The boy who seemingly has it all, Zac Efron is now chasing a meatier role that will allow him to wave a weapon.
The “High School Musical” actor has notched up enough teen comedies and musicals.
Zac told GQ magazine “A guy I worked with recently told me, ‘You have to earn the right to hold a gun.’
“And that completely made sense. Can you imagine me running around with a gun in a film?
“I noticed the second I started that the things you want to be involved with are always just out of reach.”
He added: “Most parts you’d want people won’t really consider you for because you have to earn that respect.”
Meanwhile, Zac Efron keeps it cool as he backs out of a studio parking lot in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (April 22).
The 21-year-old actor and his 17 Again co-star Matthew Perry played 20 questions with each other on Max 60 Seconds. When Matt asked if he preferred Chuck or Sloth from his fave movie The Goonies, Zac replied, â€œHey You Guysâ€¦â€ Guess he couldnâ€™t decide!
Hollywood TV tweeted earlier tonight, â€œZac Efron just walked into Vanessa [Hudgens]â€™s houseâ€¦ Wonder what those lovebirds are up to behind closed doors?â€
