“Eventually… but not at this moment,” he said.

Though he might not be in a classroom, Zac is finding his career to be an education of its own sort.

“I’m learning so much every day working with great directors. I just worked with Richard Linklater and Burr Steers and also Kenny [Ortega],” he told Shaun. “I’m working hand-in-hand with directors and taking home a lot of lessons.”

As for reports that Zac will take over for “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe in his role in the Broadway play “Equus,” where Daniel bares all onstage.

“No, that’s a rumor,” Zac told Access. “I wasn’t approached for it.”
