Tara Reid

REJECTED

From 'Sharknado' Sequel

EXCLUSIVE

0726_tara_reid_sharknado_2_article
Tara Reid's days of hunting airborne rope-climbing freeway-dwelling sharks are OVER -- 'cause we know producers are drawing up their cast wish list for the "Sharknado" sequel ... and she ain't on it.

Sources connected to the production tell TMZ ... producers had a meeting this past week to discuss plans for the New York-based sequel -- and the only actor they want back for round 2 is Ian Ziering.

Of course, Ian slaughtered more sharks than anyone in the original -- killing fish from Santa Monica to Beverly Hills and even into THE VALLEY!!

Tara played Ian's estranged wife in the flick -- and survived the massive shark attack (even when the sharks broke into her HOUSE!!) -- but Sharknado 2 is not in her future.

As for Ian, sources say both he and Tara scored around $50k for Part 1.  Ian should rake in a lot more for the sequel.  And good news ... we're guessing he's available.

Sadly, Tara knows a thing or two about rejection in Hollywood -- just ask the bouncers at Hyde.

Forget Tara! They better sign the bikini wearing, shotgun toting, propane bomb throwing bartender who was saved at the end of the movie! She was worth saving!

Producers probably realized the limits of success the sequel to the Internet/media hyped surprise sensation would have, and could only afford one large paycheck to pay. People are talking about Tara Reid, and perhaps her career will be bouncing back in spite or even because of this latest news. Compared to what's in today's tabloids, Tara Reid's missteps are very minor by today's standards. I don't even blame her for the dress mishap. She had bad surgery, she probably have numbness in the area in question, and didn't feel the fallen strap. The fact that she even did "Sharknado" shows that she is still serious about a career in this business, and will pay her dues all over again to have it back again. Some others would have walked away from the business in to obscurity rather than do projects like this. But, she wants this career,she wants to remain an actress, even if it means more crappy Sy-Fy channel movies.

Tara is still a babe and just cause she likes to party down sometimes is NO REASON for all those 'never been losers' to talk trash...

Truthfully, she did a bad performance in the movie. Maybe, she should find something she loves or has much experience.

People diss her, but she was in American Pie (comedy of a generation for many), The Big Lebowski (classic), and now this kitschy, soon to be hipster/cult icon. Not a terrible career, really .

Yeah, I don't get the hate for Tara Reid. Not a strong long career but she was in American Pie and The Big Lewbowski are awesome movies. That is better than Ok. More importantly, she was in Scrubs. And actually some people do only know her for playing Jordan's sister.
