Zac Efron: Let’s Not Hear It for the Boy

zac-efronZac Efron is having a bit of a crisis.

First, he’s sick of singing and dancing. That’s a shame, as his cooking sucks. A Footloose production staffer says that Efron dropped out of the remake because “he did not want to do another musical at this point in his career.” Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Efron had “ankled” the production. It takes a helluva man to fill Ren McCormack’s pants, but the High School Musical star may also have balked at the prospect of growing out his hair to resemble Kevin Bacon.

But Efron, it would seem, is happy to dip his toe back into the 17 Again waters. Today comes word that the big man on the East Side High campus wants to get back together with Burr Steers, the director of his Disney-like rejuvenation comedy, for The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. The story centers on a cemetery caretaker who communes with the spirit of his dead brother. The role calls for Efron’s best guilty grimace, as he thinks he’s responsible for his sib’s death. It’s a little like the end of Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel. Only, we suspect, a bit shittier different.

It’s evident that the 21-year-old wants to move on with his career, but is a script based on a book by a Good Morning America executive producer really the way to do it? Does he have what it takes to get out of his dancing togs and into something more serious? And who is going to take over that Footloose remake? Feel free to share your thoughts.

    So what if he is gay. Zac is a good actor, singer & dancer

  13. Chris Says:

    Can we focus on the matter at hand, his god awful acting ability? The ability to seduce fourteen year old girls is not enough to be deemed a credible actor. This is one career that just needs to be shot. In the face.
