You Won’t Even Recognize ‘Hannah Montana’ Star Mitchel Musso Now!
Sweet nibblets, ya'll — it's Oliver Oken in the flesh! Mitchel Musso starred on the hit Disney Channel series Hannah Montana — alongside Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment — as the dorky but affable Oliver from 2006-2011. Now, fans are curious what the 26-year-old actor and musician is up to now, especially since he's throwing it back to his Disney days with a hilarious sweatshirt.
"I'm the man who had the Jerky," both the sweatshirt and caption read. The merch, which is available on Represent.com, is a throwback to an episode from Season 2 in which Mitchel's character Oliver and Miley's on-screen brother Jackson accidentally create a cheese-jerky recipe that sells phenomenally well.
But Mitchel's latest photo isn't just a source of reminiscing for fans of the Disney show. Many have noticed that Mitchel has changed a lot since we last saw him on our TV screen. "He's changed sooooooo much," one commenter wrote. Another wrote, "This can not be him."
