Johnny Knoxville and several other Jackass cast members are seen filming scenes in Los Angeles

Johnny Knoxville and several other members of the cast of Jackass were spotted while filming scenes for The Discovery Channel’s forthcoming Shark Week in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old daredevil was joined by two of the franchise’s veteran members and several newcomers to the series while working on a stunt in which Jason ‘Wee Man’ Acuna appeared to be the main subject.

The group’s sighting occurred just after former cast member Bam Margera was found after leaving a rehabilitation facility in Florida on Wednesday evening.

Also present during filming was series regular Chris Pontius, as well as new cast members Zach Holmes, Sean ‘Poopies’ McInerney and Jasper Dolphin, as well as his father Compston ‘Dark Shark’ Wilson.

During the skit, Acuna donned a helmet and what appeared to be a shark fin while standing in front of a clear container of water.

Dolphin also held a set of cables while the project’s crew worked on the project.

The collaborators were later pictured while receiving direction from a cameraman.

Knoxville, as well as the other performers, were all featured in the recently-released feature Jackass Forever.

The movie served as the fourth entry in the film franchise, which was originally based on the series of the same name.

The show initially premiered in 2000, with the first film premiering two years later.

The film was a hit with audiences, and two sequels were released in 2006 and 2010, respectively.

Two behind-the-scenes features that accompanied the sequels were also released to the public.

A spinoff movie entitled Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa debuted in 2013, and Stephen Prout was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling for his work on the movie.

Development on Jackass Forever began in 2018, when Knoxville expressed that he would be interested in working on another feature in the series.

The project was confirmed to have been in production the following year, and filming took place throughout much of 2020.

Margera, 42, was recently taken back to a Florida rehabilitation facility after being located in Delray Beach on Wednesday evening.

According to the TMZ, the troubled performer had voluntarily left the center on Monday after being frustrated about the lack of celebrity treatment.

The skateboarder was previously given a court order to remain at the rehabilitation facility.

Police officers and a crisis intervention team later located him and escorted him back to the facility with his full cooperation.
