Jonathan Goodwin Hospitalized After Stunt Goes Wrong

Posted by Michael on October 18th, 2021

Jonathan “The Daredevil” Goodwin was injured in an accident on the set of the new NBC series America’s Got Talent Extreme. The video above, from Access, does not show the accident nor will iTricks share any videos supposedly showing the incident. According to Deadline production on the series has been paused indefinitely. There has not been, at time of writing, official word of Goodwin’s condition beyond the fact he is hospitalized.

I think we will be pausing iTricks for the rest of the day… It just somehow does not seem right to enjoy any magic performances right now.
