And Hasselhoff has even more to celebrate: he's a got a new job lined up. The birthday boy told U.K.'s Daily Express he'll be appearing in an upcoming Baywatch movie, but he won't be reprising his role as Mitch Buchannon.

"I've just met the guy writing the film. I'm going to play myself," he explained. "We're trying to make it a very cool, updated version."

Hasselhoff recently revealed in an interview with Movieline that Leonardo DiCaprio auditioned to play his son on the original Baywatch, but Jeremy Jackson won the role.

"It was the best thing to happen to Leonardo DiCaprio," Hasselhoff said of the superstar, laughing. "I saw Leonardo DiCaprio and I said, 'You know what, that was the best thing that ever happened to you! You would have never gotten Titanic and have been this big star. You'd be like Jeremy Jackson and David, looking for work."
