Brad Pitt texts condolences to Bam Margera

Bam Margera was visibly distraught as he visited the scene where Ryan Dunn, his best friend and “Jackass” compadre, died in a car accident Monday. Since Dunn’s death, the skateboarder has been receiving many kind words from fans and friends. And, apparently, from Brad Pitt.

Wow, just got a nice text from brad pitt concerning dunn, tnx 2 everyone for the texts, cheers me up http://yfrog.com/kf3ffnjjless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

While this may seem completely random, it isn’t. Pitt appeared with Margera on MTV’s “Jackass” in the 2002 sketch “The Abduction,” in which the Oscar-nominated actor pretended to get kidnapped.

Margera was involved in a brief, yet nasty Twitter argument with film critic Roger Ebert, who tweeted, “Friends don’t let jackasses drive drunk.” A toxicology report revealed that Dunn’s blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit when his Porsche, which may have been driving at 130 mph, flew off a Pennsylvania road and caught fire. Dunn’s passenger, Zachary Hartwell, was also killed.
