David Hasselhoff Previews His Vegas Show (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 4th 2011 6:45PM
David Hasselhoff has used to have a TV show, but after some trials and tribulations, he now he has a Vegas show. Lest you think it's a step backwards, the Hoff told 'Access Hollywood Live,' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that his live show is "Just one big party, Hoff style" that combines his stage performances like 'Jekyll and Hyde' and 'Chicago' with his TV shows 'Baywatch' and 'Knight Rider.'

The Hoff's goal is to give bachelorettes a show they'll never remember. When Billy and Kit joked that his audience would like to be touched by him, he said, "We're in the audience, man, most of the show ... The bachelorettes are going to get discounted at the door." The rest of us will have to pay full-price. See you there?

Ray Romano, Charisma Carpenter, Seth RogenWhile some shows have lured famous movie stars into leading roles, other shows are taking a more temporary approach this fall with big-name guest stars booked for short-term stints on the small screen.

Fall TV will host several major reunions that you definitely won't want to miss. Terry O'Quinn will head back to the island for a stint alongside former 'Lost' costar Daniel Dae Kim on 'Hawaii Five-0,' while Ray and Debra are back together (sort of) when Ray Romano stops by 'The Middle' to visit his former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' costar Patricia Heaton. And let's not forget 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters playing a married couple on an episode of 'Supernatural' this season.

Wanna know who else is heading to TV this fall? Check out some more of the biggest and best guest stars, including 'The Wire' alum Michael K. Williams (Omar!), Oscar-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson and crooner Josh Groban in AOL TV's fall guest star gallery.

Seth MacFarlane Will Be Charlie Sheen's Roast Master

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 11th 2011 12:20PM
If there's anyone with a wit sharp, dry and cutting enough to hilariously deconstruct Charlie Sheen, it's 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane. Comedy Central announced that MacFarlane will serve as Roast Master at the highly-anticipated Sheen roast set to air Mon., Sept. 19 at 10 PM ET.

MacFarlane has presided over more Comedy Central roasts than any other comedian, also serving as Roast Master to David Hasselhoff and Donald Trump. The Trump Roast pulled in roast-record ratings, and we're pretty sure the Sheen extravaganza will leave those numbers in the dust. Possibly Angel Dust.

"I'm very excited to work with Comedy Central again on the roast. Charlie is a true icon with a talent that is strong and pure and concentrated into small crystals which can be smoked or eaten," McFarlane said in a statement.

'Same Name' (Sun., 9PM ET on CBS) takes two people with the same name and switches their lives. Oh, and one of them happens to be famous. It's certainly an innovative take on a life-swapping show.

The premiere featured a couple of David Hasselhoffs swapping their worlds for four days. A simple Texas man found himself in The Hoff's mansion, while the former 'Baywatch' star found himself inside an oily circuit breaker he needed to clean. He also learned how to operate a riding mower.

With the announcement of a luxury competition, there would be no "haves" and "have-nots" for the week, which means decent sleeping accommodations and food for everyone.

In a shocking twist of logic that blew our minds away, Jordan put together the clues of a pair of opera binoculars and bars of soap to come up with David Hasselhoff as the mystery celebrity.

David Hasselhoff Talks 'Same Name,' 'Sons of Anarchy' & ... 'Grey's Anatomy'?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 22nd 2011 2:30PM

David HasselhoffWhat's in a name? Well, a lot actually, if it's the same name as an international star. CBS' new reality show 'Same Name' (premieres Sun., July 24, 9PM ET) connects some regular people with familiar monikers with the celebs they share a name with. Celebs like Kathy Griffin, Reggie Bush and Mike Tyson will all meet their nominal dopplegangers this season.

But first up: Actor, singer and all-around Hoff-tastic name-dropper David Hasselhoff gets to meet and swap lives with David Haseloff Jr, an electrical technician and landscaper from Lake Jackson, Texas. (No, they aren't spelled exactly the same way, but that's pretty damn close.)

I caught up with The Hoff this morning while he was on the set shooting something fun at the 'Big Brother' house to promote the show. He opened up about throwing his name twin to the wolves, making him join him on stage at a concert in Germany, and finding out that they're really not that different.

He also gave some more details on his 'Sons of Anarchy' guest spot this season. We know he's playing a former porn star, but he also told us what his dirty nickname is, and that he gets to torture Tom Arnold (who plays porn producer Caruso on the show), which was "a lot of fun."

So what other shows would Hasselhoff like to guest star on? Paging a certain long-running medical drama! We might've just found you a new McDreamy ...

'Baywatch' Turns 22: Where Are They Now?

by Jean Bentley, posted Apr 23rd 2011 11:00AM
David Hasselhoff, BaywatchTwenty-two years ago today, the act of running in a swimsuit was changed forever.

In 1989, NBC aired the pilot episode of 'Baywatch,' a new series chronicling the dangerous adventures of a group of hard-bodied California lifeguards. Next month marks the tenth anniversary since the end of the series, though it lives on in syndication repeats all over the world.

During the show's 12-year syndication run, 'Baywatch' perfected what will ultimately be its legacy: the number one beach-related television innovation of all time -- slow-mo running. Preferably by hot chicks, but sometimes by that prime archetype of manliness himself, David Hasselhoff.

Although 'Baywatch' had some wonderfully soapy plotlines, let's be honest -- the reason we loved the show was because of the aforementioned hot chicks and slow-mo running, not to mention Hasselhoff's chest hair. Okay, kidding on the third. (Although it was magnificent, wasn't it?)

Who's the Manliest -- Old Spice Guy or David Hasselhoff? (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Dec 17th 2010 5:55AM
Isaiah Mustafa vs. David Hasselhoff on 'Funniest Commercials'The 'Funniest Commercials of the Year: 2010' (Thu., 10PM ET on TBS) was appropriately hosted by the most (in)famous commercial star of the year -- Isaiah Mustafa, the "Old Spice guy." He's the tongue-in-cheek suave "man your man could smell like." But another manly man dropped by to challenge Mustafa's manliness. (Or was it a contest of who could be the most over-the-top?) David Hasselhoff argued, "I make fans melt." Mustafa countered, "But I make the ladies melt."

The Hoff: "I'm a TV star, a movie star and a rock star."
Mustafa: "So am I."
The Hoff: "You're not a rock star!"
Mustafa: "But I smell like a rock star."

Rock stars smell like Old Spice? Anyway, check out who won.

Angie Harmon Credits The Hoff with Her Big Break (VIDEO)

Angie Harmon discusses David Hasselhoff on 'Access Hollywood Live'Angie Harmon's first big break came from meeting David Hasselhoff on an airplane, Harmon explained on 'Access Hollywood Live' (Weekdays, Syndicated on NBC). Up to that point, her only acting experience was a Miller Lite commercial, but that would soon change, after The Hoff gave her a shot on 'Baywatch Nights.'

Hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover brushed past the big break, asking if Hasselhoff hit on Harmon, and if he had been drinking.

Harmon did not take the bait. "He was very, very lovely," she said of Hasselhoff, "and very respectful. He was wonderful to work with. I'm not kidding."

Bush and Hoover mugged it up in the background, registering their disbelief at having booked the one person in Hollywood who apparently had nothing negative to say about Hasselhoff.
