Hurricane Isaac was a tragic event, and today, it was revealed that it also robbed the American people of a great moment in cinematic history. LSU head football coach and noted grass-eater Les Miles was apparently cast in the Active Entertainment film “Ghost Shark” as the mayor of the town of Smallport. He was signed on and excited. He had practiced his best Boss Hogg impression and even told his mom that he finally booked that audition, but it never happened.
Active Entertainment, the studio behind such great films like “Arachnoquake,” “MonsterWolf” and “Swamp Shark,” is based in Louisiana and pitched Miles on the film. Les being Les, loved it. If only nature hadn’t reared its ugly head, we all would have a moment that could be cherished for generations. Miles, busy because of his day job, could no longer participate in the filming once production was moved and Ghostbuster’s Ernie Hudson was cast in his place. “Ghost Shark” aired on the SyFy network on Thursday, and while it is no Sharknado, it would have been much better with a Les Miles cameo or two.
