Monique Coleman will not be starring in High School Musical 4.

But we do know where this actress can next be found: on Fox.

According to various Bones spoilers, the 28-year old will appear on that show's March 19 episode.

Look for Coleman to star as Becca, one of several high school students that is questioned by the series' main characters after a friend shows up dead. What makes Becca and her pals so unique?

They have agreed to a pregnancy pact, as evidenced by the shot of Coleman, above, on set. That's just wrong.

As 2008 winds down, it's time to reflect upon those - from household names to relative unknowns, from A- to D-list - who made this year so memorable.

The Hollywood Gossip is unveiling 10 finalists for its 2nd Annual Celebrity of the Year award. They've given us their best, their worst, even their nude pictures in some cases. Now it is time for us to give something back with this moving tribute.

We previously profiled the expensive, Governor-seducing call girl, Ashley Dupre. Today, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #5 … the High School Musical Cast!

It was a huge year for Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and company... literally! While previous installments of this Disney franchise scored solid ratings, High School Musical 3: Senior Year was released on big screens across the country, breaking records and making names in Hollywood for all its stars.

Efron has received the biggest career boost from the film.

Previously compared with temporary teen icons such as Brody Jenner, Zac is now being discussed in the same breath as A-list actors such a Leonardo DiCaprio. In 2009, he'll star alongside Matthew Pretty and Leslie Mann in 17 Again.

Hudgens, meanwhile, gets to have sex with Efron. She also has overcome the biggest nude scandal of 2007 in order to resurrect her burgeoning resume. Like her delicious boyfriend, Vanessa has broken free from the teen mold: she'll be included among Maxim's Sexiest Stars of 2009.

As for Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and others associated with this franchise, they may very be included in our Celebrity of the Year profiles for years to come. Go Wildcats!

Why is Monique Coleman working out with such intensity in the photos below?

Because she's sick and tired of running behind Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale when it comes to High School Musical popularity! Those adorable actresses have received far more publicity for their roles in this franchise.

As you can tell, though, Coleman isn't gonna take it anymore!

You go, Monique Coleman! Click on the following images of this actress for more shots of her in action:

The new season of Dancing with the Stars begins March 17.

In the meantime, a series of past stars of the show are touring the country. Among them is High School Musical star Monique Coleman, who is paired with professional Alec Mazo.

Here's what she had to say about the tour to TV Guide:

TVGuide.com: Why did you decide to go on tour?
Monique Coleman: Because I didn't get to do it last year. It's the holidays and there's not much going on. And because of the passion I have for dancing ever since doing the show.

Before she begins filming High School Musical 3, Monique Coleman is Dancing with the Stars again.

TVGuide.com: But you're not going to be dancing with Louis van Amstel, your partner on the show. You're going to be dancing with first-season champ Alec Mazo?
Coleman: Right. Louis is doing the choreography. Alec is definitely tough, but he's amazing at what he does. I can't wait to dance with him.

TVGuide.com: Why has the show meant so much to you?
Coleman: I feel like this is a really tough time in the industry and I feel fortunate to have been a part of two projects that have been hugely successful. If anything, going on tour is an opportunity to express some gratitude to my fans and to get to see them in person. I wouldn't have made it as far as I did if it weren't for people all over the country voting for little me.

There's more than one hot guy roaming the halls of High School Musical.

So if you can take your eyes off Zac Efron for one minute, ladies, let's hear from his co-star Corbin Bleu.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Have you started working on your second album yet?
CORBIN BLEU: Right now I'm actually working on different songs and just trying to figure out where to go next. With the first album [Another Side, released earlier this year], I worked really hard. It was still a first album, though. Now I definitely feel very comfortable, and I want to take it to the next level.

EW: What do you hope to change from the first to the second?
Bleu: I want to have a lot more of my hand in the work of writing it. Just putting my own creative input when it comes to it.

EW: Does this mean you want pursue music more than acting right now?
Bleu: At the moment, because of the [Nextfest summer tour] and everything, I'm focusing on music. But after that's done, what would be ideal for me would be to go do a [big-screen] movie. The last time I did a feature it was called Catch That Kid, so that was a long time ago. There are a lot of different scripts and things that are coming in. We're trying to figure out what's next.

EW: Do you have a dream project or someone you would love to star with?
Bleu: Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors. Meryl Streep â€" I absolutely love her work. Just working with people that are truly legends and who have been though it. That rubs off. You learn from them.

EW: Do you have a role model?
Bleu: I really, really respect Jamie Foxx... He's a beautiful singer, he plays the piano wonderfully, he's an incredible actor. He's just a very well-rounded person. I very much admire that.

EW: As far as High School Musical 3 goes, are you definitely going to sign on?
Bleu: Right now we're in the negotiation process. I would love to be able to see a script. I think all in all it would be really nice to have some closure to this whole HSM phenomenon.

Meanwhile, there's also a High School Musical leading lady not named Ashley Tisdale or Vanessa Hudgens. It's time to hear from Monique Coleman after the jump...
