David Hasselhoff is in talks to appear on NBC’s upcoming revival of the ’80s TV series Knight Rider. He would reprise his role as Michael Knight in the TV movie pilot, which will focus on Knight’s son, Mike Tracer, played by Justin Bruening (All My Children). In other Knight Rider casting news, Deanna Russo (The Young & the Restless) has been cast as the female lead, Sarah Kamen. Sarah is Mike’s childhood friend and one-time lover who offers to bail him out of a gambling debt in exchange for his help finding her father, Charles Kamen, the genius inventor of the talking car KITT who has gone missing. Steve Shill (Spike TV’s Kill Point) will direct the telepic pilot, set to air later this season, which could lead to a new Knight Rider series, if it does well. (Hollywood Reporter)
