Can't embed but hilarious must-watch interview with Newshub HERE.
From Adam with LA Times
Devine insists that the jabs about his looks — a recurring theme in many of his roles — don’t actually cut that deep. Efron is, after all, “stunning.”
“I don’t know if I’ll ever get People’s Sexiest Man, and I think Zac is on the short list for that one,” said Devine, finishing his beer. “I tried to get in shape for the movie, and Zac saw how hard I was working and he’s such a sweetheart, he, like, slowed down his workouts. He stopped working out, basically, to have me catch up a little bit. I don’t think it worked, really, but it was pretty sweet of him to do.”

The Greatest Showman on Earth
From CineEurope via THR:
Much of the time was spent on The Greatest Showman, the Hugh Jackman-fronted musical biopic of legendary U.S. circus owner and entertainment businessman P.T. Barnum. Although the project has yet to go into production, director Michael Gracey was onstage to walk the audience through his vision of a film he said would be a "return to the classic film musical." He likened it to West Side Story, Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music.
Concept art and musical numbers were unveiled, as well as videos of Jackman and the team in rehearsals (one of which took place the day after the actor had an operation and defied the wishes of a doctor who said he shouldn't sing).
Casting via THR:
Michelle Williams is in talks to join Hugh Jackman in Fox's The Greatest Showman.
Zendaya is in negotiations to join the high-wattage cast of The Greatest Showman, Fox’s musical focusing on P.T. Barnum, the founder of the circus that became the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Michael Gracey is directing the project, which has Zac Efron and Michelle Williams in negotiations to join Hugh Jackman, who has spent years developing the project. Michael Arndt, who wrote the screenplay for Toy Story 3, is penning the script.
Jackman is playing Barnum while Efron will portray a playwright who becomes Barnum’s right-hand man. Williams will play Jackman’s love interest.
Zendaya will play a trapeze artist Efron's character falls for.
Broadwayworld and a few other outlets reported that Zac is singing in the background of a new song called "Shut Up."
Iman and Siham Hashi, better known as FAARROW, are back with another look into their debut EP this Friday in a new song called "Shut Up." The new song follows the former refugees' defiant and autobiographical title-track "Lost " which was also produced and co-written by actor and music producer Elijah Kelley (THE WIZ LIVE, HAIRSPRAY). Kelley's friend and former Hairspray co-star Zac Efron attended the session and can be heard on the resounding chorus of the song.
From an interview of Faarrow with Lennyletter
IH: I feel like if you listen to it you're going to feel like you can do anything and be able to tell the naysayers to shut up. Elijah Kelly, who's our producer and also cowrote the song, was in the studio with his friend Zac Efron (he's also an actor, and they were in Hairspray together), and he was so inspired and amped up! He was like, "You guys, this song is so amazing!" and going crazy in the studio. It was really cool.
