Sharknado 2: The Second One featured almost as many celebrities as flying finned fish, including Kelly Osbourne, Wil Wheaton, Andy Dick, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. But perhaps the most memorable of the cameos were Matt Lauer and Al Roker. With remarkably deadpan performances, the Today show cohorts (playing themselves) charted the shark-filled storm's bite into the Big Apple, providing some of the funniest moments in last summer's shark-tacular sequel.
Tara Reid is riding the Sharknado wave as far as it will carry her.

Sharknado 2: The Second One, the follow-up to last summer's surprisingly popular-for-all-the-wrong-reasons Sharknado, set a record as the network's most watched original movie ever, the network announced Thursday.
The polar vortex wasn't the only freakish weather system to invade New York City this winter. The sequel to Syfy's Sharknado, last summer's over-the-top, Twitter-busting pop-culture phenomenon, was filmed amid frigid conditions throughout the Big Apple. Ian Ziering and Tara Reid reprise their roles as recently reconciled couple Fin and April, who barely survived last year's series of shark-infested waterspouts that tore through Los Angeles.
On the set of Sharknado 2: The Second One in February, Ziering wasn't feeling the pressure of expectations to top the original, which spurred more than 300,000 tweets during its original broadcast. "Either you like it or you don't like it," the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum says. "I didn't have high hopes for the first movie, and look what happened."
Duck for cover! The sharks are back!
Ian Ziering returns in Sharknado 2, the follow-up to Syfy's surprisingly awesome and totally shameless flick. This time around, Fin (Ziering) is tasked with saving the day in the Big Apple. From chainsaws and guns to even his bare hands, Fin stops at nothing to kill every last shark swept up in the hurricane-like tornado. And with cameos from celebs including Kelly Osbourne, Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Billy Ray Cyrusand more, the sequel has plenty of bite.
