‘Baywatch’: Dwayne Johnson Reveals First Look at His Squad

     March 30, 2016


The squad’s all here in the latest look at the Baywatch movie reboot. Dwayne Johnson, who takes over David Hasselhoff’s role of Mitch Bucchanon, has been keeping fans up to date on all the latest happenings from the film’s set, and the new look revealed show’s the entire lifeguard team ready to defend their beach — and maybe get a killer tan in the process.

Johnson’s San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario plays Summer, while model-turned-actress Kelly Rohrbach takes Pamela Anderson’s former role of C.J. Parker, Zac Efron plays a young hothead named Matt Brody, and Billions actress Ilfenesh Hadera as Mitch’s love interest, Stephanie Holden. Also accompanied by actor Jon Bass, all six (including Johnson) take center stage in this first look image.

“Our entire [Baywatch] squad,” Johnson wrote in the caption. “Are we bad ass? Yes. Do we save lives? All day. Are we a dysfunctional family? Epically. Do we have fun? F*CK YES. We work hard, we play hard.” See them below.


Directed by Seth Gordon of Horrible Bosses, Baywatch tells of a by-the-books lifeguard (Johnson) who has to team up with Efron’s Matt in order to stop an oil tychoon from destroying their beach. Quantico star Priyanka Chopra plays the villain, while the cast also includes Jack Kesy (The Strain) and Amin Joseph (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in unspecified roles, and Hasselhoff definitely makes an appearance in his signature red trunks. Johnson previously teased the hard R rating of the film on Twitter, writing, “some good ol’ fashion ‘this is my beach bitch” RATED R humor.” He also teased an ad-libbed scene in which Mitch instructs Matt in the ways of having “manly ‘Alpha balls,’” and he said Efron’s performance was “brilliant.” Baywatch will hit theaters on May 19, 2017.
