Ryan Dunn - Ryan Dunn To Be Remembered In Spike Jonze Special

Ryan Dunn will be remembered by his Jackass co-stars in a one hour television special, set to air on Mtv on November 28, 2011. The stuntman and daredevil was killed in a drunk-driving crash earlier this year, which also killed his passenger at the time, according to The Wrap.
The show, co-produced by filmmaker Spike Jonze, will follows Dunn's early years growing up in Ohio, through to his Jackass days during which he made a name for himself recklessly driving golf karts and downing an entire bottle of tequila in 40 seconds. The special will include interviews with his compatriots Johnny Knoxville, Wee Man, Chris Pontius and best friend, Bam Margera. In a statement, Jackass helmsman Knoxville said, "It's a surreal thing to undertake, doing a tribute to our brother Ryan's life. I still can't believe he's gone but we wouldn't trust anyone else with this, so we are doing the best we can for Ryan, his family, friends, and everyone who loved him". Dunn, who had notched up 23 driving citations at the time of his death, was killed in West Goshen in June when his Porsche 911 crashed into a tree and burst into flames. Authorities later determined Ryan's blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit and that he was driving at a speed of between 132mph to 140mph.
In addition to the special, Mtv will also air never-seen-before footage of Dunn's antics on Viva LA Bam and Jackass.
