Zac Efron Heads Off to the Toronto Film Festival!

5 Sep

Heading off to the Toronto Film Festival, Zac Efron was spotted at LAX taking a flight to Canada from Los Angeles on Thursday (September 4).

The Disney hunk sported a striped v-neck t-shirt with jeans, sneakers and a beanie as he smilingly entered the airport and made his way past security.

In related news, Efron recently spoke out about growing famous through his role in the three movie series High School Musical.

The 20-year-old actor calls the experience bittersweet, saying: “You don’t realize until it’s gone, but it is so important to feel normal. I’m growing up under a magnifying glass, and I just try to rise above it and live my life. I’m not going to complain. But it’s something I’m learning to cope with.”

Efron will star in the third and final part of the High School Musical series next month. He plays a high school senior named Troy in the movie, alongside his co star and real life girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.

Of his character, Efron says: “The stakes are higher because there are real decisions to be made. What college are you going to? What happens to the girl? It’s fun watching Troy grow into a man!”

Along with HSM, Zac is also set to appear in two other box office releases, 17 Again, with Matthew Perry, and Me and Orson Welles, which is described as a period film.

What’s a period film???

Zac Efron Covers Teen Vogue Magazine!

3 Sep

The High School Musical 3: Senior Year actor, Zac Efron, covers the latest issue of Teen Vogue magazine.

He also chatted about his new movie 17 Again, which is supposed to be in theaters next year. “It was hard to play someone that I couldn’t relate to in the slightest. But the director taught me a lot about the art of acting, which I hadn’t been schooled in before. I’ve got a better understanding of what it means to be an actor now,” Zac told Teen Vogue.

And he also talked about his other feature film Me and Orson Welles: “I would never have, until now, called myself a movie buff. But I’ve found so many films that I never knew existed.”

Make sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of Teen Vogue, to get new photos of Zac from the magazine shoot, and more of the interview! 🙂

Zac Efron Talks About Playing Danny Zuko In a Grease Remake!

1 Sep

Zac Efron revealed he would love to take on John Travolta‘s role as Danny Zuko in a Grease remake. Zac said, “If John was involved I’d do it. But without his consent there’s no way I could ever attempt a role like that.”

That would totally be AWESOME!!! 😀

“That’s too hard, he’s just too cool. He’s a stud!,” Zac admitted that he would love to star in another musical after High School Musical‘s success. “I love musicals! I’ve noticed that various movie studios want to get involved with making musicals, and I think it’s great.”

We love musicals too!

“They’re making a comeback and so I think there should be more in the pipeline. Any time there’s a musical, I’m up for being on board,” Zac said.

We would love a Grease remake with Zac in it. What do y’all think???

Zac Efron: Out and About Making His Way to the Studio!

30 Aug

Going about his normal daily duties, Zac Efron was spotted out and about in Los Angeles, California a couple days ago (August 26), making his way into a studio.

And upon noticing the clamoring paparazzi trailing him, the Hairspray stud went from a walk to a gallop in an attempt to avoid being photographed.

Mr. Efron looked hunky in his white one-pocket t-shirt teamed with a pair of vintage wash belted skinny jeans with white slip-on flats and amber shades.

And we’re less than two months away from seeing Zac, along with Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, and Lucas Grabeel in High School Musical 3: Senior Year (it hits theatres October 24th).

Already out promoting the October 24th release of their new movie, Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale joined fellow HSM 3 stars at Disney’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year Ultimate Fan Pep Rally.

Held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday (August 23), Zac and Tizzie teamed up with pals like Chris Warren Jr., Kaycee Stroh and Olesya Rulin – with the group doing their best in pumping up an already ecstatic crowd.

The teen fans on-hand, 1000 of them to be precise, won their spot at the sing-a-long-version viewing, also getting in a sneak peek of HSM3.

As previously reported by The Teen Scoop, HSM 3 picks up with “Troy and Gabriella struggling with the idea of being separated from one another as college approaches. Along with the rest of the Wildcats, they stage a spring musical to address their experiences, hopes and fears about their future.”

New Photos of Zac Efron From His New Movie, Me and Orson Welles!

22 Aug

Zac Efron has left his squeaky-clean school boy image behind for a new movie role.

The High School Musical star is barely recognisable in newly-released shots from Me and Orson Welles, where he is seen sporting a more sophisticated attire for the period drama.

Zac said recently of his post-HSM plans, “I’m looking for something new and exciting to do. I want to do something dark or a comedy.”

“There’s tons of icons that I would love to work with on something new and exciting.”

In the upcoming movie Zac plays a 17-year old who is cast in a young Orson Welles‘ theatrical production of Julius Caesar in 1937.

We can’t wait to see this movie…and we don’t really know what it’s about…lol! 😀

Corbin Bleu Recording New Sophomore Album!

20 Aug

Corbin Bleu spoke with Billboard.com, about his new album that he’ll be recording, and he talked a little bit about High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

“There will be a lot of differences with the second album,” Bleu says. “First of all, it’s just more personal. I’m involved in every aspect of the writing. As far as the direction of the music, it’s very different. I wanted this album to have something that was a little bit of rock, a little bit of R&B and a little bit of pop.”

“The R&B has wonderful rhythms and beats,” he continues. “I’m a dancer, and when I perform live I love to dance. So I have to make sure it has that nice kicking bass. The pop sound is to make it a little bit more now, and when it comes to the rock, it makes it very live feeling, very instrumental. I listen to a lot of music like classic rock, alternative, hip-hop, classical, jazz, whatever. So I’m very musical and like to be able to incorporate that into my music as well.”

Bleu, 19, said producer Eric Hudson (Kanye West) is attached to the majority of the project, along with songwriter/lyricist Claude Kelly. So far all three have collaborated on material. Unreleased songs already getting stage time include the ballad “Close,” the anthemic rock track “Whatever It Takes” and the R&B-leaning “Champion.” The currently untitled album is due out in February 2009 via Hollywood Records.

Looking ahead to the Oct. 24 feature film release of High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Bleu hints fans can expect big numbers.

“(Director) Kenny Ortega, when he has a bigger budget, he’s going to go for it,” Bleu says. “So we have really huge numbers and a lot of different dance genres including cha-cha-cha and breakdancing. We even have a Bob Fosse tribute. Zac (Efron) and I have a really cool duet called ‘The Boys are Back.'”

Cool! We can’t wait to hear some new material from Corbin! 🙂
