DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX

Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses film and television, ZAC EFRON (Ted) is one of Hollywood's most promising talents as his career continues to evolve with exciting and challenging projects. Efron received ShoWest's Breakthrough Performer of the Year Award; MTV Movie Awards for Breakthrough Performance (2008) and Best Male Performance (2009); and multiple Teen Choice and Kids' Choice awards.

Efron recently wrapped production on the Warner Bros.' film The Lucky One. A film adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel, The Lucky One tells the story of a marine who returns to North Carolina after serving in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war. It was directed by Scott Hicks and is slated for release in April 2012. He also recently finished working on The Paperboy, a film based on a reporter who returns to his hometown in Florida to investigate a death-row inmate case. Efron stars in the film alongside Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey.

More recently, Efron starred in Warner Bros.' New Year's Eve. The film, directed by Garry Marshall, tracks the lives of several couples and singles whose lives intertwine over the course of New Year's Eve. Efron also starred in Universal Pictures' Charlie St. Cloud, based on Ben Sherwood's acclaimed novel. The film is a romantic drama in which Efron stars as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way.

In 2009, Efron starred in two very different films. He starred in the Warner Bros. film 17 Again, a Biglike dramedy in which a 36-year-old man, in need of a major life do-over, wakes up in the body of a high school senior. The film opened No. 1 at the box office and also stars Matthew Perry and Leslie Mann. Efron also starred in the Richard Linklater film Me and Orson Welles, an adaptation of the period coming-of-age novel by Robert Kaplow. Efron portrays a high-school student who happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is then noticed by Orson Welles. He stars in the film alongside Ben Chaplin and Claire Danes, and it debuted to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Efron starred in the Disney feature film High School Musical 3: Senior Year, the third installment of the extremely successful High School Musical franchise. HSM3 set a box-office record with the highest-grossing opening-weekend total for a musical. He also starred alongside an all-star cast in the box-office smash summer film Hairspray, a film about an all-white American Bandstand-style television show that gets a soul infusion. The film won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble and the cast was also nominated for Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for its impressive work on the film.

Segueing effortlessly between the big and small screens, Efron quickly garnered attention and became the breakout star of the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel phenomenon High School Musical. He reprised his role as Troy Bolton, head of the basketball team, in High School Musical 2, which broke cable-TV records by garnering 17.5 million viewers. His other television credits include a recurring role on The WB series Summerland and guest-starring roles on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, ER, The Guardian and CSI: Miami. Additionally, Efron starred on stage in the musical Gypsy and has appeared in productions of Peter Pan, Mame, Little Shop of Horrors and The Music Man.

A native of Northern California, Efron currently resides in Los Angeles. He recently started his own production shingle and has several feature film projects in development.
