Big news for Young Hollywood today: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have split up.
The pair met on the Highschool Musical set in 2005, and the relationship is said to have ”just ran its course,” reports an alleged source who knows them both, to US Weekly.
“They are still talking and still friends. There’s no drama. No one cheated. They just grew up,” the friend added.
Having lived in Hollywood and seeing these two young people blossom in each other’s company over the years, this news is sad. Wishing them both the best in work, love and life from here.

“Zac is not only more beautiful than a bubble sitting on a rose petal, but he’s naive too.”–Michael K on Zac Efron, commenting in Details Magazine about Tom Cruise inviting Zac over to ride motorcycles at Cruise’s place.
Hollywood is doing way too much today to make political points, and it’s lol funny. Something about triumph of The Last Samurai with dirt bike motorcycles everywhere. Go to Details to read.

LA is the Denim Capitol of the World, so Efron represented.

Alrighty then… here’s Zac Efron‘s new film trailer. Enjoy.

Zac Efron is on the promotional trail for his next film, Charlie St. Cloud. According to IMDB, the film ‘is about a young man overcome by grief at the death of his younger brother. So much so that he takes a job as caretaker of the cemetery in which his brother is buried.
‘Charlie has a special lasting bond with his brother though, as he can see him. Charlie meets up with his brother (Sam) each night to play catch and talk. Then, a girl comes into Charlie’s life and he must choose between keeping a promise he made to Sam, or going after the girl he loves Written by CBlodg“
Already, I think the Sam of this story–would have wanted Zac’s character Charlie–to pursue love–part of the purpose of life. That’s sort of a no brainer. Looks like a sweet film.

2008 was Zac Efron‘s year. He busted out with Hairspray and High School Musical film franchise superstardom.
No one was counting on the big phenomenon that the Twilight Saga would create, engendering a whole new wave of Hollywood stars. All Hollywood stars slipped a notch or twenty with the Twilight Saga cast. including Zac Efron. We all had to make room and Zac was a casualty of this in his star rankings.
Competition is good. However, Zac’s star power holds true. He ranks the 43rd most hottest Hollywood star this year.

Me and Orson Welles, Zac Efron‘s new film opened with limited release to 2750 per screen average so far. The film has taken in only $343,000 domestically.
It just goes to show, no matter how good you are, you still will appear in some good films that people won’t support. All that working out at the gym all year for nada. Poor Zac.
The multi-talented Efron (who can sing dance act) must of had some of his box office thunder stolen by the Twilight New Moon casts plethora of emerging Hollywood heartthrobs.
An action film for Efron next is the way to go to stay competitive perhaps. At least Zac still has Vanessa Hudgens as his life partner. Vanessa is the 20th hottest star in Hollywood this year.

Who will be Hollywood’s six top leading men of the next decade. Let’s take a look today on Horiwood.Com.
World trends create new male box office stars. The world wants male leadership in entertainment texts of a quality that resembles that of super-hero, supernatural actionesque, sci-fi, go-getter and vindicator of the oppressed. Men with spiritual or super-powers are what the world wants.
To best represent and capitalize on this trend that exists in the world; film franchises are the way to go. Nothing garners fan loyalty for studios than a film franchise with ready made sequels. Casting such billion dollar generating movie entertainment strategies is essential.
Hollywood studios, in the wake of Robert Pattinson Twilight Saga super stardom must pick their new Kings well. Here’s seven… for your entertainment who will dominate film, entertainment, tabloids, media here in Hollywood, the US and worldwide.
1. Robert Pattinson for Summit Entertainment as Edward Cullen and new film franchise ventures from Summit.
2. Taylor Lautner for Paramount Pictures and Summit Entertainment as Jacob Black and Max Steel. He is America’s reigning Native American Indian and teen action star King.
3. Ryan Reynolds for Warner Brothers and DC Comics in Green Lantern cast as: “A man is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.” Reynolds is the only Hollywood actor to land film franchise roles in both Marvel Comics and DC Comics adaptations for film. Both hands are full of ace cards for Reynolds in the 2010′s.
4. Taylor Kitsch for Disney’s John Carter of Mars film franchise. Aliens are hot. Kitsch is Disney’s great hope as the next Johnny Depp to carry Disney films forward. Miley Cyrus cast in Wings (Disney’s hope of a Twilight Saga-esque hit franchise) is Taylor Kitsch’s young female counterpart for Disney’s box office hopes in the 2010′s film franchising genre of US entertainment. Kitsch is Canadian born and knows his competition, Ryan Reynolds, strengths well, having both acted in Wolverine with Hugh Jackman.
5. Zac Efron for Johnny Quest, a remake of the 1964 classic: “Dr. Benton Quest is a research scientist who is frequently called upon for missions that require his scientific and technical expertise. He is usually accompanied by his son Jonny, his tutor/bodyguard Race Bannon, their bulldog with the distinctive mask-like eye markings named Bandit, and Hadji, an Indian orphan who has special abilities of his own. Together, they investigate mysteries, perform rescues and battle nefarious villains around the world, most notably Dr. Zin.”
Efron has already carried a film franchise home for Disney globally at the box office with The High School Musical franchised series. We know he can sing and dance, can he do action tough and hold his own?
Whose still up for grabs in the film franchising genre? Break out star, Alex Meraz has yet to be signed to a big studio film franchise. Meraz rated higher than Taylor Lautner did this year on Horiwood.Com. In this economy, true facts can’t be ignored when it comes to ROI on studio films and who has an audience draw that’s current and real at the box office. Whoever signs Alex has signed a superstar leading lad to carry a film franchise home.
7. Chris Hemsworth as Thor for Marvel Comics in a film directed by Kenneth Branagh and that also stars, Natalie Portman in the role of Jane Foster and potentially Samuel L Jackson in the role of Fury. Hemsworth is baby Brad Pitt/fused with Hugh Jackman to Megan Fox’s baby Angelina in the new Hollywood. Portman splices it down the middle, to say ‘I Am the new Angelina’ by agreeing to bring her star power to Hemsworth’s side and help make a new Hollywood King and hit film with Kenneth Branagh. But back to casting…
In addition, break out Australian stars, Ryan Kwanten of True Blood fame and Liam Hemsworth of The Last Song are also available to be cast in film franchises. These are your seven leading actors of the super-hero, supernatural actionesque, sci-fic genres selected to entertain you in the future from Hollywood.
They all play men with spiritual perception, great strength–played out via action roles of men with super-powers, a trend that the world wants more of.
The studios have picked their young Kings to represent in the 2010′s. Good luck fellahs! Some stiff competition here.
What is lacking is African American break out actors. We have child actor Jayden Smith, son of Will Smith and pictured below… acting with Jackie Chan in the Karate Kid/ Kung Fu Kid film in China. This could become a sequel but he’s too young to be called a leading Hollywood actor, he’s more in training as his box office heavyweight father seeks to transfer some of his star power on his son.
We also need new Asian action stars in America. And of course being a hori and Maori of New Zealand being so excited about Taylor Lautner’s progress in Hollywood… we also could do with a break out Maori action star too, just to keep this Hollywood mix of leading men, mega hot]. More Latino leading men are needed also in Hollywood studio films.

Zac Efron reveals to Time Magazine his hair styling tips.
When you grew up on a dairy farm in rural New Zealand, helping your dad out do farm chores before and after high school… with cow sh*t splattered Hobbit hair like I did, it is very very hard for me to read about Zac Efron’s hair tips in Time Magazine.
It’s like … care factor? Zero.
