‘Baywatch’ Photo Reunites Dwayne Johnson and Alexandra Daddario
Alexandra Daddario was the first female actor to join Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s R-rated Baywatch shenanigans, but she’s been curiously absent from Johnson’s growing collection of set photos on Instagram. Don’t worry, San Andreas fans (all four of you), Daddario has officially suited up and reunited with her co-star for the upcoming film based on the classic ’90s series.
Johnson’s latest Instagram update from the set of Baywatch shows off Daddario, his San Andreas co-star and fellow lifeguard team member:
Johnson has been introducing his fellow cast members over the past week with photos and details on their roles. Although he fails to reveal the name of the character Daddario is playing, we at least know she’s on the side of the good guys.
Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon, the role originated in the classic Baywatch series by David Hasselhoff, who will (obviously) have a cameo in the new film. Efron plays Matt Brody, a cocky newcomer who butts heads with Mitch, an elite lifeguard determined to stick to the rules. The pair must overcome their differences in order to save the bay from an oil tycoon. Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra plays the film’s antagonist, with model Kelly Rohrbach in the Pamela Anderson role of CJ and Billions star Ilfenesh Hadera in the role of Stephanie Holden. Comedian Hannibal Buress also stars in Baywatch, which hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
