Zac Efron, who plays Troy Bolton, the captain of the school's varsity basketball team and the unlikely lead of the high school's musical, has lately graduated from Disney small-screen stardom to the big leagues of adult Hollywood. He had the lead role in director Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles" and stars in the ghostly romantic story "Charlie St. Cloud." He also started his own production company, Ninjas Runnin' Wild Productions, under Warner Bros.
