    It’s a pretty well-known fact that Zac Efron is often referred to as one of the most aesthetically-pleasing A-list actors out there.

    So, when his latest film job was announced, we were all a little surprised…

    The 29-year-old actor, who has previously admitted to not always being as popular as he is today, is set to play American serial killer Ted Bundy in a film depicted through the eyes of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer.

    The film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile will detail Ted Bundy’s life before his execution back in 1989 after he confessed to sexually assaulted and killing over 30 women.

    Yep… it’s going to be heavy. And, the role will be quite the departure for Zac, who’s most famous of starring in Disney teen franchise High School Musical and comedies like Bad NeighboursDirty Grandpa, and Baywatch. 

    Awards season… watch this space.
