James Franco Would Love To Work With Zac EfronSo at some point for some magazine, director Gus Van Sant sat down and had a chat with one of his Milk stars, James Franco. Franco is a dreamy actor (and maybe rapist, I am a terrible person) who plays gay in the movie. The point is, they get talking about Zac Efron, the elfin star of the High School Musical movies. I don't know what to say about it, so I'm just going to post it after the jump:
JF: Then I think you said that you had tried to get Zac for a small role in Milk. GVS: Yeah. The pizza guy. He never had time. JF: Right. So then when I saw him at the MTV Movie Awards, I was like, "Hey man Good to meet you, Zac. I really like the movie, and I just workd with Gus, and he tried to get you in the movie." And Zac was like, "Yeah, yeah. It just didn't work out." And I was like, "Well you should really do a movie with Gus. I think it would be a good contrast to your other stuff." He's like, "Yeah, maybe." And then I was walking away to go back to my seat, and he tapped me on the shoulder and said, "We should do it together, man." And he, like, gave me a high five. He was really the nicest guy. GVS: Yeah. He is really nice. We should all do a Judd Apatow movie. You and Zac and me. JF: Yeah. You should do a movie that Judd produces, and we'll do it with Zac. What do you think? GVS: Keep your eyes open for it. JF: What kind of movie do you think it could be? GVS: I'll have to think about that one. JF: IF you have an idea and it's like me and Zac playing basketball or delivering pizzas or whatever, I'm in.
