Your ultimate source for all things Zac Efron

“The Lucky One” have been one of this year’s biggest tearjerkers, but the actor admits anything he pulled up as research for his role of a U.S. Marine was more heart-wrenching than the Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

“The first thing we did was go to Camp Pendleton to hang out with some sergeants that were just about to be deployed,” he says, before letting out a sigh. “That was an eye-opener.”

He continues: “I was blown away by these guys.”

Efron, 24, plays Logan Logan Thibault in the film, a soldier in Iraq who finds a photo of a woman which he believes to be his good luck charm throughout his time overseas. When he returns to the States, he discovers he has problems adjusting with home life and seeks to find woman who “helped” him survive his tour of duty.

“The more I thought about it an researched it, I realized that if I ever to have the chance to play a marine and to fill these shoes, that this is probably it,” says Efron he says of his role. [Source]

“The Lucky One” tells a story of a marine who travels to Louisiana after serving three tours in Iraq and searches for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.

On Sunday (July 22) at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, Zac Efron walked away with two surfboards – aka awards. The Disney-spawned star won Choice Movie Actor: Romance and Choice Movie Actor: Drama for his role in “The Lucky One.”

The actor took the stage at Los Angeles’ Gibson Ampitheatre and thanked his fans, who he termed “the best in the world.” The star was dressed down for the event in an olive shirt and khaki pants.

One fan on Twitter congratuled Zefron with this accolade: “Congratulations to Zac Efron for being probably the only man who came from Disney Channel and made it this far without a singing career.”

Demi Lovato and “Glee’s” Kevin McHale hosted the annual show that was studded with performances by Flo-Rida and No Doubt. Other winners included Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, Miranda Cosgrove and Kristen Stewart. [Source]

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers says “The Lucky One” is coming to high-definition on August 28.

Based on Sparks’ bestseller “The Lucky One,” Zac Efron stars alongside Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks.

U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive-a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/UV Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include:
• Zac Efron becomes a marine,
• Watch the sparks fly – the romantic world of “The Lucky One,”
• Zac and Taylor’s amazing chemistry.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray combo pack is $35.99 and a movie-only edition will also be available for $29.98. [Source]
