Personal Quote:

Regarding MythBusters (2003): We're insured by the same people who do Jackass (2000). Once I heard that, I knew we were with the right people. (Source: Geek Monthly, January 2008, p. 35)

Trivia:

While working at Industrial Light & Magic, Grant was on a team that rebuilt the Energizer Bunny (the model that is still in use in commercials). They built and operated three bunnies. Each bunny requires three operators (head, hands, and driver). Grant began as the arms man, and moved up to become the driver. See more »
