The Daily Heat Index: The Original CJ Parker Returns as Pamela Anderson Boards the ‘Baywatch’ Movie
Plus, Robert Downey Jr. suits up for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ and we take a look at the NSFW trailer for ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.’
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Pam Anderson Returns to Baywatch
Queue the slo-mo — Pam Anderson is back on the beach.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson took to Instagram to announce that the iconic Baywatch star has officially joined the baby-faced cast of 2017’s Baywatch on-screen adaptation. “She introduced the world to ‘CJ Parker’ and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation — for the most successful TV show of all time,” the caption reads. “A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast. We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!”
No word as to the capacity of Anderson’s role, as her TV character CJ Parker has been given new life by model Kelly Rohrbach, but fingers crossed that involves something with a little red in it.
Baywatch swims into theaters May 19th, 2017.
A Superhero For a Superhero
Iron Man may be suiting up with the Avengers’ web-slinging new addition faster than we thought. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Downey Jr. is set to reprise his role as Iron Man alongside Tom Holland in the Sony reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming out July 7th, 2017. There’s no solid detail regarding his involvement, but one can assume that the events of Civil War will trigger a serious bonding experience between Tony Stark and Peter Parker. Downey Jr. joins Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, and unfortunately, not Michael Keaton, who recently dropped out of the running for Spider-Man‘s main villain.
Mike and Dave Are NSFW
The first trailer for Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates seems like child’s play compared to this NSFW treat we’ve been given. As two rambunctious brothers (Zac Efron and Adam Devine) are tasked with obtaining suitable ladies to accompany them to their sister’s wedding, they manage to wrangle up raunchy, havoc-causing Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, who of course, are only in it for the free Hawaii trip. Watch everything go horribly wrong in the the latest NSFW footage for Mike and Dave, and prepare for more problems when the film his theaters on July 8th.
