Travis Pastrana and Jolene Van Vugt of "Nitro Circus Live" stepped off their bikes and out of harm's way to answer a whole bunch of Reddit's questions before the premiere of the "Nitro Circus The Movie 3D." The stunt duo covered a range of topics from injuries to stunt execution to how they've managed to stay alive. In case you missed the other Nitro Circus announcement goodness, MTV2 has renewed their show for a second season based on the crew's European tour beginning in Stockholm, Sweden, so stayed tuned for updates on that. Without further adieu, check out the Guy Code Blog breakdown of the highlights from Travis and Jolene's Q&A session.
You guys, since I was so right about "Battleship" being a totally boss movie, I had to come back and drop some more knowledge on you, because I'm the kinda guy who makes sure his bros get their fill of cinematic delights. So here's the next movie you should be straight AMPED about: motherf***in' "Step Up Revolution."
I know, but hear me out, man. You're thinking "Whaaat, a dance movie? Has our boy gone SOFT?" NO. I am so hard. Hard for this movie. Just take one look at the trailer, and you'll see, this is one flying haymaker of sweet moves and sexy biddies. Still need convincing? Fine, I made a list for all you jabroni holdouts. Here are 11 reasons "Step Up Revolution" will straight step ON the competition's NARDS.
1. Break-dancing statues!
The appeal for this first item is self-explanatory, dog.
We've got another installment of "Film School With R.A. The Rugged Man," as our favorite movie buff lets us in on the movies that made him cry. First up is "The Champ," about a "bum, loser fighter" who's worshiped by his young son. As for the other movie, we were expecting something like "Field of Dreams" or "Saving Private Ryan" and, well, we were way off. You'll have to watch the video below to find out what it is, but we'll give you a hint: it's a musical. You decide if that breaks the Guy Code, and feel free to tell R.A. yourself, because we surely won't.

"Guy Code" is officially back with Season 2 kicking off last night. In preparation for the next helping of our favorite show, we wondered about the topics for this season, looked very (very) closely at sexy photos of cast-member Melanie Iglesias and now we're rolling out this list of Guy Code violations in pop culture. Beginning with...
1. The Rule: No drinking 'til you puke
The Violator: Ronnie from "Jersey Shore." Back when the Jersey Shore crew was in Miami, before they were megastars, Ronnie fell out of bed and started puking "like The Exorcist" after a particularly intense night of beating up the beat. He also puked into a shopping bag on a later season. We can't imagine Ron-Ron Juice tastes good on the way back out. We can't imagine it tastes good on the way in, come to think of it.
We've got a bunch of interviews with the cast-members of "Guy Code" ahead of tonight's premiere of Season 2 on MTV2 at 11/10c. But none will be as mind-blowing as this one, because this one has a piece of movie trivia that even the biggest geek wouldn't know.
Did you know that THREE members of our humble little show have appeared in the "Spider-Man" franchise? Yes, it's true, there is a real "Guy Code"-"Spider-Man" love connection. Sorry, Emma Stone. Donnell Rawlings appears in "Spider-Man 2", Dean Edwards appears in "Spider-Man 3" and Damien Lemon appears in the most recent "The Amazing Spider-Man"...with speaking roles, no less! So we asked them to jog their memories and see if they could remember their lines. See who has the best one in the video below.

"The Hangover's" Ed Helms is set to play a grown-up version of Rusty Griswold in a continuation of the National Lampoon's "Vacation" series. Haha, classic Stu! He's jumping into a role that four other actors have played--the franchise has used a different "Rusty" for every incarnation of the series.
Bringing back an old Rusty to play adult Rusty might be a good idea, but before we get all pumped about seeing Helms stumble into Clark Griswold's footsteps on a botched family road trip, let's review our Rustys, and consider why they won't be returning to the role:
Today, for the third and final time this year and the last time until September 2013, it is Friday the 13th. What does that mean for you? Well, if you generally believe that the day is unlucky, or worse, are plagued by friggatriskaidekaphobia, you may want to take cover. For the rest of you, there's this gallery of freaky Jason Voorhees tattoos, the man-boy mass murderer from the "Friday the 13th" movie series. The common thread in the tattoos is his iconic mask, but there's plenty of variety and ranging interpretations.
Hollywood is a small town and it seems even smaller when you learn two stars went to the same high school. Did their home towns pump star juice into the water fountains? Were their plays considered off off off Broadway? Did agents attend their talent shows? If we had known schools like this existed, we would've given our kidneys to attend one and drink from the fountains of famous juice. Instead we went to dumb Regular People High School. Thanks mom and dad!
Some famous high school stars even stayed buddies after graduation (or dropping out) and helped each other achieve success. Anybody familiar with Matt and Ben? It's a nice story, but we think it’s even more interesting when stars take different paths and end up bumping into each other at their 10 year reunion. Here are some examples of that:

Charlie Sheen is the next President of the United States. Did that sentence scare you? If you have a brain, it probably did. But don't worry; the actor is merely playing the POTUS in the upcoming film "Machete Kills." The Robert Rodriguez-directed film is the sequel to "Machete" and follows the title character as the U.S. government requests his help in taking down Mexican drug cartel leaders.
Maybe some political blood runs in Sheen's family. His father, Martin Sheen, did play the President in "West Wing." We can already guess what the actor's campaign slogan would be: Winning.
Imagining Sheen in the White House got us to thinking about more of our favorite celebrities who should never run for public office. The following four stand out as the names who'd be most out of place as public servants.
Film geeks! Film.com just launched an all-new web series called "Film School with R.A. the Rugged Man" and it will rock your pop culture world. R.A. the Rugged Man is a rapper, writer, director and movie buff. And starting now, every other week you'll get to visit his Harlem apartment (which apparently has a wall made entirely of DVD cases) as he breaks down the biggest movies and drops some seriously obscure knowledge--usually in a torrent of profanity, which is just how we like our movie news.
For instance, with hype for "The Dark Knight Rises" at full throttle, in this first episode R.A. has some trivia about the caped crusader's film origin (it was WAY before Michael Keaton uttered "I am Batman"). Like you and me, R.A.'s no film snob; he loves the highbrow and the lowbrow. Watch the first episode to hear his thoughts on everything from "Twilight" to movie remakes to Chuck Norris.
