Zac Efron: Me & Orson Welles First Look!

Zac Efron holds on tight to costar Claire Danes in this first look at their period film, Me & Orson Welles (via People).

Me & Orson Welles involves a teenager (Efron) hired to star in an Orson Welles (Christian McKay) production of “Julius Caesar” when he becomes attracted to a career-driven production assistant (Danes).

Zac, 21, and Claire premiered the film at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film has no set release date in the U.S.

  • LG

  • kim

    This film needs to be released in the US. I hope that it will because Zac has received some very positive reviews. It would be great if it was released before The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud.

  • LG

    His hair looks nice.

    Holy Crap
    also I saw an interview with a Zacs costar in the movie James Tupper

    ´and a role in the feature “Me and Orson Welles” opposite Zac Efron, Claire Danes and Ben Chaplin. It will open in theaters in September, about the same time as the medical drama “Mercy,” Tupper’s second series as a regular, will premiere on NBC.´

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    ..Omg. Is this movie going to come out anytime soon !? I’m like dying..

    There’s a video clip there if anyone hasn’t seen it yet. Zachary is so cute when he sings and plays the drums… :D

  • athena

    Yeah, come out in the theatres already okay….I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • Katty

    This will defintely show people that Zac can not only do comedies/teen movies, that he can appeal to adults, too. I’m proud all his hard work is pulling off. Go, Zac! You deserve it! I can’t wait for all your movies in the future.
    Btw.. is he in Montreal right now? Just wondering.. we haven’t gotten any news on him.

  • Katty

    What is with him and the cougar-y movies?? Haha

  • Helen

    Its coming out in September

  • Zac Efron’s #1 fan


    So true.

  • christine

    Woah, Zac looks good. There’s been no real confirmation as to when the movie will be released. One of his costars said this fall, but he did not say what month in this fall.

  • bettybaby

    Wow love this spread, and i’m hoping People giving it a “first look” means we’ll get a release date soon!!!!!!!!!!

    this is a great story, and will do a lot to further zac’s career!

  • jenny


    zac is in Montreal according to a person reported that zac and vanessa are living in a rented apartment.

  • Malee

    No offence but those two make an ugly couple…
    please no hate comments on this comment…
    Just my honest opinion….

  • Susie


    Thanks for the website. Lmao@him singing have you tried wheeties! Oh, he looks extra hot with that hair style but he looks good with his new hair cut too.

    On the Funny or Die spoof, featuring Breckin Meyer and Zac Efron, of his tearful encounter video post:—– “It was funny, but at the same time it was making fun of a violent attack. I wasn’t hurt but I was surprised because I’ve been nothing but glowing about Zac Efron. Maybe I was hurt a little, yeah.”

    anyone else think this guy is a d o uc h e?
    any of you been on his website?

    James Tupper Zacs costar did an interview and the interviewer said that ORSEN WELLES IS DUE OUT IN SEPTEMBER

    Zac is going to be great in this movie. Hoping that the Us picks this movie up already.

  • mykamicks

    Look forward unto this movie… Clearly, Zac is showcasing versatility in his acting in different roles and diferent leading ladies at the age of 21…

  • ryanefron

    ah! i love zac.
    this better be picked up in the us.

  • zanessafan86

    I wish that this movie would come out in the U.S. I would love to see it.

    To clear something up, Zac has not been in Montreal at all this week. VHud has been working like crazy this week as she having to take 2 days off this weekend to go to NY and do promo for her other movie. she has been attending all the cast and crew dinners this week. she did not do this july 4th weekend and any other time family and friends came to visit.

    Back to this thread. This movie is slated for limited release only in movie theatres callerd VUE in the UK , in October. It is yet have a distributor in the US. It will also be appearing at the Woodstock festivial in the UK in late September,where the director Richard Linkater is to recieve an award!

  • Karen


    I’m a little confused over your post. Are you saying that as of this week (July 6-9) since returing to Montreal from LA that she has been attending all cast and crew dinners? And are you saying she didn’t do this prior to this week when Zac or her family came to Montreal to visit here?

    Also, it had been reported a few weeks ago that MAOW would be released in the US in October. Then it was reported that it would be released in September. The report of it being released in September may have been only for the UK but the report earlier that it would be released in October was definitely for the US. I believe that even Zac said in an interview that it would be released in the US in October.

  • Irene

    I can’t wait to see Zac in that movie! This movie looks really good =)

  • witchygirl

    i would love to see this movie i really hope that it is release and not only on DVD because i love looking at zac on the big screen.

  • nikkki


  • xoxzanessaluvxox

    Oh I just love him :(
    I like his hair here 2, short & slicked back.
    I can’t wait to see this movie & witness Zac’s true acting ability.
    I don’t understand why this movie hasn’t been picked up yet, don’t they understand that anything with Zac Efron in it is sure to sell.

  • Susanna

    This movie is much anticipated but it’s having trouble finding a US distributor. At this point, I just want it released (either theaters or DVD) ’cause I’m getting frustrated waiting to see it. It’s getting to be an old movie at this point. BTW, I like your new haircut, Zac, and wish you all the best as always.

  • raider814

    so great to see him working with such a fine actress; I’d love to see him work with Ellen Page or Emma Watson. I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • Tiptoes

    I can’t wait to see MAOW in theatres!

    He looks good in that photo with Claire.
