    Exciting news, but it will break my heart if Zac doesn’t do HSM3…

    I agree. No one can replace Troy Bolton.

    i prefer he doesn’t do any roles. i’m sure that there is someone else who is better.

    OMG I love Zac! i can’t wait for this movie to come out-I’ll be one of the first ppl to see it!

    I really hope that he comes back for HSM3. I wouldn’t watch it if they didn’t get the main cast back together.If they substituted any one it would just be a waste of money to make/watch it.

    i have to admit no one can replace zac but it his choice and i think that drew S. guy could replace him if it comes to an end for the true troy.

    I think that the original cast has to come back for HSM3 because if even one person is gone would just wreck the whole movie! So I hope all of them are going to be back!

    i totally agree, HSM3 wouldnt be the same without the same cast. If the same cast doesnt come back for HSM3, is not worth wathing. I wouldnt watch it. Is just not the same.
