A year later, Knoxville and his co-stars returned for the first installment in the Jackass film series, with a second and third installment being released in 20, respectively.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013), the first film in the series with a storyline, saw him star as his Jackass character Irving Zisman.
From having the word "Jackass" sunburnt on his chest to his "Terror Taxi" stunt from the film, "Jackass Number Two," Mc Ghehy frequently put himself in danger and was often the butt of the joke.
He made an appearance on "The Tonight Show" in 2010 with co-star Johnny Knoxville to play a game of real-life operation — electrocution included — and showed up in an episode of "Portlandia" in 2012.

He was arrested in Oklahoma in December 2010 for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, according to TMZ.
When the "big break" he sought eluded him, he decided to create his own opportunities by writing and pitching article ideas to various magazines.
