The superstar actor starred alongside Zac Efron in Baywatch this summer, bringing the 1990’s TV phenomenon to a new generation.
The Rock brought the brawn as Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon, leader of the lifeguard team, while Efron, the June 2016 Men’s Fitness cover star, got absolutely shredded to play Matt Brody, a Ryan Lochte-like former Olympic swimmer and new recruit.
