Slo-mo beach running is back! The days of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson immortalizing the red swimsuits in Baywatch are in the past, and we now have a new generation ready to bring some notoriety to the swimsuit.
The movie reboot of the popular TV show of the same name is underway and ready to hit theatre screens in 2017. Leading the cast of hot, young stars is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. For those that don't know who he is...where do you live, Mars?? The Rock has been a bankable actor for movies since starring in 2001's The Mummy Returns. His notable films have included: The Rundown, Faster, The Fast and Furious franchise, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, San Andreas, and HBO's Ballers.
The Rock likes to post updates on his current projects on his social media and is one of the more consistent actors to do this. Whether it be workout updates, diet regimens, on set photos, or behind the scenes shots, he keeps his fans engaged. Recently he posted the 3 following Baywatch images and blurbs to his Facebook account:
