Hasselhoff Picks Simon Cowell Over Captain Hook

Posted on June 19, 2006 by

Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has cancelled his debut pantomime stage role to appear in a new reality series created by Simon Cowell, reports the BBC.

Hasselhoff was scheduled to play Captain Hook in a production of Peter Pan in London, UK.

However, the stage show clashes with Cowell’s new TV series, American’s Got Talent. Hasselhoff has signed on with the show to judge aspiring performers.

The 53-year-old has previously appeared onstage as “Billy Flynn” in a 2004 production of Chicago.

On America’s Got Talent, he’ll join fellow judges Piers Morgan, a British journalist, and R&B singer Brandy.

Contestants on the show, which debuts this week on NBC, will be competing for a $1 million US prize.
