Zac Efron Reportedly In Talks for 'Star Wars'!

Rumor has it, Zac Efron is in talks to join the upcoming film Star Wars: Episode VII, according to Latino Review.

The film did not make an appearance at this year’s Comic-Con, but it is expected to be featured heavily at Disney’s D23 Expo next month, where some casting may be announced.

Ryan Gosling is reportedly up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son. Meanwhile, it is unclear what character Zac is in talks to play.

Episode VII is set to take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi.

  • OK

  • Kim

    This could actually work out well for him if he got the part.

    Wish him all the best.

  • cail

    Why God!? why?? what have I done to deserve such punishment!?

  • Mll

    I don’t see why they’re making another Star Wars moive.

  • BO


  • BO

    I knew it I knew it , when he wandered about wearing that Return of Jedi Tee

  • Pam

    Totally stupid and dumb! Franchises like that should be left alone! With efron there, god that would be stupid

  • OK

    If you don’t like him or the franchise don’t go see it.
    Some of us would love to see this.

  • IMO

    For once I hope a rumor is true.


    AH YES!! HE WOULD BE PERFECT! anyways….i’m pretty sure ryan gosling retired from acting for a while……

  • Sharona

    I would LOVE to see Zac in the new SW film! He would be perfect!

  • steph h

    I love zac but I wish just in general they wouldn’t make a new one and leave it alone but if he gets the role I hope we get to see how excellent he is and I love the originals and I just hope that its not awful also because its from Disney but we will just have to wait and see how it works out.

  • leilani

    I don’t understand why he gets offer when his movies aren’t commercially successful.

  • IMO

    @leilani: Are you kidding me? He has a built in fanbase and so does Star Wars. It’s a match made in Heaven.

  • Michael

    All I care about is that Matt Lanter MUST be in this movie!!!

  • OK

    @Leilani Some of Zac’s movies didn’t have the right promotion behind them, his reviews on the other hand were very good for the most part.

  • marie

    noooooooo, zac is a bad actor. sorry not sorry

  • Riley

    They’re both good actors, I wouldnt mind seeing them in star wars. Zac’s recent movies (At Any Price, The Paperboy , Liberal Arts ) got him a lot of good reviews on his acting talent, I’m sure he’ll get amazing reviews for this movie too if he does get the role. Good luck to him and his success :)

  • cece

    looks like he has a good possibility with this movie :)

  • claudia

    zac is cool but they really should leave this alone and just leave star wars at that. hes got great things going on so i dont want this to ruin what he has in the long run.

  • OK

    This would be a great opportunity for Zac or anyone for that matter.

  • OK

    Some of you just refuse to see Zac as anything but Troy Bolton.

  • OK

    As @Riley posted on here earlier Zac did get very good reviews for his acting , especially in his last three movies.

  • OK

    I wish Zac well in this or any other project that he is in.

  • OK

    There really is no need to hate on Zac or any for that matter.

  • HAHA

    yes good that, definitely can see the resemblance and zac is a great actor!

  • OK

    Just love looking at Zac this hour in the morning.

  • OK

    Why lie? I love looking at Zac anytime of the day or night.

  • OK

    Just hoping this rumor is true.

  • OK

    Ryan Gosling Reps just denied their part of the story.

  • OK

    Reps for Zac has still not answered any emails either confirming or denying the story.

  • Lillian

    NO please don’t. just no

  • kelly martineau

    It would be good for Z to get a roll like this. Z career is going places.

  • OK

    Had to take at least one more look before the box is gone.

  • nic

    Box isn’t gone yet.

    Not a huge Star Wars fan… but to see Zac in it, I would stand in line for hours at a midnight showing and I NEVER do that!!! To bad about all the hate… really should give him a chance.

  • quinn

    I wonder why his reps won’t say if it’s true or not?

  • ann

    @quinn: its probably not true however to be connected with ryan gosling and dicaprio is good exposure and professional publicity. they will hold onto this until the production company deny it.

  • OK

    @nic You’re right still here. One last look before bed.

  • Fruitfly

    Zac would be effin perfect for this part, both physically and theatrically. He is master of this type of character (Luke Skywalker).

  • OK

    First thing in the morning again. Nice way to start my day.

  • OK

    One more look before I get ready for work.
