The Stars of the "Jaws" Films -- Where Are They Now?

media_removed_toofab 2013

Shark Week is upon us and we're marking the occasion by celebrating the film series that made us all afraid to go back into the water: "Jaws."

The 1975 movie helped launch the career of Steven Spielberg, was nominated for Best Picture and took home Oscars for Best Film Editing, Dramatic Score and Sound.

It also made us all think twice before going for a swim.

The flick, which starred Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, would spawn three sequels -- "Jaws 2," "Jaws 3-D," and "Jaws: The Revenge" -- which randomly starred celebs like Dennis Quaid, Lea Thompson and even Michael Caine

38 years after the original movie's release, we've sadly said goodbye to a lot of the franchise's stars, including Sheriff Brody himself.

From the tragic to the impressive, check out the gallery above to find out what happened to some of the franchise's more familiar faces -- and see what some of them look like now!

Shark Week airs all week long on Discovery.
