I think he's gotten to the point where he can pull of the rugged look because he doesn't look like a little boy anymore.

Me LIKEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Male audiences hate him because they only know him as "the girly guy from the gay musical". >:( Hopefully TLO changes their and Hollywood producers' prejudice against him and helps him to get amazing roles. I think Warners might feel reluctant to push Snabba Cash and Art of the Steal at the moment, but once Zac proves himself as an effective grown-up leading man, things will pick up fast. He's definitely got the talent and charisma(a lot of critics agree that he has a bright future as the new Hollywood leading man) so the only thing he needs is an opportunity. I'm excited about TLO (and the sex scenes lol) but what excites me more is what it will do to his career.

Well the only way he's going to be able to prove himself is if someone gives him a chance. :) I hope TLO, The Paper Boy, and the untitled movie do that for him, because I agree, he could have an amazing future in Hollywood.

Didn't this kinda happen to Leo also? Where people just saw him as that pretty boy, and then someone took a chance on him and cast him in a different type of role? I don't remember exactly as I was kinda young when Leo was the "thing" with teenage girls.

People started to see Leo as a serious actor when Martin Scorsese took him under his wing. He was already an Oscar nominee before he starred in Titanic though.

Yeah, Leo had a better plan: (1) earn street creds, (2) star in blockbuster. Zac did it ass-backward, with the (musical!) blockbuster first, and he's been trying to escape the resulting celebrity ever since. Boy am I glad he skipped on Footloose.

Unfortunately, there won't be a male audience for TLO, a mushy love story, except for the guys that are dragged there by their girlfriends, which will give them another reason to hate Zac Efron.

I do see TLO as his first totally adult role, which is good; but I think The Paperboy and the Untitled Bahrani Project show that producers and directors are already willing to sign Zac for their projects. The insiders know that he's good to work with and can deliver the goods; that fabled Male Audience will remains elusive until he does some hard-action stuff.

Men won't voluntarily go see TLO but they may see its commercials on TV and realize he can play a manly guy just fine. No one would've thought Zac Efron could play a Marine!

I think producers and directors know that Zac is a talented and hard-working actor, but they're hesitant to cast him in big budget studio movies because of his pretty boy image. While I'm fine with Zac doing good indies, I see him more of movie star material than indie favorite so I hope TLO can help him get big studio projects.

"Men won't voluntarily go see TLO but they may see its commercials on TV"

Lordy, I hope there are commercials on TV. More likely, the guys will see it on cable while flipping channels. They may not watch the whole thing, but they'll get the idea. (And maybe some of them, when they're all alone at night, WILL watch the whole thing and, heehee, like it.)

Speaking of commercials, I'm seeing 30-second spots for NYE every evening now, as I recline in torpid ease before the television set. Go, Warner Bros./New Line!

Oh, I should have added "or gross-out comedies". The Seth Rogen project could do a lot of good. Sullied Zac will be much more popular with the young male crowd than Loverboy Zac.

I know things don't look very good surrounding TLO as of now, but even if it doesn't perform well critically and financially, it can still help people to see him in a different light.

By the way, Warners didn't release TLO trailer in front of Breaking Dawn after all. How stupid of them. >:(

Well they might have thought "Twilight movie, then Hunger Games trailer, then Zac Efron movie = too many young stars for people to see in one night.
