As if things weren’t silly enough with regard to Syfy and The Asylum’s upcoming Sharknado 3, wait until you get a load of the film’s latest casting coups! Ladies and gentlemen, meet the President and Vice President of the United States…
From the Press Release:
A new Administration is taking office before January 2017! Syfy and The Asylum today announced that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (“Shark Tank”) will play the President of the United States with political commentator/author Ann Coulter joining him as Vice President in the eagerly anticipated original movie Sharknado 3.
Previously announced cameos in the latest installment of the global pop culture sensation will include Bo Derek as May, the mother of April (Tara Reid); Jerry Springer appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.
Also joining the cast of Sharknado 3 will be Ryan Newman, who will play April and Fin’s (Ian Ziering) daughter, Claudia Sheperd, with Jack Griffo portraying Claudia’s friend, Billy.
Featuring stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, and Cassie Scerbo, Sharknado 3 will premiere on Syfy in July, causing mass destruction in Washington, D.C., before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida.
Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin. Sharknado 3 is a production of The Asylum.
When it aired last July 30, Sharknado 2: The Second One became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever.
