Zac Efron: Seth is hilarious

Zac Efron would like Seth Rogen to produce every one of his movies and claims his laugh can make anything funny.

The Hollywood A-listers are currently starring alongside each other in new movie Bad Neighbours, an opportunity that Zac jumped at. The star couldn't help but sing Seth's praises when quizzed on what he was like to work with.

"[Seth's laugh] it makes everything funny. He passes the Seth energy on, for sure. He makes everybody funny," Zac enthused to Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw.

As well as starring in the movie, Seth also took on the role of producer. Zac enjoyed the experience of being ordered around by Seth so much that he found himself wishing it could happen in every one of his films.

"I wish Seth would produce every film I'm in, he's great," he laughed. "Seth really kind of takes the lead, setting the pace and tone for everybody. What Seth is really able to do is ground everything, he's a great idea guy, he's fun to improv with. I've always appreciated Seth's sense of humour, his sensibility. It's so honest, so self-deprecating."

The movie centres on the story of Seth's character, family man Mac Radner, falling out with his frat boy neighbour Teddy Sanders, played by Zac.

The 26-year-old hunk sheds his good-guy image in this movie by portraying the party boy that disrupts Mac's peaceful residence.

"It's a cool movie, man. It's really funny. I guess it's a laugh out loud, crazy comedy," Zac smiled, before joking that his turn as a nasty neighbour was some "Daniel Day" style acting.
