The death stunned both Johnny and the rest of the Jackass family. In a statement, he said: ‘you’ll have to excuse me, I’m just very sad because I lost my brother and my world got about 134 percent less funny.’
‘I don’t know what to say right now so I will close with I love you, Ryan. I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much.’
But in 2013, Johnny Knoxville returned back to movie screens with Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. The movie ended up being a huge success as it earned over 151 million dollars and cost about 15 million dollars to make.
Since then, he has voiced Leonardo in the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and he’s also the owner and producer at Hello Junior which is a production company that has close ties with Paramount Pictures.
