Darby Allin Clears Up 'Jackass Forever' Rumors, Did Pitch A Stunt For The Movie

In 2021, Darby Allin was listed on IMDB as appearing in "Jackass Forever." Allin had previously expressed interest in being in the film and had talked to Steve-O about things.

Allin had to take to social media to shoot the report of an appearance down, saying he was not in the film. "Jackass Forever" premiered in February 2022, and Allin was absent from the film.

Speaking to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Allin cleared up the reports of him being in the film.

"I was filming with Steve-O. Remember that skit where I was in a body bag and I went down this drop-in and right into flat. Yeah, so Steve-O was video taping that and he sent it to (Johnny) Knoxville and (Jeff) Tremaine, he was like, ‘Yo, we gotta get this guy in the new movie.’ By then all contracts had already settled and everything like that. I told them, ‘Yo, I’ll do it for free. I just want to have fun.’ So I guess that’s where it stemmed from. People probably think just hanging out with Steve-O, it’s automatically gonna be in Jackass type deal. But it was fun. Maybe it’s a good thing I wasn’t in the movie," he said.

Darby continued, revealing the stunt he wanted to do if he was in the film.

"I had this idea, There’s this thing called the Mega Ramp, it’s at Bob Burnquist’s house. It has the biggest gap, like ramp. I pitched to Steve-O, ‘Put me in a body bag, duct tape me to a skateboard and send me down that.’ I was gonna do the jump for the movie. That was my stunt I had planned for Jackass 4. Maybe it’s a good thing that didn’t happen because who knows how that would have panned out," he said.

Allin has been put in a bodybag and tossed and dragged around on live AEW television and in vignettes filmed that have aired before matches.

When asked if he would take part in a potential "Jackass" reboot of the TV series, Allin replied, "It all depends, man. It all depends on where I’m at with my career because AEW is my big focal point. That’s my big thing. So it all depends on how scheduling and everything works out. If it worked out scheduling wise, who knows? Right now there’s a lot of goals I have outside the ring. Mount Everest is probably the biggest one I would say at the moment and that’s set for next year. You can only hike it two months out of the year, April and May, so I’ve gotta wait until next April and May. It takes ten weeks to climb it. So I’ll be gone for ten weeks."

As the conversation continued, Allin provided more detail on his desire to climb Mount Everest and how it could benefit AEW. Fans can watch the full interview in the video above.

Allin is set to challenge for the AEW World Championship at AEW Double or Nothing in the Four Way Pillars bout. Reigning champion MJF will defend against Allin, "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, and Sammy Guevara.
