Amer­i­can Os­car-win­ning ac­tor Leonardo DiCaprio (right) was to be orig­i­nally cast as David Has­sel­hoff's son in the orig­i­nal Bay­watch TV se­ries, as pro­duc­ers Michael Berk and Dou­glas Schwartz have re­vealed.

DiCaprio was just 15 years old when he au­di­tioned for the role, but Has­sel­hoff nixed the ac­tor for the part, reports hol­ly­woodreporter.com.

"We ac­tu­ally had DiCaprio ready to be cast," Berk said.

"But David thought he was too old to play his son. David thought it would make him look older. He had a lot of concerns of that type," Schwartz added.

The part even­tu­ally went to Bran­don Call in sea­son 1, who was re­placed by Jeremy Jack­son for eight sea­sons.
