Zac Efron’s new film “The Greatest Showman” is heating up–literally–after a fire broke out on the set while Hugh Jackman filmed the final scene on Sunday. In the movie, Hugh’s character, P.T. Barnum, saves his assistant Phillip (played by Zac) from a burning house, but the pyrotechnics malfunctioned resulting in a real fire.

Chance the Rapper did alright for himself at Sunday night’s GRAMMYs. After winning three trophies, he closed out the show with a performance. The pieces of hardware he took home weren’t the only accolades Chance had to handle. Among the outpour of supporters for his big night was Zac Efron, who live-tweeted his excitement as Chance kept winning.
The tweets celebrated Chance’s win in the “Best New Artist” category. Zac kept tweeting as Chance won the “Best Rap Album” and “Best Rap Performance” awards, too. The “Baywatch” star had his number three hat on as he shared how inspired he is by an artist like Chance.

In the latest trailer for “Baywatch,” Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have a disagreement about what patriotism really means. The ad, which ran during Sunday Night’s Super Bowl, features some footage viewers might recognize from earlier trailers. But one new shot might have some diehard fans pledging allegiance.
At the very end of the trailer, Zac and The Rock are about to to take off down the beach on a rescue mission. Each has to tear his pull-away pans off in order to make the most of the signature “Baywatch” slow-motion run. But Zac’s running gear has The Rock questioning his national pride.
That’s because Zac is wearing a star-spangled speedo. The tiny red, white and blue swimsuit gives Zac a chance to show off his patriotism, but The Rock disagrees.

Zac Efron survived shooting “Baywatch” with incentive from co-star Alexandra Daddario. The actor shared a post on Instagram detailing a day that made all the work worth it: the day Alexandra gave him a little kiss. Alexandra’s character, Summer Quinn, plays the love interest of Zac’s character, Matt Brody, so it’s interesting to see the connection play out off-screen. A kiss on the cheek is hardly enough to hint at anything serious, though.
Check out Zac’s post below.
Could love be in the air?

Zac Efron may have starred in three movies in 2016, but that doesn’t mean they were all hits. As a matter of fact, “Dirty Grandpa,” starring Zac and Robert DeNiro, was so bad that the young actor landed a spot on the Razzie Award shortlist.
The “Baywatch” star is a semi-finalist as the “Worst Actor” for his role in both “Dirty Grandpa” and”Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.” If nominated, Zac could be facing off against Liam Hemsworth who is also listed as a semi-finalist for his horribly reviewed role in “Independence Day: Resurgence.”
Contenders for a Razzie nomination also include Julianne Hough as “Worst Supporting Actress” and Shailene Woodley for “Worst Actress” in “The Divergent Series: Allegiant.”

Zac Efron is still getting his sea legs in the latest trailer for “Baywatch.” Based on the first trailer, it was clear that Zac’s character is the new guy in town. The latest trailer for the movie shows Zac getting schooled by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as he learns the “Baywatch” ropes. Zac and Dwayne go toe-to-toe in a race in which they’re both carrying refrigerators.
After the duo is done flexing, they meet the movie’s villain, played by Priyanka Chopra. As Zac’s character points out in the trailer, “Everything that you guys are talking about sounds like a really entertaining but farfetched TV show.”
