22 Fascinating Facts About Jason Momoa
And that first gig? Well, Baywatch Hawaii, of course.
Really, when you think about it, there is no more perfect role for a guy like Jason Momoa than playing a lifeguard on Baywatch Hawaii. He’s got the physique, the look, the laid-back island vibe. Plus, he was living in Hawaii, working in Hawaii (at a board shop and then as a model), and pretty much embodies everything that island life is all about. After Jason made a splash as a model, he was cast as lifeguard Jason Ioane on the series. He played the character for three years, then went on to star in a few other shows before his BIG big break.
