Sharknado? Crazy? How could those two words ever meet?! *insert heavy sarcasm into previous text* But beyond the hella-impossible weather phenomenon and whole-human devouring sharks that appear in the now notorious film franchise, there are more wildly wacky facts that will shock the sci-fi-shark-movie-lover in you. Here are 12 crazy things you didn’t know about the Sharknado franchise.
12. Sharknado Starring…Steve Guttenberg?
Before Ian Ziering stepped into the shark-slaying lead role in Sharknado, the character of Fin Shepard was first offered to Steve Guttenberg. Guttenberg is perhaps best known for his roles in the ’80s hit movies Police Academy (as well as its sequels) and Three Men and a Baby. But apparently he wasn’t up to facing a shark-filled freak weather phenomenon and Steve Guttenberg turned down the role resulting in Ian Ziering being cast instead.Photo by MediaPunch/REX
