Forget JACKASS IV!! Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn To Star With Willie In Scripted Action Comedy MUSTACHE RIDERS!!
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.

But I remember first hearing about "First Man" a few years ago, and I think it was originally set to star Robert De Niro in the lead role.

Bam Margera, I hate you so fucking much you fucking cock sneeze piece of shit, fucking immolate yourself

It might be really bad...but I mean having said that, you can't really say the Jackass movies are cinematic masterpieces...so i'll probably enjoy it regardless, haha.

Jackass is so tame and cuddly when you look back on it now ... about as cutting edge as a Care Bear. Get the Dirty Sanchez boys in and I'll be interested .... who the fuck would pay to watch Margera anyway?

It was awful and so was everyone in it. That's not to say that he couldn't be convincing with a professional director.</P><p>So wierd. AICN just let me update my profile. It had my email address from 13 years ago. Is this new or just something I've been overlooking for years.

I freakin' hate that punk Bam Margera. The other guys seem harmless enough, even sweet (in a mildly retarded way), but Bam just strikes me as being a giant douchebag. I've seen nothing to contradict this evaluation. Why not let Pontius be in a movie with Knoxville. I'll bet Pontius could turn into a decent actor if given the chance.

But there's something to be said for a dude getting kicked in the nuts. God bless these guys.

But when they hit, (Super Troopers, Club Dread), they really hit. Their stand-up show was beyond awful, shame as I really like them. And for all you Club Dread haters, I shall defend that movie until my dying day! One of the best horror comedies ever made imho. And I agree that Margera seems like a total prick, whereas all the others just, don't.

Possibly my favourite stupidest film of all time.

But I was beaten to it. Damn you, dirkd13"!!!
March 4, 2011, 9:34 a.m. CST
Didn't know that. Huh. And yeah, "Club Dread" was a great slasher spoof! Really, I loved it. I little too long maybe. When the killer reveals his "motivation" it was so insanely stupid it's hilarious.

They're always hanging around in hotel rooms, playing with each others balls and cramming stuff up each others asses. Look at that pic for fuck's sake.

IMHO, that is. I missed the special olympics movie he did, but he was decent in everything else I saw him in.
March 4, 2011, 5:11 p.m. CST
check him out law and order i think this movies gonna be awesome!!
March 4, 2011, 8:04 p.m. CST
Seriously, I love Jackass, CKY & kinda like Viva La Bam, but the most awesome show to come out of it all was The Wild Boyz.
