Me and Orson Welles Premiere

Filed under: Uncategorized — Carly J Hallman @ 4:55 pm

Hollywood hunk Zac Efron received a warm Texas welcome at Austin’s historic Paramount Theatre Monday night. The small but enthusiastic crowd was abuzz anticipating the arrival of Efron and his “Me and Orson Welles” co-star, Christian McKay.

The premiere attracted a surprisingly diverse mix of fans. While a number of teenage girls did show up to gawk at Efron, many older movie-buffs braved the cold (and the aforementioned teenage girls) for the opportunity to catch a glimpse of cult-favorite Richard Linklater.

Linklater, no stranger to Austin red carpets, noted the “daunting presence of [actor] Christian McKay.” McKay, usually seen on stage, seems to be adjusting well to his move to film, but noted in his crisp British accent, “I keep taking my lesson.” McKay will further his film education in the upcoming “Mr. Nice” and Woody Allen’s next currently-untitled film.

Efron, sporting his trademark disheveled coiffure, did not talk to reporters, but satisfied the tweenage crowd’s wishes by signing autographs and posing for countless pictures.

“Me and Orson Welles” opens nationwide on Dec. 11.
