Pamela Anderson joins Baywatch cast
Finally, Pamela Anderson has officially joined the movie remake of her hit U.S. television show Baywatch.
The 48-year-old actress played C.J. Parker in the series about lifeguards from 1992 to 1997. She had previously admitted she wasn't sure if she wanted to be involved in the film reboot but it finally she has changed her mind.
In the early hour of Friday Dwayne Johnson posted a picture of himself with Pamela on his Instagram page confirming her as a member of the cast.
"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," Dwayne, who is also producing the movie, wrote in the caption.
“A pleasure to welcome Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast. We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!"
It is unclear as yet what role Pamela will play in the film as model Kelly Rohrbach is taking on the part of C.J. for the reboot. In the snap with Dwayne, however, the actor is wearing his lifeguard ensemble as he plays Mitch Buchannon, the role made famous by David Hasselhoff, in the film - suggesting Pamela's outfit could be a hint to her on-screen character.
Pamela is seen showing off her ample cleavage in a white suit jacket over a plunging black vest top, with her blonde hair glamorously teased and coiffed.
Taking over the role of CJ Parker from Anderson is Kelly Rohrbach. Alexandra Daddario and Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra are other names set to star in the film that is scheduled to be released in the US on May 19, 2017.
The mother-of-two is the latest former cast member to join the movie adaptation - David will also feature in the film.
"Well, they called me and asked me to be in it, but I haven't decided yet," she explained to the American edition of Harper's Bazaar. "I don't know. I don't like remakes of TV shows and I kind of want to leave it as is and be remembered for that. I don't know if I wanna go on Baywatch and be like, the old lady working at a counter somewhere."
Pamela previously revealed her debate as to whether she should get involved with the new film project.
