Karl Stefanovic And Lisa Wilkinson's Big Announcement

They are some of Australia’s favourite TV personality’s, but nothing could prepare them for this…

Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson have a new job.. of reporting a fictional shark-infested tornado.

That’s right.

During Friday’s Today show, the pair shared a behind-the-scenes look of them filming a scene for upcoming flick Sharknado 5, in which they will play newsreaders covering the freak weather conditions.

'Well move over Robert Deniro and Cate Blanchett,' said Karl, before unveiling the news of his Hollywood debut. 

'You won't believe how horrifically bad we are,' laughed Lisa.  'It was only a matter of time before Hollywood came knocking,' she later added. 

Director Anthony C Ferrante has also joked about Karl and Lisa’s acting skills, saying '[Karl and Lisa are] playing themselves, so if they can't play themselves I think we're going to be in very big trouble.'  

Sharknado 5 will see the return of stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as they play shark-fighting married couple Fin Shepard and April Wexler.
