Threesome Rounds Out Knight Rider Cast

ON

Bruce Davison, Wayne Kasserman and Greg Ellis round out the cast of NBC’s upcoming two-hour movie/pilot “Knight Rider,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Knight Rider,” from Universal and Dutch Oven, is a sequel to the 1980s series and centers on Mike Tracer (Justin Bruening), Michael Knight’s (David Hasselhoff) son who never knew his dad.

Tracer is recruited by his childhood best friend, Sarah Graiman (Deanna Russo), and her eccentric physicist father, Charles (Davison), to join the Knight Foundation, a group committed to counteracting and preventing the damage done by private, covert military contractors.

To assist their missions, Charles creates the second-generation KITT, an artificially intelligent car.

A shady millionaire approaches Charles to commission a KITT car, and when Charles refuses, he hires a military contractor to murder him and steal the car.

Ellis will play Welther, one of the bad guys. The role is considered guest-starring, with a potential to continue if “Knight Rider” goes to series.

Kasserman plays Dylan, Mike’s loyal roommate, friend and race car mechanic who joins the Knight Rider team.
