Zac Efron and Betty White: Together at Last

Remember when Betty White Mania swept the country and we spent our days feverishly petitioning every entertainment organization on Earth to feature her in a promo, cameo or guest appearance?

Well, pop culture ADHD may have moved on to a new target, but we're still reaping the delayed benefits of our earlier obsession, as White has just scored another high profile gig -- this time as a Dr. Seuss character.

Is there anything she can't do?

According to USA Today, America's grandmother will be playing an actual grandmother as she gives voice to a character in the upcoming new animated 3-D adventure "The Lorax," which adapts the beloved 1971 book by Dr. Seuss about a wee beastie who jumps on a stump to preach the importance of ecological responsibility.

And White isn't the only big name talent on board, as Zac Efron will play the grandkid who kicks off the adventure when he tries to find out what happened to all the missing trees in his burb.

As for the Lorax himself, whom USA Today also scored a first look of? He'll be voiced by lovable curmudgeon Danny DeVito. Former "Daily Show' comedians Ed Helms and Rob Riggle are also on board to play his evil, environment destroying adversaries, who ravage the countryside in order to earn a few dirty dollars. It's a message that is near and dear to DeVito's heart.

"Look, I don't want to be gruff about it, but we've got to wake up and smell the oil burning," DeVito said. "I feel sometimes the only way to get things done is shake people up a little bit, and the Lorax is not a guy who pussyfoots around. He's not a guy who uses kid gloves. No, no, the Lorax means business."

And now so does Betty White. Score another one for internet persistence.
