The 'Sharknado 2 'Cast Is a Festival of F*ck-ups...and Judd Hirsch

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | February 12, 2014 | Comments ()


They’re baaack. Wait, that’s not right. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the…air? I don’t know, work with me here. We’re talking about the sequel to one of the most inane movies you’ve ever seen; one that features sharks flying through the air, and heroes who attack sharks with heavy furniture instead of the guns in their hands. Nothing makes sense. And now, nothing will make sense again.

You knew Tara Reid and Ian Ziering would be back for Sharknado 2: (Not Electric Boogaloo), because what the hell else do they have to do? This is the most attention either actor has gotten since one of them got plastic surgery and the other hung out at the Peach Pit. But I’ll bet none of us could imagined the shitshow this little trip to Manhattan is going to be. That’s right, this time the freak storm is headed to New York City, and I wonder if we’ll see get to see some critter throw-downs—maybe shark vs. cat-sized subway rat or…cockroaches? But I’m getting ahead of myself, here. Back to the cast. Syfy has announced the additional players, and I think you’re going to be quite impressed:

Andy Dick as a dick (well, really a police officer); Mark McGrath as Ziering’s brother in law; Kelly Osbourne as a flight attendant, Vivvica A. Fox as a high school classmate of Ziering, Judah Friedlander as someone named Brian and Judd Hirsch as—wait for it—a taxi driver.

What are you even thinking, Judd Hirsch?

Just let that sink in while you watch this “Best Kill Ever” clip from the original Sharknado.
