A Look at the Cast of 2 Headed Shark Attack

With only two Asylum films yet to be released in 2011 - the found-footage mystery-project The Amityville Haunting  and the already-aired Zombie Apocalypse - I thought it apt to take a look ahead to the first of the studio's 2012 slate, the destined-for-greatness 2 Headed Shark Attack.

The film, directed by Christopher Ray (Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus, Almighty Thor) from a story by Edward DeRuiter (3 Musketeers) and a script from yours truly (A Haunting in Salem), boasts a triumvirate of talents in the leads - Carmen Electra, Brooke Hogan and Charlie O'Connell. I've previously made note of their and a couple others' qualifications, but as this is a BIG cast, there are a lot of people left to highlight. So here's the latest crop of actors set to portray the unfortunate lot of semester-at-sea-students run afoul of nature's most vicious mistake, the 2-headed shark.

Actor Geoff Ward will tackle the role of "Cole," the strong, popular sort. A South Florida native, Ward has been acting on film since 2004, appearing in such projects as Dark Queen, Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation and TV series "The Glades."

Anthony E. Valentin plays "Dakilla," one of two Filipino crew members (the other being Gerald Webb's "Han."). Valentin has also been appearing on screen since 2004, The Fiesta Grand, Fast Food and an episode of "Burn Notice" among his credits.

In the role of "Alex" is actor Benjamin James. 2 Headed Shark Attack looks to be his first feature, but he was worked in television, appearing in the programs "Magic City" and "Wicked Attraction."

Michael Dicarluccio shall inhabit the character of "Ethan." This is also Dicarluccio's first feature, though not his first credits; he has previous appeared as himself in the documentary short Consequences, and as an actor in the short I'm Still On Probation, Remember?

And then there is a quartet of brand-newbies, actors making their first credited appearance on screen: Lauren Vera, Tihirah Taliaferro, Casey King Leslie and Marckenson Charles. Lucky kids these, starting their careers on a film sure to become a cult classic.

Might still be a name or two out there waiting to be revealed, but for the most part, these guys, added to all the others, make the core 20 characters in 2 Headed Shark Attack. That's a lot of bait. See for yourself how it goes down when 2 Headed Shark Attack hits DVD on January 31st of next year.
