Only ET’s Kevin Frazier takes you into Dodger Stadium with ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ star Zac Efron for a little game of catch! Zac is joined by his ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ co-star Charlie Tahan, and the former “High School Musical” heartthrob says of their off-screen relationship, “We saw each other for every day [while making the movie] for so long, we really became brothers, pretty much.”
Based on an acclaimed novel, ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ (in theaters July 30) finds Zac as the title character, a young man who struggles to get over the loss of his younger brother Sammy (Tahan) when tragedy strikes. In order to cope with Sammy’s death, Charlie retreats into a fantasy world in which they play catch and share conversations about life. Can Charlie balance his fantasy world and the real world – and ever really let Sammy go?
Regarding his move into more serious, dramatic territory, Zac says, “Every movie has its challenges. This was challenging on an emotional level and really you just have to find that connection with something real that you can relate to, and that for me was my [own] little brother.” [Source]
