Zac Efron & Christian McKay: Mercury Men

Zac Efron & Christian McKay: Mercury Men

Disguised by a gray beanie and shades, Zac Efron and costar Christian McKay attend the unveiling of the Me & Orson Welles plaque at the site of the original Mercury Theatre in NYC on Tuesday afternoon (November 24).

The 22-year-old actor was also on hand to welcome Chris Welles Feder, the daughter of the late actor Orson Welles. Christian plays Orson in the upcoming flick debuting in limited theaters on Wednesday, November 25.

The plaque reads: “On this site in 1937, legendary American actor-writer-director-producer Orson Welles founded the Mercury Theatre with John Houseman. Here Welles directed groundbreaking productions of Julius Caesar, The Shoemaker’s Holiday, Heartbreak House, and Danton’s Death. Welles and the Mercury Theatre would go on to make history with The War of the Worlds broadcast and Citizen Kane. Astonishingly, he would accomplish all this by his 26th birthday.”

    Aw, I’m bummed that I didn’t go around there for support. I had such a hassle from the publicity people the other night for the screening that I was so exhausted the next day…I was told that he might be here and there he was just with Christian MacKay and Richard Linklater, and Orson Welles daughter…would have loved to have been there…had some great questions for Zac, although I see that Parade magazine has the clout and beat me to the same questions I had for him…Oh well…it was a chilly day out….and he looks a bit cold at one point.

    Zac is hot, of course, but ME AND ORSON could make unknown Christian McKay a Star.

    Also, we should not neglect the pretty lady in the pictures, Christopher Welles Feder, the firstborn daughter of Orson Welles. She has just published a moving memoir of her life with her father, IN MY FATHER’S SHADOW.
