THE GREATEST SHOWMAN

Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses both film and television, ZAC EFRON (Phillip Carlyle) has proven to be one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents. Efron recently co-starred opposite Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch, based off the popular TV show. He will soon be seen in The Disaster Artist, a dramedy directed by and starring James Franco about the making of Tommy Wiseau's The Room, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2017 South by Southwest Film Festival.

Last year, Efron starred in three hilarious comedies: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, a comedy with Adam Devine, which follows two brothers who place an ad on Craigslist to find dates for a wedding; Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the sequel to the comedy Neighbors, alongside Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Rose Byrne; and Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro.

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, head of the basketball team, in High School Musical 2, which broke cable TV records garnering 17.5 million viewers. Zac also 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 as the highest grossing opening weekend total for a musical.
