‘Baywatch’ Adds Model Kelly Rohrbach

Paramount Pictures has cast model Kelly Rohrbach to play C.J. Parker, the role originated by Pamela Anderson, in the big-screen remake of “Baywatch.”

She joins Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario in the action-comedy from “Horrible Bosses” director Seth Gordon. Johnson posted a video on Instagram this morning of the two of them running in slow motion on the beach.

Rohrbach has a handful of television credits on her resume, but as Variety notes, “Baywatch” would be her biggest role to date.

Featuring a tone compared to “21 Jump Street,” the film is believed to center on a by-the-book lifeguard (Johnson) who’s forced to team with a rule-breaking hothead (Efron) to save their beach from an oil tycoon.

Airing from 1989 to 2001, first on NBC and then in syndication, “Baywatch” was a starring vehicle for David Hasselhoff, and propelled the careers of Anderson, Nicole Eggert, David Chokachi, Yasmine Bleeth and Jason Momoa, among others.
