Real-life James Bond Mr Goodwin takes on crazy car stunt in TV show

By
Daredevil and professional danger man Jonathan Goodwin kicks off his new TV series tonight with a jaw-dropping stunt that wouldn't look out of place in a James Bond movie.

Inspired by a John Wayne film, Goodwin climbs all the way around a speeding car, moving across the roof and then underneath the vehicle as it races down a track. Without any safety equipment attached, Goodwin relies solely on strength and agility.

"Instead of climbing front to back which would be easiest, we went sideways," Goodwin told Digital Spy. "It's quicker, but much more dangerous. It was very, very intense."

Goodwin performs all variety of stunts for his new series, including putting a live scorpion in his mouth while handcuffed, testing his reflexes on a bear trap that would snap off his arm, dangling off buildings with only two fingers and hanging off a helicopter by only his toes.
