A panini beard. Frosted hair that's maybe half a foot high. And that's not even talking about the vest and shorts...

Zac Efron is playing someone called Flicker in "The Beach Bum," written and directed by Harmony Korine ("Spring Breakers," "Julien Donkey-Boy"). The movie stars Matthew McConaughey and Isla Fisher, and it's expected out later this year.

According to Collider, "The Beach Bum" follows a "rebellious stoner named Moondog (McConaughey) who lives life by his own rules." That brief synopsis is not a lot to go on. But now the first photo of Efron in character are making the rounds, and they are too perfect to ignore:

If Panini Beard becomes a serious trend after this...

Good for Efron for being so willing to experiment. He was once best known for "High School Musical," but now he has a hit with "The Greatest Showman," and will soon go in a very different direction playing serial killer Ted Bundy in "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile." We'll have to keep an eye on this "Beach Bum" madness to see when it will be released into the wild.
