Hasselhoff to star in musical based on his life
25 July 2006Â
David Hasselhoff is to star in a musical based on his life.
The show will be inspired by the 54-year-old's career, US soap opera The Young and The Restless and the songs of Teddy Pendergrass.
Hasselhoff, who has battled alcoholism, is quoted by website Celebrityweek.com as saying: "I am doing a heart-rendering set on my life and the mistakes I have made.
"It sounds like a bad joke, but it is really going to be a good show...totally campy."
He added: "It's written by the same people who wrote Bette Midler's show and produced by the people who produced Chicago in London."
The production - simply called David Hasselhoff: The Musical - will open in Melbourne, Australia, before moving to America.
The actor - who is due to release his autobiography in September - said: "If it ends up in Las Vegas, how great would that be? I want to entertain people. Sammy Davis Junior was my hero."
