Zac Efron is certainly expanding his acting range in his new role in Parkland, where he stars alongside acclaimed actors Paul Giamatti, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thorton, Tom Welling and James Badge Dale.

The film centers around the chaotic events that occurred at Dallas' Parkland Hospital on the day (Nov. 22, 1963) President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Efron plays Jim Carrico, the young doctor on duty when JFK was rushed into the medical facility.

Parkland seeks to retell the "story you know" about the assassination, while introducing the "people you don't."
