Can’t wait until The State DVD comes out on July 14 (my birthday, so if you were wondering what to get me…)? You should probably check out 17 Again. Wait, bear with me — so the concept’s not novel, and, uh, it’s geared toward preteens, but if Zac Efron shirtless doesn’t draw you in (WHY WOULDN’T IT?), go for the unheralded hilarity of supporting players Thomas Lennon (a State alum) and Melora Hardin (The Office) — they top my Must List this week. Lennon’s gleeful charm as Efron’s nerd-in-arrested development best friend goes perfectly with Hardin’s straitlaced high school principal. Just wait until they learn they’re both fluent in Elvish — it’s a match made in comic-book store heaven.

Watch this deadpan interview with Lennon below, check out the latest episode of Must List Live, then share your own Must List picks with us. List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, April 23 at noon ET.
