‘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.

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.”

At the time of his audition DiCaprio was 15 and the part eventually went to nine-year-old Jeremy Jackson. But that’s not the only secret the producers had to share about the show. They also revealed that Hasselhoff didn't want Pamela Anderson to be cast either.

According to Berk, Hasselhoff thought that Anderson’s appearances in Playboy would alienate fans. "David said, 'I don't want a girl that's been in Playboy,'" Berk said. "He said, 'Children watch this show.’” Schwartz added: ”She had these enormous breasts and David thought he would be upstaged by everyone looking at her breasts. Which is what happened.” Anderson’s breasts also caused problems with her co-star Nicole Eggert, who according to the producers, had a breast augmentation to compete with Anderson.

"She felt a little bit competitive with Pam," Berk said. "She had a beautiful athletic body but didn't have big boobs at all. Maybe she was feeling a little bit of pressure. There was a holiday weekend and for a couple of days she called in sick afterward. Then she showed up back on the set having gotten a boob job.”

"I had already shot scenes with her with small breasts," Schwartz continued. "She came in and was wearing a jacket. I said, 'Nicole, you can't wear that. We already shot part of that scene before and you don't have a jacket on, remember?' She wanted to wear that jacket and I couldn't figure out why. And then finally, when she took off the jacket, she had these giant double Ds. I didn't know what to do. I had to put things in front of her and hide her for the rest of the episode."
