Everyone From David Hasselhoff to Anthony Weiner Is In the Sharknado 3 Trailer

Sharknado 3 Syfy

Posted by on

We know: the Sharknado franchise — that feels weird coming off the tongue — is easy and fun to laugh at, the lowest-hanging of fruit. But we actually have something good to say about it! The trailer for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! was released last week, and aside from being confidently self-aware of its B-movie status, Sharknado 3 may have the most diverse cast in the history of film.

Franchise regular Tara Reid returns, and the rest of the cast reads like a bizarro and greatly expanded Village People lineup. We’re going to ignore conciseness and rattle off all of the noteworthy cast members, because it truly is something beautiful — the Sistine Chapel of casting, if you will.

Reid is joined by — get ready, deep breath — David Hasselhoff, Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank‘s Mark Cuban, political commentator Ann Coulter, former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, former New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, Frankie Muniz, Jerry Springer, NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick, Ryan Kerrigan and Chris Kirkpatrick of the NFL’s Washington Redskins, former NBA player Rick Fox, wrestler Chris Jericho, former wrestler Maryse Ouellet, Playboy personalities Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson, SportsNation’s Michelle Beadle, Marcellus Wiley and Max Kellerman, Irish singing duo Jedward, Kathie Lee and Hoda, rapper Ray J, NASCAR driver Joey Logano, Police Academy‘s Michael Winslow, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards, former Welsh soccer player Neville Southall, Penn & Teller, singer Ne-Yo, The Incredible Hulk’s Lou Ferrigno, MythBusters’ Grant Imahara, and The Today Show‘s Savannah Guthrie, Matt Lauer, Natalie Morales and Al Roker.

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! premieres July 22nd at 9PM on Syfy. Now please excuse us while we figure out how to make a Sharknado 3 fantasy league.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Home Run

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
