Kelly Rohrbach to play Pamela Anderson's role in 'Baywatch' movie
Los Angeles: Model Kelly Rohrbach will play C.J. Parker -- a character Pamela Anderson made famous on the cult TV series 'Baywatch' -- in the movie reboot of the 1990s show.
Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron star in the film, which will be directed by Seth Gordon. 'San Andreas' actress Alexandra Daddario was recently tapped to play Summer, originally portrayed by Nicole Eggert.
The Rock posted a video on Instagram of him and Kelly Rohrbach adding a twist to the show's classic slow-motion running scenes, reports variety.com.
A pleasure welcoming @kellyrohrbach to our #BAYWATCH family for the iconic role of "CJ Parker". Yes, she's a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em. Get ready world, we can't wait to bring you our generation's #BAYWATCH! You'll have fun... ðð¾ð¥ð¯ðð (last emoji somewhat inappropriate).
Dwayne Johnson will also produce the film with his partner Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner.
This would mark Kelly Rohrbach's biggest role to date as she previously appeared in smaller indie films.
