Johnny Knoxville Remembers Late ‘Jackass’ Co-star Ryan Dunn


Vibe / June 28, 2011

The void left by the passing of Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn is still being felt by cast members. Johny Knoxville, one of the show’s break-out stars wrote a blogpost expressing grievance for his late friend.

Johnny said: “You’ll have to excuse me, I’m just very sad because I lost my brother and my world got about 134 per cent less funny. I don’t know what else to say right now, so I will close with I love you, Ryan. I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much.”

“He had such a hair trigger laugh reflex. He lived his life wanting to laugh and wanting you to laugh with him. He would cackle really loud, too, and it wasn’t uncommon that he would fall over from it. “Sometimes I would fall with him because his spirit was very contagious. He was always there if you were sad about something. That’s why all this is even harder because right now I really need to talk to him but I can’t.”

Ryan’s close friend Zachary Hartwell was also killed in the crash and a memorial service for Ryan was held last week, which Johnny attended.
