David Hasselhoff Will Be in the New 'Baywatch' Movie, Because Dreams Do Come True

You don't hassle the Hoff—and you sure as hell don't reboot his classic TV franchise without him.

A shirtless legend is returning to the beach next summer.

"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.. 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.. #RockAndHoff #ThereAintNoBay #WithoutTheHoff

Baywatch had always been teased as a hard-R comedy, but the "AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN detail" a new hint. Once you account for copious amounts of David Hasselhoff's on-screen chest hair, that means the ratings board can probably stomach one or two scenes of intense, uh, action before we get into NC-17 territory. Also: unlimited F-bombs!

Oh, and Dwayne: Why aren't you thinking about Hoff's chest hair? Zac Efron has been thinking about Hoff's chest hair for the past five months, since everyone knows it's statistically proven to pump up your testosterone levels. That's his secret.

Baywatch, also starring Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra DaddarioIlfenesh Hadera, and Priyanka Chopra, hits theaters in May 2017.
