It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the Jackass gang, but they are back with a brand new movie, set to hit theaters this October. This time around, they will be abandoning the straight up prank set up that has proven successful in past movies. Instead, they’ll be using the pranks within the constraints of a story about a small boy and his 86 year old grandpa. Johnny Knoxvillehas played the role of 85-year-old Irving Zisman in previous Jackass movies, but this is the first time that they have built an entire movie around the character. Think of it as Jackass meets Borat.
86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicholl) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
