Ryan Dunn In Fatal Car Crash, Proving Ground Pulled From G4 Schedule

Ryan Dunn, from the hit MTV show (and subsequent blockbuster films) Jackass, passed away this morning after being involved in a horrific car crash. Dunn was always my favorite "Ass," and it's sad we'll never get the chance to see him perform another reckless stunt with a big smile on his face. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

After news of his death (around 3 a.m. this morning), EW (opens in new tab) approached the people at G4 TV regarding the status of Dunn's new show, Proving Ground, which debuted just last week. According to the article:

[the] show which tested out wild video game and movie stunts in the real world, a perfect fit for the always-game Dunn, may not see the light of day. G4 tells EW that as of June 20, "the show is off the schedule …until we discuss next steps."

Dunn also made another television appearance (which might be his last with the uncertainty surrounding the rest of Proving Ground) last week on NBC's Minute to Win It, the network's breakout game show of last season. Dunn and fellow Jackass Steve-O competed on the game show for charity and here's a quick glimpse at that appearance.

Ryan Dunn will be missed, and some of his friends have already chimed in: Johnny Knoxville (opens in new tab), Wee Man (opens in new tab), and Dave England (opens in new tab). Rest in peace.
