David Hasselhoff - The Hoff at 60
Love this picture of The Hoff as Mitch Buchannon; if he attempts to breathe in any further, he'll implode. Baywatch first aired in 1989 before it was cancelled. But The Hoff believed in it so much that he acquired it and, with his producing partners, revived the show from 1991. The rest is history.
And I truly mean that because at one point, the world's most beautiful lifeguard unit had an audience of over one billion viewers in more than 148 countries, making The Hoff the most-watched TV star on the planet. In addition to launching the careers of Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, Carmen Electra and Traci Bingham, Baywatch was the favourite TV show of Friends' Joey and Chandler.
Hoff-ism: "If Mitch saves someone from drowning, and that person then goes out and releases a virus that kills a million people, imagine the moral implications of that."
