David Hasselhoff - David Hasselhoff Has Ice Lolly Honour

Bosses at a food company have paid tribute to David Hasselhoff by launching a frozen sweet treat in his honour.
The former Baywatch star has been voted the smoothest person on British TV in 2011 and to celebrate, staff at Del Monte Iced Refreshment fashioned an ice lolly in his likeness.
The purple smoothie popsicle is shaped like Hasselhoff's upper body and was released to mark National Ice Cream Week in the U.K. earlier this month (Jun11).
Hasselhoff posted a link to a YouTube clip about the lolly on his Twitter.com page, adding, "Check out my Hoff iced lolly! Hoffalicious. Del Monte rocks! The new Hoffsicle ice lolly! Like me, it might take a licking but it keeps on ticking!"
Bond star Daniel Craig has previously been honoured with an ice lolly likeness by the company.

John Cleese To Star As Villain in Baywatch-but-not-Baywatch Spin-Off. What? 4276270 News

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.

More: Is David Hasselhoff’s New Show The Next ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’? 

"The B Team is an action comedy with some reality thrown in. We play ourselves, so the audience might not know what is true-to-life and what is made up for the movie. And that is exactly what we want. Were we really agents for the US government during our heyday? The CIA has used famous people as spies before,” Paul, who has developed the new film with fellow former Baywatch cast member Jaason Simmons, told the Independent.

“This movie is about taking the piss out of ourselves and going behind that one-dimensional image people have of actors they see on TV. We play ourselves so there are going to be assumptions the television show in question is the one we actually all were on. But no, it most definitely is not. It is not. Not. Shall I say that again?”

So how about plot details then: We know Cleese is playing the bad guy, in fact, he’s playing up to stereotypes, too – a "classic English villain" called Victor Van Vaught who suddenly has autonomy over a bunch of nuclear missiles from his boat on the Mediterranean sea.  

Baywatch ran for 11 seasons between 1989 and 2001, and even though everyone is calling this a Baywatch spoof or a Baywatch spin-off, you won’t see any official attachment to the franchise.

Is David Hasselhoff’s New Show The Next ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’? 4261348 News

‘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.

David HasselhoffJump 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'?

More: David Hasselhoff gets mistaken for others

Hasselhoff’s personal problems and career struggles over the last few years have been well documented. But back in the mid 80s David was riding high as the star of ‘Knight Rider’ which ran from 1982 to 1986. When the series ended and he no longer had a talking car, Hoff’s star status dipped everywhere, except in Germany, where he became a hugely popular recording artist. Hasselhoff was so popular in Germany that he actually performed a special concert there in 1989, at the semi demolished Berlin Wall. But David didn't stay away from television for long. The early 90s saw another Hoff career reassurance when ‘Baywatch’ came along. The series was so successful that at one point it became the most watch television show in the world, raking in over 1billion viewers.

But the past few years have seen Hasselhoff become a bit of a parody. He’s made appearances in film such as The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and Dodgeball where he played versions of himself which mocked his public image. He’s also been ‘roasted’ on Comedy Central and had a short lived reality series in A&E, focusing on himself and his two daughters.

In short, the post millennial David Hasselhoff is more than happy to laugh at himself if it keeps him on TV. Just look at what he said after ‘Hoff the Record’ was announced to air on a channel named Dave, “When I made Baywatch I dreamed of one day having my own show on a channel named after me,” Hasselhoff said. “Hoff The Record is coming soon to the UK, only on Dave. They did name the channel after me, right…?”

David HasselhoffIs Hasselhoff the next Larry David?

We can’t say we really expect ‘Hoff the Record’ to have the sophistication of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, but it might just trump it in awkwardness. Still we have no doubt that a spoof reality show starring David Hasselhoff could become our next guilty viewing pleasure. Just imagine the inevitable episode where he travels to Germany, seriously we can’t wait.

Is David Hasselhoff The New Larry David? Probably Not, But He's Going to Try 4261143 News

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 HasselhoffDavid 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.

"When I made Baywatch I dreamed of one day having my own show on a channel named after me," Hasselhoff said in a statement. "Hoff the Record is coming soon to the UK, only on Dave. They did name the channel after me, right?"

Executive Producer Krishnendu Majumdar of Me & You Productions added: "We grew up watching David Hasselhoff on TV so we are thrilled to be working with such a legend and are amazed that he is game to play a jaw dropping version of himself for us. This is our first series for Dave and it's great to be on such a supportive broadcaster making an ambitious cutting edge comedy series."

Nicole Eggert's Baywatch Run Wasn't As Smooth As It Looked On TV 3900959 News

Nicole Eggert’s Baywatch career is long over, so it’s only natural that the actress and her co-stars would want to dish on some behind-the-scenes secrets now, such as the highly restrictive weight clause in their contracts. You’d expect a show, known mostly for its extremely athletic cast and skimpy red swimsuits to have some sort of rules on appearance, but it’s still a surprise to learn just how harsh those rules were.

Nicole Eggert, Splash Practice
Nicole Eggert has managed to stay in shape even after Baywatch, as she demonstrated on Splash earlier this year.

Eggert, along with Tracy Bingham, a castmember between 1996 and 1998, both confirmed that any weight fluctuations beyond five pounds up or down, could get them booted off the show. The two were joined by former castmembers David Hasselhoff, Parker Stevenson, Brande Roderick and David Chokachi on ABC's Good Morning America, and all had some curious details to share.

"If you did anything to gain or lose weight, etc., you were in trouble,” Bingham explained.

Tracy Bingham, Night of 100 Stars
Bingham also testified to the show's restrictive policies.

While that sounds harsh and extremely restricting, the excuse can be made that this was a show that thrived mainly on the actors’ bodies. Some other goings-on from the Baywatch set, however, sound even more frustrating.

“When I auditioned for the show, I was asked to try on a suit and it was Pamela’s,” Bingham said, referring to the show’s headliner, Pamela Anderson, who did not attend the reunion. “I didn’t think it would fit, but it did. So, yeah, it was pretty awkward from the beginning.”

In fact, it was those iconic red swimsuits that were the root cause of a lot of discomfort for the Baywatch stars.

“We had plenty of moments where [the suit] didn’t really stay on,” Eggert said. “Especially the top too because it had a really low back so one little slip and the shoulder came off [and] you know what happens when the shoulder comes off.”

It wasn't made clear whether the male co-stars were subject to the same clause.

Hayley Roberts is ready to commit to David Hasselhoff 3775678 News

Hayley Roberts would get engaged to David Hasselhoff if ''he really meant it''.

David has proposed ''five or six times'' and Hayley has always turned down his hand in marriage but now she feels ready to commit after dating him since 2011.

She said: ''If he really meant it, I probably would say yes. I'd get engaged as a sign that we're committed to each other, but I don't want to rush into marriage.

''We've got plenty of time, so if he does ask, I think we'd be engaged for a few years before we actually married.''

David is just as anxious to make sure the proposal happens at the right time but is waiting for them to take a break from their hectic schedules before he pops the question.

In a joint interview with the new UK issue of HELLO! magazine: ''I think the proposal will happen when we have a minute to take a breath. We've been going at 90 miles an hour since we met. When I proposed before, we were just having fun with the romance of it all and having a laugh with the fans on Twitter.''

David - whose first marriage to Catherine Hickland ended in 1984 after five years together, and he then married Pamela Bach who he had two daughters, Taylor, 23, and Hayley, 20, with before he filed for divorce from her in 2006 - surprised Hayley with a trip to Bali to celebrate their two-year anniversary and is ''really happy'' with the gorgeous blonde.

David, 61, added: ''Two years ago I just picked her up in a hotel bar and wanted to take her to a movie. We're very happy together and she's really good for me.''

David Hasselfhoff $2 Million Pad Half The Price Of Old One 3686084 News

Is David Hasselhoff retiring? His actions recently certainly bear the hallmarks of someone heading off towards the land of bingo halls, church fates and weekly trips to the hospital. As with many who retire, Hasselhoff seems to be downsizing his life somewhat. Following his decision to sell his luscious house in Encino for a cool $3.795 million, the Hoff has made a move on a cheaper property, a home in Calabasas for a significantly cheaper $1.95 million.

So what gives, Hoff? Perhaps he’s just playing the housing market like a shrewd dealer, but we reckon that – aged 60 – the dude’s looking to wind things down a little, and who can blame him. He did a lot of running about as part of Baywatch, the fella probably took a few years off his life just doing that. Sources have told TMZ that the actor and multi-million selling musician (mainly in Germany) purchased the 5,767-sq.-ft. Mediterranean home in Calabasas last week.

Its vital statistics include a 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom house sits in a small gated community. It’s even got its own basketball court, so it’s not exactly like he’s roughing it in his old age. We’d be surprised to see him out shooting hoops on a regular basis, though saying that he has kept himself trim all these years, maybe that’s the secret.

Fighting The Good Fight: David Hasselhoff Campaigns To Save Berlin Wall's East Side Gallery 3563657 News

Back in 1989, David Hasselhoff celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall – that had separated citizens in West and East Germany for so long – by standing atop one of the remaining sections and singing his song ‘Looking For Freedom.’ Now, in 2013, that same celebrity has returned to the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining stretch of the wall in Berlin and joined a campaign to save what remains of the wall.

The East Side gallery – a section of the wall, adorned with various original works of art - is intended as a monument to the history of the city and indeed the country but The Guardian reports that efforts are being made to remove the wall, in order to build luxury apartments, close to the trendy Kreuzberg area of the city. Activists are concerned that the developers Living Bauhaus will send their construction workers back to the area this week. David Hasselhoff appeared at a demonstration at the East Side Gallery to protest the developments and has vowed to help where he can, to reserve the wall as an historical monument.

“This last piece of the wall is really sacred, it's the last memorial to the people who died and to the perseverance of freedom,” said Hasselhoff. “I don't think I can afford to buy the land," Hasselhoff explained to The Guardian. "But we could raise the money – maybe we will.” It remains to be seen whether his star status will enable activists to halt the demolition of the wall and uphold the preservation of the monument.

Razzies Nominations: So, Who Made The Worst Movie Of The Year? 3440112 News

It's that time of year again! The nominations for this year's Razzies have been announced, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - which made a ridiculous $814 million at the box office - leading the way with 11 nominations, including Worst Film and Worst Sequel. A spoof of the Academy Awards, this year's Razzies' picks arrived just one day before Thursday's Oscar nominations. So which directors, actors and actresses will have let out a giant, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" when catching wind of the infamous nominations today? And perhaps more importantly, who should win (or lose). Which movies and performances really were the worst of the worst? Here goes.

A Thousand Words Poster

Worst Picture

Ah, the ultimate Razzies gong. Battleship, The Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure, That's My Boy, A Thousand Words and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II will battle it out for the worst movie of the year. What a depressing list, though made rather more exciting this year by the inclusion of a film likely to be considered one of the worst OF ALL TIME. It is of course A Thousand Words, starring everyone's favourite movie dud, Eddie Murphy. Whoever financed this movie deserves to be flogged, or at least locked in a room with the lead character - the wholly unlikable literary agent Jack McCall, who learns a valuable lesson after finding a Bodhi tree on his property. And that's it. That's the movie. The whole sorry affair resulted in a rather low score of ABSOLUTE ZERO on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregating website. In case you're still trying to figure that one out, it means A Thousand Words has absolutely no redeeming features. Nobody who reviewed the film found anything good in it. To put the score into context, last year's Razzies winner - the disgraceful Jack and Jill - holds an impressive 3%. Anybody who saw that film probably now has a clear idea of how bad A Thousand Words is.

That's My Boy

Worst Director

Worst Director gongs can be a real killer blow, especially if the film in question doesn't win the top award. It means you've done such a bad job of directing a script that you deserve an award for it. You're going to form part of a press release, telling the world's media of your disastrous couple of weeks behind the camera. Hell, you probably had half-decent material to work with, but you made it a real mess of it didn't you? Up for the award this year, it's Peter Berg for the atrocious Battleship, Bill Condon for the even worse The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II, Tyler Perry for the forgettable Good Deeds and Madea's Witness Protection, John Putch for the ridiculously titled Atlas Shrugged Part II and the man who surely should win: Sean Anders for the unspeakable That's My Boy. Another horrendous comedy from somewhere near the back of Adam Sandler's book of movie ideas. We don't really blame for Anders for his direction as such, we just blame him for saying yes in the first place. Ok, so his track record is pretty dismal anyway, but That's My Boy, really? The film followed Sandler's character Donny who fathered a son played by Andy Samberg and raised him as a single parent up until his 18th birthday. Adam Ross of The Aristocrat kind of summed the whole thing up in his review. "I waited until 'tight Tuesdaday' to see it. It was the worst $11.50 I've ever spent. I've bought $11.50 mocktails that gave me more of a buzz than this piece of sh*t," he said.

Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: Retribution

Worst Actress

We bet Katherine Heigl never expected to find herself in the good old Razzies list when she bought the rights to the One For The Money books. Her turn in the first of the crime-comedy movies was fairly unremarkable, though we'd be surprised should she win the award. Kristen Stewart, Barbra Streisand and Tyler Perry also feature in the nominations, and although we were close to highlighting the Twilight actress, we can't look beyond the horrible performance that Milla Jovovich turned in for Resident Evil: Retribution. Firstly, who thought this movie was a good idea? Secondly, did anyone watch it? It's like that old tree falling in a forest question: If Milla Jovovich made another Resident Evil movie but nobody was there to watch it, did it really ever happen? We hope not.

Eddie Murphy In A Thousand Words

Worst Actor

Was anyone as bad as Jovovich on the male side of Hollywood? Well, yes, incidentally. Nicolas Cage was unimpressive in Ghost Rider 2: Spirit Of Vengeance, though we're still of the opinion that the Oscar winner has a decent role in him yet. Robert Pattinson has scored a nomination for Twilight, as has Tyler Perry for Alex Cross and Adam Sandler for That's My Boy. If you've bothered reading this far, you'll know there's only man who can win this one. Eddie Murphy, for A Thousand Words. An all-round dud of a performance that must have the guys financing the Beverly Hills Cop television series reaching for the shotguns.

Jennifer Lopez - What To Expect When You're Expecting

Worst Supporting Actress

And now for the supporting roles. Which actors and actresses provided god-awful stability for their lead co-stars to go on and give equally bad performances? Jessica Biel is nominated for Playing For Keeps AND Total Recall, while model Brooklyn Decker also gets two nods for Battleship and What To Expect When You're Expecting. Ashley Greene is also thrown on top of the Twilight bonfire, while Jennifer Lopez gets the thumbs down for What To Expect. Rihanna rounds things out for her turn in Battleship. Jeez, imagine having Brooklyn Decker and Rihanna as your supporting actresses. Massive question marks considering they're not actresses. But anyway, former American Idol judge Lopez gets out vote for her frankly ridiculous turn in the comedy. Urgh, Lionsgate probably half expected this steaming pile of trash to hang onto the coattails of the Sex and the City movies. But it didn't. And nobody watched it. The Guardian said, "Someday Hollywood will think of women as more than fallopian tubes in heels; until then, we're stuck with this kind of project."

David Hasselhoff Piranha 3-DD

Worst Supporting Actor

There's hardly any point in listing the nominations for this one, because David Hasselhoff wins for the brainless Piranha 3-DD. Taylor Lautner, Liam Neeson, Nick Swardson and Vanilla Ice better be thanking their lucky star that The Hoff had the ability to put forward such an incompetent performance. Saying that, Liam Neeson will probably win. He was arguably worse than Rihanna.

Battleship Poster

Worst Screen Ensemble

Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, Taylor Kitsch and a horrible performance from Liam Neeson. Yes, it has to be Battleship to win Worst Screen Ensemble. As mentioned, two of the main cast aren't even actresses, while it's debatable that Kitsch is even an actor (John Carter, anyone?) They were probably praying Neeson could hold it all together, but he couldn't. Others in with a shout of the award are the cast of The Oogieloves In Big Balloon Adventure, That's My Boy, Twilight and Madea's Witness Protection.

A Thousand Words Poster

Worst Screenplay

Which unlucky scribe will bag this year's prize? Who really dropped their directors, producers, actor and actresses in the deep end with pages and pages of typed up diarrhoea? Well, all the usual suspects are in there, (Battleship, That's My Boy, etc) but we can't get away from A Thousand Words, which was just a bad idea from start to finish. It's the handy work of Click writer Steve Koren. Shame on you, Steve Koren.

Ghost Rider 2 Poster

Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel

Last year, this award went to Sandler's Jack and Jill (remake of Glen or Glenda), though the comedian finds himself out of the running this year. He's probably learnt his lesson with sequels. Anyway, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II will probably take the prize, though we're plumping for Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance. The first movie was one of the worst reviewed flicks of 2007, which begs the question, who commissioned a sequel. And why?

Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler in That's My Boy

Worst Screen Couple

Looks as though the Razzies organizers are having a little fun with this one, nominating, "Any two cast members from Jersey Shore in The Three Stooges." It's a fair point. And they'll probably win, though Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner are as wooden as old floorboards in the vampire drama, while the less said about Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg in That's My Boy, the better. 

The 33rd Razzies ceremony will be held on February 23, 2013.

It's that time of year again! The nominations for this year's Razzies have been announced, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - which made a ridiculous $814 million at the box office - leading the way with 11 nominations, including Worst Film and Worst Sequel. A spoof of the Academy Awards, this year's Razzies' picks arrived just one day before Thursday's Oscar nominations. So which directors, actors and actresses will have let out a giant, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" when catching wind of the infamous nominations today? And perhaps more importantly, who should win (or lose). Which movies and performances really were the worst of the worst? Here goes.

A Thousand Words Poster

Worst Picture

Ah, the ultimate Razzies gong. Battleship, The Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure, That's My Boy, A Thousand Words and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II will battle it out for the worst movie of the year. What a depressing list, though made rather more exciting this year by the inclusion of a film likely to be considered one of the worst OF ALL TIME. It is of course A Thousand Words, starring everyone's favourite movie dud, Eddie Murphy. Whoever financed this movie deserves to be flogged, or at least locked in a room with the lead character - the wholly unlikable literary agent Jack McCall, who learns a valuable lesson after finding a Bodhi tree on his property. And that's it. That's the movie. The whole sorry affair resulted in a rather low score of ABSOLUTE ZERO on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregating website.

Wedding Bells For The Hoff? Hayley Roberts Ready To Say Yes To David Hasselhoff 3300533 News

David Hasselhoff’s Welsh girlfriend Hayley Roberts has revealed that she’s ready to accept a marriage proposal. The Hoff has already proposed to 32 year-old Hayley three times, in different locations but so far she has always turned him down. However, she told The Mirror that she reckons she’s ready now: “If and when he asks again, I’ll say yes,” she told the British newspaper. Perhaps she still hasn’t seen that David Hasselhoff cheeseburger video?

“I don’t think he’ll do the traditional thing and get my dad’s blessing first but that doesn’t bother me. Hardly anyone does that any more,” said Hayley. “We’ve been together for over 18 months now so I think I’m ready.” Tradition clearly isn’t high on Hasselhoff’s list of priorities. He and Hayley have been scouring the Cotswolds for a new home and now that they have found one in a village called Broadway, he has already declared that he intends to rename it Hoffway. “I’m hoping the locals take to us,” he said, though we’re not sure that changing the name of their village is such a great way to ingratiate yourselves with the locals. “I love your country and almost feel like an honorary Brit now,” said the Hoff, though he admits that Hayley’s Welsh homeland is nothing like anything he has ever known before.

The interview took place after he took part in the Virgin London Triathlon, in a celebrity team with Alexandra Burke and a journalist from The Mirror. He opted to do the 20km cycle ride, explaining that- somewhat ironically - his Baywatch years had given him a fear of open water. “It stems from too many takes in the freezing, choppy ocean during my Baywatch days,” he explained.
