Johnny Knoxville has a been a very, very “Bad Grandpa.”
Child endangerment, shoplifting, casket-toppling and one horribly inappropriate kiddie beauty pageant dance routine are just some of the highlights in this new trailer for the upcoming “Jackass Presents” offering, which sees Knoxville pranking the general public once again by dressing up like an old man and then doing terrible things with his sweet-faced “grandson” (Jackson Nicoll) in tow.
The “bad grandpa” character in question (name: Irving Isman) was previously featured as a recurring character in the “Jackass” TV series, though here he’s tasked with anchoring an entire movie. Can the character successfully translate to the big-screen a la “Borat”? Who knows, but the trailer, at least, is very funny.
