• Johnny Knoxville as Irving Zisman
• Jackson Nicoll as Billy
Knoxville revealed that he and director Jeff
Tremaine had been approached on making a
film featuring the Irving Zisman character,
but held off as they did not feel that a plot
consisting of pranking the public would be
able to carry an entire film. Eventually,
Tremaine and Knoxville came up with a story
to structure the pranks around. The first
scene shot featured Irving enraging golfers
on a Columbus, Ohio course, where he was
working as a groundskeeper. "At that point
all of my hesitancy just washed away,"
Knoxville said. "We got so much funny stuff
that we knew we had something special."
The Irving Zisman makeup took three
hours to apply to Knoxville. Five hours were
needed for scenes requiring Knoxville to re-
move his shirt. Jackson Nicoll was cast as
Billy, Irving Zisman's grandson. Knoxville cast
Nicoll after working with him on the 2012
film Fun Size. "Jackson would just follow me
on the set and verbally assault me while hit-
ting me in the zipper," Knoxville said. "I was
just shaking my head thinking that this kid is
a piece of work. He's unbelievable. I think he
was sent from heaven."
In March 2012, Knoxville discussed the possibility of a fourth Jackass movie, say-
ing "we're keeping our mind open" and "I've got 50--60 ideas on top of all the stuff
we didn't get to shoot." Then in June 2012, it was reported that Paramount regis-
tered several domains for a film that would be called Jackass 4: Bad Grandpa. Dur-
ing Margera's September 18, 2012 interview on The Howard Stern Show about
Jackass he said: "There's going to be a whole movie about Knoxville's grandpa
character." The film was officially announced on July 17, 2013, and is set for re-
lease in Trinidad on October 30, 2013.
RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 30
Turning 40 fearlessly
What do Men really want is an
age-old question that the cast of
FEARLESS40: Commentary in
Motion will attempt to answer as
they take to the stage tomorrow.
The production is a series of Monologues
written by media personality Odeka O'Neil-
Seaton who is celebrating her entry to the
stage 20 years after working in the media.
O'Neil-Seaton, who turns 40 on September 9,
took the decision to put on the production at
this juncture in her life to give others like her-
self, a forum to share, vent and be entertained
by life's journey at 40 and beyond.
O'Neil-Seaton has personally challenged
herself to face the realities of life after 40 as
she admits, like most women, she hid her true
age for many years.
"I remember entering the media in my early
20s and because at that time there was the
perception that a news presenter should be of
a mature age I hid the fact for many years. I
remember for three years I was 27 and I was
33 for a couple more years straight until I ac-
tually forgot my real age," she said. But now
that age 40 is fast approaching O'Neil-Seaton
has started to panic.
"I had to do some introspection and ques-
tion what I was really experiencing. But then
when I recognise that I am proud of all that I
have accomplished, scars and all, I realise that
I am not fearful but fearless."
O'Neil-Seaton then took some time to de-
cide what she could do to mark the occasion.
"Four years ago when I left the media and
was in transition as an entrepreneur and phi-
lanthropist I found myself writing for hours
several pieces about relationships and my
own self-discovery. At the time I wrote the
monologues with the intention of producing a
production. But I realize now, four years later,
that was not the time. I still had personal and
professional work to do to be able to speak
the truth with conviction on the topics."
After four years working independently she
now has a new confidence, personally and
professionally, and decided to celebrate turn-
ing 40 by speaking out and commenting on
matters that affect men and women of her
The cast of FEARLESS 40: Commentary in
