Zac Efron Fuels Star Wars VII Rumours
Zac Efron teases Star Wars VII role...

After more questions about his involvement in 'Star Wars VII', it looks as though Zac Efron has teased a potential 'Star Wars' role…

It's not the first time Zac Efron has been linked to a role in the galaxy far, far away… but it looks as though the young, Disney actor has once again teased a role in the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode VII'. But could Efron be the next generation of Jedi?

In an interview with 5 News, the 26-year-old actor hinted that he may appear in 'Star Wars VII'… even if he can't really talk about it.

"I don't know," he said. "I have no idea on that… I don't know, there's irons in the fire, so to speak. I don't like to talk about anything too early because it takes a while to get these things done right and… who knows."

Of course, it certainly sounds as though there's a lot more to this than a mere rumour… and while he may be reluctant to talk about it, Efron has already admitted in a previous interview that he has auditioned for a 'Star Wars' role.

"Yeah, I just went and met with them," he said, about his 'Star Wars' audition. "So I don't know. It would be cool. I love [the Star Wars movies], I love them, but… who knows?"

Obviously, it looks as though he was perhaps a lot closer to a part than he realised… and with filming due to begin in May, I can't help thinking that he probably knows if he got the part by now.

But was it good news?

He's certainly been rather coy when it comes to discussing his 'Star Wars' audition… and while he's keen to downplay the whole experience, it seems that may be to cover up any big casting news.

Thankfully, with filming just around the corner, it looks as though we might not have to wait too long to find out. And with a big announcement expected on May the 4th, we might just find out whether Zac Efron is in the movie or not.

Do you think Zac Efron has landed a 'Star Wars VII' role? What kind of part would you like to see him play? Let us know in the comments below…
