My fingers are trembling with regret as I write this post. I can’t believe it, but I’m supporting a project of Zac Efron‘s. A teaser trailer has been released for his upcoming film entitled, Me and Orson Welles. The film is an adaptation of the Robert Kaplow novel of the same name. It centers on a 17 year old (Efron), who has landed a part in a 1937 production of Julius Caesar, which is directed by a young Orson Welles. The film is directed by Richard Linklater, and co-stars Claire Danes.

Check out the trailer after the jump…

So, Claire Danes is playing the older woman in this movie? I remember when she used to play the youngest person in everything. Oh, how time flies. I hate to say it, but I think Zac Efron has a charm about him that can go beyond his looks. Call me crazy, but I can’t deny his good comedic timing.

What do you think of the teaser for Me and Orson Welles?
