Dwayne Johnson’s hard R comedy Baywatch has completed its casting by adding Priyanka Chopra. The actress is best known for her current TV hit show Quantico. She’ll play a character named Victoria Leeds, who according to Entertainment Weekly is the film’s baddie.
Johnson made the announcement via. Instagram as he did for every single cast member’s addition to the film. His enthusiasm alone was enough for me to buy this movie, but the additions of Zac Efron (as his partner), Alexandra Daddario (as Summer), Kelly Rohrbach (as C.J. Parker), and Ilfenesh Hadera (as Johnson’s love interest). The announced cameos by David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson should also attract fans of the hit 90’s TV drama. As for Johnson, along with producing he’ll star as the by-the-book lifeguard named Mitch. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is directing, and production is set to begin next week for a May 19, 2017 release.
