David Hasselhoff is back in the zone, but if his career dips his fans will help him through.

The American actor has been a regular on the showbiz circuit since the 80s, experiencing a lot of peaks and troughs over the years.

David feels like he is back in the game right now, and is fully focused on the latest stage of his career.

"I can't explain it [what's changed]. All I can say is it's down to hard work. It's like playing tennis - look at Andy Murray, why did he suddenly win Wimbledon? Because he's practised and was in the zone and it happened to be his time - that's what's happening with me," David told British newspaper Metro.

"I'm playing with the big boys again for a change and we'll see what happens. If it lasts it lasts, if it doesn't I'll continue to work - I've got a great relationship with my fans."

David's new show Hoff the Record starts this week on British TV and in the star's own words is a glorified version of who the Hoff is. In it he pokes fun of the media figure he's become, as well as being able to sound off about all the odd things that really happen to him.

The 62-year-old is also doing a musical called Last Night a DJ Saved My Life.

"I can't sleep at night because so much weird stuff is happening at the same time. You're only as good as when the phone rings and for many years it wasn't ringing apart from journalists phoning to ask inappropriate things about my personal life instead of my career," he admitted.
