You may have noticed a striking similarity in appearance between Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds and late Jackass star Ryan Dunn. Bam Margera seemed to notice as well, and when he needed somebody to play his late friend, Dunn, in an upcoming film, he looked no further than the Mastodon shredder. Dunn passed away in June 0f 2011 after driving while intoxicated and crashing his Porsche.
