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.

    Do they need help coming up with a title?

    "Sharknado 2: Cloudy With A Chance of Death"
    "Sharknado 2: It's A Twister It's A Twister!"
    "Sharknado 2: Daddy Why Is It Raining Shark Poop?"

    I got the next one covered too:
    "Sharknado 3: Sharknado Vs. Octopussicane Vs. Tsquidnami"

  • Jim

    You forgot Squirrelicane. Again.

  • BWeaves

    What Sharknado 2 really needs is Jim Cantore kneeing a flying shark in the groin and tossing it out of view, all the while not missing a beat on his weather report.

  • e jerry powell

    You know that THAT would automatically make it 2000x better. In fact, that should just be a loop for 90 minutes.

  • Bodhi

    There are sharks in the water around Charleston so it could work! Now all I can think of is preppy sharks in pink polos & madras plaid pants...

  • e jerry powell

    Sharks with fashion sense of the mid-eighties?

    Evolution is real, it's just real slow.

  • Bodhi

    I don't know if Southern frat boys ever evolve

  • e jerry powell

    But that goes without saying.

  • Geoff Darrow did it better:

  • Well it is hard to top a Shaolin cowboy with a chainsaw bo staff.

  • Especially when he's fighting a shark inside a giant crocodile using a dead cow as a flotation device...

    Give me this movie please.

  • zeke_the_pig

    And then an HBO series

  • Jim

    I'll give it at least a "C-" if Osbourne tosses her head back and forth while saying "I can't fly this plane, I can't fly this plane."

  • e jerry powell



    There is no more can.

  • Jim

    Courage. {pats shoulder] Courage.

  • zeke_the_pig

    You'd have thought that after the first time they might've at least tried to developed some sort sharknado prediction technology.

    'Mum, do you think there's gonna be a sharknado today?!'
    'I don't know. Jim, I'm not a weatherman! Stick your hand out the window, try and feel the air pressure!'
    'Well, how is the air?'
    'Well, I lost an arm.'
    'Sharknado it is, then.'

  • bastich

    This is why I keep a weather rock hanging outside my window:

  • zeke_the_pig

    If the rock is a shark flying from a tornado...Sharknado

  • Jenn TheYellowDart

    ...Vivica A Fox?
    What the hell. Now I'm sad.

  • Me too...and more sad that I'm not that surprised.
