The responsibility of much of the light hearted comedy, as well as helping KITT save the day, falls to Billy Morgan (played by Paul Campbell) who is the head research technician at Knight Industries. We spoke with Paul a bit about his role, and got quite a few chuckles out of our time with him.

Note that some of this interview, as well as Smith Cho's interview, has been held to a later date due to revealing information about a future episode.

Many thanks to Paul, Smith, Bruce, Yancey and Sydney for spending some of their limited time with us! We still have more to come, so check back!

From NBCs press kit we have a number of onset interviews to share with you. Included are Justin Bruening, Deanna Russo, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Bruce Davison, Yancey Arias, Smith Cho, Paul Campbell, Gary Scott Thompson and Elan & Rajeev Dassani.

In order to save on page load times for those with smaller connections, the videos are after the jump!

As one of the four cast members from the original February pilot, Sydney Tamiia Poitier is back as FBI Agent Carrie Rivai. We had the pleasure of interviewing Sydney before the two hour pilot, so we were able to talk to her more now about where her character has come from since then - and why she's in the SSC.

Tomorrow we will have our interview with Paul Campbell!, but for now - here is a preview after the jump!

Yancey Arias comes to Knight Rider very eager to play the role of Alex Torres. His character is in charge of the Satellite Surveillance Center (SSC) or what everyone else likes to call the KITTCave.

In real life, Yancey created a charity called Lives to Save Foundation. Started in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the foundation gives donations to those families in need.

There is just a few hours over a day left in the Clothes Off Our Back auction to help children's charities. Jeans worn by Justin Bruening, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, and Yancey Arias are signed and available to bid on. Currently, Justin's jeans are leading the bids, going for $100. Bid while you can, and you'll be helping some very needy children.

The ever talented Bruce Davison was the first of many kind actors to speak with us on set. Bruce is one of four actors that are carrying over from the pilot in February. In this interview, Bruce discusses how he memorizes all the technobable he needs to sprout - and the changes from the pilot to now for his character.

We first got the chance to finally speak with Bruce back at the Comic Con in July - but this time the location was a lot more inspiring.

What we enjoyed most with talking with Bruce was the many off camera stories he had to tell from his many years as an actor. He was also extremely kind to us and walked us around the set pointing out alot of fun detail - some of which we will post in a few days. It will be one of our favorite memories of our time on set.

As previously reported, Gary Scott Thompson said that he has been in talks with David Hasselhoff to make an appearance in the new show. The only issue was scheduling. An "industry insider" told Knight Rider Online that the Hoff's role might be a bit bigger than we were led to believe. Rather than being a one-time appearance, Hasselhoff would return in a major multi-episode story arc. This is consistent with what Hasselhoff hinted at in a recent interview with KZZP Phoenix Radio. After explaining that the people who didn't want him in the new series are no longer at NBC, he added:

"I don't have to be in every episode, I'd be in five, I don't care..."

Negotiations are not final but don't be surprised to see a significant ongoing storyline featuring  Hasselhoff in the second half of the season.
