In a new interview with NMEhe goes on to detail the cast’s fears and stunts they absolutely wouldn’t do.
“I don’t like cold weather or cold water,” he said, adding: “I did things in cold weather and cold water, but it was just a hassle.”
He said of his co-star Steve-O: “He would let you put a hook in his mouth, swim into the ocean and then release him into the sea to catch a shark with his body. , you can do it with him, but we tried to get him to bungee jump and he said, ‘Fuck you, I’m not.’ “
Knoxville, who has worked in the franchise for over 20 years, has suffered multiple injuries including fractures and 16 concussions. However, after brain hemorrhage in the latest movie, he says he plans to give up the “big stunts”.
“We reload my best stunts at the end of the movie,” Knoxville said. “So I have two or three more stunts to do, big stunts, but after that, I can’t.”
He added, “When I was in this movie, I knew it would be the last time I did the big stunts.”
Jackass Forever marks the franchise’s sixth film. The films are spin-offs of the hit MTV show of the same name.
