DiCaprio was the first choice to play Hobie Buchannon, but Hasselhoff thought the actor was too old.
‘Baywatch’ producers Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz have revealed that Oscar winner Leonardo Dicaprio was nearly cast in the show as David Hasselhoff’s son. DiCaprio’s career path might have looked very different if he had landed the role of Hobie Buchannon, but perhaps fatefully for him, David Hasselhoff nixed the idea.
Leonardo DiCaprio was nearly cast in ‘Baywatch’.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Berk said: "We actually had DiCaprio ready to be cast. But David thought he was too old to play his son.” Schwartz added: "David thought it would make him look older. He had a lot of concerns of that type.”
David Hasselhoff - David Hasselhoff along with Gumball founder Maximillion Cooper, partner Eve and Gareth Wood were just a few of the celebrities taking part in rally which arrived in Edinburgh this evening (01May16) at Edinburgh Regent Street - Edinburgh, United Kingdom - Sunday 1st May 2016
She'll be joining original cast member David Hasselhoff, as well as Baywatch' newcomers Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Kelly Rohrbach.
Pamela Anderson has reportedly joined the cast of the Baywatch movie re-make, heading back to where it all began for her, despite recently claiming she wasn’t interested in TV remakes.
The movie’s primary star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shared an Instagram picture of himself posing with the iconic model, whose career took off with the hugely popular beachside drama series in the late ‘80s.
“We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!,” the actor wrote in the caption. 48 year old Anderson is therefore the second actor from the original series to sign on to appear in some capacity in the forthcoming movie re-make, set for release on May 19th, 2017.

The movie is slated for a May 2017 release, but Hasselhoff won't be reprising his role as Mitch Buchannon.
Johnson will reportedly be playing the role of Mitch Buchannon, the part occupied by the Hoff in the original TV series which ran from 1989 to 2000 – meaning that it’s as yet unclear what role Hasselhoff will be playing in this new movie reboot.
Announcing the news in an Instagram video on Thursday (March 3rd), Johnson was seen chatting via FaceTime with his future co-star Hasselhoff, asking the 63 year old actor “I don't know if the world is ready for both of us. Are you ready?”

But don't worry; it's just for a commercial.
'Baywatch' star and general TV legend David Hasselhoff has decided to change his name to ease the hassle of his life, and becomes just plain David Hoff - undoubtedly an homage to his endearing nickname 'The Hoff'. Now he just sounds like a cigar brand (Davidoff - geddit?).
David Hasselhoff drops the 'Hassel'
The cheesy 80s actor (and we say that with great affection) who appeared in 'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!' earlier this year opted for the name change as part of an Australian ad campaign - more on the subject will be revealed later - but he sure had us convinced that it was all for real with his video announcement.

It's obviously a huge joke, but that's why everyone loves it.
No one expected the original Sharknado to be much more than a laugh, but its sequel Sharknado 2: The Second One was an even bigger hit. Now Syfy has released Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No, and there's also news that star Ian Ziering will be back for a fourth romp next year.
'Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No' comin' atcha!
The actor, who rose to fame in the 1990s in Beverly Hills 90210, knows that these films are a joke. "It's over the top, but it's over the top in a great way, and I've stopped questioning it," he says. "These movies are not intended for overthinkers, but they've really captured the imagination of sci-fi fans. Sharknado 2 generated such a shockwave that it reverberated over a billion Twitter impressions around the world. It was all top 10 trending topics on Twitter at the same time! Nowhere in any parallel universe did I ever think that would happen in my career."

The 'Knight Rider' star returns to what he does best.
In recent years, 80s action hero David Hasselhoff has been well known to get involved with a variety of quirky, independent projects - but his latest music video, 'True Survivor', may just be his most unique - not to mention most eccentric - yet.
David Hasselhoff stars in short film 'Kung Fury'
The Hoff returns to his homeland of early computer graphics, cheesy storylines and epic action stories with a new 80s-inspired short film called 'Kung Fury'. Filmed in Sweden by talented up-and-coming animator David Sandberg, it features a new song from Hasselhoff, 'True Survivor' composed by Mitch Murder, alongside an epic music video.
The third instalment in the 'Sharknado' franchise will feature a star packed guest cast.
SyFy has just announced a title and premiere date for the third instalment in the Sharknado franchise, which will be terrorising our screens again this summer. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No will be coming at us via the cable network on July 22nd, as this time disaster hits Washington D.C. in the two hour made for t.v. movie.
Once again Tara Reid will be back in her role as April while Ian Ziering will also be returning as hero of the day Fin Shepard. Cassie Scerbo, who did not return for Sharknado 2: The Second One, has also been confirmed as coming back, as Nova a bartender who sets her sights on Fin.
It's not Baywatch! It is Baywatch though.
We’ll admit to being a tad confused with this one. A new Baywatch spin-off movie has been announced; with Monty Python star John Cleese fulfilling the role of antagonist.

But even though David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Alexandra Paul - who appeared as Mitch Buchannon, CJ Parker and Stephanie Holden in the original Baywatch series – will star, the film doesn’t really have anything to do with Baywatch. They don’t have the rights. They can’t mention the word Baywatch. And they probably don’t need to.
‘Hoff the Record’ is coming to channel Dave next year
‘Baywatch’ star and Germany’s favourite recording artist, David Hasselhoff, is coming back to TV, with a new six part ‘spoof-reality’ series beginning next year. ‘Hoff the Record’ (yes that’s the real title) will be shown on comedy channel Dave in the UK, though we’re assuming the German’s will be quick snap this one up too.
Jump in my car, The Hoff is coming to channel Dave
The series sees David, sorry the Hoff, portraying a ‘fictionalised version of himself’ as he tries to rebuild his career in the UK. It will be “semi-improvised’ and David will have some as-yet-to-be-named comedy co-stars helping him along the way. Of course the obvious comparison to make is with HBO’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, starring Larry David. But does The Hoff really have what it takes to make the next 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'?

We're going to get semi-fictionalised Hoff action in 2015
David Hasselhoff will be hitting Dave with a brand new, six-part spoof reality TV show set to air in 2015. The show will feature a semi-fictionalised Hoff and has been described to be akin to Curb Your Enthusiasm in style.
David Hasselhoff's new show is set to hit Dave in 2015
There are three distinct possibilities for the Hoff’s new comedy venture: the show will be genuinely funny, garner critical praise and get a second season before the first one is out, probably on another network; or it’ll be unintentionally funny and get laughs because it’s a bit naff; or it’ll be the horrible, slow death of a cult hero. We’ve a horrible feeling the latter might be in store.
