Can you think of an actor as handsome, attractive, and charming as the young Zac Efron? 

According to the producers of High School Musical: The Musical The Series, Joshua Bassett is the talent whom millions of viewers are bound to develop a fat crush on.

He has just been cast in the role of Ricky, the protagonist of the forthcoming series involving a group of high schoolers who stage their own version of the High School Musical

What else do Zac and Josh have in common?

Joshua Bassett is the rising star of the High School Musical: The Musical – The Series. 

Unlike Troy Bolton, Ricky decides to audition for the High School Musical out of sheer despair. 

Having foolishly asked his girlfriend, Nini (Olivia Rodrigo) to take a pause, Ricky is surprised to find that the girl leaves him behind after just a few days, pursuing a relationship with the budding entrepreneur of the school, EJ (Matt Cornett).
