Baywatch locates The Rock's love interest

The Rock has found somebody to love for BAYWATCH.

Taking to his Instagram account to make the announcement, Dwayne Johnson made the reveal that Ilfenesh Hadera has landed the role of Stef, who will be positioned in the film as his character's love interest. No other details were given as to the nature of who Stef is, but, given the comedic approach being taken with the BAYWATCH big-screen adaptation, you get the feeling a certain Johnson is going to be embarrassed in front of her on at least one occasion.

Hadera had recently been a part of HBO's ensemble for the SHOW ME A HERO miniseries, and is a veteran of Spike Lee, having made appearances in both CHI-RAQ and his version of OLDBOY.


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 strong calloused hands are the ONLY HANDS allowed to rub suntan oil on her soft supple 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 🕶👙🍆🔥👊🏾💯
