In a move that everyone was expecting yet was taking so long to become official we were starting to get a little bit worried, David Hasselhoff has joined the cast of the Baywatch Movie. 

Hasselhoff joins a cast that already boasts The Rock, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, and Hannibal Buress.

Like he's done with all of the casting announcements for the movie so far, The Rock took to social media with a video to announce the Hoff's involvement and it was glorious. 

"I WAS BORN READY!" Pleasure to officially welcome the original #BAYWATCH gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie! #BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, "The Hoff" has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN....Hoff's a cool dude who's down to have fun and here's the best part.. He's been training his ass off and gotten in the best shape he's been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f*ck am I even thinking about Hoff's chest hair!?) World get ready.. #RockAndHoff #ThereAintNoBay #WithoutTheHoff

Now that we know the Hoff is definitely on board the question is who will he play? The Rock is already playing Mitch Buchannon. Although Priyanka Chopra has already been announced as the villain we'd be shocked if the Hoff isn't revealed to be the mastermind behind it all. We'll have to wait until May 2017 to find out for sure.
