don’t ever call Johnny Knoxville retarded
Self-proclaimed “Jackass��? Johnny Knoxville has done some pretty stupid things in his life, but don’t ever call him retarded. Pretending to be a Special Olympics competitor in the Farrelly Bros flick, The Ringer, (opens this Friday) Knoxville tells the January issue of Maxim magazine that he’s found a new respect for the mentally challenged: “I don’t want to sound like some politically correct old fart, but we cast real mentally challenged actors in the film, and they really hate the word retarded,��? Knoxville explains to Maxim. “They have an affliction, but they’re very sharp….Aside from Steve-O, I’d never really been around mentally challenged people before, so I was intimidated.��?

So, where do you think this "Jack-ass of a guy" gets his inspiration? Let's just say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree..."My dad is definitely off the rocker, but in the best way. Like, one time I was asleep on the couch, and I felt something in my mouth. As i woke up, there was Dad sipping up his pants and holding a microwaved hot dog. Another time he sent my friends letters from the "Health Department" saying they'd contracted a venereal disease, and they'd have to come in and list their last 10 partners. The funny thing was...people actually did."

But if his film career doesn’t pan out, Knoxville might take a shot at the (gasp!?!) literary world: “I’ve started writing a novel, but when you hear about an actor writing a novel, you want to shoot yourself…I would like to go back to writing, but whiskey always gets in the way. I ruined myself on Tennessee whiskey by the time I was 15. Whiskey usually brings out the best or worst in me.��?
