Chris Pontius: Life before Jackass

Before he turned 18, Pontius started working for the skate magazine Big Brother, where he remained until 1999 when he was let go for not showing up for a tour without notice.

But after several minor jobs, he got back to the magazine eventually joining Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine and contributor Johnny Knoxville with the Jackass crew in 2000.

Chris Pontius’ Jackass legacy

His trademark beaming smile and off-handed joking ways made him the most popular among Jackass stars, which ultimately led to his own series, Wildboyz (MTV/MTV2, 2003-06). In addition to the above, Pontius made occasional forays into acting, including in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere (2010).
