Despite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson being named "Sexiest Man Alive," it's the ladies who could steal the show in the big-screen version of Baywatch.
"Basically, we're just hanging out on the beach every day," Kelly Rohrbach told ET's Kevin Frazier. "It's like a party every day."
ET caught up with Rohrbach and the rest of the cast during a recent visit to the Baywatch set in Miami.
The upcoming action-comedy follows devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Zac Efron). Together they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Our entire #BAYWATCH squad. Are we bad ass? Yes. Do we save lives? All day. Are we a dysfunctional family? Epically. Do we have fun? F*CK YES. We work hard, we play hard. @thejonbass @alexannadaddario @kellyrohrbach @ilfenator @zacefron #BAYWATCH Get ready world... MAY 19, 2017. (and yes, I'm the king of the #FargoStrut.. squared circle historians know what that means.. #OurBelovedMemphisTerritory woo!)
While it's been 15 years since the television series took its final bow, the impact the show made on popular culture still lingers, leaving the current cast with big shoes to fill. Rohrbach plays C.J. Parker, the role Pamela Anderson made famous in the '90s, and she admitted to feeling the pressure.
"A little bit for sure," Rohrbach said. "But Seth [Gordon], our director, and our producers have been so cool in making it their own and our own and letting us bring what we want to it. It's an R-rated comedy, so it's definitely a different feel than the TV show. The TV show was a little bit melodramatic."
While the movie might take on a different tone, it still called for toned bodies. Efron and Johnson both raved about the other's physique in talking to Frazier.
"Let's take a moment to look at the shape that this guy came in," Johnson said, pointing to Efron, who returned the compliment.
"This guy motivates you to work out," Efron said. "I started following him on Instagram. He's an animal!"
No magic formula or secret to success. I'm up at 4am daily and puttin' in the hard work that I already know my competition is not willin' to do. If they're willin' to get up at 4, then you bet your ass I'm gettin' up at 3. And if they're willin' to get up at 3am, then well... I'll be gettin' up at 2:59 cause that's just bullshit. I don't pretend to do it. I do it. Daily. It's my anchor and will always be my edge over my competition. You don't have to wake up at the ass crack of 4am dawn to find your anchor. Whatever it is that gives you "your edge" over everyone around you - then that's what you do. You find it, you apply it and you protect it. Whether it's your co-workers, teammates, classmates or business associates.. the #AnchorPhilosophy applies to every facet of our lives. #FindYourAnchor #CreateYourEdge #ProtectThemBoth #AndPlsDontGetUpAt4amCauseItAintPretty;)
Ilfenesh Hadera, who plays Stephanie Holden, was looking forward to possibly getting some motivation in Johnson's gym, which he refers to as the Iron Paradise.
"I'm hoping [Johnson] will invite us to the Iron Paradise at some point, which is his lair where The Rock is built," she said. "Zac has a guy who comes on set sometimes. When Zac is busy, he'll give us a little quick workout and we're just trying to look like Zac, all of us. It's the goal."
EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: #BAYWATCH Day 1. My character "Mitch Buchannon" just gave @zacefron's character "Matt Brody" the all important beach speech about what it means to have manly "Alpha balls". Zac's ad-libbed responses were brilliant! Talented and great dude. World get ready to have some fun, 'cause the beach will never be the same again. #OnSet #BAYWATCH #Day1 #AlphaBalls #NowWhoNeedsMouthToMouth?😂
If anyone gets invited to Johnson's gym, it would probably be Alexandra Daddario, who plays Quinn. The two go back, as she previously played Johnson's daughter in the 2015 blockbuster, San Andreas, and she told us that they're on a strict first-name basis.
"I just think it would be so weird to be like 'Hey, The Rock!,' or 'Good morning, The Rock,' or 'Hey, Rock!'" she said.
Baywatch, also starring Priyanka Chopra and Hannibal Buress, hits theaters May 19, 2017.
