Given the topic of this blog, that title was probably in really poor taste, but if I cared that much about poor taste I probably wouldn’t be writing a celebrity gossip blog. Mega hunk Zac Efron is seemingly trying to drop his bro comedy aesthetic by taking on the role of famed serial killer Ted Bundy who was linked to the murders of over 30 women…hence the poor taste thing.
It’s been announced that Efron will play rapist serial killer Bundy in the new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. If you ask me, that title is a bit of a mouthful, but, then again, I’m sure so is Zac Efron, HEY-O!!!! (Extremely Trite, Shockingly Tasteless and Tacky, mo’ like).
A lot of people are like “Say whaaaaa?” about this casting choice, but I’m actually all for it. When my life long friend Smanielle (real name: Danielle) sent me the link about this casting, I was like OH HELL YEAH! I literally failed grade 10 math because I used to sit home all day on my mom’s computer (search engines were still half new) and look at this website called Crime Library and learn about ever famous murderer ever.
Ted Bundy was definitely one of the serial killers who freaked me out the most because Bundy’s thing was that he was hunky! He was a young, charming, good looking guy so women were like “Yeah, sure, I’ll be alone with you” and then shit would get DARK.
Bitches would 100% get in a car with Zac Efron even if they KNEW it would end with them getting decapitated, so, looks-wise, the casting makes sense.
Talent-wise, sure Efron does a lot of bro level comedy shit, but if you give him a chance and watch him in a movie like “The Paperboy” (which most people didn’t give a chance, but it’s alright!), he actually DOES have the potential to pull off a messed up roll like this, and I’d actually love to see him succeed in this.
ALSO, just yesterday I was complaining about having nothing to blog about and now here I am pounding out 3 blogs in one day. It’s like the celebrity news Gods heard my prayers!
