Kelly Rohrbach is the new Pamela Anderson of the upcoming Baywatch film.

Rohrbach will play female lead C.J. Parker, the role made famous by Anderson in the '90s cult TV series.

The 25-year-old's co-star Dwayne The Rock Johnson celebrated the announcement by uploading a series of slow-motion running shots of the duo, reminiscent of the original show's iconic opener.


"Yes, she's a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em," Johnson captioned the videos.

"Get ready world, we can't wait to bring you our generations #BAYWATCH! You'll have fun."

Zac Efron and San Andreas actor Alexandra Daddario are also set to star in the reboot.
