Celebrity Lookalikes: Zac Efron And Chase Crawford
Chase and Zac could be twins! Both guys favor tough-guy leather jackets and often pull stylish beanie hats over their tousled locks. Zac might be the bigger name, but Chase is taller—he’s 6’ ft while Zac is 5’8”.
From TV To Movies
Zac Efron scored big when he landed the role of Troy Bolton in High School Musical. Since the success of the first TV movie, the HSM franchise has made millions in threaters and launched Zac’s film career. Chase Crawford played a similar character in the smash TV hit, Gossip Girl. Nate Archibald is a cleancut, all-American guy with a love of the good life. Now, like Zac whose starred in Me and Orson Welles and 17 Again, Chase is gearing up for a movie career of his own.
Rumors swirled that Zac Efron would be taking over Kevin Bacon’s career-making role in the remake of Footloose, but the part is actually going to Chase! In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chase said, “I know Zac and we’re actually friends. He’s gotta make the best choice for his career at this point and I have to make the best for mine and luckily it worked out for both of us.”
Chase will have to do his best Troy Bolton impression when he unleashes his dance moves for Footloose. “It’s a great modern adaptation,” Chase says. “Pop culture has changed so much since the 80s. I’m not going to have the Kevin Bacon hair and tight jeans!”
