"I love Bam. We all love Bam. He's our brother, you know? You just hope that he takes it upon himself to get the help that he needs, because we all care about him a lot." Knoxville said, adding that it's "really heartbreaking" to see what's gone on with Margera recently.

In the months since Margera was removed from the film in early 2021, he was hit with a restraining order from the film's director, Jeff Tremaine, and he said the 'Jackass' cast "tortured" him with a 90 day rehab stint.

'Jackass Forever' hits theaters next month after several delays and it will be star Johnny Knoxville's, 50, final in the franchise.
