Mark Cuban, Ann Coulter Join Cast of ‘Sharknado 3’ as President and Vice President

The businessman and the conservative pundit will join franchise regulars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid for the TV movie’s July premiere

Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban will play the President of the United States with political commentator and author Ann Coulter joining him as Vice President in “Sharknado 3,” Syfy and The Asylum announced Monday.

Previously announced cameos in the latest installment of the popular Syfy film franchise include Bo Derek as May, the mother of movie lead April (Tara Reid); Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will portray Bruce the roller coaster ride operator.

Featuring stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Cassie Scerbo (Nova), “Sharknado 3” will premiere on Syfy in July, causing mass destruction in Washington, D.C., before roaring down the Eastern Seaboard and into Florida.

The original “Sharknado” premiered in July 2013. It instantly became a pop culture sensation, mostly because of the absurdity of the plot in which a freak hurricane causes sharks to rain down all across Los Angeles.

Syfy quickly commissioned a sequel. “Sharknado 2: The Second One” became Syfy’s most-watched original movie ever

Anthony C. Ferrante will once again direct, based on an original screenplay by Thunder Levin.
