So Shady! Zac Efron Ditches His Good Boy Image to Play a Drug Runner in His New Movie!

Bye, bye jazz hands! High School Musical homecoming king Zac Efron is going all gangster for his latest movie role. Will YOU watch his metamorphosis from good guy to evil dude?

The Disney star is ditching his All-American, wholesome image and channeling his inner bad boy for the new film Snabba Cash, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

In an effort to break free from his High School Musical typecasting, the 23-year-old actor is switching gears and taking on the role of a young guy who becomes a runner for a big-time coke dealer. The flick is an American remake of this year’s hit Swedish thriller.

Snabba represents an opportunity for the youngster to grow beyond the teen roles that made him a star,” THR reports. “The project…also sends a signal as to the sort of high-level material with which Efron wants to be associated.”
