Mark Cuban (Shark Tank) has been cast as President of the United States and political commentator/author Ann Coulter will assume the duties of Vice President in Syfy/The Asylum’s Sharknado 3. The latest installment of the pop culture phenomenon will cause mass destruction in Washington, D.C. before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida. It will premiere on Syfy in July.
The Dallas Mavericks owner and Coulter will join stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo (Nova). Also joining the cast of Sharknado 3 will be Ryan Newman, who will play April and Fin’s (Ziering) daughter Claudia Sheperd, with Jack Griffo as Claudia’s friend, Billy.
Previously announced cameos in Sharknado 3 include Bo Derek as May, the mother of April (Reid); Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, as Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.
Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin.
When it aired last July 30, Sharknado 2: The Second One became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever.
