Zac Efron, now a 26 year old man, first appeared on televisions across the globe when he was just a boy. He began his journey toward the big screen at the age of 11, when his parents took note of his singing ability. His first performances where on stage, in a variety of musicals before he progressed to guest appearances on TV. The guest spots turned into leading roles in a few short years. Shortly thereafter, Efron made his way to starring in popular teenage hits like High School Musical and The Suite Life of Zach and Cody.
With his sweet smile and sultry eyes, Efron continued to land roles in movies. 17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud, and The Lucky One were mainstream hits with Efron playing the lead male part. Amidst these hits he also participated in the production of some independent films such as The Derby Stallion and Me and Orson Welles. Zac continues to act today, as well as run a production company of his own.
Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Productions is the name of the company Efron owns. His partners in crime in this affair include Jason Barrett and Michael Simkin. The company was founded in 2010. It is based out of Los Angeles and is managed under Warner Bros. Studios with a first look sort of deal. NRW works primarily with Warner Bros. but also has projects with Universal and is producing products for the independent market. Efron, like his company, is a California native. Born in San Luis Obispo he continues to reside in CA today.
Zac Efron is starring along side Seth Rogen in the new comedy Neighbors. The film appears to be a battle of the boys, with Rogen playing a married young father and Efron a fraternity member. The trailer alone has enough laughter to bring tears and also reveals a very beefy glimpse of Efron shirtless. There appears to be a little something to tickle the giggle box in everybody in this film, with a hint of a rubber “red rocket” sword fight included.
Efron had been rumored to be in another fighting filled film, the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. Today when J.J. Abrams announced casting for the film, rumors were discredited as he was not among the members. He had playfully teased and never disputed the rumors until the official release today.
The Star Wars rumor was not the first to circulate about Efron. There was talk of him starting his own clothing line. This was also not true. He does however do endorsing for Penshoppe, a clothing company based in the Philippines. There are some truths mixed in with the tales too. One being that Zac’s favorite article of clothing is his Gucci aviators, which were given to him as a gift and are one of his favorite presents ever.
A few other interesting facts about the sexy man that is Zac Efron include his love for cars and ethnic food. He works on his hand-me down Delorean and ’65 Mustang convertible for fun. His dream car is a Toyota Supra and his favorite food is orange chicken and sushi (so for those women looking to make a good impression roll up to him in a clean Supra with sushi in the passenger seat and see what happens).
Having grown up in the lime light, a handsome man soon to play a frat boy in his upcoming movie Zac Efron, is an artist to keep your eye on. He has acted in films that range from tear jerking dramas to comedies. He appears to be driven and his career continues to gain momentum with age. Like his favorite actors, which include Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Johnny Depp, he is the leading role in many women’s fantasies.
