01 Sep 2013
Paul Trenier: I think Zac Efron would be a good choice. He has the look and the musical experience. I think he would make a great leading man in the film adaptation of Wicked. Anne Powers: Zac Efron Juhstin Rahmihres: I think Zac Efferon would be great for it and it would not hurt the box office Tyler Temple: Zac Efron is an interesting choice, I wouldn't mind seeing him. Aaron Tveit or Jeremy Jordan would be great too.
Zac Efron rose to fame starring as Troy Bolton in Disney's "High School Musical" trilogy. The actor, known for his film work in "17 Again," "The Lucky One" and "New Year's Eve," also demonstrated his musical chops as Link Larkin in the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical Hairspray. Perhaps he can return to his musical roots as Fiyero in a screen adaptation of Wicked.
