FtL 203 – Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

David Hasselhoff plays the Marvel super spy in this 1998 pilot, delivering a performance that David Hasselhoff agreed (several times) was better than whoever’s doing it now.

What do you think of when you think of Nick Fury? War hero? Super spy? Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D? Well, in the 90’s, he was all of those, only he was still a smoker. Oh, and he was played by DAVID FREAKIN’ HASSELHOFF.

In ’98 the former Baywatch star played the comic book legend in a portrayal that Stan Lee and The Hoff himself agreed was better than “that other guy”. No one else did, apart from a few bad poetry enthusiasts and hobbyist miners.
