Jackass Forever welcomed Sean ‘Poopies’ McInerney, Jasper Dolphin, Eric Manaka, Zach Holmes, Rachel Wolfson and Compston ‘Dark Shark’ Wilson to the beloved franchise, and these new faces have certainly held their own against the veteran, original jackass team.

We never said whether or not it was [the final film]. That’s written somewhere and people walked away with it.
