Bill Hader might star in the Baywatch movie

Bill Hader is reportedly set to star in the upcoming Baywatch movie, which kind of makes the man behind Stefon this generation’s David Hasselhoff, right?


The Saturday Night Live veteran has long needed a big screen vehicle to show off his talents, though him being linked to this role in particular is a curious one.

That the film will be directed by Reno 9/11’s Robert Ben Garant suggests this might be more in the vein of the recent 21 Jump Street film adaptation.

Hader’s reps were quick to deny any involvement, stating that the script for the picture is not even completed.

But Garant told The Wrap at Sundance that Paramount is “so excited they made us shoot a trailer and the script isn’t even done,” so there’s a chance the cast is being pulled together at this early stage.

The movie will follow some lifeguards who investigate an oil rig fire, only to inadvertently uncover a meth lab on the Malibu coast.

More news as it develops.
