tone. Instead, the film ends with a dedication to Dunn in the closing credits.
Johnny Knoxville wanted Jackson Nicoll to play his grandson in the film, having worked with him on Fun Size (2012).
Greg Harris spent a couple of hours in the biker bar prior to filming his scene where he takes delivery of his son. He used that time to essentially wind up the bikers and make them openly hostile towards him.
