Zac Efron's Grandma: Betty White!!!

Zac Efron's Grandma: Betty White!!!

It’s true!

Betty White will be playing Zac Efron‘s grandma in the upcoming Lorax, based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name.

According to USA Today, the 23-year-old actor will be the voice of Ted (after Dr. Seuss’ real name, Theodore Geisel) who goes in search of the Once-ler to find out how the world became so ugly.

Betty will play Ted’s grandmother, who tells him of the colorful world that used to be.

The movie adaption will be brought to you by the same team who did Despicable Me and Horton Hears a Who and in 3D!

WHAT DO YOU THINK about this new role for Zac?

OMG !! REALLY !? I watched the movie in class one day and I really loved it. Shows how mankind can be cruel to the environment. I loved it and making a full length movie has got me excited !! Zac Efron and Betty White.. awesome. :D

I’ve ALWAYS wanted Zac in an animated film. <3 Can’t wait for this. I also think it will be great because it will show he still cares about his young fans. This is something his young fans can go and see unlike all the other movies he’s set to be in.

Sounds like a cool combination

yay! i’m glad he’s not just gonna’ be doing action/thrillers forever! he hasn’t done any of those yet anyway. but, all of the films that he is supposedly starring and producing in, probably won’t reach out to his usual, young fanbase. This should be good! luv betty white! she’s so funny!

This sounds great! It will be amazing for the younger fans and who doesn’t go see cute little movies like this? All of the big names we see now, have done an animated film, think about it! It opens huge doors. :) I can’t wait to hear more, I’m so excited for zac. Love you!
Zanessa Forever! <3

I like this better, actually, than him doing Lucky One. He just didn’t need to do another sappy chick flick so soon after CSC, which was a failure critically and financially. This genre of movie has not done well lately, and I really wish he was doing ANY of his other projects first. He will lose his box office appeal if he keeps doing this kind of movie. At least The Lorax will do well, appealing to families!

This sounds good :) And with Betty White, Betty White is legend in hollyywood, so its cool Zac would get to work on a movie with her. I don’t know if Zac will agree to it, but it could be interesting :)

Betty White is taking over the world, ha! I love that she has her own Hoodiebuddie line of hoodies with her face on it like those OBEY posters. It’s great to see that people love Betty White. Go Betty!

Yay, I literally just watched the old version a week ago in AP Environmental….it’ll be interesting to see how this pans out. In Suess’s original Zac’s character is a child. Looking forward to it just as much as I was for Where the Wild Things Are!
