Jackass Forever Stars Steve-O and Chris Pontius on Wildboyz Revival

In the time after Jackass' sudden cancellation as a television show immediately after its third season MTV quickly moved to fill the void of this style of programming with two spinoff shows, Viva La Bam and Wildboyz. The former was more of a traditional reality series with bits of Jackass tossed in for good measure, focusing on Bam Margera and his family/friends, while the later was more of a nature show, again with bits of Jackass tossed in as well. As previously said by series director and executive producer Jeff Tremaine, the success of Wildboyz lead to the continuation of the Jackass movie franchise. That in mind, could the series return on streaming or even on the big screen?

Jackass Forever Stars Steve-O And Chris Pontius Talk About The Spirit Of The Franchise [Interview]

More than 20 years ago, MTV debuted a little show late at night featuring a collection of gnarly dudes doing stupid stunts and pranking one another. That series, "Jackass," went on to be a global phenomenon, so far spawning four theatrically released films, the spin-off films of "Bad Grandpa," a handful of straight-to-video sequels, several spin-off shows including "Wildboyz," "Viva la Bam," and "Homewrecker," and more. The antics of a group of skateboarders and professional knuckleheads became an indelible part of pop culture. The road has been hard, and it has been long, but the cast members of "Jackass" have plenty of stories to tell.

Johnny Knoxville And Chris Pontius On Wildboyz And The Future Of Jackass

"Jackass Forever" just dropped last Friday across theaters, and the 20-plus year old cringe comedy brand laughed all the way to the bank. The fifth installment in the "Jackass" feature film franchise (its first sequel in 11 years) raked in a $23.5 million opening over its first weekend, rocketing past Lionsgate's "Moonfall" at $9.9 million over February 4-6. It's almost as if there is an evergreen, universal appeal to seeing grown men leap into cacti patches and slap each other in the nuts. Here at /Film, there's nothing but love for the goofy band of merrymakers; Josh Spiegel hails it as "enormously, outrageously funny" in his glowing review, while Lex Briscuso got sentimental over the legacy of the late, great Ryan Dunn. Overall, the "Jackass" crew — that's Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Steve-O, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehey, Preston Lacy, Jason Acuña, and (in one scene) Bam Margera, as well as new blood Sean "Poopies" McInerney, Jasper Dolphin and his pops Compston "Darkshark" Wilson, Zach Holmes, Rachel Wolfson, and Eric Manaka — seems to have brought sorely-needed levity to a pandemic-weary audience.

Steve-O and Chris Pontius Face $12 Million Lawsuit Over Jet Ski Stunt Injury as Video Surfaces of Incident

A man has filed a lawsuit against Jackass stars Steve-O and Chris Pontius over their involvement in a jet ski stunt that left him with a head injury. Per TMZ, Michael Vicens-Segura filed a lawsuit against the duo, who also starred together in Wildboyz, due to the bloody injury their stunt allegedly caused. He said the two came to him in 2018 in Puerto Rico, and was asked to help them achieve a sort of jet ski tug-of-war involving a bungee cord. The two, facing opposite directions, were to drive their jet skis off to see who would be pulled off first.
