Kelly Osbourne and former Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath have joined the cast of the “Sharknado” sequel.

The TV movie about a freak storm that rains killer sharks on Los Angeles became a phenomenon when it debuted last year and stars Tara Reid and Ian Ziering have already signed on for a New York-based follow-up.

They will be joined by Osbourne, McGrath, Vivica A. Fox, Andy Dick and Judd Hirsch, according to Deadline.com.

Reports suggest McGrath will play the brother-in-law of Ziering’s character Fin, while Osbourne has been cast as a flight attendant.

Returning to his TV roots in “Taxi,” Hirsch will portray a cab driver in “Sharknado 2: The Second One.”

Filming is scheduled to start later this month and the sequel is expected to hit TV screens this summer.
