My wonderful six year-old stepdaughter, Lily, is a currently a big fan of Tom Waits, The Three Amigos and Zac Efron. While I’m naturally proud of her Tom Waits/Three Amigos allegiances (who wouldn’t be?), I was always a bit sniffy about the whole Zac Efron thing. I mean, he’s the basketball-playing, song-and-dance pretty boy from High School Musical. That sort of thing doesn’t really chime with my Uncut Magazine-reading demographic.
Tonight I discovered that Zac Efron will be appearing in a Richard Linklater period film called Me and Orson Welles.
I’m a massive Orson Welles fan. It looks like the sort of thing that I’ll really enjoy. I want to see it.
Maybe Lily was on to something after all.
