David Hasselhoff had a ball shooting for the sequel of a recent horror-comedy film, where he played himself.

The actor who shot into fame with his TV series Knight Rider and later, Baywatch says he saw the earlier film with his dad. “My dad and I watched it — my dad’s 87 — and we both looked at each other and said, ‘Well, the movie kind of sucks but the girls are really hot!’ And it was so funny because we both picked up on the same things,” he laughs. David tells CS about the ups and downs of his career as well his future plans:

An amazing life
Once you realise that life isn’t fair and people aren’t fair and things aren’t going to happen the way you want them to happen, you just have to go with the flow. Keep moving forward. And you got to laugh at it. My God, my life is amazing. I’m 59-years-old. I just did a video for ‘Train’ and for some reason I still have this amazing amount of following. I don’t know why. I just go with the flow.

Clean and easy
I eat sushi. I think that without sushi there would be no David Hasselhoff, because sushi is like the perfect way of describing the insights of David Hasselhoff. He is like a protein, clean and easy. That’s how I feel about myself. I feel I’m protein, I’m clean, and I’m very easy to eat.

I really, honest to God, have no idea what’s going to happen tomorrow. I’m just going to do what God tells me to do. I mean that. Right now I’m trying to concentrate on bringing Knight Rider back in a correct way. I’m looking at the Baywatch episodes right now in my office — I’ve got 200 of them. I’m looking at Knight Rider, going, ‘Wow, I’ve done some pretty wild stuff.’ Would I go back to it? Sure. I’d do anything.
