So apparently there are a few casting rumors floating about that Ryan Gosling and Zac Effron will be in the new Star Wars. Gosling is up for (most likely) Ben Skywalker while Effron will be taking on the roll of Jacen Solo a.k.a Darth Caedus.

A nice video for those who don't want to go to Yahoo and read their article.

Can I be the first to say that Disney REALLY needs to rethink this? No offense to Ryan and Zac, I'm sure they are big Star Wars fans in their own right. But I just do not see them as Ben and Jacen, respectively. And Maker knows who Disney thinks gets to play Jaina Solo. Prolly Bridgette Mendler or something!

Actually, I could let Mendler slide. She was pretty okay in Lemonade Mouth.

On topic: Do you think Gosling and Effron would fit in the SW universe?

Both are miles better than Hayden Christensen!

Gosling I'm on board with. Efron I still picture as the High School Musical kid, but that's what, 5 years ago? Dunno what he's done since.

A couple things wrong with that report.


  1. The guy is SPECULATING who these two actors might be playing. The source gave no such information outside of Gosling going in for Skywalker's son.
  2. The use of the EU characters Ben and Jacen. You should stop clinging to any hope that will happen.

I use the EU characters because people will jump to that conclusion anyway.

Wait...what?
We're supposed to call Zac Efron an "actor' now?

I have seen a couple of his recent movies. He isn't all that bad. I won't shun him because he did movies for teens when he was a teen.
