Actor Jeremy Allen White showcased his acting talent as a young, award-winning chef in the comedy-drama television series, The Bear. In his latest film, The Iron Claw, the actor teams up with fellow actor Zac Efron. However, Allen White admits that he has never watched his co-star’s High School Musical movies, the movies that made Efron a household name around the world.
Allen White is ready to watch the movie but only on one condition: if Zac Efron holds his hand throughout the film. Their latest film, The Iron Claw, has been named one of the top 10 films of 2023 by the National Board of Review.
