Three for Knight Rider
While the Knight Rider movie never took off, the television series is coming along nicely. NBC has picked up a cast trifecta for the two-hour pilot.
Bruce Davison, Wayne Kasserman, and Greg Ellis for Knight Rider
Bruce Davison, Wayne Kasserman and Greg Ellis have been picked up for Knight Rider, the TV series, movie thingy.
Though I didn't know this was possible, this version of Knight Rider will serve as the sequel to the series in the 80s. The continuation will center on Mike Tracer (Justin Bruening), Michael Knight's (David Hasselhoff) son who never knew his dad.
Tracer is recruited by his childhood best friend, Sarah Graiman (Deanna Russo), and her eccentric physicist father, Charles (Davison), to join the Knight Foundation, a group committed to counteracting and preventing the damage done by private, covert military contractors.
To assist their missions, Charles creates the second-generation KITT, an artificially intelligent car that can sometimes be compared to an overbearing wife.
A shady millionaire approaches Charles to commission a KITT car, and when Charles refuses, he hires a military contractor to murder him and steal the car.
Ellis will play Welther, one of the bad guys. The role is considered guest-starring, with a potential to continue if Knight Rider goes to series.
Kasserman plays Dylan, Mike's loyal roommate, friend and race car mechanic who joins the Knight Rider team.
