Of Course Ian Ziering And Tara Reid Are Going To Come Back For ‘Sharknado 3’

Sharknado 3 is coming to Syfy and the internet judgement-sphere, and now we know that Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will be along for the ride.

Ziering will once again play surfer-turned-shark-hunter Fin, while Reid will reprise her role as April, his (buzzsaw-accessorized?) ex-wife.

As previously reported, the third Sharknado disaster will take place on “the Feast Coast,” with twisters swirling from Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Fla.

I don’t know why the question mark is there with regard to April’s buzzsaw hand. Without it, she can get eaten before the first commercial break and replaced by Donna D’Errico with a broad-sword leg for all I care. Also, what about Mark McGrath?

I can’t decide if I love, loathe, or am indifferent to the Sharknado franchise. On one hand, I enjoy the moment of closeness that has been achieved by our collective social media mocking of these films. It’s a uniter, not a divider, but there’s no sport in it since the filmmakers are in on the joke. It’s like the internet is a T-Rex and we’re being fed a goat on a chain. Internet T-Rex was born to hunt. If we can’t taste the effort put into the thing that we’re tearing apart, where is the fun in that for Internet T-Rex?

Putting those feelings aside, though, people get their cheap laughs and Syfy gets to be the belle of the pop culture ball for a couple of days, so no real harm, no foul, and no stopping this train until it rides right off the tracks.

Sharknado 3 is set to debut in July. You know you’ll be watching.
