Pamela Anderson says the movie is completely different from what the original series was about…
It’s crazy to think that something as classic and yet as cheesy as ‘Baywatch’ could still bring in an audience, but we would say that’s all about the casting. The new movie stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, basically the driving force of the movie. In case you didn’t know, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson will be in the movie as well. Can we say CAMEOS!
Anyways, Anderson opened up about the big differences between the new movie and the 90s series. Pamela Anderson noticed that this Baywatch is set way apart from the series.
Pamela had this to say about the Seth Gordon directed film, with a laugh:
“There’s a little bit of swearing, I hear, a little bit of nudity that would not have flown back in the day when we were doing ‘Baywatch. So I think it’s kind of like a spoof, maybe?”
“It’s really fun to come back as the Captain, and who knows what will happen after this?”
“They’ve been talking to me for a while about doing it so I really appreciate them bringing me here and it’s been fun. My son was in the movie too so it’s exciting. I actually left the ‘Baywatch’ series when I was pregnant with Brandon so that shows you that’s 19 years ago.”
David Hasselhoff is credited as The Mentor, with Dwayne Johnson taking over his original role of Mitch Buchannon.
‘Baywatch’ is scheduled for release in theaters on May 25th 2017.
