THE PAPERBOY

ZAC EFRON (Jack Jansen) has proven to be one of Hollywood's most promising talents. Amassing an impressive body of work that encompasses film and television, Efron has received an array of accolades throughout his career including ShoWest's Breakthrough Performer of the Year award, the MTV Movie Awards for Breakthrough Performance (2008) and Best Male Performance (2009), as well as multiple Teen Choice and Kids' Choice Awards.

Efron stars in Josh Radnor's forthcoming drama Liberal Arts, alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Allison Janney, as well as Ramin Bahrani's At Any Price, which focuses on an enterprising farmer whose plans cause problems within his family. The drama co-stars Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham.

Efron was last seen in The Lucky One, a film adaption of a Nicholas Sparks novel that focuses on a Marine who travels to Louisiana after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war. Efron also voiced the lead character of Ted in the animated family film The Lorax. Ted is a 12-year-old boy who learns that he must find the Lorax in order to win over the girl of his dreams (voiced by Taylor Swift).

Previously Efron co-starred in Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel and Hilary Swank. The romantic comedy tells the story of several individuals whose lives intertwine over the course of New Year's Eve. Efron also starred in the drama Charlie St. Cloud, playing a young man who survives an accident that changes his outlook on life.

Additional film credits include 17 Again, opposite Matthew Perry and Leslie Mann, the Richard Linklater film Me and Orson Welles, and the box-office smash Hairspray, which won the Critics Choice Award for Best Ensemble.

Television credits include a recurring role on the WB series "Summerland" and guest-starring roles on "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," "ER," "The Guardian" and "CSI: Miami."

Efron became a household name with the launch of the 2006 Emmy Award -winning Disney Channel phenomenon "High School Musical." He reprised his role as Troy Bolton, captain of the basketball team, in "High School Musical 2," which broke cable TV records as it drew 17.5 million viewers. Efron also starred in High School Musical 3: Senior Year, a feature-film installment of the extremely successful franchise. The film set a box-office record with the highest-grossing opening weekend for a musical.

On stage Efron starred in the musical "Gypsy" and has appeared in productions of "Peter Pan," "Mame," "Little Shop of Horrors" and "The Music Man."

A native of the California central coast, the actor currently resides in Los Angeles. He recently hung out his own production shingle and has several film projects in development.
