Vodafone UK marked the 30 year anniversary of the first mobile call on its network with an event in London's Covent Garden last week between January 16-18. They opened a little group of temporary shops on "1984G Street" in an effort to take passers-by back to the mid-80s, with contests and prizes.

One Man Can Make A Difference: Glen Larson Tribute in TV Guide

David Hasselhoff has written a touching tribute Glen A. Larson, the creator of his hit show Knight Rider, insisting the TV mogul never got the respect he deserved.In his essay for America's TV Guide, the actor credits Larson with helping him land the lead role in the 1980s TV hit and reveals that at the height of the show's success, the only show on TV that enjoyed better ratings was The Cosby Show.Hasselhoff writes, "He and I just hit it off. He gave me a lot of freedom, and over the years we became friends. He was very proud of Knight Rider. With Knight Rider, we had a great statistic: We had more viewers per family than anyone except The Cosby Show... He never got the respect that he wanted or deserved. In his heyday, he had seven shows on the air at the same time."Larson, who also created hit detective series Magnum P.I. and The Fall Guy passed away at a hospital in Los Angeles on November 14, following a battle with cancer. He was 77.Source: ContactMusic, David's Twitter

Knight Rider to Return in Comic Book Form

The St. Louis publisher Lion Forge Comics is partnering with NBC Universal to write, develop and publish digital comics based on five NBC shows from the 1980s and '90s: Knight Rider, Airwolf,Miami Vice, Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell."From hugely popular characters such as Crockett and Tubbs, Zack Morris and Punky Brewster to highly stylized music and clothing choices, these TV franchises have had a significant impact on pop culture," said Lion Forge CEO David Steward in a statement.The company's goal is to extend "that influence by creating visually appealing and entertaining experiences on mobile devices for a whole new generation of fans."Among the writers on the projects are Joelle Sellner (Teen Titans), Jonathan London (Geekscape), Geoffrey Thorne (Leverage) and David Gorden (Catalyst Prime) while artists include Jason Johnson (Wetworks), Carl Reed and Lorenzo Lizana.The comics will debut later this year and will be available through the Amazon Kindle Bookstore, Apple's iBooks, Barnes & Noble's Nook Book Store and Kobo.KnightRiderOnline had this to add:

Not much is yet known about how much these comics will align with the Knight Rider many of us grew up with. However, when asked by Knight Rider Archives about this Geoff Thorne did say that it would be a "reboot. but you'll find all of it very familiar." We expect to find out more at San Diego Comic Con in two weeks.

Hasselhoff hopes for retro Knight Rider film

Knight Rider

By ALICIA RANCILIO, Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — David Hasselhoff still feels a connection with the younger generation, even though his popular TV series "Baywatch" has been off the air for more than a decade."When Justin Bieber comes up and goes, 'Hoff!' and then Selena Gomez says, 'It's so weird he loves you,' it's great. It just means that you're hip and it's cool," the 60-year-old actor said in a recent interview."Baywatch" aired from 1989 to 2000. Hasselhoff also starred in the TV series "Knight Rider," which aired from 1982 to 1986.To stay part of the conversation, Hasselhoff keeps busy and is always working. He stars in a Lifetime movie "The Christmas Consultant," opposite Caroline Rhea, that airs Saturday (8 p.m. EST). He will tweet backstage for MTV at Sunday's European Music Awards and play Captain Hook in a Peter Pan pantomime in December in Manchester, England.Hasselhoff talks about his various projects, his famous name and his hopes for a retro "Knight Rider" movie.AP: Would you ever want to do a full-time TV series again?Hasselhoff: It depends what the series would be. I've been approached by some dear friends who run 'The Office' and 'Ugly Betty' about doing a sitcom, being a part of an ensemble. I'd love to do that. I'd love to bring back more than anything kind of like 'Murder She Wrote,' or there's a great show in the U.K. called 'Lovejoy,' or 'Hart to Hart.' Some shows that have got some fun, (a) little tongue-and-cheek like Cary Grant, and play my age but still know that secretly (the character) is livin' hard, livin' fast and lovin' it because that's kind of where I'm at in my life.AP: You can act, sing, perform on the stage and judge talent competitions. Why do you like variety?Hasselhoff: I embrace everything. All I want to do is be onstage. A performer needs to perform. You need to work. I think that's why I've lasted so long. I grew up watching 'The Carol Burnett Show.' ... People are now beginning to see that I do variety. I do sing. I did do Broadway and the West End.AP: I'm sure you get a ton of offers. What do you say "no" to?Hasselhoff: I say 'no' to things that I can't laugh with where they're laughing at me and they're trying to do something that is a little bit over-the-edge. ... If you don't respect me you're not gonna get that respect back.AP: Does it ever amaze you how your last name is so popular?Hasselhoff: I think God has a sense of humor because they wanted me to change it. ... I was going to change it one time to David Michaels, but then I found out there was already a David Michaels. I took so much heat for the name Hasselhoff growing up, I'm gonna keep this name because I was proud of my parents. It's kind of pathetic because Hasselhoff has turned into The Hoff and The Hoff is keeping Hasselhoff out of work but The Hoff's paying the bills so I welcome The Hoff.AP: There's a "Knight Rider" movie in development. What can you say about it?Hasselhoff: If you make the 'Knight Rider' movie and you don't make it retro and you don't appeal to all the people that love the show, that grew up with it. ... If you don't, it's not gonna be 'Knight Rider.' It will probably be a hit because 'Knight Rider' is a great title but it won't be 'Knight Rider.' ... It's in the hands of a company and hopefully I'll meet with them and we'll see what direction it's going in.

David said he's getting ready to go drive in the Gumball rally.David asked why he keeps taking his place on TV shows. He said he did Baywatch and then Howard did Son of the Beach. Now he's taking his spot on America's Got Talent. Howard said he's actually taking Piers Morgan's spot.Howard asked David if he walked away from that show or was he fired. David said that it was a contract negotiation thing. He said it was 4 years of arguing with Piers and it wasn't easy. He said Howard will see how hard the work is. Howard said he doesn't have to work out a script or anything and it was pretty high profile. He said he does see the huge time commitment it is though.David said the show is fun if you take your wife or girlfriend but after 4 years it wasn't fun anymore. He said he had Howard would have had a blast but with Piers it was just too much. He said he couldn't take it any more. Howard said David's persona is Mr. Nice Guy and the thing with Piers seemed pretty real. David said Piers was writing stuff behind his back and putting in the papers and denying it. He said he threatened to kill him on the air and they finally became good friends.Howard asked why he threatened to kill Piers. He said he gets that they battle a lot because you tend to defend people you like. David said that the production company will tell you to put people through at times.Howard said he saw that David wanted to butt heads with Piers. David said he changed that to ''we were butting heads.'' He said that Piers didn't like that he threatened him. David said that they had agreed that year that they weren't going to call each other out and get nasty on the show. He said Piers went for the jugular and said he was going to put people through to get at David Hasselhoff. He said Piers called him out so he called Piers out. After that they became close and got friendly.Howard asked how he gets close to a guy who betrays him and prints stories about him. David said you have to sit next to them through 80 acts. Howard asked if he would hold it against him to this day. David said they had it out on Piers' show and Piers apologized. Howard said he could never forgive that. David said Howard did that to him and he called him off the air and Howard apologized to him for it off the air. Howard said he doesn't recall that. Gary said he thinks he made that whole thing up. David said he did do that. He said that Howard wanted him to be on Son of the Beach or something and he talked to him about it and then Howard got on the air and said something that he said in confidence.David asked when the show starts. Howard said it's started already and he has to be watching. David said he doesn't watch the show. Howard said he happens to love the show. David said he loves the show too. He was on Britain's Got Talent and he did a year of that. He said he only signed on to do one year.Howard said he heard a story about David at AGT. He said he heard the producers got mad at him because he went out and got spray tanned during a break and the producers freaked out. He said that his spray tan caused a bunch of commotion. David said that is not true. He said that's something that Piers Morgan ran with that story. He said he didn't come back orange. He said he did get the spray tan at lunch but no one said anything about it. Piers was the one who ran with the story and made a big deal out of it.David said he and Piers are good friends now. He said he does things over in London and he hangs out with Piers' kids over there. He said he's been a real stand up guy with him. David said he was always very kind to his kids so that's how he judges someone.David's dog was barking so Howard asked if he has a lot of pets. David said he has 7 dogs and a pig. Howard asked if he's worth more than $10 million. David said it's more. Howard asked if he owns Baywatch. David said he owns part of that. He said they brought the show back because of the success of the song he did. He tried to bring Knight Rider back but NBC took that away from him. Howard asked if he's trying to bring out a movie based on Baywatch. David said that the people at Imagine own Baywatch the movie. He said he has no idea where they're going with it. He said he is in the middle of a Knight Rider thing with the Weinsteins. He said he lost the rights to the show though. He said he's in a new Piranha movie that's coming out on the 29th. David said that it's Piranha 3DD.Howard asked if he needs one serious part to prove that he's a serious actor. David said he's had those parts. He said that he was Nick Fury.

He said that he has to fly out in about an hour.Howard asked David about his wife. David said his first wife married a guy named Michael Knight which was very weird to him. He said now she drives around in a Knight Rider car.David told Howard about how he got custody of his kids. Howard asked how that happened and how that tape of him being drunk on the floor with a hamburger got in the hands of the public. David said it wasn't his daughter who released it. Howard asked if it was Piers Morgan. David said that he should ask a few more questions. David said that it could have been someone who had access to his daughter's computer. Gary said it must be the ex-wife. David said he can't say that but it could have happened that way. David said that he had to put everything he could into showing that he was a cool guy and that his wife was playing the kids. He said within 6 weeks he had full custody of his kids. David said that he asked the judge where he saw the video and he told him it was on E.T. David asked if he was really going to judge him based on a TV video tape.Howard asked David when he found out that tape was on Youtube. David said he was doing America's Got Talent and they were between shows. He said his attorneys and agent walked in and told him what they had seen. David said there was no tape and he doesn't do that. He said they insisted there was a tape. David said they told him that there was a tape of him drunk eating a hamburger. He said they told him it wasn't funny, it was bad. They told him it was going to be out the next day. David said he got calm and saw the writing on the wall. He said he knew he had to get his shit together and stop feeling sorry for himself. Howard asked if he was embarrassed to go out after that. David said he just asked if anyone knew where he could get a good cheeseburger.David said the first call he got was from Simon Cowell and he said everyone makes mistakes. He said that he defended him and so did Ozzy Osbourne. David said he just looks at life like ''shit happens.'' Howard said he'd be in a panic if that was going on in his life. Howard said it's embarrassing to see that kind of thing. Howard said people think he's crazy anyway so that's the kind of thing people would love to see.David said he lost his job on The Producers because of that tape and it was devastating to him. He said he was having a great time doing that play.David told Howard that the judge in the custody battle was great. David said that he's clean and sober now. He said he was clean and sober when that tape was made. That was just a one off thing. Howard asked David about being hospitalized a bunch of times for alcohol poisoning. David said it can be tough when you're an alcoholic. He said that life is fantastic now. He said he has a girlfriend from Wales and she looks like Farrah Fawcett. He said he's going to drive to Indianapolis this week and he's having fun.Howard asked David about the girlfriend and if he's having sex all the time. David said he has it as often as he can. He said he met her on Britain's Got Talent. Howard asked if he had someone bring her to him. David said that he walked right up to her in the audience and said ''you're the one.'' He said she wouldn't go out with him for 6 weeks because she thought he was too old for her. He said he's 59 and she's 32. Howard asked if he has a strong erection or does he use Viagra. David said he's the Hoff and he's like morning wood.Howard said he heard that he's proposed to her and she's turned him down. David said that's not true. Howard asked if he gives her everything sexually. David said they don't do anal. Howard told him to hit his erection against the phone right now. David said okay, whacked the phone and yelled in pain.Howard said he heard that they had the chance to hire Leonardo DiCaprio on Baywatch and they turned him down. David's bird was making noise so he told it to be quiet.Howard asked if the Leonardo DiCaprio story was right. David said that it was. He said that it's best that they didn't hire him because he did just fine without that. He said he would have played his son on the show if they had hired him. He said they went with Jeremy Jackson instead. Howard said that kid ended up on Celebrity Rehab.David said that he has no regrets. He said he did embarrass his daughter with that drunk tape. He said that was the sad part about the whole thing. Howard said he was a legend in the drinking community. He said he read he was clocked at a .39 blood alcohol level. David said he has broken some records. Howard said he read that David ran out of rehab in sweat pants to get a drink. David said he may have done that.Howard asked if David tried to commit suicide once. David said his life is too good and he's never done that. He said he was at a hotel and he was shaving and ended up breaking a lamp that sliced tendons in his wrist and arm. He said he got stitched up and then his ex-wife went out and said he tried to kill himself. He said he wouldn't do that. He said he has so much to live for. He said he has to go and do the Gumball rally tomorrow. He said they're shutting down Times Square tomorrow to do that.Howard asked David if his dad still calls him Michael Knight.

David said that he'd probably go for Obama again. He said Romney reminds him too much of the Bush administration and he didn't like that.Howard gave David a plug for his movie Piranha 3DD. He asked what he's up to next. David said he's doing the Gumball rally and then he's going to the premiere of the movie and doing a bunch of other things like going on a safari and going on an underwater thing. Then he's going to try and bring Knight Rider back as a movie. He's got a lot going on.Howard asked David if the Welsh chick is there. David said she's meeting him in New York. He said she's in Wales right now. Howard said he'd love to talk to her. David said he'd bring her on the show. Howard said he has to ask her about the anal thing because she must not love him if she won't give him that. David said they have a lot of fun together. Howard asked if he's ever had a gay experience. David said he has not. He asked Howard if he has. Howard said a guy did ask him to put his hand on his dick once when he was little but he knew it was wrong and took it off.Howard gave David some more plugs and talked about Piranha 3DD. David said this is the worst movie ever made. He said it's a goofy movie with topless women and things like that. Howard said it sounds like something he'd like.Howard and David talked about the John Travolta controversy that's going on right now. They talked more about the Piranha movie and David said that he gets to see himself in 3-D so that's kind of fun. He said he shot for a week on that movie.
