Gibbs High grad Justin Hires to act like a 'jerk' on MTV this Thursday
Justin Hires may be a "jerk," but he's our "jerk"! And a talented smartaleck to boot. The 2003 gone-Hollywood Gibbs High grad will star in MTV's new prank reality (prankality?) show Jerks With Cameras, which premieres this Thursday at 10:30 p.m. The premise is Candid Camera meets Punk'd, as eight comedians wreak havoc on city streets, causing mayhem with all manner of secretly-taped tomfoolery. (One of Hires' bits, seen in the trailer below, is dressing up as a construction foreman and getting pedestrians to do nutty stuff in the name of safety.) A standout at the Pinellas County Center for the Arts, Hires has sniffed stardom before, getting roles in such major flicks as Stomp the Yard and 21 Jump Street, not to mention garnering a millions-strong fanbase via YouTube sketches. Still, this MTV gig could get our guy noticed in a major way. Go get 'em, Justin.
