Hasselhoff will appear in performances Dec. 10-17, Dec 21-30 and Jan. 9-16 only.

In a statement Hasselhoff said, "Peter Pan is a show that has always been close to my heart, as my first theatre role was playing Lost Boy Nibs when I was a child. I am so delighted to be asked to join this British tradition. I know all about Pantomime as some of my good friends have already appeared in previous productions. They’ve told me how much fun it is. Get ready London for Hoff The Hook!"

Hasselhoff – or The Hoff as he is known to his fans – previously appeared in the West End when he played Billy Flynn in Chicago. He has also appeared on Broadway in the musical Jekyll and Hyde.

Hasselhoff is joined by Louie Spence, of TV's "Pineapple Studios" documentary, as the cabin boy Roger.
