David Hasselhoff

Biography

Date of Birth: 17 July 1952, Baltimore, Maryland, USA Birth Name: David Michael Hasselhoff Height: 6' 4" (1.93 m) Nickname: The Hoff David Michael Hasselhoff nicknamed "The Hoff", is an American actor who is best known for his lead roles on Knight Rider and Baywatch. He also crossed over to a successful music career, primarily in Austria, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kingdom. While his star rose, fell and rose again in the US, Hasselhoff remained very popular in much of Europe. His music was more popular there than in the US, and his hit song "Looking for Freedom" became something of an anthem for the defeat of communist regimes in eastern europe. [1]. This European popularity became something of an in joke, and is referenced in the film "Dodgeball" where Hasselhoff is shown as the demanding coach of the German team. But whatever his role in ending communism, Hasselhoff's popularity during this period was real enough, and even reached war-torn Yugoslavia. An anonymous young Bosnian recruited to help defend against the Serbs decorated his or her M-48 Mauser with pictures of Hasselhoff, creating the now legendary Hasselhoff Mauser.
