Who is Kelly Rohrbach? Model Cast in Pamela Anderson’s Role in Baywatch Movie
Kelly Rohrbach has been named as the actress who will take over Pamela Anderson’s role in the 2017 movie remake of Baywatch, with her being cast to play the part of CJ Parker.
However, with the 25-year-old not exactly being a household name at the time of this writing, we thought we’d take a look at just who Kelly Rohrbach is, and why you should be pleased that she’s steadily rising up the Hollywood ranks.
Firstly, she has exceptional taste, as evidenced by her appearance at our relaunch party last year:

Her appearance in Baywatch was revealed to us by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who posted the following video to Instagram alongside the caption: “For our #BAYWATCH and the iconic role of “CJ Parker” I had to make sure @kellyrohrbach was ridiculously sexy running in SLO-MO….”:
Although Baywatch will see her playing her biggest role yet, she has starred in both films and TV shows in the past, including a minor role in Two and a Half Men, and a recurring role in comedy show The PET Squad Files in which she played a paranormal investigator.
Before the release of Baywatch, Rohrbach is set to star in an untitled Woody Allen movie in 2016 alongside the likes of Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell and Jesse Eisenberg.
She also has plenty of experience for her role as CJ, having previously appeared in Sports Illustrated as a featured rookie in their swimsuit issue. Despite this, she’s relatively new to the modelling game, having decided to try it out after making a few appearances in TV shows.
Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon has been placed at the helm of the Baywatch remake, with The Rock, Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario set to star alongside Rohrbach.
