David Hasselhoff is in PAIN

And re-recording Culture Club.

Baywatch and Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff is being recreated as a playable character in PSN game PAIN.

His likeness, complete with posh tuxedo and Knight Rider suit (emblazoned with "The Hoff" on the back) will be downloadable from 6th November, according to the US PlayStation blog.

Hasselhoff has also re-recorded a version of Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" for the game, which he'll sing as you thrash him around the Movie Studio area.

"The idea of 'hurting The Hoff' or 'hassling The Hoff' was just hysterical to me," Hasselhoff told People magazine, while struggling to eat a burger and singing down the Berlin Wall.

PAIN was released at the beginning of the year to decent reviews, and has been regularly updated throughout the year.
