    First comment?

  • Izzy

    yaya! Happy to see your keeping up on Zac/Hairspray news Jared. Thanks!

  • Eathan

    They can promote all they want, but this is gonna flop majorly!

  • K

    Does anyone else think Zac Efron isn’t cute? ew

  • Eathan

    This was really terrible. I just love how fat people think they’re appreciated, when they’re not.
    All those screaming girls out there are cheering Zac and James, not aware of the fact that they’re probably fcuking each other.

  • boss

    james marsden is so much hotter that zac efron…and EATHAN who cares of they are doing each other?? jealous are you? lmao

  • me too

    Eathan,

    Get a grip. We know your life sucks and the only thing you can think
    do is spout garbage out of your trash can of a mouth. Bitch, moan and
    whine all you want, but, do it where we don’t have to read it.

  • katie98

    the movie is getting great reviews. love the whole performance! zac’s hot!

  • Hoover

    I’m shocked to see that Hairspray is the 2nd best reviewed movie OF THE YEAR. That’s fuckin awesome.

    Me and a few friends are going to see it tonight before we go pick up the Harry Potter book, lol.

  • wiggim

    Dude… that’s cold…. nothing is wrong with overweight people and they should be appreciated because they can do anything (not involving weight) that any of us can

  • Stacy

    I cant wait to see this movie… I am going tonight with a bunch of friends. This movie has had GREAT reviews and Nikki looks great it in. I bet this movie will be number one at the box office this weekend, not only because it looks like a great movie people will want to see, but because every girl ages 18 and under will be going to see Zac. Bash him all you want but he is a great actor and has a huge fan base. Also, he is just that good looking!

  • [~Famous~]

    Flop!

  • Deb

    Flop or no flop – I am going to see this movie.

  • jojo

  • disaster hair-away

    Geez can this Zaiken dudette look any more gurly..yuck..that big chick is not cute. The other guy looks more manly.

  • JustJared Regular

    WTF?? FLOP?? This movie has ALL GOOD REVIEWS. I can’t wait to see it. I bet you it will be either number 1 or 2 for this week’s box office.

  • lisa

    Ew, jojo, how could you dare see that piece of shit homophobic film?! I’m glad it’s critc rating isn’t above 20%. It deserves it.

    Anyway, can’t wait to see Hairspray!

  • marie

    i love zanessa!

  • WTF?

    Zac Efron looks like a female Clay Aiken. He totally ripped off Clay’s hairstyle.

  • courtney

    Nikki sang part of “Good Morning Baltimore” not “Welcome to the 60′s”. I watched the show this morning! :)

  • WTF?

    Oh and the orginal “Hairsptry” with Ricki Lake is so much better. They did not need to reamke this film. For what? to add more singing and dancing? Please.

    Um I guess you did not here that in about 10 years 75% of the US population will be OBESE. Not cute and veryone will be dying left and righ by age 40. How you can condone a lack of self discipline and poor nutritional habits (obesity) which in turn bring about a host of medical problems is beyond me. The US never use to be like this.

  • Ashleigh

    DAMN! NIKKI WAS ALL OVER ZAC IN THE END ON THE VIDEO I DIDNT EXPECT IT! I WISH I COULD DO THAT TO BAD IM NOT NIKKI OR VANESSA.

  • Ashleigh

    LOL

  • Seb

    Oh LORD! Here we go again!! Enough!
    Although, I WOULD TOTALLY HAVE A 3WAY WITH JAMES&ZAC!
    2 Closeted Mo’s are just fun!

  • jojo

    lisa
    4 ur info
    i didnt diss hairspray
    a little sick of the promos
    i said
    i love adam sadler
    and thats my choice so back off
    go tell off all the rude people talking about zac and niki

  • jam

    is zac downsyndrome? my friend said he was

  • twinkatplay

    i think he is

  • bettybaby

    aru crazy???!!! down syndrome! thats a sad comment. all i can say is hot, no super hot! as always, thanks jj for posting.

  • amanda

    he hasn’t got down syndrome

  • andy

    he looks less ugly than usual but these arnt close-ups…that boy and his makeup arghhhhh scary ya’ll!!

  • jenny

    thats a very sad debilitating disease
    its not funny
    zac is a healthy guy
    and all the families who have
    sibs or family with DS should be respected!!!!!!!!!!

  • jjack

    i agree but that boys boys mingin!! he reminds me of this boy i punched once at school

  • Junky

    For some, being overweight is an addiction to sugar and carbs. Thin people obviously aren’t addicted to those substances. But being so judgemental is ugly.

    This Zac guy looks exactly like Clay Gayken. Does no one else see that? He is a clone.

  • Junky

    To jjack:

    “but that boys boys mingin” HUH?

  • creativegirl

    well I just got back from the movie and it was great! I felt like applauding after every song and at the end I realized I wasn’t the only one who felt that way because everyone in the audience busted out into applause at the end of the movie.

    I also haven’t laughed so much at a movie in a really long time. There is some really funny stuff and it is just hilarious watching John Travolta as Edna and Christopher Walken together! It was a riot!

    The whole thing was great – the casting was perfect!

    ZAC was adorable as LINK and he did a great job, I loved watching him! I can’t wait to see him in HSM2 and Footloose and I’m a mom!

  • creativegirl

    oh and for those who say why remake it when Ricki Lake already did it – I say why not! She obviously approved because she makes a cameo at the end of the movie!

  • David

    Thank God the headline doesn’t read “Zac Efron at Today Show” this time. I hope that you talk about the other stars in the movie from now on and not just Zac Efron.

    No, Disdain, we didn’t “here” (sic) that stat. “Hear” it? Sure.

    Also, if you want to compare the US of old versus today, you can lay the blame on a sendentary lifestyle that we have versus the days of old.

    And as for condoning it? Why because no one is throwing stones at her or other overweight people? Take your ideas of what is considered beautiful or acceptable and stuff it.

  • bettybaby

    just got back from the movie, loved it!!!! way to go to everyone in the cast, especially zac.

  • Jessica

    Zac is hot. ‘Nuff said. James is hot too, but he’s married. :)

  • hoooray

    is there a way you can upload the others? stupid msn doesnt work and i upgraded everythingggg

  • matt

    JJ you’re making Zac Efron come off as the best new thing in Hollywood; your making people hate him! :p sure he is very refreshing but he’s yet to prove himself. don’t get me wrong i see his appeal too

  • sue

    I went and saw the movie and it was AWESOME..Zac is soo hot in it andthe rest of the cast was perfect..The moive made me laugh and it made me want to get up and stat dancing…!!!

  • Hm

    Hi people I have a question… I don’t understand the sentence: “OMG Zac Efron” How can you write something like that… It’s so silly. I’m from Europe and my english isn’t very good, but “OMG Zac Efron” Is it normal?
