Harlem’s Alexandra Daddario And Zac Efron Together

May 24, 2017

Fellow New Yorker Alexandra Daddario (“San Andreas“) plays the movie’s dedicated new lifeguard recruit Summer Quinn, who helps Mitch and fellow rookie Matt Brody (Efron) investigate Victoria’s increasingly deadly schemes.

Of the rest of the team, Kelly Rohrbach surprises in Pamela Anderson’s role of CJ Parker, affectionately lampooning the character who set many teenage hearts aflutter, and Alexandra Daddario is a little bland but nonetheless necessary as Efron’s inevitable love interest. The snap was taken by Zac, which of course added even more fuel to the fire. The Harlem-raised actress (TV’s “Show Me a Hero” and “She’s Gotta Have It”) has somewhat different, less pleasant memories of the TV series.

No one’s going to go to see “Baywatch“, the film based on the hit ’90s-era TV series that was all about hot, heroic lifeguards and that gave David Hasselhoff a career, for cultural uplift, cinematic adventure, or to make themselves smarter. There’s a reason Chopra is a massive worldwide star, and she joins Johnson as one of the most charismatic people on screen.

Already a global star, Priyanka Chopra makes her U.S. debut as the villain of the piece, ruthless businesswoman Victoria Leeds – a part originally written for a man. “Just when I’m casually doing a slo mo run and the posters of Baywatch happen to be behind me …”


“By the time I got to set I was like, OK, I think I’m ready”. We took that idea and turned it into a raunchy action comedy.

It ticks all the boxes, with likeable leads, crude humor and a passable narrative underneath the fun, but it all falls a bit flat in the end. But it hurt his feet a lot, I must say. Big, dumb fun always has its place. I’d watch him beat my mother with a steel chair for two hours and happily fork over $15 bucks to see it.

At Monday night’s advanced screening of the film – hosted by The Cinema Society with Hugo by Hugo Boss, Women’s Health and Svedka – Ron Huebel, who plays Captain Thorpe, said he accepted the truth about Baywatch early on, and didn’t parse words about the meaning behind its fame.

Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own. “I love Indian food, but Southeast and Japanese is my favorite”. But I want to tell stories, I want to make people feel things.

“In the past, I never would have considered running for president”.
