Several months ago, rumors began circulating that Ryan Gosling, Leonardo DiCaprio and Zac Efron were being probed for roles in the 2015 "Star Wars: Episode VII" film. DiCaprio apparently passed up the opportunity because of his commitment to star in "Robotech," and Gosling's involvement was quickly squashed by his representatives. Efron, however, recently confirmed that he met with Disney to discuss the film.

The three leading men of "That Awkward Moment" played a game of "most likely to ..." with Josh Horowitz of MTV, and when asked which of the three is most likely to be in a "Star Wars" movie (stealth level: black mamba), Efron had no choice but to respond.

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

Efron's involvement is not the only potential cast member in question. With this promising update, the 26-year-old joins "Girls" Adam Driver, who has a "Star Wars" rumor of his own. Despite a serious lack of information from director J.J. Abrams, we at least know that the script is finished, and that Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are all on board.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
