Johnny Knoxville Confirms Jackass 4 Will Be His Last

Johnny Knoxville has revealed that Jackass 4 will be his final movie of the series.

The actor is known for putting his life on the line in the name of comedy and entertainment, but he's said that he's had enough.

Speaking to GQ, the 50-year-old said he just couldn't justify putting his body through the ringer another time.

He told the publication: "You can only take so many chances before something irreversible happens.

"I feel like I've been extremely lucky to take the chances I've taken and still be walking around."

Adding: "I know what I signed up for, I wrote the stunts."

And it's hardly surprising he's feeling like it's time to call it a day.

Johnny Knoxville confirmed Jackass 4 will be his last.

Last year, it was revealed that he and Steve-O had been hospitalised just two days into shooting the fourth instalment of the series.

According to Bam Margera, the pair were jumping on a full speed treadmill while carrying 'band equipment', including a tuba.

Sounds about right.

Screen Rant reported at the time that neither Knoxville or Steve-O were seriously injured and they were able to get back to work as soon as they were fit to do so.

In the video, posted to Bam Margera's website, he explained: "It's the second day of filming Jackass already and Steve-O and Knoxville were hospitalised by jumping on a full-speed treadmill with band equipment - like a f***ing tuba."

He went on to explain that he was also due to be seen: "So yeah, I'm here are the clinic now, taking a p*** test. Rock'n'roll, oh yeah - I've got the scars too. Yeah man."

Knoxville and Steve-O were both injured on the second day of shooting Jackass 4.

The fourth film in the series, which was originally due to be released in March 2021, has now been slated for a September 2021 release due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

This latest Jackass flick will be the first since 2010's Jackass 3D, as well as the first time that the gang have filmed together since the tragic death of their friend and fellow cast member Ryan Dunn.

The films, released in 2003, 2006 and 2010, were all box office hits.

At a budget of less than $20m for each film, they collectively brought in $335m at the box office around the globe.

Earlier this year, Bam Margera revealed that he wouldn't be starring in the movie.

The skater had been part of the cast, but the 41-year-old said he was eventually cut.
