Baywatch Movie Casts Kelly Rohrbach in Pamela Anderson’s Role

The Baywatch Reboot

The Baywatch reboot has cast the model-turned-actress Kelly Rohrbach in the Pamela Anderson role of ‘C.J. Parker.’ No doubt this would mark Rohrbach’s biggest role to date.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who will star in the reboot as Mitch Buchannon, shared the casting news on Instagram, adding a funny twist to the show’s classic slow-motion beach running scenes.

It’s now obvious that the studio is taking a comedic route with the movie. Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario have also signed on for the film, which will be directed by Seth Gordon and based on a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. The plot reportedly centers around a young lifeguard (Efron) who doesn’t want to follow the rules of the force when he teams up with a veteran guard played by Johnson. Daddario landed the role of Summer (originally played by Nicole Eggert).

Baywatch will begin production by February 2016.
