'Jackass' Star Bam Margera Has Returned To TV And He Is Almost Unrecognizable
Former MTV star Bam Margera has returned to our television screens again, this time on Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn, and his appearance is anything but what we were used to seeing back in his Jackass hey-day.
In promotional shots for the show Bam, standing next to his mother, = is almost unrecognizable, sporting a thick beared and a slightly heavier frame.
The 36 year-old pro-skateboarder and reality television stunt man has never denied his trouble with addiction especially ever since he lost his best friend and fellow Jackass star Ryan Dunn in a devastating car accident five years ago.
The reality show will see Bam joined by other troubled stars such as Michael Lohan (Lindsay Lohan's father) in a dry house as they live together for several weeks trying to clean their act up.
In a clip posted to Us, Bam speaks to Lohan about Dunn's accident; how it drove him to drink and how it still profoundly affects him today.
“I never had anybody, anybody, that I cared about die — I didn’t know what the hell it was like. Then all of a sudden, my best friend dies — like, what the f*c-k? What do you do now?’ Well, I went on a drinking bender.”
Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn will be Bam's first television appearance since MTV's Jackass 3D in 2010.
