It’s a new awakening for Stacey Dash…
The 49-year-old part-Mexican American actress and Fox News commentator has been cast in Syfy’s Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.
Dash, best known for starring in the 1995 feature film Clueless and the television series spinoff of the same name, will portray the mayor of Chicago in the fourth installment of the Sharknado series.
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Fin (Ian Ziering) and his family have been blissfully sharknado-free since. But now the shark-infested tornadoes are back. Tara Reid is set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted campaign to determine whether April lives or dies. David Hasselhoff (as Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise their Sharknado 3 roles. New additions to the cast are Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.
Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.
The next iteration of the Sharknado franchise will premiere on Sunday, July 31.
