Ahead of the release of Jackass Forever next month, the team has shared a video introducing some of the newest additions to the cast.
Alongside the returning members of the Jackass family, the fourth entry in the movie series introduces Sean “Poopies” McInerney, Zach “Zackass” Holmes, Rachel Wolfson, Eric Manaka, and Jasper Dolphin of Odd Future fame, among others. In the newly released clip, which was first shared by Uproxx, the fresh faces detailed their excitement at getting to work with the legendary Johnny Knoxville & Co.
Speaking with director Jeff Tremaine, Jasper said when he first got a call for the movie he thought, “Hopefully I don’t die.” Wolfson, the first woman to get into the official Jackass biz, said, “They made me laugh so hard and I’m literally seeing childhood heroes of mine come to life.”
In addition to the new cast members, there’s also a number of notable names behind the camera. Eric Andre and Sarah Sherman, who joined the cast of Saturday Night Live last year, are credited as writers.
The rest of the beloved Jackass crew is returning, with the exception of Ryan Dunn and Bam Margera, who was fired earlier this year. The troubled actor and skater filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures last year over allegations of “inhumane treatment” related to Jackass Forever. He also accused Knoxville, Tremaine, and writer-producer Spike Jonze of forcing him to sign a “draconian sobriety contract.”
