Read The Story Below
According to a report in TMZ (and later confirmed by Bam Margera’s mother), Jackass star Ryan Dunn has died, following a grisly, early-morning car crash where Dunn’s Porsche slammed into a tree and burst into flames in West Goshen, Pennsylvania. An unidentified passenger was also killed.
Dunn had posted a picture of himself drinking with friends just two hours before the accident. He was 34.
Ryan Dunn Also Appeared In Many Other Roles
Ryan Dunn not only did some crazy stunts for Jackass but he also appeared in many other roles. It looks like Dunn was started to take the same patch that Johnny Knoxville took by expanding his acting skills to many television sitcoms and also hosting G4 television.
Still, Dunn was a real person (as was the passenger who died with him), so instead of focusing on the details of his death, let’s talk about his life. In addition to performing on all seasons of the Jackass TV show and its three movies, Dunn was a regular presence on Margera’s shows Viva La Bam, Bam’s Unholy Union, and Bam’s World Domination, and he solo hosted Homewrecker, a home improvement series where renovations were motivated solely by revenge. On all of these, Dunn proved himself totally game for anything and everything—a merry prankster of the first order, with a genuine “fuck it” attitude and a deadpan, self-effacing humor that made him seem like a genuinely fun guy to hang out with.
Dunn also acted, starring in the Margera-directed films Haggard—which was based on Dunn’s real-life experience with his cheating ex-girlfriend—and Minghags, as well as the films Blonde Ambition, Street Dreams, and Living Will.
He also appeared in a small role on Law And Order: SVU in 2008. Dunn’s last film appearances were in this year’s drama Close-Up and the quasi-sequel Jackass 3.5, while his final completed roles in Welcome To The Bates Motel and Booted have yet to be seen. Most recently, Dunn debuted in G4’s Proving Ground, where he and co-host Jessica Chobot attempt to replicate action scenes from movies, TV shows, and video games. The show premiered just last week; it’s unclear yet what will happen to it in the wake of Dunn’s death.
