Golden Globes Red Carpet: Zac Efron Confirms 'New Year's Eve' Role, Will Star Opposite Michelle Pfeiffer

There's been plenty of speculation over which of Hollywood's hottest will countdown to midnight in Garry Marshall's ensemble rom-com "New Year's Eve." So let's put on our party hats and bust out the bubbly, because we've got some scoop on one star who'll definitely be watching the ball drop: Mr. Zac Efron. Last we heard, the 23-year-old actor was mulling a part as a bike messenger, so he must have accepted the role, as he told MTV News' Josh Horowitz that the flick would be his next project now that filming on "The Lucky One" has concluded.


"I'm starting a movie in a couple of weeks called 'New Year's Eve,' with Garry Marshall," he confirmed to MTV News. "It's got a great cast."

Indeed, it has. With names like Robert De Niro, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary Swank and Sienna Miller attached, it's giving "Valentine's Day" a run for its star-studded money. But the big question is: Who will Zac share scenes with? Why, none other than Michelle Pfeiffer.

"My scenes are with Michelle Pfeiffer," Zac said with a grin. "Yeah, not a bad co-star." With Michelle reportedly playing a corporate secretary trying to fulfill her resolutions with just a few hours left, we're quite curious to see how Zac factors into that equation. Do we smell some cougar/cub potential? I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Are you excited Zac will be in "New Year's Eve"?
