Ready Your Bodies: Zac Efron And The Rock Are In Talks To Star In “Baywatch” Reboot

Ready yourselves: Zac Efron is in talks to wiggle his tanned torso into the iconic red shorts of the forthcoming “Baywatch” reboot, set to start production in 2016. This is great news for anyone who loves Zac Efron, and also anyone with eyes, because even if you don’t love him, you can acknowledge that his torso is a work of art and looks like it would be both faintly cool AND warm to the touch.

Zefron will be joining Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot “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.” Sure. Sounds great. Sounds just open and floppy enough to support and maintain a whole lot of shirtless running montages of the both of them.

Make it happen. Zac, say yes. You are marginally funny and could be funnier with more coaching. Let the Rock teach you how to transition from sex symbol to sex symbol who can act. We’ll be waiting, patiently, right here.
