Zac Efron Would Trade Places With ’17 Again’ Co-Star Thomas Lennon

'I would run around as you and just be a total idiot,' actor says to the 'Reno 911' star.

With the release of [url id="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/438080/personmain.jhtml"]Zac Efron[/url]‘s “17 Again” on April 17, it’s “High School Musical” alumni week. MTV News is going to catch you up on what the future holds for all of your favorite East High Wildcats!

Zac Efron seems to have a pretty charmed life. At 21, he’s already a movie star, a teen heartthrob and he even gets to date his “High School Musical” co-star Vanessa Hudgens. But if given the chance, much like his character in [url id="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/365329/moviemain.jhtml"]“17 Again,”[/url] Zac Efron said he wouldn’t mind spending the day as someone else. And who would that someone else be? His “17 Again” co-star and “Reno 911″ star, Thomas Lennon.

“I would run around as you and just be a total idiot,” he told Lennon and MTV News at the junket for “17 Again.” “Sure, I’d trade places with Tom for a day. I think being Dangle for a day would be amazing.”

Lennon would happily oblige — he even has a “Reno 911″ script idea in mind: “Zac Efron is Dangle for a Day.” “Don’t even kid about changing places with me because I will get you a set of the shorts this afternoon,” he joked, informing Efron of the other activities he’d get to do in his shoes. “You could do the fun stuff I do, like spell check ‘A Night at the Museum.’ ”

With Efron picking up Lennon’s slack, it means that he gets the chance to live the life of a dreamboat. “Probably go out and create mischief. Get chased around a little bit,” he said of his plans as Zefron for a day. “Go stand in very public places and get chased, because then it’s like every day for you — running around, hiding in a newspaper.”
