“Sharknado 2: The Second One” will be chomping up SyFy this July and there has been some new casting news from everyone’s favorite schlocky shark film. Video game, film and television actor D.C. Douglas has confirmed on Twitter that he recently wrapped filming a cameo sequence for the film.
Douglas didn’t reveal any character details or plotpoints, but he did say that he left the set much dirtier and “gooey-er” than when he arrived.
“It was probably the quickest and hardest one day shoot in my life, while also being glorious fun” he said in a statement, “but what made it special was that many fans on twitter were hoping I’d be in it since I’ve been in several Asylum films in the past. Now I can say this performance is specifically for my awesome niche fanbase.”
When asked for more details, Douglas was only able to say, “#Sharnado2. It’s the only thing I’m allowed to say!”
“I can’t even tell you behind the camera details… Like how the sharks are a little full of themselves since the first one became a huge hit, or how there were a few inter-species affairs happening. I just can’t. But hey: #Sharknado2,” he said.
You might know Douglas’ voice from the games “Resident Evil” and “Mass Effect” and from the cartoon “Transformers: Rescue Bots.” If you’re an avid SyFy viewer, you’ve probably seen Douglas as the doomed captain in “Titanic II.” In “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” you’ll be able to see Douglas along with Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, Billy Ray Cyrus, Judd Hirsch and Mark McGrath.
Currently, you can see Douglas in the cult film, “Apocalypse Kiss,” playing an OCD serial killer, and on CBS’s “Days Of our Lives” playing a recurring, mysterious character. Also, Douglas will be making more than a dozen personal appearances at anime and videogame conventions throughout the states and the United Kingdom in 2014.
