Zac Efron will be sliding on some iconic red trunks for his next role

The actor has joined the cast of Baywatch, he revealed on Twitter. The film, based on the TV show of the same name, will revolve around a bunch of (very attractive) lifesavers who work at the beach. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) is set to direct.

Dwayne Johnson, who is also starring in the film, confirmed the casting news with an excited tweet
