I couldn’t resist posting these pics of Zac Efron enjoying some downtime on the set of Are We Officially Dating? from yesterday (December 20, 2012). He looks so adorable, and come on, that smile!
More information about Zac Efron’s role in the film Parkland has been revealed. The Tom Hanks-produced movie (cred alert!) is based on the book Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Vincent Bugliosi that was adapted by Peter Landesman, who will also direct. It recounts the dramatic true story of the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.
Efron will be taking the role of Dr. Charles ‘Jim’ Carrico, a resident in general surgery at the time of the event who was one of the first to take a look at the President. His name comes up generally in discussions about the exit wound, with the common story going around that Carrico and his team reported that the president’s head had been blasted out. But he has later clarified, “Everyone in the room was trying to save a life, not figure out forensics . . . We were trying to save a life, not worrying about entry and exit wounds.”
