'High School Musical' star Zac Efron is abandoning his squeaky-clean image to tackle the role of a cocaine smuggler in Warner Bros.' upcoming film 'Snabba.' The Disney heartthrob has snagged the lead role and a producer credit on the remake of Swedish thriller 'Snabba Cash.'

Efron has made a name for himself as a clean-living teen idol, with starring roles in family fare like the 'High School Musical' trilogy, '17 Again' and 'Hairspray,' but like many child stars before him, he's ready to break free from the cookie-cutter mold.
