Syfy is planning "Jaws"-meets-"Jersey Shore" epic for the summer 2012, and Syfy just released the cast via EW.com, the online arm of Entertainment Weekly. A member of "Jersey Shore" will be onboard. Here's Syfy's program description, and look who else.
“Jersey Shore Shark Attack" unfolds during the July Fourth weekend at -- where else?-- the Jersey Shore, where rare swarms of sharks are converging due to illegal underwater drilling. Now the angry sharks are on a rampage, devouring residents, and leaving it up to the locals to try and save the day.
[Tony] Sirico is Captain Sallie, the wise veteran of boardwalk life and lore. [Jack] Scalia is Moretti, former . . . beach bum and now police chief. [Paul] Sorvino portrays the possibly corrupt mayor and [William] Atherton is the greedy developer Dolan, who wants to tear down the boardwalk to build a luxury resort where the [regulars] will not be welcome. Vinny Guadagnino plays the on-scene reporter Conte and Joey Fatone appears as himself.
Pull line: "Joey Fatone appears as himself."
