There was a time not to long ago when MTV presented the world with an ensemble of characters who made millions of fans (and millions of dollars) by impaling themselves with objects and putting themselves through a lot of bodily harm in order to get reactions from their viewers. The show in question is the iconic Johnny Knoxville lead Jackass, which has gone on to become a cultural phenomenon which spawned tons of copycat versions, yet there was nothing that compared to the original.

Jackass alumni Bam Margera was an integral part of the magic that made people fall in love with their antics. And honestly, the whole cast were friends putting their bodies through the ultimate tests and all came together to win over audiences and fans. Though at the time of its greatest popularity critics of the series (and movies) questioned exactly what was the point of these men, all in or around their thirties, performing such extreme stunts just for a moment in the spotlight.

At the time of the movie's debut website Empire questioned the premise of the film by writing;

What does it say about popular culture when a movie starring five Oscar nominees and based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is royally trounced at the US box office by footage of nine jerk-offs with an irrational fascination with each other’s testicles? We’re not sure, but Jackass: Number Two says it loud and clear.

The popularity of the show and the movies began to wane a bit after the second film, and then the ultimate tragedy took place when cast member Ryan Dunn died in a car crash in 2011.

Margera and Dunn were very close friends, and after he died Margera slid down a very destructive path which included drugs and despair. In recent years his trials and tribulations have been well documented, yet things were the worse in 2019. Distractify reports;

It looks like Bam is on the mend after his talk with Dr. Phil in September. Bam seemed to want to get better because of his son, Phoenix. "He's perfect. I can't even put it into words. Like, I would dive into any train or anything and get stabbed or shot or whatever just to make sure he didn't," Bam told Dr. Phil.

Margera has been working hard to mend his relationship with his family (with Dr. Phil's help), but would he be down to be a part of the new Jackass movie, scheduled for a 2021 air date?

From Distracify;

Bam hasn't commented on the fourth Jackass movie (slated for March 5, 2021), so it's unclear whether he (or the OG cast including Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ehren McGhehey, Preston Lacy, and Jason "Wee Man" Acuña) will return.

Also, the entire cast is way older than they were when they did Jackass almost twenty years ago, and honestly they were pretty old then. And team lead Knoxville seems to have moved on from that time in his life, according to co-star Steve-O.

"The Jackass 4 question...I just felt that Knoxville, for some reason, just wasn't up for it. Then there's the health of certain people, which I think is a concern as well. Of course, there's our age. Maybe the ship has sailed, but I can't say with certainty that I feel that way anymore."

As for Margera, he's yet to comment on his rumored involvement with any future iterations of Jackass.
