Ian Ziering sees the Sharknado franchise as one that will compete with Star Wars and Fast Furious for many years to come:
“I’m going to keep doing this until I get eaten… I see about 20 more installments in our future.”
This seems more like a desperate career wish than a likely industry scenario. The first Sharknado drew upon viral novelty interest. Like the girl who brings the gag dildos to the bachelorette party. It’s a good giggle until everyone feels ashamed for hoisting a rubber cock because they’re thirty and paralegals.
If you don’t have another idea, you shouldn’t get to make another movie. I don’t think we need a law, just maybe a vigilante group that makes the producers disappear in the desert. The second Sharknado features Andy Dick and Kelly Osbourne, which guarantees it will both suck and have cocaine breath. Michael Strahan, Kelly Ripa, and a host of other daytime TV personalities also get paid to point in the air and tell everybody they’re in a movie. The real tragedy is all the time Ziering spends on Sharknado could be spent telling glory days tales of being Steve on 90210 and banging his Playmate ex-wife. You throw in some Jennie Garth gang bang stories and you have a much better evening than watching Sharknado.

Despite being a year shy of 50, Ian Ziering is still in pretty decent shape. But I guess it’s easy to stay fit when all you have to do is occasionally play yourself in a movie or voice a cartoon mouse. The combination of being in good shape and needing a job are why Ian was a great fit to join the Chippendales show in Las Vegas, and he celebrated his first month of stripping for horny, old women by bringing in two of his favorite horny, old Beverly Hills, 90120 co-stars.
Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth were guests of honor at a Chippendales show over the weekend, and I assume that Gabrielle Carteris couldn’t make it because she’s dead. I may be wrong, but she was about 70 when that show first aired.

Even when Beverly Hills, 90210 was one of the biggest primetime soap operas in TV history, Ian Ziering was still the fourth most popular actor on the show, behind the two guys with sideburns and the white kid who thought he could rap. In fact, the only thing that saved him from being the least favorite guy on the show was that old dude who ran the Peach Pit. Not that I ever watched it.
But as Ian joined the Chippendales as their guest star at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas over the weekend, he reminded us of two things: A) Save your money, because even the most popular actors in the world can wake up tomorrow and have no job; and B) Fuck it, because there’s always someone willing to pay you to take your shirt off.
