Jackass Star Dead in Car Crash

A bit of sad news for you all today; when you woke up this morning, the world had one less Jackass. Ryan Dunn, star of MTV’s hit television series Jackass and later the trilogy of films with the same title, died in a car crash Monday morning at around 3 a.m., TMZ is reporting. Dunn’s death, as well as that of another passenger in the car, have been confirmed by the mother of Dunn’s Jackass costar Bam Margera.

The thirty-four-year-old Dunn had reportedly been drinking earlier that evening.

Dunn appeared in a number of Jackass sketches, most notably one in which he inserted a toy car into his anus (and later had it x-rayed by a confused doctor). He also participated in what’s sometimes called the most disgusting Jackass stunt: he jumped into a tank of raw sewage for a swim.

Dunn also made appearances on MTV’s series Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union (both starring Margera), and earlier this year made an appearance on MTV’s game show Minute to Win It.

Jackass 3.5, which was just released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 14, had Dunn fresh in people’s minds, meaning that media spheres such as Twitter and Facebook will be full of mourning users. Dunn’s Jackass co-star Johnny Knoxville has yet to comment on this tragedy.
