# 1

Sounds derivative. And how is he the new ‘it’ boy??

# 2

I don’t like romantic comedies, but this sounds so random. I hope it will be good,

# 3

He’s gonna have a great career as an actor.

# 4

He’s not much of an actor, so these repetitive romcoms will do it for his career. He will never be taken seriously! He needs to audition for Randy Blue!

A little bit from the press conference earlier this day:

(Reuters) – Zac Efron says his movie career is at a crossroads, and the former Disney teen idol is tempted more by less pay and hard graft than blockbusters and big bucks.

Zac’s words:

“All I have, really, is the ability to look back at my elders and the people that I really respect in this industry, the actors that have been here before and really made an impact … and I put myself in their shoes,” Efron said.

“I sort of stand here with, say, two roads in front of me,” he told reporters after a press screening of the film and ahead of its red carpet premiere at a glitzy evening gala.

“One (is) the easy path … towards money and the other one being towards playing more interesting roles that I don’t have all the answers to, or going with Ramin into the cornfields for a couple of weeks.

“It seems like the choice that I respect more. I’m following my gut here and this is what I want to be doing, you know. I’m hungry for it.”

He’s not looking for easy money, he wants to work for it.

Also from the interview and Zac’s words:
Every choice that you make, you know should be challenging and should be scary in a certain way …

He’s right. People who always go the easy way, are usually going nowhere, they aren’t successful or anything like that. The ones who choose the hard path will be the completely opposite.

He’s young and way more mature than a lot of people out there in his age and he’s also more mature than a lot of people who are older than him.

He really should be looking for his “Lawless” but maybe those roles aren’t an option right now. Shame he missed that boat.

@zac gayfron so what movie did your friendput you in ? can’t wait to see you in ,”I’m a big jerk A–”.
Many actors have producers as friends who put them in movies. It looks like Zac is getting good reviews on the most part for “At Any price”.
Justin Nappi ,Zac’s friend is one of the producers of this one also.

So Zac is being well received in Venice? Time for Vanessa Hudgens fans come out of the sewer and attack

“Are We Officially Dating?” I think I’ve seen that kind of comedy before. On TV. Curious why he would take this role.

His opportunities are becoming more limited. He’s never had a big movie box office success.

@zac gayfron:

Justin and Jason are producing. Favoritism at it’s finest!

I love how haters are always on Zac’s blog, saying he will never be taken serious as an actor, then he sucks etc etc …People are forgetting the fact, then he is only 24 and made most of the things then the guys his age in movie industry. His movie career is starting to get better and better with each role he takes. And by the time he is 30 , he will be taken serious as an actor because how he goes, he is learning along the way.

Gimme thumbs down all you want, but I am telling the truth. Just wait and see.

@LOL So this is the first time for Favoritisim is it? I’ll bet they all will cry all the way to the bank. Jeajousy is so ugly, and it is all over this board.

love you zac, and respect their choices, but I do not understand that you have to choose or make indie films or blockbusters! because it can not do both kinds of films?

making a kind of film, keeps you from doing the other?

@r u sure what do you think about this project? sounds like a bad idea to me.

@Mandi I love everything Zac does that I have seen. I really can’t give a fair answer.

Just gorgeous! Keep on makin’movies, baby, and I’ll keep watchin’!

Ooh I’m definitely excited for this one! 1. I love Rom-Coms 2. It has Zac Efron in it. What more could a girl want?

Another stupid movie from his own production company. He’s just going to keep putting out all these lame flicks and star in them all.

Ϲ○М…under the name of Craig..the largest and best club for seeking CEOs, successful and sexy people.users over 30 .if you girls see this comment,i hope you will check my photos out there.maybe you are the one whom i’m looking for!!LOL

@yawn Get your facts straight This is not zac’s production co.
I would have more respect for some of you if you checked your facts first. Oh that’s right haters don’t care about the facts

It’s good he has a nice mix of things, I’ve heard great things about paperboy aswell.

Repetitive rom-coms? 17 again was a comedy, this one is a romantic comedy. Aside from these, which rom-coms has he done? And he just did 2 serious indie flicks-The Paperboy, At any price. So its nice to do some comedy IMO. Get your facts straight.

@tate You have no ida what you are talking about he has had several bix box office hits, including The Lucky One. like it or not it made several time back what it cost to produce, and is still making money in some parts of the world. The DVD is selling very well.
HSM 3, 17 Again sound familiar ? it isn’t what haters think it is what the studios think.

So pretty.

Evangeline @ 09/01/2012 at 4:44 pm

it sounds just like Friends With Benefits but twisted.

Don’t get me wrong I love Zac and support him in all his roles, but really?

Beautiful Zac!

Another stupid movie from his own production company. He’s just going to keep putting out all these lame flicks and star in them all.
