In case you haven’t heard, there’s a Baywatch movie coming out. Before you start balking at the idea (or developing a serenely blank look on your face as you remember the slow-mo running… THE RUNNING!), note that much like Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s 21 Jump Street was a modern reboot that parodied its cheesy TV series source material, Baywatch will also be skewering the red swimsuit adventures of Mitch Buchannon and co as an R-rated action comedy.

The iconic role of lifeguard leader Mitch, once made famous by David “The Hoff” Hasselhoff, is of course being played in this version by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Fast and Furious star has always had a very active social media presence, and during the course of the production on Baywatch he’s been revealing select pics of the cast on set. But he’s now finally posted up the full cast, for you all to lasciviously ogle check out below.


For those of you who don’t know Instagram handles out of your head, that lineup is Jon Bass as Ronnie, Alexandra Daddario as Summer Quinn, Johnson as Mitch Buchannon, Kelly Rohrbach as C.J. Parker, Ilfanesh Hadera as Stephanie Holden and Zac Efron as Matt Brody. Also in the cast is Quantico star Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds, who Johnson also revealed on Instagram a while back as the main villain of the film. 

It’s also been confirmed that David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson – who famously played Rohrbach’s character C.J. Parker in the original – would be appearing the movie in some form. And though we’ve yet to see Anderson in the high-cut red bikini she helped to make iconic, Hasselhoff is already getting back into those trunks of his.

And here are some more pics of the cast on set, also revealed by Johnson.

Baywatch is directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) and was written by Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911!), Damian Shannon (Friday the 13th, Freddy vs Jason) and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th, Freddy vs Jason). It is scheduled for release on May 19, 2017.
