LOS ANGELES, April 25 (UPI) --
Zack Wilson of ABC's "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann" will be hoofing on the big screen in "High School Musical 3," the dancer says.
"HSM3" director Kenny Ortega picked up Wilson as a stand-in for star Zac Efron, who was busy filming "Me and Orson Wells" and missed the first few weeks of rehearsals, TVGuide.com reports.
When Efron finally made it to the set, Ortega decided to keep Wilson around, he said.
"I'll be in a few dance numbers in the movie," Wilson told TVGuide.com.
Wilson is the former fiance of "Dancing with the Stars" pro Julianne Hough.
