I was surprised to hear the accidental news that Bam Margera will not be in Jackass 4! What surprised me, even more, is that there will be Jackass 4. I grew up with Jackass, Skating and Video Games. I was a big fan of Bam and Jackass in general. But at this point, considering that all of the stars aged a lot, I don’t think the movie has the same vibe as before. Bam not being in it is another huge nail in the coffin.
I’m not fully blaming this on the producers as Bam had his problems but I do think that there is more story than we know. One can hope that things will get sorted out and the movie will capture at least some of the formal spirit.
