Ryan Dunn dead at 34

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn, who along with his cast mates made Americans cringe and snicker through vulgar stunts in their multimillion-dollar TV and movie franchise, was killed early Monday in a fiery car crash. He was 34.

Both Dunn and his passenger were severely burned. The passenger was identified late Monday as 30-year-old Zachary Hartwell. Dunn had been more easily identified based on his hair and tattoos.

Dunn's current series, "Proving Ground", had just debuted on the G4 network. The network has placed future episodes on hold while they determine the future of the series.

Dunn's final movie role saw him playing a slacker who returns from the dead as a playful and perverted ghost in "Living Will...". The film was completed in 2010, but has yet to find its way into wide distribution. Now, he might have a chance to make life (or the after-life, I suppose) imitate art.


  1. was he the guy who used his penis as a baseball bat in Jackass 3D?

  2. Dunno... I was actually not a fan of "Jackass", so the fact their latest movie was in 3D was a double the reason to save my money.

    Hopefully, someone will be able to satisfy our curiosity on this point. (As a baseball bat? Ouch.)

    The thing that caught my eye about Dunn being done was the fact he played a ghost in his final role.
