Zac Efron
Tony Rizzo, March 2018

Zac Efron is known as a good singer (“High School Musical,” TV films and “The Greatest Showman”) and a hunk (after the “Baywatch” reboot with Dwayne Johnson), but get ready for a game changer. Efron fans are going to see him become serial killer Ted Bundy in the upcoming film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” currently shooting in Covington, Kentucky, with “Big Bang Theory’s” Jim Parsons as prosecutor Larry Simpson, and Lili Collins as Bundy’s girlfriend. Also in the cast are John Malkovich and “Burn Notice” star Jeffrey Donovan. Parsons’ last film, “A Kid Like Jake,” with Claire Danes, Octavia Spencer and Priyanka Chopra, screened at The Sundance Film Festival in January.

George Clooney is making his return to acting. He’ll star and produce a six-part limited series for Hulu that is a remake of the 1970 film “Catch 22,” based on the popular 1961 novel by Joseph Heller. It starred Oscar winners Alan Arkin and Martin Balsam and was directed by Mike Nichols. Clooney became known because of the series “The Facts of Life” (1985-1987) and just had to face “The Facts” — he loves acting!
