The Hoff Won't Re-Produce, Danza Replacement Rumors Iffy

David Hasselhoff's tenure as Roger DeBris in Mel Brooks' The Producers at Paris Las Vegas will not be extended due to The Hoff's committment to the Gong Show 2007 aka "Americas Got Talent."

This may be a big deal if The Hoff were in the role for a year or so, but he really hasn't dug his teeth into Vegas for long enough to have garnered an audience.

Norm! is reporting that talentless former boxer/TV Talker/TV Cab Driver Tony "Abbon" Danza may be tapped to replace the Hoff. Danza is currently performing in The Producers on Broadway. According to Theater industry rag Playbill, Danza is out.

Replacing one talentless fool with another even more talentless fool - if it is even possible - is a Vegas kitch lover's dream come true. Unfortunately, The Hoff will be replaced by Lee Roy Reams, also from the Producers NY production.

Why not tap Richard Simmons for the role?



Comments & Discussion:

You're only partially correct, I think. Here's my guess:
Hasselhoff plays Roger DeBris in Vegas.
Danza currently plays Max Bialystock on Broadway.
Lee Roy Reams is, in fact, taking over for Hasselhoff... but Danza will probably be joining the cast as Max Bialystock, replacing Brad Oscar.

Thanks for the tip-off V--. I just should probably not post news bits after opening a new bottle of scotch - yeah 11am and i'm hittin the bottle - ain't life grand!

You mean Tony Danza's actually playing a role where his character's name isn't Tony?

Now we will know "Who's the Boss?" Wonder if the kid who played a-sexual Jonathan will join him?
