Since appearing in High School Musical 3: Senior Year, which was the last of the High School Musical movies, Zac Efron has gone on to appear in a number of impressive movie roles in some decent films. While continuing to take the occasional comedy role in movies like 17 Again and That Awkward Moment, Zac has also shown that he is capable of doing serious roles too, with films such as The Lucky One and The Paperboy.
