Shark Week 2017: ‘Shark After Dark’ Hooks Charlize Theron and More Guests

And for the fifth year running, the Shark After Dark after-show will be capping each night with celeb guests and all sorts of toothy fun.
Recent Baywatch reboot producer (and horror guy) Eli Roth handles the Shark After Dark hosting duties once again, and this year, his guest list is a mix of funny folks, animal kingdom brainiacs and one spectacularly sexy Oscar winner. Check out the guests below, and set your DVRs accordingly.
