While some of the same character roles are in the TV series and the movie, the actors are much different.

In the TV series, the role of Matt Brody is played by David Charvet, but in the movie, is played by Zac Efron.

  1. I don’t want to date myself, but I was a huge fan of the TV series back in the day. 🙂 I think Dwayne Johnson will be excellent playing the role of Mitch. I didn’t realize how many wrestlers had actually played on the Baywatch TV series. This will be a great movie to watch when it comes out.

  3. Such a small world. It’s not to see all the connections. Honestly, I never thought much of the TV show, but the movie seems like it might be worthwhile! Thanks so much for sharing this trivia!

  4. I cannot wait. Dwayne Johnson aka The Roc can do no wrong in my eyes:-) I actually really super into the original show, pretty much only catching it on reruns but I definitely plan on seeing this in the theater! Thanks for the reminder about this!

  5. This is awesome information about Bay Watch the show and Bay Watch the Movie. I didn’t even know there was a Bay Watch movie but since Dwayne is in it I will have to watch it for sure. I loved him as an actor and a wrestler. When I was a kid I remember watching Bay Watch. Thanks for sharing the information.

  6. It is so hard to take The Rock seriously in this role but he does fit. This will be a fun movie night flick to watch
