    I’m with tributegirl! This will be Zac’s most challenging role to date because Welles is a legend and so well-known. Zac had better do his homework…

    I doubt they will have Zac playing Welles, I’m assuming he will probably be playing the high school student.

    Welles will be a formidable challenge for him to play, but Zac is one of the finest actors working today.

    It doesn’t say that Zac is playing Welles. We don’t know yet what role he is playing in this movie, do we?

    Yes, he’s cute. So are dozens of others. Yes, he’s talented. So are dozens of others. To say he’s the cutest and most talented is a matter of taste and personal opinion and means absolutely nothing. Time as well as good publicist will tell how far he goes.

    not just a good publicist, he needs good management so he doesn’t pick lemons to work on. countless good actors have hit the skids in their careers by picking bad scripts and movies to be in. some recover, many don’t.
