    I hear “Zack” and I immediately think of Mark Paul Gosselar’s character in Saved By The Bell. But Effron is the more likely candidate.

        Don’t feel too bad, I’ll see you and raise you on showing our age. That’s because the first name that came to mind for me was good old Vinnie Barbarino — John Travolta (but I’m sure it’s wrong, and the correct answer is a more contemporary teen idol…) 😉

      Zack reference… maybe AC Slater? Maybe Mario Lopez!!! He is BFF’s with Eva, and God knows that woman would have my best gays dripping off of her!

    Well, as soon as that charachter was introduced in the movie, I knew it was Zefron. Yep. and we all know he is…no shocker there.

    Hahaha, I don’t know what to think of Zack Efron. I’d say he’s bi(just to be nice).

    Well, if I wasn’t sure it was Zac Efron before, I totally am now. I went to the imdb site for the movie and if you pull up the whole cast there is a Coach Effron listed as uncredited.

    I don’t know if I really think he is gay though. Perhaps bi, but possibly just a massive metro…

    I know he is exhausted pretending to be straight, it’s alot of work but this is about money and the powers that be made him a straight star..

    maybe he’ll come out in 20 yrs once he has amassed millions.
