Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath to join cast
Syfy and The Asylum have announced Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox and Mark McGrath will join the eagerly anticipated original movie "Sharknado 2: The Second One."
Osbourne will portray a flight attendant and Dick will play a New York City police officer.
Friedlander will play the character of Brian, while Hirsch - who starred in the iconic New York-based TV series "Taxi" - will be a cab driver named Ben.
Fox will join the cast as Skye, an old high school friend of Fin (Ian Ziering), and Mark McGrath - lead singer of the rock band Sugar Ray and "Killer Karaoke" host - will play Fin's brother-in-law.
Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote "Sharknado."
In "Sharknado 2: The Second One," a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "Sharknado" on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites - and only Fin (Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple.
"Sharknado 2: The Second One," which will be filmed in New York City, is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in July.
