(CBS) Look out, Britain. The Hoff and his leather jacket are looking to jump across the pond.

Former "Baywatch" hunk and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant David Hasselhoff is "in talks" to replaces Simon Cowell as a judge on "Britain's Got Talent," a publicist for the actor told Entertainment Weekly.

Maybe he's looking to be in a country where not everyone's heard of the infamous cheeseburger video.

The deal is not finalized yet, because according to Entertainment Weekly, Hasselhoff's publicist says there are "scheduling problems" that need to be resolved before an agreement is reached.

This would be the newest move for Hasselhoff, who left "America's Got Talent" to pursue his own reality show, "The Hasselhoffs" which premiered Sunday night on A&E to positive reviews.

The addition of Hasselhoff wouldn't be the only shakeup of the judges' panel for the UK show. Piers Morgan will also be leaving  to take Larry King's seat at CNN.
