  • Kelly Rohrbach of Sports Illustrated gets a special welcome by The Rock on Baywatch.

Any girl would be flattered to be on The Rock’s Instagram page and not only in a picture, but a video. Sports Illustrated model Kelly Rohrbach already has that honor. The Rock, who has been confirmed as a lead on the upcoming Seth Rogen’s remake of the hit 90’s show, Baywatch. 

The young model Kelly is seen in the video in the iconic red regalia as she runs alongside The Rock looking sexy. The video plays in slow motion with mellow music playing in the back.

It looks pretty cool right until at the middle of the video when The Rock pushes the skinny, young blonde to the side. She is shown to fall on her hands as the soundtrack changes to Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ and The Rock flashes a smile at the camera before running in slow motion out of the screen.

He captioned the video writing, :For our #BAYWATCH and the iconic role of "CJ Parker" I had to make sure @kellyrohrbach was... tough".

So we know that it was all a test for Kelly and she has been cast in the role of CJ Parker which was played by Pamela Anderson in the TV show. 

Kelly definitely has some big shoes to fill so The Rock’s actions might be justified somewhat. 

Rohrbach has some screen experience. She has previously appeared on television in series like Two and a Half Men and Rizzoli & Isles. Compared to her co-stars in the movie though, she is the least experienced and the youngest.

The movie has confirmed The Rock, Zac Effron and Alexandra Diddario as the other leads characters in the movie. The movie is said to be a comic take on the show and will begin production next year. For Rohrbach, it is a big opportunity as Baywatch, which is set for release in 2017, will be her first major film appearance.
