Steve-O Blows Stunt, Not Coke

4/23/2008 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When Steve-O wasn't eating pavement in Hollywood yesterday -- the "Jackass" told TMZ he'll be pleading not guilty to felony drug possession charges in court later today.


Check back to see if Steve-O does better in front of the judge than he did at landing a 360 shove-it -- we'll be live streaming the whole thing from inside the courtroom starting at 8:30 PST.

Bam: Vito's the New Kobe

8/29/2007 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's hard to be taken seriously when you've got a tattoo of two animals humping on your leg, but former "Jackass" star Bam Margera tried anyway.


TMZ caught the bad boy skateboarder outside of Koi last night, where he had a cute little dinner date with legend Tony Hawk. Bam tore into lawyers going after his uncle, Don Vito, who is accused of fondling three girls between the ages of 13 and 15, during an appearance at a Colorado mall last year. "These small town lawyers, they want to get their names in the paper .... It's like the Kobe Bryant thing," Bam said. The daredevil added, "But it's done now, so cheers to Vito."

What Bam didn't realize is that Don's drama is far from over. Yesterday, Vito was released on bail yesterday after forking over $50 grand, but he's definitely not in the clear. He'll be back in court on October 22, when the trial is scheduled to resume.


Steve-O and Trishelle Play Doctor

8/9/2007 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Is there a doctor in the house? TMZ caught up with Dr. Steve-O and beautiful "Real World" Nurse Trishelle, after their Laugh Factory gig last night. Jackass Steve-O took a page from the Michael Richards book-o-laffs and called himself -- not the audience -- the n-word during his act. "I would never call anybody that word, except myself, man," explained the stoney doofus.


So what's the diagnosis? "Medically speaking, I need to go take some bong hits," said Steve-O, who proved once again, that pot does not make you funny.

Bam Looks Like a Jackass

11/3/2006 3:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Either Bam Margera got caught under a flight of pigeons ... or he's the messiest painter alive.

We aren't sure why Bam rocked the "I just lost a paintball fight" look, but if you saw "Jackass: Number Two," perhaps you can imagine what crazy stunt he attempted that created this splattered fashion faux-pas. Whatever it was, we hope someone caught it on tape.

Bozo the Jackass?

10/23/2006 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Long before Steve-O first stapled his scrotum to his leg, the "Jackass Number 2" star was actually juggling balls -- instead of inflicting pain to them. Seriously.

Steve-O

TMZ has obtained a photo of Steve-O, aka Steven Gilchrist Glover, during his training at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College back in 1997. Steve-O was one of only 33 people accepted into the program to which over 2000 applied. After graduation, Steve-O the Clown went on to an illustrious career as a performer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

Good thing he picked up that stapler.

Steve-O Does Comedy -- Without Injuring Himself

10/18/2006 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steve-OTMZ fav Steve-O is capable of making us laugh in a multitude of ways -- and yes, most of them involve bodily harm. But now Steve-O is taking a crack at a safer form of comedy: stand-up.

"I just had a really big movie come out, and I'm trying to think, 'What do I next?'" Steve-O told the crowd at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood last Friday, where is he is known to take the stage from time to time. "I feel like I'm scrambling for any kind of career other than breaking bones and shoving s**t up my a**."

In his act, he talks about the rap song he recorded with Psychic Realm, which TMZ posted and allowed users to vote on -- 98% of readers thought the song was "dope." But apparently those results could be tainted: "I got all my MySpace friends, I'm like, 'Vote for me! Vote me dope!'"

Steve-O even reads off various comments TMZ readers wrote about him, including, "Steve-O should stick to stapling his balls to his leg."

Seems like he may have a career beyond that now.

Now in Theaters ... "JackBUTT Number Two"

10/2/2006 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently letting leeches suck on your eyeballs and using a human as shark bait doesn't sit well with the people of Orange City, Iowa.

A friend there sent us the picture below with the following account:
Jack
Attached is a picture we took just today at the theater here in Orange City. It appears that someone in the community complained to the theater manager regarding the new "Jackass" movie, so look at how they changed it!!

We're guessing Orange City is the type of city that "Footloose" was based on.

More "Jackass" Than You Can Shake a Stick At

10/2/2006 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Admit it... you just can't get enough of "Jackass." You have every episode of the TV show on DVD and you were first in line to see both "Jackass" flicks. Never fear, there's plenty more where that came from.

An insider at Paramount Studios tells TMZ that they have so much video featuring Chris Pontius, Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera and the whole crew that they will be releasing never before seen scenes straight to DVD on "Jackass 2.5." The studio was also so thrilled with the huge success of "Jackass Number Two" -- which took in $51.5 million in its first two weeks of release -- that they have greenlighted "Jackass Three" and are speeding up production on that release.

Thank god... and you thought you'd have to wait forever to see Steve-O be used for bait.

Viva la Steve-O!

9/29/2006 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ's favorite Jackasser called into the Kevin & Bean radio show on KROQ in Los Angeles this morning and was quite excited about the success of the latest "Jackass" movie.

The movie opened at number one last week with $28 million and Steve-O could not have been happier. "We opened up against three movies that like had $80 million dollar budgets ..." he told Kevin & Bean, before trailing off in laughter.

Steve-O also said he is loving the fame that "Jackass" is bringing. "It's crazy, I don't know if I'll ever be in as many magazines as I am right now."

To which Kevin shot back, "You will be ... when you die."

Lohan Saves a Jackass

8/15/2006 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was Lindsay Lohan to the rescue last night, after "Jackass" star Steve-O was told he was a persona non grata at popular Hollywood hangout Hyde. When bouncers refused to admit the daredevil past the exclusive velvet rope, Steve-O did what any huge star would do. He name dropped, saying "I'm supposed to meet Lindsay Lohan here!" Apparently, the bouncers weren't amused.

After management instructed him to hit the road, Steve-O began texting Lohan, begging for her to help with the situation.

Before the club drama even began, Steve-O gave a staunch defense of Lohan for TMZ's cameras, blasting Paris Hilton and Brandon Davis for their infamous anti-Lindsay rant.

"You know what's disgusting to me is that f*&%-ing billionaire brat, because how much money has he ever made on his own... zero!"

Lohan eventually arrived, entourage in tow, where she only had to whisper a few words to management before pulling Steve-O into the club.

Requests TMZ Exclusive Video

11/4/2005 1:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

steve_o_pot_160x120-1LAPD officials contacted TMZ to request a copy of the video that shows an encounter between two officers and TV personality Steve-O. Internal Affairs now wants to review the tape to determine if the cops acted properly.

TMZ shot the footage Nov 2. at 3AM, outside a trendy Hollywood nightclub. The tape shows the 'Jackass' and 'Wild Boys' star pulling what appears to be marijuana out of a plastic bag, then sniffing it in front of a crowd. Steve-O then approaches the patrol car and an officer says, "We saw you." Steve-O responds, "You saw me with the weed." After a brief exchange, the officers let Steve-O go, no questions asked.
