Alongside first-look photos, Zac’s recent muscular physique and hairdo has also caught social media’s attention and even Marshall Von Erich went on Twitter to say that his dad, (Kevin Von Erich) approves of the star’s recent new look.

“Great picture of [Zac Efron] throwing a Von Erich drop kick!” Marshall Von Erich wrote in a recent tweet. “My dad thought it was an old picture of him.”
