The New York Daily News reports the bosses at ABC are negotiating with The Hoff to judge American Idol. An insider revealed, (quote) “David is interested in the role. His management made contact with the show’s executives with a view to working out a deal.”
Auditions started last week. There is a limited time to secure judges for the Idol reboot.
They’re getting desperate to fill the vacant seats next to Katy Perry, who demanded 25 million dollars. The budget is tight, and David Hasselhoff would come cheap. A frenemy said of The Hoff, (quote) “Idol is the type of show he does as much for his passion for this work as for the money.”
