Dwayne Johnson is keeping the updates from the Baywatch set coming as he shared a photo of himself as “Mitch Buchannon” and Kelly Rohrbach as “CJ Parker.” Johnson said: The two most iconic #BAYWATCH characters of all time. “Mitch Buchannon” and “CJ Parker”. Embodied by the dope and talented @kellyrohrbach and some big, brown inked up bald dude who keeps showing up in these epic shots.
The original Baywatch cast included David Hasselhoff as Mitch Buchannon, Parker Stevenson, Shawn Weatherly, Billy Warlock, Erika Eleniak, Peter Phelps, Brandon Call and Holly Gagnier. The series was initially not a success and was cancelled after a single season. Plans were made, however, to move Baywatch into first-run syndication and, in 1991, Baywatch returned to the airwaves where it continued for a full decade, bringing in new cast members like Yasmine Bleeth and Pamela Anderson in the CJ Parker role. The show also received a short-lived spinoff, Baywatch Hawaii.
