Hasselhoff to
play gay in Las Vegas run of The Producers

Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has agreed to take on the role of gay director Roger DeBris in the upcoming Las Vegas run of The Producers, he announced yesterday in a press conference with director Mel Brooks at his side.

"He is perfect for Roger DeBris because he has the best legs in Hollywood," the BBC reported Brooks as saying. He went on to praise Hasselhoff for his "incredible comedic timing, terrific musical theater experience, and a stage presence that I think will be a perfect marriage for the role."

Hasselhoff, who previously starred in Broadway productions of Jekyll and Hyde and Chicago, humbly replied to Brooks's glowing remarks: "I am honored to be a part of anything Mel Brooks is involved with."

The musical will debut at the Paris Las Vegas hotel on January 31, with Brad Oscar on board to play producer Max Bialystock. The role of Leo Bloom has yet to be cast. (The Advocate)
