Me and Orson Welles gets a trailer.

I couldn't help but notice how little dialogue Zac Efron is given in this trailer. Granted, if the final film simply allows him to be the straight-man romantic to counter-balance the scenery-chewing Christian McKay, then so be it. But for a trailer, one can only wonder if there was a reason that whomever cut this seemed to be hiding Zac Efron's dialogue moments as much as possible. If I were Efron's agent, I'd be more than a little annoyed at this preview. Granted, the film looks entertaining and Efron has proven before that he can act when he must. But his near absence in a trailer that is advertising what is theoretically (at least partially) a star vehicle for him is a little awkward and hopefully just an unfortunate coincidence.
