Jackass’ Chris Pontius is moving up in the world, at least in the eyes of most straight-laced, elitist types. The thirty-four year old daredevil/ exhibitionist/ personal hero of mine has signed on for Sofia Coppola’s new dramedy Somewhere. I’m all for producing subtle, sophisticated art like Lost In Translation every now and again--you know-- as long as it doesn’t come at the expense of Jackass’ Three, Four, Five, And Six.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Party Boy will play the best friend of Stephen Dorff. What this character’s name might be or how much screen time he might eat up are reasonable questions you might pose, but the answers are still blowing in the wind of Sofia Coppola’s neurons. I can tell you the general plot outline though. Dorff is a debaucherous actor who reexamines his life after his eleven year old daughter stops by his residence at the Chateau Marmont, the same hotel used by John Belushi to OD and Howard Hughes to peep on women. Maybe Pontius will be a loveable, buffoonish neighbor. He seems like Kramer for the MTV Generation.

Somewhere is currently in preproduction; so, don’t expect to see this film before next year.
