David Hasselhoff is to play Ebenezer Scrooge in a production of A Christmas Carol in Nottingham later this year.
The Baywatch and Knightrider star will portray the famously grumpy character in a musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens festive classic at the Motorpoint Arena in December.
The production will also feature a holographic appearance from actress Pauline Quirke as the Ghost of Christmas Past.
Hasselhoff said: "It’s not a panto, it’s a fully-fledged Christmas show. It’s the Dickens classic with great music on a spectacular scale."
