Red bathing suits at the ready! As Baywatch gets set for the big screen we get all nostalgic
According to the Guinness Book of World Records it’s the most watched TV programme of all time with over 1.1 billion viewers. Now Baywatch is BACK…and heading to a cinema near you.
Although it’s unsure which actors will return, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, 42, is rumoured to be taking on the starring role as a hunky lifeguard captain. And it’s gong to be a tongue-in-cheek comedy! We kind of thought it already was, right?
So what are the stars from the original 90s show doing now? We take a nostalgic look back at our favourite stars from the show…
Played: Mitch Buchannon
Fans of the
show have David Hasselhoff, 62, to thank because if it wasn’t for him, it wouldn’t have lasted more than one season.
David paid money from his own pocket to revive the show after it was panned because he believed in it. Nowadays he’s still acting, has been a judge on America’s Got Talent and was recently spotted hanging out with Justin Bieber!
His music career is doing OK too – well he is HUGE in Germany! TV channel Dave has produced Hoff the Record, a sitcom series with David playing a fictionalised version of himself – due out next year.
Played: CJ Parker
Former Playgirl Playmate Pamela Anderson, 47, has done it all since appearing in that famous red swimsuit – she’s been an author, appeared on Aussie Big Brother, dabbled in a
lot of acting, been married multiple times, had a sex tape and done charity
work for PETA. Phew. And who can forget her super short stint on Dancing On Ice!
Played: Cody Madison
Voted one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 1997, David continued to act after Baywatch and popped up in Sabrina, The Teenage Witch after leaving the beach. David didn’t reach huge highs after Baywatch though and appeared in Confessions of a Teen Idol, a show for former teen idols to revitalise his career in 2009.
Played: Matt Brody
This drop dead gorgeous Frenchman went from Baywatch to Melrose Place where he played Craig Field and then became a singer. The 42-year-old released three albums although none of them charted over here!
Played: Hobie Buchanan
Remember the little kid Hobie? Well he was cute then and he is cute now. Jeremy Jackson, who played Hobie Buchanan from 1991-1999, has turned into quite the strapping chap and now has a drop dead gorgeous beach body – complete with Blue Steel pout – so he’d be perfect for a comeback on the show. The 33-year-old appeared on Celebrity Rehab after being addicted to steroids.
