Stunts with JeffJensen_Fireballtim

‘5MINUTE DRIVE’ featuring Hollywood Stuntman, Jeff Jensen!

Malibu is full of cool Hollywood Peeps, and it’s my job to find ’em, stick ’em in a cool car and go for a spin. This week, Hollywood Stuntman Jeff Jensen in a 2013 Malibu ECO. “Fall down, pick up Check.”

Hollywood Stuntman Jeff Jensen is SERIOUS…

My buddy, Jeff Jensen (Hollywood Stuntman) is a very serious guy. Not only has he done stunts for major Hollywood films and doubled just about every major action actor, but he doesn’t leave it up to Hollywood to create a serious stunt.

After 17 surgeries to his knee, Jeff still heads to Pikes Peak every year to go at it with the young gun riders. But regardless of how good you are,¬† you don’t know what it’s like to ride serious until you’ve fallen… seriously. So, that’s where Jeff comes in. He shows those young whipper snappers just what it means to take a fall and get back up.

Mr. Jensen was heading up Pikes Peak at full tilt during the race. And special thanks to those that laid down Magnesium Sulphate on the road to ease the dust, this sent Jeff into a body bounce, being flipped from his BMW machine and coming straight down with a crash. Now, most people after they take a fall and break something like their collar bone… in 3 places, call for the ambulance. But Jeff? Not even… he got back on that bike and rode the 6 miles down the mountain, all the while hearing his collar “bones” clicking.

So now, JJ has a titanium pin set in his collar bone, and, he’s only 3 weeks away from riding again. Doh! (Last year, he rode Pike Peak with a broken leg!) As I said, this dood is serious. Even his buddy, Harrison Ford,¬† is telling him to lay off and just do a movie…

Jeff Jensen. Stuntman. Half man, half robot. All guts…

Next week on the VLOG… Bad Guy, Villain, Acclaimed Actor PATRICK KILPATRICK

With a name like Patrick Kilpatrick, it seems just by adding one letter more… KILLPATRICK, it would explain in detail what this guy does.

Patrick dies… for a living. As an actor in so many films that I stopped counting, and a face that you’d recognize from just about every action film I can remember, it’s with great pleasure and gratitude that I welcome him to the Vlog World next week. We’ll be driving his Jag up PCH here in the Bu as we have so many times with others like Tony Dow and Jonathan Banks.

And as it seems to be a running trend with me nowadays that I’ve become friends with some of Hollywood’s elite Fall Guys (Jeff Jensen, Stuart Wilson, Simon Rhee, Diane Petersen and more…) it makes sense to drive with Patrick and talk dying. As they say in the world of stunts… “Fall down, pick up check.”

Plus, Pat’s got a new book out. Pick up a copy and you’ll see what I’m talkin’ about.

Stay tuned to the Vlog and don’t forget to pick up a copy of our new Hollywood-Inspired SHARKS Coloring Book!

 

CHEVY MALIBU ECO lands at the Fireball Pad!

Who! 37mpg! This is not what I expected from the Malibu when it landed here. I didn’t expect it to be comfortable like a Caddy or Sporty like the Camaro… or with a trunk that fit all my 8 bags of Trader Joe’s gobbly gook. Oh, did I mention I had beach chairs, bag of dog food back there, too? And still, with room left over?

Today! Filming an all new 5MINUTE DRIVE with legendary Stuntman, Jeff Jensen! Check out his insane list of credits. We’re gonna jump that Malibu over the Malibu Lagoon!

Ok, maybe not. But Jeff’s busted his knee 18 times, so that’ll be fun to talk about…

Malibu Weekend of CARS… and Bikes.

As always, up in town on Sundays is a veritable feast of show and shine at the Cross Creek Center. Just doods and doodettes having Joe and bringin’ cool stuff. And since it was my Birthday, we headed up before the Birthday Bash to see some great rides. Even hung for a bit with Stuntman and buddy Jeff Jensen. Got to see his Custom built BMW Bike, plus a few ol’ skool Alfas… Check it…

A day for the BOOKS…

dvd-high-speedWoke up about 5am to the sounds of sirens coming up my street. Plopped themselves right next door at friend, Jeff Jensen’s house. You know Jeff? We interviewed him on THCS months ago. Remember his story about being a Stuntman/Director¬† for the last 30 years? “Fall down, pick up check.” Well, after 17 surgerys on his know, he broke his own record. Now it’s 18. Poor guy, he was in severe pain.

After helping the paramedics with getting him down 3 fleights of stairs, we loaded him into the ambulance. This guy is tough, but breaking a femur is serious, and he did a great job. They took good care of him. For support, send you wishes to THCS blog posts and we’ll forward them on to him.

In the afternoon, I had lunch with my Pop and his buddy, Harold Gould. Who’s Harold Gould? Old time actor with a credit list a mile long. Funny guy. Then, I was off to give a Seminar at Ventura College.

Big thanks to Barbara Harvey for setting up the Seminar with the students. They were awesome.

Startin’ off with a BANG…

Movie Premieres are always a dicey thing. Especially when you head out for an hour’s drive through the worst traffic possible, only to be disappointed. But, in this case, I had a chance to see a new film that really was spectacular. Jeff Jensen’s “THE FIRST, LAST RACE” was an extremely well made documentary about one man’s challenge to overcome the false thoughts of age, physical pain and a grueling challenge to prove an inner strength, inspiring all those that watched.

Jeff was on our show a few months back, talking about the making of THE FIRST, LAST RACE and we had a great time with the interview. But the sheer challenge of what he went through wasn’t clear until I saw the film last night. Jeff rode a new Ducati over 1400 miles from California to Colorado to enter The Pike’s Peak Race. The second oldest race in the country. Did the race, coming in 9th, then rode the bike all the way home. All this, with a broken leg, at 50 years old and a host of Stuntman pain related issues.(Knee surgery 17 times!) Not to mention he wrote, directed and co-edited the dang thing…

His career is extensive along with his friend’s, Paul Lane. (Pictured here with his wife, Julie) Kathie and I had a fantastic time at the screening, once again proving that true film making is about people overcoming incredible challenges.

The film will enter festivals and hopefully get distribution. Nice job, Jeff. …You inspired us all.

Pullin’ a SWITCHEROO…

ffposterToday, I’m grabbing one of the cars from Fast and Furious for one heck of a weekend. Friday brings a Premiere of a new film, “The First, Last Race,” from my buddy Jeff Jensen which we had as a guest on THCS a few weeks back. Saturday is a Smart Car Event HERE, Sunday is the VCR Show and Sunday afternoon is a cool Oscar Party.

So, I’m gonna roar this beast all over the place. And if I get a chance to meet up with any of your at the shows, ask me what I’ve got in the trunk. No, no dead bodies this time, but I’ve got free shirts!

Ok, maybe a couple of corpses… but I didn’t put them there.

THE HOLLYWOOD CAR SHOW Episode 21 this Saturday!!
