Amongst the many incredible characters Pamela Anderson has given us, her most-beloved is probably still Baywatch hottie CJ Parker. That made it all the more disappointing when Pam wasn’t immediately on board with the feature-length adaptation of the popular lifeguarding show, claiming that she was flattered to be asked, but wasn’t all that interested in appearing in the film.
“I haven’t turned it down completely yet. But I have turned down what they offered me,” she said at the time, adding that “it’s an honor to have them to want me to be a part of it so bad.”
But fans of Parker’s beachside exploits can celebrate, as today Dwayne Johnson, the Rock himself, posted a photo of the pair together on set and confirmed that Anderson will have some kind of an appearance in the finished film when it bows next May.
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! #BAYWATCH MAY 19, 2017. #PamAnderson #OS #OriginalSmokestack
It should come as no surprise that a future Presidential candidate who saves precious puppies in his free time would also go out of his way to secure a cameo appearance from one of the show’s original stars, but it’s nice to get confirmation that this new remake will be paying dues to its source material.
