Sharknado: The 4th Awakens makes a much anticipated release this weekend! The movie's star Ian Ziering talks about it with Part-Time Justin of the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show on B101.7!

In a awkward, yet funny interview, Part-Time Justin opens by clearing the air on the proper pronunciation of Ian's name. He asked, "why do you pronounce it eye-an and not ee-an?" Ian quickly replied, "it's just what my mom named me." Justin admits how he struggled by pronouncing ee-an and not eye-an, but he's got it now. Ian not amused by the conversation replied, "well, thanks bud."

The show talks about Ian's lack of having a sense of humor, when I think it's more of a case of it being a dry sense of humor.

Ian does get a chance to discuss the cultural phenomenon that is Sharknado, and how it ended being much than he thought it would be when it came out.  Hey, when brilliance is created, it will be cherished!

Here, give a listen to the interview, as heard on the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show on B101.7!

I mean, the big movie event is here! Watch Sharknado: The 4th Awakens when it debuts on SyFy at 7 p.m. Sunday night (July 31st).  If the trailer is any sign of things to come, movie greatness is about to happen!
