I’m Far More Excited Than I Should Be For ‘Sharknado 2′
All day today, I've been like a kid on Christmas morning. Why? Because tonight is the premier of Syfy's Sharknado 2: The Second One (9 PM ET).
Much to the chagrin of pretty much everyone I know (sans my dear friend Christian), I have been anxiously waiting for this movie's release since I first saw the original Sharknado.
Last July, the original Sharknado, one of many Syfy B-movies, came out of nowhere and basically took over the Internet. When I first started seeing tweets and Facebook posts about it, I was like "What the heck is a 'sharknado'?" and when I found out what it was, I didn't really feel the need to watch. That all changed one day this past Winter/Spring. It was on, we decided to watch it, and now I'm kind of addicted to its campiness.
What's going to be new in Sharknado 2?
"More sharks," says Tara Reid, who stars with Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering.
Sharknado 2 adds even more star power with actors like Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Judah Friedlander, Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick and Robert Klein.
Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan will also play themselves in the film.
Is it campy? Yes. Is the acting pretty terrible? Yes. But, that's what makes these movies awesome!
So anyway, if you need me tonight around 9 p.m., you'll know where to find me - camped out in front of my TV getting my Sharknado fix.
