Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and rapper Biz Markie have joined the cast of the “Sharknado” sequel.

“Sharknado 2: The Second One” will debut in America on July 31, just over a year after the original movie aired and became an instant hit.

Salt-N-Pepa star Sandra Denton has also joined the cast alongside professional wrestler Kurt Angle.

They will play a former New York City mayor and a New York fire chief, respectively.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid will reprise their roles as Fin and April, while new cast members include Kelly Osbourne, Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath and Andy Dick.
