Looks like his stint as a Wildcat has paid off for High School Musical hottie Zac Efron.
The 22-year old hunky actor looked in fine form as he played some hoops during a break in the action at the LA Lakers game at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday night.
As funnyman turned late-night talk show host George Lopez looked on, Efron was all-smiles as he showed off his athletic skills, as the Lakers defeated the Phoenix Suns 121-102.
Efron recently wrapped shooting the drama The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, in which he stars in the title role as a young man overcome by grief after the death of his younger brother.
Oscar winner Kim Basinger co-stars as Efron’s mother.
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud opens in theaters in 2010.
