David Michael Hasselhoff (born July 17, 1952) is an American actor and musician best known for his roles on ''Series/KnightRider'' and ''Series/{{Baywatch}}''. An icon of TheEighties, his good looks and macho aesthetic made him one of the most popular actors of his day. His music career achieved similar success, with his first album "Looking For Freedom" becoming an international chart-topper and going triple-platnum in Europe. Though his golden age may have passed, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTidn2dBYbY the 80's live on in him.]]

Also worth noting is that he was ComicBook/NickFury long before Creator/SamuelLJackson, starring as the character in the 1998 MadeForTVMovie ''Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.'' Perhaps as a nod to this, [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel Studios]] gave him a cameo in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', for which he also recorded [[Music/GuardiansInferno an end credits song]].

Oh, and [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the Germans love him]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SebarSe6u4c Really]].
