Modern Day James Dean?

Is Zac Efron really considered the modern day James Dean? If he is, wow...have times changed. This High School Musical phenom is the latest GQ cover boy. While I'm still debating how I feel about Zac Efron, I do like this photo shoot, he's surprisingly able to pull off the 60's swagger. His attire and slicked back hair-do remind me of Danny Zuko busting a move Grease Lightening style!images/gq

Look, he's no James Dean. Wasn't his appeal that he was so untouchable, fragile, but still a little bad? Zefron is a HSM kid... But there's no denying he's so charming and handsome. So pretty... *sigh* :-)

Pretty - yes.
James Dean? No way.

I'm personally more of a Robert Pattinson fan. I think he pulls off the James Dean thing better

I'd say Zefron is the modern day ... John Travolta? Heehee

I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I do love Zac, especially having seen him looking so pretty in 17 Again! And these photos ... he's just so hot, there's no denying it.

I was so surprised by this photo shoot--he really pulls it off, doesn't he? I agree with the statement that he's more travolta than dean though...

I do NOT get the Zac Efron thing at all, but a GQ photo shoot has the power to make anyone swoon-worthy. Oo-la-la!

Hmm, I'm not really a fan of Zac Eron, but I have to admit - I really like the 2nd and 3rd photos! But no way can he be compared to James Dean!

Zac Efron... HSM in general... are not worthy to wip shit off of GREASE's shoes!
