Jackass Sued Over Mousetrap Stunt
First of all, I'd want to see the cash upfront before I put my you-know-who in a mousetrap.
Second, how could Perry Caravello claim that he didn't know the stunt was being filmed? That's the whole point of Jackass.
Third, when you are filmed putting your aforementioned junk in a mousetrap, it will end up on the Internet: it's a natural law.
Fourth, ouch! Don't put your you-know-what in a dang mousetrap!
I hope that you really need me to tell you about that last point.
Jackass star Johnny Knoxville is being sued by an actor for $10.5m (£5.3m) over claims that he was not paid for doing a stunt which left him injured.
Perry Caravello alleges that Knoxville, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and radio star Adam Corolla, promised him $10m to put his genitals in a mousetrap.
The legal action also claims he was humiliated when footage of the incident appeared on the internet.
Knoxville, Kimmel and Corolla have yet to comment on the allegations.
Mr Caravello claims that TV star Kimmel failed to pay him for his work on the 2003 film Windy City Heat.
He also contends that Knoxville promised payment for promoting the film's DVD release on Corolla's radio show on the condition that he performed the mousetrap stunt.
Legal papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court stated that the actor "agreed to do so and, much to his emotional tranquillity(sic) and to his physical harm, was severely injured when the trap literally went on his manhood".
He also said that the stunt was filmed without his permission, while the three men failed to pay him or provide an account of profits and royalties from DVD sales of the film.
