Everyone’s favorite Hollywood renaissance man Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is co-producing and starring in the 2017 film reboot of 90’s television phenomenon Baywatch. Now we all know that the Rock is the obvious choice to anchor a film that requires over-the-top sexiness and intentional cheese, something that he has mastered over the years since honing his brand as a WWE megastar.
He is also a huge, jacked, beautiful man. So that doesn’t hurt.
You know what the best part is though? The Rock is also incredibly skilled at finding other stunningly attractive people to hang out with, and let’s just say he put in his best work to date when casting for Baywatch.
The Rock will play Mitch Buchanon, the male lead made famous in the original television show by the one and only David Hasselhoff. Supermodel Kelly Rohrbach fills Pamela Anderson’s swimsuit as blonde bombshell C.J. Parker, while Alexandra Daddario and Ifanesh Hadera step into the roles of Summer Quinn and Stephanie Holden. All the way to the right is Jon Bass, presumably serving as comedic relief in the role of “Ronnie.”
Then there’s Zac Efron, perhaps the most objectively attractive man on the planet, holding it down as rival beach stud Matt Brody; originally played by David Charvet. Be still the beating hearts of every red-blooded American.
The Rock/Efron combo was bound to happen, and any excuse to make them as naked as possible the entire time was an inevitability as well. But that doesn’t take away from the pure magic of it, as told through their very generous Instagram accounts. Behold scenes from the set of Baywatch, courtesy of the cast members, and bask in the glorious glow of beautiful men and gorgeous women rocking exceptional beachwear in what appear to be the greatest tans in cinematic history.
