Celebrity Birthday of the Day – July 16

In his own words, Chris Pontius’ job on the Jackass TV series and subsequent films is “to be naked.” Born in Pasadena, California, Pontius took up skateboarding at an early age and appeared in early issues of Big Brother Magazine, which led to him meeting Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine and contributor Johnny Knoxville. Together with a bunch of other daredevils, they formed the Jackass crew, making three seasons of their TV series and three movies (five, if you include the bonus direct-to-DVD movies Jackass 2.5 and Jackass 3.5). Pontius also hosted Wildboyz with his Jackass co-star Steve-O, and oddly enough appeared in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle as an Irish dock worker! Chris Pontius turns 38 today.
