David Hasselhoff is known for his roles in the 1980â€™s hit seriesÂ Knight RiderÂ as well as the 1990â€™s hitÂ BaywatchÂ but â€œThe Hoffâ€ is more than a lifeguard in red swim shorts. Since he has contributed toÂ Americaâ€™s Got Talent,Â Britainâ€™s Got TalentÂ is currently working with Play Station to create his own video game. He has also teamed up with Lean Pockets as well as released his newest album,This Time Around; not to mention a series of online work which fans can contribute to! The hilarious Hoff took a moment to talk to TheCelebrityCafe.com about his current work and future work, but it wouldnâ€™t be an interview with The Hoff if there werenâ€™t a twist of sarcasm and humor mixed in.TheCelebrityCafe: Tell me about your work with Lean Pockets.David Hasselhoff: Mr. Lean came to me through, well, I donâ€™t know how he came to me. [Probably] through my manager because Iâ€™ve been doing a lot of work online - I have a big online presence with myÂ websiteÂ and myÂ Twitter. Iâ€™m getting a lot of things actually. Iâ€™ve things with Play Station where Iâ€™ve done a â€œDance Hoff.â€ I have a game coming out on iTunes for the iPhone from Play Station.I have a commercial in Norway which is an interactive commercial where you can actually co-star in the commercial. Weâ€™ve green screened everybody and you put your Facebook in there and it says that â€œDavid Hasselhoff is looking for Sarah in the mall,â€ and thereâ€™s a picture of you, and at the end we find you in your house. If your house is on satellite we actually shoot coming to your house - itâ€™s pretty wild.Iâ€™ve been doing things in Germany that actually involve my video tape. Basically my online presence is generating a lot of resources for me. We have a keen sense of recognizing the obvious and the obvious is thatÂ BaywatchÂ is still the number one syndicated show in the world and since people know me so well they respond to whatever I do.Then from there,Â Americaâ€™s Got TalentÂ toÂ Britainâ€™s Got TalentÂ and episodes ofKnight RiderÂ andÂ BaywatchÂ are still running and so, this came to me. [Lean Pockets] know I have a crazy sense of humor, and they know that I like to make fun of myself. They brought me in and said they have this German metrosexual crazy character, and they told me what it was like and it kind of (In his best German accent) â€œTalks like this! And itâ€™s up to you!...â€Heâ€™s very funny. I went and did the show and I went 2000 percent crazier than they expected and it was great. When it first came out the reviews said, â€œHas Hasselhoff gone crazy? What wonâ€™t this guy do?â€ And I thought, â€œOh my God my career is over.â€ My girlfriend came in and told me some negative report right online and the next thing that came out was 3 million hits and we went, â€œOh! I guess weâ€™re a hit!â€So now itâ€™s a hit. Itâ€™s a funny character, itâ€™s not gay, itâ€™s not making fun of anybody. Heâ€™s just a crazy character like Will Ferrell or Steve Martin would do, and I was always a fan of those guys, so it was kinda cool to do it! Besides that, the Lean Pockets are good, so itâ€™s not like youâ€™re promoting cigarettes, they really taste good!They actually sent me a bunch of them when I was makingÂ The Christmas ConsultantÂ which will be out on Lifetime next Christmas. I came home from work oneÂ freezingÂ cold night in Canada and there was Lean Pockets there and thought, â€œAh! Letâ€™s try one of these babyâ€™s out!â€ I ate about six of the cheese ones right away, theyâ€™re really good.TCC: Are those your favorite kind?DH: The three cheese are my favorite, but there is this one that has meat in it, gives you a little protein if want to work out. You know, theyâ€™re definitely munchy food.TCC: You were mentioning games that you were going to put out, what are the names of those games?DH: The game is called â€œHoff Zombie Beach.â€ Itâ€™s Hoff against the Zombieâ€™s and itâ€™s going to be awesome. Weâ€™ve been working on it for, gosh, itâ€™s going to be 8 months and we designed it ourselves. I went to Play Station and I said I donâ€™t want an advance, I donâ€™t want any money, I donâ€™t want to own this. I want to develop with you guys, I want it to be the Hoffâ€™s and all of the â€œHoffismsâ€ - like we have the watch fromÂ Knight RiderÂ - and itâ€™s all kind of little things that have happened in my life. Iâ€™m dressed as a lifeguard at the beach and all of these zombieâ€™s come out of the water. There are a lot of other things coming out as well.Iâ€™m on a thing calledÂ Trust Us With Your LifeÂ which is on ABC on July 10. Iâ€™m on the third episode and itâ€™s kind of likeÂ Whatâ€™s My LineÂ with Drew Carey and Fred Willard is the host. It has Wayne Brady and a bunch of comedians; itâ€™s really, really, funny. Right now I am trying to get back into a line of things in America but I am so busy with Europe.Each Christmas I do a panta in the U.K which is likeÂ Peter PanÂ where I play â€œHoff the Hook.â€ Itâ€™s a big sendoff; itâ€™s fun and very, very successful and it only lasts 5 weeks, but itâ€™s Christmas so I have to bring Christmas over there, which in a way is great, but itâ€™s kinda not the same. In a way itâ€™s neat because my girls come over and itâ€™s usually snowing and cold, but Iâ€™ve done a lot of concerts and I am working on my own show for Broadway called â€œHoff Broadwayâ€ and Iâ€™m trying to get back into a line of television in the states.The last two years I just really got into touring and I said, you know, thereâ€™s really nothing happening in the States right now other than reality and I didnâ€™t want to doÂ Americaâ€™s Got Talent, and I didÂ Britainâ€™s Got TalentÂ for a year. Itâ€™s fun to do it when itâ€™s live, but the rest of the time itâ€™s not. Itâ€™s a lot of travel and watching people on stage and sitting there. I kind of feel like, Iâ€™m 59 years-old, I donâ€™t want to be watching people. Iâ€™d rather be on stage doing it. Even if I donâ€™t make the same amount of money, I donâ€™t care about that. I want to do what makes me happy and thatâ€™s singing and pleasing people and adventure and surprise.I like the adrenaline. I go to South Africa after this and weâ€™ll go on a safari after our concert. So, we try to find some sort of adventure that kind of coincides with whatever we are doing.TCC: You just released an album titledÂ This Time Around, can you tell me about that?DH:This Time AroundÂ is an album that took me a few years to finish. The music of Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse who wrote â€œJekyll and Hydeâ€ and they did, â€œStop the world, I want to get offâ€ andÂ Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Their music is just phenomenal and it comes from Broadway and it comes from Frankâ€™s library andÂ This Time AroundÂ is a tribute to those who made fun of me singing because I can sing. I grew up in the theater and I trained for this and Iâ€™m very proud of the album; people who hear it, love it. Itâ€™s kind of a Josh Groban album, itâ€™s beautifully done. I was out promoting that, so when Iâ€™m in my concert tours Iâ€™m doing the Edinburgh Festival between the 20th and 27th and then I do Leicester Square in the U.K on the 17th and 18th of August.In those shows I will do half way Broadway and half these beautiful ballads then Iâ€™ll turn it into a rock n roll Hoff party. I do a tribute to Hoff, a tribute toBaywatch, a tribute toÂ Knight Rider. I sing â€œJump In My Carâ€ which was a big hit in Europe. Then, I actually do disco! They called me and I said, â€œDisco? Why would I want to do a disco for?â€ They said, â€œHow about 20,000 pounds?â€ I said, â€œIâ€™ll do a disco!â€ They all dress up as me and when they play theÂ Baywatchtheme they all take off their tops! I said, â€œLetâ€™s just do discoâ€™s for the rest of our lives.â€ Itâ€™s crazy, guys are ripping off their tops, girls are ripping off their tops revealing bikiniâ€™s and theyâ€™re all dressed asÂ BaywatchÂ and they stand there and scream, â€œOh we love theÂ Baywatch!â€ They kiss me, then they leave and give me money. Then I went, hmmmâ€¦ hmmmâ€¦ this is fun! So we do a few of those a year, and now weâ€™re starting to do a university tour.Universities are coming after me to do a homecoming because I sing at the homecoming game and its entertainment for the parents and the kids. Itâ€™s kind of a funny place in my life right now so if a TV series comes along I would probably do that, but nothing has really come along that I really like. I didÂ Sons of AnarchyÂ but theyâ€™ve kind of run their course and been around the block, so Iâ€™m looking for something new and weâ€™ll see what happens.TCC: You also make an appearance inÂ Keith Lemon: The FilmÂ where you star as â€œThe Hoffâ€ what is like playing your infamous nickname?DH: Well Keith Lemon is a good friend and one time I did his show and I didCelebrity JuiceÂ about five times. So, Iâ€™ve been on Keith Lemon about twenty times now and I always say Iâ€™d like to do my own show and call it â€œHoff an Hourâ€ so he wrote â€œHoff an Hourâ€ in his show and Iâ€™m a host like David Letterman. Iâ€™m interviewing Kelly Brooke and sheâ€™s telling me about her new calendar and I get turned on - on stage and I get very embarrassed that I canâ€™t get out of my seat. Then Keith Lemon comes on with the Keith Lemon phone and itâ€™s a really funny cute movie and heâ€™s a first class guy, I love working with him and I think the movie is going to be crazy. Same reason I didÂ Piranha 3 DDÂ , itâ€™s probably the worst movie ever made, but thatâ€™s why itâ€™s so good itâ€™s so frickin' funny, itâ€™s so stupid itâ€™s so funny, everybody gets eaten and beheaded. I wonâ€™t make any rescues because Iâ€™m not really a lifeguard Iâ€™m David Hasselhoff. Itâ€™s really funny! We went and saw it in 3D and we laughed, of course there were only 5 people in the audience but we laughed with our audience.TCC: You haveÂ The Christmas Consultant,Â Keith Lemon: The FilmÂ , the video games, the commercials and not to mention your album- where will fans see you next?DH: You know, I donâ€™t knowâ€¦ Iâ€™m working on an online series called â€œBum Baywatch.â€TCC: Based off of theÂ BaywatchÂ series?DH: Based off of David Hasselhoff going to Bum Bay to make a Bollywood movie! You can see what happens to me when I go thereâ€¦just put a camera on my head and you would not believe the kind of stuff that happens to me. Itâ€™s just crazy. Hereâ€™s a series: Hide a camera in my head, follow me with a camera, two guys with other cameraâ€™s and letâ€™s watch what happens! I can shut down Time Square in 28 seconds, just by going out and handing out autographed pictures. Iâ€™m just saying, I go to Zimbabwe in the jungle and every time someone sees me or delivers me room service they say, â€œKnight Rider!â€ Or another guy goes, â€œKnight Rider, when did you get so old?â€ [laughing] And thatâ€™s in Zimbabwe! I mean,Â Knight Rider, so I got down on my knee and proposed to my girl and I was doing that as a gag on Twitter and it says, â€œKnight Rider proposes to girlfriendâ€ in Victoria Falls. They didnâ€™t even say my name; they called me â€œKnight Riderâ€ the whole interview.You know itâ€™s funny and endearing, and itâ€™s wonderful itâ€™s a positive thing. When I see people on the street, even the homeless people, â€œHey Knight Rider, how you doing?â€ TheyÂ allÂ knowÂ Knight Rider.
