The 59-year-old said he will not be reprising his role as lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the big-screen version of the hit TV show, reported Contactmusic. "I've just met the guy writing the film. I'm going to play myself.
There will be certain people in the movie for the original parts and we're trying to make it a very cool, updated version," he said. The former 'America's Got Talent' judge is the only cast member certain to star in the movie.
It is also rumored to have singers Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber. Pamela Anderson, who played long-running character CJ Lewis in the 90s series, is yet to be confirmed. "I don't know about Pamela. All I know is that they've had the script for four years now."
