Zac Efron hit the red carpet at The Lucky One premiere in Melbourne today with his lovely costar Taylor Schilling. Australian fans went wild for Zac at yesterday's premiere in Sydney, where he joked about sharing his hotel with Rihanna. Rihanna and Zac spent time relaxing on the balcony of their respective suites. Rihanna snapped photos of the picturesque scenery while Zac took off his shirt and flashed his well toned abs. Zac's stay Down Under is winding down, and he's expected back in the States this weekend for additional press prior to Monday's star-studded LA screening.
Zac Efron can act, people! Okay, so he's not going to win an Oscar for his performance in Me and Orson Welles, but he does take a step away from the tween territory of High School Musical and 17 Again to prove that he can hold his own among more experienced performers.
Efron stars as the "Me" in Me and Orson Welles, an over confident aspiring young actor named Richard whose only prior work includes a couple of high school productions — until he lucks into a bit part in Welles's stage production of Julius Caesar. Richard has a romanticized view of theater, but once he enters Welles's company, he's forced to learn the real nature of what goes on behind the scenes.
