According to Daily Star, producers have been eyeing up Kelly as a possible replacement for Pamela Anderson's character CJ Parker.
A source said: "Kelly is one of the shortlisters. It's no surprise. She has an almost identical body to a young Pam, looks sensational in a bikini, and is a strong actress."
Inspired by the iconic TV show starring Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, the reinvented Baywatch will likely star Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron and be rather different from the daytime show we all know and loved…
Zac recently told Reuters: "It's going to be R-rated and it's going to be badass. I think we're going like pretty big with it and I don't think it's going to be much like the old 'Baywatch' to be honest. I think we're going to kind of reinvent it in a big way, and [Dwayne] has big plans for it. I know he's very ambitious."
Kelly's most recent acting role was in the US sitcom One Big Happy. Produced by Ellen DeGeneres and co-starring Elisha Cuthbert, the comedy series was about a man and wife and the man's best friend, who is a lesbian.
It was cancelled after one season.
Meanwhile, one person not that happy about the Baywatch reboot is Pamela Anderson herself, who told TMZ: "No one appreciates the remakes."
