Dwayne Johnson Announces Kelly Rohrbach Cast In Pamela Anderson's Role In Baywatch Movie


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who is starring as Mitch Buchannon in the upcoming Baywatch movie, has finally revealed that Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Kelly Rohrbach, has landed the coveted role of 'C.J. Parker.' That's the role Pamela Anderson (Barb Wire) made famous on the popular television series, which ran from 1989 to 1999.

"A pleasure welcoming Kelly Rohrbach to our Baywatch family for the iconic role of 'CJ Parker,'" Johnson announced on Instagram. "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...."

Rohrbach, 25, isn't just a model. She's made appearances on CBS' Two and a Half Men, NBC's The New Normal, TNT's Rizzoli and Isles and USA's Rush. However, she is most well-known for dating Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio, though, they reportedly split up a month ago.

Check out The Rock's announcment video below, as well as two additional videos that show off both of their humorous sides. Rohrbach even imitates Pamela Anderson's slow-motion beach running.

For our #BAYWATCH and the iconic role of "CJ Parker" I had to make sure @kellyrohrbach was... tough.
