FIRST LOOK: DWAYNE THE ROCK JOHNSON IN BAYWATCH: THE MOVIE

HOLLYWOOD – As San Andreas hits the screens, the Studio Exec can proudly release this EXCLUSIVE first look at Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the new reboot Baywatch: the Movie.

Very little is known about the movie except that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson plays CJ Parker, a young lifeguard who patrols the beaches of Los Angeles with a little red board on a string attached to the ankle.

‘The Rock’ Johnson spoke exclusively to the Studio Exec:

The thing is I’ve wanted to expand my range as an actor for quite a bit. I’m always this very masculine action guy, you know the Rock! Well, CJ gives me the opportunity to explore another side of my nature, a softer more sensitive side which I hope will also show audiences that there’s more to the Rock than testosterone. And I look great in red.

Justin Malen is on board to rewrite the ‘script’ and We’re the Millers team Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan are rumored to be directing.

Johnson (the Rock) continued:

I’ve had to do a lot of preparation,especially yoga and Pilates. But it’s going to be worth it when you see the film. Baywatch is going to be funny and self-aware and edgy, but it is also going to be sexy and kinky and sexy and occasionally brutally violent. Imagine 21 Jump Street but on a beach. No, I’m serious… imagine that! Are you imagining it? Okay? Now take Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill away. Right? Now add me. But with long blond hair. There you go. Now you see it.

It is understood that the David Hasselhoff role of Mitch Buchanon hasn’t been cast yet but both Ann Hathaway and Kirsten Dunst have expressed an interest.

Baywatch will be released in 2015.

ANTHONY HOPKINS WRITES A LETTER TO PAMELA ANDERSON!

MALIBU – It is now becoming apparent that Sir Anthony Hopkins‘ wonderful fan letter to Bryan Cranston and the Breaking Bad cast was simply the latest in a long series of fan mail which the Hopster has sent down the years.

We have already published those to Lee Majors and Mr. T. Now comes a letter written to the busty Baywatch star  Pamela Anderson in 1998.  

Dear Miss Anderson.
I wanted to write you this letter – so I am contacting you through Yasmin Bleeth – isn’t she a great gal?
I’ve just finished  watching “BAYWATCH” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last  episodes of the Sixth Season [There were actually only 5 seasons – the EXEC]. I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as C.J. Parker was the best acting I have seen – ever.
I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really. But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers, the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (a word I will only use this once) awesome.
From what started as a light comedy about a lifeguard, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction, country music and big hair. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – except David Hasselhoff – I’m writing him a separate letter – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.
That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It’s almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Best regards
Tony Hopkins.
