Don’t hassel the hoff! Between his reality series, all of the drinking, and looking for cheeseburgers, he is a pretty busy guy. Now, his plate is going to be even more full as he reprises his role of Dr. William “Snapper” Foster Jr on “The Young and the Restless”! Hasselhoff lasted appeared on the CBS soap in 1982 when his character left for a three-month fellowship in London to teach, and never returned. His run on the show will be short and he’ll be joined with returning cast members Wings Hauser (as GregFoster) and Julianna McCarthy (as Liz Foster Brooks).
I think this is a really cool move by the Hoff. Anything that brings attention to daytime soaps is positive in my book, because sadly, soaps are a dying breed. There are no other dramatic (and narrative) programming that is new every week out of the year. And once soaps are gone, we’ll never see this style of programming again.
