Johnny Knoxville: Star Reflecting On Ryan Dunn's Death As He Prepares For Release Of New Comedy, 'Fun Size'

Johnny Knoxville is preparing for the release of his new Halloween-centered comedy film, Fun Size, but the noted prankster and funnyman is also reflecting on the death of his friend, Ryan Dunn.

After making a speech at a memorial service for Dunn, Johnny Knoxville told Twitter followers this week that he was visiting the grave of his friend and fellow Jackass star, Hollywood.com noted. Knoxville has rarely spoken about his friend’s death, but shared on Twitter his recent visit to Dunn’s grave in Pennsylvania.

Johnny Knoxville wrote:

“We just visited Ryan’s grave out in Brecksville. Was glad to see he has had many people coming by to visit.”

Though he still has a heavy heart for his friend, who died in a high-speed car crash after spending an evening at a bar last year, Johnny Knoxville does have an exciting week ahead. He appears in Fun Size, a teenage comedy centered on Halloween hijinks.

The movie is the film debut for director Josh Schwartz, the creator of many hit television shows including Gossip Girl, The O.C., and Chuck.

The movie’s star, Victoria Justice, told Us Weekly that Fun Size will remind viewers of the teenage comedies of the 1980s.

Justice said Fun Size is “in the realm of a John Hughes film. There are not that many films out there that are a great teen comedy that represent what teens are going through … it has some heartwarming moments as well.”

Johnny Knoxville made an impression on his co-stars in Fun Size. Justice noted that Knoxville is “one of the most down-to-earth guys I’ve ever met. He’s so cool!”

    Poor Ryan Dunn.Impressionable kid who got mixed up with the wrong crowd and got handed a whole bunch of money too early.

    It's hard to feel much sympathy for someone who gets drunk and then puts his life and others lives at risk by deciding to drive.

    You people aren't very compassionate, he lost a friend reguardless of the circumstances, it's not like you haven't drunk and driven before or had friends that have, how would you like it if people showed the same comments to a late friend like some of the ones I've read here, I feel sorry for you, on second thought know I don't cause you'll reap what you write someday.

    Not shedding any tears for drunks on the road, sorry. You have a death wish every time you drink and drive and if you die…so be it. Too bad for the other person, they didn't have a choice.

    Thank you for your reply Gerald. No question they seem like nice guys and any loss of life is a tragedy, it just makes me angry that he did something so stupid. He killed himself and a friend and put everyone else on the road at risk that night all because he decided to drink and drive.
