Knight Rider Redux?

Hey all…

If any of you were like me and grew up in the 70s and 80s with the mix of great and horrible TV shows of the time, you’ll recall the David Hasslehoff show “Knight Rider”. Had to do with this organization Knight Industries which used a man (Michael Knight, played by Hasslehoff) and a cool talking car (KITT) to stop evildoers…

It’s baaack… And evidently this is the face of the guy playing the lead as Michael Knight’s son…

Can’t say that I know him, though according to Ain’t It Cool News and IMDB, he’s been on All My Children (ugh, soap operas) and most recently on a couple of episodes of Cold Case.

Not sure if Hasslehoff will make an appearance or not, but I have seen rumors that he’s involved in this re-imagining. We’ll see if it turns out to be a made for TV movie and spins into a series or if it dies a quick death.

Hopefully they’ll bring back the original voice of KITT with William Daniels, who still seems to be acting on TV and movies, most recently in The Closer and the movie Blades of Glory (see IMDB here).

Anyway, I have to say I’m not much of a Hasslehoff fan, but I enjoyed Knight Rider as a kid. We’ll see if it turns out to shine or just be total drek. 🙂

Until next time…
