With Jackass 4 on its way (March 2021, people), we decided to do some digging and find out what the main cast of the world's most famous prank and stunt show have been up to.

From Johnny Knoxville to Steve-O, here they all are.

Jackass is Johnny Knoxville's baby, the actor/stuntman/producer/screenwriter/comedian (and breathe) both co-creating and starring in the prank series and films.

But what is he up to now?

In 2013, he appeared in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which he wrote and produced.

He also bagged himself a number of film roles with the likes of Emilia Clarke in Above Suspicion and Mads Mikkelsen in Polar. He's also set to appear in Mainstream, a film directed by Gia Coppola, with Andrew Garfield, Maya Hawke and Jason Schwartzman.

And it goes without saying that he's been busy working on Jackass 4, which is set for release on March 5, 2021.

The vast majority of Bam Margera's CV is occupied by Jackass, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be part of the upcoming Jackass 4.

In 2017, he starred in Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine, a documentary film about skateboarding magazine Big Brother, alongside Jackass co-stars Steve-O, Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze.

During an interview with TV psychologist Dr Phil McGraw last year, Margera, who has spent several stints in rehab over the years, opened up about his "mental breakdown" and how his son saved him.

"I had such a mental breakdown that I really thought like I… could just go to the lake and be free," he said. "I was like, the pain was gone and I had to beg for pain back. I was like, 'Please just give me back my pain so I could stay because I want to be with him.'

"If I hadn't seen Phoenix, who knows where I'd be."

Steve-O has his own YouTube channel, which has more than five million subscribers. His videos range from sharing the tattoos he most regrets to his craziest shark encounters to adopting a dog for the fifth time.

He also appeared in documentary film Dumb.

But it doesn't look like we'll be seeing him in Jackass 4.

"It has been greenlit by Paramount Pictures, yeah," he told MMA Junkie. "They say March of 2021, but they haven't given me an offer that I can really take seriously yet.

"Not to be rude or anything, but... I don't have a contract yet. So we'll see.

"I'm rooting for all the bros. It's just a weird situation. But I love all my Jackass buddies, and I just gotta do it differently this time. They gotta fix it."

Steve-O appeared on several reality shows, including Celebrity Juice and The Jump, where he met Stacey Solomon. The pair briefly dated, before going their separate ways.

"I have no idea what happened, genuinely. I just haven't heard from him," Solomon told new! magazine.

As well as Jackass, Chris Pontius popped up in 2018's Game Over, Man!, an action comedy film starring Adam DeVine, and Action Point, a comedy with none other than Knoxville.

But it remains to be seen whether he'll play a role in Jackass 4 now that he's busy being a dad.

He shared the news of Axe's birth with fans last December.

Dave England has done very little since Jackass, but he is a stunt professional, so we're sure he's been able to pay the bills by backflipping off burning buildings and whatever else is asked of him.

He also appeared in 2016 comedy film The Bet, and he's expected to pop up in Jackass 4.

Back in June 2011, Ryan Dunn and Zachary Hartwell, a production assistant on Jackass Number Two, tragically died when the Porsche they were travelling in hit a tree and burst into flames in Pennsylvania.

Dunn was driving 130 miles an hour and he had been drinking.

"Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn," wrote Knoxville on Twitter. "My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan.

"I love you buddy."

Jason 'Wee Man' Acuña

In 2019, it was reported that Jason "Wee Man" Acuña, who is a professional skateboarder, had sold his $2 million mansion in California to live in a van.

He appeared in the YouTube series Van Talk, in which he explained his decision.

"This is how I live now," he said. "Sold the house, sold the farm, sold everything, I just live here, this is it.

"I realise the more shit you have, the more issues you have. I like being on the road, I love travelling. I wanted to do something different, I needed a change in my life. I straight said, 'F**k it, I'm gonna get a van. I'm gonna live in it and I'm gonna do whatever the f**k I want.'"

He's also appeared in a number of other reality shows, including Celebrity Circus and MTV's Scarred Live.

Preston Lacy has had his hands full with stand-up comedy, touring across America both solo and with other comics.

He's also rumoured to be taking part in Jackass 4.

Ehren McGhehey, like Margera, has mostly appeared in the Jackass franchise and will probably rock up in the fourth movie, given the below photo, in which he appears beside England, Lacey, Pontius, Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, 'Weeman' and Steve-O.

In 2016, he also appeared in the TV series Grimm, an NBC fantasy police drama.

Jackass 4 is set for release on March 5, 2021.
