Rumor: Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling up for Star Wars: Episode VII?

July 25th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr 2 Comments

Latino Review are saying that they have a Star Wars: Episode VII casting scoop! According to their sources Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling are both contenders for lead roles.

They say that Gosling’s character would be Luke Skywalker’s son in a storyline set some 30 years after Return of the Jedi, but aren’t sure about Efron. They speculate a son of Han Solo.

They also mention, almost as an afterthought, that Leonardo DiCaprio was up for a role in Star Wars but passed it up for…..Robotech?

More as we get it

    I so hope they don’t go in that direction they don’t need those pretty boys where’s the grit. Beside Star Wars is a powerful enough name draw they don’t need to attach well known actors for the their box office draw.

      I don’t like Efron for the movie, I can see Gosling in one movie maybe, but not as a staple of the franchise. It will be interesting to see what Disney does with the first movie.
