Zac Efron on 'Star Wars' Role: 'There's Irons In the Fire'!

Zac Efron suits up to attend the premiere of his new movie Neighbors on Monday evening (April 28) at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, Calif.

The 26-year-old actor was recently asked to comment on speculation that he is in talks for a role in the upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode VII.

“I don’t know. 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 you know, it takes a while to get these things done right and who knows,” Zac said.

    zac looks great



  • mariann

    He’d be horrible. New actors and characters should be cast.

  • John

    That would be a No for my vote!

  • Com on

    What happened to his face? He looks like he’s smelling s***. My vote No

  • Gale

    Now that is how you wear a suit. Almost doing it as good as the British.

  • Lana

    He’s so hot!! Good grief.

  • IMO

    I’d love to see Zac in Star Wars , he’d be perfect. He looks handsome at the premiere, nice to see that incredible smile. The movie is going to Rock.

  • Bill

    Sure, why not. Liked him in Neighbors. Let him expand his resumé.

  • Mickey

    Personally, I hate the Star Wars series. Could never get into them. If he gets it, I’m definitely going to be happy for him, but the sky is going to have to fall before I see another Star Wars movie. Anyways, I can’t wait for Neighbors. It’s so close! Zac stopped traffic at that premiere, that’s for sure lol.

  • Michelle

    He’s too handsome, this is too much lol.

  • Polly

    No thanks, series need actors that can in fact act, not just moan and suck

  • Lucee

    Haha, I enjoyed the interview :-) Zac just keeps getting better and better with age.

  • Meg

    Sure, why not. Let’s go!! Although I want to see Zac in another drama or even a thriller.

  • Beth

    Zac is looking very dapper in that tux. You guys should check out his new vine.

  • Claudia

    I’ve never seen any Star Wars movie, and i love Zac, but i doubt i’d watch it even if he’s there, althought if he gets a role, then i’ll be happy for him :)

    He looks sooo good!!! Looove you, Zac! <3

  • LOLA

    He isn’t the same anymore, his face depress me

  • June

    Zac is so beautiful. Everybody at that premiere was on their game. #fashionswag

  • Rich

    Let the guy act the part, I think he can do it.

  • kylie

    @LOLA: I kind of feel the same…like his face has seen better days. I’m not feeling the hair either. Meh. Well, I do hope the movie does well for him.

  • Kelley

    His eyes are so blue, it’s seriously not fair :-(

  • Brandi

    Gorgeous, gorgeous man. Whatever role he’s in, I’m seeing it. Be blessed Zac.

  • LOLA

    @kylie: Finally someone understand me!!! I don’t find him so WOW like others do it, for me the old Zac was so much better in all senses

  • kylie

    @LOLA: I know what you mean. Kind of sad.

  • LOLA

    @kylie: tbh is really sad for him ’cause some people only want him for his looks

  • OK

    WOW I was there and he is even more handsome in person!!

  • OK

    @LOLA and @ Kyle Actually Zac looked really fantastic tonight and he is getting great reviews from the critics. I would love to see him in “Star Wars”.

  • OK

    I may think Zac is handsome but I always have said he is very talented as an actor.

  • OK

    I have always said “Neighbors” is not my kind of movie but it is hilarious.
    I can’t believe how fantastic Zac is as Teddy Sanders.

  • OK

    My friend was speechless when he saw Zac up close.

  • OK

    Would love to run my fingers through his hair.

  • Jen

    I thought the director said he was going to cast a whole team of unknown actors? Personally, I think the director should stick to that outlook.

    I agree, his face has definitely seen better days; that fall sure did something to it. His eyes are striking though, always jealous with people with blue eyes.

  • louli

    whats going on with his face ?why its look like he got hit by a train ? he gotta stop doing cocaine his face is looking more horrible each time i see him

  • Lilly

    What the h…? lol. He looks like he just inhaled one year of his fart!

  • Lilly

    @LOLA: Drug addiction’s gotta pay somehow and it shows!

  • Welly

    Never seen a Star Wars movie. He won”t be good in one. He looks good. He has changed over the years.

  • hannah

    He looks great, love this suit on him! Gorgeous eyes :-)

  • OK

    One hater changing in their name to talk trash.

  • OK

    You can lie to yourselves all you want but you can’t lie to Zacs fans. We can see he looks great in these pics..
    Instead of hating on someone so much better than you why don’t you go find a post with someone you like?
    Warn you now all celebrities are human just like us. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time.
    At least Zac admitted his and got help on his own. God Bless you Zac , I will love you forever.

  • yets

    where is his lading lady?

  • kylie

    His face does seem off now after his accident. Anyway, his eyes still sparkle so that’s a plus. It’s just my opinion and no one has to agree. Beauty is subjective right? Anyway, hope the movie continues to get good reviews for him.

  • PaulB

    I didn’t know there’s a need for a drug addict Jedi!

  • Ash

    This man is on fire, so incredibly beautiful. He’s probably more hot in person. He should do whatever he wants to do. If that’s Star Wars than alright.

  • Joyce

    Zac Efron looks better than he ever has. I’m glad he grew up. My mom was drooling over him last night when I came home from college, which was honestly disgusting… But I can’t blame her lol.

  • Meme

    I think Zac got hotter, now he’s pulling in the older women too. Would he go cougar lol.

  • Paula

    @LOLA: if you look on Twitter, Zac is completely fine in the looks department. It’s like 2006 all over again. I’m not complaining but it’s like wow, Zac Efron everywhere. Nothing sad about that. Stars wars… don’t particularly care for the movies, but okay.

  • Toni

    Zac in Star Wars? I don’t know, he could do it probably. I should have been at the premiere, I really should have.

  • Crissy

    How do you brake your jaw and still look like that? I really need answers because it’s just not fair.

  • Julia

    Why can’t Star Wars just release the cast and get it over with. This is getting repetitive and annoying. Zac, Seth, and Dave scrub up nicely at the premiere.

  • Cecelia

    His face looks weird. Wonder why? Wish they would just roll out the cast for the new SW movies instead of keeping people hanging.
