The Hoff Returns To The Young and the Restless!

| Filed under: TV NewsThe Hoff

Hey, it's a job!

David Hasselhoff will be reprising his role of Dr. William "Snapper" Foster, Jr. on The Young and the Restless for a brief story arc that will begin airing in mid-June.

The Hoff was on Y&R from 1975 to 1982. He says:

“In 1976, Bill Bell, creator of America’s No. 1 soap opera, took a chance on a young and very green actor. Playing Snapper in 850 shows during the six years I appeared molded my craft, my attitude and my work ethic.

"Being asked to come back to appear in several episodes gives me a chance to say thanks, as I have an amazing amount of respect and heartfelt emotion for Bill, his family and my time on Young and the Restless. I just hope I can remember all those lines.”

Check out one of Hoff's earlier scenes on the soap above!

Will U be tuning in to see David's triumphant return to daytime tv?

    well i dont care about The Hoff, but I would LOVE to see Ricky Martin come back to General Hospital as "Miguel" again!

    WOW what a kick for the Y&R that will be! All of us old-time watchers will be ecstatic, LOVE IT :-)

    It's the only time I actually liked Hasselhoff. But I've got to say that looking back at this, I really miss the days when not every face in Hollywood looked the same. And we actually thought people that weren't "perfect" were hot even though they had crooked teeth or a slightly too large nose or whatever. And that we were more concerned with their ability to act than their ability to look good. For me, diversity is more interesting than everyone looking alike with their plastic surgery faces. It's boring.

    Just curious; does the doctor have any substance abuse issues?

    The BIG question is whether David will be SOBER when he's on "The Young and the Restless" or will he be rolling around on the floor with his hamburger? Why does this alcoholic insist on staying in the public eye? He should spend some time in a detox facility…
