Bill Hader is NOT Doing the BAYWATCH Movie

Earlier today, The Wrap reported Bill Hader was going to star in Paramount’s Baywatch movie that’s being directed by Reno 911! co-creator and star Robert Ben Garant.  They said he would be playing the role David Hasselhoff played on the long running TV series.  However, when I reached out to confirm the story, Hader’s rep (who also reps Garant)  told me it wasn’t true and the script isn’t even finished yet.  According to The Wrap, the Baywatch movie will “follow lifeguards exploring an oil rig of the Malibu coast that turns out to be a meth lab. Jeremy Garelick and Peter Tolan both wrote drafts of the script, which Garant has revisited.”

I’m a huge Bill Hader fan and would love to see him take the lead in a big Hollywood movie.  However, I’m not convinced this is the right project.  More as we hear it.
