The celebrity cameos come flying at you in Syfy’s “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” the campy follow-up to last summer’s pop culture phenomenon.
Some of the sequel’s stars turn into shark food before you can even figure out who they are.
Here’s a run down of the familiar faces — and a few not-so-familiar ones — in order of their appearance in “Sharknado 2,” debuting at 8 p.m. CDT Wednesday. Some spoilers lurk ahead but, come on, this ain’t “Homeland.”

1. Kelly Osbourne
Ozzy’s purple-haired daughter takes a ride on the crazy plane as a flight attendant for Santa Mira Airlines — and Fin Shepard’s (Ian Ziering) No. 1 fangirl.
2. Kelly Oxford
The Canadian Twitter queen and best-selling author (pictured) plays an airline passenger with a strong nose and weak bladder — both of which soon become the least of her problems.
6. Matt Lauer
From the Sochi Olympics to sharknado breaking news, this veteran “Today” anchor is one versatile journo. (Not that “Good Morning America” plugs ever stood a chance; Syfy is part of the NBC Universal family.)
8. Downtown Julie Brown
An MTV VJ back in the good old days when MTV actually played music videos, the British-born TV personality (pictured right) swapped her funky outfits for a nondescript set of scrubs at Manhattan General Hospital, where she plays a nurse.
9 & 10. Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan
The “Live! With Kelly and Michael” hosts are left to scramble after April Wexler (Tara Reid) bails on their syndicated morning chatfest.
12. Stephanie Abrams
The Weather Channel’s leggy meteorologist gives viewers the low-down on the storm, complete with one helluva weather map graphic.
15. Al Roker
“Today” weather man promises a storm unlike any other — and he witnessed that Ann Curry debacle.
18. Thomas P. Vitale
Syfy’s vice president of programming orders hot dogs for the whole family at Citi Field. A lot of Vitales are listed in the credits. It’s good to be the boss.
19. Richard Kind
The “Mad About You” and “Spin City” star does a turn as a former Mets all-star who does some unusual pinch hitting.
20. Anthony C. Ferrante
The subway train’s guitar-strumming busker directed both “Sharknado” films. Deep down, I think he really wants to be a rock star.
23. Benjy Bronk
The “Howard Stern Show” fixture (pictured right) plays a homeless guy warning passersby about the imminent end of civilization. Turns out he’s kinda right.
24. Daymond John
Very clever to rope a “Shark Tank” mentor into the mix. Gotta love this Wall Street tycoon’s run-in with Lady Liberty.
28. Michael Gelman
Highland Park native (pictured below, holding a Daytime Emmy) and producer of “Live With Kelly and Michael” — not to mention Regis before that — urges folks to stay calm. And then he proceeds to lose his head.
