David Hasselhoff Turns to Porn, Set to Ruin a Perfectly Great F/X Show

David Hasselhoff, he of “Baywatch” and “Knight Rider,” is set to join “Sons of Anarchy” this upcoming season. He will play a former porn star turned girl-on-girl skin flick director and will, at the very least, hopefully give Opie a nemesis (assuming his old lady is a participant of the girl-on-girl skin flicks). It will also allow Hasselhoff to engage in some late-career self-parody. But here’s why it’s a terrible idea: Because “Sons of Anarchy” has been built around good writing and great acting. This is not like resurrecting Travolta or Jackie Earle Haley. Hasselhoff was never a good actor to begin with. He’s a joke. And he’s a joke without any discernible talent (except to Germans). I’ll concede that it will be nice to see “SoA” bring back some of the dark humor that Tig had to carry all by himself last season, but Hasshelhoff is not the way to go, and his turn in Piranha 3DD this fall isn’t going to do anything other than remind us how little we should take him seriously.
