Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio have reportedly met with Disney to discuss roles in Star Wars Episode 7. Drive actor Gosling, who first found fame in US TV show The Mickey Mouse Club as a child star, is up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son, according to Latino Review. Efron has been in discussions for an unconfirmed role while DiCaprio was ruled out since his meeting. Meanwhile, Samuel L Jackson recently revealed that he has no idea if he’ll star in Star Wars Episode 7.
The actor, who played Jedi Master Mace Windu, bumped into JJ Abrams at George Lucas’s wedding but still has no clue if he will be cast in the new film.
He told AP: ‘JJ was there, I was there. I was like [raises eyebrows] and he was like [shrug], and he just went about his business. I don’t know what that means.’
Jackson added: ‘Harrison [Ford] was there too, and he was like [shrug]. I just think it would be cool to have some of us that people relate to as being part of the Star Wars franchise to give entire to the new characters that they’re going to bring to whatever the new thing is. It kind of makes it an easier entrance.’
Star Wars Episode 7 is set for release in 2015.
