Bubba Lewis: Not Just Zac Efron's Life Partner
But the Georgia-born singer, dancer, and good old boy -- who took the name "Bubba" to emphasize his country-fried heritage -- does more than bask in the glory of High School Musical fever. He has a resume of his own, full of serious dramatic vehicles.
Flags of Our Fathers (2006): About the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima during World War II. Bubba plays one of them as a boy.
The Bottom (2007): A boy working at a gas station "in the ruins of America."
Plus episodes of Saving Grace, Medium, ER, Numbers, and Dexter.
He doesn't do many comedies.
Just Weather Girl (2009), about a Seattle weather girl who moves in with her little brother and romances his bff (Patrick J. Adams, Ryan Devlin).
Notice that Bubba hasn't played any heterosexual romantic leads. Not one. It's all about the BFFs. Which is always good for gay subtexts.
