Sharknado 3 To Feature Ann Coulter as Vice President

It was announced today that political commentator Ann Coulter will play the role of vice president in SyFy's Sharknado 3. The movie, which is the third in SyFy's "so-bad-it's-good" Sharknado franchise about a tornado that sparks a series of shark attacks, is set to debut on the network on July 1.

Coulter will be joined by Mark Cuban, who has been cast as president.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Launching in July, Sharknado 3 will be set in Washington, D.C., this time and, per Syfy, will "cause mass destruction in the nation's capital" before it roars down the Eastern Seaboard.

Entrepreneur/Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban of Shark Tank will play the president, while conservative commentator/author Coulter will play the vp.

Per IMDB, Coulter's other movie credits include a few documentaries and Fox's short-lived 1/2 Hour News Hour. This appears to be her first scripted role playing someone other than a parodied version of herself.
