BFFs, Zac Efron is in talks to star in the new Nicholas Sparks film, The Lucky One! But there’s one major problem, the role is a Marine which means he’ll have to shave his head!

Zac Efron is in the middle of making a life changing decision! Will he take the lead role as a Marine in the new Warner Bros., film The Lucky One, or keep his beautiful dirty blond hair?! The 22-year-old heartthrob is in talks to play, Logan Thibault, a Marine, who returns from Iraq on a quest for love. Logan begins his search for a woman whose photograph he carried in his pocket while at war, but they’ve never met!

Even though we would love to see Zac in a hot Marine uniform, we don’t want him to lose his to-die-for hair! Fellow actor Robert Pattinson was faced with the same predicament when he agreed to star in the upcoming film Water for Elephants. Even though R-Patz chopped off his locks, we still love him … we just hope we feel the same for Zac!

The screenplay is adapted from the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks. If you’ve seen any of Sparks’ on screen adaptations, The Notebook, Message in a Bottle, Dear John, then you already know you’ll need a box of Kleenex for this tear jerker!
