UPDATED!! THE HOFF IS IN!! KNIGHT RIDER Press Event Pics!! + The New Voice Of KITT Is...

Merrick here... We've been hearing indications for a while that Hasselhoff was in talks to reprise his Michael Knight role as a guest shot on the upcoming KNIGHT RIDER TV movie. The script definitely leaves open room for more appearances by characters from the original series - not only by Hasselhoff, but the original KITT (provided this backdoor pilot/sequel turns into a series). We now have final word on Hoff's involvement, via this press release from NBC.
David Hasselhoff (NBC's "America's Got Talent") -- who starred in the popular lead role as Michael Knight for four seasons during the original series -- returns as the same character in a special guest-star appearance.
We evidently received this release yesterday & somehow it went into the wrong e-mail box. Apologies for the delay. According to new KNIGHT RIDER star Justin Bruening, he's already filmed his sequences with Hasselhoff. This per a brief interview that appeared on G4's "Attack of the Show" last night. So, there you have it.


Merrick here...
NBC held a big shindig this morning, trotting out the cast & cars of its new KNIGHT RIDER television project. Our man Greynolds Park was there, and sent back some photos from the event...and a few broad notes. Greynolds says Will Arnett will be the voice of the Knight Industries Three Thousand (KITT). If you're not familiar with Arnett's work, chance are you've probably come across it at some point. CHECK OUT his IMDB listing. Seems 3 KITTs were rolled out: "the driving HERO car, the remote control car and the effects/tricked out car."


Here's a shot of the new cast:

(l-r) Deanna Russo (playing Mike Tracer's long lost love & daughter of KITT's creator), Justin Bruening (playing Mike Tracer, Michael Knight's son), Bruce Davison (playing KITT's creator) and Sydney Tamiia Poitier (Sydney's Poitier's daughter in real life).
BELOW: Bruening with KITT, and Bruening with Russo. She's hot.

Greynolds says David Hasselhoff (who, last we heard, was in talks to reprise his Michael Knight role) was not in attendance & the new cast was super cool & a lot of fun. Huge thanks to Greynold for his time, and for sending these in.
