Ryan Dunn

Ryan Matthew Dunn (born June 11, 1977 - June 20, 2011) is an American reality television personality and daredevil best known for being a member of The Jackass Crew, MTV's Viva La Bam, and Homewrecker. A member of the CKY Crew, Dunn played the main character in Bam Margera's film Haggard, which was based on a failed relationship Ryan had experienced. Dunn was born in Medina, Ohio and grew up in Williamsville, New York before moving to West Chester, PA, with his parents in his early teens. Dunn first came into public attention while appearing alongside his friends in the CKY Crew, in four CKY videos. While taping a skit for Jackass: The Movie, Dunn was driving a golf cart with Johnny Knoxville as his passenger. The idea was that he would launch the golf cart over a sandtrap and into a plastic statue of a giant pig, and the statue would simply be crushed. However, the statue did not crush but instead forced the golf cart into the air and it landed upside down.
