MTV has put together a tribute to Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who was killed in a drunk driving car crash this June along with friend and Jackass crew member Zachary Hartwell. Airing Nov. 28, the one-hour program will focus on Dunn’s life growing up in Ohio and his rise to fame on Jackass. Co-stars Johnny Knoxville, Rob Dyrdek, Wee Man, Chris Pontius, Jeff Tremaine, and Bam Margera will tell stories about Dunn’s life, and the network will air footage of Dunn’s stunts for Jackass and Viva LA Bam that have never been seen before.
Directly before the broadcast at 10:30 p.m. EST, MTV will also premiere an all-new episode of Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness, guest starring Dunn in one of his final television appearances. A special encore presentation of Jackass 3.5 will follow “It’s a surreal thing to undertake, doing a tribute to our brother Ryan’s life,” said Knoxville, who is also executive producing the special with Spike Jonze and Derek Freda. “I still can’t believe he’s gone but we wouldn’t trust anyone else with this, so we are doing the best we can for Ryan, his family, friends, and everyone who loved him.”
