Ilfenesh Hadera has joined the rapidly growing cast of the BAYWATCH movie. She will play Dwayne Johnson’s love interest, Stef. Johnson made the announcement today via his Instagram account.
The big-screen version of the 1990s television series follows the leader of an elite group of lifeguards who is forced to team up with a young, hotshot former Olympian to save their beloved bay.
Hadera joins Johnson and the previously announced Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, and Kelly Rohrbach who is taking on the infamous role CJ Parker, made famous by Pamela Anderson.
Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman are producing the film alongside Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, and Gregory Bonann.
Hadera currently stars in Showtime’s new series Billions and has also starred in Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq and the HBO series Show Me A Hero.
She is repped by Gersh.
