Sci-Fi Wire have been talking to new series showrunner Gary Scott Thompson, who revealed yesterday that David Hasselhoff is making final arrangements for an appearance on the show.
“He may make an appearance later this season,” Thompson told them. “He is talking to NBC next week, and we are working out everyone’s schedule… I don’t want to put him in just for the sake of having him drop by; I want there to be a good reason for him being there and have it be part of the story. I talked to David about a way of doing that, and so far he likes it. It’s a cool idea.”
Thompson says that Hasselhoff is “still a big fan of the show obviously. “He has known Bruce [Davison] for a long time, and when I met with him, he basically gave me his blessing, and I told him everything I wanted to do. And he said ‘That’s awesome.’ I do not want to get the fans’ hopes up or anything, but I’m talking to NBC, and he’s talking to NBC and it’s all a matter of timing.”
