Can You Take Zac Seriously in a Song-Free Role?

While I kind of loved Zac Efron in Hairspray, I have mixed feelings about him in certain roles, like the main one in a remake of Footloose, say. Today there's news of more Efron casting, this time in a dramatic role: he's been tapped to play the lead in an independently financed film adaptation of Me and Orson Welles.

It looks like a pretty serious turn for Zac and what's more — there does not appear to be any singing or dancing. He clearly has the kind of charisma that works in upbeat musicals, but I'm not sure he can be taken more seriously than that. So I'm wondering: Can you see Zac in a role without the spontaneous bursts into song and dance?
