The cast of "Sharknado 3" just added a host of guest stars -- including Ann Coulter and Mark Cuban -- according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Sharknado 3," the third movie in SyFy's terrible/ultra-campy franchise, will take place in Washington, D.C., and according to SyFy the sharknado will "cause mass destruction in the nation's capital" before making its way to Florida. Mark Cuban, entrepreneur and judge on "Shark Tank," has been cast as the role of president, and in what some might consider a terrifying twist, conservative darling Ann Coulter will play the vice president.

Coulter and Cuban were not the only new faces added to "Sharknado 3." From the Hollywood Reporter:

"They join a rapidly growing list of guest stars set to cameo in the third film, including Bo Derek as May, the mother to star Tara Reid's April; Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; 'N Sync's Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will play Bruce, a roller-coaster ride operator."

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will also reprise their roles in "Sharknado 3," though, sadly, Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath will not return to the popular SyFy franchise.
