David Hasselhoff Joins The Celebrity Apprentice Australia; Dog Day For The Hoff

"The Hoff" flew in to Sydney, Australia yesterday off the long flight from London, but Hasselhoff didn’t look too worse for wear.

Yesterday he was doing Bondi Beach and today he tipped off the world via his Twitter that he would be at Alexandria today, and "The Hoff" didn’t disappoint.

Today he appeared in a motivator type role for Australia’s Celebrity Apprentice as he participated in the celebrity dog wash antics at Sydney Park, Alexandria, in front of an appreciative crowd of almost a thousand (and a few hundred dogs).

Ian "Dicko" Dickson and Vince Sorrenti appeared to be the most vocal on the megaphone in getting pooch (and Hoff) lovers to part with their hard earned cash. All had to work hard as the celeb dog wash and other doggie activities occurred in 30 something degrees heat. Hoff was able to cool off a bit with his young girlfriend and was seen reaching for the sweat rag more than once. Hoff’s son seemed to enjoy himself, and former AFL star Jason Akermanis was frequently running around the park’s stalls. Even Batman and The Joker from DC Comics fame showed up for the fun. On the other side of the park the women’s team got into the spirit of things too, but Hoff’s team drew the biggest crowd 10:1. All the talent we spoke with today were very friendly and seemed to genuinely appreciate the strong turn out.

When quizzed about his favourite breed of dog, Hasselhoff joked "Hoff Dog", which got a nice reaction from the crowd. His shirt removal appeared to get the biggest pop from the crowd and as you would expect news media and fans focused in on Hoff’s chest.

To their credit, event organisers offered water to the crowd. Police were on hand for the event and its understood things ran smoothly throughout.

Channel Nine producers believe former Baywatch star Hasselhoff will guarantee the second series of Apprentice will make global headlines.

Hasselhoff is appearing on the show to raise money for his nominated charity, Starlight Foundation.

Today he joined other signings including outspoken and gay AFL identity Jason Akermanis, former Australian Idol judge Ian "Dicko" Dickson and others. Also participating in today’s dog mania was comedian Vince Sorrenti, Ben Dark and Tania Zaetta and Lauryn Eagle were on the ladies team.

Thousands of dollars was raised today but we understand you will have to tune into Channel Nine to find out exactly what the final $ bottom line was.

Filming of the new Australian celebrity Apprentice began in Sydney this week.

The show will once again be hosted by Australian finance guru Mark Bouris.

This coming Celebrity Apprentice is expected to rate higher than the last series, and if a success, producers will consider a third time lucky run. Woof.

Nick Marketing Blur Reads…

The road to slime has begun and the 2011 Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will once again be the biggest party for kids on the planet! Featuring celebrity presenters, hot music acts, surprise reveals and gallons of gooey slime, this is the hottest family entertainment ticket in town!

New award categories will this year see KCA celeb veterans Rove McManus, Guy Sebastian, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Bindi and Robert Irwin compete to be inducted into the HALL OF SLIME, while breakthrough Aussie stars Cody Simpson and Samara Weaving battle it out against American npminees Willow Smith and Victoria Justice for the SUPER FRESH award.

In a new and highly contentious hot topic category, will it be PM Julia Gillard or Opposition Leader Tony Abbott that gets voted by kids as the ‘most green’ to take out the SLIME MINISTER? And, will they be brave enough to accept the nation’s dare to prove how green they really are – literally – and be SLIMED live on the KCA stage?

Happy Feet Two Australian Premiere With Robin Williams And George Miller At Entertainment Quarter In Sydney

The Happy Feet Two Australian premiere took place at Moore Park, Fox Studios this afternoon, and it was happy feet galore as celebs did the white carpet, with snowflakes flying around all of us.

Sydney has gone head over heels for Mumbles, Erik and Lovelace, and they would just love to see you and your family see their film when it opens in Australia on 15th December.

Even the Sydney weather got in the mood for the movie with a bit of an Arctic chill in the air.

The sequel to the animated smash-hit Happy Feet reunites the Academy Award winners to the magnificent and super cool landscape of Antarctica, this time in 3D.

Mumble’s tiny son Erik is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik and his friends run away where they soon meet The Mighty Sven – a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model but things are about to get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik soon learns of his father’s guts and grit as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures – from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals – to put things right.

Mumble’s son, Erik, is battling to realize his talents in the Emperor Penguin world. Meanwhile, Mumble and his family and friends discover a new threat their home – one that will take everyone working together to save them.

Other than Robin Williams the film also features the voices of Elijah Wood, Hank Azaria, Alecia Moore (P!nk), Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Sofia Vergara, Common, Hugo Weaving, Richard Carter, Magda Szubanski, Anthony LaPaglia and Benjamin “Lil P-Nut” Flores Jr. We think Williams genius saves this film from being pretty average – keeping in mind we know how awesome Williams and Miller can be when they are at their best.

Robin Williams told Music News Australia on the difference between voice acting and traditional acting: "It feels free". On feelings about media and the style of movie "Well, it’s very different from One Hour Photo", which got a great reaction from the press pack – especially the snappers.

Australian producer, director and writer George Miller said of the film when asked about creative and financial success: "It was so rewarding. The film should do really well and its in 3D this time also". When complimented on his one of one interviews with today’s press and asked about if he would even be open to a Foxtel – StudioTV ‘Dinner With Five’ concept where producers, directors and actors all sit down for dinner and discuss the business, taped for television he said "I haven’t actually seen that but it sounds interesting". Further quizzed Miller said: "I guess I would be open to that".

Miller said getting so many big names on board was "a great privilege and very humbling".

The Mad Max director said he already had the story for Happy Feet Two in his mind before they had finished the first one and it was an easy decision to jump straight into the sequel.

"When you work on a film like Happy Feet, the characters become part of you, they’re like imaginary friends in your head, they’re like family," he said.

"And it’s such a rich world to work in, it was very,very easy to get into it."

The buzz and excitement for Williams was so much today that almost a dozen TV media asked Williams for autographs, and he happily obliged, so we joined in the fun two. Yes, media are also fans (not just critics).

Some of the best reviews like the one done by Richard Corliss reads"….Miller is not content to duplicate the pleasures of his first penguin film; he dares to go bigger, deeper, higher — happier."

Don’t forget it’s 3D, so if you have a foot fetish or whatever, you’re in for a wonderful treat. Love the close ups of beaks too.

Round up the kids of all ages and step on down to Happy Feet Two. 4.5 out of of 5 paws (because we’re huge Robin Williams and George Miller fans). Well organised from our friends at Village Roadshow too.

Director: George Miller
Writers: George Miller, Gary Eck,
Stars: Elijah Wood, Robin Williams and Pink
