A few days ago, the news broke that Disney was looking at casting Ryan Gosling as the Son of Luke Skywalker in the upcoming STAR WARS Episode VII, but according to Huffington Post, those rumors were false.
A new report about Ryan Gosling meeting with J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm to discuss “Star Wars: Episode VII” has been denied by the stars representatives.
According to the film site Latino Review, Gosling met with the “Star Wars” production team to discuss playing Luke Skywalker’s son in the highly anticipated sequel. “This is not true,” Gosling’s reps wrote in an email to HuffPost Entertainment.
While I had admitted before that I loved the idea of Gosling taking the role of Luke’s Son Ben Skywalker, its a shame to hear that this rumor was deemed false by the actors reps, at least for now it is.
