An alumni of the Big Brother Magazine school of skateboarding that also includes such esteemed graduates as Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, and Spike Jonze, shaggy-haired stuntman Chris Pontius wandered the world in search of adventure before gaining fame as a core member of the notorious Jackass crew. Driven by a constant need to explore the world and have fun in the process, Pontius turned his travel obsession into a career when, in the early '90s, be began documenting his journeys in a series of hilariously ruttish reports originally published in Big Brother Magazine. Despite the fact that Big Brother was first and foremost a skateboarding publication, the magazine ultimately proved the perfect vehicle for Pontius' irreverent voice, and before long the worldly writer had formed a fairly close bond with editor Jeff Tremaine. When the crew from that totalitarian-titled skateboard rag decided to take their outrageous stunt show to television, adventurous Pontius seemed the perfect fit to become a key member of the core Jackass crew. Of course, it didn't take long for Jackass to gain infamy when it premiered on MTV in 2000, and in addition to appearing on the instantly popular program, Pontius also joined forces with the similar-minded CKY crew that included Bam Margera, Brandon DiCamillo, Ryan Dunn, and Chris Raab, with everyone eventually becoming something of an extended family. A feature-film version of Jackass followed when the show went off the air in a whirlwind of controversy after only two years, and in 2003, Pontius tried his hand at fiction with a supporting role in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. In 2003, Pontius teamed up with similar-minded Jackass co-star Steve-O for the outrageous nature program Wildboyz, and after tempting all sorts of predators in their natural habitat with few hospital trips to speak of, it was time to join Knoxville and company back on the big screen for Jackass: Number Two in 2006.
