Zac Efron in ‘actually quite a good actor’ shock!

Don't fancy yours much

Picture the scene: us at a preview screening of Me and Orson Welles, sitting right up front ready, willing and more than able to laugh our summer-lite socks off at the acting ‘skills’ of one Zac Efron. Not only is he starring in a clever film – by Richard Linklater who did the beyond genius Before Sunset – but he is surrounded by actors of the calibre of Ben Chaplin and Clare Danes. How we were ready to snicker!

But no siree Bob. Nothing funny here. Move on if you’re looking for a laugh. Not only is the film charming enough to have your knickers off in ten minutes (a made-up drama about someone working with actor/director/arsehole Orson Welles), Mr. Efron has his Johnny Depp moment. You know where right before your eyes he is transformed from telly puppet to real life proper actor who’s going to have a long career and then go out with a supermodel before marrying a French singer.

The only fly in the ointment we can see is that Zac’s fan-base of smelly knickered teen tarts will hate it. But then, maybe that was the idea. Oh, and this picture here is from something else altogether. We just thought you might like that instead of chunky knits.

See the trailer over the jump…

  1. Go and see it I would… shame I find Zac Efron box-office poison. And telly-box poison.

  2. I heart Ben Chaplin. Espesh as the original Matthew in Game On. Oh, how he featured in my teenage dreams.

  3. I think his teen fan-base will love it! He stars in it, sings in it and gets all loved up and romantic – what’s not for them to like?!!

    From what I’ve seen this film looks really unique. I can’t wait for it’s release!

  4. Thanks for the review, but I think you under-estimate his fans… most of us are indeed in our 20’s and professional women. I’ve ran a Zac fansite since before he was this huge star, and I’ve gotten hundreds of emails from all over the world of women in their 40’s-50’s who appreciate Zac. So just so you know, its not just teens! And I look forward to seeing the movie, I know I’m going to love it.
