Wax Zac

Today the wax image of Zac Efron was unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York. The figure is on loan from Madame Tussauds Las Vegas for 3 months. Zac joins fellow Disney stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers at the New York attraction.

Last year during the filming of High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Zac took part in a 2 hour process of hundreds of photos and 250 precise measurements of his head and body so that the likeness could be created. What do you think? Does it look like Zac? Leave me a comment.

If you are in the New York area or will be in the next 3 months you can visit the museum website to plan your visit.

No Tiara in HSM 4

Last month we reported that Matt Prokop will not be reprising his role as Jimmy “the Rocket” Zara in the 4th installment of the High School Musical franchise. Now thw Associated Press is reporting that Jemma McKenzie Brown’s character Tiara Gold will also be missing from the cast.

She said: “I think it’s been decided they’re going for a whole new route with it which is a shame but I had a really good time doing the third one.” Jemma has gone back to auditioning and says she has had some cool opportunities come up so far.

Good luck Jemma! It seems odd that so far 2 of the 3 characters that were brought in to HSM 3 to continue the saga are now not returning for 4. I wonder if Justin Martin is next. What do you think about this latest development?

Ashley’s Guilty Pleasure

Ashley Tisdale’s new album “Guilty Pleasures” will be released June 16th. This album has an edgier, guitar-driven, pop-rock sound, which is new for Ashley.

The first single off this project is “It’s Alright, It’s OK” and it will begin radio play and be available on iTunes on April 14th. We wish Ashley the best!

17 Again London Premeire

Zac Efron was looking great as always as he walked the red carpet at Odeon West End in London for today’s 17 Again premiere. It seems Zac was dateless again. Even co-stars Matthew Perry and Leslie Mann didn’t make it to London for the premiere. All of the stars are expected to attend the US premiere in Hollywood at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on April 14th, three days before it arrives in US theatres. Those that have already seen the movie as it has opened in Australia and France have given it high ratings and reviews. It will be interesting to see how this romantic comedy fairs here in the US. Are you looking forward to seeing 17 Again? Let me know what your thoughts are by leaving a comment for me.

Zac isn’t Footloose Anymore

Paramount Pictures has issued a statement that backs up yesterday’s rumors. “Zac Efron is no longer attached to the upcoming film.” says the statement. Zac has been part of the Footloose re-make plan since the summer of 2007.

Zac is trying hard to re-brand himself and get away from the good boy, singing and dancing roles that shot him to stardom. Just last week Interview magazine’s April cover was released and Zac is posing with a naked model-something Coach Bolton would disapprove of Troy doing, I am sure.

Not everyone is successful at re-branding themselves. It wil be interesting to see how Zac makes out on his quest.
