TNA Impact Wrestling” star and former WWE champion Kurt Angle has just secured a new movie role. According to PWInsider.com on March 7, Angle has been cast in the “Sharknado” sequel.

The official news is that Angle will play a New York City fire chief as the shark-filled tornados roar into the East coast. The original “Sharknado” took place in California, so the idea to make this one different is to switch coasts. This will give Angle something to do while he sits out of wrestling to allow his surgically repaired knee to heal up.

While Angle is a new actor in the movie, both Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will return and reprise the roles from their first film. According to the synopsis, Ziering’s character moved to New York City to avoid getting involved in another crazy situation like he did in the first movie. Much like “Jaws,” moving to a new location did not help because the shark infested tornados just followed him there.

The original “Sharknado” was so popular that it blew up Twitter the night that it aired. It ended up as a pop culture phenomenon and received a special one-night theatrical release for its successful run. The “Sharknado” sequel will also air on the SyFy Network and is scheduled to air on July 21.
