When I heard Zac Efron had been cast as the head fraternity character in the movie Townies, I just rolled my eyes. As always, I had a sneaking suspicion that Hollywood would portray the “frat boys” in the film as super douches, and thanks to photos of Efron on set that have recently surfaced, my suspicions have been confirmed.
They’ve really got this dude rocking a mid-bicep frat tat? The age of the frat tat has come and gone, but even when it was acceptable, nobody got it on their fucking bicep. He’s not in a biker gang, for fuck’s sake. Not that any biker gang would allow a member to wear skinny jeans and a t-shirt that looks like it was borrowed from John Travolta in the movie Grease.
The film’s IMDb page doesn’t yield very much information about the plot, but does say it is “a comedy centered on a frat boy whose behavior affects a local neighbor’s family life.”
I look forward to watching it on HBO in a few years with an extreme hangover.
