Kids network Nickelodeon thinks they have the next best thing (to Zac Effron).

Newcomer Nolan Gerard Funk plays heartthrob Nikko Alexander in the upcoming Nickelodeon movie "Spectacular!".

"It's a coming-of-age, coming-of-rock-star story," describes 23 year-old Funk. "My character, Nikko, has just been dumped by his girlfriend and kicked out of his band. He really wants to become a big rock star. That's his dream."

25 year-old Tammin Sursok (of "Y&R" fame) plays glee-clubber Courtney Lane, who offers Nikko a humorous catch-22 chance at recording a demo.

"I would be thrilled if this finds its audience the way "Grease" and "HSM" did," Canadian-native Funk hopes.

"I think everybody is just dying to do a sequel."

We'll just see about that... on Feb 16 at 8pm EST.
