Johnny Knoxville Talks 'Jackass 4,' Favorite Movies and That 'Bad Grandpa' Penguin Scene

Bad Grandpa opens in theaters this weekend and as part of the promotion, star Johnny Knoxville participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session earlier today. You can view the full session here, including numerous Jackass stunt questions.

We've pulled three particular highlights from the AMA session pertaining to movies. First, a fan asked about the penguin scene that we see briefly in the trailer.

Q: When you smashed the penguin at the drive-in in Charlotte, were you scared at all by the guy who confronted you? What ended up happening to the penguin?

A: No. Anyone who says that they're going to hit you that many times is not gonna hit you. I think he would have hit me if i hadn't been in makeup, but he was just trying to intimidate an old man. An old man who didnt give a shit. The penguin is probably sitting in a warehouse somewhere.

One fan asked about the future of the Jackass movie franchise. Will we ever see a fourth Jackass movie?

Q: Bad Grandpa was the funniest film I've ever seen. Any plans for a Jackass 4 though?

A: No plans at the moment, but we are open to doing another

Finally, on a larger scope a fan asked Knoxville what his favorite movie ever was. Knoxville broke it down to favorite comedy and his other favorite films.

Q: Favorite movie ever?

A: Favorite comedy - Blazing Saddles. Favorite other film - A Face in the Crowd, Harold and Maude, Cinema Paradiso, Heartworn Highways.
