Zac Efron Delivers In 'The Paperboy' Character Poster

Prepare to see Zac Efron like you've never seen him before—in his underwear!

The erstwhile Troy Bolton stars in "Precious" director Lee Daniel's new "pulpy, sweaty" film, "The Paperboy" (out in limited release tomorrow), as the brother of a reporter (Matthew McConaughey) working to clear a man on death row, all while Zac romances said convict's lady love (Nicole Kidman).

It's a definite departure for the 24-year-old (you have heard all of those golden shower rumors, right?), but we're nonetheless intrigued to see him take on this more mature role. And thanks to our friends at MTV Canada, we're getting a first look at Zac's hunky character poster! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
