"Sharknado 2: The Second One" Takes a Bite Out of Twitter

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:31:40 +0000

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Sharknado 2: The Second One -- the sequel to SyFy's campy unexpected hit -- aired on the cable channel Wednesday night, and also made a splash, as expected, on social media.

While the original attracted plenty of attention from celebrities tweeting about the shark-filled shlock-fest, this installment was filled with famous names that joined Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Mark McGrath, and Vivica A. Fox in cameo roles.

Helping fight the carnivorous meteorological event this time around were Andy Dick, 30 Rock's Judah Friedlander, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, Al Roker and Matt Lauer, Will Wheaton, Kelly Osbourne, Billy Ray Cyrus, Judd Hirsch, Shark Tank entrepreneur Damon Dash, and Jared Fogle from those Subway commercials.

The sequel brought the sharks to New York City, and the snark back to Twitter. Here are some stars' reactions:

Luke Bryan - "Can't believe we are watching #Sharknado2"

Marlee Matlin - "OMG #Sharknado2TheSecondOne There are just no words..not even SIGNS. LOL"

Judah Friedlander - "Thank you @SharknadoSyfy the Academy just texted me. Just got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for 2015."

Will Wheaton - "If Tara Reid doesn't end this movie with a chainsaw for a hand, I don't even know why we got out of bed today." [Spoiler alert, she does]

Richard Roeper ‏- "Most unbelievable thing about this whole movie: Matt Lauer cutting to 'regularly scheduled programming' after slaying a shark on live TV."

Roger Corman - "The shark is a Jungian archetype. But not shark in a tornado. Jung has no idea what that means."
