David Hasselhoff stars in the pay-per-view Jekyll & Hyde on March 10 at 8 p.m.
Q. You're in Chile singing in Spanish right now? Why Spanish? Do the Germans speak a lot of Spanish?
A. There are no Germans down here. There might be a few in hiding. I'm trying to break the Spanish market. They love El Coche Fantastico. They love Knight Rider.
Q. Can't you bring Baywatch back? My life has no meaning.
A. Someone talked to me about doing a Baywatch reunion. I said, "Guys, you don't do a reunion the day after we're canceled. You have to wait until we're old and sagging so people can make fun of us."
Q. Of all the bad decisions you made as the producer, was the worst going with the one-piece for Baywatch?
A. That was the decision of the L.A. County lifeguards.
Q. You met your wife on Baywatch, right?
A. No. Knight Rider. A lot of things went on in that talking car.
Q. Do they pay you double for playing Jekyll and Hyde?
A. They pay me very little for both.
Q. Sure, after Baywatch, Warren Buffett's salary seems little to you.
A. He seems very little to me.
Q. Did you use a lot of what Sebastian Bach brought to the role?
A. I saw Sebastian twice. Once with my wife.
Q. I can't believe you brought your wife. I'd keep my girlfriend as far away as possible from that guy.
A. He's a good-looking guy. He is Sebastian Bach. He's like, "Dude, man. It was killer. The girls. Dude, it's awesome."
Q. Well, thanks so much.
A. O.K., Joel. Remember: Germans love you.
