‘Action Point’ Trailer: Johnny Knoxville Is Up To His Old Tricks Again
  |  @   |  

Johnny Knoxville has made a name for himself by subjecting himself to insane stunts that probably no one else but him would perform. Sometimes these daredevil schemes work better as a reality show, and other times, if you can figure out how to weave them into a plot, it can make for an interesting film.

That’s what we could get in Action Point. The film, which is based on a true story, sees Knoxville play the owner of a low-rent amusement park where the rides are not designed with safety in mind. But when a competing amusement park threatens to shut them down, it is up to the Action Point team to draw in more guests by any means necessary. Check out the full trailer below.

Prepare Yourself, World: ‘Jackass 3’ Will Be So & It Will be In 3-D
  |  @   |  

For as long as the Jackass crew has been doing what they do, fans have had to assume it was only a matter of time before they just couldn’t handle that kind of damage anymore. Even so, after the success of Jackass: Number 2, it was all but guaranteed that if they could take the hits, there would be a third film eventually, and it appears that that time is now. Cinematical is reporting that a list of Paramount Pictures’ 2010 slate of movies includes not only a third movie in the franchise, but specifically a Jackass 3-D!

Since the last movie, the gang moved on to many different projects of their own. Bam Margera has had a few TV shows added to his resume with regulars like Ryan Dunn appearing often. Steve-O and Party Boy Chris Pontius had their show Wildboyz for a while, and Pontius has unexpectedly moved on to more serious acting roles, recently snagging a part in a future Sofia Coppola film. Johnny Knoxville hasn’t appeared in nearly as many movies as it looked like he was building toward, but he and some other members of the cast and crew have begun other TV shows like MTV’s Nitro Circus, which is just like Jackass, but with professionals, and just as entertaining if you’re into that kind of “humans doing incredibly stupid things” kind of humor.

Party Boy From ‘Jackass’ & Stephen Dorff To Star In Sofia Coppola’s ‘Somewhere’
  |  @   |  

That…that may just be the oddest title I’ve ever written.

Odd or not, though, the title shines true. It’s being reported that Chris Pontius, star of MTV’s Jackass as the ever-popular Party Boy, has been cast alongside Stephen Dorff (Blade, Deuces Wild) in Sofia Coppola‘s (Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation) new film, Somewhere.

Pontius was cast in the role of Sammy, who is the best friend to Dorff’s character. The movie is about Dorff, a “bad-boy” actor who lives in West Hollywood and gets a reality check when his eleven year old daughter (played by Elle Fanning, sister of Dakota) shows up. This causes him to completely re-examine his life and how he goes about it.

Pontius wouldn’t strike you as the acting type exactly, as he always comes off as quiet and a little goofy on Jackass, possibly due to a stiff drink or two…or maybe something else. He has, however, done a little acting here and there, playing an Irish henchman in McG’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle; playing Jesus in TV: The Movie; and appearing in a film called What We Do Is Secret.
