Two more polls and a couple randomish articles  
POLL: Buzz Sugar - Best Saturday Night Live Host this year

Amy Adams would vote for him here too... yes, even over JT (lol, sorry modernthirst eta: and shrewtee).

Oh and another one:

POLL: Pop Sugar - Which Shirtless Guy Do You Want to Spend Memorial Day With? :D ------------>

You guys were talking about SNL ratings in the comments. I couldn't find some weekends, but this is kind of what I assembled for the Spring from some dude's blog at the Orlando Sentinel:

steve martin 5.2
alec baldwin 5.3?
tracy morgan 5.1
seth rogen 4.9
zac 5.1
jt 5.3
will 5.4

Not very comprehensive details tbh, lacking total viewers and such from Nielsen. Those are hard to come by though for late-night tv, unless you have direct access. So that's probably the best we can do, but it gives you an idea though of how the audience trended.

Also, Variety mentioned Me and Orson Welles in an article about Cannes. Nothing interesting just a puff piece, if you will, about titles of movies screened there. Quite possibly this will be all we'll here about it but

Analyzing the titles of Cannes films
Monikers shed light on global sentiments, concerns

Cannes was cuckoo for Coco pics and was teeming with teamings, judging by the titles available at the fest.

A film's moniker is like a coming attraction: It should give an indication of what the pic is about. And studying a list of the titles at Cannes is like reading tea leaves, providing a clue to what people in the world are thinking.

Certainly relationships seem to be troubled: "My Year Without Sex," "No Love in the City," "Cold Souls," "The Most Unromantic Man in the World," "Millennium: Men Who Hate Women," "Hardly Bear to Look at You," "Speak Out Against Domestic Violence" and "Air Doll," in which the title character is an inflatable woman. The Croisette was into girl power, with "High Kick Girl," "Take 3 Girls," "Robber Girls," "Shadow Girl" and "The Dead Girl's Feast."

There were also "Coco," "Coco Before Chanel" and "Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky," none of which are to be confused with the Cannes restaurant Coco Loco.

Aside from Coco and Igor, fest titles were big on pairings: "Frankie and Alice," "Charlie and Boots," "Samson and Delilah," "Adam and Eve," "Yuki and Nina," "Bob and Bobette," "Mary and Max," "Miguel and William," ""Peter and Catherine," "Agi and Emma," "Alec and May," "Marvin and Me," "Me and Orson Welles," "Ramu and Juliette" and the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of "Yo-Rhad and the Astromavericks."

Faulty translations, or just singular ideas? It might have been either one with titles such as "The Wondrous World of Laundry," "No One Knows About Persian Cats," "The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle," "The Three Investigators in the Secret of Terror Castle," "The Night of the Living Dorks (aka Revenge of the Teenage Zombies)" and "Hitler Goes Kaput!"

Amid this cornucopia of great titles, a few were indispensable for fledgling festgoers: "French for Beginners," "A Night in Cannes" and "Surviving Cannes."

You probably all know Zac was parodied in Dance Flick (no brainer that he would be). The character modeled after him was named Jack and the dude who played him, Brennan Hillard, hopes Zac isn't mad about it... honestly I can't imagine Zac is, it's just how it goes. But anyway, this kid talked about how he admires Zac and also gave his tips on mimicking Zac to People Magazine...

Spoofing Zac Efron: 5 Simple Steps

Like the saying goes, "You know you've made it when someone's spoofing you."

At least that's what Brennan Hillard would tell Zac Efron – if he ever meets him. Hillard, 19, stars in the new Wayans Brothers' comedy, Dance Flick, which opens Friday, and plays a "very effeminate version of Zac," he tells PEOPLE.

Born in California, but raised in Arizona, Hillard started acting when he was 10 years old but got his first break on the American Idol spin-off American Juniors when he was 13.

"I thought that was the highlight of my career," he says of the gig, which got him an L.A.-based agent.

Six years later, he got his first film role after auditioning for all the Wayans. "I freaked out," he says. "I've never been in a call back this big." But he landed the part and is ready for his big-screen debut.

Well, almost. "I'm a total wreck," he told PEOPLE, the day before the movie's premiere. "I'm getting my suit pressed. I'm scared out of my mind and am more anxious. It's my very first movie premiere!"

Now that he's the expert, Brennan filled us in on the five ways to be like Efron, but wanted to get a quick message out first: "I hope he'll still meet me," Brennan says. "I'm a big fan of his work and I hope to do some work with him in the future – and no hard feelings!"

The Hair: "You need to have what I call the Efron Swoop," Hillard says. "Your hair needs to go across the face at all times. We took the flat iron and just straightened the bangs out, made it swoop, used the gel, made it kind of messy and it looked just like his hair at the time."

The Tan: "You need to have the perfect tan at all times," Hillard advises. "I usually don't tan that much. I like being pale, but I tried to tan as much as I could. I couldn't fry myself but I did have to go once or twice a week for just six or seven minutes in a tanning bed."

The Muscles: "I hate the gym. I absolutely hate going and I don't understand the people who enjoy it. It is a pain for me," admits Hillard. "I work out as much as I can and afterwards I feel great, but during it, I hate every single second of it. I work on my abs a lot; I do a lot of running; I do a lot of biceps curls and triceps."

The Song & Dance: "I had to watch [Efron's High School Musical number] "Get'cha Head in the Game" like – I don't even know how many times," Hillard says. "I was singing it in my sleep."

The B-Ball Skills: "Zac [spins a basketball on his finger] so well and I can only do it for literally two seconds," says Hillard. "I watched him on Ellen and he just sat there for a whole minute with a ball on his hand. I also had to dribble a basketball. I had to learn how to do drills. I had to dance with the basketball. It's harder than it looks."

I heard Meron & Zadan would be part of the sequel like Scott/Marc. I think one of them.....Meron did an interview where he talked about Zac & Footloose & talked about HS2.

I dont want to wait that long :(
