David Hasselhoff Joins Dwayne Johnson's Baywatch


The Hoff is back! Announced in the wee hours of the morning, the former Baywatch star will be donning red trunks once again in the Baywatch remake featuring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The Rock took to his Instagram to make the announcement with a video that had Hasselhoff on Facetime.

Via to the Rock's Intagram post:

"I WAS BORN READY!" Pleasure to officially welcome the original #BAYWATCH gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie. #BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, "The Hoff" has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN.

"Hoff's a cool dude who's down to have fun and here's the best part.," Johnson continued. "He's been training his ass off and gotten in the best shape he's been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f*ck am I even thinking about Hoff's chest hair!?) World get ready."
