Crush object: Zac Efron, actor.
- As of this past Saturday, our little Zac is now 21 years old. So now we can finally, fully express our Cinematic Crush on him without feeling all pervy about it.
- He became an instant Tiger Beat heartthrob with Disney's smash hit TV movie High School Musical. He reprised his role as the dreamboat BMOC of East High Troy Bolton in last year's equally successful small screen sequel, and returns one more (last?) time in this week's big screen release, High School Musical 3: Senior Year.
- "Ladies' Choice" is right: his slicked-back hair and ever-ready wink made all the girls (and quite a few guys) swoon as Link Larkin in another musical hit from last year, Hairspray. His performance in the film won him the "Breakthrough" award at the MTV Movie Awards.
- Taking a break from tuners, he'll be seen next in the period drama Me and Orson Welles, followed by the age-switch comedy 17 Again.
- But nothing will stop his dancing feet, as he's rumored to play Ren McCormack in a movie musical version of Footloose, not to mention that planned Hairspray sequel.
UPDATE: Here's the trailer for 17 Again, in theaters April 17.
