High School Musical fans get ready for Zac Efron as you’ve never seen him before… as the hunky baby doll ‘Link’ in Hairspray, the musical. You’ll also get to see John Travolta in drag (not that big of a shock as it turns out) and some great music and dancing. Hairspray the musical movie is based on a stage musical which itself is based on the original 1988 John Waters cult film of the same name. Efron is currently filming (or preparing to film) High School Musical 2 with the rest of the original cast.
The first trailer for Hairspray has hit the nets and it looks great. It’s embeded below the cut so you can see it for yourself. Hairspray will take over the theaters on July 20th.
If the viewer isn’t working you can see it on AOL’s movie line.
