It was previously rumored that actor Zac Efron, who is more famous for his Disney roots and the succeeding string of romcoms, is being considered for a role in Disney’s Star Wars Episode VII. While most people shot the idea down, Efron himself confirmed in a recent MTV interview that he has been in a meeting regarding Star Wars Ep VII:
Efron admitted, “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?”
However, don’t take this to mean as an indication that Efron has been cast. Another auditionee, Saoirse Ronan, has already revealed that Star Wars Episode VII is ”something that everyone’s gone up for,” which probably meant that competition is tough, and it can be difficult to predict the likelihood of Efron actually getting signed.
