After the “Jackass” TV show came the superb trio of films as well as a host of spinoffs. Aside from Jackass, Dunn also hosted Homewrecker and Proving Ground and appeared in feature films such as Street Dreams and Blonde Ambition, as well as in Margera's films Haggard: The Movie and Minghags: The Movie.
