Name: Matt Prokop
Where to see him: You may remember this cute face as Jimmie "The Rocket" from High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Get ready to see more of him with his new movie Furry Vengeance that hits theaters today!
Why we love him: In order to find a place where he wouldn't get in trouble for talking so much, Matt began taking an acting class in Houston, TX, on a whim. Who knew that after only a year he would be moving out to Los Angeles, auditioning, and getting a role in one of the most popular Disney movies ever?! Not only is he cute and an awesome actor, but this 19-year-old has made it very clear that he's got his mind on the bigger picture -- taking care of the planet and getting involved. He even went to Haiti last year to help out after the earthquake. Cute and with a heart of gold -- we love this guy!
He talks about... his new movie's "Green" message: "Respect what's around you. Many animals are becoming extinct and others you can only see in zoos because humans have destroyed their land. The movie reminds us that we need to respect our surroundings. We're not the only ones living in this world."
Now we want to hear from YOU, J-14ers! Do you think Matt is HOT or NOT? Let us know in the comments below!
