“The female roles of #BAYWATCH have become extremely hot properties around Hollywood, and as promised, the quality women we’ll cast are stepping into these roles to have fun and make them iconic for the world to enjoy.
“The #BaywatchFamily so far consists of a tatted-up bald guy named Rock, the cool, yet extremely unattractive Zac Efron, the talented and gorgeous Alexandra Daddario…and some big casting announcements coming soon. And juuuuust wait til you guys see who we cast for the iconic role of ‘CJ Parker’…”
CJ Parker is the bombshell lifeguard made iconic by Pamela Anderson in the 1990s syndicated Baywatch. The inclusion of CJ is fascinating, considering that Anderson has bad-mouthed the big-screen version of Baywatch in recent months.
