Seems like High School Musical star, Zac Efron, 20, is tired of his squeaky-clean image.

Sunday night at the Teen Choice Awards, which he attended with High School Musical co-star and girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, 20, he told OK!, "I'm looking for something new and exciting to do. I want to do something dark or a comedy. There's tons of icons that I would love to work with on something new and exciting."

Doesn’t seem like he is headed towards a dark character yet, as Paramount Pictures announced last year that Efron would be starring the lead role in the remake of Footloose.

So far in Zac’s career, he has been the go-to guy for musicals, High School Musical, High School Musical 2, High School Musical: Senior Year, and Hairspray.
