Glen Larson

Today is an incredibly sad day for Knight Rider fans all around the world, as Glen A Larson - the creator of Knight Rider - has passed away at the age of 77 from esophageal cancer.

We at Knight Rider Online would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Glen's family during this difficult time. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

We were always excited to chat with him at Knight Rider events and we are sad that his dream to bring Knight Rider to the silver screen will continue without him at the helm.

Thank you Glen for your creation and teaching a generation that one man can make a difference.

Larson Interview - by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in 2009

Last month, WWE Studios (yes, the wrestling folks) announced production of a movie starring Ken Jeong (Hangover) as a man who tries to win a celebrity death pool by killing David Hasselhoff. Hulk Hogan has a cameo (hence the WWE connection.) The Hoff is one of the producers and will also appear in the film as himself in a small role.

KITT will have a small part in the movie as well. Knight Rider Online obtained a casting call looking for voice actors for the role:

“We need a talented impressionist to mimic exactly the voice of KITT, the car from Knight Rider in a hilarious scene with David Hasselhoff's character. KITT, who has a combative relationship with David's agent, is actually a man that sits in the back seat of David's car and speaks to him from there. Three lines.”

The theatrical release is expected in 2015.

Variety covered the initial film announcement

KITT and Michael are back together! But their relationship seems to be in trouble... Samsung released a new extended commercial online promoting their Smart Home products. In the ad, David Hasselhoff tries to explain all of the new features, only to be constantly interrupted by a very jealous KITT. We get a look "behind the scenes" of the commercial to hear the Hoff explain the appeal of Knight Rider and to make sense of his partner's behavior.

Happy Birthday to Catherine Hickland! Catherine played Michael Knight's fiancee and (short-lived) wife Stevie in three of Knight Rider fans' favorite episodes. She was also married in real life to David Hasselhoff. In recent years she has become a tremendous friend to the Knight Rider fandom, and even has her own KITT replica. She is a big supporter of the Knight RIder Festival in her home town of Las Vegas.

Here's a bio of her as published in Parade Magazine back in 1999. She currently hosts a comedy-hypnosis show in Las Vegas.

This weeks episode of ABC's show Castle featured both Mike Knight and RCIII in guest roles during an investigation in the death of a champion swimmer.

Justin Bruening (aka Mike Knight) played the couch of and Peter Parros (RCIII) played the doctor to the departed and were both questioned by Beckett and Castle - the show's main characters.

Unfortunately the two of them didn't share any screen time, so those fans looking for a generational Knight Rider collaboration will still have to wait.

If you are in the US you can watch this weeks episode on Hulu.

The series premier of The Hasselhoffs premieres Sunday, December 5 at 10/9c on A&E. If you are not familiar, it's a ten episode half-hour long series that brings you into the household of David Hasselhoff. They filmed a lot of Knight Rider related things, from his appearance at the Knight Rider Festival, to driving up in KITT for Pink's Hot Dogs and of course the impromptu Parade at Comic Con. Watch as he raises his two daughters as a single parent with their up-and-coming group “Bella Vida.”

About “The Hasselhoffs”:
The series tags along with father and daughter Taylor-Ann performing side-by-side on set of “The Young and The Restless,” goes behind-the-scenes with Hayley at “Huge,” steps in-studio with “Bella Vida” to record, write songs and meet with producers, watches David’s preparations for a comedy roast and travels to Austria where David orchestrates a production of an epic scale, one where the entire family’s reputation hangs in the balance. With three entertainers with big personalities and an unparalleled sibling rivalry between the girls in the house, there is never a dull moment with “The Hasselhoffs,” but throughout it all, David proves he is a dedicated father and no matter what challenges he faces, he has the best interests of his daughters in mind.

David Hasselhoff was in downtown Los Angeles today filming a music video for his upcoming A&E reality series and we were there watching it happen. The production crew contacted Paul Casey from Paul Casey Productions to provide KITT cars for the shoot, building on the relationship by the Hoff's appearance at Knight Riser Festival II in Las Vegas. Paul brought his KITT (actually, his baby daughter's) out from Vegas, and worked with our friends from Knights of the West Coast for more cars. Gary Hunter, Alex Wong and Jennifer Catano also provided KITTs for filming.

Look for an eyewitness report in the forum soon, and we'll have more news involving Paul Casey and the Hoff in the next few days.
