We’re edging closer to the release of another Sharknado movie on SyFy, the third of the series. This time, we’re back on the East Coast in Washington, D.C., and the ridiculousness has been ramped up to a level we have not seen yet. Kinda the point, obviously, because we need to have something to gif and live tweet about when the thing airs.
Part of the draw for a stupid disaster-filled SyFy film is all the cameos that will be joining our heroes when the chaos rains. SyFy released a list of the new cast to join the existing members and previously announced cameos, giving them some love in the trailer above too:
Ian Ziering (Fin), Tara Reid (April) and Cassie Scerbo (Nova) star in Sharknado 3, which will cause mass destruction in Washington, DC, then roar down the Eastern Seaboard before the final confrontation in Orlando, Florida.
Joining them will be David Hasselhoff (Fin’s father, Gil); Bo Derek (April’s mother, May) and Nickelodeon stars Ryan Newman (April and Fin’s daughter, Claudia Shepard) and Jack Griffo (Claudia’s friend, Billy).
Among the newly-announced cameos, Frankie Muniz plays Nova’s friend, mechanic Lucas Stevens, while Penn Jillette and Teller, respectively, are retired NASA Lieutenant Colonel Stylo and Major Caissier. Playing Secret Service agents are Ne-Yo (Agent Deveroux), Lou Ferrigno (Agent Banner) and Grant Imahara (Agent Lodge), and Jackie Collins, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano appear as themselves.
If that’s enough for you, the list of additional cast is full of a who’s who of headline grabbing talent (usually for the worst reasons):
· Mark Cuban (President of the United States)
· Ann Coulter (Vice President of the United States)
· WWE Superstar Chris Jericho (ride attendant Bruce)
· Jerry Springer (tourist)
· Jedward (tourists)
· Ray J (NASA tech Tom Major)
· Michele Bachmann as herself
· Today’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb as themselves
· NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick (lifeguard)
· Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan (Capitol Park policeman)
· Comcast SportsNet’s Brian Mitchell (NASA tech)
· Anthony Weiner (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration director)
· The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards (Universal Orlando Resort VIP Guide)
· Former The Girls Next Door stars Holly Madison (military sergeant) and Kendra Wilkinson (waitress)
· Washington Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (NASA tech) and offensive tackle Tom Compton (reporter)
· ESPN’s Michelle Beadle (Special Agent Argyle), Marcellus Wiley (Army Specialist Iverson) and Max Kellerman (Army Sergeant Joseph)
There’s sure to be somebody else in this hidden in the corners, but right now it’s shaping up like a low budget version of Jimmy Kimmel’s Movie: The Movie. Nice to see Anthony Weiner getting some work, though.
