David Hasselhoff is convinced he has special healing powers after a motivational message he recorded for a sick young boy helped the youngster come out of a coma.

The Baywatch star is adamant he has saved thousands of lives through positive thinking and recalls one time he spoke in the voice of his Knight Rider character Michael Knight in a bid to help an ill child.

He tells Britain's BBC Radio Five Live, "The upside of being in showbiz is being able to hold the hand of a kid who is dying, you know. I did a tape for a kid saying, 'Hey buddy, it's Michael Knight, Michael Knight, come on,...

David Hasselhoff is grateful his daughters convinced him to accept a role in The Spongebob Squarepants Movie because the cameo introduced him to a younger fan base.

The Baywatch star's girls Taylor-Ann and Hayley urged their famous dad to appear as himself in the 2004 animated film, and Hasselhoff admits the project gained him new fans.

He tells Britain's OK! TV, "I got an offer to do a cameo in the SpongeBob movie and I turned to my girls, who were like 16 and 14, and I said, 'Who's SpongeBob?' and they said, 'Oh my God, Dad, it's the number one cartoon in the world, you gotta do it.' ...

David Hasselhoff Loved Being Roasted

August 2nd, 2010 11:29pm EDT
David Hasselhoff
David Hasselhoff jumped at the chance to be honored as the special guest at the latest Comedy Central Roast in Los Angeles - because he's always the first to poke fun at himself.

The former "Baywatch" star became the butt of harsh jokes at Sunday's event, which was attended by his former TV co-stars Pamela Anderson, Gena Lee Nolin and Jeremy Jackson.

He even parodied his image in an ad for the show, in which he donned his famous red beachwear and washed a car similar to his old "Knight Rider" TV model.

But, in an interview with ETonline.com shortly before the roast, Hasselhoff insisted n...

5 TV Shows That (Maybe?) Should Be Made Into Movies

5 TV Shows That (Maybe?) Should Be Made Into Movies
Turning classic TV shows into big screen movies seems to be the current forte in Hollywood. Sometimes they work (The Brady Bunch Movie, Mission: Impossible, Charlie’s Angels). Oftentimes they don’t (Bewitched, The Dukes of Hazzard, I Spy, The Honeymooners). In honor of yet another classic TV show being made into a movie (The A Team hits theaters this Friday, June 11), here are five classic TV shows that should have their own big screen adaptations – with all new casts, of course – sometime in the near future. Maybe.

Happy Days: Although set in 1950s and 1960s America, this classic sitcom r...

Rockford Files
NBC is planning a new series of The Rockford Files, based on the '70s P.I. show starring James Garner. This won't be just your average remake though. David Shore, creator of TV's House, is developing the new Rockford.

"It's just that great character and there isn't that PI character on television right now," said NBC and Universal Media Studios president of primetime entertainment Angela Bromstad at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. "So if we do a creative reinvention of that, with that title, and I don't think there's anyone better to do it than David Shore who creat...

The Dark Knight
Objects are often the most important thing on a television show or in a film. They represent a character's personality or serve as a key symbol for a scene or episode. But most of all, they are highly desirable items that audiences and fans want, but probably can't have in real life. Whether it's Dark Knight's Batpod motorcycle or a sexy dress worn by Eva Longoria's character on Desperate Housewives, we would love to get our hands on these items. They would make great collectibles and Christmas presents. Here are some notable TV and movie objects that would make great Christmas presents:

Can Val Kilmer Make A Comeback In Hollywood?

November 18th, 2009 11:09am EST
Val Kilmer
Val Kilmer makes a triumphant return to the big screen this week in "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," an off-kilter project befitting Kilmer's reputation as one of Hollywood's biggest head cases.

Will this film - Kilmer's first to get a wide release since 2006's "Déjà Vu" - get the actor back on the Hollywood map or will he continue to toil away in B-movie wilderness for the rest of his career?

Remember, Kilmer may be king of the straight-to-DVD landscape now, but for a while was considered to be one of the leading men in Hollywood. Kilmer was Iceman for crying out loud! H...

'Community' Recap:'Home Economics'

Community
After a nearly perfect Halloween episode, this week's Community feels like a bit of a let down. Jeff appears topless right away, revealing himself to be living out of his car. Again, this show continues to mime the various aspects of the community college experience, this time the compromises one makes with his pride. Jeff still wants to be a superficial lawyer with a lavish condo and a Lexus, but in order to become a real person, someone Britta would date, he'll have to set his sights lower.

He moves into Abed's dorm (yes, some larger community colleges have dorms), where he learns the ...

You've got to hand it to NBC. The once mighty network has been reduced to a perennial loser, regularly coming in behind the rest of the Big Four in every conceivable metric. So instead of trying in vain to come from behind in a game being dominated by CBS and Fox, NBC co-chairman Ben Silverman and company are taking a different approach. They are changing the way the game is played.

Already breaking from convention (by unveiling their new schedule six weeks before the traditional upfront presentations), the hardworking folks at NBC proved that they sincerely meant it when they said ...

Noah Wyle
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Noah Wyle, best known as Dr. John Carter on NBC's ''ER,'' says he enjoys playing bookworm-turned-superhero in ''The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice.''

''After having played serious drama for so long, I needed to scratch the itch of versatility,'' Wyle said this week during a break from filming.

Set in New Orleans, it's the third installment of TNT's series of films in which Wyle portrays mild-mannered Flynn Carsen, who helps care for some of humanity's greatest treasures hidden beneath New York's vast metropolitan library.

The Top Ten TV And Movie Robots Of All Time

2008 TV Wishlist: An End To The Writers' Strike, A Proper Ending For 'Scrubs' & More

Desperate Housewives
The new year is usually a time of reflection and resolutions. Instead of reflecting on the past TV season, we make the following wishes for the coming year, some more attainable than others.

1.) An end to the writers' strike - More than anything, let's hope that 2008 brings an end to the writers' strike with a resolution that satisfies everyone's demands. Most of this season's shows are already out of new episodes, and midseason entries like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles aren't far behind (the show will run out of new episodes March 3). Lost (premiering Jan. 31) will be cut o...

Five Television Remakes We'd Like To See, But Probably Won't

January 14th, 2008 4:27pm EST
The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Ahh, the remake. The feelings that are evoked when you hear that your favorite program from yesteryear is being re-thought, re-vamped and re-launched for the new generation are hard to describe. Sure, remakes are almost inevitably likely to fail, but so what? That doesn't make their possibility any less tantalizing.

TV remakes don't happen often, although when they do they tend to come in waves. The crest of the latest remake wave seems to be ominously hovering right over our heads as recent launches of "Bionic Woman," "American Gladiators" and the soon-to-be debuting "Knight Ride...
