The Disaster Artist
The Disaster Artist premiered in SXSW and got great feedback and reviews so far.
Zac role is very small so he's not mentioned in all reviews (plus there are only a handful of festival reviews so far) but here are a few examples...
James Franco, meanwhile, makes for a terrific double threat. While he’s clearly having a blast in the role of his career, he’s also a generous director who gives his all-star ensemble — which also includes the likes of Judd Apatow, Megan Mullally, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Bryan Cranston and Jacki Weaver — ample opportunity to shine.
An unrecognizable Zac Efron plays the over-actor responsible for playing menacing gangster Chris-R in “The Room.”
It’s the smaller cameo roles like Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Jacki Weaver, and Nathan Fillion in particular that take the film to another level that’s at times befitting of the film’s former title The Masterpiece.
There is also much fun to be had in spotting the countless cameos along the way, the funniest being Zac Efron, who plays the ‘actor’ who plays the intimidating roughneck with the humorously non-frightening name; Chris R. Who is the other Chris warranting a last name initial distinction?
The supporting cast is great, from those playing people fans of The Room will recognize like Josh Hutcherson as Philip Haldiman (Denny), Zac Efron as Dan Janjigian (Chris-R), Jacki Weaver as Carolyn Minnot (Lisa's mom) and Nathan Fielder as Kyle Vogt (Peter) to those playing people behind the scenes, like Seth Rogen as Script Supervisor Sandy Schklair, Jason Mantzoukas as one of the camera rental people and pretty much anybody that's funny in a walk on.
The Disaster Artist packs a surprisingly emotional punch. It also accounts for the film’s insane supporting cast, which is one of the best ensembles the medium has seen in years. Seth Rogen, Zach Efron, Alison Brie, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Judd Apatow, Hannibal Buress, Jacki weaver and countless others weave in and out of the story as various important pieces in the puzzle.
Happy birthday @Simone_Biles!! Hope you're having an incredible day! 🎉🎂🎉— Zac Efron (@ZacEfron) March 14, 2017
