Talan Torriero to Play Aquaman?

Former Laguna Beach star Talan Torriero has his eyes set on playing sea king superhero Aquaman in the upcoming film Justice League of America. Here are some snippets from Talan‘s interview with MTV Movies:

By the way, your dream role surprised me. Most people pick a superhero. You know what I really am pushing for? I really want to be Aquaman in Justice League. … It’s a superhero movie, so it’s probably hard to even get in there, but I really want it badly. I really want to be Aquaman so badly.

Wait, what? Nobody wants to be Aquaman. He’s ridiculous. Don’t be silly. Well I’m a pretty realistic person. People say, ‘If you could be anyone you want right now, who would you be?’ I could sit here and say, ‘Oh, Johnny Depp or Jack Nicholson,’ but is it realistic for me to say that right now? No. But I could be Ryan Reynolds or Paul Walker right now. I love Ryan Reynolds’ career, I really look up to him a lot.

Word on the street is that you want to be Zac Efron as well. I auditioned for Link in Hairspray [on Broadway], yeah.

What about Hairspray excited you? I love the musical, I watched all the movies and [listened to] the soundtrack, and it just really captured me. But Broadway, it’s a dream. Who doesn’t want to be under the bright lights on Broadway? And sing. I gave it my best.

Auditions for Justice League began last month. Big names tried out: Adam Brody (Fox’s “The O.C.”), Joseph Cross (“Running With Scissors”), D.J. Cotrona (“Windfall”), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Grindhouse”), Michael Angarano (“Sky High”), Teresa Palmer (“Wolf Creek”), Max Thieriot (“Jumper”), rapper Common as well as “Friday Night Lights” stars Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Porter.

    Forget him, you mean to tell me the idiots in HW are making a movie on “Aquaman”!? How stupid is that, who the heck even remember “Aquaman”??? It must be a sad state of creativity in HW because no one can seem to come up with original/new good movie ideas anymore.

    Um I dont like it.

    And #4, no Aquaman is going to be in the Justice Leauge movie, not his own movie.

  • ohmy

    #2 he’s from the MTV show Laguna Beach and I think he dated that Pussycat Doll frontwoman Nicole.

    this is REALLY funny thing to read after just watching the whole season of Entourage devoted to Aquaman casting! And, gosh the previous link about Justin Chatwin playing super-something too was kinda disturbing. I mean most superhero movies turned out to be really good, but all the cool ones have already been taken and i wish they’d stop desperately looking for crappy ones.

  • Miranda
