Zac Efron Worships Orson Welles

Just Jared reports that upcoming hunk Zac Efron is considering “Me and Orson Welles” as one of his next projects.

If agreed, Zac would play 17-year-old Richard Samuels whose theatrical dreams are answered when Orson Welles offers him a small role in his Broadway debut of “Julius Caesar” in the 1930’s.

Earlier this week, the “Hairspray” and “High School Musical” star landed his first leading-man role in fast-tracked love story “Seventeen.”

Meanwhile the premiere of the “High School Musical” sequel on the Disney Channel on Friday night drew a record breaking 17.24 million viewers, making it the most-watched basic cable telecast of all time and the most watched program on television since the season finale of Fox’s “House.”
