It’s official, Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus has jumped the shark. Then again, it’s possible he may have just dodged it, we don’t know for sure.

“Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens,” the comedy/horror slapstick movie is coming to our TV sets on July 31and it’s bringing with it a whole lot of Jay DeMarcus. Truth be told, we don’t know how much Jay there will be as we’ve only seen the trailer for the movie, but with a pretty decent role as the manager of the Shark World Hotel in Las Vegas, we can only hope there is a lot.

Jay has been broadening his horizons well past his bass over the past decade and “Sharknado 4” is far from his first rodeo in the film world. The musician, producer and songwriter has acted in a number of outlets, ranging from the TV series “Nashville” to some things that were a bit more of a stretch for him like the TV mini-series “To Appomattox,” “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” and going all the way back to 2006 when he appeared in the sitcom “Yes Dear.”

For those who haven’t yet seen any of the “Sharknado” movies, they are pure fun with no reality injected whatsoever. The entire franchise is built on tornadoes, but inside of those tornadoes are, you guessed it — flying sharks. The movies are all stocked with a variety of actors, reality stars, comedians, TV personalities, and sports and music stars.

It’s definitely just mind candy, but the movies are actually hysterical. Stupid funny, but funny none the less. In toda’ys day and age where every other story on the news is about some mass shooting or politicians raging at each other, isn’t mindless entertainment where you can just laugh a good thing?
