Did you know who is Philip John Clapp?

Knoxville as Bad Grandpa
Did you know who is Philip John Clapp? The entertainment and acting world known him as Johnny Knoxville , is an American daredevil, actor, comedian, screenwriter and film producer. He is best known as a creator and cast member of the MTV series Jackass and his new movie Bap Grandpa..

Life and career

Early life

Knoxville was born March 11, 1971 in Knoxville, Tennessee to Lemoyne Clapp (née Houck), who taught Sunday school, and Philip Clapp, a tire/car salesman.[1][2][3] Knoxville credits a copy of Jack Kerouac's On 
Philip Clapp
the Road, given to him by his cousin, singer-songwriter Roger Alan Wade, with giving him the acting bug.[4]

[5] After graduating from South Young High School in 1989 in Knoxville, he moved to California to become an actor and appeared in commercials and as an extra. When the "big break" he sought eluded him, he decided to create his own opportunities by writing and pitching article ideas to various magazines. An idea to test self-defense equipment on himself captured the interest of Jeff Tremaine's skateboarding magazine Big Brother, and the stunts were filmed and included in Big Brother's "Number Two" video.
