SHARKNADO Casting Their Lines Again with SHARKNADO 4


Syfy and The Asylum announced this week that our favorite shark-slaying hero Ian Ziering will once again return in Sharknado 4 (no awesome title beyond that, at this point) as Fin Shepherd. Can I get a collective “Hell, yeah!”? Tara Reid also will return to reveal the outcome of the #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign, as voted by die-hard fans. This fourth addition to the hit global franchise also brings back David Hasselhoff as Gil Shepard and Ryan Newman as Claudia Shepard.

Set to premiere on Syfy this July, Sharknado 4 takes place five years after Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Fin and the world have been blissfully sharknado-free in the interim years, but now regretfully/thankfully sharknados are back in business.

S4 will also star:

  • Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon, Celebrity Apprentice), as Wilford Wexler, April’s father. As 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.
  • 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 father, the hero.
  • 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.
  • Masiela Lusha (George Lopez), as Gemini, Fin’s cousin. Gemini is 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.

Currently filming, Sharknado 4 is sure to include additional outrageous cameos to be announced soon. Sharknado 4 is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct with an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.
