Fourteen years after Jeremy Jackson left "Baywatch," we are back on Hobie Buchannon watch!

The 32-year-old actor who rose to fame in the '90s as Mitch Buchannon's beach bum son stepped back into the light this week while honeymooning in Maui with his new wife, Loni Willison (his college sweetheart). And boy has time been kind to him -- Jackson showed off his buff bod as he frolicked in the surf on Wednesday with his fitness model bride, who he reportedly wed last month.

The hunk of joy is a far cry from the mewling preteen we remember nipping at David Hasselhoff's heels in a role Jackson played from 1991 to 1999.

Since departing "Baywatch," the former child star has had a rough go of it. Back in 2011, he admitted to Access Hollywood Live that he fell into drugs, reportedly during his stint on the lifeguard mega hit, but claimed he he had been "clean and sober" since around 2000.

"It started with pot and cigarettes and drinking here and there, just like most kids do," he said. "But it eventually got to hard drugs like crystal meth and that definitely brought me to my knees."

One of his lowest points may have been when in 2008 some "drug addicted thugs" allegedly threatened to release a sex tape he made with porn star Sky Lopez. Three years later, Jackson joined "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" to kick his addiction to steroids.

"[I] thought, you know, I need to get my body great. This is going to help me, this is going to be a tool for me to get this adult looking great," he told Access. "I got pulled into it and it became all about diet and body image."

But this year Jackson appears to have turned over a new leaf. In addition to tying the knot, he is set to appear on screen a number of times in films including "Altered Reality," a movie about a bunch of friends working on reality TV shows, a coming-of-age drama called "Dreams" and "Runner," a thriller starring Donnie Wahlberg and Jason Mewes.
