First Images Of Zac Efron In Richard Linklater's ME AND ORSON WELLES

Yes, this is indeed That Zac Efron, the one from Disney's High School Musical films, represented here on ScreenAnarchy because he's making his "serious" acting debut in Richard Linklater's Me And Orson Welles, soon to debut at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. Here's the skinny on the latest from the director of Dazed and Confused and School of Rock:

The story of a whirlwind week in 1937 NYC when a young aspiring actor (Efron) is thrown into the middle of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre Company on the eve of the opening of Welles' historic staging of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. During this week, Richard will find romance with a worldly older woman (Danes), become immersed in a creative experience few are afforded, and learn the downside of crossing the imperious, brilliant Welles (strikingly portrayed by newcomer Christian McKay). Richard is about to grow up FAST.

We've got a quartet of brand new images from the film - including a pair of Efron in character - which you'll find at the link below.

I thought HAIRSPRAY was his serious acting debut.

Sorry, I can't shake off his Hairspray/High School Musical acting, so I can't really look forward to this in any way.

Man, I have a horrible mental image for this film.
