After promoting 17 Again in Australia and parts of Europe, Zac Efron has begun the U.S. leg of the promotional tour. He visited with Matt Lauer on the Today Show this morning to chat about the movie. In 17 Again Efron plays the teen version of Mike O’Donnell.
Mike (adult version played by Matthew Perry) was a guy who was not happy with the way his life turned out so he wished he could return to High School and change the outcome of his life. The next day he wakes up a 17 year-old version of himself played by Efron. Efron had to work directly with Perry so he could pick up his mannerisms while playing him as a teen.
Zac was also surprised by Kathy Lee Gifford on set whom he made fun of during a skit on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Zac became the youngest person ever to host Saturday Night Live.
17 Again opens in U.S. theaters on April 17th.
