'Baywatch' reboot will feature Hader rather than Hoff



baywatch.jpgSorry, David Hasselhoff, but you're too old to go running into oceans anymore. That's why Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader will star in Paramount’s reboot of Baywatch, the unintentionally campy TV hit that began in the late '80s.

But yes, the film will include cameos from Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, according to The Wrap.

Hader, who even looks uncannily like the Hoff, is all set to take over the role as the head lifeguard on the SoCal beach scene. The movie's plot, according to The Wrap, follows lifeguards who discover that an oil rig off the Malibu coast is actually a meth lab. And the hilarity ensues from there.

Filming is set to begin this spring.
