We all know who Zac Efron is. Although he first came to fame as Troy Bolton in the 2000’s High School Musical movies, he’s developed over the years into a full-fledged actor with an incredible range.

His first acting credit is actually as young Simon Tam from the cult favorite Firefly in 2002. While the series isn’t currently on Netflix, there are quite a few shows with Zac Efron cameos, such as NCIS and Robot Chicken.

Efron is still going strong as an actor and has even expanded into producing. He currently has four movies in production, plus the TV series Killing Zac Efron.

Efron also hosts the Netflix original travel series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron. 

Zac Efron movies on Netflix

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Notorious serial killer Ted Bundy is played by the charismatic Zac Efron in this exclusive Netflix film. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile covers Bundy’s infamous trial from the perspective of Ted’s former lover, Liz, played by Lily Collins.

The movie is rated R, detailing the intense real-life events and actions of serial killer Ted Bundy. The Hollywood rendition is an intense take on the story that won the Official Selection for the Sundance Film Festival. If you want more captivating Ted Bundy content, Netflix also has Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Hairspray (2007)

Another film that was released in the same era as High School Musical is Hairspray, a charming musical about a “pleasantly plump” girl who fights to be respected on a popular TV dance show in 1962.

Zac Efron plays the love interest Link Larkin alongside Niki Blonsky who plays the main character Tracy Turnblad. Other notable roles are John Travolta as Tracy’s mother Eda Turnblad and Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle. Hairspray takes on the social topics of racism and sizeism that are still relevant today.

The Lorax

Zac Efron stars as Ted alongside Taylor Swift as Audrey in the movie The Lorax from Universal Pictures. The film also features Danny Devito as the Lorax and Ed Helmes as the Once-ler. The movie is loosely based on Dr. Seuss’ 1971 picture book of the same name… very loosely based.

Ted Wiggins, a 12-year old who lives in the artificial Thneedville, goes on a journey to find the Onceler to hear the story of what happened to the trees. The story sparks a conversation on the harsh realities of pollution, deforestation, industrialization, and its harmful impact on the environment.

The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist recounts the tale of how the cult classic The Room was made, which is widely considered the worst movie of all time. Greg (Dave Franco) meets Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) at an acting class, where they decide to travel to Hollywood and make a movie.

Zac Efron stars as Dan in the film, an actor who plays Chris in The Room. Although Efron isn’t the main lead in The Disaster Artist, he still adds a lot to the movie as a secondary character.
