Ian Ziering thought ‘Sharknado’ would end his career

Ian Ziering’s new Syfy movie "Zombie Tidal Wave" promises much of the same bonkers circumstances as his successful "Sharknado" films. In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Ziering said he’d been skeptical of signing on for the "Sharknado" franchise. “I couldn’t see how there’d be any quality to the content,” the "BH90210" star said. “If James Cameron came to me with this script, I’d be all over it, but I told my wife, ‘I can’t do this. It’s going to be the end of my career.’ And, with my daughter Mia in her arms and Penna in her belly, she said, ‘Oh, no, you need to go to work.’ And it was a slap of reality to me. All of a sudden, it wasn’t about me, it wasn’t about my career. It was about providing for my family, and that’s a no-fail endeavor.”
