Sharknado 2: Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch (as a Taxi Driver) and Others Join Schlockquel's Cast
What, you thought Ian Ziering and Tara Reid were going to fight the second Sharknado all by themselves? That’d be insane.
Vivica A. Fox (I’m gonna go with 1-800-MISSING…?), Judd Hirsch (Taxi, Numb3rs), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) and Andy Dick (NewsRadio) are among the fresh chum on hand for Sharknado 2: The Second One, Syfy’s follow-up to last summer’s social media firestorm/ratings did-good-enough-er.
Per our sister site Deadline, Fox will play an old (West Bev?) high school friend of Ziering’s Fin, Hirsch will tread familiar waters as a NYC cabbie and Dick will play a cop. Friedlander’s character’s name is Brian (and quite possibly wears a novelty hat, though this has yet to be confirmed).
Additionally, performer type Mark McGrath will play Fin’s brother-in-law, while Kelly Osbourne (too, too many E! things) will appear as a flight attendant.
Production starts next week with an eye on a July unleashing.
