Me and Orson Welles Zac Efron

Me and Orson Welles What do Troy Bolton and Link Larkin have in common? They're both Richard Samuels in Zac Efron's new movie 'Me and Orson Welles'. "It is a coming of age story about this guy who talks his way into an adaptation of Orson Welles' Julius Caesar at New York's Mercury Theater. It's a look in the life of Orson Welles at that moment," noted Efron who's looking to move beyond the teenage persona of High School Musical 3 fame.

Although the character, Richard, is primarily fiction, director Richard Linklater noted that there was a young man in Orson Welles life who was involved in a production of Julius Caeser that he produced. "So much of this did happen. It's based in history but technically fiction," said Linklater. The script is based on an actual novel with the same title written by Robert Kaplow. Linklater has also directed such movies as 'Dazed and Confused' and 'School of Rock.'

With so much awareness of Orson Welles being promoted by the movie, Film Education in the UK has put together a study guide for 'Me and Orson Welles' that explores in detail the historical background of the film and the different ideas it contains.

It features study materials and film clips designed to stimulate debate, discussion and reflection on Orson Welles, Shakespeare, performance, theatrical production and filmmaking.

The study guide addresses core elements of learning in English, Media, Film and Theatre Studies. The materials are most suitable for students aged 14-18.

Zac Efron - His Career, Relationship and More

Zac EfronIs it possible that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are still as strong a relationship as ever? No, reports US Magazine. They noted that the over three year relationship was soon to come to an end even though insiders report this to be false.

"Things are going well with them. And they are both happy," reports an insider. "They spent months together up in Vancouver, where they are both filming movies."

In a recent interview, Zac Efron noted "I'm doing the same things as my friends in college – working, studying, trying to have fun whenever possible but usually getting pulled back into work". When asked about recent competition with Robert Patterson he said, "It's great because now I don't get so much female attention."

Currently working on the film 'The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud' Efron feels that moving on from High School Musical 3 fame to a career like Leonardo DiCaprio would be great. "I was dead set against the guy when I was growing up, kind of force-fed his image from Titanic....Since then, through very hard work and incredible performances, he's done a complete 180 turn."

Ashley Tisdale Talks About Her Future

The Associated Press (AP) recently interviewed Ashley Tisdale about her recent projects, star pressure, image, and future in High School Musical. She recently premiered the movie 'Aliens in the Attic' but feels the need to stay the course with her HSM3 fans.

Ashley TisdaleCreating a new character in different projects has its challenges, "I wouldn't be there if it wasn't for those projects, but I feel that dyeing my hair back to its original hair color, this is originally what I look like ... and it does separate me from that, in a way, because everybody really knows me as the blond bubbly character, and this is a different side."

Ashley seems to keep the focus on staying in her usual roles, "I'm not someone who is going to do a 180. If anything, I know I look young, so I’m still going to be in high school (in movies), but I think the projects would have to be a little bit more mature if it’s in a high school environment. ... I’m really into comedy, and I love making people laugh, so I will definitely go in that direction for a little bit, and then maybe some drama, because I love drama, as well, and people haven’t seen me do drama ... but I’m not going too dark yet — that’s not me."

Zac Efron, Megan Fox and New Hair

Zac Efron may be trying to move himself away from the teen hearthrob image to some a bit more serious. Is it the roles he wants - or, perhaps a new, sexy girlfriend, Megan Fox!

Megan FoxZac has been spotted with Megan at a cozy dinner where a source told Celebuzz: "They were very friendly and their faces were close when they talked."

The San Francisco Chronicle also reported that Zac will be starring in a new thriller written by the same pen as the 'Thomas Crown Affair'.

'High School Musical' seems to have become just too innocent for him - even getting him to change his hair and his girlfriend.

Time will tell....

Ashley Tisdale - Guilty Pleasure Coming in June

Ashley Tisdale has a new CD coming in June called "Guilty Pleasure" and was featured in Twist Magazine - here's what she had to say about her new video: "We shot the video from like three in the afternoon until seven in the morning! They even brought Coffee Bean mix so I could stay up to shoot. I was so excited though. Adam Gregory from 90210 plays my ex-boyfriend who cheats on me, poor guy! He's a really nice guy in real life. My friends think he's adorable and obviously he's very cute. The video's all about getting the best revenge on a guy who cheats on you. So in the video, he leaves his house and I get the hideaway key, so I go into his house. And then I let people in and I have this party at his house and everyone's throwing things — and there's also these gorgeous Brazilian male models and I'm taking pictures with them! And then I have this huge rock out performance in the pool where it's like my whole band's in the pool on platforms. It was really exciting."

Ashley Tisdale - I Want It All

"Ashley's my girl," says director Kenny Ortega. "She's just one in a million. I think Ashley is a classic in the making. I think she can deliver on many, many levels. She's just a fun spirit."

Kenny Ortega talked about the big production number called "I Want It All." "The song is Sharpay's version of how she sees the school in her fantasy world," says Ortega. "We’re all blinged out. We're colorful. Everything's totally different."

"It's the biggest musical number for me," says Tisdale. "Sharpay wants the Juilliard scholarship and she wants to use her brother to get it. The song itself is very Fergie/Gwen Stefani meets Sharpay Evans. I love it."

Zac Efron Walks from Footloose

Why oh why would Paramount let Zac Efron walk from the remake of "Footloose"? Hard to know the inner workings of the production company execs - Zac Efronbut, Zac is gone and the film lives on. Some insiders say that Zac was too tired making yet another musical that is supposed to be directed by Kenny Ortega (is he still directing the project?)

The studio had this to say: "Footloose is a project we've longed to see re-booted for a new generation. While Zac is no longer attached, we remain excited and committed to the collective brain trust of Kenny Ortega, Neil Meron and Craig Zaden, who will reinvigorate the franchise. Their fresh take on the film will undoubtedly be filled with the same kind of breakout performances that we've come to expect from them."

Zac just completed "Me and Orsen Wells" with Claire Daines.

High School Musical 4 Announced!

Can it be true??!? Yes, today Disney announced that 'High School Muscial 4' is coming in 2010 with a brand new cast. With the graduation of Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay and Ryan it is time for a new set of students.

Hopefully, with the signing of the screenwriter from the past movies, Peter Barscocchini, HSM4 will be just as good as the past. The tentative plot will have the East High Wildcats fighting a rivalry with the West High Knights - good material for some great love relationships.

I didn't see any information on Kenny Ortega directing, however. If not, this could be a fast ending to the HSM franchise. But, it is still very exciting. Stay tuned for more info!

Zac Efron, Justin Timberlake and Robert Pattinson?

Zac EfronCould three of the hottest young actors get together for something that no one expected? How about Zac Efron from High School Musical and maybe just a bit of Justin Timberlake - and, well, then add vampire fav Robert Pattinson to the mix and now you have a future movie!

Put them in a historical drama about Kent State University during the 1970's Vietnam protests and now you have a release called 'Ohio'. According to Star Magazine - "Everyone in the industry is shocked that Rob is already getting such big roles. Zac and Justin have been working for a lot longer than he has. There is a bit of jealousy there. Zac’s people want him to have the lead. And Justin’s people have asked that he get a lot of screen time."

There is no scheduled release date yet for 'Ohio'. Stay tuned!
