Sports mogul, entrepreneur and “Shark Tank” mainstay Mark Cuban is expanding his “shark” brand — so to speak. The business mogul will play the U.S. president (with conservative political commentator and author Ann Coulter as his vice president) in the upcoming “Sharknado 3,” the third instalment in Syfy network’s ongoing horror/pop culture TV film phenomenon.This time those uber-hungry super-sharks will be eating their way through Washington, D.C. — before working their way down the East Coast to Florida.Set to premiere in July, the third “Sharknado” will again star Ian Ziering and Tara Reid and include the previously announced cameos by BoDerek as Reid’s mom, part-time Chicagoan Jerry Springer as a manic tourist, ‘N Sync singer Chris Kirkpatrick as a lifeguard and Chris Jericho as a rollercoaster ride operator.Syfy obviously has high hopes for this third film. When “Sharknado 2: The Second One” aired last July 30, it became the most-watched original movie in the network’s history.• Needless to say, “Shark Tank” has provided quite the platform for the show’s stars to expand into other venues. Robert Herjavec will be competing on the upcoming 20th season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Plus Cuban himself is being seen in those AT&T television commercials that have been running in heavy rotation.
