When it was annouced that Gary Busey had joined the cast of Piranha 3DD you could actually sense the internet doing a backflip out of excitement. The man is an endless source of entertainment, whether he's being made into an infinite loop or just acting totally nutterbutters. Now another internet icon has joined the winning team.
Dimension Films, via a press release, has announced that David Hasselhoff has signed on for the horror sequel. Unlike the first film, which was set during Spring Break in Lake Victoria, the new film will take place in a water park. Hasselhoff's film career has been fairly limited in recent years (his last movie was called Dancing Ninja and he played a character called "Ansel Ladouche"), though he became an internet sensation when a video of him drunk and eating a hamburger went viral a few years ago. Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer are all returning for the sequel, while newcomers include Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka and David Koechner. The film is being directed by John Gulager and is currently in production.
Do I fear that they are trying to the Snakes on a Plane route and gather all of the internet memes they can into one movie? Sure. But that doesn't mean I don't want to see Hoff running in slow motion and then being eaten to death by fish.
