Pamela Anderson is practically synonymous with Baywatch, but Kelly Rohrbach will put her own spin on the slo-mo running C.J. Parker. Dwayne Johnson shared a new photo featuring the model-turned-actress in costume from the set of the upcoming film reboot.
“The two most iconic #BAYWATCH characters of all time. ‘Mitch Buchannon’ and ‘CJ Parker,'” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “Embodied by the dope and talented [Kelly Rohrbach] and some big, brown inked up bald dude who keeps showing up in these epic shots.”

Johnson stands beside Rohrbach as Mitch, a by-the-books lifeguard who must team up with the young hot head Matt Brody (Zac Efron) in order to save their beach from an oil tycoon. Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) plays the main villain, Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas) plays Summer, and Ilfenesh Hadera (Billions) plays Mitch’s love interest, Stephanie Holden.
Original Baywatch star David Hasseloff was also announced for a role in the reboot. “There ain’t no Bay without the Hoff,” Johnson said in a FaceTime clip announcing the casting.
Since the start of production, Johnson has been sharing behind-the-scenes looks from Baywatch, which he described “will be big, fun, and rated R.”
Baywatch is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 19, 2017.
