It’s no secret that Zac Efron has long been eager to shed his squeaky-clean “High School Musical” image. Last year the young actor dropped out of a planned “Footloose” remake so he could devote his time to more serious acting endeavors. One of those projects was “Charlie St. Cloud,” which will be released July 30 and marks Efron’s debut as a dramatic leading man.
The premise of the movie itself is relatively Sparks-esque. After high school senior Charlie (Efron) suffers the loss of his younger brother Sam (Charlie Tahan) in a car accident, he struggles to overcome his grief. Before Sam’s death, Charlie promised the young boy he’d teach him how to play baseball before heading off to Stanford. So he slowly begins encountering and interacting with Sam’s ghost – but that only jeopardizes his budding romance with Tess (Amanda Crew), one of his old high school classmates whom he’s begun to fall for.
The trailer makes a valiant effort to show off Efron as a heartthrob for his legion of adoring young fans. Only seconds in, the actor’s muscular arms are center stage as he pulls the ropes of a sailboat on the sun-dappled open sea with his brother. From our limited view, the relationship his character has with his younger brother is endearing, and we’re sure the movie is a bona fide tear-jerker. But at points in the trailer, doesn’t it seem like Efron is straining to seem brooding and pensive in an effort to get some “real” emotion up on screen? [Source]

Between announcing new movies and preparing for his responsibilities as the host of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, Aziz Ansari has little free time on his hands. But just as there’s always room for Jell-O, there’s always time for squirrels on water skis. In a new commercial promoting the awards show, Ansari seeks out the assistance of his friend and fellow comedian Sarah Silverman to help write some material to support the MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV. “We will, we will,” a distracted Silverman tells Ansari, before inviting him over to her laptop. “But look at this.”
On Silverman’s computer is the one thing in the world – well, one of few things – that could possibly derail Ansari’s work ethic: an adorable video of a water-skiing squirrel. The hilarious YouTube video causes a nonstop three-day distraction for both Ansari and Silverman that doesn’t end until Zac Efron shows up at their doorstep ready for work.
“I’m supposed to shoot a promo for the MTV Movie Awards, but I didn’t get a script,” he tells Ansari and Silverman. “Do you guys know what we’re doing?”
Luckily for the “17 Again” star, Ansari and Silverman have put their three days of squirrel watching to good use by coming up with “a great idea” for a promotional spot – an idea that unsurprisingly involves water-skiing, Zac Efron’s head photoshopped on a squirrel and plenty of laughs.
While we can’t promise an overabundance of squirrel comedy when the 2010 MTV Movie Awards kick off live at 9 p.m. ET on June 6, we can promise you plenty more hilarity from Ansari and other special guests. Trust us: Nothing should stand between you and the awards show — not even an adorable water-skiing squirrel. [Source]
