Jackass star Johnny Knoxville is in talks to star in Jeremy Garelick's Sick Day, a comedy about three 30-something friends with a tradition of taking an annual sick day, which is being described as a "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for adults." While we don't know for sure that somebody will get hit in the nuts during this movie, we'd say it's probably a safe bet.
