Actor, model and PETA spokesperson Pamela Anderson has finally come back to the mothership - Baywatch - and the cast of the film could not be more excited. The gorgeous 48-year-old mom who achieved cult status post her role in the TV series of the same name joins Dwayne Johnson - The Rock, former High School Musical star Zac Efron and our very own Priyanka Chopra in the much awaited film that centres around life guards.
So excited was The Rock, that he immediately took to Instagram and announced the happy news to his 49.5 million followers. The world has been getting peeks into the film, and the cast and crew thanks to Dwyane's faith chronicles.
Writing about Pam's decision to join the film's cast, he wrote: "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. A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our Baywatch cast. We couldn't have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us! #PamAnderson #OS #OriginalSmokestack

Original smoke stack is right, sir. The lady still looks like a million bucks after all. However, Pam isn't playing CJ Parker in the film, that honour's gone to model-actress Kelly Rohrbach. Directed by Seth Gordon, the film is about a group of (very good looking lifeguards who join forces with an ex-Olympian (the dreamy Zac Efron) to save their territory from a notorious villain, Victoria Leeds (PC).
The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, David Hasselhoff, and Ilfenesh Hadera. The film releases on May 19, 2017 in the US.

Every great story starts with a great villain... My sistah @priyankachopra is one of the biggest and most beloved stars in the world. When I asked her how she felt about playing opposite me as our main #BAYWATCH villain she simply said with a sly and seductively evil smile, "Oh you're going down..." Cool is the rule, but sometimes bad is bad. Thank you PC for the strong work week and see you on the rebound in GA. #GoodLordIGotMyHandsFull #ChopraDontPlay #BAYWATCH SUMMER 2017.
Boys of #BAYWATCH are some bad ass dudes. We have a lot of cool things in our movie. Rated R comedy, hard core action, beautiful ass kicking women, the unforgiving and majestic ocean, Zac's 17 pack abs, and most important our #1 secret weapon... @thejonbass. Underneath this layer of oiled up sex god is an extremely talented dude, 100% comfortable in his own skin and truthfully, Jon Bass just may wind up being my absolute favorite part of our movie. We are the boys of #BAYWATCH. And we are some bad muthaf*ckas. #Zacs17PackAbs #JonsBadAssery #AndMyAbilityToBounceCantaloupesOffMyPecs #BAYWATCH MAY 19th, 2017.

In the 80's he drove the coolest car on the planet. In the 90's he dominated slo-mo running on the beach with the most successful TV show of all time. And today he's simply Still the f'n man. Phenomenal day on set with my brotha - the OG himself @DavidHasselhoff - the man who started it all. Great dude with a great sense of humor. AND he trained his ass off for our movie.💪🏾 #RockAndHoff #OnSet #RetroCool #AndSomeTattooedBaldMan #BAYWATCH MAY 2017.
