Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Baywatch’ Movie Casts Model Kelly Rohrbach in Pamela Anderson’s Iconic Role
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in a comedic Baywatch revival movie? We’re already sold, but some fans have probably been eager to see who would be filling Pamela Anderson’s iconic red swimsuit in the role of lifeguard C.J. Parker. You can chill, as Johnson himself has officially announced model Kelly Rohrbach as the latest member of the Baywatch cast.
Johnson made the casting announcement via a series of videos on Instagram, joking that he really tested Rohrbach’s abilities to ensure they made the best casting choice. You can see her below running in sexy slo-mo, getting knocked into the sand by Johnson, and generally proving that she not only looks the part, but that she’s smart, funny and can hang tough on the beach.
The model / actress joins Johnson, Efron and Alexandra Daddario in the new Baywatch film, which seems to be taking a page from the 21 Jump Street playbook with a contemporary comedic update on the classic TV series from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon — who says he’s aiming for an R-rating, in case you were curious / hopeful.
