The vampire sucked the life out of the popular high school heartthrob.

Girls, of all ages, now opt to date a than a basketball jockey? It’s now yes to and no to ?

Troy Bolton, played by , who was indeed the dream of teens once in High School Musical is now behind the shadows of a vampire. Yes. Teens would never fall for jockeys, instead, they’d love to fall for vamps.

True enough Zac’s latest film, the incumbent romance “Charlie St. Cloud” was an official box office disaster. Everyone asked what had happen to the once golden Zac? Well, the vampire just sucked his life out.

“Robert is the new King of all the screaming girls at this moment and they have forgotten Zac. You only need to look at this years MTV Movie Awards, when Zac entered the girls were excited but when Robert walked in the place went nuts,” relationship expert Matt Titus says. “Twilight has changed everything and Robert Pattison gets it. He says nothing, and acts mysteriously. This is what teenage girls really want right now.”

Zac had seen it coming. “Hollywood only cares about making money,” one producer tells me. “We honestly don’t care if Zac is singing ‘Hello Dolly’ or playing a vampire, as long as he sells tickets. That fact that ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ dropped a whopping 60% in its second week following a very mediocre opening tells me Zac should speak less, smile more and take off as much clothing as possible. Or else he will end up like countless other pin-up popcorn actors and actresses that decided that they all of a sudden wanted to be taken seriously when all their fans.”

“According to Box Office Mojo, ‘Charlie’ has raked in a mere $23 million since opening July 30. It’s budget: $44 mil.”

“I blame an overcrowded pin-up boy field. Yes, Rob Pattinson is in that jam-packed yearbook but so is Taylor Lautner, some ‘Gossip Girl’ boys, Shia LaBeouf, the ‘Glee’ guys and at least one Jonas brother. All these young dudes are now starting to cancel each other out. I think at this point, there’s only so many dewy-eyed sulking guys girls can keep track of.” Joe Neumaier,  a film critic, said when asked about his views.

The columnist Joe Piazza agrees with this. “Efron is in an oversaturated market for adorably coiffed young gentlemen of a certain age with nothing to differentiate him. He isn’t as edgy as , as heartthrobby as Chace Crawford or as cutesy as Bieber. His claim to fame, ‘High School Musical’ was too quickly eclipsed by ‘Glee.’ There is no demand out there right now for a product that is specifically Efron.”

“I don’t think Zac Efron has a career problem. I just think that he made a movie that didn’t connect with an audience. This film didn’t have mass appeal and was a departure from Efron’s normal roles. His audience didn’t follow. He needs to choose his next role wisely, but he absolutely still has a career,” Tina Wells, Author of tween book series Mackenzie Blue & CEO, Buzz Marketing Group told me.

Let’s just wish that, Zac Efron, 22, is still on TV until he reached 23.
