Darby Allin Reveals The Stunt He Wanted To Do If He Had The Chance To Appear On ‘Jackass Forever’
Darby Allin was teased to appear in the film ‘Jackass Forever’ in 2021.
In February of 2022, Allin shot down the idea that he was in the film, but he was able to give context on what happened on both ends.
Speaking to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Allin cleared up the reports of him being in the film.
“I was filming with Steve-O. Remember that skit where I was in a body bag and I went down this drop-in and right into flat. Yeah, so Steve-O was video taping that and he sent it to (Johnny) Knoxville and (Jeff) Tremaine, he was like, ‘Yo, we gotta get this guy in the new movie.’ By then all contracts had already settled and everything like that. I told them, ‘Yo, I’ll do it for free. I just want to have fun.’ So I guess that’s where it stemmed from. People probably think just hanging out with Steve-O, it’s automatically gonna be in Jackass type deal. But it was fun. Maybe it’s a good thing I wasn’t in the movie,” he said.
Darby continued, revealing the stunt he wanted to do if he was in the film.
“I had this idea, There’s this thing called the Mega Ramp, it’s at Bob Burnquist’s house. It has the biggest gap, like ramp. I pitched to Steve-O, ‘Put me in a body bag, duct tape me to a skateboard and send me down that.’ I was gonna do the jump for the movie. That was my stunt I had planned for Jackass 4. Maybe it’s a good thing that didn’t happen because who knows how that would have panned out,” he said.
Allin has been put in a bodybag and tossed and dragged around on live AEW television and in vignettes filmed that have aired before matches.
When asked if he would take part in a potential “Jackass” reboot of the TV series, Allin replied, “It all depends, man. It all depends on where I’m at with my career because AEW is my big focal point. That’s my big thing. So it all depends on how scheduling and everything works out. If it worked out scheduling wise, who knows? Right now there’s a lot of goals I have outside the ring. Mount Everest is probably the biggest one I would say at the moment and that’s set for next year. You can only hike it two months out of the year, April and May, so I’ve gotta wait until next April and May. It takes ten weeks to climb it. So I’ll be gone for ten weeks.”
Allin is set to challenge for the AEW World Championship at AEW Double or Nothing in the Four Way Pillars bout between champion MJF vs. Allin vs. “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Sammy Guevara.
