Should Zac Efron or James Franco Play Ronald Reagan?
Zac Efron may be moving from teen idol to Commander-in-Chief.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that a biopic of President Ronald Reagan is in the works and it suggests the High School Musical hunk – or possibly jack-of-all-trades James Franco – should be contenders to land the presidential role. HR also hints that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and rising star Andrew Garfield be considered for the role of Reagan.
There’s no official word yet from any of the suggested actors on playing the actor-turned-politician.
The Teflon President was already the subject of a 2003 miniseries, The Reagans, starring James Brolin. The film was criticized by conservatives for having a “left-wing bias.” Will this new film be the subject of such criticism? Probably not, as screenwriter Jonas McCord called the original miniseries “insulting” and “condescending.”
