Justin Bruening is Knight Rider

Soap star Justin Bruening has been cast as the new Knight Rider, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The ex-All My Children hunk is set as the lead in NBC’s two-hour backdoor pilot Knight Rider, a Transformers-inspired sequel to the 1980s series, which is slated to air as a movie later in the season.

Bruening, 28, will play the son of Michael Knight, the character played by David Hasselhoff in the original series.

Steve Shill is going to direct the Knight Rider pilot. The script was penned by Dave Andron.

The pilot is set to start shooting before the end of the year.

    we are really original these days with the tv programming. hire a pretty boy soap actor to recreate an old tv show. how groundbreaking, this will be cancelled in one episode.
