Arlington’s Role in ‘Sharknado’

Sharknado screen grab (courtesy @rickolivieri)(Updated at 9:55 a.m.) Last night, the campy made-for-TV movie Sharknado took Twitter by storm.

The low-budget film, which aired on the SyFy network, stars Tara Reid (American Pie), Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills, 90210) and John Heard (Home Alone). It seems that Arlington also played a bit part.

In one portion of the film, a scene clearly shows an Arlington police cruiser and fire engine.

At publication time, an Arlington police spokesman couldn’t be reached to confirm whether the shot was filmed exclusively for the movie or if it was simply stock footage appropriated by the producers.

Several Arlington notables were active on Twitter during the film. Among them: NBC News correspondent and Arlington resident Chuck Todd, Del. Alfonso Lopez and Del. Rob Krupicka.
