Well, I can tell by the number of comments made any time Johnny Knoxville's name is mentioned that people could give a rat's behind less about him.

I don't think it's so much that they don't care about him. Maybe it's more of a "who's that" sort of scenario. Who really recognizes him anymore? I know I did, then the Jack@$$ movies came about... then kind of faded away. At least that's how it seemed to me.
