Zac Efron Was Not Disney's First Choice!

| Filed under: Yummy Yummy ScrewZac EfronDisneyHunter Parrish


He could have been the next Zacquisha!!!

Weeds hottie Hunter Parrish spoke about Zefron, how he was the front-runner for the role of Troy in High School Musical and also mentioned his connection to older women in an interview for the new issue of GQ.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On being shirtless on Weeds:
It’s not contractual, it’s just where my storyline is. I had to show my butt last season for the first time. And I had a hard time deciding whether to do it—we didn’t decide until the morning of the shoot.

On his affair Julie Bowen (15 years his senior) on Weeds, sleeping with an older woman on Law & Order and appearing in a Funny or Die video about cougars:
I don’t know. Maybe I’m a better actor when I know there’s going to be an older woman involved.

On being offered the Zac Efron part in High School Musical:
That is definitely a rumor but it was really, really close. It was down to five guys and then I got offered a part in this amazing Robin Williams movie. And I thought to myself: fly to Vancouver and meet the director for this Robin Williams movie, or stay and finish the auditions for the Disney Channel movie? So I didn’t even go to the last audition. I heard a rumor that I was their favorite, but I never made it to the end. I mean I would have had a blast doing it. But I’m so happy for Zac, he’s the only guy for that.

Damn, right!

We can imagine our lives without Zefron, but Hunter definitely isn't terrible to look at!

    He discussed some of these points on Chelsea Lately AGES ago. For what it's worth I think Hunter dodged a bullet when Zac was chosen. I mean come on , I'm 18 and I think that he's a bit too childish let alone grown adults. Weeds was a good, bold and mature move.

  16. 16

    Hunter is so hot on Weeds.. He is too hott for Disney. mmmm i heart him

  17. 17

    I saw Hunter Parrish star on broadway in "Spring Awakening." He was amazing and fantastic and I was SO impressed.

  18. 18

    he is way hotter then Zefron

  19. 19

    Least he dosen't look like a 12 year old girl.

  20. 20

    HSM without Quisha?? Not really.. I like Hunter but Zac's my favourite.. :)

  21. 21

    Zac wasn't Disneys secon choice either. Originally Disney OFFERED the role to the guy who played Logan on Zoey101, but Nickolodeon had him in a tight contract that wouldn't alllow him to go. Then they started auditions so I guess Zac was Disneys 3rd choice.

  22. 22

    why brag about a role he never got? and WHAT robin williams movie? attention whore. i don't really think disney settles for seconds. zacquisha was the best person for the part, cheese and campiness and all.

  23. 23

    looks kinda weird in that pic, but yeah. he's sexy. better than Efron. but does hunter even sing? eh, he probably does. they all do now…

  24. 24

    Look Perez everyone thinks Hunter is way hotter than Zefron and everyone over 15 hates highschool musical

  25. 25

    thank god he didnt do HSM. he is WAYYY TO HOT FOR IT.

  26. 26

    hunter is cuter i think then Zac

  27. 27

    Good choice, he has a more of an adult role on Weeds now… High School Musical would of ruined it.

    I love him, but Hunter needs to grow out his hair again. Haha.

  28. 28

    googled him and zac is better looking in my opinion.

  29. 29

    Cassie Steel, "Manny" from Degrassi was the first choice for Gabriella !

  30. 30

    Wish he had got the part, then we'd never have laid eyes on that little poof Efron

  31. 31

    hunter is sooo much hotter than zefron!!!!! he needs to do more nude scenes in weeds!!!

  32. 32

  33. 33

    Hunter is a mighty fine male speciman. Zac doesn't interest me in the least.

  34. 34

  36. 36

    The Robin Williams movie is freakin 'RV'.

  37. 37

    Re: SnowAngel1224 – To be honest, I don't think he bragged at all. He's actually very humble and he's trying not to say something horrible or something.

  38. 38

    He would have been waaaaaaaaaaaaay better.
