Director Seth Gordon and Paramount are ready to get down to some serious business - finding the female lead for their big screen BAYWATCH adaptation - and it appears they may have assembled a bit of a shortlist of candidates they're about to test to potentially star opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron.

According to Mike Fleming, Alexandra Daddario (SAN ANDREAS), Ashley Benson (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS), Nina Dobrev (VAMPIRE DIARIES), Alexandra Shipp (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), Shelley Hennig (TEEN WOLF), Bianca Santos (THE DUFF) and Denyse Tontz (BIG TIME RUSH) are the most notable names being brought in, with the likely possibility that the search may be expanded in order to take a look at a few more actresses who might fit what they're looking for. There's also a chance more than one of these women may land in the film in various other supporting roles depending how things shake out.

Now I don't know about you, but looking down this early list, I'm not sure how you possibly move forward with a BAYWATCH movie without Daddario involved. I mean, come on... Do I really need to spell out her qualifications for this type of role? And, if the film is going for more of a comedic tone, I think she has the right package to poke fun at the source material which was a worldwide sensation but would have a hard time getting off the ground in today's PC climate.

Daddario? Yes. A thousand times yes.

And personally, I don't know how you'd make a Baywatch movie without Kate Upton, either. Granted, we may not enjoy watching her act, but we can have her in a supporting role with Daddario as the female lead.

I don't care who the supporting casts are going to be but as long as Daddario is in, I'll go see it.

Daddario, Benson, and Dobrev would make for quite a sexy team if this comes to fruition. Of course I'd have to wait for this to come out on Bluray so I could enjoy this in the privacy of my own home without other people seeing what I'm doing.
