David Hasselhoff has started filming for the new “Baywatch” movie with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The new stars just can’t stop talking about the “the man who started it all.”

Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are having fanboy moments after meeting the original Mitch Buchanan on the sets of “Baywatch.” The stars have taken to social media to share their experience of shooting with the star. Efron tweeted to his fans that he was honoured to meet Hasselhoff while Johnson took to Instagram to tell about his “phenomenal day on set with his brotha.”

Johnson’s Instagram post, which has a photo of the shirtless stars, reveals Hasselhoff’s association with the franchise. “In the 80’s he drove the coolest car on the planet. In the 90’s he dominated slo-mo running on the beach with the most successful TV show of all time. Phenomenal day on set with my brotha – the OG himself @DavidHasselhoff – the man who started it all. Great dude with a great sense of humor. AND he trained his ass off for our movie,” states Johnson’s caption.


According to Yahoo movies, Hasselhoff reached the sets of the movie within three weeks after Johnson announced his casting in another Instagram post. The star looks like his fabulous old self too. Johnson revealed that Hasselhoff trained especially for the “Baywatch” reboot.

Hasselhoff, 63, is filming the movie with a considerably young cast including Johnso , 43, and Efron, 28. E!News reveals that one of the scenes filmed had Johnson and a bare-chested Hasselhoff running down a beach wearing red swim trunks. The move is reminiscent of the signature scene from the original “Baywatch.” A barefoot Hasselhoff carried a rescue can while Johnson donned a navy shirt over his trunks, sneakers, and sunglasses, according to E! News.

In addition to David Hasselhoff, “Baywatch” cast members are Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Hannibal Buress, and Ilfenesh Hadera.
