LAS VEGAS, November 2, 2006 /PRNewswire/ -- The most honored show in Broadway history, the MEL BROOKS musical comedy THE PRODUCERS, at Paris Las Vegas announced today that David Hasselhoff has been signed to perform the outrageously flamboyant character, "Roger DeBris." Hasselhoff brings with him to Las Vegas an extensive career in film and television and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Watched TV star in the world. Hasselhoff's theatrical career began with his sold out Broadway debut in Jekyll and Hyde. That was followed by his celebrated performances as "Billy Flynn" in the Kander and Ebb smash Chicago, The Musical.
"I'm overjoyed that David Hasselhoff is going to play Roger DeBris in the Las Vegas production of THE PRODUCERS," said Mel Brooks. "He has an incredible comedic timing, terrific musical theater experience and a stage presence that I think will be a perfect marriage with the role. And by the way, he has great legs for that dress," he continued.
"I am honored to be a part of anything Mel Brooks is involved with," said David Hasselhoff. "He has always been my favorite man of comedy. He is a giant, and it is a dream come true to be a part of one of the greatest Broadway musicals in theater history," he continued.
The MEL BROOKS musical comedy THE PRODUCERS opened on Broadway on April 19, 2001 to unanimous rave reviews and is the recipient of the most Tony Awards in Broadway History (12, including Best Musical). Based on Mel Brooks' Academy Award-winning 1968 film of the same name, the show tells the story of down-on-his-luck theatrical producer, Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a mousy accountant. Together, with the help of their flamboyant director, Roger DeBris (Hasselhoff), they hatch the ultimate scam: raise more money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference. Their "sure-fire" theatrical fiasco?....None other than the musical Springtime for Hitler!
