Matthew Perry to Wake Up Looking Like Zac Efron

Like The Metamorphosis, only dreamier!

When you look at Zac Efron, do you see a younger version of Matthew Perry?

New Line hopes you do, because Efron will play Perry’s 17-year-old self in 17, a teen comedy to be directed by Burr Steers. In the film, Perry and Efron will add a new twist to the age-swapping tradition proudly established by such notable comedy duos as Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage (Vice Versa), Dudley Moore and Kirk Cameron (Like Father, Like Son), and, of course, George Burns and Charlie Schlatter (18 Again!). The Hollywood Reporter summarizes the story below:

In a scenario that turns the concept of “Big” on its head, the Jason Filardi-penned script follows a middle-aged father who wakes up to find he’s 17 again. In order to be close to his children, he enrolls in the same school as them.

Perry, who recently wrapped The Laws of Motion with Ginnifer Goodwin, Hilary Swank, and Ben Foster, joins a cast that also includes Leslie Mann. Production on 17 is scheduled to begin early next month.
