For as long as I can remember, we’ve been told that one thing you should never do is “Hassel the Hoff,” but apparently, sharks didn’t get that memo because that’s EXACTLY what’s about to happen. David Hasselhoff has officially signed onto Sharknado 3 as Gilbert Sheperd, the father to Ian Ziering’s character Fin Sheperd. (That is, if the production strike plaguing the Syfy film gets resolved, anyway.)

The former Baywatch star joins an already robust cast featuring “stars” such as Mark Cuban, Ann Coulter, Chris Jericho, ‘N SYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick, Jerry Springer, and Bo Derek as Tara Reid’s character April’s mother.

Do you think David Hasselhoff will end up as a love interest to Bo Derek, a la Gina’s mom and Boyle’s dad from Brooklyn Nine-Nine? *ahem* Just throwing that out there, Sharknado 3 people. Either way, this news makes me feel feelings:
