Good news and bad news about NBC’s Knight Rider update. Good news is that David Hasselhoff is close to signing on to reprise his role as Michael Knight. Bad news is that the project’s protagonist is Mike Tracer (to be played by All My Children regular Justin Bruening), the son Knight never knew. Shame on you, producers! The Hoff is ageless! He deserves to be behind the wheel again, not cooling his heels in KITT’s backseat. He can handle this sort of thing in his sleep, while snoring a ditty that’ll go to No. 1 on the German pop chart. C’mon, PopWatchers, wouldn’t you like to see a Knight Rider reboot with more Hoff and less Hoffspring?
