Zac Efron is planning life after High School Musical.

Already signed on to star in a movie called Seventeen, the young stud is now confirmed to star in Me and Orson Welles, according to Movie Fanatic.

Beautiful with a Beard?

The movie is set in 1937, centering on high school student Richard Samuels (Efron). While strolling the streets of New York, Samuels happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is noticed by its mercurial founder, Orson Welles (Christian McKay).

Me and Orson Welles will shoot mid-February; Disney's High School Musical 3: Senior Year will begin filming April 21.

Bad news for teenage girls who found Zac Efron's most attractive body part to be his appendix.

Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

The actor was was hospitalized yesterday for an appendectomy, but his representative assures us he'll make a full recovery.

The 20-year-old High School Musical stud muffin was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for the surgery, which is as routine a procedure as there is in medicine.

"Zac had his appendix removed and is recuperating," his rep says.

Efron, who just signed on for a third installment of High School Musical, is currently shooting the feature Seventeen with Matthew Perry.

He's likely being comforted by co-star and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens right at this very moment.

Zac Efron is this month's cover boy for Details.

Safe to assume, the issue will be a big seller. Here are snippets of the interview with the High School Musical star:

Our Favorite Zac

On the beach candid shots of him and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens: "At that point it was inconceivable. I had no idea that anyone could ever care. That happens to, like, big stars. I woke up and my dad told me that I was in a newspaper on the beach; he made fun of me, he said I was ‘frollicking.'"

The Hollywood Gossip note: Imagine what he thought when he woke up and saw Vanessa Hudgens nude photos on the Internet!

On the celebrity gossip reporter who took the pictures of him shirtless and Vanessa in a bikini: "The photographer left me a note with a disc of all the pictures, and on the note it said, ‘Thanks for the Range Rover!'"

On Seventeen being created as a star vehicle for him: "It's weird but I don't feel like I deserve any of the attention. There's really nothing but one audition for a Disney Channel movie that separates me from 2,000 other brown-haired, blue-eyed guys in L.A., you know?"

In a new interview with Elle, Jessica Alba manages to insult Zac Efron, pretend as though she doesn't use her sexuality to rise through the ranks in Hollywood and not even mention her baby's daddy, Cash Warren.

It's an impressive triple whammy. Check out the excerpts now:

Playing Paparazzi

On meeting Zac Efron at the Teen Choice Awards: "He looks like a child with a lot of makeup. I was like, ‘My God, you're just a little kid.'"

On NOT being a sex symbol: "I think there are ambitious girls who will do anything to be famous, and they think men in this business are used to women doing that. Contrary to how people may feel, I've never used my sexuality.

That's not part of it for me. When I'm in a meeting, I want to tell you why I'm an asset, how I'm a commodity, how I can put asses in the seats, not, ‘There's a chance you're going to be able to fâ€" me.' That's never been my deal."

This is a picture of Jessica Alba naked, not using her sexuality at all. Not one bit. No sir.

Don't you feel terrible for Vanessa Hudgens?

Not only must the High School Musical star deal with the fallout from her naked picture scandal (which, reportedly, resulted in a raise for her role in High School Musical 3), but she's forced to date a - brace yourself! - good looking guy!

Ashley Tisdale and Zac Efron

Hudgens recently lamented that "it can be hard dating the blue-eyed boy, especially since he is so very popular with the ladies."

Bear with us as we break out the violins.

"It's hard when you have a good-looking boyfriend," she added. "You want your man to be your man. You don't want all these girls up on him and stuff like that."

As far as the future with Zac Efron, the 19-year-old Disney actress was incredibly confusing.

"It's fun having a boyfriend. He's a friend and a cute friend who you like. It's nice. But only time will tell," she said. "I'm still young, and I have my girlfriends and I have my family."

We're not sure what any of that means... but it's not encouraging for Zanessa, is it?

Phew.

Don't worry, Zanessa lovers, the rumors of your favorite couple's demise appear to be exaggerated.

Lost in Zac's Eyes

Here are Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens sharing a laugh in the new year. They look quite content and in love, don't they?

Like Carla Bruni and Nikolas Sarkozy, Efron and Hudgens make an adorable couple.

On the set of his new movie, Seventeen, Zac Efron sports a new, wavy hairstyle.

What do you think of it?

Meanwhile, as Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu and any of his High School Musical classmates can attest to, Efron is a joy to work with.

"It's nice coming to work with Zac Efron. He's like the loveliest thing and doing a great job on the movie," Seventeen co-star Michelle Trachtenberg said.

And in bed, Vanessa Hudgens would probably add.

We know who Vanessa Hudgens and Carrie Underwood would vote for in the question posed below.

But we're asking YOU: Which is the hotter hunk: Zac Efron or Chace Crawford?

Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

The young actors look eerily alike. Each possesses blue eyes, adorable bangs and a smile that would melt the treacherous heart of Sam Lutfi.

So, who do you prefer: the singing High School Musical stud or the good-looking Gossip Girl-er?

Taking a break from seeing Minka Kelly naked and recording lame songs about feelings, John Mayer poses for a photo with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

We feel bad for Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

Efron

We'll give Zanessa a free pass, though. We know they didn't want anything to do with this and our hearts go out to them for even being in the same room as this loser.

Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and John Mayer: Two High School Musical hotties, one very large head. Two quality vocalists, one source of occasional nude photos.

The two young stars and John Mayer were seen at the after-party for Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story on Wednesday. Also in attendance at the bash held at Hollywood Social were Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell and other celebrities.
