Joining them will be Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Cheryl Tiegs, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley and Masiela Lusha.
The fate of Reid’s April Wexler character will be determined by a fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social media campaign. TheWrap has a feeling she’s not going to make it.
In July, Syfy will premiere “Sharknado 4,” taking place five years after the East Coast was destroyed in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!”
Syfy and the production company The Asylum teased: “Fin (Ziering), 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…”
Currently filming, “Sharknado 4” is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.
Here is the new cast’s character descriptions, in Syfy and The Asylum’s own words:
Gary Busey (“Lethal Weapon,” “Celebrity Apprentice”), as Wilford Wexler, April’s father and a lead scientist at Astro-X. He’s at the forefront of advances in the field of robotics.
Tommy Davidson (“Black Dynamite,” “In Living Color”), as Aston Reynolds, playboy tech billionaire. Aston is the CEO of tech company Astro-X, developers of a revolutionary energy system that can stabilize the atmosphere and prevent the formation of tornadoes.
Imani Hakim (“Everybody Hates Chris”), as Gabrielle, Matt’s best friend and a fellow soldier. Gabrielle is tough and no-nonsense, can take care of herself and isn’t afraid to show what she’s capable of doing.
And the rest:
Cody Linley (“Hannah Montana,” “Melissa & Joey”), as Matt, Fin and April’s eldest son. After surviving the first Sharknado, Matt finished flight school and joined the Army. He’s experienced the events of the last six years from afar and longs to reunite with his American Hero father.
Masiela Lusha (“George Lopez“), as Gemini, Fin’s cousin. Ever resourceful, Gemini is chock full of shark-busting attitude and is ready to dive into the fight once the sharks hit the fan.
Cheryl Tiegs (“The Apprentice”), as Raye, Fin’s mother and Col. Gil Shepard’s ex-wife. Raye is a little bit of a former flower child, but not afraid to speak her mind or protect her family.
