Efron is Seventeen

08.17.2007
There is no doubt that Zac Efron is currently in the process of 'breaking out' Sure, he's already starred in the biggest made-for-TV movie ever, Disney's HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL, but other than tweens and their obedient parents, who's really heard of him? Now, not only has he had a role in the successful movie-musical HAIRSPRAY, not only has he joined the likes of John Lennon and Eminem as a Rolling Stone cover boy, but now EW.com is reporting that Efron has officially signed on for his first leading role in a feature film.

The movie is called SEVENTEEN, and it works as kind of a BIG in reverse. Efron will play a 36-year old man who wakes up in the body of a hot high school senior. The movie is being described as a 'dramedy' and will reunite Efron with his HAIRSPRAY director Adam Shankman, who's got only a producing role in this one.

I can't imagine how this will be done without being a little creepy. I'm imagining 36-year-old man gets transported into body of 17-year-old stud and then falls for 16-year-old girl. That translates to 36-year-old man in love with 16-year-old girl, doesn't? I'm guessing the screenwriters were able to work around this, otherwise the title could refer to the amount of time Efron's character does once he transforms back. Also, I doubt this would be the proper movie to introduce Efron to wider fanbase, as its being touted. It can be interesting to see how they pull this off.

Extra Tidbit: Efron used to get laughed at for the gap between his two front teeth. Who's laughing now, d*ckheads?

He tries really hard to come off like the new Jared Leto. Except he hasn't got the bad-boy hotness that "My So Called Life" cultivated for Leto. Good luck, but I don't foresee him getting Shia lucky.

Could be he has a daughter or son who could be in high school and needs to change back to their age to be closer or some shit.

It's more likely he'll fall for his 30-something year old teacher in the movie and they'll fall madly in love when he turns back into a 36 year old after he learns whatever important life lesson he has to learn to get his body back. Also, he'll probably befriend an outcast in school and ther will be a big dramatic moment when Efron turns back into a 36 year old and cant have the same kind of relationship with said outcast.

Gosh, I'm glad I've never seen a movie like this before.

Schmuck. It's lot easier to act something you've experienced than the opposite. Just something to keep in mind. I stick to my previous post. But I agree, 13 going on 30 was awful...and I didn't even see that.

I've never heard of this guy but talk about a CHALLENGE. If he makes us think he's 36 (writers have their work cut out for them), then you can put him at the top of the list of future Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Tom Hanks A-list actors. I definately will listen to reviews on this one and rent it on RedBox if they're good, but I won't waste my money on this unless my gf wants to drool for 2 hours. meh. Gotta cave to the chick flix every once in a while. How else do you get her to go see "30

switch which sex it focuses on and the direction of the age change and you've got 13 going on 30. which was a pretty awful movie, by the way.
