As confirmed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on his Instagram account one of the original “Baywatch” stars David Hasselhoff will reprise his role in the new remake film.

Hasselhoff now joins a cast that includes Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, and Alexandria Daddario.

The rock also took to facebook to announce the news 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”

The new “Baywatch” movie is expected to hit theaters may 19th, 2017.
