Zac Efron Says There's "Irons In The Fire" Regarding A STAR WARS Role

Efron has already confirmed that he (along with 80% of the rest of the actors under 30 in Hollywood) has read for a part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII, but it seems even this close to the movie's shoot date he may still be in with a chance of nabbing a role.

As things finally begin to take shape with Star Wars Episode VII (that is, we're expecting an announcement of some kind May 4th, and ..umm...some original cast members have been spotted around London!), one young actor could still be in for a shot at one of the highly sought after roles. We had heard that most of the main cast were in place, but that there were still some roles to fill -- could one of 'em go to Zac Efron? While speaking to 5 News about his new comedy Bad Neighbors, Efron says that although he doesn't want to talk too much about it, there are "irons in the fire".

Do you think Efron would be a good addition to the cast? Which type of character could you see him playing? Sound off below.

i have heard he is hilarious in neighbors
Mrcool210 - 4/28/2014, 1:23 PM
Good, the dude is a good actor, he was stuck doing the shitty disney roles, if he had a star wars role id be happy.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/28/2014, 1:24 PM
Zac Efron is actually a good actor so I'm okay with this. If it happens.
Starfox - 4/28/2014, 1:25 PM
Yeah he's a Good Actor. Wouldn't mind seeing him in a SW Film.
ezio619 - 4/28/2014, 1:25 PM
mrcool-yeah i have seen him in clips from lower budget films he has done and he is good ,movies such as me and orson welles and he has pretty good comedic timing too

Really, because it seems his role in 'bad neighbours' is just an extension of the basketball scene in the third high school musical film (that I unfortunately have drummed into my head due to years of family members watching it over and over)
ezio619 - 4/28/2014, 1:27 PM
i just want some official star wars new already, may 4th is this sunday, hopefully we get some casting announcements
batz11 - 4/28/2014, 1:28 PM
Dude's not a horrible actor, could see him in a role...

If he's in Ep 7 he definitely knows by now if the production is properly gearing up. Never seen Efron in anything so I won't judge, yet. I love Seth Rogen though so I'll be seeing Neighbours at the weekend. Maybe I'll judge Efron then! But if I wake up Sunday to casting announcements that do not include confirmation on Hamill, Ford and Fisher one way or the other, I will be most unimpressed.

A good actor and a lot of people is saying bad neighbours is hilariuos

im looking forward to star wars,i rewwatched a new hope a few days ago, realllly good movie, but right now im focusing on the other big space epic coming this year starring a raccoon with a machinegun and i hope that is good rightnow
SuperCat - 4/28/2014, 1:31 PM
Keep his ass away from Star Wars.
sKeemAn - 4/28/2014, 1:34 PM
Anything this guy is just screams teeny bopper to me. I say hell to naw!
Mrcool210 - 4/28/2014, 1:35 PM
he was good in movies such as charlie saint cloud, shitty movie, but he was good in it, i also liked him in 17 again. So i think that Star wars would be the big break he needs to shake off those high school musical movies.
Indy - 4/28/2014, 1:35 PM
I don't mind if he's in star wars maybe he can be Han son.

BoomTubeB - 4/28/2014, 1:45 PM

DEATHSTR0KE - 4/28/2014, 1:50 PM
To hell with Disney.
McGee - 4/28/2014, 1:51 PM's like looking into a mirror!

Is it sad that I know what movie that's from?

Apparently Ford, Hamill, and Fisher are all in London right now. There was an article on Hypable this morning. Though about posting an article, then realized I don't care about Star Wars...
Destined - 4/28/2014, 1:55 PM
@GliderMan I always said Zac could play the grown version of James Rogers, Cap and Widow's son. Zac is a nice cross b/t Chris and Scarlett, just make his hair redder and there it is.
HelaGood - 4/28/2014, 1:56 PM
speaking of irons in the fire...he would be a good Danny Rand for the Iron Fist show
CaptainAmerica31 - 4/28/2014, 1:56 PM
He's actually a good actor. He just gets crap for his Disney self
GenerationX - 4/28/2014, 1:56 PM
