‘Baywatch’ Photo Introduces Dwayne Johnson’s Squad
It’s not enough to inspire #SquadGoals, but at least the cast of Baywatch looks like they’re having a blast in the latest photo update from Dwayne Johnson. The actor shows off his new squad, and sure, this could be a photo from the Baywatch set — or it could be the centerfold in a Macy’s summer catalogue. Baywatch Squadgate 2016, you be the judge.
Johnson took to Instagram as usual to post another update from the set of Baywatch, this time with the full crew in tow, frolicking on the beach as the attractive protectors of fictional beaches are wont to do:
Pictured with Johnson above are the actor’s San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario, Zac Efron, comedian Jon Bass, model Kelly Rohrbach and Billions star Ilfenesh Hadera. Johnson plays the David Hasselhoff role of head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, with Efron as the rebellious newcomer Matt Brody, Rohrbach in the Pamela Anderson role of CJ Parker, and Hadera as Johnson’s love interest Stephanie Holden. Not pictured is Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra, who plays the film’s villain.
Hasselhoff himself is set to make an appearance in the film, which offers an R-rated take on the classic TV series. Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), Baywatch hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
