Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

(2013)

86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companions, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicholl) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.

Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.

Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.

‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Oscar Featurette 'Makeup Effects'

‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’ Oscar Featurette 'Makeup Effects'

When the 86th Annual Academy Awards nominations were announced today, Hollywood heavyweights such as Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey were among the notable snubs, as they failed to earn nods for their performances in Captain Phillips and Lee Daniels' the Butler. However, one of the more surprising nominees this morning was Stephen Prouty for Best Makeup and Hairstyling in the raucous comedy Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, where the 42-year-old Johnny Knoxville was convincingly transformed into the 86-year-old Irving Zisman. To celebrate this prestigious honor, Paramount Home Media Distribution has provided us with a behind-the-scenes featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray release on January 28, that centers on the makeup process Johnny Knoxville had to go through each day, and also features interviews with Johnny Knoxville and the director. Plus, we also have quotes from Johnny Knoxville and makeup artist/Oscar nominee Stephen Prouty who share their thoughts about today's big news.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was released October 25th, 2013.

EXCLUSIVE: Director Jeff Tremaine Talks ‘Bad Grandpa’ and the Future of the Franchise

EXCLUSIVE: Director Jeff Tremaine Talks ‘Bad Grandpa’ and the Future of the Franchise

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was one of last year's big surprise hits, coming out of nowhere to dominate the box office. On its way to over $100 million, the comedy is coming home on Blu-ray January 28th. To usher in the release, we caught up with director Jeff Tremaine, the master chef behind all of the Jackass movies. He let us in on the making of the film itself, some of the challenges it posed and where they plan to go in the future.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is interesting in that it takes a different approach than past films in the Jackass franchise. It sets up a clear narrative, with Johnny Knoxville never breaking character as the 86 year-old Irving Zisman, though most of the interactions seen in the film between him, his on-screen grandson Billy (played by the greatest child actor of his time Jackson Nicoll) and the people around them are completely real. This poses a daunting challenge in building a sequel based once again in this world, with these characters.
