Zac is ranked #93 on Vulture's 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars of 2013 list. His Studio Value is measured 6 out of 10, and his Tabloid Value is 8 out of 10. His Likeability is 39%. Compared to last year, Zac's overall rank got lower this year, but he scored better in other departments. (In 2012, his rank was #87, Studio Value 5, Tabloid Value 7, Likeability 38%)

This is from this year's article:

Zac Efron
Can he move beyond his romantic niche?

Zac Efron has not been in a movie since 2012’s The Paperboy, but you would not know it from his Twitter mentions, which are astoundingly high and second only to Justin Timberlake’s on this list. It doesn’t take an Internet scientist to figure out why: Ever since he rose to fame with High School Musical, Efron has been a romantic idol of intense interest to a certain female demographic, and all of his exploits (including a recent stint in rehab) earn headlines and constant tweeting.

The problem is whether he can grow that fan base. Among adults, he has a low recognition score and even lower likability, and he hasn’t had much box-office success, either, unless you’re counting The Lorax. Has Efron taken too long to branch out from the romantic roles he’s known for? He’ll finally start putting his comic timing to better use in next year’s Seth Rogen comedy Neighbors and the bro-y rom-com That Awkward Moment; we’ll see if men are willing to come around to the actor, though that’s a tough row to hoe for romantic idols. (Just ask Taylor Lautner, who couldn’t persuade male audiences to turn out for his actioner Abduction.)

A little silly. They don't even mention At Any Price or Parkland.

But they're right about the adult audience. Don't know who he is, or don't care for him if they do.
