Zac Efron 'Had A Lot of Reservations' About Playing Ted Bundy in 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile'

Zac Efron 'Had A Lot of Reservations' About Playing Ted Bundy in 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile'

Zac Efron hits the couch alongside Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen and Matthew Broderick as they film their appearance on The Graham Norton Show, airing tonight (April 26)!

The 31-year-old actor opens up about starring as Ted Bundy in his new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile and says: “I had a lot of reservations about playing a killer and in this genre of film. I wasn’t interested in glorifying anything, but I was interested in the psychological aspect of whether he was capable of real love.”

“I was very hesitant to do it, but I knew I could,” Zac continues. “I just didn’t want to jump at something that could be seen as a desperate shot at trying to change my image. It was a unique experience and not what anyone expects. It makes me proud.”

Zac also opens up about the possibility of sequel to The Greatest Showman: “Hugh (Jackman) is working on all sorts of things including a one man show. What’s next? I don’t know but I hope there is a sequel.”

    I think from the trailers I’ve seen so far that this is a great project for Zac. He’s had a lot of praise from critics for his performance which is really positive. Plus it’s good to see him looking so healthy after his surgery. He really is beautiful. His girlfriend is a lucky lady to have him!
