Biggest surprise of the night – at least to me – was that David Hasselhoff will not be reprising his role as Mitch Buchannon in the new Baywatch movie. Editorial comment: a little disappointing, in my own opinion, as I loved Mitch and would’ve loved it if he reprised his role. We’ll have to see how ‘David Hasselhoff’ fits into this movie. It might just be a cameo, who knows.
David Hasselhoff is set to play himself in the new ‘Baywatch’ film, not his former character Mitch Buchannon.
David Hasselhoff is set to play himself in the new ‘Baywatch’ film.
The 59-year-old actor says he won’t be reprising his role as lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the big-screen version of the hit TV show and will instead appear as himself.
He said: ”I’ve just met the guy writing the film. I’m going to play myself.”
The former ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge is the only cast member certain to star in movie but it is rumored Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber could also appear.
David – who was one of the star performers at the White Nights of St. Petersburg festival last weekend – added to BANG Showbiz: ”There will be certain people in the movie for the original parts and we’re trying to make it a very cool, updated version.”
Pamela Anderson – who played long-running character CJ Lewis in the 90s series – is yet to be confirmed, although bosses are hoping the blonde babe will sign up.
David said: ”I don’t know. All I know is that they’ve had the script for four years now.”
