Zac at ShoWest 2009 Awards Show  
Zac was honored at ShoWest with the 2009 Breakthrough Performer of the Year:



























From USA Today:

For Zac Efron, ShoWest's breakthrough performer of the year, the only injury to worry about is at the box office.

"I really wanted to come here and meet the people who run the theaters," says Efron, who next stars in the comedy 17 Again, opening April 17. "These are the people who really help decide how successful your career is."


Zac also talked to EW about Footloose some more (nothing really new though they say it is an exclusive lol):

In about as polite a manner as he could muster, teenage heartthrob Zac Efron confessed to EW.com why he said no to the Footloose remake: He didn't want to be type-cast as the musical guy. In Las Vegas to receive the Showest Breakthrough Performer of the Year award, Efron confirmed what many in the industry had speculated. "I'm sure Footloose would have been a huge challenge," Efron said, "but the actors that I love and the actors that work really hard in this industry are always shaking things up, trying new genres, acquiring new skill sets. That's what's always going to appeal to me: the unknown." So Efron's trading in those dancing shoes for a shovel in The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud at Universal. Reuniting with 17 Again director Burr Stears, Efron will play a young man who takes a job as a cemetery caretaker where his younger brother has recently been buried. He has weekly meetings with his deceased sibling and begins a romantic relationship with a young woman believed to be missing in a sailing accident. He's not sure if she is real or an apparition.

Am I the only one that thinks the "I don't want to do musicals right now" thing is a cop out for "The script sucked and I got a better offer"? Cause that's what its sure sounding like to me.

honestly, he never really seemed into the project. He always avoided the issue, and it came from a place of apprehension not secrecy.

here you go.

:)

There is a whole bunch of raw bts footage too but I'm not sure when that'll get released. We're waiting for that to pop up everywhere else (if it does) cause it kind of spoils a lot of the movie.

I'll have to wait for HQ pics to be sure, but doesn't it look like the award says 2006?



Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on April 3rd, 2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
Can I just say I love the cattiness Adam is giving Zac during the lightsaber fight. :)


Are you gonna be mad at me for looking out for you? I want you to do your best.

...I might slice off an appendage.

Oh great. Pick one.

Why does the award say Showest 2006???
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on April 3rd, 2009 06:07 pm (UTC)
glamour_addict was wondering the same thing.

maybe due to the economy they are saving money by reusing old statues. lol.

i think he looked pretty hot last night!!!!!

the hair was ok, i totally prefer it the way he wore it in london, or at the oscars, but it still wasn't too bad IMO. i loved the suit, color looks great on him!!!!

and i loved the EW article.....he articulates himself very well, yet he never openly disparages anyone/anything....

and i agree with Bee's comments earlier. i think he's committed himself to NOT do musicals anytime soon.
bettybaby63bettybaby63 on April 3rd, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
holy shit it does say 2006, maybe its just a dummy one??? you would think though that since the award was known in advance, it would be the one he actually takes home?
Shruticalcified on April 3rd, 2009 07:44 pm (UTC)
LOL damn you, now I've started Twitter searching them all the time and feel like such a creeper.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on April 3rd, 2009 07:54 pm (UTC)
i only feel creepy when someone says where he is. other than that i'm just amused by people talking about their zac efron socks and their random dreams about him. lol.

He looks pale or something, I can't figure it out. Maybe it's just the camera flashes but something looks off to me.

someone on ontd mentioned this too.

I still think he needs a haircut...if I were I'd guy I know I'd have short hair just because I hate dealing with mine all the time. He looks good though.
