Ryan Dunn was an American reality television personality and daredevil best known for being a member of The Jackass Crew as well as a cast member on Viva La Bam. Dunn also hosted the shows Homewrecker and Proving Ground. A member of the CKY Crew, Dunn played the main character in Bam Margera's 2003 film Haggard, which was based on a failed relationship Dunn had experienced.

Dunn took part in the characteristic stunts that made Jackass famous. While taping a skit for Jackass: The Movie, Dunn was driving a golf cart with Johnny Knoxville as his passenger. The idea was that Dunn would launch the golf cart over a sandtrap and into a plastic statue of a giant pig, and the statue would be crushed. However, the statue did not crush, but instead forced the golf cart into the air and it landed upside down. Dunn was thrown from the cart, and Knoxville landed on his neck with the cart on top of him. In the commentary for the movie, Bam noted Dunn's bad driving.

Another skit in Jackass: The Movie featured Dunn placing a toy car into his rectum. The car was placed inside a condom and was covered in lubricant. He then visited a doctor and complained of pain in his tailbone. An x-ray session revealed that a small car was lodged in his body bringing surprise to the doctor. Dunn was also featured in Jackass Number Two.

In 2006, Dunn and Bam Margera participated in the Gumball 3000 road rally in Margera's Lamborghini Gallardo. He later went on a tour with Don Vito called "The Dunn and Vito Rock Tour" for which the DVD was released on March 20, 2007. Dunn and Margera again participated in the rally in 2008.

Bam Margera stated during a December 2, 2008, radio interview with Big O and Dukes of 106.7 WJFK-FM, that he and Dunn would be going to Italy to film Where the F*%# are my Ancestors. That same month, Dunn appeared on the episode "Smut" of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in December 2008. He is also featured in a movie called Street Dreams which was released in the spring of 2009. He co-starred along with Rob Dyrdek and Paul Rodriguez Jr.

Dunn was also working on a show with fellow Jackass star Bam Margera about them traveling the world in ten episodes of a Viva la bam-like show called Bam's World Domination for Spike TV. He appears in Jackass 3D, which was released on October 15, 2010.

On June 20, 2011, at approximately 3:30 a.m. EDT, Dunn died in a car crash on the West Chester Bypass (US 322) within West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania.
