Hasselhoff's Baywatch Blunder With DiCaprio

LEONARDO DiCAPRIO missed out on a role in legendary TV show BAYWATCH, because series creator DAVID HASSELHOFF felt the movie icon wasn't right for the surf series.

Hasselhoff reminded DiCaprio of the blunder he made all those years ago at the GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS on Sunday night (16JAN05).

Hasselhoff says, "I have the dubious distinction of not casting Leonardo in Baywatch. He was going to be one of the young lifeguards but we didn't hire him.

"I reminded him of that (at the Golden Globes). Because of that he probably went on to become a huge movie star.

"He could have been in the SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE with me."

Meanwhile, DiCaprio confessed to Hasselhoff that he once landed a part in another TV classic, ROSEANNE, only for his part to be cut out of the show.
