The third installment in the so-silly-it's-awesome "Sharknado" series now has its final lineup and is getting a special premiere week slate of programming, which Syfy announced on Thursday.
"Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" (love the subtitle) reunites viewers with original stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, who are reprising their roles as estranged spouses/sharknado survivors Fin and April. Joining them this time around is original "Sharknado" star Cassie Scerbo (who sat out last summer's "Sharknado 2: The Second One"), along with some new faces: David Hasselhoff (playing Fin's father, Gil), Bo Derek (April's mother, May), Ryan Newman (taking over the part of April and Fin's daughter, Claudia Shepard, from original star and current "Nashville" cast member Aubrey Peeples), and Jack Griffo (Claudia's friend, Billy).
Those main characters join previously-announced cameos from a random assortment of "stars" (we use that term lightly), including Mark Cuban (President of the United States), Ann Coulter (Vice President of the United States), Michele Bachmann, "Today Show" hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda, Frankie Muniz, Anthony Weiner, Jerry Springer, Washington Redskins players Ryan Kerrigan and Tom Compton, *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick, and Chris Jericho.
"Sharknado 3" will be ravaging the Feast Coast, raging from Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Florida, and taking out a host of political landmarks and amusement park rides in its sea creature-filled wake. We can't wait. The flick debuts on Syfy on July 22 at 9 p.m.
Syfy is also planning a Sharknado Week premiere event, featuring six additional original movies. They are: "Sharktopus Vs. Whale Wolf" (Roger Corman's third installment of the 'Sharktopus' franchise, starring Casper Van Dien); "3-Headed Shark Attack" (starring Danny Trejo); "Roboshark"; "Mega Shark Vs. Kolossus" (starring Illeana Douglas); "Zombie Shark" (starring Jason London); and the premiere of "Lavalantula" (starring Steve Guttenberg and fellow "Police Academy" alums Leslie Easterbrook and Michael Winslow, as they battle lava-breathing tarantulas threatening to destroy Los Angeles).
