Biography

Bam, Brandon de son vrai prénom, est né à West Chester, juste à côté de Philadelphie en Pennsylvanie le 28 septembre 1979. Il reçoit son premier skate en 1988 et commence à pratiquer ce qui va devenir sa passion. Sa famille se compose de Phil et April, ses parents, et de Jess, son frère, qui deviendra batteur pour le groupe de Rock alternatif, CKY (Camp Kill Yourself). À l'école il rencontre des personnes comme Ryan Gee, Brandon DiCamillo ou encore Chris Raab. Parallèlement, il progresse en skate et devient professionnel. C'est ainsi qu'il fera la connaissance de Tony Hawk, mais aussi de skaters moins connus tels que Kerry Getz, Mike Maldonado, Chris Aspite (Hoof) ou Arto Saari. Avec ses camarades de classe de l'époque, il décide de tourner sa propre vidéo de skate après avoir participé aux vidéos d'Element, de Toy Machine ou d'Adio. Cette vidéo s'appelle Camp Kill Yourself, elle fait apparaître les skateurs que connaît Bam, et montre des dérives assez hallucinantes (voir rubrique CKY) ; il en existera 4 opus plus fous les uns que les autres. C'est ainsi que Johnny Knoxville le repère, et avec certains membres de la troupe de CKY, il participe à l'émission Jackass.
Ses parents, Phil et April Margera, sont de bons amis des Jackass et participent même à plusieurs de leurs cascades.

In West Chester, Pennsylvania, Bam Margera, his wife Missy Margera, and friends get ready to celebrate Christmas. After destroying friend Brandon Novak's new car (the first car that he ever owned), Bam realizes that he has to get Missy a special present: Santa Claus. When discussing how to find Santa, Bam states that he lives in Lapland, Finland and that the common misconception is that he lives in the North Pole. Disagreeing, he makes a bet with Mark The Bagger that he will find Santa and bring him back to West Chester as a present for Missy; if he cannot find Santa, Mark gets to go on a date with Missy. Novak also makes a side-bet with Bagger that he can sleep with more women in Finland than Bagger can in Pennsylvania, even with the help of friend Jimmy Pop.

Jackass Number Two is a compilation of various stunts, pranks and skits, and essentially has no plot. The film opens with an introduction of the nine cast members while they're being chased by bulls in a neighborhood. As the stampede chases them, Ryan Dunn jumps into a station wagon before a bull rips off the open door. Preston Lacy is pushed through a fence by a bull while trying to get over it. Dave England takes cover in a garbage can, which is knocked aside by a bull. Jason "Wee-Man" Acuña is knocked to the ground by a calf, and Chris Pontius is thrown into a kiddie pool by a bull's horns. Ehren McGhehey and Steve-O jump and break through a garden fence to avoid being hit. Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera are left, and get chased into a house. Bam jumps through a window, and Johnny stops in his tracks to deliver his signature line, "Hi, I’m Johnny Knoxville, and welcome to Jackass!", before being blasted through a window by several bulls, followed by the film's title appearing onscreen.

While the rest of his high school graduating class is heading to the same old kind of college, skateboarder Eric Rivers and his best friends, Dustin, a goal-oriented workaholic, and misfit slacker Matt have one last summer roadtrip together to follow their dream of getting noticed by the professional skateboarding world—and getting paid to skate. When skating legend Jimmy Wilson's skate demo tour hits town, the boys figure that as soon as he sees their fierce tricks, he'll sign them up for his renowned skate team immediately, right? Unfortunately, the guys are intercepted by Jimmy's road manager and they can't get their foot in the door, much less their boards. But they do get some free advice: keep skating, stay true to yourself, and stay in the game—if you're good, you'll get noticed. Following their dream—and Jimmy's national tour—Eric, Dustin and Matt start their own skate team, reluctantly sponsored by Dustin and his college fund.

Ryan believes she is seeing someone else and attempts to call Glauren several times, to which she finally returns his calls to reveal that she is in fact seeing someone named Hellboy (Rake Yohn), but denies sleeping with him; however Ryan does not believe her. He runs to the local coffee house where he finds his friend, Valo (Bam Margera), to explain what happened. After he attacks a customer for "taunting" him, Ryan requests that Valo vandalize Glauren's house, and he will pay him and Falcone (Brandon DiCamillo) 100 dollars each to do it. Valo then suggests that he should try and talk to some other girls. Ryan tries his luck with a girl in the coffee house, but after he insults her, she stabs him in the eye with a fork, which leaves him screaming in pain and he passes out on the floor. He now has to wear an eyepatch until his eye heals.
