Songs From the Movie Starring Zac Efron

With Zac Efron dancing in his tighty whities with Nicole Kidman, do we really need any other reason to see The Paperboy? Wonder what song they dance to on The Paperboy Soundtrack, but then again, does it really even matter, it's Zac dancing. Toss in 80s heart throb John Cusak, need I say more?

But wait, there's more, get this, Zac's older brother is played by Matthew McConaughey. Although McConaughey managed to get his character in Magic Mike to play bongoes, it's unlikely he convinced dramatic director Lee Daniels to include any djembes music on The Paperboy O.S.T. of this dramatic crime thriller.

Mariah Carey who worked with Daniels on Precious is not appearing in the film but is contributing a song on the Soundtrack to The Paperboy. Carey has already announced on her Twitter feed back in May 2012 that she wrote an original song for the movie called "Mesmerized".

The Paperboy starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, Macy Gray, John Cusack & Nicole Kidman was first screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2012, at the Film and Art Festival Two Riversides in Poland in August was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 14th and the New York Film Festival on October 3rd before being released in a limited number of theaters in the U.S. on October 5, 2012. The Blu-ray / DVD was released on January 22, 2013 and is also available to watch instantly online.

Zac's latest movie in 2013 is At Any Price co-starring Dennis Quaid Footloose, Playing For Keeps where he plays an aspiring race car driver. The movie was first screened in Canada at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and was released in theaters April 26, 2013.

The Paperboy Movie Trailers - Starring Zac Efron & Nicole Kidman

The Paperboy Movie Trailers on iTunes

The Paperboy is full of surprises including Macy Gray playing a dramatic role with her distinctive voice also narrating the movie based on a true story. Gray last worked with director Lee Daniels playing Neisha in the 2005 movie Shadowboxer. Can't wait to hear if Macy will be contributing any music to the movie.

Juxtaposed in the middle of the trailer is a kind of doo-wop 1960s girl group singing "That Man is Dangerous". If you recognize the song, please leave a note in the guestbook below. I wanna know if it's an original song written just for the movie or is a classic from Motown?

Zac Efron last surprised us with what looked like an improvised dance number with Michelle Pfeiffer on the end credits to Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve but in an interview with Advocate magazine, Efron says it was Kidman who improvised the dancing in The Paperboy.

Perhaps you'll remember Nicole Kidman's other seductive dance number which I think she may have also been wearing a pair of pedal pushers in the movie To Die For. Leave a note in the guestbook if you can verify that bit of trivia.
