David Michael Hasselhoff, commonly known as David Hasselhoff, is a famous American singer, film and television producer, businessman, as well as an actor. David Hasselhoff rose to prominence in the 1980s, when he played the main role of Michael Knight in Glen A. Larson’s television series called “Knight Rider”, which focused on a modern crime fighter and detective Knight, who was technically enhanced after a fatal accident. The series first aired in 1982, and became a huge hit among its audiences. The show also remained so popular years after its last season aired on screens, that it inspired several sequels, namely “Code of Vengeance”, “Knight Rider 2000” and “Knight Rider 2010”, a spin-off series called “Team Knight Rider”, a film adaptation, as well as various video games, toys, and vehicles.

It featured such actors as Jeremy Jackson, Michael Newman, Pamela Anderson Lee, Alexandra Paul and Richard Jaeckel to name a few. “Baywatch” finished its 11 season run in 2001, yet it returned to television screens in 2003 with a reunion movie called “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding”, where Hasselhoff reprised the role of Butchannon.

# Quote
1 Susan (Boyle) is responsible for bringing the world together.
2 [on his name] 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 growing up. I’m gonna keep it 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.
3 [2012, on the possibility of a remake of the Knight Rider series] If you don’t make it retro and you don’t appeal to the people that love the show, it’s not going to be Knight Rider.
4 That’s kind of a double-edged sword. My daughter lives in Atlanta and they are allowed to carry guns in their cars. It’s like the Wild West there. If there’s a gun around, I believe you are going to use it. I think it’s really dangerous to have a gun in your house, so I would never, never have a gun in my house.
5 I find it a bit sad that there is no photo of me hanging on the walls in the Berlin Museum at Checkpoint Charlie.
6 Beyond its entertainment value, Baywatch (1989) has enriched and, in many ways, helped save lives. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to continue with a project which has had such significance for so many.
7 (on the cancellation of Baywatch (1989)) The reaction was, “Been there done that. Eleven years is enough. It’s not the same show.” I wasn’t really happy with the direction the show was going.
