Hoff Would Love To Play Lovejoy

Former Baywatch star and Britain’s Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff has said he’d love to play the lead role in a remake of classic TV series Lovejoy.

Talking to Piers Morgan, Hasselhoff said: “I just haven’t had the right role yet, and I don’t think it’s ever going to come, because The Hoff has taken over. I’d like to remake Lovejoy, I loved Lovejoy, I think it’s great. I’d like to do Lawrence of Arabia. I’d say I’d like to do Hamlet, but I don’t think so, it’s too hard, long hours.â€?

Perhaps the reason that Hasselfhoff adores Lovejoy so much is that he and Ian McShane’s character seem to share a similar dress sense?

The full interview with Piers Morgan will be on ITV1 on Saturday May 7.
