Kelly Rohrbach

The Baywatch reboot watch has begun! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson took to Instagram today to introduce us to the woman who will fill Pamela Anderson's red bathing suit in the upcoming film version of the classic show. So what do we know about this new "CJ" -- aka Kelly Rohrbach -- aka Leonardo DiCaprio's recent ex-girlfriend?

"A pleasure welcoming @kellyrohrbach to our #BAYWATCH family for the iconic role of 'CJ Parker,'" Johnson wrote on his Insta post. "Yes, she's a walking smoke stack but more importantly... she's smart, tough and funny. Just the way we like 'em."

Luckily, this walking smokestack can run in slo-mo:

But there's more to Kelly than the fact that she dated Leonardo DiCaprio and looks great in a red bathing suit. For example...

1. She looks great in blue bathing suits!

Ha. We kid, we kid. Well, actually, we don't kid -- she does. In 2015, she was named Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Rookie of the Year. Previous nominees include Chrissy Teigen, Nina Agdal, and Kate Upton.

2. Bathing suits aside, she's got some serious creds.

For starters: Kelly holds a degree in Theater and Performance Studies from Georgetown University, where she was recruited to play Division One Women’s golf. Whoa.

3. She also attended the super prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.

4. She's been in several TV shows, like Two and a Half Men and The New Normal. We'll also get to see her in an as-yet-untitled Woody Allen project this year, along with Blake Lively, Kristin Stewart, and Steve Carell.

5. She's one of five kids, and calls her big family the Brady Bunch. They are pretty darn cute.
