File this under 90s dream casting! It’s just been confirmed that David Hasselhoff will play Ian Ziering’s father in the forthcoming ‘Sharknado 3’!

This might make our heads explode! Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has been announced to play former Beverly Hills 90210 star, Ian Ziering‘s father in the third Sharknado film. That’s not all the parenting casting scoop, though! The science fiction thriller, which will debut on Syfy in July, will also star Tara Reid and we’ve got the info on who’s playing her mom!

‘Sharknado 3’: David Hasselhoff Cast

Oh, father dearest!

As if we weren’t excited enough already for Sharknado 3, the casting just keeps getting better! First, Tara and Ian were confirmed to reprise their roles, and then thanks to EXCLUSIVE pics we obtained on the set, we found out that Chris Jericho will also be a part of the third installment.

Now, in what might be the most exciting casting news yet, David Hasselhoff will take on the role of Ian’s father. David will play Gilbert Sheperd, papa to Fin, the superhero played by Ian.

Some parental casting has also been announced for Tara’s character. In keeping with the iconic swimsuit wearer theme, Bo Derek, the swimsuit model, will play mother to Tara’s character, April. Her name, obviously, will be May.

The Crazy Casting Of ‘Sharknado 3’

The absolutely bonkers casting does not stop there, though. It was also just confirmed that general non-actors Ann Coulter and Mark Cuban will make appearances in the film.

Crazier yet are the roles which Ann and Mark will play! The conservative commentator (and regarded crazy lady) and Shark Tank entrepreneur will play– get ready– the president and vice president of the United States of America.

And we thought flying sharks were terrifying!

Additional casting includes Jerry Springer (seriously) playing a tourist named Mr. White and Chris Kirkpatrick playing, naturally, a pool life guard.

What do you think of the Sharknado 3 casting? Are you excited for the new film?
