24 Reasons Why Zac Efron And Dwayne Johnson Are Perfect For The New 'Baywatch' Movie

Because abs.

  • That signature red swimsuit, dramatic slo-mo running on the beach, and those orange floaty things...

    • It can only be the legendary 'Baywatch.'

    • The iconic 90's TV show featuring The Hoff as the head lifeguard of the elite Baywatch squad, pulled in over 1 billion viewers worldwide during its peak. And now it's back with a fresh makeover.

      Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is the leader of the Baywatch lifeguards. He clashes with new recruit Matt Brody (Zac Efron), a washed-up pro athlete brought in as the new face of the organisation. However, when a dead body is recovered from the ocean, the two must put aside their personal differences and work with their team to stop a criminal mastermind's drug trafficking operation.
