Knoxville Enjoys Booze Up During Filming

Funnyman JOHNNY KNOXVILLE is amazed he managed to last the distance on new movie THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, because he was constantly binge drinking throughout the hectic filming schedule.

The former JACKASS star blames the liberal opening hours of bars in Baton Rouge for making him increase his alcohol consumption rather then learn his lines.

He says, "My liver suffered greatly. There were a lot of bars in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where we filmed most of it. And they're not strict on closing the bars so I ended up staying a lot of times."
