Well now we have another reason to look forward to the R-Rated beach comedy as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just confirmed an original cast member from the show who will be showing up — David Hasselhoff!
The Rock took to Instagram to share a video of himself chatting with the Hoff saying:
“I WAS BORN READY!” Pleasure to officially welcome the original #BAYWATCH gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie! #BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, “The Hoff” has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN….🌊🖕🏾Hoff’s a cool dude who’s down to have fun and here’s the best part.. He’s been training his ass off and gotten in the best shape he’s been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f*ck am I even thinking about Hoff’s chest hair!?) World get ready.. #RockAndHoff #ThereAintNoBay #WithoutTheHoff 💯👊🏾A video posted by therock (@therock) on Mar 2, 2016 at 6:45pm PST
With Efron, Johnson, Hoff, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, and Priyanka Chopra all signed on, we’re looking at a really HOTTT cast!
Are you as pumped for Baywatch as we are?!
