Debuting his new thriller as part of the ongoing Canadian festivities, Zac Efron capped off the week on the red carpet for the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival premiere of "The Paperboy" on Friday (September 14).

The "High School Musical" heartthrob was flanked by director Lee Daniels and co-star David Oyelowo at the Visa Screening Room inside the Elgin Theatre while greeting fans and media before grabbing a seat for the evening screening.

In the upcoming motion picture, 24-year-old Efron is surrounded by big names such as Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey as the stellar cast acts out the story of "a reporter who returns to his Florida hometown to investigate a case involving a death row inmate."

"The Paperboy" also stars John Cusack, Macy Gray and Ned Bellamy while set to make its way into U.S. theaters on a limited basis in early October.
