Here’s a funny little tidbit about Zac Efron & Rebel Wilson from Buzzfeed! Super cute to read.
Buzzfeed: You’ve also been kissed on the cheek by Zac Efron and you were at a Lakers game together — and I must say, I’m extremely jealous because he’s my number-one crush.
RW: Oh, Zac Efron. Oh yeah, he’s very nice.
Buzzfeed: Are you guys friends?
RW: Yeah, like, we have each other’s numbers! But he’s busy — he’s about to do a movie called Townies with Seth Rogen. And he’s such a cool dude. Something people might not know about him is he’s a really good freestyle rapper. Like, really good. Like, he could go in and battle.
Buzzfeed: Would you guys ever rap together? You guys should do a rap single together.
RW: Yeah, that would be friggen sweet. (laughs) I remember when I met him, we were both guests on The Ellen Show and then I was rapping on that show and he kind of knew I could rap, and then he wanted to show me his rap skills — and he’s, like, really good. Like, I’m not exaggerating. He must practice.
Hey everyone.. I just put up a new look on the site, and I hope everyone loves it. I’m trying to get back in the routine of updating the site several times a week, so I hope you will be sure to check back often. I’m fixing to post some photos of Zac at SXSW this week, so be sure to keep an eye out for those.
I’ve read several reports today from upandcomers.net and hollywoodreporter.com saying that Zac Efron is no longer tied to “This is Where I Leave You”. THR is reporting that “Girls” star Adam Driver is in talks to join Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Kathryn Hahn and Corey Stoll in Shawn Levy’s family comedy. The role was originally created for Zac, and its not clear why Zac can no longer do it. I’ll update if I get any more news!
Backstage.com has posted an update about the Seth Rogen and Zac Efron Comedy “Townies”. I’m super excited that Zac is going to be doing a comedy soon. Here’s the new info:
*NEW Townies (Comedy) A family man attempts to deal with an obnoxious fraternity whose members are causing him grief. With Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Directed by Nicholas Stoller. Casting: Francine Maisler, 10202 W. Washington Blvd., Poitier Bldg., Ste. 3200, Culver City, CA 90232. Shoots in April in Los Angeles.
Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden have joined the cast of “Parkland“, the indie drama about the assassination of John F. Kennedy that will mark the directorial debut of scribe Peter Landesman.
Efron will portray Dr. Charles Carrico, a surgeon at Parkland Memorial Hospital, where Kennedy was rushed on Nov. 22, 1963, and later pronounced dead. Harden has signed on to play the part of emergency room nurse Doris Mae Nelson.
Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton and Jacki Weaver came onboard the project during AFM in late October.
Variety first reported on Aug. 16 that Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman were producing “Parkland.” Exclusive Media came onboard in October to produce and finance.
Pic chronicles the events leading up to JFK’s assassination and Abraham Zapruder’s famous documentation of the event.
As part of the production deal, Exclusive Media optioned the rights to the book that provides the source material for the film, “Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy” by former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi. The work was published in 2007 by W.W. Norton & Co. and won the 2008 Edgar Award for best fact crime.
Landesman is adapting the screenplay. The film, to be shot in Austin, Texas, is being planned for a 2013 U.S. theatrical release to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
Exclusive Media’s Matt Jackson will oversee the production on behalf of the company, and Exclusive Media is handling worldwide distribution rights to the movie, which was introduced to buyers at AFM.
Efron was recently seen in “The Paperboy” and “The Lucky One” and will appear next in Sony Classics’ “At Any Price” with Dennis Quaid. “At Any Price” is being repped internationally by Exclusive Media.
Efron is currently shooting “Are We Officially Dating” in New York City.
Zac Efron was photographed on the set of “Are We Officially Dating?” in New York City on Saturday afternoon (December 15th). I’m super excited to see Zac getting back to work, really looking forward to more On Set photos!
