Tag Archives: Orson Welles

Hey (pre-teen) Ladies!

TwitchFilm has the first photos of my main man, Zac Efron, in character as “Richard” in the upcoming Linklater flick “Me and Orson Welles”!

“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 (Claire 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.”

How fast? Fast enough to make him age-appropriate for a hypothetical 20-something blogger with a comprehensive knowledge of several High School Musical dance routines?

In a related matter, this morning a google ad asked me who was hotter, Zefron or the Jonas Brothers. Talk about a no-brainer! The Jonas Brothers don’t even actually exist! Psssht.
