    I would rather watch an average man who can ACT, than some model who CAN’T. Not that he qualifies to be a model ’cause he’s too short. .

    I just don’t understand how he can say he wants to be like Leonardo DiCaprio in terms of choosing quality films, and then go and do a film from the same author whose books were adapted to Dear John, The Last Song and Nights In Rodanthe, especially after the failure of Charlie St. Cloud. He definitely has the most potential out of all the HSM cast, it’s just so frustrating when actors choose such obviously non-beneficial roles in films solely aimed to make money, yet say they want to be like DiCaprio as opposed to going the more “risky” move of doing quality independent or smaller films. What happened to the art of acting?

    Is it me or does it seem like his movie picks need serious second glances by his PR team? Poor guy, he reminds me of when Andy Roddick could have been the super boy of tennis but Roger Federer kept cleaning house. Looks like Rpatz is the Federer of acting right now and Efron is Roddick.

    Let me guess, somebody is going to die at the end of the movie?

    No offense, but he really does not suit this act… I’ve read the book and I can never imagine him playing that charactor:/ not in a million years. He’s too commercial good-looking… (if you get what I mean)

    He seems to be a very conscientious young man who chooses projects that are right for him. Level headed and smart. I hope he has a long career.
    If he wants to be like Dicaprio, he has to GROW into that stature, the same way Leo did. I’m sure Efron wasn’t talking about becoming like him IMMEDIATELY. Besides being a very good actor, DiCaprio is known for having a career of diverse roles; perhaps this is what Efron wants to emulate. Some people expect these young artist’s to do everything right from the start. They make mistakes, not that I think Efron has made any so far, and they’re allowed to learn their craft as they go along.
    BTW Leo’s first film was Critters 3, a less than B Sci-Fi film; it went straight to DVD. How you start isn’t necessarily how you end up. Nothing has happened to the art of acting, you can be a good actor in a bad movie. Leo didn’t do real quality stuff at the beginning of his career, but it got him noticed. Sometimes, it’s a matter of being noticed by the right person at the right time. Leo got the benefit of that.

    He says he wants to be a serious actor…then he makes schmaltzy crap like Charlie St. Cloud and now a Nicholas Sparks adaptation?!

    I do not buy him as a Marine. Sorry, but no. He’s also not old enough to play a Marine Sergeant.

    I read the book and I am excited to see Zac as Logan.

    He looks good in these pics….definitely older with that facial scruff.

    smh Says:

    ZAC EFRON will NOT be a serious actor unless he really makes better choices for films. HSM was popular among TWEENS & TEENS!…Seventeen Again was successful but it’s BLAH!…Charlie St. Cloud great story plot but it was a major FLOP!

    He has wayyyy more POTENTIAL htan his GF Vanessa Hudgens her movies are for young teens HSM, the Journey 2!…Geeeeeeezz! u are 21 years OLD pick better ROLES!

    maybe ppl will take u seriously….instead of being a pretty face!

    I’ve read the book, and I think Zac will do great in the role of Logan. He definitely look the part of an ex-marine in these shots.
