Article about filming at Rockingham  
From Richmond County Daily Journal:
Tween idol, Zac Efron, and Hollywood long-timer, Dennis Quaid, spent last weekend in Rockingham at “The Rock” learning to handle a race car and wrapping up filming on their latest flick...

The former Disney star learned to drive like a pro at Rockingham Speedway this past weekend, through the Fast Track Driving School.

“The crew was in Richmond County over the weekend, and I’ve heard that the actors were spotted around town when they weren’t on set at the track,” said Robert Ingraham, director of operations at the speedway.

Speedway owner and former NASCAR driver Andy Hillenburg served as lead stunt coordinator, according to Ingraham.

Fast Track Driving School provided the cars and expertise needed to film the last segment of the movie.

So, if you thought you saw famous faces from the big screen hanging around town last weekend, chances are you were probably right.

I'm sort of surprised Dennis was apparently there, did not expect that, lol.

Ugh. Even in a story this short, we get both "tween idol" and "former Disney star." At least they added "former," I guess that's progress.

"The former Disney star learned to drive like a pro at Rockingham Speedway this past weekend, through the Fast Track Driving School."

So I'm hoping Zac got to drive the race car a little bit even it was just for fun.

Sounds like he might still be in NC.

That's a fun way to spend your 24th birthday LOL (:

Haha.But I think he might have gone there today. When I posted before she had posted that on twitter an hour before I posted it here. So I think he went there today.

But I kinda wonder WHY he'd go to some random kindegarden class. O_o

I understand it was today, but like 24 years olds don't go visit Kindergarten classes after their birthdays, so that must have been SOME kindergarten class. UNLESS it was someone who looked like Zac because how would a five year old know who Zac is, unless they have an older sister who is a fan. That does seem like an odd, yet cute, place to go.

I wish I was five years old, and in kindergarten.

Oh okay gotcha. My little sis knew who Zac was at 5 because she was a fan of the HSM movies, but I see what you mean.

Damn I wish I was a 5 year old also ahah. Kids always get to best things damnit. :(

I hope he had fun with the little kids if that sighting is in fact true.

It would be DAMN CUTE if it does turn out to be true......and really random lol.

Maybe he was like delivering supplies or something. Or reading to the kids.

Either way, if true, adorable and random

This is kinda confusing now haha.

"Having the best time in #London with @JustinNappi , Zac and the crew and its good to see @mikehellertr in my town."

Does that mean Zac's in London now? O_o

I'm confused now....

I think its another case of Zac's ability to be in two places at once. He's the only guy I've seen that is able to do it. Don't know how he does, but he pulls off being on opposite sides of the world so well.
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 20th, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Just when I thought I MAY know where Zac is, I don't.
abigail80831: pic#113712706abigail80831 on October 20th, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
Instead of "where's Waldo" its "where's Zac." He can pop up ANYPLACE and in more then one place at a time haha.

I wish I had that power. I always knew there was something "different" about Zac. Now atleast we know what his super power is. ;)

Interesting side note, the guy who tweeted the London thing is one of the producers on the Bahrani film
abigail80831: pic#113712706abigail80831 on October 20th, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)
That's why I posted it. I just can't figure out WHY he'd be in London. I'd guess it would be for work. Doesn't seem like the type of place he'd just randomly go.
kleth on October 20th, 2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
The tweet said "and the crew." Why would the producer fly Zac and the whole damned crew to London, England? Is their a London, North Carolina? Or is London the name of a restaurant or similar facility? Why is there a hash sign in front of #London? Was the kindergarten class in England too?

Twitter messages are short, why can't people make them clear?
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 20th, 2011 02:33 am (UTC)
So Zac's making new friends? YES!
It's a step up from certain guys who shall remain nameless.
abigail80831: pic#113712706abigail80831 on October 20th, 2011 02:35 am (UTC)
Lets hope so. I don't want to hate on his friends but............darn I REALLY don't like them. :(
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 20th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
I feel the same way.
The Writers Denmusewriter on October 20th, 2011 03:24 am (UTC)
Not that this probably has any significance if he is indeed in London, but there's a film festival going on there right now.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on October 20th, 2011 04:12 am (UTC)
idt it is a very big festival though if he is indeed there, maybe he'll check some cool films out.
kleth on October 20th, 2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
If he's with two producers from the film, maybe they have something in the film festival. And maybe Zac, producer-in-waiting, is getting something done for his production company, chatting up potential sources of finance, shmoozing talented young directors, etc. If not now, soon. We've got to get our heads around the fact that The Zeffer will be travelling for more than movie shooting and promo tours - at least, I hope. He's sure been slow getting any of his own projects off the ground.
The Writers Denmusewriter on October 20th, 2011 07:39 pm (UTC)
I hope so. I'd love to see some of his projects get off the ground soon, but I know things in development can take years and that's if they even happen at all
