Paul Walker, Tara Reid, Stone Cold Steve Austin Among Those Involved in Discovery Channel’s Shark Week

Paul Walker, Tara Reid, Damon Wayans Jr., and Stone Cold Steve Austin are among the celebrities and other involved in Shark Week, which starts on Sunday.

Walker is especially notable because he died last year–the segment he’s in, Spawn of Jaws, was filmed before his death.

“Maverick scientist Michael Domeier launches a dangerous mission. Helped by Fast & Furious star Paul Walker, he risks life and limb to unravel the mystery of where Jaws gives birth… by getting within arm’s reach of the ocean’s fiercest predator,” according to the Discovery Channel’s description.

The segment is scheduled to air at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday.

Shark After Dark LIVE is a live, hour-long comedy late night show all about Shark Week. Host John Wolf is joined by different guests each night.

The first night on Sunday at 11:02 p.m. (same start time every night) will feature actors Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans, Jr., director Robert Rodriguez, and extreme eater Chris Schewe.

The second night will feature Matt Walsh, Danny Trejo, and Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman from “Fast N’ Loud.”

The third night will feature Stone Cold Steve Austin and Tom Green.

The fourth night will feature famous underwater photographer Andy Casagrande, Tara Reid from “Sharknado 2,” and mermaid Hannah Fraser.
