Zac Efron is Speed Racer

Zac Efron is Speed Racer

Go, Speed Racer! Go!

High School Musical‘s Zac Efron is in talks to star in the lead role of The Wachowski brothers’ (V For Vendetta, The Matrix trilogy) adaptation of Speed Racer, the live-action adaptation of the Japanese cartoon series.

Zac, 19, was even granted permission by Disney to leave the High School Musical 2 set for a day so that he could attend the Speed Racer callback audition. I think this role is perfect for Zac. If Warner Bros. is smart, they will snag him!

Speed Racer is scheduled for a May 23, 2008 release.

Zac already has a feature film Hairspray with John Travolta set to drop July 20.

No! He doesn’t look cute enough!

He’s definitely a cutie… and if you read the whole “fantastic article”, a mega-b*tch in training. Give him 3 years, and he’ll be super hot and intolerable ;)

All Little tween girls love Zac, he looks a little to young to play Speed-Racer.

I think Zac is just trying to break out of the “disney-esque” thing. I mean, he doesn’t want to be remembered as that kid in a disney movie for his whole life. I respect him for trying to break out of it – and in the NY times article, he was just being blunt about it, and I’m sure they twisted his words around. He’s still awesome. =)

damn. i’m not hugest fan of his obviously-smug-and-vain ass. but holy f, does he look the part…

yayayay. good for him.

YES YEs YES YES!!!! i love ZAC!!!!! AHHHH!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOHOHOO!

you are so good in vanesas music video say ok

ok after reading the things at zacefronfan.org and actually going to the site of jim holl however it’s speelled. people need to stop worrying what zac is doing with his life. if he wants to leave hsm3. good, but the fact is no1 has signed up 4 it yet. another thing is, zac and vanessa are dating in real life. pssshh. those 2 have said it over and over and over again that they are NOT dating. but at least what if they are? what if they are not? so what if they are. what are you going to do about? and yes, most of the disney actors have a good life going on for them. and you know why? i think it’s because since we start watching them at a young age, and we like disney world, disney land and so on.so they actually become our role models. not all of them. but i mean zac has it going on mostly because us kids are in love with his looks. not the real person, but his character. why is that? it’s because we don’t know him in real life. maybe we’d like him better in ral life. but right now, i think people should leave him alone, cause if his messing up on stuff, his really messig up on his life. not ur life. and mostly why i wrote all this is because. if the song is we’re all in this together, well apparently it doesn’t seem so. but in the movie it self, zac(troy) said something like ” it’s just not 1 person in the team, their’s more than 1″ and it doesn’t take 1 person to play the game, it takes more,

but really i’m happy if zac efron wants to be in the movie “speed racer”, and i totally can’t wait for “hairspray” to come out. i’m #1 fan of can efron. but all this stuff people are saying don’t make any sense unless zac efron himself says it, and theirs witnesses to actually here him say it.

so good luck in everything zac.
YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!woooooohooooooo…….; )

oh sry, i meant zac efron at the top, not can efron.**********
