AOLTV recently interviewed David Hasselhoff, and I must say, it was one of the most refreshing interviews I’ve read recently, amidst all the others that just like to take jabs at him without even getting to know the real David Hasselhoff. It was so nice to read what David’s been upto, what he wants to do, and have the interview show what a nice, down to earth guy he really is.
So get out your DVRs, because David just filmed a segment for CBS’ reality show ‘Big Brother’ which airs Sunday, July 24 right before ‘Same Name’ premieres on the same network.
What’s in a name? Well, a lot actually, if it’s the same name as an international star. CBS’ new reality show ‘Same Name’ (premieres Sun., July 24, 9PM ET) connects some regular people with familiar monikers with the celebs they share a name with. Celebs like Kathy Griffin, Reggie Bush and Mike Tyson will all meet their nominal dopplegangers this season.
But first up: Actor, singer and all-around Hoff-tastic name-dropper David Hasselhoff gets to meet and swap lives with David Haseloff Jr, an electrical technician and landscaper from Lake Jackson, Texas. (No, they aren’t spelled exactly the same way, but that’s pretty damn close.)
I caught up with The Hoff this morning while he was on the set shooting something fun at the ‘Big Brother’ house to promote the show. He opened up about throwing his name twin to the wolves, making him join him on stage at a concert in Germany, and finding out that they’re really not that different.
He also gave some more details on his ‘Sons of Anarchy’ guest spot this season. We know he’s playing a former porn star, but he also told us what his dirty nickname is, and that he gets to torture Tom Arnold (who plays porn producer Caruso on the show), which was “a lot of fun.”
So what other shows would Hasselhoff like to guest star on? Paging a certain long-running medical drama! We might’ve just found you a new McDreamy …
