39 Celebrity Cameos In 'Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens,' From Stacey Dash To YouTube Stars
It's the middle of summer and you know what that means — it's time for another Sharknado movie. The fourth installment in the campy and wildly popular SyFy movie series premiered on Sunday night and it's filled with everything you could ever want: Sharks, sharks in tornadoes, other different kinds of tornados, and so many celebrity cameos. I have kept track of every celebrity cameo in Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens so you don't have to, because it's a long list of people who have come along for this Sharknado adventure.
Since the first Sharknado captivated viewers 2013, Finn Shepard (played Ian Ziering) has stepped up to help save the world from aggressive sharks hellbent on making landfall in killer twisters that threaten us all. The campy sequels have brought Finn, his trusty chainsaw, and his family to New York City, Washington, D.C., and all over the country. Along the way, they've encountered many famous faces, who have either played themselves (hello, Al Roker) or have taken on the role of someone very different (hello, Stacey Dash as the mayor of Chicago). And in this fourth iteration of the outrageous SyFy movie series, the list of celebs goes on and on and on. (Just keep in mind that recognizing all of these celebs might require a little bit of a memory jog. It's not exactly like Kanye West is showing up to fend off sharks.)
