Hasselhoff to appear as himself in 'Baywatch' film15/07/2012 - 11:29:13
David Hasselhoff is set to play himself in the new 'Baywatch' film.
The 59-year-old actor says he won't be reprising his role as lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the big-screen version of the hit TV show and will instead appear as himself.
He said: "I've just met the guy writing the film. I'm going to play myself."
The former 'America's Got Talent' judge is the only cast member certain to star in movie but it is rumoured Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber could also appear.
Hasselhoff said: "There will be certain people in the movie for the original parts and we're trying to make it a very cool, updated version."
Pamela Anderson, who played long-running character CJ Lewis in the 90s series, is yet to be confirmed, although bosses are hoping that she will sign up.
Hasselhoff said: "I don't know. All I know is that they've had the script for four years now."
