People grew tired of Jackass’ antics long ago so it was time to change the game. How did they do that? Johnny Knoxville dresses up like a grandpa and takes a kid to pranks with him. It’s perfect.
It’s much tougher to get mad at an old people because you assume he’s just an adorable senile old man. I had a soon-to-be-doctor tell me this weekend that she doesn’t get mad when the crazy old guys grab her ass at the hospital. Right…crazy like a fox. Throw in a little kid and you can get away with just about anything.
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 Nicoll) 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.
