5 Actors Zac Efron Could Follow

Zac Efron Signs On For Two New Projects

Zac Efron has been looking to break out of the High School Musical mold lately by picking some more grown-up roles. Today comes news of his two latest projects: first, he's signed on to star in Fire, based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis, and he also has another project lined up, called Algorithm. Efron has been trying to make a move to more serious fare, like last Fall's Me and Orson Welles, and I'm wondering if he'll be able to make an easy transition out of the 'tween spectrum and into more legitimate movie star territory. Many have tried to make a similar leap, so for fun, here are five actors whose footsteps Efron could very easily follow in, for better . . . or for worse.
