KITTSite Covers Knight Rider @ Comic-Con '08: Bruce Davison!
One of the highest-profile actors signed for Knight Rider is Bruce Davison, who will be playing Charles Graiman on the series, reprising his role from the TV-movie.

We were able to talk to him for a brief interview at the Comic-Con International in San Diego. (Yep, we're STILL rolling those interviews out!)

BE WARNED OF [VERY MINOR] SPOILERS BELOW.

"I am supposedly the inventor of the original KITT, going way back into Knight Industries, and kind of know David's character Michael, which is how we make the connection and bring us up to speed here," Davison says to describe his character. "Michael and I are about the same age, and we're sort of the same era, so I guess it's funny to say, but I guess I'm sort of the elder statesman, carrying this into the new generation."

A veteran of many high-profile series, one might wonder what it was that made Knight Rider the right show to join as a series regular. "It just seemed fun, you know? I've been doing this for a long time, and suffered a lot with kids in comas and evil senators and stuff. It just seemed like a kick. It just seemed like it would be some fun to do, and I think people are really ready to enjoy themselves," Davison says.

Despite being aware of a great potential wave of fandom interested in Knight Rider, Davison admits that he does not read the Internet chatter. "I don't really follow it, because it's all speculation and blogs from people's head. I remember all of the stuff that came out of X-Men in the beginning, and it was like 'how dare you not use yellow spandex. How dare you make Wolverine not short and squat and from Canada, but a thin, tall guy from Australia! What do you think you're doing!' Things change. It's enjoyable to watch, but I'll wait until the dust settles," he says.

Knight Rider premieres September 24 on NBC.
