Zac Efron reportedly could be spinning gossip rather than basketballs, for his next character on the big screen.

According to E! Online's Marc Malkin, Zac is considering playing the lead role in the big screen adaptation of "Spin," a new novel from first-time fiction author Robert Rave. The novel is due out August 18.

While Marc reports that no deals are in place, he claims that Zac would play the central role of Taylor Green, a recent midwestern college grad who ends up working for one of the most despised publicists in New York City – the fictional Jennifer Weinstein. The young man literally stumbles into the job, by sneaking his way into one of Jen's trendy downtown restaurant openings.

But the swag, "comes at a price, and Taylor struggles to balance his own definition of sanity with that of Jennie's drug-fueled, high-intensity world," according to the book's description.
