KNIGHT RIDER'S DAVID HASSELHOFF

David Hasselhoff returns to his 1980s franchise with the Knight Rider movie that airs on NBC on Sunday at 9 p.m.

Hasselhoff reprises his role of Michael Knight in a guest-role appearance. Justin Bruening stars as Mike Tracer, the estranged son of Hasselhoff's character, and former Batman Val Kilmer provides the voice of KITT.

In a video interview, Hasselhoff, who also played Nick Fury in Fox's television movie 10 years ago, said he's remembered more for Knight Rider than Baywatch and that now is an ideal time for the franchise to return.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER'S BROOKE SHIELDS

Brooke Shields, who plays Carol Ferris in the upcoming Justice League: The New Frontier animated movie, said "there's nothing silly" about working in animation.

"I'm always impressed with the artists and the technology," said Shields, who also guest-starred in an episode of Kids' WB!'s The Batman as The Riddler's girlfriend. "It's also really nice to be behind the scenes, but still be an actress. The characters themselves precede you, but you're still right with them, supporting them. There's a wonderful thing that happens when you have the cans (headphones) on and there's time and place to sort of infuse these characters."

Carol plays a key role in the film, recruiting Hal Jordan, who becomes Earth's Green Lantern.

Not having seen the physical look of Carol until nine months into the project, Shields said she was initially attracted to the character's strong sensibilities and absolute determination to succeed in what-was-then a man's world.

"I think the thing that I responded to with Carol, as a character, is that, if you think about the 1950s, people were not sympathetic towards women in any position other than the very traditional homemaker -- and here's Carol, this revolutionary woman for that period of time," Shields said. "There's a strength in Carol -- she's not willing to lose her sexuality by being in a man's world, and she's determined to be respected for having the same intelligence and ability to stay on course, and be par for the course, with the men that she's surrounded by. I admire her character from that perspective for that period of time, and I would admire her in this day and age."

Shields finally got to see Carol's appearance during looping.

"She's hot!" Shields said with a laugh. "I wish I could cut my hair like hers. I just love her. And I love that pencil skirt that she's wearing, too."

Shields, who is currently starring in NBC's Lipstick Jungle, finds super-heroes appealing.

"I'm so drawn to the concept of a female warrior as the lead character -- I've loved it since before they had shows like Alias and Bionic Woman, Shields said. "As I'm not exactly, let's say, a dainty girl -- I'm not frail, and no matter what I do, I'm not little -- I've always secretly wished to have to go through some kind of training to do a big, physical role. I've trained with the Blue Angels and I've done triathlons, but ultimately, I think I want to be a super hero. Okay, I just want to play a super hero. I think that would be great. I'd love to do that kind of role."
