Tropes applying to Zac:
- Adam Westing: He appeared in a SNL sketch as Troy Bolton returning to East High to tell the seniors that in the real world people doesn't begin singing and dancing out of nowhere.
- Ascended Meme: Possibly. Apparently he's in talks to be in the American adaptation of Death Note.
- Now rumor has it that he turned down the part citing the need to cast Asian actors for the Asian characters, avoiding a Race Lift. Which is surprisingly noble for someone whose public image was once that of a vapid pretty boy.
- I Am Not Spock: With the exceptions of 17 Again and The Lucky One, All of his post-HSM films kept flopping at the box office until 2014, with smash box office success of Neighbors and the modest success of That Awkward Moment.
- Mr. Fanservice: Takes his shirt off a lot. Is also tricked into taking his shirt off a lot.
- One of Us: Is known to be a fan of Naruto and Death Note, the latter of which may contribute to the above. Reportedly, he was asked by Disney to downplay his more nerdy tendencies.
