    Show: The show developed from Big Brother Magazine, a skateboarding-related humor magazine that Jeff Tremaine, Dave Carnie, Rick Kosick and Chris Pontius all worked for, and featured regular contributions from Johnny Knoxville and Dave England, amongst others. The genesis of Jackass dates back to 1996 when struggling-actor-turned-writer Johnny Knoxville birthed the idea to test different self defense devices on himself as the basis for an article. He pitched the idea to a couple of magazines and was turned down until meeting with Jeff Tremaine of Big Brother in 1997. Jeff hired him as journalist and convinced Johnny to videotape this idea and other stunts for stories. The footage, which involved Knoxville being tazered, maced, and ultimately shot while wearing a bulletproof vest, appeared in the second Big Brother skateboarding movie Number Two. Johnny quickly became a hit. Big Brother would go on road trips, which is believed to be where Johnny met Bam Margera and they became good friends.

    Movie: Jackass: The Movie, directed by Jeff Tremaine, was released on October 25, 2002, with the tagline "Do not attempt this at home." It is a riskier continuation of the stunts and pranks by the various characters of the MTV television series Jackass, which had completed its series run by this time. The film was produced by MTV Films and released by Paramount Pictures.

    The show features all of the original Jackass cast, including Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Bam Margera, Preston Lacy, Ryan Dunn, Brandon Dicamillo, Ehren McGhehey, Raab Himself, and Jason "Wee Man" Acuña.

    Other regular Jackass personalities who made appearances include Rake Yohn, Manny Puig, Phil Margera, and April Margera. In addition, Rip Taylor, Henry Rollins, Spike Jonze, boxing star Butterbean, Mat Hoffman, and Tony Hawk make cameo appearances.

    I don't know how it's possible to do Jessica Simpson, say that you didn't do her, then say you did her.

    But watching him get branded is fun ;). It's like dicks on a dick!

    I love Jackass, Wild Boyz, and Viva La Bam.

    I wanted to rent Jackass Number 2 but my mom didn't let me. :(
    She said I had to buy it.
    And when I do buy it I'm gonna have to make sure my mom doesn't see it. From what my friend said after watching it my mom might hide the movie from me. :shock:

    I was a big big big fan, and tried to emulate them with plans of skateboarding of my roof and even got as far as buying the skateboard and going on the roof...than I pussed out.
    I love the movie though (haven't seen the 2nd one). viva La Bam is okay, got worse as the seasons went on... My favorite Jackasses are probably Ryan, Raab and Dave. Steve-o's cool, too.
