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!
Some rumors are saying that Zac is in talks for Garry Marshall’s next star-filled movie, New York’s Eve, which is also the sequel to this year’s Valentine’s Day.
This is not the first time Garry wants Zac for his movies. He first offered him a role in Valentine’s Day that finally went to Taylor Lautner.
Marshall is also hoping to get Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry and even Justin Bieber to join Lea Michele, who is in final talks for her big screen debut in “New York’s Eve”.
What do you think of Zac in this new movie?
A medium-length post for you today.
First, I added 10 HQ pictures of a super smiley and gorgeous Vanessa walking to the set of her seemingly-confirmed new movie, Journey to the Center of the Earth 2, with her co-star, Josh Hutcherson. I guess we’ll see her stay in Hawaii for a while, for the production of the movie if she’s really starring in it. Lucky her!
Next, I added a little more than 30 icons to the Icon Archive. Check them out!
Finally, I want you to go vote everyday or as much as you can for Zac and Vanessa, who are nominated for Favorite Movie Star Under 25 presented by Moviefone for the 2011 People Choice Awards! They deserve the prize and it’d be amazing to see them to a new appearance together, wouldn’t it? So to show your support for them, vote here!
