The original Producer of ‘Baywatch’ Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz Unveiled few secret that Leonardo Dicaprio was originally cast as David Hasselhoff’s son on the iconic ’90s beach drama, as revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Oscar winner was just 15 years old when he auditioned for the role. “We actually had DiCaprio ready to be cast,” Berk said. “But David thought he was too old to play his son.” Schwarts added that David thought Leo would have made him look older (even though he was only 30): “he had a lot of concerns of that type.”
Just imagine what could have been.
