David Hasselhoff is expected to once again hit the beach.

The 63-year-old actor will be making an appearance in the upcoming Baywatch movie, and his co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirmed the news in a FaceTime call he shared on Instagram.

“‘I WAS BORN READY!’ Pleasure to officially welcome the original #BAYWATCH gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie!,” Johnson, 43, captioned the video. “#BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, ‘The Hoff’ has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS and ANCHORMAN.”

In the video Hasselhoff,  is on video chat with Johnson, who is on a beach, as he asked if the world is ready for the both of them together, adding “There ain’t no bay without the Hoff.'”

His caption continues, “Hoff’s a cool dude who’s down to have fun and here’s the best part. He’s been training his *** off and gotten in the best shape he’s been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f— am I even thinking about Hoff’s chest hair!?) World get ready.. #Rockand Hoff #ThereAintNoBAy #WithoutTheHoff.”

While there was no information on what capacity Hasselhoff would be involved in the film, he was a series regular in the original television show that ran from 1989 to 2001, with the actor appearing in every season.

The film, also starring Zac Efron and Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra, is expected to hit theatres in May of next year.
