David Hasselhoff won’t be formally roasted by Comedy Central until later this summer, but there’s no reason we can’t get a laugh at his cheesiness now.
Beginning June 15, the Hoff will reprise the role of Dr. William “Snapper” Foster, Jr. on The Young and the Restless. David, who left the daytime drama in 1982, will be back in Genoa City for only a short period. Snapper’s visit will reunite him with his siblings and ill mother.
You can see Hasselhoff talking about his return after the jump.

Although it hasn’t even been two weeks since Bret Michaels was released from the hospital, the musician already has a packed schedule.
According to the 47-year-old’s website, Michaels - who had been receiving treatment for a brain hemorrhage - is currently preparing for dates on the road and on television. A May 28 concert at Biloxi’s Hard Rock Live will first be preceded by a May 19 appearance on Oprah. A potential stop in New York for the Celebrity Apprentice finale on May 23 is also a possibility.
“[Bret] turned out to be a real fighter,” Donald Trump told Access Hollywood. “I wasn’t sure about Bret when I first met him. I wasn’t sure. People had different thoughts. He’s turned out to be a highly competitive guy who everyone liked.”
Custom Built - Michael’s upcoming album - will be released on June 8. He will reportedly remain on tour through December.
