Zac Efron: No More Musicals

Zac Efron: No More Musicals

Zac Efron stops by his hotel in London and signs some autographs for his waiting fans on Wednesday (March 25).

The actor has been shying away from musicals and is currently pursuing more mature roles. After dropping out of being a part of the Footloose remake, Efron is seeking to play a cemetery keeper in The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud.

The High School Musical star will also appear in a more serious role for Me and Orson Welles where Efron plays a teen in a production of Julius Caeser, directed by a young Orson Welles. The movie will hit theaters later this year.

    He has to be careful not too fizzle out by the time he is 25. Those are the harder years for male actors…not too many meaty roles. And…can he sustain longevity?

    what’s wrong with musicals? i don’t think he can really hack it as a song and dance man full time anyway. his singing is limited and he can’t really dance. good luck on being a very serious actor, zac.

    He didn’t say that he would never do another musical. He just wants to look at other things for a while. I think it’s a smart move. I love musicals also, but there are very few that would offer him enough of a challenge. He should do exactly as he is doing. Look for more mature roles so that he can show off his real acting ability. Of course, I’d go to see just about any movie that he was in.

    Word is he’s VERY jealous of Robert Pattinson rise and his career and fame Zack probably envies him the Twilight series which appeals to older teens, not super young kids and young tweens like HSM. Maybe why he is going for the messy hair look now, trying to compete with Rob. I know my nieces (13-14) say Zack is old news and love Rob now.

    I think he’s doing the right thing. Who wants to be just a musical star? There aren’t too many musicals being made anyway so why limit your career. I think he’s smart to be doing these small, independent films where he can grow and build a body of work. Eventually people will want him to work in good movies and he can become a real actor and not just a teen idol. Good for Zac to look to the future and not just accept these stupid musical roles to make tons of money. In the long run, he could be another Brad Pitt and stick around until he’s middle age.

    Good for him. I knew he was too sensible and smart a guy to sign up to any more musicals. He would have been wasting his talent.

    He doesn’t need to be envious of anyone, his career is doing very well. Hype is not the same as industry respect or longevity. He’s been there, done that and is on his way up the ladder to being taken seriously.

    If he wanted fame and money, he would have stuck with Footloose. But he left of his own volition. Other male hearthrobs are welcome to the space he’s happily vacating.

    This movie sounds very intriguing and appears to be a moving, romantic drama. It will give him the room to show more of his range. I need to order the book asap.
