Actor Zac Efron has his wrist bandaged up again — almost a year to the day since he injured his hand in an alleged fruit-cutting injury.
Reports suggest the former High School Musical star was sent home from the set of new comedy Townies in Los Angeles after a medic who checked out his injury declared he wouldn’t be able to carry on.
In April last year, the young hunk joked about an injury to his left hand when he showed up to the London premiere of his film The Lucky One sporting a bandage. He told curious reporters a fan had bitten him.
And it seems he’s keen to keep fans in the dark about his latest injury — this time to his right wrist.
Zac Efron has appealed to the producers at Glee for a guest role on the show because he’s a “huge fan” of Lea Michele.
Efron previously showed off his singing chops in both Hairspray and High School Musical, but after working withGlee actress Michele on the set of their upcoming film New Year’s Eve, he’s eager for another chance to star alongside the beauty on her hit TV series – and he’s hoping executives will cast him as a blood thirsty criminal.
He tells celebrity blog PerezHilton.com, “I’m a huge fan of Glee and a huge fan of Lea Michele’s work. It looks so fun. I would love to (be on it). Have they had a serial killer yet? It’d be fun to sing about.”
The popular high school musical show has already featured a number of guest stars during its three-year run – among them Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, John Stamos and Kristin Chenoweth. And Latin pop stars Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan have both recently signed on for roles in the show next year.
High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has ditched her glamorous look for her new movie Gimme Shelter to play a dishevelled, pregnant tomboy with piercings.
Zac Efron’s ex-girlfriend, 22, shocked onlookers in Newark, New Jersey on Thursday (14Jul11) when she showed up onset dressed in baggy clothes with short, greasy hair – worlds apart from her usual red carpet look.
Hudgens portrays a pregnant teen whose rich father disowns her, forcing her to live on the streets, when she decides to keep her baby.
Brendan Frasier will play the actress’ dad. Rosario Dawson also stars.
