Gary Busey joins cast of Piranha 3DD

Sequel now features 60% more teeth

Gary Busey has been cast in an unknown role in the upcoming Piranha 3DD.

When the cast for the hastily-arranged sequel was first announced, it was met with a universal shrug.

Without some of the better actors from the first film, including Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Elisabeth Shue, and Christopher Lloyd (i.e. the main top-billed cast), the sequel is starting to feel more and more like a cash-in.

The addition of Busey should at least bring a bit more fun, and is in keeping with the film’s ridiculous title.

The sequel is being directed by John Gulager (Feast) and stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), Matt Bush (Adventureland), Chris Zylka (The Amazing Spider-Man), and David Koechner (Anchorman).

Piranha 3DD is released 23 November 2011.

Are you looking forward to this movie? Does the addition of Busey excite you?  Let us know below!

      Well the 2010 Pirahna was a tongue in cheek, like Lake Placid with more cleavage. This was evident by the appearace of Jaws very own Richard Dreyfus as the first victim and readers of FHM and Loaded was the target audience so theres no surprise you ended up with what amounted to a 2 hour Pirelli calender. Alexander Aja is no fool, he wanted it to over the top and offensive, becuase lets be fair, recent horror offerings have been tame in comparison. Think how bad it would have been if had beeen directed by bland-offenders like Brett Ratner or Len Wiseman

      @dalidab1982 - I'd rather eat my own feet than watch a film by Kurt Wimmer.

      I know you're being serious. I know it's your own opinion. It's this dumb 'dick job' (whatever that is)'s opinion that I can't take you seriously as you seem to have the consistency in opinions of a meth-addicted gerbil with ADHD. Mmmkay?
