Days before the premiere of Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (Sunday, August 6 at 8pm on Syfy) comes Trailer Park Shark on Syfy. Sharknado star Tara Reid plays the lead, Billie Jean, who is desperate to kill a hungry shark that’s terrifying Soggy Meadows trailer park. In Trailer Park Shark, Reid is reunited with her American Pie co-star Thomas Ian Nicholas (Kevin). But it’s the animal hunter/collector who steals the scenes.
The man who loves taxidermy is portrayed by Dennis Haskins. He’s been acting since 1981 (he made his TV debut on Archie Bunker’s Place as a workman), but is best known for his role as principal Mr. Richard Belding on the Saved by the Bell franchise. Fun fact about Haskins: Before becoming an actor he was a manager for musicians including the late Gregg Allman (see Haskins’ tribute below). Trailer Park Shark premieres on Syfy on Wednesday, August 2 at 8pm.
Gregg and I crossed paths often and I had the pleasure and privilege of touring with him in the late 70’s and watched as The Allman Brothers reunited shortly after that. His hand on my shoulder, we walked through many crowds to the stage. Now I pray his hand is in God’s hand. God bless you, my friend, and your family. I will miss you. 🙁 #RIP @officialgreggallman
