Zac Efron Honored with Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame

The photo gallery has been updated with tons of photos. Any additional photos, I will add them to the gallery!

Zac Efron for The Rake

Zac is featured on the cover of The Rake! I have added photos from his photoshoot along with scans from the magazine! Enjoy!

THE RAKE – Zac Efron has a cold. O.K., he doesn’t, but I must admit that as I prepared to interview him, I sensed I was having a Gay Talese moment, and so I couldn’t help but start this piece by evoking Talese’s famous 1966 profile of Frank Sinatra. Like Sinatra, Efron is monumentally well known — facially, anyhow. Hollywood is a magnet for opinions, the public has been thirsty ever since the lights to the iconic sign were switched on, and while technology and the media have changed how information is digested, curiosity and gossip have only intensified certain aspects of the human condition.

One of Zac’s admirable qualities is that his trajectory to (stratospheric) stardom came, unlike Sinatra, from a very young age, where the cultural tendency is for the general public to demand every detail of a performer’s private life and to obsess over his or her ups and downs. And yet, as a result of what I can only assume is an abundance of prudence — a mature head screwed firmly onto young shoulders — precious little is known about Zac, his passions, his personality, and his private life. The phenomenon that was High School Musical turned the then-teenaged Efron into an instant pin-up, vulnerable to all of the as-yet-unaddressed dangers that young stars face when a press corps and a screaming fan base stare back.

At this point, I want to settle nerves about the subject matter. This story does not spend the next however-many words delving into cheap gossip or (frankly unworthy-of-The Rake) hearsay about private matters, but the context in which Zac and I talked — notably the limitations of the actors’ strike in the U.S., which was ongoing when our interview took place — meant that I was able to dwell on Efron the man, and his motivations. In his journey so far, a king has emerged from a pulchritudinous harlequin, and his place now is as the sensitive hero, statesmanlike and dignified.

In his new movie, The Iron Claw, we learn lessons about how dedication, both physical and mental, helps develop a character on screen and off. Zac plays Kevin Von Erich, one of the Von Erich brothers from a famous wrestling family in the era of professional wrestling that preceded W.W.E. The film follows these young men under the whip-hand of their pushy father in a story that ultimately becomes a Shakespearean tragedy, and farce rolled into one. The Iron Claw is the name of the finishing move the brothers use in the ring, but the metaphor of a father’s vice-like grip on his children and their choices does not go unnoticed.

So the film is about the boys, but it is also about the responsibilities of fatherhood and what it means to push or control your children, knowing that children are wired to want your approval and to love you despite the harshness, almost to a farcical extent. Of course, as we view the film through a contemporary lens, we do so understand more about what kind of behaviours are or are not toxic and how our environment affects us. The movie also comes wrapped up in 1980s hairdos and a Rush soundtrack.

Efron says: “Very specific to the Von Erich brothers was this ride to peak stardom in pro wrestling. They really created a dynasty of the best pro wrestlers if not in Texas then maybe ever on camera, especially in this era. Initially they were outsiders who worked their way in, and a lot of it was because of their father, who was a ruthless albeit effective coach to them. He had a style that was — if you look at it by today’s standards — it would probably be too much to handle. These guys were training like monsters to essentially live up to their dad’s hopes and dreams.”

‘The Iron Claw’ Dallas World Premiere

The Iron Claw held its world premiere yesterday in Dallas, Texas at the Texas Theatre. Zac was in attendance as well as his co-stars Jeremy Allen White, Harris Dickinson, Stanley Simons, and director Sean Durkin. It was a beautiful premiere with Kevin Von Erich and his family also in attendance. The film got some great reactions on social media. Zac got a lot of praise, as he deserves! I can’t wait to watch this movie and him in this role!

I have updated the photo gallery with photos of Zac at the premiere and after party. He looked so handsome! Enjoy!

Zac and his The Iron Claw co-stars, Jeremy Allen White and Harris Dickinson cover Entertainment Weekly! Check out the new shoot in the gallery and an interview below!

The stars of The Iron Claw may not be blood relatives, but spending an afternoon with them feels a lot like hanging out with three actual brothers. In between takes at their EW cover shoot in late October, Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, and Harris Dickinson have an easy camaraderie — finishing each other’s sentences and walking together in step as they navigate a dusty mountain road above a Simi Valley horse ranch at sunset.

As with all siblings, spiritual or otherwise, there’s plenty of good-natured ribbing — sometimes literally. Around lunchtime, a crew member hands Efron, White, and Dickinson a plate of ribs to eat on camera, and before long, all three are coated in a fine layer of barbecue sauce. But even as they poke fun at the stains on each other’s shirts, they really just seem content to hang out. Later (after a change of clothes), they sit down for an interview, and when asked how they trained to play members of the legendary Von Erich wrestling family in the new biopic, they mostly just want to heap praise on one another.

“I was blown away on the first day that you guys came to work,” Efron, 36, marvels. “You were jumping off ropes and doing huge hits.”

“We had some time [training] in L.A.,” White, 32, replies. “But I don’t know, Zac, I never saw you not good at anything.”

Dickinson, 27, admits to occasionally feeling silly in the ring, especially when their wrestling coach told them to go home and punch pillows for practice. But the British actor’s onscreen brothers won’t stand for any self-deprecation. “From the moment you come out, you’re just doing heavy drops on the mat,” Efron tells him, his voice tinged with eldest brother pride, not unlike the Von Erich brother he plays in the film. “And your claw is killer.”

That fraternal bond serves them well in The Iron Claw (out Dec. 22), the highly anticipated A24 drama about one of wrestling’s most iconic dynasties. The film focuses on four of the six Von Erich brothers — Kevin (Efron), David (Dickinson), Kerry (White), and Mike (Stanley Simons) — who built a wrestling empire in the 1970s and ’80s, led by their domineering father Fritz (Mindhunter’s Holt McCallany). But even as they rose to international fame, the family struggled both in and outside of the ring. Five of the Von Erich brothers (all except Kevin) died young, succumbing to health issues, tragic accidents, or suicide. The back-to-back deaths sparked rumors of a family curse — a cautionary tale of how sometimes success can exact a brutal price.


Amazing news! I didn’t think a premiere would happen because of the SAG-AFTRA but I’m glad Zac and the cast will be able to have a premiere for the movie!

DALLAS NEWS – The world premiere of The Iron Claw, featuring actors from the movie and wrestling legend Kevin Von Erich will be Nov. 8 in Dallas, A24 announced Wednesday.

Additional details such as the venue and showtime have not been released. An A24 spokeswoman said more details will follow.

The biographical drama centers around Kevin Von Erich and his brothers, who started their pro wrestling careers in Dallas. The film is scheduled for nationwide release on Dec. 22.

Von Erich and his family are expected to appear at the premiere, according to A24. A family spokesman said the Von Erich family is working out the details and will view the movie this week.

A24 also announced that director Sean Durkin along with actors Zac Efron (Kevin Von Erich) and Jeremy Allen White (Kerry Von Erich) will attend the premiere.

Harris Dickinson (David Von Erich), Stanley Simons (Mike Von Erich), Holt McCallany (Fritz Von Erich) and Maura Tierney (Doris Von Erich) are also expected to attend.

Kevin Von Erich talked about the movie during a stop on his “An Evening with Kevin Von Erich: Stories From the Top Rope” tour at the Majestic Theatre in Dallas on Sept. 1.

His public appearance in Dallas marked his return to Texas. He recently moved from Kauai, Hawaii, to a ranch he bought near the south-central Texas town of Boerne.
