Casting a movie is a difficult business. You have to match the tone and subject matter of the film with the sensibilities of the actors filling the screen, so naturally a movie like “Piranha 3DD” is going to cast the likes of David Hasselhoff and Gary Busey and surround them with beautiful women.
In anticipation of the theatrical and VOD release of “Piranha 3DD” on June 1, we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette about the cast of the upcoming horror-comedy.
David Hasselhoff took time out of his busy schedule to discuss his toughest role to date: playing himself in “Piranha 3DD.” “I play the role of David Hasselhoff, a lot of competition out there, but I won the role,” he said.
But “Piranha 3DD” doesn’t stop with the Hoff. The film also features Gary Busey, Ving Rhames and Christopher “Doc Brown” Lloyd.
This being a 3-D piranha movie, crazy actors are only one half of the equation. You also have to cast beautiful women, and director John Gulager gets perhaps a little too enthusiastic about casting “30 Rock”’s Katrina Bowden in the video.
But he isn’t alone in his appreciation of the women on set. The Hoff had this to say: “There were so many girls that were in such good shape, it looked like ’Baywatch’ on steroids. It was like living in a 3-D moment every time you would go to the pool.”
Be sure to check out our exclusive above, and tune into “Piranha 3DD” when it hits VOD on June 1.
