Bo Derek has signed on to play the role of May, the mother of Tara Reid's character April, in the upcoming SyFy production of Sharknado 3. Tara Reid and Celebrity Apprentice contestant Ian Ziering have the Sharknado movies to thank for putting bread on their tables.
In addition to Bo Derek, other celebrities (?) have signed on to play roles in Sharknado 3, including billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban, Ann Coulter, Jerry Springer, 'NSync's Chris Kirkpatrick, and Chris Jericho.
Sharknado 3 must have some kind of draw to land the Shark Tank star and political commentator.

Bo Derek is, of course, best know for her role in the 1979 film 10, and her signature cornrow braids she sported while running in her bikini across a sandy beach. 10 also starred Dudley Moore, Julie Andrews, and Robert Webber.
Jerry Springer must have missed the memo titled 'Spoiler Alert' when he signed on to play in Sharknado 3.
Great fun being in #Sharknado3. But -- spoiler alert — it doesn't end well for me.

Will you be checking out Bo Derek and the rest of the 'star-studded' cast of Sharknado 3 when it appears on SyFy this coming summer?
Do you think we've seen the end of the list of cast members or will a few A-listers also sign on?
