Sharknado 4: Still Not Written By the How Did This Get Made Team has announced the first of its cast members. And it’s shocking. Because how did it take four of these for Gary Busey to appear? He appeared in my pantry the other day. If you say his name three times in a mirror he shows up. I guarantee if we watched the first three, he wanders through in at least two shots.
Gary Busey will appear as Tara Reid’s dad (I guess #AprilLives, if anyone even remembers how the third one ended with a hashtag-based “Choose Your Own Ending” cliffhanger). And continuing their “oh, this person did something stupid and terrible? Publicity! HIRE THEM AT ONCE” method of casting, Cheryl Tiegs will play Fin’s (Ian Ziering) mom.
According to TV Line, here’s who’s filling out the rest of the main cast:
Syfy also announced that Tommy Davidson (In Living Color), Cody Linley (Hannah Montana), Imani Hakim (Everybody Hates Chris) and Masiela Lusha (George Lopez) have been cast as, respectively, tech titan Aston Reynolds, Fin and April’s grown son Matt, Matt’s Army pal Gabrielle, and Fin’s resourceful cousin Gemini.
Just put everyone aside and let Tommy Davidson just do the whole movie himself.
Sharknado 4: Leprechaun in the Hood (which is not its title but it already went to space so I don’t know where else this goes) premieres in July.
