At the age of 18, JOHNNY KNOXVILLE moved his hillbilly ass out to California from his native Tennessee to pursue a career in acting. He supported himself by appearing in commercials and freelance writing jobs for such magazines as Blunt, Bikini, and Big Brother. In 1998, Knoxville teamed up with Jeff Tremaine of Big Brother, and the two went on to create and produce the cultural blight forever known as "jackass.”

From the notoriety and success of the MTV series "jackass” and feature film of the same name, Knoxville finally graduated to a series of big screen roles. He recently starred as Luke Duke in "The Dukes of Hazzard” and appeared in "Daltry Calhoun,” "Lords of Dogtown,” and "The Ringer.” Prior to that, he starred in John Waters' ensemble comedy, "A Dirty Shame” opposite Tracey Ullman, Chris Isaak, and Selma Blair, and in the action film "Walking Tall.” Knoxville's upcoming films include "Killshot,” based on the Elmore Leonard novel.

Despite becoming a big-time Hollywood movie star, Knoxville never lost his taste for the ridiculous and frequently tagged along with Chris Pontius and Steve-O on the MTV show "Wildboyz,” as they traveled to the furthest stretches of the globe to make merry and act ugly. Ultimately, the reckless enthusiasm displayed by Knoxville on one such "Wildboyz” excursion to Russia was the catalyst for making a sequel to the first "jackass” film.
