he has like 15 projects in the works/ going to film?
it sounds like he likes to over -work himself?

# 2

truly gifted actor

# 3

This sounds extremely similar to “Bobby” just with a different Kennedy?

Who is the director?

# 4

@lauren:
Actually he has just 4 projects now, but you never know, he was previously announced for others roles and the project didnt worked out or a better actor took the role (ie Shia LaBeouf) Besides he didnt filmed one single movie this year….

# 5

and you think zac career is better ? ***** plz all his movie are flops yea that right he has like 11 movies next year but that doesn’t mean he has a good career because if you actually see the biggest stars in hollywood doesn’t have more than 2 movies in one year so yea it seems like he accept any role they give to him and his fans are all like “yay he will prove himself in this movie ” but until now he didn’t prove anything to people
so yeah just like how vanessa’s career is trash after HSM so is zac’s career

@holly: There speaks the right one. And of course. I just take The Lorax. Production costs of 70 million $ and the movie had a box of more than 70 million $ one opening weekend, sounds really like flop, especially with worldwide $348,840,315, ya that’s really a flop. Stop the crap, you’re nothing but one of the endless and useless haters that nobody needs.

And if he wants to get better, he has to do more movies and work a lot. He’s in NY to shoot his next movie, he isn’t there just for fun. And as for good actors have just one movie come out. Well Russel Crowe has 6 upcoming movies, I wouldn’t say that he is a bad actor. 40 won awards speak for himself. You should do a little more research before you talk sh*it like all the other haters here.

You can open your mouth when you’re better than him, when you were in more movies, have won more awards and did more than him. Well I’m sure that I don’t get old enough to see that, so I’m not going to waste my time.

Finally they realize that this short little boy of mediocre talent cannot carry a successful box office film.

are you like comparing Russel Crowe movies who are BIG budget movies to zac efron’s indie movies who most of them are produced by his friends
and BTW i’am not again indie movies but when MOST of your movie not even most almost all his moviee are indie then you can say the producer can’t trust him to carry a big movie in BO and pls don’t bring the lorax since it star TAYLOR SWIFT so the movie will have a huge numbers in BO with or without zac and and actually i’am not saying vanessa is better than him because she is just like him

I think it’s a good move on his part. Take roles in ensembles to work with better actors. Don’t headline a movie if it is mediocre and the script is questionable.

@holly: taylor swift can’t act to save herself

Wow Holly, you must be really famous since you know what big box office producers and directors are thinking. Do they talk to you about Zac while your blowing them? Oh, and if you want people to take you seriously you might want to address ‘like’ your complete lack of grammatical skills.

mmkay… i cant be asked to read these comments but i think it shows that he does have some sort of potential if he is still getting good roles. what i dont like is that it always looks like he only goes for the movies with the big major stars (even Indies) so he will always get recognition regardless of how good he is. as much as it seems like a must in hollywood, you can often get outshined like nicole kidman getting a golden globe nominee and he didn’t. he must really push for contreversy if he wants those big awards. i am also a fan of vanessa (shock i know lol). its rare that people are fans of both because the fans are always fighting. i think vanessa also has potential. i know you guys think im talking crazy but i really do think both of them can get that one movie that breaks them through completely. spring breakers looks interesting. at first i thought it looked dumb but when i found out it was a korine film and i watched the clips they seem interesting. the reviews may appear mixed, but a majority said it was a good film. there will definitely be contreversy behind selena, ashley and vanessa due to the history in child shows which is not as bad as it sounds. plus their performances might be spot on as the reviews i’ve seen (excluding the work of Franco) both ashley and vanessa are the two that stand out in the movie. i like the diversity of vanessa’s roles. what i dislike is her constant “woman empowering” attitude (she said it in sucker punch and spring breakers event). i partly understand sucker punch but spring breakers is just a bunch of aroused teenage girls that find pleasure in all that is bittersweet. and playing a prostitute in frozen ground is far from empowering. i like her thriving attitude but she needs to think about what she says and how it applies to her work.

just my opinion. :)

Marsha
LOL i don’t speak english very well but i’am talking about something which is happening all his movies for next year are indie did i lie ?????
Beta
she didn’t have to act the lorax was an animated movie

Congrats man i think he grew up so fast since High School Musical, so nice to hear that he is doing new projects, this mean that he is so talent and everyone in hollywood wants him on their movies, good job man.

PD: i loved him in liberal Arts and The Paperboy

Maybe some people here need to stop the hate and see the results before speak, he is such an amazing actor in my opinion and that’s all what i believe.

lol a doctor? maybe this is another comedy (a dark one tho)

sounds like a good dramatic role for zac and something he’s not done before.

ThankyouJesus @ 12/19/2012 at 6:36 pm

LOL I love how all of you are fighting & I’m just a fangirl who’s happy that he’s finally playing a doctor…is there something wrong with me?

adorable

but is he gay??

lanas-world @ 12/19/2012 at 7:59 pm

@dasisy: he is. he dated a guy named Vanesso for 5 years.

lanas-world @ 12/19/2012 at 8:00 pm
