You perhaps know Jason Momoa best for Game Of Thrones and his more recent role as Aquaman in, erm, Aquaman. But did you know he also had a stint on Baywatch once upon a time? Just check out this photo…
Without all that flawlessly tousled hair and one if his lovely floaty blouses, he’s hardly recognizable, is he? Jason played Jason (convenient…) on the TV series from 1999 – 2001. Oh, and he reprised this role for the 2003 TV movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.
But there’s a decent possibility he may have never got this role if he hadn’t have lied on his CV. The 39-year-old recently disclosed that he told a little porky about being an award-winning model in order to get a part on Baywatch.
Talking to Square Mile, Jason said “We just kind of bullshitted our way in and then I met some managers down there: they kind of made up some stuff for me like, Hawaii Model of the Year.
“We basically just did head shots of me and said, ‘Hey he’s the model of the year’. We just made it up.
Jason added that, despite not really needing to lie anymore, he kept ‘Hawaii Model Of The Year’ on his CV for a while after his Baywatch gig.
“Well it kind of stayed on there. It’s like, when I finished Baywatch, all I had was Baywatch, and you’ve got to have something more credible. So we just left it on.”
