Tony Hawk's Worst-Ever Injury Happened When He Was with the Jackass Crew

Tony Hawk's Worst-Ever Injury Happened When He Was with the Jackass Crew
Tony Hawk recently discussed the worst injury of his career with Jackass star Steve-o. The professional skater appeared on an episode of MTV's Wildboyz in 2003, where he attempted the "Loop of Death," which is how the incident occurred. The show starred Jackass crew members Steve-o and Chris Pontius, along with cameos from Johnny Knoxville, Wee-Man, Manny Puig, Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man, and more. While Wildboyz only lasted for four seasons, it had a big impact on Jackass 2 and even the third installment, according to director Jeff Tremaine.

In a recent episode of Steve-o's Wild Ride podcast, Tony Hawk discussed his 2003 Wildboyz injury. As it turns out, the stunt was supposed to be Steve-o's but he shattered his ankle while performing a stunt involving a porta potty. So, Hawk came on board and decided to take on the "Loop of Death," which is also known as a full pipe in the world of skating.

Jackass 4 Allegedly Fired Bam Margera for Breaking His Contract, Crew Is Trying to Get Him Help

Jackass 4 Allegedly Fired Bam Margera for Breaking His Contract, Crew Is Trying to Get Him Help
Amid continued uncertainty over his involvement in the sequel, Bam Margera has reportedly been fired from Jackass 4 for good. Last week Margera posted a disturbing video on social media ranting on Johnny Knoxville and the Jackass team for booting him from the project. The video was deleted soon after and Bam later suggested that there was no bad blood between them, implying he'd be in Jackass 4 after all.

Now, a new report from TMZ states that while everyone still wants Bam to get help, there's no coming back to Jackass 4. The firing all reportedly comes down to Margera's refusal to abide by the guidelines producers had required for him to stay a part of the movie, essentially breaking his contract. As for why he had so many specific rules to follow, word is producers were afraid of Margera's past substance abuse and erratic behavior causing problems on set.

‘Jackass 4’ Team Trying to Get Bam Margera Help After Meltdown
In several disturbing (and since deleted) videos posted to his Instagram last week that were then picked up by TMZ, “Jackass” star and skateboarder Bam Margera lashed out at the production of the latest installment of the franchise, saying he was being cut out of the movie and that they were stealing his ideas.

Margera, a “Jackass” star since its MTV inception in 2000, also claimed that during the production, he had to submit to breathalyzer and urine tests, and that his medications were being mandated by Paramount, the studio behind the movie. Margera appeared to be inebriated in the videos, the first of which began with him saying, “Who the fuck cares if I’m drunk as hell or not anymore? ‘Jackass’ has put me through fucking hell on fucking wheels for the past year and a half.”

The “Jackass” franchise began releasing stunt-comedy movies in 2002 with “Jackass: The Movie,

Bam Margera is calling on his fans to boycott the upcoming Jackass 4. Margera posted a lengthy and troubling video on social media, which has since been taken down. In the video, it appears that he has been fired from the highly anticipated sequel. According to Steve-o, the cast and crew were able to get some filming done before the shutdown started early last year. While the professional stuntman was bummed they had to stop, he was also hopeful that the team would come to the table with better ideas after being given some extra time to think.

Steve-o provided his Jackass 4 update in December 2020, but did not mention Bam Margera not being involved. He was hanging out with Bam Margera that same month in southern California, which is where Margera now lives. In his now-deleted video, Margera calls on fans to boycott the sequel.

Two Jackass 4 Stars Were Hospitalized On The Second Day of Filming
Over a decade after their last cinematic outing and seven years following spinoff Bad Grandpa, the band is finally back together and shooting on Jackass 4 is underway. The fifth installment in the incredibly popular series was originally set to release in March of this year before production was halted indefinitely due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the gang now set to return to our screens in September 2021.

Jackass may have peaked in popularity 20 years ago, but the franchise is one of the most profitable properties at Paramount’s disposal, having raked in close to half a billion dollars at the box office on combined budgetary costs of just over $50 million. The films have also been the subject of a surprising amount of critical acclaim, with the very first installment the only one that doesn’t hold a Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Steve-o Calls Jackass 4 Quarantine Shutdown a Blessing, Isn't Sure When Filming Restarts

Steve-o Calls Jackass 4 Quarantine Shutdown a Blessing, Isn't Sure When Filming Restarts
Steve-o has provided a promising Jackass 4 update. The highly anticipated sequel actually started filming earlier this year. Steve-o reveals that they had one week under their belts when the public health crisis put a stop to just about everything. At the time of the pause, star Bam Margera noted that it was actually positive for them since both Steve-o and Johnny Knoxville had to go to the hospital after "an incident where they hopped on a full-speed treadmill with band equipment."

For Steve-o, the Jackass 4 production delay gave him some time to think about what they were trying to pull off. The Jackass crew has been at the game for a long time, and they aren't kids anymore, which means that pulling off stunts is getting even more dangerous than it was before. Regardless, Steve-o seems confident that the movie will get back work soon. He had this to say.

Hear Karen O and Willie Nelson’s Transformative Cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’

Hear Karen O and Willie Nelson’s Transformative Cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’
Karen O and Willie Nelson have partnered for an unlikely cover of Queen and David Bowie’s classic hit, “Under Pressure.”

The pair completely transform the 1981 pop gem into a slow-and-steady country-tinged ballad, with O and Nelson’s vastly different voices combining in a particularly poignant way — the former’s sweet croon intertwines with the latter’s weathered drawl as they move through the song’s bridge. The cover was produced by Dave Sitek and features guitar from Nick Zinner, Imaad Wasif, and Johnny Hanson, as well as background vocals from Priscilla Ahn.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Review: Sacha Baron Cohen Faces the Paradox of Wringing Comedy from Trump’s America

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Review: Sacha Baron Cohen Faces the Paradox of Wringing Comedy from Trump’s America
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (let’s call it Borat) took the English-speaking comedy world by storm in 2006, wheezing throngs of critics and comedians declaring it nothing short of a revolution: at a rough-cut screening for Hollywood’s comedy intelligentsia, Simpsons writer George Meyer is said to have confided in Judd Apatow that it was like hearing the Beatles for the first time. Borat––Sacha Baron Cohen’s impossibly outrageous orientalist stereotype hailing from a fantastical Kazakhstan where women sleep in cages, antisemitic effigies are ritualistically beaten for sport, and a horse is treated like a man––mingled in unscripted interactions with a diverse cross-section of unsuspecting Americans ranging from politicians to rodeo-goers to aging TV starlets. The result was comic anarchy that nailed the peak reality-tv, early-YouTube, cynical late-Bush cultural zeitgeist. It was part Johnny Knoxville, part Andy Kaufman, all

Jackass 4 Will Address The Fact That The Gang’s Reaching Middle Age
Despite the brand peaking in popularity close to two decades ago, Johnny Knoxville and the gang will be back on our screens next year when Jackass 4 hits theaters. Coming over ten years after their last outing in the 3D third movie, the fourth installment was originally set to be released in March before being delayed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, then eventually getting shifted all the way to September 2021.

Of course, the franchise has done remarkably well both critically and commercially for a series born from a no budget TV show that gathered a group of friends together to partake in stunts that ranged from heartwarming and hilarious to dangerous and disgusting. In fact, Jackass is actually one of Paramount’s most profitable enterprises, with the four entries so far earning close to $490 million at the box office on combined production costs of just over $50 million.

Jackass 4 Addresses Cast's Age with Super Crazy Stunts Assures Steve-o
It may be coming a little later than originally planned but Jackass 4 is heading our way next year. It has been a long time since we've seen Johnny Knoxville and the gang together. Be that as it may, Steve-o has assured that the chemistry is still there and that he will be doing plenty of crazy, physical stuff.

Jackass originally debuted on MTV 20 years ago. Steve-o was speaking in a recent interview about the show's legacy and the subject of the fourth movie came up. Steve-o says that he was surprised to learn that they were indeed doing another movie but, because he's been keeping up with wild stunts in the years since the last installment, it felt natural for him. Here's what he had to say about it.

Repair Your Torn-Up Heart With These 25 Facts About 'N Sync

Repair Your Torn-Up Heart With These 25 Facts About 'N Sync
It's been 25 years since Lance Bass met those four "jackasses"—and we don't mean Johnny Knoxville and Steve-o. Rather, Oct. 1 is the day—back in 1995, when he was 16—that Bass met J.C. Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Justin Timberlake in Orlando, Fla., and was accepted into their fledgling boy band right away. As 'N Sync, the five lads would embark on one hell of a ride that resulted in not only global fame, fortune, eight Grammy nominations and millions of records sold, but which also altered the course of pop music history forever. And all in just a few short years—though, obviously, it feels as if 'N Sync has always been a...

Jackass at 20: disgusting, childish, dangerous and ... heartwarming?

Jackass at 20: disgusting, childish, dangerous and ... heartwarming?
The show, which started in 2000 on MTV, was a source of controversy for its ill-advised stunts but its ultimate wholesomeness still shines through

The very first episode of MTV’s Jackass, airing on 1 October 2000, bore the striking title Poo Cocktail – referring to a stunt in which Johnny Knoxville is strapped into an excrement-filled porta potty, which is then upended by a forklift truck. Back on solid ground, he emerges triumphantly, covered in human (and dog) waste, and immediately starts to chase the rest of the cast and crew. While showering off – aided by two men in hazmat suits – Knoxville is asked by the cameraman how he thinks it went. “It was disgusting, it was horrible. I was awash in a sea of poo,” he replies, grinning all the while. When the second episode aired the following week and MTV achieved its highest-ever Sunday night ratings, a ragtag group of pranksters

How Amanda Adelson Went From “Accidentally” Directing A Kanye West Video To Shaping ‘Beastie Boys Story’ With Spike Jonze – Q&a

How Amanda Adelson Went From “Accidentally” Directing A Kanye West Video To Shaping ‘Beastie Boys Story’ With Spike Jonze – Q&a
Beastie Boys Story, released by AppleTV+ in April and nominated for five Emmys, tells the story of the band that was formed in 1978 by Adam Yauch, Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz.

The film, directed by long-time collaborator Spike Jonze, was not your usual rock doc. It was told via a live show put on by Diamond and Horovitz (Yauch passed away in 2012) following the release of their memoir Beastie Boys Book.

Back in April, the film’s press tour was dominated by Diamond and Horovitz joking through interviews with a bit of context from Jonze, who first worked with the band in 1993 on their Time For Livin’ video.

But one of the people instrumental in the film who was not particularly visible was Jonze’s creative producing partner Amanda Adelson, who helped write the film in addition to producing it.
