2nd Unit Director · Stunt Coordinator · Stunt Coordinator TV · Stunt Performer
Edward “Eddie” Braun is a stuntman, stunt actor and stunt coordinator.
Braun’s seemingly endless list of action credits range from 1980 television classics The Dukes of Hazzard, The Fall Guy and Magnum, P.I. to films including Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Moneyball, The Avengers and Bad Moms. He’s doubled for Charlie Sheen, Lee Majors and Chuck Norris, among others. In 2002 Eddie was nominated for a Taurus World Stunt Award for best stunt coordination for the film Rush Hour 2.
In 2016 Eddie became the only man to ever jump across Idaho’s Snake River Canyon in a rocket, a 3.9-second stunt that his childhood idol, Evel Knievel, attempted but failed in 1974 when he crashed into the river after his parachute deployed too early. Soaring 3,000 feet into the air at about 450 miles per hour, there was a 50-50 chance that Braun would not survive. It was a risk he was willing to take because, he said, “I’m all good. I’m at peace with my maker.”
