Once upon a time, Baywatch was one of the most popular television shows in the world, which made series star David Hasselhoff one of the most watched actors in the world. Pamela Anderson’s C.J. Parker may have grabbed all of the headlines, but it was Hasselhoff’s Mitch Buchannon who served as the show’s constant center, appearing in every season of the original show before making the jump to the ill-fated Baywatch: Hawaii. He was a known commodity before this series (Knight Rider, anyone?), but the man’s legacy will ultimately revolve around him running shirtless on a beach in extreme slow motion.
And since he probably doesn’t have anything better to do these days, Hasselhoff officially signed on to appear in the upcoming film version of Baywatch a few weeks ago. Now, set pictures have arrived online, showing him standing alongside the one and only Dwayne Johnson. This is what happens when two completely separate pop culture hemispheres collide.

Even though Pamela Anderson is still figuring some things out regarding a potential appearance in the forthcoming Baywatch movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, one of the stars of the original TV series isn’t wasting any time locking down a role in the movie.
A David Hasselhoff Baywatch cameo of some sort has been confirmed, and this comes straight from the set of the movie from Dwayne Johnson himself. So there’s no need to hassle The Hoff about whether or not he’ll be part of the movie. Read More »
The original Sharknado was ironically entertaining, making for some absolutely ridiculous, intentionally terrible, B-movie fare. The success of the mind-numbing, inconceivable action horror film resulted in Sharknado: The Second One. And now we’re in the midst of a trilogy coming together.
Since the weekend is usually reserved for making decisions that you’ll immediately regret, you couldn’t ask for a better time to watch the first teaser trailer for the unnecessary made-for-TV sequel Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, chock full of cameos from Hollywood’s worst.
Check out the Sharknado 3 trailer after the jump! Read More »

There’s still no word on when Stretch might make its way to theaters or VOD, but in the meantime director Joe Carnahan has been doling out delightful tidbits for us to enjoy. The more he reveals, the stranger this film looks, and we definitely mean that as a compliment.
The latest Stretch scene may just take the cake, though. It involves an epic profanity-laced rant from David Hasselhoff, who is apparently none too pleased with Patrick Wilson‘s lack of respect. Hit the jump to watch the new Stretch clip featuring David Hasselhoff, plus a few more scenes.

To many Marvel fans, Samuel L. Jackson is Nick Fury. Not only has Jackson played the character in five different MCU films over the past five years, the Ultimate version of the character was actually modeled after Jackson — years before Iron Man came out.
But there was a time long ago (well, 1998) when David Hasselhoff was Nick Fury. And while most people seem to have forgotten that by now, the Hoff hasn’t. In fact, he’s pretty sure that he’s still the better Nick Fury, and he’d like the chance to play the role again.

With the Fast and Furious movies making billions for Universal, it’s no surprise other studios are trying to make their own car films. And if those films are based on well-known properties, that’s even better. Need for Speed is currently in production at DreamWorks, and now The Weinstein Company is moving ahead with a film based on the Eighties TV show Knight Rider.
Brad Copeland, who wrote the 2007 hit Wild Hogs, as well as TV shows Arrested Development and Grounded for Life, has been hired to pen the screenplay about a man who fights crime in his smart, talking car. The original series ran from 1982-1986 and made a star of David Hasselhoff. NBC rebooted the show in 2008, but that only ran one season. The film will presumably start fresh rather than relying on that TV reboot. Read More »

In this current remake-happy cinematic climate, that Gone With the Wind is being eyed for a do-over isn’t much of a shocker — but the name behind it certainly is. In an interview with NextMovie, former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff expressed his desire to star in a remake of the classic romance from 1939, and even offered up one idea about the casting.
Hasselhoff told the site that his manager had been unhappy with him for signing on to the ultra-campy Piranha 3DD. “He wants me to do a Knight Rider film or Nick Fury, which I was supposed to do, or a remake of Gone With the Wind,” Hasselhoff said. Later in the conversation, he brought up the potential Gone With the Wind project again. “Hopefully the Gone With the Wind will come, hopefully something great will happen.”
Naturally, the conversation then turned to who could tackle the iconic Scarlett O’Hara role opposite Hasselhoff’s Rhett Butler. Hasselhoff suggested Rachel Weisz, though he initially referred to her as “Rachel Rice.” “I think she’s hot,” he said.
