HSM Act 2: Lucas!  
And the hits just keep coming.  Next stop: Grabeelville!




Name
Lucas Stephen Grabeel

Known aliases
Lu

Birthdate
Nov 23 1984, Springfield MO

Special talents
Confidence and adult wisdom

Key quote
"Success is the most important to many. To me it's just a bonus."




Don’t try to hide from us, Lu. We know you’re still out there, even if you didn’t do an ounce of press for HSM 3. We saw you in the Sara Lee commercial! You can run but you can’t hide! Oh sure, you were, “filming Milk,” but this all seems like an artful dodge to us.

But seriously, we see Lu following the same arc as Mo but with considerably less arm strength. He will pursue quieter but meatier roles; Milk was already a good move.    So while Zac has the commercial appeal, Lucas actually has the chops. If he keeps making choices like Milk and putting himself in the paths of legitimate actors and directors, we think he has a shot at the Ryan Gosling path to stardom.  From Disney/Canadian teen star to dramatic indie actor with an Oscar nomination under his extremely moody and serious belt!   Now casting for his Rachel McAdams-style star-crossed lover!

We also note that IMDB has listed his involvement in a flick called The Legend of the Dancing Ninja.

Huh.

That doesn’t sound like a period piece or a biography of a rising political star gunned down too early or a character piece shot on a shoe string budget.  It also appears to co-star The Hoff. This could be a brilliant career move showcasing his comedic timing or it could be a painfully bad idea. Historically, ninja movies that cast white guys as ninjas don’t fare all that well (see: Farley, Chris- Beverly Hills Ninja)…. And Holy Boltbus!  This is actually a sequel to Beverly Hills Ninja!

Alright, Lu, you win. We’re at a loss now.

I always thought Lucas was the most musically talented of them all.

If the HSM cast were the spice girls, He would totally be Mel C.

Zef is of course Posh

I actually love this image, though I think V would claim that she is the Posh.

LOL Well my friends and I have given this a lot of thought, and I considered BBV as Posh at first, but I thought Vanessa would be more suited to Baby Spice. There's baby in both nicknames! And a play at wholesomeness and innocence that no one's really buying.

Zef, like Posh, gets all the attention and Press, and it just amuses me.

Corbin's hair is remarkably similar to Mel B. circa the 90s as well.

The Tizz is Ginger mostly because Sharpay is the Diva.

I admit that it's flawed, but it amuses me. And sadly there is no room for Mo.

That's okay. Mo transcends.

Bravo for putting this up!

Good old Lu. Do you think he even sees the other 4 kids anymore? I say 4 because Mo would not find it acceptable if he stopped talking to her.
M: Ryan still might be a stoner.m_alicious on May 22nd, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
I love that icon. I think it's probably as close to the truth as we will get.

I'd like to think he keeps in touch with the others, but I bet it's kind of like keeping in touch with high school friends once you meet your new college friends. You like them, but they know a different you.

Indeed... everyone else knows him from Milk, but the HSM crew will never forget that Lucas did Miss Teen USA.

Oh, it still hurts. You can bet that didn't make it on the reel.

Lucas attended Monique's 20-mumbleth birthday party last November along with Corbin and Drew Seeley. It was 80s theme and there are pictures of Lucas and Drew pretty well toasted there all over the Internet. I can dig them up, they're very funny, one of them used to be Drew's twitter's background graphic. Drew posted on his twitter that he saw Lucas's show, but I don't know if he counts. ;) A friend of mine met Corbin a few months ago and was with a younger cousin or something, and the little girl asked him if he hangs out with Troy and Gabriella, and Corbin told her no, but he does hang out with Taylor and Ryan. So there you go.

Dig them up plz! I actually saw one or two of the Mo 80s birthday photos a long while back, but I never got much further than that.

Also, if you really think about it, who would be more fun to hang out with: Lu & Mo or Zac & Vanessa? Good for Corbin.

Last: I don't think we've ever met before, so: Hello! :D
ohinternets on May 24th, 2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
I think they're all on my computer that just crashed. I rescued the hard drive and as soon as the torrential downpours stop (we're on day 4, yay) I'm going to buy an enclosure for the hard drive and will excavate the pictures and post them here. :) they're very funny.

I posted a lengthy response about the state of Lucas' career further down in this post if you want to read that!

Sign me up for that team as well...Lu was the most talented yet most under rated (well 2nd to Mo) actor in the franchise....

Heres hopeing for an Oscar nod in his future!!!
PS Pasta you wouldn't happen to have the origional image of that Lu/Mo pic from your icon lying around someplace would you? I Love it :)

Don't forget that Lucas is making a return to the stage as well! I recently saw him in The Fantasticks in LA. He was faaaaaabulous. He should do live theatre forever and ever, amen.
Mm_alicious on May 22nd, 2009 06:04 pm (UTC)
I did hear about that! Sadly, I am no where no near either NY or LA so I fear I selfishly wish for a return to screen that I might too partake.
Vodka Stinger: Lucas - working the skinny tiekelbebop on May 22nd, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC)
Very good point! I am all for seeing Lucas on the big screen. And I LOVE the Ryan Gosling analogy. Yes, please. :)

Apropos of nothing, I got to meet and talk with Lu a little bit after the show and I have to say he is even more adorable and gorgeous and awesome in person. :)
Mm_alicious on May 23rd, 2009 02:47 pm (UTC)
Nice to know he lives up to expectations!

Hey and thanks for de-lurking!

I would trust that you know much more about the state of Lu's career, so thanks for the update! (And btw, we've always called him Lu. It's just shorter. Similar to calling Ashley "Tizz." No harm or foul intended.) As you know from our disclaimer, we don't take ourselves too seriously around here. We kid because we love.

We truly do think he has a great future and it's good to know he's making good choices.
