One of the most successful TV series of all time, Baywatch, is back! This time on the big screen. The film will start rolling across the globe in mid-2017.
If you were around in the 90’s; the familiar ring Baywatch’s piano-driven theme song would send guys running to catch a glimpse of Pam Anderson in her signature red swimsuit. The story was simple – the adventures of a team of lifeguards and their interpersonal relationships, with plots usually centering on dangers related to the beach and other activities pertaining to California beach lifestyle.
The show was a phenomenal success the combination of attractive guys and girls in swimwear with action-driven story lines made stars out of David Hasselhoff (to be fair – he was already famous for the 1980’s show Knight Rider) and Pamela Anderson. Other stalwarts included David Chokachi and Yasmine Bleeth.
The new cast is set to star Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson as Mitch Buchannon (originally played by Hasselhoff). Mmm…we wonder if The Rock will be sticking on some chest hair for the part. Also; the role of C.J. Parker (originally played by Pam Anderson) will be played by the gorgeous, if somewhat unknown Kelly Rorbach and it stars everybody’s heartthrob – Zac Efron as well.
We found these few images of the original cast members and recent ones of the new stars – we wonder if they will do the original show justice on the big screen. Only time will tell. In the meantime – do you prefer the original cast or the new line-up of stars?
