On October 25, the world will get to re-meet Johnny Knoxville’s Irving Zisman in the new, feature-length movie, “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” And though the premiere is still a week away, we’ve got an exclusive clip to tide you over.
In a departure from the Jackass bunch’s usual M.O., the movie is a mix of scripted scenes and staged pranks with actual people. So viewers will be treated to the usual insane array of over-the-top, body-busting pranks. But in between, the plot follows Zisman as he travels cross-country with his grandson Billy, who has to live with his father once his mother is arrested.
In MTV News’ exclusive scene, we get to see Zisman and Lil’ Zisman stopping for snacks on the road — and things go very, very wrong. First, Zisman teaches Billy to stuff food in his pants, and then the duo proceed to walk out of the market — despite being chased by a real-life, really antagonized shopworker. Zisman, as you can imagine, doesn’t respond very well.
Though this scene highlights Knoxville’s Irving Zisman, fans should look forward to a scene-stealing turn from Jackson Nicoll as Billy. Nicoll may only be 9 years old, but Knoxville fell in love with the young actor on the set of 2012’s “Fun-Size,” where he kept pace with the famously dirty Knoxville, even out-grossing the Jackass King at points.
“Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” hits theaters on October 25.
