Hi, Bryan Here….
Talking with Johnny Knoxville for the very brief moment that I did was very satisfying. He’s a lot of fun and did a great job with Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘The Last Stand‘. As a matter of fact, Knoxville was one of the best parts of that movie. I had the opportunity to talk with the stuntman and ‘Jackass’ star for a couple of minutes and unlike most people I did not ask him about the upcoming ‘Jackass 4‘. I wanted to know what it was like working with one of his heroes, which is director John Waters.
John Waters is most known for directing bizarre and vulgar films such as the infamous ‘Pink Flamingos‘ and ‘Female Trouble‘. However, he did make the original ‘Hairspray‘, ‘Pecker‘, and ‘A Dirty Shame‘, which starred Knoxville and Tracy Ullman. Waters has also been a part of the ‘Jackass’ films from time to time. So of course Knoxville had nothing but great things to say about Waters.
We also talked about working with Schwarzenegger in ‘The Last Stand’ to which Knoxville definitely wants to work with him again. Who knows, maybe he’ll join the next ‘Jackass’ film for a segment. How cool would that be?
Bryan Kluger: Hi Johnny.
Johnny Knoxville: Hi.
BK: Great film.
JK: Thank you so much.
BK: What was it like working with John Waters and having a role in his film ‘A Dirty Shame’?
JK: I love john Waters. He’s brilliant. He’s the most intelligent, sweetest pervert on the planet.
BK: I agree.
JK: He’s one of my heroes.
BK: Would you want to work with Arnold again and will there possibly be a sequel?
JK: I’d love to work with Arnold again. That’s like two of my biggest heroes I got to work with. Tell the studio you want a sequel.
It’s a short interview yes, but both Knoxville and Schwarzenegger were pressed for time as they were flying out within in matter of arriving to another city for a different screening. Hopefully next go around, we will have more time. But it seemed like they both had a great time making the film and Knoxville might just be the best sidekick to Arnold yet. Enjoy the short video interview below.
