While the whole strip club thing could have been a calculated move I feel like it was probably something he wanted to experience. Not every part of his life is lived to further his career . . . at least I hope not. Jimmy has an audience to appeal to also and to show the mushy stuff they've been showing on the promo tour wouldn't really work for his audience. The strip club thing came up and that of course was a better direction.

On the Nicholas Sparks thing, give the kid a break. We all know he's capable of much better. While I am a fan of Sparks books I agree that the movie versions are typically lacking. However knowing this story I can see why it might appeal to Zac. The main character has a highly trained dog that is with him through the entire thing. Not since Derby Stalion have we seen him interact with animals and we haven't seen it on the big screen yet. Maybe he's looking at that being a good learning experience. It could be as simple as Mom or Grandma enjoy Sparks and wanted him to do it. Tom Hanks did many romantic type movies (some worked, some flopped) and it didn't seem to hold him back at all. It just seems very unfair to be so critical when as far as I can tell you don't know the story or the experience of the character. Coming from my angle I can see why this particular story would be something Zac would think he could work with and learn from. It's just possible that Zac's talent will bring a new level of expectation to a Sparks film - if the rumors are even true that he's ready to sign on to the film.

ia with most of this... except that he puts out there how careful he is and how like homebody he is to sell his movie to the religious groups and mom bloggers then he does this? idk it's kind of grossly hypocritical to act like you are superior to sell a movie and then do this (whether it happened or is just planted info as a stunt) and it's not his only hypocritical thing.

and i think the thing is about the project choices, not only is it that he deserves better it is that you can only be in so many bad (rly bad) movies at the beginning of your career before no one takes you seriously no matter how good you are.

too often i haven't said anything because i wanted to wait it out and see where it went but it just seems like questionable move after questionable move. i love zac and i want the best for him but i see these things as very dangerous to his career.

i really think and hope tom hanks is the most analagous to his career not just because i love tom hanks in general but because i love his career... that he could do comedy and drama and still stay a mostly normal person. i would love that for zac. but the climate right now for a career is much different than it was at the beginning of tom's career. so i worry.

I don't think he puts it out there to sell the movie. I think he puts it out there because it's true. But I don't think doing this makes that point any less true. You can be a homebody and be curious to do something once, just to know what it's like. It's not like he's making it a habit, you know?

Has it even been for sure confirmed that he's doing that movie? I thought it was just a rumor?

Wait... reading fail. If I had gotten to the last sentence before I typed. Ooops!
