David Hasselhoff: What's he up to?

There are countless websites devoted to David Hasselhoff, most of them German, and many more ridiculing him. This isn't one of them, but I'll at least spend a post doing so. Dave just recently filed for divorce from his wife Pamela Bach, a union which lasted 16 years which in Hollywood terms is an eternity!

After his popularity wained after Baywatch and the realisation that only Germans think he has singing talent, Hasselhoff went on a spree of substance abuse, hitting "rock bottom" in his own words, in 2002. Said binge occurred after Hasselhoff checked himself into Betty Ford Clinic in an attempt to quit the booze, but then checked back out after a day of treatment, holed himself up in a hotel in California,and he proceeded to down the contents of his mini-bar.

Following this, Hasselhoff checked back into rehab to complete his treatment and vowed to stick to an alcohol-free existence. This lasted until June 2004, when he was nabbed for drunk driving after police spotted him behind the wheel, acting as if he expected KITT to take control of his car at any moment.

Horrifically, Hasselhoff will have to get his driving skills back up to speed, as he is headed for a starring role in the big-screen adaptation of Knight Rider, which has been in in the works for some time now. He's is slated to reprise his role of Michael Knight in the film, which is expected to begin shooting this summer with the aim of a December release date. More on this potential disaster when I get it.

Knight Rider the movie? Wow, I'm sure it'll be fantastic.
This is one childhood memory I don't want spoiled, so I'm being deliberately optimistic.

As long as they make a trilogy out of it I'll be happy.

A trilogy!!!! Cubaboy, keep your deviant and sick ideas on your own blog dammit!!!

Seriously though I don't think this 'movie' is going to come to pass if the comments on the IMDB board are anything to go by:

I agree the Hoff is an isidious threat to democracy, he was hell bent on world domination with his weapon of mass titillation, Baywatch . He must be stopped! ;)

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

They're doing a movie of that too apparently, but the Hoff ain't attached to the project. His speedo days are over.

And thats a good thing. I never want to see him in speedos again.
Not even sure the Baywatch movie is a good idea, I may as well watch porn! The plot will be better

All these remakes of classic TV shows into movies is upsetting. Leave our childhood alone Hollywood, you don't need to rape everything.
