*“Clueless” actress Stacey Dash will join “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey and a host of other shark bait for Syfy’s forthcoming “Sharkando: The 4th Awakens.”
The new movie picks up five years after the events of “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!,” with Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) once again in the eye of the storm. “His family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.”
Dash, currently a Fox News commentator, will reportedly cameo as the mayor of Chicago. Bailey, Robert Herjavec (“Shark Tank”), Kym Johnson (“Dancing with the Stars”), Carrie Keagan (TV host), T’Keyah Crystal Keymah (“In Living Color”) and “Baywatch” stars Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul will play Astro-X rocket scientists and astrophysicists.
Tara Reid returns as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted campaign to determine whether April lives or dies. David Hasselhoff (as Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise their “Sharknado 3” roles.
Other new additions to the cast include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.
Benjy Bronk (The Howard Stern Show) will show up as a morning show host, and Duane Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter) plays a chainsaw dealer in the next iteration of the Sharknado franchise, premiering Sunday, July 31.
Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts is manager of the Shark World hotel, MMA fighter Frank Mir is its head of security, and Corey Taylor of Slipknot is one of the security guards.
David Faustino (Married … with Children) is a Las Vegas gambler, Lori Greiner (Shark Tank) pretends to be a home-shopping guru, Dr. Drew Pinsky (Loveline) is a pastor, and Patti Stanger (Millionaire Matchmaker) a reporter.
Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Wayne Newton (aka Mr. Las Vegas) and Todd, Savannah and Grayson Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best will cameo as themselves.
