Zac Efron interviewed by MTV's resident rumor/scoop hounder Josh Horowitz.All three of the these guys had their names thrown about in connection to rumors of Star Wars Episode VII. Efron said he did meet with Abrams.

I know people are going to say, l" oh god that guy from high school musical!!"

Efron is actually a pretty good actor. Tbh, he sort of has a mark hamill look to him.

He's not going to be in it. JJ is laughing all the way about this too. You do know he said he's met with pretty much EVERYONE. Everyone wants to be in the film. Hell I do. But he's met with hundreds and hundreds. Effron is not a bad actor but he's highly highly likely not going to be in it. Anyone with any kind of connections is meeting with JJ and crew. Everyone wants to be in the revival of SW.

It strikes me as a bit weird that established actors want to be in SW. Yea, it'll provide a nice paycheck and some major exposure, but it always seems to me like the people who "get big" after doing a sci-fi/comic/geek/etc. movie or two lose their interest in those roles, with some exceptions like Hugh Jackman.

I guess SW movies haven't really been marketed primarily on star power, so I'm not opposed to "big stars" being in the film, but it just seems unlikely. I think Abrams and Kennedy will want to create a sort of "nobody is bigger than the movie" atmosphere for the production. Of course, not saying Efron would have that kind of pull, but I recall some other rather large names as being mentioned to be highly interested.

Well, it's Star Wars. One of the biggest movie franchises in history. I can see why big stars want in.

Speaking of, what other big stars have voiced interest in this?

We've all got about 2 years to go. Is an extra 48-72 hours anything substantial really? Hopefully the wait for Australia, if there is a wait, wont be any longer than that.

I'd guess many people here would want to be in a Star Wars film even if they were already huge in Hollywood and SW would do nothing for their career and not pay well. It wouldn't just be a regular job where they pull out if they don't get the exact terms they and their agent demand, more a benefit of being established that they can take on luxury 'fun' roles every now and then.

I think these rumors are maybe the first ones that kinda makes sense. But still they are just rumors and because of the lack of anything else we should stick up with them.
I can assure you that they're not just some speculations coming from a fan's imagination. Some of them were heard by others bloggers too but we decided to post them. They sound pretty plausible and we trust our sources. If they happen to be wrong, well good, the life goes on. Still we have a helluva discussion and the wait is more bearable this way.
So apologies if we dumbed you down with our rumors.
All I'm saying is to be cautious.

I don't see the incentive of someone in production to leak info to a blog. The trades, the Wrap and even Latino Review have sources who are actual friends in the industry. Sometimes, even buying lunch will suffice for a scoop.

Now if the source doesn't know who you are, and vice versa, be on guard with the info.

It's not about the wait itself, it's about the spoilers. We got MoS two weeks later and IM3 a few days (meh) and both the Mandarin twist and the 'Superman snaps Zod's neck' part were spoiled several times over. I was reading an article completely unrelated to movies and someone threw out the "Maybe he should just snap his neck Superman style".

It made it outright impossible to avoid.

The wait won't. Me waiting out the wait will.

You're right. Still I do know the source and I trust him. It remains to be seen if the info from the rumors is legit, but I was very clear that these are just rumors until someone at Disney or Lucasfilm confirms it. So I don't see why some people are so extreme about it.

Australia always seems to get put on the waiting list for just about every film possible. We're not getting the Lego Movie till April.

Since this post seems to have gotten passed over, some of the stars who have expressed interest are Hemsworth bros., Hiddleston, the Rock, and some guy named Leo to name a few.

Sounds good, any of those could do something useful in a SW film.

Not to soon. We've been waiting very patiently here while we've seen Ant-Man get cast twice, , DoFP announcement, and now Lex and Alfred. It will SW turn eventually but we're getting anxious for some type of news here, whether it be casting or even a title. Oh and add Moretz to the names. Magnar has all the news and names in a sticky at the top of the forum

Hopefully sooner rather than later! I feel casting should be announced somewhat soonish. (Also just looked at the list. Totally down for Alex Pettyfer)

JJ confirmed that shooting will begin sometime around May, if not in May. Ali said April 22nd, Devin said May, and even Carrie Fisher said April. So regardless it is in a few months that filming actually starts. So I figure between now and early March we will start getting some casting news. Usually there is right before filming begins. Sometimes months and months in advanced, sometimes at least a month or so prior. It varies. But soon we will be getting casting, with the script completely done and locked, they are probably narrowing down very soon with casting.

We have no idea if that is going to be the case. I'm sure at least one of the females will be a lead.
