'Sharknado 4' Casts Gary Busey (as Tara Reid's Dad), Cheryl Tiegs, Four Others


By Matt Webb Mitovich

Somewhat amazingly, Gary Busey has yet to appear in a Sharknado motion picture. That gross oversight will be rectified when the film vet/reality-TV personality plays dad to Tara Reid in Sharknado 4.

Also on board for the Syfy franchise’s fourquel is supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, playing hero Fin’s “flower child” mother, Raye. David Hasselhoff in turn will reprise his role as Fin’s father Gil.

Syfy also announced that Tommy Davidson (In Living Color), Cody Linley (Hannah Montana), Imani Hakim (Everybody Hates Chris) and Masiela Lusha (George Lopez) have been cast as, respectively, tech titan Aston Reynolds, Fin and April’s grown son Matt, Matt’s Army pal Gabrielle, and Fin’s resourceful cousin Gemini.
