“Let’s Have Some R-Rated Fun”: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially found a new “love interest” in the upcoming Baywatch movie: actress Ilfenesh Hadera, who plays the character Deb Kawi on the new Showtime drama Billions. (Oh, and you can follow Hadera on Instagram @ilfenator.)  [Entertainment Weekly]

EXCLUSIVE: Casting my #BAYWATCH love interest wasn't easy (extremely tough job but hey I'm one of the producers;) but we finally found her. For our coveted role of "STEF", she had to be a lot of things: Strong, intelligent, formidable, beautiful and funny. Want to welcome the talented @ilfenator Ilfenesh Hadera to our #BAYWATCH family. She's a 5'11 walkin' smokestack with legs for days. Smart and tougher than new rope.. just the way we like 'em. And seeing as she's playing my love interest – my f*cked up calloused hands are the ONLY HANDS allowed to rub suntan oil on her skin. You hear that Efron? Step out of line Zac and she'll knock your unattractive candy ass into next week. Mine too😜. Our dope cast is coming together nicely with a few more big announcements/cool surprises along the way. Let's have some rated R fun.. We are the keepers of "The Bay". We are… #BAYWATCH. #SandSquadUpInThisBitch 🕶👙🍆🔥👊🏾💯

A “Glorious Renaissance”: Sylvester Stallone deserves that Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination he received for Creed—and there’s a good chance he could take home the golden statue, writes David Sims in The Atlantic. “Stallone’s remarkable performance in Creed in some ways feels like a response to the countless Rambo and Expendables sequels he suffered through to get to this point,” Sims writes.

The Supermarket, Re-Invaded: Consumers aren’t buying so-called “diet foods” in huge quantities anymore, so brands like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig are shifting gears to more generally labeled “health foods” that emphasize non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free ingredients (even if those claims aren’t proven to be nutritious).

Song for the Dumped: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has a lot going for him: He’s won a Super Bowl, made a Pro Bowl, and is happily married to his high school sweetheart, Emily. But long before they tied the knot for good, there were some rocky moments: She apparently dumped him in middle school. “She didn’t want to be tied down to one guy in seventh grade during the summer,” Nelson said. Understandable. [FOX Sports]

Anything But a Sure Shot: The Houston Rockets fouled the Detroit Pistons’ Andre Drummond early and often in their matchup Wednesday night, but it didn’t really work all that well for either squad: Drummond missed 24 of his 36 free throws, and the Rockets still lost. [CBS Sports]
