Johnny Knoxville rose to prominence during the early 2000s with the MTV prank-based show, Jackass. It featured him and a group of skateboarders and stuntmen including Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Wee Man and the late Ryan Dunn. The show’s popularity was a favorite with teenagers and young adults, and featured guest appearances from Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.
Aside from the Jackass television and film series, Knoxville has appeared in other movies including The Dukes of Hazzard, A Dirty Shame and Men in Black II. Knoxville is currently filming the Josh Schwartz comedy Fun Size opposite Chelsea Handler.
