Warning: May contain spoilers from Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
According to Pop Sugar, Director Joe Berlinger confirmed Efron was his first and only choice to play the character. But it isn’t Zac’s portrayal of Ted Bundy, the dark story line, or the heartbroken wave of emotions viewers feel for Kloepfer that has Netflix subscribers swooning on social media.
It’s Efron’s bare bottom and chiseled torso that some are claiming “stole the show.”
During the first 30 minutes of the movie, Efron is forced to strip down to his birthday suit as his character is being processed. The scene shows the 31-year-old actor putting his ripped abs on full display as he peels his clothing off. Zac then turns and bends over, showing off his curvaceous bare backside as he prepares for a cavity search.
Closer to the end of the film, viewers get a second chance to sneak a peek at the actor’s plump derriere. The scene features Efron’s character being intimate with Carole Ann Boone up against a vending machine while a guard stands in the doorway counting a wad of cash.
While Zac is fully clothed in the scene, his pants are pulled down just enough to give viewers a nice look at his bare bottom.
The moment of passion between Boone and Bundy takes place before the duo are officially husband and wife. After finishing, Carol becomes upset with Bundy for being intimate with her while still being in love with his girlfriend.

Efron’s character twists the situation by proposing to Carol. In a later scene, Zac’s character proposes to Carol while she’s on the witness stand before announcing the duo were legally married under Florida state law.
