Earlier today, the Internet was buzzing with rumors about Ryan Gosling playing Luke Skywalker's son in the upcoming Star Wars trilogy.
But a rep for the actor is denying the claims which originated at Latino Review. It's not much of a stretch to believe that Latino Review got something wrong. But at the same time, Gosling's (unnamed) reps get paid to lie for a living, and on top of that, they allegedly sent their denial to The Huffington Post, which isn't exactly a bastion of journalistic integrity. In other words, this whole thing is one big bullshit sandwich, and if it were possible, I'd believe everyone involved was lying.
Other juicy bits of nonsense include the rumor that Leonardo DiCaprio passed on the role, and that Zac F*cking Efron is also being considered. I never thought fanboys would be able to hate a character more than Jar Jar Binks, but it that Efron rumor turns out to be true, I might have to change my opinion.
