Jackson Nicoll made quite an impression on Chelsea Handler when they costarred in the 2012 movie Fun Size. Johnny Knoxville? Not so much. The latter appeared on the Thursday, Oct. 24, episode of Chelsea Lately, where he and Handler swapped stories about working with the 9-year-old scene-stealer.
After Handler said she worked with the "nugget" on a movie that "bombed" last Halloween, Knoxville laughed and told the talk show host, "We were in it together."
"Oh, you were in it, too?" Handler asked, laughing. The comedienne went on to call Nicoll "super annoying" and "a dick," but Knoxville said he was so impressed with the young star's talent that he decided to cast him in his latest movie, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.
"He's really smart and he's just fearless. A lot of kids freeze up when they do pranks," Knoxville said. "Jackson, we have to back down. Like, he goes after people too hard."
"Yeah, that's because there's a Twinkie in the background that he's chasing," Handler quipped. "I've never seen a kid eat more food. His parents are just throwing it at him. Everything's a bribe with food. I was like, ‘This kid is gonna pop in a second.'"
The pair also laughed at the Nicoll's choice of swimwear. "His mom said, ‘He loves Speedos. He likes to wear ‘em so tight the last ones were so tight we had to cut off of him,'" Knoxville recalled.
