Jackass gets serious?

05.20.2009

JACKASS star Chris Pontius (perhaps best known as his alter ego "Party Boy") has signed on to star in the upcoming Sofia Coppola flick SOMEWHERE. Pontius will co-star with Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning in the story of an out-of-control actor living at the Chateau Marmont who wakes up one day to find an 11-year-old girl claiming to be his daughter. Pontius will star as Dorff's best friend and presumed partner-in-crime in the film who may or may not rip of his tearaway pants to reveal a thong and torture Asian shop owners.

Pontius has scant acting experience (he was a goon in CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE) but has some connections to Coppola. He's friends with director Spike Jonze who co-created "Jackass" and was once married to Coppola. How that translates into a starring role remains to be seen. Filming on SOMEWHERE is set to begin this summer.

Extra Tidbit: Pontius once wrote an article titled "18 Ways to be an Asshole."
