It probably would’ve become the greatest box office hit in Germany….because, y’know, Germans LOVE David Hasselhoff.
In a recent chat with MTV, the man known simply as ‘The Hoff’ mentioned that, back in 1978, he was very close to being cast AS…
According to Hasselhoff, “Christopher Reeve got the part, and it was one of the most brilliant decisions that my staff and I made. They said, ‘You don’t want to be Superman because you’ll be Superman for the rest of the your life.'” He then added, “So that’s why those people are no longer with me.”
Hey, if the Hoff became Superman, we might never have had ‘Knight Rider’. Or ‘Baywatch’. Or all that, um……great music. ~ Jason
