David Hasselhoff is set to make an appearance in the movie version of Baywatch.
“I was born ready!” yells the Hoff in a video call, when Dwayne Johnson asks if he’s prepared for the movie and, true to the usual lighthearted social media posts that Johnson makes, he describes the Baywatch movie as an R-rated “combination of The Avengers and Anchorman.”
He also promises/ forewarns (delete as applicable) of the Hoff getting in some slo-mo running down the beach in an homage to the original opening Baywatch credits and, indeed, plenty of shots from many episodes.
Filming for the movie has started already, with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson starring as Mitch Buchannon, alongside Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, and Hannibal Buress.
Hasselhoff acted in and also produced the show from the early 90s until the show ended in 2001.
