Obviously, the most important question about the Baywatch movie — besides “really???” — is: Which male hunks will be running around the beach shirtless? Viewers of the show came for Pamela Anderson, but stayed for Parker Stevenson. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has already signed on because God loves us and wants us to be happy, and, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Zac Efron is in talks to slow-motion join him in the Seth Gordon-directed film.

The story centers on a by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon. (Via)

What an odd, sexy couple! As long as it’s the Efron from Neighbors, and not the Efron from basically all his other movies, musicals, and DJ Entourages, he should be a good foil for the always on-point Rock. There’s still no word on which actresses will appear in Baywatch, which is due out in 2017, probably because producers are trying to clone Sofia Vergara.
