Justin Bieber tipped for Baywatch role

2012-07-02 14:19
Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has been tipped for a leading role in the Baywatch  film.

There are plans to turn the iconic TV show into a feature film and Jeremy Jackson, who played Hobie Bunchannon, the son of David Hasselhoff's head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the original, thinks the Boyfriend  hitmaker would be the perfect person to take on the role.

Jeremy told he is delighted a movie is being planned and would happily give Justin some tips on how to portray Hobie if he lets him drive his Batman-themed Cadillac CTS-V on weekends.

Keen to sign Timberlake

It was previously revealed that producers of the Paramount motion picture are keen to sign Justin Timberlake to play one of the lead roles in the project.

Should Justin agree a deal to star in the movie - which Ivan Reitman, Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are all working on - then he will take on the role of a disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch team of lifeguards.

The TV drama series follows the lives of a group of fictional Los Angeles County Lifeguards - who were played by Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson (CJ Parker) and Carmen Electra (Lani McKenzie) - who patrol beaches in Los Angeles County, California.

The writers have already stated that the script will include roles for David and Pamela should they want to appear in the motion picture.

Baywatch originally ran on US TV network NBC from 1989 to 1990 and it was syndicated thereafter from 1991 to 2001, changing its name to Baywatch: Hawaii from 1999-2001 after a large cast overhaul.
