This was a no-brainer, wasn't it? And I don't just mean David Hasselhoff himself. The original Knight Rider is in talks to appear in the upcoming TV-movie/backdoor pilot, playing the father that soap hunk Justin Bruening's speed demon never knew. Deanna Russo, who recently played doctor on The Young and the Restless (Hoff's old stomping grounds), has also joined the cast as Bruening's old flame, a beautiful but brilliant engineer (aren't they all?) who is told by the talking car that her father is MIA. - Ben Katner
