‘Sharknado 4’ Casts Gary Busey, Cheryl Tiegs, Tommy Davidson Alongside Ian Ziering and Tara Reid

Syfy and The Asylum have announced the cast for “Sharknado 4,” with Ian Ziering (shark-fighting hero Fin Shepard), Tara Reid (his paramour April Wexler), David Hasselhoff (Fin’s father, Col. Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (Fin and April’s daughter, Claudia) reprising their roles for the genre telepic, which will bow in July.

The film will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No.” 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…

Joining the cast for the fourth film are Gary Busey as Wilford Wexler, April’s father and a lead scientist at Astro-X; Tommy Davidson as Aston Reynolds, playboy tech billionaire and CEO of tech company Astro-X, developers of a revolutionary energy system that can stabilize the atmosphere and prevent the formation of tornadoes; Cody Linley as Matt, Fin and April’s eldest son who, after surviving the first sharknado, finished flight school and joined the Army; Imani Hakim as Gabrielle, Matt’s best friend and a fellow soldier; Masiela Lusha as Gemini, Fin’s cousin; Cheryl Tiegs as Raye, Fin’s mother and Col. Gil Shepard’s ex-wife.

Sharknado 4” will also reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign, which will determine the fate of Reid’s character.

As usual, the latest installment in the franchise will feature a number of celebrity cameos to be announced at a later date. “Sharknado 4” is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.
