David Hasselhoff Sued For Assault And Battery

23 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

David Hasselhoff is being sued for assault and battery by the same surfer who took the actor to court for allegedly stealing the "Baywatch" (1989) series idea. Angelo Reno and his partner Peter Dixon received $200, 000 from Hasselhoff in 1996, but now Reno is filing another suit claiming the original settlement was fraudulent and caused him emotional distress. And he claims that people working for Hasselhoff came to his house and attacked him on behalf of the actor. Reno says, "They cursed me, threatened me and spat in my face. I recognised them immediately as Baywatch people. 'You got a problem with a friend of mine, ' they told me, 'and that means you got a big problem.'" Reno, who is a cancer survivor, continues, "I agreed to an unfair settlement under extreme pressure from everyone. They were all counting on me being so sick that I didn't care what I signed." »

Hasselhoff Freaked Out By House

20 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

David Hasselhoff was spooked on the eve of his Broadway, New York debut in stage version of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - because he was staying in the apartment where the musical was written. David freaked out when his maid told him Leslie Bricusse adapted the classic dual-personality story from the very bedroom he was sleeping in. He says, "I was like, `Wow, are you sure?' - and it seems not only did he write the musical here four years ago, she was his maid too." »

David Hasselhoff Disses Baywatch

5 September 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

David Hasselhoff is sad his former television show "Baywatch" (1989) is going from bad to worse since his departure - but so long as he keeps getting paid he's happy for it to run on. Hasselhoff is about to start his new career as a stage actor, staring on stage on Broadway in "Jekyll and Hyde". But although he's happy to continue taking money from the one-time top show, he's rather scathing about the quality of the new series. He says, "It was difficult to leave the show in hands that were not as capable of running it. It was an ensemble piece, the creative team split up and it's not the same show... I hope it continues because it's a nice piece of change for me every time it runs... Original Baywatch had characters and stories you cared about. People tried to convince me the only reason people watched the show was for full-busted women and action." »

Hasselhoff To Star In Stage Musical

4 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

David Hasselhoff is set to fulfil a lifelong dream - he'll debut in Broadway musical "Jekyll & Hyde" on October 17th. The "Baywatch" (1989) star says he's more than ready for a stage part and wants to prove a point. He says, "I'm finally hanging up my trunks to do what I want to do. I'm just not a replacement for Sebastian Bach or Jack Wagner. I'm doing it to also prove a point." He says he's talked with writer Frank Wildhorn about his interpretation of the role, and wants to make the role his own. He explains, "I want to do certain things to make it my own. I want to make it more interactive with the audience." Hasselhoff insists he's not doing it for the money saying, "I am doing it for my heart. I never wanted to be a star. I'll be perfectly happy in my little Broadway dressing room." He explains that aged seven, he appeared in Peter Pan "and that's when I realized what I wanted to do. It's taken me 40 years to do it." »

Baywatch Stars In Cancer Scare

8 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The BAYWATCH stars have been plagued by cancer scares resulting from extensive periods spent filming in the Malibu sunshine. Star David Hasselhoff spoke at the 10th anniversary party for the show, which is set to film its final episode at the end of this season. He explains, "We've all had a little bout of it. All of us have had stuff burned off, pre-cancerous spots. It's a very serious issue. "We did a show about a real lifeguard who grew up in Holland and came to Southern California. She died of skin cancer at 22." Skin cancer is increasing at a rate of about eight per cent a year in America, and it is estimated that one in five Americans will be struck by the disease. »

David Hasselhoff Unemployed

3 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

BAYWATCH hunk David Hasselhoff's new television project has been axed - due to lack of international investment. Hasselhoff's show DOUBLECROSS - initially titled A.K.A. PICASSO - was due to go into production later this year in Montreal, Canada. But due to much of the international financing falling through, the show has been pulled, and will not go into production at all. This blow may have influenced Baywatch's decision not to kill off Hasselhoff's character MITCH BUCHANNON in the hit show. Earlier this week Hasselhoff admitted his writing out of Baywatch wouldn't be as final as at first reported, vowing "I'll be back." »
