Angie Harmon backs David Hasselhoff's campaign to launch an updated 'Baywatch'

30 December 2012 5:24 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

New York, Dec 30: Us actress Angie Harmon believes that David Hasselhoff's 4-year campaign to bring the hit show 'Baywatch' back would result in a huge smash if it had a 'Dallas'-style makeover.

The 40-year-old actress, who starred in show's spinoff, 'Baywatch Nights,' felt that Pamela Anderson, Gena Lee Nolin and Carmen Electra should return to the sandy shores of Malibu, the New York Daily News reported.

But she thinks that the cast should be joined by a host of curvaceous twenty something beauties to appeal to a new generation of fans.

Harmon also reckons that Hasselhoff would get back into tip-top shape given. »

15 August 2012 4:23 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Former "Baywatch" actress Donna D'Errico went to Turkey to find the pieces of Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat. She came back with only cuts and bruises to her face and leg. What went wrong?

D'Errico, best known for playing Donna Marco on "Baywatch" and "Baywatch Nights," returned from Turkey on Wednesday (Aug. 15) empty-handed and injured. The actress released photos of her wound while still abroad, but she has not explained any details of what caused them. The actress said nothing about finding the ark.

When questioned by TMZ.com, D'Errico admitted to fearing for her life during the trip, although she did not elaborate on which dangers she faced.

Why would D'Errico want to risk life and limb just to climb a mountain and find a biblical boat? As she explains to TMZ, "I've just always wanted to climb Mt. Ararat and search for Noah's Ark. ... And I know, everybody »

Justin Timberlake tipped to star in Baywatch movie

26 June 2012 4:10 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Timberlake could join Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff in big screen outing for 90s show, reports suggest

Justin Timberlake is being sought to be the star of a new Baywatch movie, according to reports.

Suggestions that the former boyband singer turned actor could join Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff in a big screen outing for the 90s show appear to have emanated from a report on Twitch last week. They have now been picked up across the web, though there is no word from Timberlake on the matter.

Twitch said Timberlake would play a disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch crew. Hasselhoff and Anderson are both part of producers' plans.

Baywatch ran for 12 years until 2001, spawning spin-offs such as Baywatch Hawaii and Baywatch Nights, in which Hasselhoff joins a private-eye agency and begins investigating paranormal occurrences. A big screen iteration has been in the works for »

Snuffed Out, Too: More TV Series That Were Gone Too Soon

21 June 2012 6:55 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Last month, as the fate of ABC's Gcb hung in the balance, we were worried it would become a member of the "Gone Too Soon" club, TV shows that were snuffed out before they had a chance to flourish, or at least before we had a chance to grow tired of them.

Sadly, Gcb has gone to that big Upn in the sky, where it can run happily in the meadow with the likes of Firefly, Pushing Daisies, and Manimal.

While we mourn Gcb's loss, let's take a look at more shows that were ended too quickly. They were unappreciated at the the time, but they were either too good or too ... interesting ... not to have been offered the opportunity to flourish. Or flame out. Which is just as good.

Justin Timberlake to Star in 'Baywatch' Adaptation?

20 June 2012 11:24 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Justin Timberlake may be channeling his inner Hoff soon for a big-screen version of Baywatch. Twitch is reporting that the singer-actor is being courted by studio Paramount to play the lead in their adaptation of the Los Angeles County lifeguard TV drama. The series was a 1990's staple, featuring David Hasselhoff and his chest hair, Pamela Anderson and her oft-talked about breasts, and other hard bodies in clingy bathing suits slow-motion running a lot. Should the Social Network star accept the role, he'd be playing a "disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch crew." The show had an overhaul for Baywatch Hawaii, was turned into a spin-off with a police procedural edge for Baywatch Nights, and became a reunion movie on the small screen in...

Hasselhoff: The Night Stalker - Foywonder Salutes Baywatch Nights Season 2

1 April 2012 1:49 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"Hasselhoff: The Night Stalker" I dubbed “Baywatch Nights” when it aired its fabulously misguided second (and final) season. The “Baywatch” spin-off with lifeguard David Hasselhoff moonlighting as a Pi abruptly transformed into an “X-Files” wannabe with him battling the paranormal.

The results, as you are about to see, were pure trainwreck TV.

Believe it or not, there really was a time when “Baywatch” was the most watched television program in the entire world. Pamela Anderson’s (ahem) buoyancy transcended language barriers worldwide. The primary reason for the show’s global success was obvious to every red-blooded male except perhaps for producer/star David Hasselhoff. I once heard him in an interview try to claim it was the show’s storytelling that kept people coming back week after week and not because internet porn was still a few years away from being at everyone’s fingertips. Yeah, the storylines... That’s »

'Piranha 3Dd' Red Band Trailer: Live Blog

19 March 2012 2:35 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Perhaps it's the fact that I need to escape the onslaught of "Hunger Games" news. Perhaps it's the fact that I have a slight affinity toward the first "Piranha 3D" movie from 2010 (though, a lot of that has to do with the presence of Adam Scott). Regardless, I don't want to let the new "Piranha 3Dd" red band trailer escape into the ether without truly capturing every morsel of its greatness/awfulness before I quickly forget it even exists. In other words: Whatever! Here's my live blog of the "Piranha 3Dd" red band trailer. :02 I must admit, the actual redness of any red band trailer always freaks me out. Also: define "mature." Because that word means different things, especially if we're talking about the porn industry. :09 So far, just people having a nice time. Hey, imagine if that was the whole movie. Oh, wait, I forgot, that movie »

Don Cornelius, the creator and longtime host of TV’s Soul Train, was found dead on Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles, after apparently taking his own life. He was 75.

Police had responded to a report of a gunshot around 4 a.m. Pst, the Associated Press reports, and Cornelius was declared dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center from a self-inflicted gunshot wound an hour later.

Don was a visionary pioneer and a giant in our business,” music industry icon Quincy Jones said in a statement. “Before MTV there was Soul Train; that will be the great legacy of Don Cornelius. »
