Heâ€™ll return to the showâ€™s Los Angeles set in May for an arc that will start airing in mid-June. TheÂ Baywatch star got his start in TV by starring on the popular sudser from 1975 to 1982.â€œIn 1976, Bill Bell, creator of Americaâ€™s No. 1 soap opera, took a chance on a young and very green actor,â€ Hasselhoff said in a statement given exclusively to EW.com. â€œPlaying Snapper in 850 shows during the six years I appeared molded my craft, my attitude and my work ethic. Being asked to come back to appear in several episodes gives me a chance to say thanks, as I have an amazing amount of respect and heartfelt emotion for Bill, his family and my time on Young and the Restless. I just hope I can remember all those lines.â€ItÂ seems likely that Hasselhoff will address his return toÂ Restless in hisÂ upcoming reality show for A&E, but CBS could not confirm.
