The good folks over at Spinner have compiled a bunch of videos of TV celebs from Joey Lawrence to Zooey Deschanel as they showcase their vocal chops. Though a number of singers have moved from music to television, this list features stars who made it big on the small screen before picking up a microphone, to varying degrees of success.
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?
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.
While AOL TV brought to you exclusively last night that 'Community' star Danny Pudi will guest star on an episode of the NBC hit's final season, TVLine is reporting that 'Chuck' is adding a few more famous faces.
David Koechner, also known as 'The Office''s Packer, will guest star as a Buy More manager named Crazy Bob during a company convention that Chuck and Sarah attend. 'The Shield' star Catherine Dent will also hit up the convention as one of Bob's close friends.
'Chuck' returns to NBC Oct. 21 in its new Friday at 8PM ET time slot.

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.
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.
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. Even with more clues, no one else was close, so she was treated to a sneak preview of 'Same Name' with three friends, hosted by The Hoff himself.
What'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 ...
The series premiere (Sun., July 24 at 9PM) sees Hoff trade lives with Texan David Hasselhoff Jr. In the preview video below, Hoff meets Hoff Jr. As if that weren't enough for you, Hoff Sr. is also there to get in on the Hoffy times.
After the hugs and introduction, celeb-Hoff whips out some autographs for the family to show off to their fellow Lake Jackson residents.
Watch the preview after the jump.
Now comes news that The Hoff is capitalizing on his well-endowed reputation by taking on a "meaty role" in an episode of the upcoming 'Sons of Anarchy' Season 4.
According to TVGuide.com he will play the part of Dondo, a well-endowed former porn star who is now making major coin by producing sleazy girl-on-girl adult films.
'Big Brother' will air three times a week starting Thu., July 7 at 9PM. Julie Chen returns as host.
Joining 'Big Brother' on CBS this summer is 'Same Name' (Sun., July 24 at 9PM), a new reality show about celebrities trading places with ordinary folks who share -- you guessed it -- the same name. The swap lasts for a week. David Hasselhoff (pictured) is featured in the premiere episode.
Neil Patrick Harris returns as host for the 65th Annual Tony Awards, live on Sun., June 12 at 8PM. Wayne Brady will host the Daytime Emmy Awards live on Sun., June 19 at 8PM.
Check out CBS's full summer schedule below.
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?)
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.
The Will Arnett/Keri Russell comedy has been plagued with bad reviews and ratings since its launch. Fox pulled the series from its schedule once before in November.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the final five episodes -- including a one-hour finale -- will not air at all this month. The network said they will air eventually, but did not indicate a date.

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.
