Sharknado 3: David Hasselhoff to Play Father to Ian Ziering

Shakrnado 3 Hasselhoff

Your old Baywatch-meets-Beverly Hills, 90210 fan fic just exploded.

David Hasselhoff has joined the cast of Syfy’s Sharknado 3 as Gilbert* Sheperd, father to Ian Ziering’s returning hero Fin.

It was previously announced that another iconic swimsuit wearer, Bo Derek, will play April’s (Tara Reid) mother, who is of course named May.

Cameo roles for the follow-up include Shark Tank‘s Mark Cuban and political commentator Ann Coulter as the President and VP of the United States; Jerry Springer as a manic tourist; NSYNC crooner Chris Kirkpatrick as a lifeguard, and WWF superstar Chris Jericho as a roller coaster ride operator.

Sharknado 3 — which will target Washington, D.C., before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida — is set to premiere in July.

* OK, it just hit me — Fin’s father’s name is Gil(l). Fish humor.
