Sharknado 2 's Dante Palminteri: The CFQ Interview

2014-07-28-Sharknado_2_5d7fe40d58b04585b4688d984b80378c620x372_410.jpgIt's raining sharks, hallelujah! Or maybe whether you're making that exclamation depends on how highly refined your appreciation of irony is. Yes, Sharknado 2: The Second One is here, moving the mayhem to New York (to the producers' credit, largely the real New York), larding the proceedings with copious cameos (hallloooo Andy Dick, Perez Hilton, Al Roker, etc, etc.), and wasting no time in throwing airborne maneaters at hapless victims (why are there sharknados? Who cares -- look, SHARKS!).

One of the major players trying to avoid becoming shark bait is Dante Palminteri, son of Chazz and making his major(?) film debut with this role. In this exclusive interview, he takes us behind the scenes of this landmark cinematic event, certain to be the most monumental film of Summer 2014. Okay, my ironyometer just shorted out, sorry. I'm going to go watch Harlan County, USA to recover.
