By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: It seems that Ryan Dunn was never so famous as he became upon his death. His untimely demise generated so much buzz about the “Jackass” star, that the IMDB StarMeter ranking currently lists Dunn at #1. In life, Dunn’s IMDB StarMeter rating topped out at #779. Dunn and Zachary Hartwell, a “Jackass 2” production assistant died when Dunn’s car hit a tree in Pennsylvania; both Dunn and Hartwell had been drinking.
Prior to his death, Dunn reached the height of his stardom in 2006 with the release of “Jackass 2”. In fact, Dunn’s star power declined between 2007 and 2010, rebounding briefly in late 2010 with the release of “Jackass 3-D.” In the days leading up to his death, Dunn’s StarMeter ranking hovered at #2,544; in early 2010, it bottomed out at #10,720.
