The Rock Welcomes Kelly Rohrbach to 'Baywatch'

The model has some big shoes to fill, so Dwayne Johnson put her to the test.

Dwayne Johnson was all over his social media accounts to announce a Baywatch development in the role that made Pamela Anderson a household name. C.J. Parker, one of the most central and popular characters in the series, has been cast.

“[Kelly Rohrbach] a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em,” Johnson says in one of his posts.

Pamela Anderson made the role famous by becoming one of the longest serving actresses on the show, spanning more than five years. Rohrbach probably won’t match Anderson in Baywatch longevity, but if her slow-mo training with The Rock is any gauge, she should get plenty of screen time.

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