Zac Efron confirms meeting with Disney about Star Wars Episode VII

February 1st, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

In an interview with MTV, actor Zac Efron confirmed a long-standing rumor that he had met with Disney regarding a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.

MTV’s Josh Horowitz asked Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller which of them was most likely to appear in a Star Wars movie. Teller immediately suggested Jordan before reminding Efron that there were early rumors about him in the film.

Then Efron confirmed the rumor that Latino Review broke:

“Yeah, I just went and met with them, so I don’t know. It would be cool. I love [the Star Wars movies], I love them, but…who knows?”

The rumor said that both Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling were up for roles.

Michael B Jordan had previously confirmed trying out for an unspecified Star Wars role
