Alex is a one of kind woman (I know from experience) and can’t wait for you guys to see her own the role. The female roles of #BAYWATCH have become extremely hot properties around Hollywood and as promised, the quality women we’ll cast are stepping into these roles to have fun and make them iconic for the world to enjoy. The #BaywatchFamily so far consists of a tatted up bald guy named Rock, the cool, yet extremely unattractive Zac Efron, the talented and gorgeous Alexandra Daddario…and some big casting announcements coming soon.

    Gee, I wonder if “that scene” in True Detective helped Alexandra get this role?

    A remake positively no one is interested in seeing. Now, if Dwayne can get his act back together and his back back in shape, he can do a sequel to the Get Smart movie he made. Now, THAT was a reboot worth mentioning. Bring all THAT cast back for a few more sequel runs. Now, THAT would be REALLY talking!! Only, make his character a good guy who was kidnapped by an impostor in the first movie and is rescued for the second movie!! That’s unfinished business!!

    AND, a few more sequels to FASTER, please, Dwayne!! Bring THAT whole cast back, too!! Unfinished business and settled contracts ABOUND with THOSE characters, too!! 8)
