David Hasselhoff is the king of movie cameos. Whether it is his small part in Dodgeball or his part in the original Spongebob movie; The Hoff is film-legend. Now, you might be wondering why Hasselhoff and Marvel Studios’ latest film, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 are in the same headline; but – apparently – the actor has a part in the new movie. Hasselhoff’s name is credited on the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 soundtrack, in the track ‘Guardians Inferno.’ While promoting the new film at last night’s premiere, Hasselhoff revealed some unique details about his part of the movie.
“I can’t tell you much about my association with the movie, but check it out. You’re gonna like it. James Gunn, when he was eight years old, watched a show called Knight Rider. And because of that show, he kinda wooed into singing the main title song, which I’ve already cut, and it’s really fun, and he wrote that. And I got to know him and his parents and the whole Marvel gang. And what I’m allowed to tell you is that it was a really great experience.”

In addition to his role in Guardians, Hasselhoff can next be seen in the Baywatch reboot with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the new Guardians film? I know my interest is at an all-time high thanks to The Hoff.
