Hairspray Live's Garrett Clayton Explains Why He's Not Zac Efron
In fact, the 25-year-old actor has previously shot down the idea that they’re anything alike, despite now having played the same character.
“People compare us so much. I think everyone expects me to want to be like him. [Zac] was more of the romantic leading man,” Garrett once told Flaunt magazine. “Whereas I’m kind of like the funny best friend a lot of the time. I just want to be able to be a character actor.”
DO YOU THINK Zac and Garrett have any similarities?
