Zac Efron to play a college Donnie Brasco in Narc for Fox

The last time we saw Zac Efron he was doing curious and unsightly things to Nicole Kidman in THE PAPERBOY. Well, unless you caught a viewing of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL over the weekend.

Personally, I like Efron. Not because he's dreamy (shut it, I don't judge you), but he's actually a decent actor and not a bad guy. You might consider 17 AGAIN a mundane film, however that was the first time I saw something more in him than he was being given credit for. I'm not the only one who feels this way either. Maybe you noticed it in ME & ORSON WELLES. If you still aren't impressed, perhaps he will shine more in NARC.

The true crime project will star Efron as, "an all-American college student who was a big man on campus. He was the president of his fraternity and captain of his lacrosse team but got busted by local police when he was caught with some cocaine he was going to distribute at a party. The police offered him a deal in which he would not be arrested if he became an undercover informant. The student then ended up living a secret double life while in college, wearing wiretaps and eventually putting away big-time criminals."

The flick is being described as a "college Donnie Brasco". It's being said that Fox is using a scribe from their writing program to pen the script.

The only Narc I know is one that features Ray Liotta in possibly his greatest performance ever and a very underrated Jason Patric. That film owned. It's too bad more people don't know about it.

I'll probably get a lot of thumbs down for this. But I think Efron is a great actor. True he hasn't been in anything too magnificent. But 17 Again was a good movie, for what it is, a teen comedy, it was a fun movie. Me and Orson Welles was great too! Really the only movie aside from High School Musical that's sucked is Charlie St. Cloud and he even managed to showcase some real range as an actor in that movie too. I haven't seen Paperboy, but I think he's beyond trying to break out of the

I haven't seen Paperboy, but I think he's beyond trying to break out of the teen heartthrob roles and is well into credible acting territory. That being said, with any movie, I'll wait for a trailer to say if I want to see it.

I kinda like him also, he hasn't done anything too impressive, but then again he hasnt sucked.

Still the best parts of "17 Again" and "Me and Orson Welles" is still Thomas Lennon and Christian McKay (respectively)

McKay was spot on for Orson Welles, i want to see more of him

I'm surprised he isn't doing more comedy

he actually had some good lines in 17 AGAIN (shame the movie sucked) but he has good rhythm and no one doubts his charisma. I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude with this show.
