Michael Jackson has Neverland. Victoria and David Beckham have Beckingham Palace. And David Hasselhoff has…the Hassel Castle?

"I’m looking to buy a castle — I’ll call it the Hassel Castle," the actor tells AOL.

The not-so-humble abode won’t just be for kicks — David hopes to hold concerts there now that he’s revitalizing his music career. He’s currently working on his new album, The Romantics, with Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn.

"I have such an affinity for his type of music: big, beautiful ballads," he says. "No matter what mood I’m in, no matter what press is out about me, I put on these songs and I feel good."

Between the Hassel Castle, his disc, being a dad to daughters Taylor, 18, and Hayley, 15, and judging America’s Got Talent, it’s hard to believe The Hoff can find time for anything else. But, alas, he does — the 55-year-old may guest star on NBC’s upcoming Knight Rider series and has even bigger plans (and hopes) for his other landmark series, Baywatch.

"It’s kicking around over at DreamWorks, but I don’t know what’s going to happen with that," he says. "A while back I tried to buy the rights because I wanted to do Baywatch the Musical. It would have been fantastic! But they’re idiots … they’re all idiots. Corporate people only think of dollars and cents."
