Can Bam Margera act?
We may learn soon. Deadline says Paramount is developing a scripted feature titled “Mustache Riders,” about a trio of ne’er-do-wells who team with a grizzled outlaw to locate Curly’s gol … er, some hidden loot. It’s to star Margera and two of his fellow “Jackass” performers, Johnny Knoxville and Ryan Dunn.
The idea is the three aging shopping-cart riders (Knoxville turns 40 next week) will do their own stunts.
Hopefully they'll find roles for Wee Man, Steve-O and the rest of the crew.
Broken Lizard, which was behind Knoxville’s starring turn in “The Dukes of Hazzard,” is somehow involved as well.
Separately, Knoxville is attached to star in the same studio’s “First Man,” about a hellraiser whose wife is unexpectedly elected president of the United States.
