Zac Efron was in fine form. The 25-year-old heartthrob set pulses racing as he strutted bare-chested with his shirt wide open while practicing his game on the Los Angeles set of Townies on Tuesday. Zac, who plays a frat boy in the comedy, alternated between swinging a baseball bat and bouncing a basketball during what looked like rehearsals.
All eyes were not on the object in hand but on Zac’s sculpted chest and six-pack abs, which looked like a work of art in the sun. Zac was getting ready to shoot a scene, sprinting around in flip flops – although sometimes barefoot – and grey track pants that were tugged down slightly to reveal his shorts underneath. The young actor was surrounded by beer cans, which wasn’t surprising considering he plays a college boy whose antics affect the lives of his neighbours.
Zac broke his hand last month during a fight sequence with his co-star Dave Franco, but his injury seems to have healed nicely. The blue-eyed star explained what happened during a recent appearance on Live With Kelly And Michael. ‘I broke it a couple days ago on set during filming, it was during a stage fight with Dave Franco,’ Zac said at the time.
‘I had to go back to work so I couldn’t really wear a cast. So they [the medics] put like a titanium plate in it and a bunch of screws. ‘I don’t know why I’m telling you this. My hand in theory is back to normal, it just looks really gross.’ The film also co-stars Rose Byrne, Seth Rogen and Lisa Kudrow.
