Kelly Rohrbach Lands Pamela Anderson's Role in Baywatch Movie

That's a big bathing suit to fill

Kelly Rohrbach is the lucky woman who will fill Pamela Anderson's iconic bathing suit in the Baywatch movie.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announced that the 25-year-old model had gotten the part via Instagram with his seal of approval Monday.

"Yes, she's a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em. Get ready world, we can't wait to bring you our generation's #BAYWATCH! You'll have fun... ," he wrote.

Rohrbach -- who's modeled for Vogue Germany and Sports Illustrated, and whose split from Leonardo DiCaprio was also confirmed Monday -- also passed Johnson's slo-mo running test, an essential skill for anyone hoping to run in CJ Parker's footsteps.

Rohrbach joins Johnson and fellow beautiful people Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario in the remake set to start production early this year.
