I agree. Its looking unlikely. Even though he's doing fairly successfully on TV and around the world, his movie appearances have been minimal, like in Kickin it Old School and that Click movie.
A vague sequel movie/continuation would probably be successfull, but its fairly obvious Hollywood only wants to do a remake.
They are already remaking Robocop, so a full remake is most likely on the cards.
I do believe the Hoff cares about Knight Rider. He cared enough to save Baywatch multiple times, and it worked.
If you watched the Hoff interview with Piers Morgan, you can see the Hoff has always wanted to be taken seriously as an actor, and when he has been on form on Baywatch, and Knight Rider, he has been superb. Its not his fault, Hollywood has insulted him and mocked him, and i don't think he has deserved this tag of being a buffoon.
I do understand his reasons for embracing the Hoff persona though, because its helped him retain his popularity around the world and shows he's not afraid to make fun of himself. its also helped him make more money than he would have by doing nothing and feeling sorry for himself.
As for his ego, i don't really think its that big, he's just a loud, exciting and energetic person who you sit up and take notice of when you see him.
He has star quality, unlike many generic turd wipes actors today.
And at least he still loves Knight Rider, the show that made him a global star, which is more than I can say for many obnoxious actors who disown shows that made them famous in the first place.
The Hoff is a legend and deserves recognition.
