In an August 2014 video interview with Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds, Bam Margera (of “Jackass” fame) revealed that Hinds played the part of the late Ryan Dunn, a fellow Jackass star who passed away in a 2011 car accident, in a film.
Said Margera in his interview with Hinds:
“He just did the movie ‘I Needed Time to Stay Useless.’ He’s playing Ryan Dunn and he did an awesome fucking job.”
In our interview with Margera, he told us a bit about the new movie:
“It’s basically the entire story of my life. Skating, turning pro, Jackass happens, then I get burnt. Music comes into play, then I got to jail.”
Brent Hinds appeared in a comedic clip in 2011 for Elmyr Pharmaceutical, based around the Mexican restaurant in his hometown of Atlanta, GA, so Hinds knows his way in front of a camera. No release date has been set for “I Needed Time to Stay Useless.”
