David Hasselhoff Dresses as a Pirate, Poses With Kitt—We've Now Officially Seen Everything

15 November 2012 12:45 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you only see one photograph today, make sure it's this one of David Hasselhoff dressed as a pirate posing on the hood of a car. Not just any pirate, he's actually Captain Hook and not just any car, but Kitt. Oh yes, the Hoff is reuniting with his Knight Rider costar while across the pond dabbling in local theater, taking on the nefarious pirate part in Peter Pan at the Opera House in Manchester, England. If you just closed this tab to book a seat on an international red eye and matinee ticket, well, you wouldn't still be reading this and we wouldn't blame you. And because the more Hoff really does make for merrier everything, he's photobombing himself, sorta. Peep over his right shoulder and, »

David Hasselhoff Talks About Role in The Christmas Consultant and William Shatner in New Interview

10 November 2012 9:01 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Get out your jingle bells. David Hasselhoff is coming toward us tonight, Saturday, Nov. 10, as a very merry guy who helps clients get through the holidays in style in "The Christmas Consultant," a Lifetime movie he says he glommed onto because it's family-oriented and so is he. Hasselhoff also tells us he is in negotiations for a show that would bring him back into the reality TV realm, this time on the Travel Channel and that he plans to tour the U.S. with his one-man "An Evening With David Hasselhoff" stage show next year. The show has already been a success in Europe and the U.K, where the former "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider" star continues to have an avid following. Will his "Evening With" show fare as well back home? Followers of the Hasselhoff saga are well aware his life has been fraught with trauma, from past battles with booze to public derision. »

The 4 most ridiculous quotes from David Hasselhoff's latest interview

9 November 2012 2:10 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This story isn’t as random as it may appear. David Hasselhoff does actually have something to promote — a Lifetime Christmas movie opposite Caroline Rhea (Aunt Hilda!) that airs this Saturday — which is why the Associated Press recently interviewed him. But peg or no peg, I welcome any time The Hoff gets a chance to talk about The Hoff, because it leads to gems like these — which I’ve ranked in order of ridiculosity.

David Hasselhoff Reminisces About Christmas

9 November 2012 1:59 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

David Hasselhoff loves Christmas. And as it's his favorite time of year, it should be no surprise that Hasselhoff is starring in a Lifetime movie called "The Christmas Consultant.”

“My Christmas wish would be to have an entire week off. To spend it with my family and just curl up and watch Christmas movies when it’s showing outside,” David tells The Huffington Post. “I grew up in Chicago, and there was always snow. In Los Angeles there never was, so we would always import snow! I think it's a great time for me with my family. We always watch 'It’s A Wonderful Life’ and ‘White Christmas,’ spending it together.”

Importing snow isn’t cheap, but it’s not Christmas without it, David says.

“There is a snow-making machine that you can rent. Every Christmas, the kids would look forward to it, so I would cover the entire front yard with snow. »

The Hoff Talks 'Knight Rider' Movie, Wants To Join TV Comedy

9 November 2012 11:44 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- 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.

David Hasselhoff's $3.8 Million House For Sale: Take a Look Inside!

7 November 2012 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ever wonder where The Hoff hung his red swim trunks out to dry after a long day on Baywatch duty? Well, today is your lucky day! David Hasselhoff has just put his 8,947 square-foot Hasselhome on the market for $3.8 million and we've got the deets on the Knight Rider's digs. The sprawling Encino colonial-style estate, located in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley, is described as an "entertainer's paradise." It sits on a 1.5 acre lot, which boasts a tennis court, pool, waterfall and a grotto (wonder if the Hoff and Hef shared the same landscape designer?). The house itself doesn't disappoint, either. The foyer opens up to a gorgeous two-story living »

The Most Interesting Man on The A-team and Other Television Shows

26 September 2012 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We don't always do posts on "the most interesting man in the world", but when we do it's when we find out Jerry Goldsmith has appeared on nearly every geeky show from the 80's! He was on the Star Trek crew during the infamous "Corbomite Maneuver", and also made appearances on Macgyver, Knight Rider, Dallas, The Fugitive, Charlie's Angels and yes, even this episode of The A-Team! Watch Uncle Buckle to see the man in action, and also check it out if you've never actually watched the show...ten times more awesome than I ever expected.

"Manimal": The New Sexy Beast

20 September 2012 8:50 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sony Pictures Animation has secured rights to the 1983, 8-episode NBC TV series "Manimal", created by Glen A. Larson ("Knight Rider") and Donald R. Boyle, to develop as a CG/live-action hybrid feature film.

"...'Dr Jonathan Chase'... wealthy, young, handsome. A man with the brightest of futures. A man with the darkest of pasts. From Africa's deepest recesses, to the rarefied peaks of Tibet, heir to his father's legacy and the world's darkest mysteries. Jonathan Chase, master of the secrets that divide man from animal, animal from man... 'Manimal'..."

“Manimal” To Be Live Action/CG Hybrid Film At Sony?

18 September 2012 8:32 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

If we don’t get to see Black Panther in the Marvel Universe any time, at least we’ll have Manimal. Small solace, that.

The rights to the cult 80s TV show that lasted only 8 episodes has been picked up by Sony Pictures Animation in hopes of bringing Manimal to the big screen as a live action and CG hybrid film. In the show, Simon MacCorkindale (one of the most British names ever), played Dr. Jonathan Chase, a man with a mysterious past who could change into a black panther and other animals to fight crime. It sounds bloody brilliant. Here’s to hoping it’s on Netflix Instant (it’s not).

Glen A. Larson, the man who brought Magnum P.I., the original Battlestar Galactica, and Knight Rider to TV in the 80s, is attached to produce, so don’t worry about it being a drastic new take on the classic. »

Sony Animation Plans "Manimal" Feature

17 September 2012 9:39 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures Animation has scored the movie rights to NBC's short-lived early 80's TV series "Manimal" with plans to turn it into a combination live-action/CG animated feature says Heat Vision.

Simon MacCorkindale ("Death on the Nile") starred in the campy original as Dr. Jonathan Chase, a wealthy doctor with a mysterious past, who can shape shift into any animal he chooses in order to help the police fight crime.

Melody Anderson ("Flash Gordon") and Michael D. Roberts ("Baretta") co-starred. Only eight episodes aired before the critically slammed show was cancelled, though it has since developed a cult following.

Glen A. Larson ("Magnum P.I.," "Knight Rider," "Battlestar Galactica") created the original show and will serve as producer on the film for which writers are currently being sought. The move follows Sony's announcement last month of a similar live-action/CG feature based on 80's sitcom "Alf". »

Hollywood wants to make a Manimal movie

17 September 2012 7:49 PM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

This may be a sign that the apocalypse is upon us.

Sony Pictures Animation wants to mine the long-since forgotten vaults of NBC television for a possible new feature film based on the camp show Manimal.

If your memories of the show have been overwritten by better ones (or you weren't even alive at the time), Manimal was an hour-long series that debuted in the fall of 1983 on the peacock network. British thespian Simon MacCorkindale played a suave doctor named Jonathan Chase who had picked up the ability to shapechange into different animals. This was well before the days of morphing software technology, so Manimal relied on puppet animatronics and cutaways when Chase turned into the show's furry and feathered creatures (like a black panther.)

Manimal was created by Glen A. Larson, the same guy who made Battlestar Galactica, Magnum P.I. and Knight Rider. Unlike those latter three TV franchises, »

Sony Pictures Animation Developing Manimal Feature Film

17 September 2012 4:01 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures Animation is currently developing a big screen adaptation of the failed 1980's TV series Manimal. Not sure why they have decided to move forward with a silly project like this based on such a terrible series, but it will be a live-action CGI hybrid film. They might as well pump this money into a awesome original film idea, it's not like Manimal has a built in market.

The 1983 NBC series was created by Glen A. Larson (Magnum P.I.Knight Rider, Battlestar Galactica) and Donald R. Boyle and the story followed Dr. Jonathan Chase (William Conrad), a man with the ability to transform himself into any animal in the world, using his powers to fight for justice. He turned into a black panther in every episode. Larson will serve as an executive producer on the project.

It's a Man, It's an Animal, It's "Manimal" and It's Coming to Theaters Near You!

17 September 2012 2:31 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Remember the NBC early 80s show called "Manimal?" No? Well, don't worry, the premise is pretty simple. It's about Dr. Jonathan Chase, a rich doctor who morphs into animals in order to fight crime! Yup it was a campy show, and NBC cancelled it after just eight episodes. The series, starring Simon McCorkindale and Melody Anderson was created by Glen A. Larson, the TV producer who gave us "Magnum P.I., " "Knight Rider," and "Battlestar Galactica" among others.

Now, according to THR, Sony Pictures Animation has picked up the movie rights to "Manimal" and is developing a live action/CG Hybrid film. Sony is fast becoming the studio who gives you the live action/CG Hybrid films that you really don't care about but you'll watch anyway. Movies like "The Smurfs" last summer which grossed a head-scratching $500-million box-office take, the unavoidable sequel, and the upcoming "Alf."

Are you excited to see "Manimal? »

Manimal Movie in the Works at Sony

17 September 2012 1:50 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

For decades, the legend of Manimal has been passed down from generation to generation. A man with the brightest of futures and the darkest of pasts, he is a crime-fighting shape shifter who is able to take on the form of any animal. Dr. Jonathan Chase's adventures ran for four short months on NBC back in 1983 before the show was cancelled (prematurely, of course), but Manimal lived on in the hearts and minds of fans. Now Sony Pictures Animation is ready to give him another shot at the spotlight as they have reportedly picked up the rights to Manimal on the big screen. It is as the prophecies have foretold... but is the world truly ready for more Manimal? According to THR, Sony Pictures Animation is developing Manimal as a live action/CG hybrid film.

An Evening with David Hasselhoff Live – Edinburgh review

22 August 2012 5:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pleasance Courtyard

I've seldom seen a theatre audience leave with more bemused faces than after David Hasselhoff's opening performance at the Edinburgh Fringe. The Hoff is in town for one week only with his An Evening With ... show, in which he sings, screens his showreel, and orchestrates a chaotic onstage party for his fans – and for his ironic fans, too. It veers from bad to cheesy to generous spirited, and ends – not totally intentionally – in the most eye-popping spectacle I've seen all festival.

It doesn't start promisingly. We're treated to fully five minutes of clips, summarising Hasselhoff's life on stage, the small screen and as a globetrotting personality. Here is Simon Cowell saying what a swell guy he is – which doesn't bode well – and parroting the familiar claim that the Hoff can laugh at himself. This event's opening sequences imply that, even after years of kitsch stardom, the Baywatch »
