Ryan Gosling & Zac Efron Top Contenders For Star Wars 7 Leads?” asks a headline from Perez Hilton, who rarely has the answers.

The blogger claims Gosling and Efron have “met with Disney for key roles in the next installment of the Star Wars saga!”

Perez alleges that Gosling will portray “the son of Luke Skywalker” while Efron is set to play “the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia.”

“We super hope it’s true!” exclaims the “reporter.”

Well, instead of sitting here twiddling our thumbs and hoping like Perez, Gossip Cop actually checked on the factualness of this story, and we’re told it’s simply not accurate.

A rep for Gosling tells us the report is “not true.”

And an Efron insider says the young star is also NOT involved in the film.
