Jason Acuna, better known as "Wee-Man", is an American TV host and actor. He is one of the stars of Jackass on MTV and the host of NESN's skateboarding show 54321. Acuņa has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, and is 4 ft 0.5 in tall. He is also a professional skateboarder. Born in Pisa, Italy, Acuņa grew up in Torrance, California, and attended North High School. He was the subscription manager for the skateboard magazine Big Brother. His association with that magazine led him to become involved with the Jackass television series in 2001. Acuņa's Jackass antics include skating as an Oompa-Loompa, kicking himself in the head (a feat accomplished with the aid of his dwarfen proportions), dressing as a king while rolling Johnny Knoxville down a staircase in a red carpet, doing deep-knee bends while holding NBA star Shaquille O'Neal on his back, and having Preston Lacy ask someone to help him with his bags, only to have Wee-Man pop out, causing Preston to give chase. In 2007, Acuņa starred in the reality TV series Armed and Famous and in July 2007, Acuņa appeared on TV as a host of MTV's Scarred Live. Acuņa appeared on the first season of NBC's Celebrity Circus. In the fourth week of competition, he became the first contestant to receive a perfect score (a 10 point average). Acuņa ended the season in third place. Acuņa is an owner of a franchise store of the Chronic Tacos restaurant in Redondo Beach, California. [READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE]
