The Rock teams up with Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario to be the heroes of a new generation of lifeguards in “Baywatch.” Cue the slow motion beach running montage.
Along with an all-star cast lead by Dwayne Johnson, series originals and fan favorites, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will be making a cameo in the reboot. Originally Anderson wasn’t on board with the idea to appear in the reboot but eventually she came around and The Rock welcomed her with open arms.
“She introduced the world to ‘CJ Parker’ and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation – for the most successful TV show of all time,” wrote Johnson. “A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our Baywatch cast. We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!”
Baywatch follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron). Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
