HELL, LET’S HAVE A LIT­TLE MORE FUN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS - By Deb­bie Schipp

IT’S the movie so lu­di­crous it be­came a hit fran­chise, and as schlockbuster Shark­nado 3: Oh Hell No pre­pares to un­leash, lead­ing man Ian Zier­ing (left) still rev­els in the ridicu­lous­ness.

For the unini­ti­ated, Shark­nado is what it says on the can – sharks, in a tor­nado, at­tack­ing any­thing that moves – unashamed B-grade movie magic.

The first Shark­nado hit Los An­ge­les be­fore Zier­ing’s hero Fin Shephard saved the day. Sim­i­lar scenes played out in New York in Shark­nado 2.

The third in­stal­ment hits the en­tire US east coast and Zier­ing prom­ises it’s as amped as ever.

“We don’t play it tongue in cheek. For a cou­ple of hours as an au­di­ence mem­ber you ac­cept a shark­nado could hap­pen – and once you’re able to do that, you have fun,” he says. “But be­tween takes … we laugh so hard.”

Shark­nado’s suc­cess re­sulted in a long line of ac­tors lin­ing up for cameo roles.

David Has­sel­hoff plays Zier­ing’s fa­ther. Bo Derek lines up as the mother of April (Tara Reid). Other cameos in­clude Jackie Collins, Jerry Springer, and Play­boy girls Holly Madi­son and Ken­dra Wilkin­son.

“I think it’s be­cause it’s such a fun movie. There’s no short­age now of peo­ple who would love to be taken out by a shark, just so they could put it on their re­sume,” Zier­ing says.
